TURF FOLLOWERS WATCH TRYOUTS CLOSELY AS KENTUCKY RACE CLASSIC APPROACH! f FTVE WHITNEY NAGS IN DERBY GETATTENTION Easterners Entry Favored by Many to Win—Donnaconna Attracts Followers. LOUISVILLE, May 6.—From the stable of Harry Payne Whitney, New York mil lionaire, is expected to come the win ner of the forty-sixth eKntncky Derby, to be run here Saturday. Fire of Whitney's crack three-year olds are prepared to start in the derby. Damask. Wildair, J. P. Grier, Upset, and Dr. Clark are believed ready. However, Sterling's sensational work, stepping a mile and a quarter with his weight up in 1:06 at Churchill Downs caused turf fans to wonder if their ool cuLiticns would not have to he revised. Sterling is by Herron, a sire that al ready has one Derby winner this year, Herron, winner of the Cuban stakes. MUST BE GIVEN CONSIDERATION. Last season the Van Meter colt showed flashes of form, but did not display enough to justify the belief that he was a Derby possibility. His development this spring, growth, conformation, everything, point to such improvement that he must be given con sideration by the wiseacres. Shrewd observers who saw John P. Grier, Upset and Wildair on the track here were not so much impressed by John P. Grier as advance notices from the east would have indicated. Wildair looked the best of the trio. Damask, winter champion, is a well plucked one. as the British would say. There is no doubt that Damask Is a sturdv performer, but there is some question If hU blood will stand the strain of a mile and a quarter trip. WINTER BOOKIES MAY BE HIT. Donnaconna appears to have an ex cellent chance. If he wins the makers of winter books will be hard hit, as he has been the most extensively played of any colt here. Blazes and Paul Jones, the Parr colts, have been under cover, apparently, though they breezed a mile and a quar ter in a shade over 2:09. Blazes showed one disappointing per fnrmance when falling to finish in the money in the race won by Sandy Beat from Paul Jones. Sandy Beal has a small, but enthusias tic following. The Murray colt is a win ner when the barrier flies up. He may be the outsider to bring Joy to the hearts of his suporterß. It now seems probable that the favorite Saturday will be at good odds. The whltney entry will rule choice at better than 2 to 1 In the belief of most of the odds makers. Donnaconna should be 4 or 5 to 1; the Parr entry, about 6 to 1; Sandy Beal. 10 to 1; Peace Pennant, 10 to 1: Coch;an entry, 20 to 1; By Golly. 25 to 1, and the field, bunching other starters, including The Swimmer. 40 to 1. PRINCE PAL ALSO SHOWS STRONG. Best work of Derby candidates at the downs Wednesday was done by Damask and Wildair. from the Whitney atable, and Prince Pal, owned by Edward F. Simms. Each did a mile and a. quarter in 2:os 4-5. Upset, working bv himself, went a mile and a quarter in 2:10. all out. Donna conr.a went the Derby route in 2:00 2-5. Blazes and Paul Jones, the Parr entry, worked together in 2:10. Robinson rode the former and Schuttinger the latter Miss Muffins worked half a mile in 47 4-5 seconds, proving that the track was right on edge. Wrestling Here Tonight With Greek Demetral and Italian Callerim Ready Indianapolis wrestling fans are offered high-class entertainment at Tomlinson hall tonight, where Josepho Callerini and William Demetral, two of the best heavy mat men in the country, will meet. Demetral, who is generally regarded as one of the most sensational mat artists in the game, probably will have his bands full when he takes the mat with Callerini. Italian champion. Since coming to this country a few years ago the Italian has met and de fea*ed most of the wrestlers In his class, and if he throws the Greek demon tonight Promoter Charleson has promised to match him "with Joe Stecher, world’s champion. This match will be carded in Indian apolis, providing the people here show that they are ready to boost the game. Two preliminary bouts between local wrestlers will open the card tonight, starting at sls o'clock. Women with escorts will be admitted free. Robby Says He’ll Bat .350 if Not Bothered There are reasons to believe that Have ■Robertson, one-time Giant, now with the Cubs, has been a victim of too much management. He was always rated as a potential .350 hitter, but only once In his career did he surpass .300. Dave says: “I suppose the pnblle thinks McGraw has treated me with forbearance. My main complaint with McGraw was and is that be tries to handle everybody alike. • It is a system that will never develop a star. My baseball career up to date has been a disappointment to everyone, most of all to myself. "I am quite certain that I could have developed Into a .350 hitter if left alone. U-efer to make Infield hits, for an In hit gets the infield up in the air more than any other one thing.” BOXING DOWXEI SURE DID HIT. CINCINNATI. May o—Bryan Downey.

There in only one Toledo. Josh Devore is getting nearer Canada all the time. Old Josh knows something. The Kansas City Blues must be trying to corner the pitcher market. Hardly a day goes by that Alex McCarthy doesn’t hook anew twlrler. Still the club Is trailing the league. The jumping fever hit the Minne apolis cluo and Pongo Joe Is short a hurler. Look out for the reappearance of Old Roy Patterson. Mike Cantlllon, brother of Joe, is president of the South Dakota league. Chances are that all the clubs are using borrowed uniforms. Mike never did be lieve in keeping the garment workers busy. Owner Smith of the Indians will be at Louisville for the Derby and the Tribe's games there. Smith likes to see the ponies run. And he never sits down during the entire afternoon of a race meeting. And Smith won't be the only prominent Indianapolis man present at tne Derby. The day or the turf classic always sees south-bound trains crowded with Hoo slers. They can't get over the Ohio river fast enough on that day. The Saints staged their usual rally yes i terday, scored two runs in the ninth and beat the Berewers for the eighth time this season. The Kelleyltes are In nn- I other winning streak, having anexed the i last seven games. The Blues gained on the Indlajos when they knocked the Millers off. Brock stemmed a homer with two on in the sixth. Miller Is out of the Blue lineup as a result of an attack of diphtheria i The Millers are in hard luck. Follow ing the desertion of Pitcher Hansen, j Third Baseman McDonald was spiked and will be out of action for a short time. The Toledo Hens were to have another big day today.
