LATONIA DERBY THIS AFTERNOON ELEVEN FLEET AND STAYING THREEYEAROLDS NAMED NAMEDTO TO CONTEND FOR THE HONORS OF THE RICH RACE RACEINCLUDING INCLUDING THE KENTUCKY DERBY WINNER The thirtyeighth Latonia Derby will be run this afternoon Its victor will not reap such a great sum as fell to the winner of the Kentucky Derby Still its value is so great that it is an alluring temptation to any owner of a good and sound threeyearold The standard is different from that of the Kentucky Derby Annually there are in the big Louisville race candi ¬ dates vested with the fascination attaching to the unknown quantity This was exemplified last spring in the wild antepost backing of Bersagliere and others of that class which from Ihe beginning had not the ghost of a chance In contrast the Latonia Derby is usually con ¬ tested by tried and true warriors of the track with form proved in public and known to all who study the intricacies of the great sport That alone is quite an item Then the big race of today is at the searching distance of a mile and a half and in that respect it is a truer test of the stamina of its contestants than is the Kentucky Derby DerbyAs As is true of all stake races of long establishment the Latonia Derby has now and then dwindled away to a race between young horses of indifferent class but generally it has fallen prey to the speed and endurance of superb specimens of the young thoroughbred Such of its winners as Leonatus Bersan Silver Cloud Los Angeles Bill Letcher Kingman Halma Ben Brush Ornament Prince McClurg Lieutenant Gibson Sir Huon Olambala Governor Gray Free Lance Yowell John Gund Royal II Liberty Loan Johren and Be Frank were perfectly able to stand a critical comparison with the other star threeyearolds of any years of our turf history at large Indeed of these Leonatus Halma Ben Brusn Ornament Sir Huon Olam ¬ bala Governor Gray Free Lance Liberty Loan and Johren were wonderful race horses when at thejr best its two filly winners Los Angeles and Gowell were higlrclass young mares in their days of racing glory gloryUsually Usually this winnowing of the chaff from the sound grain of horsedom has led to small fields in the Latonia Derby but this year somewhat unexpectedly eleven have been named to go It does not follow that all will start but in any event it now appears that all the elements of a smashing good race are in sight for the delectation of all fortunate enough to vvifnesj if liastryear when Be Frankwon f ronr Ormond andKegalo vviththe favorite Eternal unplaced eight started over a heavy track This year that many or more will go and as the track will probably be at its best it will not be surprising if the present time record of the race is eclipsed This is 2 30 made by Governor Gray and John Gund in their respective years Some exceedingly good threeyearolds are to go today and if the race is to be run on the John Harper formula of extremest speed from eend to eend a great thing is possible in the way of time

and Rodriguez respective riders of Gladiator and Upset were arrivals during the afternoon At present Upset is enjoying favoritism but Make Up has come in for considerable attention during the past twentyfour hours and owner Respess makes no secret of his confidence today that the colt will be the victor Saturday At least eight starters are expected to strive for the rich prize Sterling and St
