■ | CHURCHILL DOWNS NOTES ] After a short respite from training Red Whisk, C. C. Van Meters three-year-old, breezed an easy five-eighths in 1:04 on a fast track here this morning. While Red Whisk failed to get into the Kentucky Derby, Van Meter looks for him to prove a consistent winner. Condition books for the first ten days of the Bainbridge Park spring meeting, opening May 20, are being distributed here. The meeting is scheduled to run for twenty-five or more days. Many of the larger stables will be represented in the ,000 added Bashford Manor Stakes to be run here Saturday. This fixture, for two-year-olds, will draw starters from among 165 eligibles. It was won last year by Charles T. Fishers In High, a victory that netted ,710. This year Mr. Fisher, I who uses the nom de course of Dixiana, will j I be represented by Full Tilt and Constant I I | Wife. Unfortunately, Mata Hari, the sta-bles I brilliant filly, is not eligible. ! The Audley Farms Miss Patience, leading ; I juvenile of the New Orleans season, is an- | other probable Bashford starter and the E. j R. Bradley, Calumet Farm, R. W. Collins, H. | P. Headley, Sam Furst, J. W. Parrish, Jack I j Howard, William F. Smith, Shandon Farm, | Southland Stable, Three Ds Stock Farm I I and others, are expected to have representa- j ; tion. The distance is five-eighths and the i conditions require winners of a sweepstakes | to carry three pounds and winners of two sweepstakes five pounds above the scale, while maidens are allowed five pounds. A sale of horses in training will be held in the Churchill Downs paddock next Tuesday. A dozen or more will be offered and the sale will be conducted by McFerran Brothers. Track conditions were responsible for the late withdrawal of Tela from the fifth race Tuesday. She was excused by the stewards. The Churchill management has received from Derby Day visitors, many letters and messages filled with praise and congratulations for the smooth and efficient manner in | which the large Derby crowd was handled I I and the race presented. These have been re- j I ceived from many parts of the country and j j clearly show that the average person is inclined I to be fair and appreciates that it is almost humanly impossible to stage such a mammoth event as the Derby without a few minute imperfections. . «
