NATIONAL DERBY PROMISE Out of its 1895 success St Louis made a keen bid for the first place in Western racing when it took the 1896 20000 National Derby and the Chi ¬ cago cargo Futurity 1896 with 10000 added off Har Hara ¬ lems lens hand The latter cuts no figure now but the former race is likely to be the Derby of the year should the three Californians Crescendo Santa Belle and Baldwins Baldwin Ramiro land safely and compete The National Derby will thus get Bon Brush and theCalifornians together for the first time and the meeting of the quartette and the selection of the early western season will attract national attention attentionThe attention The race is to be run Saturday June 20 20The The original conditions of the National Derby were rather tortuous Here they are The National Derby for 1896 A sweepstakes for threeyearolds foals of 1893 100 each half forfeit or only 25 if declared by January 1 1896 Money to accompany ajl al declarations or else they will be void The stake to be reopened October 15 1895 and entries to be received upon the payment of 250 in cash The mouey moue to ac ¬ company the entry otherwise it Will be void 300 additional to start The Assjociation Association to add a sufficient amount to make the value of the stake 15000 in cash to the winner The second horse to receive 25CO the third 1500 and the fourth 1000 Winners of one stake in 1896 of 5000 or three stakes of any value to carry five pounds penalty One Mile and a Half HalfThere Haltered There were no entries at the reopening The stake had been transferred in time but owners though notified were busy or scattered among various racing fields Then again St Louis is not Chicago and the latters clatters reign of terror was on onAs Jonas As it stands the National Derby

finance will be a good thing for the St Louis Associa Asocial ¬ tion ion The National Derby may got twelve start ¬ ers The early Western three year old events will help or obstruct St Louis LouisTho Loutish Tho Theo three year olds of 1896 should reflect the two year olds of 1895 In an Eastern entry way the class is not balanced at all Ben Brush is all there is to it certainly with Applegate Appellate and probably Hazlet Haslet out of the way Tho Theo West must be relied on to make a doubtful issue After the Oakley Ankle Derby one can better estimate the chances for a field at St Louis

of post appearance of tt o two Californians Crescendo and Santa Bella Ella add to the interest of the St Louis event Crescendo is certainly the best colt and Santa Bella Ella as much the best filly in California Both too are to be pointed for the race even though Ben Brush is to bo tackled as he surely is if he goes on well Such Derbies are to Mike Dwyers Dyers fancy and he has a great colt coltCrescendo concrescence Crescendo was not himself in the East last year After he landed at Hawthorne in the spring the colt camo cameo close to the door of death He didnt didn't beat Requital but he did beat every ¬ thing else in the Futurity and ran a great race with no sort of contending luck If he lands in St Louis fit and well Bon Brush Trill be forced to do what ho can do run fast and bravo down an opponent to boat him himSanta Hismanal Santa Bellas Bells a more elastic proposition Shes Ashes a good filly But fillies in the spring are less than reliable If she can do her best Mr Mac donoughs donuts St Serf Maiden Belle now dead filly will also be a factor in the race raceThe racketed The St Louis race is nearly an old fashioned Derby The three and five pound penalties only mark its modernity Such penalties are as they should bo too None of tile entries by the way have yet earned the penalties Crescendo is closest to them themAll thermally All in all the promise of the National is gorge ¬ ous onus A lover of racing for racings tracings contention can only hope that Ben Brush Crescendo Santa Bella Ella and that other Californian which I am told is the best that Santa Anita has Ramiro by Gano Guano land in Missouri fit and well and dc better than well in their final preparations Then we shall see a race that will by report oven stir the fanatics to admiration
