meetingThe meeting The stables of W H Roller and J W Wilson were shipped to Detroit yesterday yesterdayEugene yesterday Eugene Leigh has decided to send Parson to Canada to perform over the jumps and in the interest of general theology theologyH theology H Martin has a high opinion of Pingree Pongee Speaking of the colts race he said He had so much speed and was so rank that I could not take him back without pulling him all over the track and that I would not do After he had gone a half he was easy to handle and I took him back He had Cherry Leaf safe every ¬ where and left him on call He showed himself a game horse when The Devil tackled him in the stretch The race will do him a lot of good and I believe he will improve with racing Mr Belknap Belinda has a useful if not a high class horse in Pingree Pongee PingreeIn Ingrain In the fourth race just after finishing the odd seventy yards Indra Indrawn made a lunge to the right and gave his head a violent swing in the same direction Spectators shouted Look at him trying to bite Chugnut Chung Caywood Cawed said that the biting idea was not correct and that the horse simply resisted being taken back and showed temper in doing so soTurner sourer Turner was called to the stand three times by Col Cool Clark Before going to the post for the stake event he was admonished that a vigorous finish on Hugh Penny was desired After the race he was called up and complimented for the manner in which he had ridden and told to try and do equally well every time he had a mount While the 2yearolds were parading for the sixth race Turner riding King Barley corn was invited to a judicial call Col Cool Clark told him that inasmuch as his mount had receded in the betting and Batten had been heavily backed the ride King Barley ¬ corn would get would be closely watched After the race Gene Leich Lich sent Turner to the stand to make a complaint against Hill who rode Batten King Barleycorn is a sulker sulkier and will bite at horses that bump him Turner told his employer that going the first quarter around the turn Hill was bumping him all the time with tho thou evident intention of making King Bar ¬ leycorn lector sulk These tactics had some effect according to Master Turner Batten had hardly been shaken off before Barleycorn swerved wickedly across to tho thou inside rail shaking his head and showing that his ire was fully aroused But he won wonImp won Imp was well and playful yesterday She fhowed showed no signs of having had a bruising race the day before Charlie Brossman Grossman thinks more of her than ever
