Candidates for Oaks Work Out at Churchill Come and Go, Wallflower Show Readiness for Fridays Stake LOUISVILLE, Ky., June 5.— Several candidates for Fridays seventy-first edition of the Kentucky Oaks, which is the local "Derby for fillies," enlivened training hours this morning with preps for that mile and a sixteenth. The longest of these spins was turned in by Thomas Piatts homebred Come and Go, who won Keenelands Ashland and is regarded as a foremost aspirant for Oaks honors. Trainer Price Sal-lee brought the racy chestnut onto the course early and she traversed a mile in :49, 1:14 and 1:41%, breezing all the way. Another Oaks eligible to work was Wal-macs Wallflower. Trainer Wells sent her seven furlongs in company of the four-year-old colt Old Kentuck, the two moving over the distance in :49, 1:15 5 and 1:29. This work was encompassed "handily." Misweets connections indicated their intention of sending the Bel Aethel filly after the Derby instead of the Oaks when they worked her a mile and a furlong in 1:53%, handily. Her fractions were :49. 1:14%, and the mile in 1:40%. It would have been a standout Oaks move. Col. E. R. Bradleys homebred Be Faithful, an eligible for the Pimlico Oaks, also worked today. The leggy Bimelech filly, a winner at the meeting, breezed a mile in :51, 1:16% and 1:42%.
