ROLLED STOCKING AILING • J. W. Parrishs Derby Candidate Taken Down With Fever. » Cold Weather and Kain Responsible for Disagreeable Training Conditions at Kentucky Association Course. • LFXINGTOX. Ky.. April 8.— Chances for a western triumph in the impending renewal of the Kentucky Derby were somewhat reduced this morning when trainer C. C. Van Meter found J. W. Farrishs Rolled Stocking seriously ill with an attack of fever which developed during the night. The good bay son of Pennant and Mary Belle had a temperature of 102% degrees when first examined and this later mounted to 103% degrees before medical treatment checked the rise. Van Meter, after remaining with the colt throughout the morning, expressed the belief that the colts illness had been detected in ample time to stay any real serious developments and is hopeful that the sickness will not keep the colt out of training long enough to prevent his being prepared for the Churchill Downs engagement. Rolled Stocking had displayed no ill effects yesterday immediately following a workout of three-eighths as preparation for a longer and more exacting trial today and the sudden change in weather during the night is held largely responsible for his sickness. The night brought much rain, accompanied by a further decline in temperature and although his stable is one of the mest tightly enclosed on the track, trainer Van Meter believes that unfavorable elements are responsible for the attack of fever. Van Meter brought out Frank J. Kellys Bonaire for-an easy gallop of three-quarters mile, over the sloppy main track. With Willie Pool in the saddle, the son of Boniface and Mary Lebus. accompanied by Percentage, worked the distance in 1 :21l3. Bonaire and Percentage have been work companions for Rolled Stocking and the latters absence from the set this morning was the first of the season. Rolled Stocking is regarded as the outstanding development among the western two-year-olds of last year, and while several other western three-year-olds are held in slightly higher regard in the winter books. Rolled Stockings recent training has been very impressive and he was bidding strongly to displace his home rivals :u the most fancied western entry in the Derby. Desha Breckenridges The Huguenot, was credited with the best trial of the morning. The son of Brumado negotiated one mile in 1 :." 1%. He seemed much at home in the slop and could have moved along with better speed had trainer C. Houbre desired.
