j HANDICAP TO EARLY TIDE D0RANTE AND CZAR RUN DISAPPOINTINGLY IN CHURCHILL DOWNS FEATURE. Good Crowd in Attendance Despite Threatening; Weather — Edward Corngan Stands Boost After Tom Dolan Wins. Iyouisville-. Ky.. May 11. — Todays attendance at Churchill Downs was surprisingly large, considering the threatening weather and the mediocrity of tho card, featured only by a handicap at a mile and twenty yards. Interest in the sport was healthy and speculation was keen. No sensational-priced winner scored during the afternoon, the majority of the races going to well-backed contenders. Louis Katz might have paid a big return but for the fact that he was put in the- field and grouped with se-veral other starters. Early Tide captured the handicap iu impressive- fashion after leading for the entire trip. Royal Report getting up to beat Dr. Holzberg for the place. Durante, a crack of former days that was making his initial appearance in these parte, was installed favorite in this race. He flattered his backers by running in a forward i«ositlou 1st half a mile, but thereafter he ceased to be a factor and finished in the ruck. Kerchev.ils showing in the race indicates an early return to his good form. The erratic Tom McGrath ruled favorite in the opening race, but finished an inglorious last. Marbles taking the purse- in a sharp drive with Camel. Woodford and Fixers Eye White, making his first apiH-arance of this season here, won from a good band of sprinters in the third. A heavy mist blanketed the course during the running of this race and the- colors could not be distinguished with accuracy. The heavily -bae-ked Anavri bolted when the starter released the barrier and was left. After Edward Corrigans Tom Dolan won. the closing race- some stranger bid up the horse 00 over his entered pries of $:!00. Mr. lV rrigan advanced the bid and retained the horse-. The same man who bid on Tom Dolan created some- amusement for owners and si evtators after the finish of the second race when he informed Judge Prie-e- that he would take- LaSBB Katz for his entered pries of $."00. When informed that he could not obtain the horse without an advanced bid he tried to raise- the price . but the judge promptly refused it. C. L. Harrison stated today that his colt Waldo is getting along finely, and that the part of the foot that was e-ut away is already showing growth. W. tl. Parmer returned tonight to his home in Nashville and will leave for Detroit on Saturday next. He has sixteen yearlings, mostly by The oiiimonor. stanch he will sell on aswsnsnf day at She-epshead • Bay. Catesby Woodfords twenty-four hand will as sold at the same time. Mr. Panne-r gave it as his opinion that the Canadian racing this vear would lie of lictte-r class than ever. All the horses that ran in Ihe Kentucky Derby came out of the race in excellent condition. Clint De-Witt has asked for twelve stalls for the horses he will ship here-. Captain Kennedy will be sold at auction in the paddoe-k on Saturday next.
