FILLIES IN FAST WORK LOUISVILLE, Ky., May 4.— Barn Swallow and Technique, two leading candidates for the Kentucky Oaks, served warning that they will be at their best for that race when they covered a mile each in exceptionally fast time here this morning. Barn Swallow, the Col. E. R. Bradley filly, successful in her first start of the year, went the distance in 1:40%, handily, and Technique, which is owned by H. P. Headley, was never out of a breeze, going the route in 1:41. The Bradley miss finished very strong after being stoutly restrained for three-quarters, and Technique was under "wraps" from start to finish. Barn Swallow went the quarter in :25, half in :50%, and three-quarters in 1:16, while Technique negotiated the quarter in :24%, half mile in :48%, three-quarters in 1:14% and seven-eighths in 1:27%. Bamboula, owned by A. A. Baroni and also eligible for the Oaks, breezed three-quarters in 1:20, the half mile in :53%. Following a rest after her winter campaign at Agua Caliente, Bamboula only recently returned to training, but is coming to hand rapidly and promises to be ready for the closing day race.
