ENTRIES TO AMERICAS RICHEST RACE One Hundred and Fiftynine Remain Eligible to latonias Championship Stakes LOUISVILLE Ky July 19 Of the 471 thor ¬ oughbreds originally entered in the Latonia Cham ¬ pionship Stakes Americas richest race the first running of which will take place at the coming autumn meeting at the Latonia track 159 are elig ¬ ible for the 50000 event the final payment of 100 each having been made on tills number In ¬ cluded in the list are horses from all parts of the world and never before on an American race track did a stake event have such an international aspect aspectTo To a foreigner W S Heather of 15 Hillmorton Road Rugby England fell the honor of keeping the most eligibles in the race he having nine horses en ¬ tered all imported stock Whether he will send any of them after the coveted prize is not known at the present time but after spending as much money as he lias to keep them eligible it is more than likely that his colors will be seen in the big race He named four colts and five fillies as his representatives and all of them are bred in the purple Foreign born horses have always shown a liking for a long route of ground and the distance of the Championship Stakes one and threequarter miles should be just to their liking likingThe The Heather horses in the stake are The Turk bay colt by Fowlingpiece Aloquin Liberty Light bay colt by Llangwm Purple Light Sinn Feiner bay colt by Land League Mill Bay Blue Blazes bay colt by Fariman Violet Light Wheel of For ¬ tune bay filly by Heliotrope Huttons System Colored Bess bay filly by Heliotrope Black Bess Noble Duchess bay filly by Heliotrope Cross Duchess Heat less Day bay filly by Heliotrope DeudySeat and Helipden bay or brpwnJIlly by Helidtrbpe Minden MindenGeorge George J Long of Louisville owner of Bashford Manor Fiinn one of Americas most popular sports ¬ men is second on the list of eligibles he having six remaining in the big stake Lancelot Clermont Retta B Constantino Plzarro and Ulster Queen The chief dependence of the Long establishment in the rich affair will naturally be Clermont and while he went wrong at Latonia during the recent spring meeting trainer Pete Coyne expects to have him back in his best form long before time for the running of the big race raceSARATOGA SARATOGA THE TESTING GROUND GROUNDTurf Turf patrons in this section are eagerly awaiting the opening of the Saratoga meeting as many of the crack threeyearolds which will later contest in the Latonia Championship Stakes will be seen in action often there and they will be able to get a line on their ability It is the season of the year now where horses should be at the top of their form and as the year grows older they natur ¬ ally get better Conditioning si thoroughbred for such a grueling race as the Championship Stakes promises to be and over such a route of ground would be an unusually hard task earlier in the year but when trainers have the entire summer to work with their charges it is not such a job jobM M J Winn vicepresident and general manager of the Kentucky Jockey Club is now in the east conferring with the owners and trainers of the high class horses which are eligible for the big stake and he will bend every effort to get as many of them to come to Latonia as possible The easterners have always had a lot of confidence in manager Winn as is shown by the way that they respond with en ¬ tries to the Kentucky Derby and they can be de ¬ pended upon to come in numbers after the richest threeyearold stake in the world It will not take much persuasion to get a man to ship his horse less than 1000 miles to run for a race of 50000 50000One One starter from the east can be depended upon if he does not go amiss and that is Eternal James W McClellands son of SweeprHazel Burke Owner McClelland never overlooks an opportunity to start his good horse in a rich stake regardless of how far he has to ship him as was evidenced when he sent him from New York to Latonia to run in the Derby Thus far in Kentucky McClelland has been unfortunate as in both the Kentucky and Latonia Derbys Eternal was forced to run over a muddy track and regardless of what any one else says ills owner contends that track conditions caused him to make a poor showing both times timesETERNAL ETERNAL MORE THAN A SPRINTER SPRINTEREternal Eternal has been accused of being a sprinter but lie disproved this when he won a stake recently at Aqueduct and ran one and oneeighth miles in 149 When at his best he will run as far as horses go and tie has shown in all of his late races that he is getting better as he goes along alongP P A Clark has a trio of eligibles in Dunboyne winner of the 1918 Futurity Polka Dot which Avon tiie Coaching Club Oaks at Bclmont Park last spring and Merry Princess a daughter of Spanish Prince Merriment Polka Dot is a sister to the former crack long route mare Embroidery being by Celt Network and she has demonstrated that a long distance of ground such as the Latonia Cham ¬ pionship Stakes will be pver will be in her favor Dunboyne went wrong the first part of this year and has not been racing lately but if there is any chance to bring him back to the races in time to fill his stake engagements at the Covington track lie will be gotten ready for the rich event eventUnlike Unlike in the Derby races there will be no al ¬ lowances other than the usual sex allowance of three pounds and this will eliminate all chances I Continued oft second pace ENTRIES TO AMERICAS RICHEST RACE i Continued frpm first page of a good maiden getting in lightly
