WALDENS TWO KENTUCKY DERBY HOPES Banquet and Uncle Bryan May Represent Maryland in Next Saturdays Race Louisville Ky May 2 The racing string of It J Walden in which are the two candidates for the Kentucky Derliy Banquet and Uncle Bryan has a number of the most promising twoyearolds most of which will race during the coming meeting at Churchill Downs It Is probable that the stable will send both their Derby candidates to the post mt the sure Derby starter in the string Is Uncle liryau which lias done unusually well in his spring training The now snpiwsed certain starters in the Derby in addition to Uncle Bryan are Pebbles if Jr Chalmers Trojan Royal II Norse King Manager Waite For Fair Sharpshooter Goldcrest I5oy and Regret There are several other eligibles that may also start and at the present writing it seems that with dry track conditions the largest field that has gone to the post in this event in recent SaturdayThe years will face the barrier next Saturday The Walden string has twoyearolds that are unusually promising in the bay colt Hedonist oy Bryn Mawr Night Gown and the brown colt Sugar King by King James Bellainia These two youngsters are said to have been highly tried as yearlings and arc owned by A II Morris The liorses that will race this season in tliis turfmans colors are the first he has sent to the i ost in Ken ¬ tucky since the Morris family won the Kentucky Derby here with Manuel in 1S9 Of the two Derby entries in this stable Banquet also belongs to this turfman turfmanAbout About the best twoyearold work done at the Downs in the last few days was scored by the Missouri brecU colt Heir Apparent owned by A L Rogers and trained in the stable of Elsie Brown along with Little Nephew and Little String This son of Blues which won his only race at Juarez last winter worked a handy four and a half fur ¬ longs lu 5GJS and horsemen Tegard him as one of the most dangerous candidates for the Bashford Manor Stakes which will be run at the Downs this season on Wednesday May 12 12In In some quarters it Is cow considered likely that J W Schorrs good threeyearold Ed Crump may start in the Kentucky Derby though his owner still declares that he will begin the season with this son of Peep o Day like be did with David Craig last season by running him in short races early in May At that he has lately worked a mile in 141 in which he ran the first threequar ¬ ters in 114 He was paced in that trial by George Roesclt another Derby eligible in this stable that was not sent to Lexington to race In running Ed Crump played with George Roesch after going a quarter of a mile It is thought tlrat trainer J F Schorr intends to send Ed Crump a good mile and a quarter the coining weekt and if he works to the satisfaction of his owner and trainer he may wear the Schorr colors in spite of all reports to the contrary in the Kentucky Derby DerbyThe The bay imported colt Polroma in J Living ¬ stons stable at Churchill Downs and au eligibe to the Bashford Manor Stakes to be run there on Wednesday May 12 is a son of the English horse Polymelus the sire of Pommcrn which won thic Two Thousand Guineas at Nowmarket on Wednesday last Polymelus headed the English list of winning sires last season one of his great win ¬ ning sons being Black Jester winner of the St Leger Polymelus is a sou of the horse Cyllene which is the sire of Half Crown the dam cf James Butlers Kentucky Derby candidate Last Coin Half Crown is the only mare by Cyllene ever imported into this country for breeding pur ¬ poses and is also the dam of the good eastern racer Andrew Polroma is a lusty looking twoyear old and appears to be a colt that will make good on the turf Being by such a great sire from now oil his work will be keenly watched by the rail birds at the Downs as so far lie gives every indication of not disgracing his relatives Black Jester and Pommern PommernTrainer Trainer A J Goldsborough tells an interesting story of bis first impression of Rpamcr when that now celebrated racer made his appearance in the east as a twoyearold Goldsborotigh says he was poor and scrawny no man could pick him out for anything more than a most ordinary youngster However he attracted some attention when he ran away from a baud of selling platers a few days Liter but says be While I then guessed that Ire was better than tin ordinary plater I nor no one else imagined we had just seen the future king of the American turf lie was entered in that race to be sold for a thousand dollars and after his easy win Albert Simon boosted him a thousand over his entrance price Mr Miller protected the colt for Mr Clay and later on said to me They want to sell Roamer for 3500 look him over and see what you think of him I saw that the gelding was run down In flesh and I was not dis ¬ posed at first to advise Mr Miller to buy him I later on saw him even in the condition he was work a handy fiveeighths in 101 and so I told him I believed he was not a bad investment Mr Miller told Mr Clay what I had to say about him and says If you are still determined to tell 1 will take him Mr Clay told him that was all he thought he was worth and that is how Andrew Miller came to own the great horse I rested him up for quite a period and look him to Saratoga where I won the Saratoga Special worth t HJO He thus that early paid back his purchase price ITe has never since acted badly for me in but one race that being the Withers Stakes at Belmont Park the race in which Old Rosebud broke down I have never been able to account for his performance that day I never saw 1 race in which there was quite as much disappointment Knowing that Old Rosebud was dicky on his leg I told our jockey to go right after him with Roamer and by setting a hot pace make him crack under his disability The race was started and Roamer had no mishap from the start and an instant later to my amazement 1 saw that Gainer and Old Rosebud had carried each other clear to the outside fence and were bumping and knocking one another all over the track I supiKjsed then Roamer being in a good position would come through and win the race but when his rider called on him he apparently could not run a yard and that explains how Charlestonian was able to win that event That was the only threeyearold race Roamer was defeated in last season He has wintered for me In the greatest shape possible and I expect all of him as a four yearold as he showed in his threeyearold form He has all his dazzling speed and I have never yet found any distance too far for him when he Is on edge Mr Miller surely is to be congratulated on picking up such a great horse from a rather ordinary prospect Such occurrences come rarely even to turfmen who have the means to buy any horse they want wantIn In selecting a name for the twoyearold filly by Peter Quince Tunisia owned by the Louisville turfmen Middleton Jones the name Always aLady was sent into the Jockey Club The reg ¬ istrar instead of accepting the first selection registered tlc filly as Lady Always and she will of course race under the latter name She Is being traiiied in tlm stable of Dan Lehan and is eligible in tlte Debutante Stakes to be run at the Downs on Monday May 10 So far she has shown well in her training and her stable are sweet on her chances of early graduating from the maiden class
