, GOSSIP OF THE TURF. The Nantura yearling-, fifteen head, the property of F. B. Harper, were shipped to Sheeps-head Bay Tuesday morning where they will be sold in the American Horse Exchange paddocks next Monday. ThiB collection of yearlings is one of the choicest sent out from the Blue Grass this year. Conspicuous among the number was a grand looking colt, own brother to Traverser and Elizabeth Klein, a handsome hall sister to Longstreet and a magnificent son of Farandole and Ala Baba, by Glenelg. The latter colt is considered the best individual offered of the lot. From New York it is announced tnat "Uncle Dan" Harness has decided most positively to , retire Imp to the stud after this season, though she is still sound and will fill Borne of her fall engagements. It is stated that when Tod Sloan returns to England he will take Willie Simms with him. Simms was in England with Michael F. Dwyer and made a fail*re of it then, but conditions have totally changed since that time. The crack three-year-old colt. Prince of Ve-ronia, has almost fulty recovered from the accident he sustained in a railroad crash on his way back from the south last spring. He is by Cayuga— Veronia. and is owned by the firm of A. H. and D. H. Morris. The colt showed promise of being one of the cracks of his year and oarned brackets in three early races, including the Crescent City Derby at New Orleans, when he defeated Sidney Lucas at even weights. He will be a factor in coming events at Sheepshead Bay. Gravesend and Morris Park. Program books for the first week of HariemV next meeting, which opens next Monday, Labor Day. were issued last night by Secretary Nath-anson. For the opening day he ha prepared an attractive card — one which merit- the approval of horsemen, and it is one that should appeal favorably turf patrons. The program provide.- for a stake race every other day. The book shows an occasional increase iu the value of purses, especially for the first day s card, and as the good horses arrive the purses will be further increased, as the season progresses. ~~ 0OMTIMDKD ON SB0OHD FAOl GOSSIP OF THE TURF.
