Preakness Week enthusiasm is soaring to that intensity which seizes Marylands thoroughbred lov ¬ ers each spring during this festive occasion and scores of railbirds were present at the Belvedere Avenue track this morning for a glimpse of Count Fleet Blue Swords and company While this element of rara avis hovered interested about Barn F which is the glamorous pairs royal suite on the back

ning La Reigh will be the public preference in what looms as rather an open betting race raceProbably Probably Royal Flush will be the medium of fairly heavy play herself for she de ¬ feated Too Timely and La Reigh in front running fashion in a recent local prep race However La Reigh was probably in need of that tightener in the opinion of many pyewitnesses who expect she will be much more difficult to turn back in the Oaks as a result resultIf If all start the winner will receive 10475 o say nothing of attaining temporarily at east the distinction of being the leader of her age and sex division divisionNeither Neither Count Fleet nor his persistent shadow appeared on the racing strip this morning confining their activities to rid ¬ ding themselves of their car legs by walk ¬ ing about the shed shedNo No really rigorous training schedule is proposed for either of this pair in advance of Saturdays 50000 classic Count Fleet will breeze a slow five furlongs tomorrow morning if trainer Don Cameron adheres to his present plan opening up Friday for the weekends run for the Blackeyed Susans SusansI I do not think he will need anything more after last Saturdays mile and one quarter and that trip over here the Cali ¬ fornia observed observedWalter Walter Kelley the Celtic whose witti ¬ cisms so delight back stretch habitues re ¬ marked Blue Swords will get his work Thursday morning This indicates that his move will not be anything strenuous strenuousCount Count Fleet is simply too much horse for me he continued adding but we are going to try him again Saturday I did not think he beat us as easily in the Derby as he did in the Wood really reallyCameron Cameron incidentally is the number one sulfathyozole booster believing that the marvelous curative influence of this prep ¬ aration enabled him to continue the sen ¬ sational Counts conditioning for the Derby after his Wood Memorial mishap His famed charge ran in the Kentucky classic without a bandage on his damaged coro ¬ net fbut with a protective layer of grease on the wound to absorb the track dirt and minimize the chance of infection infectionAfter After the Battle of Roses the laceration was cleansed and dressed with more sulfa This morning it was a far less conspicuous wound than the raw mangled coronet it looked when the Count arrived at Louis ¬ ville villeBossuet Bossuet Wont Start StartBlue Blue Swords did not come out of the Derby completely unscathed having some ¬ how collected a scratch on one pastern which happily amounts to nothing While the Count was bumped again leaving the gate he came back with a little hair off one shin precariously near a pastern pasternIf If only he would not habitually throw his head into the air at the break Count Fleet probably would leave even faster and escape some of this banging about jockey Longden remarked remarkedIndications Indications today were that no more than four will appear for the Preakness The virtually certain starters of course are Mrs HertzJ spectacular homebred Blue Swords and W L Branns Marylandbred Vincentive who won a sprint in gig time here Monday by way of qualifying In addi ¬ tion another entrant is expected to come from the Survivor field Fitzsimmons has informed officials that Bossuet will not be sent here for the race raceIt It is not expected that Count Fleet will be more than 1 to 5 to win the Preakness or second phase of Americas Triple Crown CrownIt It is much too early in the season for the 11 in the Pimlico Oaks to have achieved anything startling Askmenow and Good Morning have had prep races and both opened up this morning with fcireeeighths moves shading 37 in handy style styleLast Last autumn Good Morning won the Ma ¬ tron at Askmenows direct expense en route setting a new sixfurlong chute mark at Belmont Later at Laurel she essayed to give the Headley filly weight and the Beaumont representative reversed the de ¬ cision Askmenow then shipped home while Good Morning moved to Belmonts Victory meet where she scintillated by beating off La Reigh and Too Timely in the mile of the Florence Nightingale
