Roman with a view of bringing the grand colt from California early this spring and giving him a special preparation for the Brooklyn and Suburban Handicaps He is priced at more than 12000 too high The colt is in the handi hand ¬ caps more than well and if in condition and the track is fast he would have an excellent chance to win one or both the big races There does not seem to be any limit to the effort of the local firm to get the best and win the high ¬ est prizes of tjhe the turf It may get The Roman Tom Ryan is negotiating for him himKelston rhinestone Kelston Keelson of the Spirit of The Times discussing Phil Dwyers Dyers lot says The string consists of eleven head all of which are in splendid shape Handball has improved as much as he well could do and is now an exceptionally handsome wellfurnished and bloodlike bloodline horse His hardcolored varicolored chestnut coat has an almost midsummer polish Hand ¬ ball was handicapped in the early part pf last season by having a bad splint This has now been got rid of and as he is today I reckon him one of the most valuable horses in training and certainly to be heard from in stake events eventsThe events The 2yearolds of which there are nine are chestnut colt by Hanover Eloise chestnut colt by Hanover Pandora bay colt by Han ¬ over Glen Belle bay colt by Hindoo Indoor Bonnie Gal bay colt by Favor Belle Garland brown colt by Watercress Madrid chestnut colt by Kingston Bonita Bonito bay colt by Rousseau Hay tienne Etienne and bay filly by Hanover Aurania Paranoia AuraniaOf Paranoia Of the four Hanovers Hanover the Eloise colt and the Pandora colt are both very promising The latter who is a halfbrother Galbraith to Box is a low lengthy wellfurnished youngster on short legs The Aurania Paranoia filly is not very tall but is a lengthy nicelybalanced microbalance filly The colt by Watercress Madrid a Billet mare who ran and won in the Dwyer Brothers colors is quite a useful looking sort patterned after his dam damBut ambit But the pick of the lot is the Hindoo Indoor Bonnie Gal colt who is a good deal on the same order as his sire This highly tried youngster has like the others in the string come on in the right way Still on looking him over the other day he struck me as being just a bit lacking in range for a colt of high class not that he is on the pinched order by any means yet at present he is a bit lacking in length for one on his lines Quite a smart racylooking crayoning colt is the bay by Favor Belle Garland GarlandThe Garland The Prince of Wales has signed Watts the English jockey for first call on his services for the coming season The Prince of Wales now has nine horses in training at Newmarket Newark five of which are twoyearolds toeholds bred at Sandring Sanding ham in the royal stud It will be upon his two yearolds earls that the Prince will have to depend in the main this season on the turf Sandring Sanding ham the brother of Persimmon who has been retired to the stud is said to be a splendid colt He will probably be seen at the Ascot meeting but his debut may be delayed until the July meeting at Sandown Sundown Park where ho is engaged for the 5000 guineas which is the richest twoyearold toehold event of the season He is also entered for the Prince of Wales Post Sweep ¬ stakes at Goodwood Godhood The Prince has also a yearling brother to Persimmon and Sandring Sanding ham of which much is expected expectedThe expected The Thornton Horton Stakes at four miles will be run at Oakland next Saturday Just what horses will run is not as yet known but Judge Denny Deny 115 Garland Barr 112 Wawona Aswoon 113 and Marplot 86 have been announced as certain starters by the two Frisco papers Other horses engaged that can run fast and are stayers slayers are Ruinart

that the race record at four miles will be eclipsed Divisions of Ed Corrigans Corrigan horses are so widely scattered that his gallopers will have half forgotten acquaintances to renew when they are
