* CUBAN DERBY TODAY AT HAVANA FIELD OF NINE NAMED FOR fl5,000 ADDED CLOSING DAY FEATURE OF ORIENTAL PARK MEETING The Cuban Derby will be run at Oriental Park today. It is only right and proper that this, the most valuable of the stake races to be decided in Cuba during the last winter, should be reserved for the final days racing. Certain it is this contest should be a befitting finale and a glorious climax to the most successful meeting in the history of the Cuba American Jockey and Auto Club. In keeping with its growing importance and popularity the 1922 Cuban Derby has attracted the best field in its brief history. Herion was the first winner, triumphing over Blue VVrack and Mile. Dazie in 1920, while Billy Barton ran the best race of hi» three-year-old career when he carried off the rich prize last year. tor its third running a field of nine has been named. H. P. Whitney will be represented by Cherry Tree, a son of Broomstick- Cerise, which has been racing in excellent form all winter. Cherry Tree will be coupled with Tomahoi. owned by Mose Goldblatt, who trains for Mr. Whitney in Cuba. The entry will undoubtedly rule a strong favorite. Cherry Trees most formidable rival is Llewellyn, a son of Luke McLuke. in the stable of the Keene Bros., his owner and breeder. Llewellyn gained a host of admirers wh«*n he ran third to Dr. Ciark and Sea Prince in the recent running of the Grand Prize of Cuba Handicap, at one and an eighth miles. Andrew Blakely entertains high hopes of winning the big race with either Costigan or Olynthus, which he recently shipped from New Orleans to Cuba with this race in view. Costigan is the real hope of Blakely and is especially dangerous over a heavy track. Rebuke and Qwesada will carry Thomas Monahans colors, th. first mentioned being considered to have more than an outside chance of winning. Leghorn and Lady Astor are the only fillies among the probable starters and the latter is not without admirers. She has raced well and appears able to go a long distance. The prospects are for fine, summeriike weather, a fast track, a grand race and an immense crowd to witness its decision.
