I Withdrawal of Hawthorn
Drops Big Sum at Derby
Was Backed With $100,000 to Win; May Enter
Kentucky Handicap, Richest Turf Event of
Season; Spring Outlook Bright.
tt OUlSVILTiE, KyM May 10. Bet
I ting in winter boohs did not
J i prove nroftable to tho majority
of players in Kentucky, and os
I peciaHy Louisville, this spring. "By tbo
wiltidiawhl of Hawthorn, tbe favorite.
i from tbo Kentucky derby, it is osti
i mated that over $75,000 was lost by
! those who took a flyer on the big son
? of Hastings, which seemed to havo a
V walkover in the derby which was run
at Churchill Downs today. A quarter
f of the a'bovo sum was wagered on He-
lios, making the total, in round num
' bers, reach $100,000.
Ji Both Hawthorn and Helios, geldings
t and first and, second choices, rcspoc
: tively. in tho Kentucky classic, were
plaved heavily by tho iaithful public.
Hofios wont, "wrong in training, and
b then Hawthorn way taken ill at Icoc
I' ington. Ho was brought back to
J Louisvillo this week, and Trainer Trea
voy hopes to rnco the big golding some
''.time within tbe next week iu one of
if the stakes at tho Downs.
' "Wise horsemen point out tho fact
Llhat winter favorites rarely ever get
anything in tho derby. This was par
ticularlv true in 1010, and also this
year, tn 1910 WaMo, winner of the
r futurity tho year befor.0, looked like a
certainly. Ho trained well nnd Owner
. Harrison had already accounted the
, big race aa run und won. The son of
Plnnudos went wrong in a derby trial
three days before tho race, Owner
Harrison camo to Louisville to watch
the work of Waldo and Jockey V.
Powers, who was to , have ridden him,
was in tho raddle. After reelintr off a
mile of his journey, Walso began to
limp and Hiihscquent investigation
showed that he had injured a tendon.
Sin co then the great colt hns not
shown anything on tho turf.
Tn 191 Governor Gray was the win
: tor favorite, and yet Meridian took his
measure in tho derby. Another favor
, ito to go by tho boards was Miami In
-1909. Johnson Camden be!deved that
Miami had a bettor chance of winning
. the raco than ho believed -Helios had
j this year. The Camden horse was
1 inudo favorite in the winter books, but
' AVintergrcen, Rome Kespess's Dick
Welles colt, took bis measure when
f they met at Churchill Downs. There is
a long list of them which stand out as
a waxmiijr to the ever-gullible public,
which is. fascinated by apparent juicy
odds on horses which scorn pounds bet
ier than their rivals. Bnt it is safe
, to predict that in 1914, Little Nephew,
Dick DcMlie. Old "Rosebud or some other
star of the present season, will carry a
lot of plnv on their chances in the
Kentucky derby, rmst failures notwith-standing-.
According to bookmakers; it
is always a 2 to 1 chance that the
. horse jpla3'ed will never get to the pott.
1 Spring racintr has developed somo
j ehifty racers this year which are he-
lieved tn bo good enough to account for
some of tho plums which havo been
hung up by tho Kentuckj jockey clubs.
Among those which look oxtrnordinari
ly good nro Little Tenhew and Impera-'-.tor.
2.ycar-olds, and Flora Fina, in the
f older division. Until this spring FloTa
' Fina was not looked upon as a high
' class racer, but tho way -she took the
Hj Phoenirc Hotel handicap and the Cam-
, ,. den handicap make her figure one of
-tho best racers now in Kentucky. Sho
is by Oedop and out of tho great raco
mare. Floral Pomona.
With tho Kentucky dorby out of tho
way. horsemen aro looking forward to
the running of the Kentucky handicap
Hj opening day at Douglas park. This will
. be the richest ovent on the American
turf this enring. its valuation going
- above tho $11,000 mark. In this raco

rich plum and the raco should 'bo a

up until the wire is rcachod.
Owner Charles Buschmeyor believes
that Hawthorn will be ready to get toi
the post that day in the pink of condi
tion. If tho gelding has his former
turn of speed, he "will give Ten Point
and tho rost of them a hard tussle to
the vriro. The array of horses to go
to tho post in the Kentucky handicap
ia just as good as those which sported
silks on tho metropolitan tracks in by
gone days.
A glimpse into tho class of. horses
entered is convincing. H. C. HaJlen
beck has threo entered and tho best
will go to the post. Ho has Adams Ex
press, Eolling Stono and Frederick L.
entered, while Yankee Notions is the
hop of tho Knapp stable. If The
Managoris road3. T. C. HcDowcll will
start him; Hawthorn, Helios, Ten
Point, Leocharea and othor good ones
will represent this year's crop of 3-year-olds.
Johnny Schorr will have
tho latter alone with Froglegs and Star
Charter wearing his colors, while J.
Jl. Wuinwright believes in his famous
old Oddfellow gelding, High Private.
"Rod Mackenzie, tho Canadian, will
sand Buckhorn to the post, and the
Star Shoot colt is likoliy to take tho
fncnstire of the rest, as ho is speedy
and has more stamina than but a few
horses in training.
Spring rncing. judginir by the condi
tions existing at Lexington, will bo
more successful this spring than in
many years. Tbe association course
not only gnvo the best meeting in its
historv and jrave away more money,
but had a nice balance loft. This
means that, tho track at Lexington is
now out of debt. For four years tho
members of the jockey club there have
been saving and scraping trying to got
out of debt, und it is nlmorfc certain
that thev have succeeded.
Dotrglns park, which breaks into the
spring f?onson for the first time, also
has hiorh hones of breaking on the
right side of the ledger. On account
of the fnct that the Douglas park track
is farther from tho city than Churchill

with fears of defeat.
Hero is tho way Konneith tells
"Everything went along; swim
mingly until tbe day before tho 1
bout. Thou Dundee was seized
with a Btubborn stomach ailment.
I troatcd him and administered
mediclno, but tho little follow be
came gloomy. When we had him
on the slab at the training quarters
he cried and said, 'Hero is ono fight
in which I am going tovbe beaten.'
"Wo did our bost to cheer him
up, and nftor a whilo he grew bet
ter and I heard no further com
plaint. We aro well satisfied with
tho result, bat, just the same, I'm
thinking that if Johnny had not
had. that touch of sickness the day
before the fight, he could havo
taken Kilbane 's championship away
from him."
Matters- are" in such Bhape, of
courHo, that there will have to be
another bout. It ia up to Kilbane
to force the issue, for as long as
things remain as they are, there
will bo a cloud on his title.

Track and Field Stars Who Are Expected to Win the
Points Necessary to Give Utah Another Championship
Five Men Carry "U" Hope
for Intercollegiate and Con
ference Victories.
ALTHOUGH tho track and field ath
letes of the University of Utah
arc displaying promising: strength
as a whole, there are five mon
upon whom Coach Bcnnlon and the stu
dents haso their hope for a victory In
the state Intercollegiate and tho Rocky
Mountain conference meets. These five
men aro Flugel, Jamison. Hopkins. Cole
and Travers, v.ho thus far have proved
their caliber by winning; most of the
points for tholr school In meets held to
There Is Mttlo question but that Flugel
can beat any man In the state at the
quartor-mlle, with tho possible excep
tion of Ed Peterson, and Flagel and
Peterson are teammates, A comparison
of time records shows that Flagel Is In
the class with tho best ouarter-mllers
i in Colorado. Jamison has found all the
distance men in tho stale easy picking,
and the fact that at present he holds the
Colorado state record for tho mllo shows
how ho stands with Uio distance men of
that state. Captain Cole Is a roller of
no less repute than Jamison.
Tho students feel that with these two
men In the half and the mile, first and
osccond places aro cinched. PJIther man
can run the inilo around 4A0 and can
cut tho half closo to 2:01. If ono should
bake or get sick the other would win. It
is a matter of getting the points with
theso two men and they pity little atten
tion to the order they finish in except
that they both beat the best opponent
Hopkins and Travers aro both sprint
mon and both aro good. Either one can
do the 100-yard dash in 10 Deconde flat
or 10 1-6, and either can clip off the 220
tn 23-1 seconds. Hopkins holds the pres
ent high school state record In the low
hurdles and is a good broad Jumper.
Along with these men Peterson and
IiOfgrecn might woll appear. Thc3o men
aro sure point winners In the state meet.
"Poto" as a runner and Lofgreen with
jtho weights, but It Is a question whether
! they would fare so well against the fast
Colorado men. Tn the big conferonce
meet at Boulder a week from next Sat
urday thero Is bound to bo a big divi
sion of points and with these men who
aro cortaln of their events, Bcnnlon
hopes to pull down another championship.

B. T. McConnor, well known In local
automobile circles. Is wonderlnpr how to
make a wager and make It stick. News
permeated to him during tho week that
another auto dealer had expressed a
verbal willingness to back the Premier
against the Speedwell car at odds of two
to one, even expressing doubt that the
Speedwell occupants could got near
enough to eat the Premier's dust.
So McConnor traveled over to the Pre
mier hcadciuarters with much "kale"
and an avowed willingness to wagor It.
Thero wns nothing doing, he says. Noth
ing at all; In fact, the atmosphere was
so chilly that he couldn't warm up a cent
wager. So ho left. Now ho la wonder
ing how to get that wagor made. Sug
gestions as to handicapping will bo
thankfully received, says McConnor.
