GMMOUNT FOR NEW DERBY Willis Kane to Ship Promising Can-: didate to New Orleans. Shandon Farm Nominates Evergold and Prince Bock for Jefferson Mile, Feature Trial Next Tuesday. NEW ORLEANS, La., Jan. 14. Racing secretary Julius Reeder of Jefferson Park has fifteen nominations for the Jefferson Derby, 5,000 added, to be run January 23, over a mile, and expects at least thirty by closing time tomorrow evening. Among the latest nominated was Gailmont, owned by Willis Kane, now at Agua Caliente, scheduled to be shipped to New Orleans this week. Gailmont has not raced either as a two-year-old last year or this year, according to the records, but evidently has shown enough in his recent works on the Pacific Coast to justify his nomination for the Jefferson feature. He is by Gaily, from Zenda, and his owner reserved three stalls at Jefferson for his entry and a pony. Another nomination received was that of Evergold, owned by the Shandon Farm, formerly the Valley Lake Stable, along with that of Prince Rock. The latter raced eleven times during 1930, but Evergold has yet to face a starter. Sandwrack, owned by C. Januska, which finished second to Camp Douglas in a recent start and won in his previous effort here, is a nominee, as is Quando, owned by J. F. ONeil. Both of the J. J. Robinson cracks, Flying Don and Lucky Tom, have been nominated as have Springsteel, owned by S. W. Labrot, and Camp Douglas, four-time winner, owned by J. J. Coughlin. Reeder is carding his first Derby preliminary Friday over six furlongs and expects a maximum field to start in this event. It will carry a value of ,000. The Derby Trial is listed for next Tuesday and is over a mile. The Jefferson Derby will be run one week from Saturday. The unexpected development of Camp Douglas and his conquest of Flying Don a few days ago now makes him one of the real serious contenders for all of the winter stakes for three-year-olds. There will be several other starters in the preliminary and Derby Trial and some of these may develop into contenders that will show ability to go the mile. Thursday being the final day for nominating in the Jefferson Derby, secretary JXeeder expects a last-minute influx of entries and that all of the large stable will be represented.
