WOODWARD NOMINATES FOUR JTetra Khan, Pardee, Faireno and : Sekhmet in Kentucky Derby. jDharity Day to Be Held in Connection With Spring Meeting at Churchill Downs Course. LOTJTSVTT.T.TC, Ky., Jan. 30. William Woodward, who won the Kentucky Derby of 1930 -with Gallant Fox, has sent in four entries for the 0,000 race, which will be run at Churchill Downs Saturday, May 7. Mr. Woodwards quartet is made up of Tetra Khan, Pardee, Faireno and the imported ifilly Sekhmet. Officials of Churchill Downs are pleased with the way nominations are coming in for the Derby, the Clark Handicap, the Kentucky Oaks and the Bashford Manor Stakes, which will be decided during the nineteen days of spring racing. Entries close Wednesday, February 3. Faireno, is the brightest of Mr. Woodwards Derby prospects. This son of Chat-terton Minerva won six races last year, four of them being stakes. He scored brilliantly in the Nursery Stakes at Belmont Park, running the six furlongs in 1:11. He also captured the Junior Champion Stakes at Aqueduct, beating such perform- ers as Lucky Tom, Pardee, Sweeping Light, Mad Pursuit, Cambal and Fall Apple. Pardee, besides finishing third in the Junior Champion Stakes, scored four triumphs, which included the Babylon Handicap. Tetra Khan was not highly tried as a two-year-old, but he displayed dazzling speed in his few starts. There will not be a more fashionably bred candidate in the Derby than Sekhmet This imported filly is by the great Sardanaple, from Prospopee, by Sans Souci H. .She was reserved by trainer Fitzsimmons for three-year-old racing, starting only once as a juvenile to get her racing legs. With this quartet to work on, trainer Fitzsimmons is sure to have worthy representation for the Belair Stud. The Derby victory of Gallant Fox was a most popular one, and many racing followers will be pulling for Mr. Woodwards colors. A charity day will be held in connection with the spring meeting at Churchill Downs. The annual drive of the Louisville community chest has just closed and on the final day announcement was made that Col. M. J. Winn, executive director of Churchill Downs, would set aside one day for the chest, in addition to a 0,000 gift from Churchill Downs. All proceeds of the day will go to the chest and it is estimated that this will mean between 0,000 and 0,000 more. Colonel Winn last fall gave an extra day of racing at Latonia for the charities of Cincinnati, Covington and Newport. With the jockey club paying the purses and all employes donating their services, more than 0,000 was realized.
