WOOD MEMORIAL TRAINING! Lee Rosenbergs Kerry Patch, winner of the rich Belmont Futurity, moved up a notch in consideration for the Wood Memorial on Saturday by working a satisfactory three-quarters of a mile in 1:15% at Belmont Park, Wednesday. Dark Winter, from the Willis Sharpe Kilmer barn, was sent a mile by trainer Creech. He was caught in the following fractions: :50%, 1:17 and 1:44. He accomplished his work without displaying the slightest sign of distress. Barring accident, he will be a starter. Utopian, which ran a fine race in the Preakness, accompanied by De Valera which acted as pacemaker for part of the distance in the Pimlico classic, arrived at Aqueduct. Trainer "Sunny Jim" Fitzsimmons sent his pair for a slow gallop over the Aqueduct strip to limber them up after the long train ride from Baltimore. They will work over the longer route, Thursday. The splendid race by the Belair Studs Dominus at Jamaica on Tuesday has confirmed the earlier expectations of "Sunny Jim." He always considered this colt of championship timber. Judging from the way he won at Jamaica, he may prove a dangerous rival to Head Play in the Wood Memorial Saturday. M. L. Schwartz Clarify worked a half in :48 over the Belmont Park strip. He will be sent for a longer trial tomorrow.
