horses in train ¬ ing King the property of Gus Strauss arrived from Lexington Ky yesterday morning They were unloaded at the Stock Yards where the year ¬ lings will be ready for inspection today and Sunday and will be sold Monday and Tuesday nights The Strauss horses were walked over fo Washington Park A conspicuous figure among the trio was the 2yearold Greatland Greenland the early spring star of his age in Kentucky He is a hqavily heavily muscled yet symmetrical colt j and looks in racing order His companions were Claret Cup and Miss1 Chance Owen Bradley Had charge of the three Bradley said of Greatland Greenland He was taken sick at Louis ¬ ville vile and started when he should have been in the stable He has had a letup since that Meeting but has been galloped every day and I believe him to be as good as ever Anyhow I have entered him to run tomorrow and will not worry about what he has to meet meetW meet W H Laudeman Laundryman is back from New York He saw the Suburban and did not back the winner In his opinion the race was a good one although it would probably have been better but for the delay at the post Bob Rose he says backed Tillo Till and got 15 and 20 to 1 against his money Lieber Libber Karls Karl injury has been pronounced a spread foot It will keep him out of training for a month or six weeks after which he will probably be as good as ever He is still suffer ¬ ing King severe pain The heel of the injured foot rarely rests on the floor of his stall Usually the toe of the injured member is held tremul tremulous ¬ ously lousily against the straw beneath Whenever he takes a step it is with a very pronounced limp Borgiaas Orgasm out of the Derby His leg has filled above the pastern A veterinarian says the colts tendons are all right and there is no sign of lameness but Mr Boots is not satisfied thati thai it is not a case of breakdown There is the swelling and a cause and I would like to know what it is said he With respect to the chances of Borgia Borg if well Mr Boots said I still think the race would have been between Liebor Libra Karl and my horse Lieber Libber Karls Karl work was excellent and it was really too bad he went lame There was no doubt about my horse going the route and the way he worked that mile in 142 Monday gave me a lot of con ¬ fidence faience Now I dont don't expect to win anything What I came for is gone Lieber Libber Karls Karl injury is similar to that sustained by The Roman last winter It was five weeks after he became lame before The Roman could be galloped Once or twice since he has pulled up a trifle lame but has walked out of it I have to use bar plates on him now Ace was injured in like manner i and they use bar plates on him A lot of horses racing in California last winter had similar trouble and almost all of them are now wearing bar plates i iThree Three Three of the American Derby candidates were given comparatively strong work yesterday Bannockburn Bannock was first given a moderate gallop of two miles Then he was sent a mile in 1 44t He was rated along the first threequarters treasurers in 1 20 and sent along the last quarter in 241 Speaking to Willie Martin about the colt Sergeant McGuigan Michigan said He can run when he is right and I believe Ill have him fit tomorrow I took a chance with him at St Louis and found out he was not ready Now I think he is ready I sent him a mile and a half in 2391 and he had nine ounces on each foot I lot him step along the first part of it and he was pretty tired the last part just as I intended ho should be I like that Work as well as anything any of the others have done Since then I have gal ¬ loped him enough to keep him in shape for tomorrow But the trouble with him is that just when I get him fit he gets sick Martin replied I know hes hems fast of course he is Then he pointed at a water tank being drawn around the upper turn and approaching the home stretch and said Say Bill you see where that tank is Well tomorrow when I get there if the trunk isnt isn't too heavy Ill say ta ta Youll You'll find that trunk too heavy before you get there replied McGuigan Michigan McGuiganMidian Midian Indian did the Derby course with H Martin in the saddle He worked nicely in 240 He will go pretty well tomorrow was a remark with which observers of the work generally agreed agreedPink agreed Pink Coat worked a mile and a quarter at Hawthorne Thursday in 211 He did it in a steady easy manner Having run a mile and a half last Saturday at St Louis Pat Dunne evi Levi ¬ dently dentally thought a mile and a quarter sufficient preparation for todays today event eventIt event It was 3 oclock o'clock in the afternoon when Isabey Isabel was given his final preparation It was a mile from the seven furlongs post back He did the first half in 52i and the last half in 51 slowed up at the finish He was whizzing as he began rounding into the home stretch and Bob Tucker signalled signaled the boy to check him Thats Hats a fast track Agoodhorse Gophers could run a fast mile over it said Tucker as the horse was cooling Then he added This fellow is seasoned and fit and there can be no excuse for him If it will rain it will suit him exactly It might bo hard on the Club but satisfactory to me meTHOS eTHOS THOS ETHOS J GALLAGHER
