Runs Mile and an Eighth in Time That Closely Approaches Governor Grays Track Record of 1:51 % — Days Results Formful. Lexington, Ky.. May 2. — Bronzewing. the fast and game Stalwart tilly belonging to Alex P. Humphrey. Jr.. of Louisville, today followed up her victory of last Monday in the Ashland Oaks by winning the Blue Grass Stakes, one mile and an eighth, in 1:51%. which is only throe-fifths of a second slower. than the track record, established by Governor Gray in the race for the same stake in 1911. Bronze-wing ruled a slight favorite over Old Ben. with Surprising also coming in for much attention. The tilly was away slowly and MeCabe showed poor judgment in rushing her into forward contention in the tirst quarter. She displaced the fast going John Gund before rounding into the stretch, but her early effort caused her to weaken near the end and* John Gund almost nipped her out. The latter appeared done for in the last furlong, but came again with a rush. Surprising tired badly after going three quarters and fell au easy victim to Old Bens rush for third place. Many persons, some of them good judges, expressed the opinion that Bronzewing. notwithstanding the penalty she incurred today, will be one of the contenders in the race for the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs and John Gund is also given an excellent chance. R. F. Carman said alter Surprising had worked out the mile and a quarter in 2:0X: "I have not given up my expectation of winning the Kentucky Derby. Surprising does not like the hill in this track. He simply will not climb it. but there is no hill in the Churchill Downs course.- Surprising will be shipped to Louisville tomorrow. The Derby talk shifter! somewhat, however, when Charles S. Wil-ous Ivan Gardner worked out a mile and a quarter in 2:00. after having finished a fast-coming second to Dr. Samuel, from W. J. Youngs barn, which won the handicap at one mile and a sixteenth in 1:45%, equaling the track record made by Joe Morris. Many of those who were of the opinion that the winner of the Palmetto Derby is nothing more than a selling plater have changed their minds about that soi8 of Ivan the Terrible and are giving him a better than outside chance for the tiig prize at I/ uisville next Saturday. The performance of Ivan Gardner stands out all the more when it is known that Old Rosebud this morning worked the mile and a quarter in 2:00/-,. going the tirst quarter in 22%, half in 40Vi. tive-eighths 111 58%. three-quarters in 1:12%, and the mile in 1:40. with his weight up. Those who pinned their faith to favorites fared well, for four choices succeeded during the afternoon. The only real betting upset came in the opener when B. F. Carmens Camitoon lasted to beat out another outsider. Grosvenor. in a rousing finish. John W. Schorr continued his two-year-old successes when Lindetithal stood a hard drive to overhaul the speedy Superhuman and win the second race bv a length. Martre. a supposed good thing, had a narrow escape from defeat and only landed the purse in the third race by a margin of inches. Brigutstone. au outsider, furnished stubborn contention to the winner for the entire trip. Gallaher Bros, had Rash keyed up to his top form and taking the last race was an easy matter for him. Joe Stein was expected to go well in it. but refused to extend himself. n General Manager John Hadimeister. of the Douglas Park aad Latonia tracks, and Charles F. Price, who will preside ever the racing at Churchill Downs. Douglas Park and Iitonia. were among the interested visitors this afternoon. Both will remain over to witness Mondays sport. Trainer Mose Coldhlatt will ship ten of the Jefferson Livingston racers to Douglas Park tomorrow. All the horses in the stable that have lieen ailing have recovered and it is likely that Kd Howard will be a starter in the Breeders Futurity, to be run Thursday. R. r. Carman. Jr.. who was suddenly stricken with pneumonia after his arrival here, is reported to be progressing well and the doctors do not entertain any fears for his recovery. Jockey Byrne, who was to have gone with the racers shipped east today by trainer W. H. Kar-rick. reconsidered and will remain in Kentucky until after the Churchill Downs meeting. He will ride •U Louisville for Jack Baker. Todays attendance was of record proportions. The ideal conditions, coupled with the good racing Offered, attracted many from adjacent point-. Speculation was the heaviest in the history of the mutttel system here. Constant, a maiden eligible to the Kentucky-I erby, was given an impressive mile and an eighth work-out this morning in 1:53. Gov. J. B. McCreary witnessed the Blue Gran Slakes from the judges stand as the guest of the stewards. tie expressed great delight over the thrilling contest and rousing finish.
