LOUISVILLE. Ky.. May 1.— None of the S Derby eligibles at Churchill showed anything out of the ordinary this morning, although the course was lightning fast. Prince galloped three-eighths in 37 as an opener a fast trial tomorrow. Prince Tii Tiis gallop was only fairly good. He worked with Bon Homme, going the first quarter in 25. half in 51*4. three-quarters in 1 :19%, mile in 1 :45%. Bon B Homme was driving at the end, while Prince * Tii was just cantering. O Sun Fey and Sun Thistle, the W. S. Kil- |i mer Oaks candidates, were timed a mile, tl the first quarter in 24%, half in 50%, three- c quarters in 1 :16% and mile in 1 :46. Both ■ fillies were never extended and pulled up fresh and sound. Alice Blue Gown and Miss Muffins worked ■ three-quarters together, the first quarter in h 24%. half in 50% and three-quarters in 1 :1S%. l Alice Blue Gown finished hard held and s could have gone several seconds faster.

Startle showed her speed when her trainer- c owner, Joe Hawkins, set last years Ken- r tucky Oaks winner down for her first real t work of the spring season. She showed rare Y speed the first part of it. but was a tired t illy at the finish. The timers caught her c the first quarter in 23. half in 47%. three-quarters in 1:14%, mile in 1:43%. Startle looks a little high, but work watchers pre- j diet a great year for her. j Marjorie Hynes is another mare which seems to be in great condition. She was , not asked to go fast, but she went a half , in 49%. three-quarters in 1:16, mile in 1:44. j Great things are also predicted for her. Whiskaway and Tom Hare Jr. worked to- , gether. The 25,000 horse showed the best ] gallop for this season. The two were close j together throughout the mile and an eighth.
