KENTUCKY MORSES AT WORK. Favorable Conditions Enable Trainers to Go Along With Their Charges at Lexington Course, Lexington, Ky., March 25. The horses in training at the Kentucky Association track did not miss a gallop any day this week and progress on the whole was highly satisfactory. The average clip was quarters in 20, three-eighths in 37 and halves in 53. A few, of course, wont a little faster. The four-year-old, Boola Boola, in the string of Johnson N. Camden, worked faster and further than any horse at the course. Trainer Keene sent him out for a half Tuesday morning in 50$ and Thursday morning he worked seven-eighths In 1:33. This son of Ben Brush and The Mecca has three engagements for the spring meeting here and will be ready. He is in the Phoenix Hotel Handicap, at one mile and a sixteenth, to be run the opening day, April 29; the Camden Handicap, at one mile and a quarter, to be run May 0, and the Brewers Selling Stakes, at one mile, to be run May 11. The fastest three-eighths of the week was shown by the two-year-old Praetorian, by Star Shoot Marlbel. He is the Camden candidate for the Breeders Futurity, at half a mile, to be run May 9. This well-made youngster worked in 361. The Camden string is the largest at the course, and the two-year-old members are collectively the most promising in training here. Unless they meet with much bad luck they will figure conspicuously in the list of winners at the wiudup of the Kentucky season. The Kentucky Derby candidates, St. Aloysius, in Jack Bakers string, and Labold, In J. C. Milams barn, are in good condition, but nothing in the way of speed has been asked of either of them. Waldo, Joe Morris and Jeff Bernstein are out every day and look good. Courtney Matthews, a colored trainer, brought T. C. .McDowells Voter Bracegirdle colt, probably the best two-year-old in this section, to the track from Ashland Farm Thursday morning and worked him a quarter in 251. He has an admirable way of going and his work Is apparently without effort. Will McDanicl has some good two-year-old prospects in his string and one or the best Is W. II. liudenians Piping, a daughter of Peep oDay and Barbara Whiting. She is a candidate for the Elinen-dorf Stakes, at four and a half furlongs, to be-run May 4. She has done three-eighths in 37 easily. Among the two-year-olds in the stable of Robert C. Frakes there is a bay colt by Jean Bereaud Adept that has been named for the widely known Louisville newspaper man and politician, John D. Wakefield. He looks to have a future as a race horse. . , . Countless, Althorpc, Rash, Piping Rock, Light O M Life, Slim Princess, Miss Wiggs, Miss Mooney and Mary Emily, comprising the string J. AV. May brought up this week from Jacksonville, are to have a bit of a letup. Traiper May left here for West Baden Springs yesterday to spend a week and his horses will have only mild exercise during his absence. The loss of the good two-year-old R. G. Miller this week was quite as much of a blow to trainer Charles T. Patterson as it was to owner J. Hart Brown. This colt had shown more than any youngster here, with the possible exception of T. C. McDowells Voter Bracegirdle colt, and there was a great difference of opinion among the trainers as to which was the better. -Mr. Patterson had satisfied himself that ho was a race horse or the first water and through him had expected to reap pleasure and profit similar to that which came to him from the training and racing of Ornament. Patterson sat up with the colt three days and nights after his collision with Mr. Ham on Monday in the forlorn hope that he might save him. This Is the second of four foals from Subdue to die. Her first was the good horse G. M. Miller, by Lissak. for which William Walker paid Mr. Brown ,000. Her second was Dr. Miller, by Sidney Lucas, and he died at Louisville last spring. Her third was this colt. R. G. Miller, by St. Lawrence IL, and her fourth is a suckling by Lissak, therefore a sister to G. M. Miller. Subdue was not bred in 1909 and accordingly there is no yearling from her. William H. Steele, who is training a public stable, has three three-year-olds and five two-year-olds in his string. The three-year-olds are Mary Day. a winner, and Patsy Carol and Titter, maidens. The first named two belong to Spencer and Hughes, of Danville, and Titter is owned by C. W. Reidtnger of this city. The two-year-olds are Sun Ivlst, chestnut colt, by Gold Heels Kuhla, candidate for the Raceland Stakes and the Breeders Futurity; Limousine, bay filly, by Lissak Looking Glass dam of Wm. H. Ryon. eligible to the Breeders Futurity: Roberta S., bay filly, bv Dublin Start, a Breeders Futurity candidate: Goldade, chestnut filly, by Gold Heels Charada, eligible to the Elmendorf Stakes, and an unnamed chestnut filly half-sister to Flip Flap, Kite Star, Mabel Winn and Liddington and sister to Alwin and Alforten by Handsel Alvar-etta. This filly belongs to J. F. Winn of Winchester, who is likewise her breeder. Sun Kist is the property of Speed F. Owen of Frankford; Roberta S. isowned by Sanford C. Lyne of this city, and the other two belong to S. and J. L. Holton of Forks of Elkhorn. The unnamed filly is speedy, but Limousine Is probably the pick of the party. Recent highly bred and exquisitely formed foals at John E. Maddens Hamburg Place are: Brown filly sister to Sir Martin, by Ogden Lady Sterling, by Hanover; chestnut colt half-brother to Trigger, Gunfire, Gunrod, Raglan, not Shot and brother to Yankee Gun, by Yankee Royal Gun, by Royal Hampton; bay colt half-brother to Ivabel, bv Yankee Ivory Bells, by Himyar, an a bay colt by Yankee Veil sister to Maskette, by Disguise. E. Browns Amoron, winner of the first race at Tampa last Saturday, died last night in a freight car en route from Tampa to Lexington. James R. Keenes Noonday, dam of Suffragette and Besom, has a bay colt by Ben Brush at Castle- t0Maj.UT. J. Carsons Strychinia, dam of Highball, winner of the American Derby at Washington Park, has a bay colt by Scintillaut II. at Dixiana Stud.
