Work Over Track at Farm to Determine Battlefields Status JAMAICA, L. I., N. Y., May 9.— "No, I have not given up on him, and if he goes he will be said Bert Mulholland this morning in speaking of Battlefield, George D. Wideners candidate for the Preakness and Belmont. The colt is at his owners Erdenheim Farm, near Philadel-plia, and in recent days has improved in his manners. Battlefield is in charge of Jack Creevey, assistant to Mulholland. and will be worked over the private training track on the farm. Battlefield was shipped to the farm about 10 days ago and the change of scenery evidently did the two-year-old champion of last season a world of good. Mulholland was not positive on which day the colt will be breezed and, should the trial be satisfactory, he will be brought to Belmont Park for his final prep for the Maryland offering.
