DOUBTFUL DERBY STARTER * J. N. Camdens Hydromel Develops High Fever and Sore Throat. ♦ E. R. Bradleys Bewithns Is Given Final Preparation for Big Race— J. C. Milam Will Rely on Mr. Kirkwood. ♦ LOUISVILLE, Ky., May 10.1. N. Camdens Hydromel is a doubtful starter in the Kentucky Perby. He came out of his race Monday showing a temperature of nearly 104 degrees. His exact condition will probably not be determined until tomorrow. Trainer Pan Stewart, in the charge of the horse, will make known then if he considers the colt recovered sufficiently to start. In view of the high fever the colt had. supposedly while he was racing, his winning effort was nothing short of marvelous and proved him about as game a racer as ever stood on plates. The fever abated today and his temperature is normal, but the veterinarian in attendance was concerned over the sore throat the colt had contracted. Col. E. R. Bradleys Bewithus was given his final preparation for the Derby when he galloped the Derby distance of one mile and a quarter this morning. He negotiated the long route in 2 :13 and. considering the muddy condition of the track, his trial was a good one. After the first quarter in :24%, he was joined by Boot to Boot and completed the half mile in :49%, three-quarters in 1:15% and the mile in 1:45. Boot to Boot ran his mile in 1 :46%. Buddy Bauer, which started in the Preak-ness Stakes is due to return to Churchill Downs at noon Wednesday. At the same time Freddie Hopkins will arrive with ten horses of the H. P. Whitney stable including three of Mr. Whitneys Derby candidates. While J. C. Milan was disapopinted with the race of his colt. Mr. Kirkwood, in the Prospect Purse Monday, he has fully decided to name him as a Derby starter. J. E. Wideners Osmand and Kiev were given a slow workout at a half mile each for their race of Wednesday. They ran together in 50%. Rip Rap, the Sage Stables Derby hopeful, arrived from Maryland Monday and was sent an easy half mile in :52%. the first quarter in :26. Trainer Max Hirsch, accompanied by jockey Steve ODonnell, who will ride the colt Saturday, arrived Tuesday and announced that he intends to give the colt a trial over the full Derby route some time Wednesday.
