GREENTREE DERBY ENTRIES Mrs. Payne Whitney Names Five for This Years Famous Race. f. F. Knebelkamp Represented by His .Crack Gelding, Delivered, Winner of Queen City Handicap. LOUISVILLE, Ky., Feb. 9. Although entries closed last Wednesday, midnight, for the 0,000 added Kentucky Derby and other spring stakes to be run at Churchill Downs during the nineteen days of racing from April 30 to May 21st; nominations continue to arrive. Any entry in the mail at the time of closing is eligible and it may be several days before all from distant points have arrived. Work of compilation is in progress and it is understood that the Derby nominations will be sent out for publication In papers of Saturday, February 20. Practically all of the leading two-year-olds of last year are said to have been named. Mrs. Payne Whitneys Greentree Stable, Which captured the fifty-seventh running of the Derby with Twenty Grand, has named five for the contest of May 7. Her color-tiearers will come from Byzantine, Curacao, Jib Boom, Pro Bono and Semaphore. Byzantine is the good colt purchased from the estate of the late Samuel Ross. He is by Brown Prince U. and from the Sar-danapale mare Theodora. Curacao, by Dominant Maracaibo, was winner of the Grab Bag Handicap at Saratoga last year, finished second in the Colorado Stakes at Jamaica, and third in the Youthful Stakes at Jamaica and the Saratoga Special. Among the local entries to the Derby is that of William F. Knebelkamp, owner of the Louisville baseball club. Mr. Knebelkamp named his good gelding, Delivered, which is one of the tallest horses at the Churchill Downs track. Delivered has grown mightily during the winter and he looks all over a tough hcrse. Delivered won the Queen City Handicap at Latonia last fall, coming from behind with a burst of speed that indicated he will be a hard horse to beat over a route of ground. An erratic disposition was the chief handicap under which Delivered labored last year, but his owner asserts that he has quieted down and is one of the best mannered horses in his stable. The track at Churchill Downs has been kept in shape for galloping during the mild winter and horses stabled here should easily be able to get down to real work when the time comes.
