MAGNET FOR EASTERN STARS Kentucky and Clark Handicaps to Attract Cream of Older Division Cudgel Johren Exterminator to Make Another Western Cam ¬ paign in the Spring LOUISVILLE Ky March 16 Churchill Downs will make a heavier draft on the east for handl ¬ esip horses of the best class this year than any Kentucky race track lias made in the past The 14000 the New Louisville Jockey Club will add to the Kentucky and Clark Handicaps 10000 in one case 4000 in the other makes it worth the while of the eastern sportsman to send their best longdistance runners of mature years this year as the adding of L 0000 to the Kentucky Derby the countrys most popular spring special for three yearold makes the sending f the great three yearolds west the proper thing The running dates of the Clark and Kentucky Handicaps will not prevent the handicap horses that come early to hand from taking part in the great spring meeting of the Maryland Jockey Hub the principal feature of which so far as the older horses are concerned will he the renewal of the 5000 Pimlieo Spring Handicap The Clark Handicap a gallop of one mile and a sixteenth will be run on May 17 the last day of the Iimlico meeting The Kentucky will lie run May 24 Last year Cudgel came this way to win the Kentucky Handicap which was run at Douglas Park from Pif Jr Arriet and Hollister after winning the Pimlieo Spring Handicap from Bondage and Omar Khayyam and a race or so at Jamaica to boot Last year the Pimlieo Spring Handicap was run on May 8 8Information Information from Commander Ross training ilimrtersJn Jifitryiand is to

Pimlieo Spring Handicap sind then start immediately for Kentucky to appear in botli the Clark and the Kentucky And when he arrives here lie will join Hilly Kelly and War Pennant which will if the plans of H G Bed well do not miscarry be ready to meet Eternal The Wanderer Colonel Livingston and others in the Kentucky Derby which will be run on May 10 The threeyearolds of the stable of Commander J K L Ross of Montreal that are to take part in the Derby will make the journey from Laurel Park before Cudgel starts west Because of its unusual numerical strength the stable of Com ¬ mander Ross will be divided into two divisions this year and it is likely that Frank Stephens will have charge of the eastern contingent while Bedwell is in these parts with the stars of the outfit outfitMost Most of the eastern candidates for the Kentucky Handicap will be campaigned as Bedwell has planned to campaign Cudgel They will race at Piralico eight or ten days and then go across the Alleghenies There will be no such difficulty in obtaining transportation as was experienced last year yearJOHREN JOHREN TOR KENTUCKY HANDICAP HANDICAPJohren Johren winner of last years Latonia Derby also the

candidates of the II P Whitney stable for the Derby These horses also will race at Havre de Grace and Pimlieo before tliev start west and Johren probably will he a starter in the Pimlieo Handicap The Kentucky is the early spring race for which Johren is es ¬ pecially prepared A slow horse at the beginning of a race this big son of Spearmint and Mimola is not specially dependable in dashes of one mile and u sixteenth Johren Was lame after his vic ¬ tories in the Saratoga Cup and the Lawrence Realization last full but he is training soundly now Albert Simons will train and manage him in Maryland Star Hawk son of Sunstar Sweetfinch joint hero with George Smith of the Kentucky Derby of 1910 seems to be the most formidable of the candidates of the stable of A K Macomber for the Kentucky Handicap Star Hawk is training famously at Belmont Park after u couple of years stud service It is probable that Star Master an Americanbred sou of Star Shoot which developed unsuspected aptitude for long distance running last fall will siccomnany Star Hawk west War Cloud which does not seem partial to longdistance run ¬ ning will it is understood be held in the east for the Metropolitan Handicap

Girl which defeated Omar Khayyam Cudgel Midway and Slippery Kim in the Baltimore Handicap at Laurel Park last October The Porter which has developed into a singularly handsome fouryearold is pretty apt to be a starter in the Clark Handicap also Speed is his forte The appearance in Kentucky next spring of Sunny Slope the winner at Belmont Park last fall of the Jerome Belmont Autumn and Municipal Handicaps depends on the way he trains The big son of Astronomer is now sit Laurel Park in the liargc of C P Winfrey Winfrey having taken him over from Richard F Carman a fortnight since Sunny Slope

137 at Saratoga last summer summerOmar Omar Khayyam bids fair to race this year to his 1917 form He hail bad foot pretty much all last year He has grown put an entirely new one over winter and is galloping soundly Westy Hogan the thow horse of the N w York tracks was never better than he is now Kentuckians are especially anxious to toe him again It was in the Blue Grass State that this brilliant son of Dick Finnell which can heat the fastest sprinters at three quarters of a mile and maintain his speed one mile and a half and farther perhaps with the stoutest hearted longdistance runners made his reputation threeyearoldThe as a two and threeyearold The representative of the stable of Willis Sharpe Kilmer of Binghamton N Y in the Ken ¬ tucky Handicap will be Exterminator winner
