ever raced for the big prize, but what it
lacks In quantity it makes up for and to
spare In quality. Every horse In it is in
fine rctllu, as has been shown in u rare

CLIFFORD A RED-HOT FAVORITE.
Clifford, the stout sou of Bramble, Is

turfites that he is to be lirst considered In
the list of candidate!!. Iu t-e absence of
Henry of Navarre, who was scratched
because he was unfit, Clifford will Lu the
hottest ravorite since Tenia's. ear.
St. Maxim, in the opinion or many. Is lliblc
to give him the stirrent kind or .111 argu
ment. The son or St. Minis. went amiss
and was not himself as a three-jearoldor
four-jear-old. He showed plainly in his

Maxim is a fine, up-standing horse and a
grand looker. Trainer Bob Tucker sajs he
will run the handicap dista lice, one and one
quarlcr miles, in 2.07. ir the horse call do
this he will win. Tor it Is doubtful If i'ic
race will be run under those figures. St.
Maxim, iu his trial a couple or dajs ago,
went the handicap dita nee In 2:1 3 In wraps.
It was a grand trial and very pleasing to his
owners, his trainer and the stable rollow

has acid' wisely In keeping his cr.uk out

is bound to be.
Mr. Dwyer. while smarting under 'lie

It Is likely that Hastings and Handspring

ness until he was declared the, winner In
the seventeenth round. The fight was u

Next to the Sharkey-Williams fight, the
Interest centered in the ten-round contest
.between Billy Gallagher and Danny Need

rounds- were in Needham's favor and the
last five In Gjllaghcr's.
