RACING GOSSIP There isnt isn't an ounce of ailment among the horses at the Indiana tracks At Cincinnati it is different There has been a great deal of sickness among the horses at Oakley Ankle Nearly every horse that came from Louisville is ailing Although Lucky Baldwins Baldwin string has been at Oakley Ankle for nearly a month he has not yet been able to send one of his horses to the post The Westchester Esthete Stable has also been unf un ortuate fortunate in this particular This stable went to Oakley Ankle two weeks before the races opened and has been there ever since but has not one start to its credit Wednesday the stable was shipped to St Louis LouisAround Louisa Around New York there is a similar condition of horse health affairs Twothirds Toothier of the horses are on the sick list Keenan has been coughing for a month and has been started anything but a well horse Belmar Bellman the gallant little gray is the latest patient and was struck out of the Brooklyn in consequence Donohue Downpour the trainer of the Erie stable with his usual shrewdness removed the horses from Morris Park to Brooklyn to escape the contagion as he has Lazzarono Lazar and Nanki Nan Pooh engaged in the big handicaps One I Love and Bastion in the Brookdale Boodle stables were almost at deaths door last week the latter being taken just after win ¬ ning Ming the Laureate stakes Poor Starter Flyuu Flu He has run against the lurid notions of New York Tribune Bowers the worst enemy that the eastern turf has ever had because of his strabismus out of speculation and his ability to tell a tale against the item considered to be the chief factor of his financial woe Flynn evidently let off something Bowers bet on badly there is a probable double appli applied ¬ cation caption and thus the Boweresque Bowers story runs Wherefore this gelid gelatinous ghostly and gloomful gloom slowness Starter Flynn His work is slow clumsy bungling in almost every race You ought to consult a medical expert Starter Flynn Phosphorous is an effective brain stim tim ¬ ulant ulan when used in right doses So is arsenic when proberly properly applied And quinine and black coffee and antique brandy of the days of Napo Nap ¬ leon Bonaparte have been employed to advan advance ¬ tage stage in certain cases Now Mr Flynn pray go and see a doctor and get a prescript m of phos pos ¬ phorus porous and arsenic and black coffee and qui ¬ nine and mediaeval brandy and brace up upThe Ute The Bowers of the turf are too many and too well used Bowers was ruled off once The Eastern folks make a mistake when they ruled him on again The newspaper cloak is some ¬ times too strong for the sake of justice justiceBen justice Ben Brush goes at once to St Louis for the 20 000 National Derby which is to be run at the Fair Grounds a week from Saturday or to go to dates June 20 That prize the Oakley Ankle Derby for which Prince Lief Leif defeated the great son of Bramble and the Latonia Antonia Derby probably worth 13000 to be run the following Thurday Thursday Jfene Fence 25 brought Mike Dwyer west and incident ¬ ally aided the western sport Mike Dwyer is a much discussed man Why not Hes Hess great in his line and treats the turf like his counter ¬ part in speculation treats stocks He has won a great deal and lost a great deal but less than he has won Mike Dwyer has many enemies principally bookmakers and their attachments Every sharp figure in every line of life has They are those or the friends of those that have stacked up against Dwyer and fallen down But none can say that the ox butcher has over followed any but a winning way The winning ways the public way and the American public likes Mike Dwyer and his horses If the figures were at hand they would show that he has bet more than 10000000 in his turf career mostly at short prices After the Latonia Antonia Derby Mr Dwyer is likely to go East with his stable and use it on the Metropolitan tracks to the end of the season Mr Dwyers Dyers hardest nut its the juiciest though is the St Louis race In it he has to meet Crescendo BothRamiros Botherations Prince Lief Leif Beau Ideal II Santa Bella Ella Semper Simper Ego Barba Barb rossa rosa and Nimrod Imo are all in it The suggestion of contest about such a field is sharp even though Crescendo is not just right rightIn righting In the Latonia Antonia race Mr Dwyer also has Ben Eder Edger The best his pair has to meet are Ramiro by Fonso Fonts Nimrod Imo Loki Sir Yassar Vassar Semper Simper Ego Barney Schreibers Schreiber pair Barbarossa Barbarisms and Schiller Chiller and The Winner The Latonia Antonia Derby seems to be at the mercy of Ken Brush Even Ben Eder Edger might win it The general health of racing is improving all about No one suspected that the Kentucky yearlings sold by Tattersalls Tattersall last Monday would bring an average of nearly 200 Yet they did There was a hint of returning health in the ifrittes fritters Mr EHSKftrgOtFfortTie Haggin Haggling yearlifigl yearling in the spring The same clever salesman is likely to exhibit some more healthy prices at the Belle Meade Sale over which he presides and the prospectus of which is given in DAILY RAC AC ¬ ING IN FORMS advertising columns The local sport hints at the same improve ¬ ment meant in condition When it was reported yes ¬ terday tray that Barney Schreiber was likely to come here I guessed through the glass of happening and knowledge of the Dutchmans Dutchman leaning to ¬ ward smart action Since then news and gos egos ¬ sip both corroborate the idea If Schreiber comes Pat Dunne is likely to accompany him Theres Theresa a world of class in the two stables Flying Dutchman Captive Salvable Scribe Green Jacket Schiller Chiller Barbarossa Barbarisms Don Carillo Carillon Ellen and some more would be added to the local racing division through them Caesarian is here too and the Hayes lot headed by Rondo and Manzanita Tanzania is also due The racing toward the close of the Forsyth Forsythia and during all the future meetings at the three Indiana tracks will have more of the real racing edge of publicity about it the publicity that brings out senti sent ¬ ment meant and health healthMr health Mr Hayes by the way is in love with Rondo He has a reason to be The well named colt hes hems by Pirate of Penzance Penance Song has won him eight of thirteen races this year and some 10000 Hayes declined one offer from Leon Legg Leggy of 4000 for the colt and a second one of some 5250 from Hankins Hawkins Johnson Both bidders know horses well Hayes likes the colt and therefore values him higher than he should Legg Leggy thinks hes hems the best ho has seen this sea ¬ son Leggs Legs a firstclass fistulas critic Rondo was a good colt last fall He won his last four races The only suspicion about him was that about weight He never shouldered the impost of the high class of his age But he won well and the form the colt has shown this season proved that he was well placed and managed last fall
