GOSSIP OF THE TURF. J. B. Respess has returned to Cincinnati, after a months sojourn at Hot Springs. He will devote all his time now to the training of the twenty-two head of thoroughbreds which he has in quarters at his farm near Glendale, O. These horses have been galloping under the shed, twelve times around, which is a mile, and as soon as the weather opens up they will be put to work on the farm track. None of the horses will be sent to Latonia, but all will be kept at the farm until the outfit is ready for shipment to Chicago, where Mr. Respess will begin the seasons campaign. He says the horses are all in good health, and that his three American Derby candidates, Dick Welles, Collonade and Bernays are looking good and doing nicely. The racing string of McNulty and McDer-ment, which includes OHagen and other horses, has arrived at Memphis from New Orleans, but could not secure accommodations at Montgomery Park. The Memphis Jockey Club announces that each one of the 700 or more stalls are filled or spoken for, and new stables are being built. There are twenty-six high-class thoroughbreds quartered on August Belmonts farm at Babylon, L. I. Mizzen, the colt that ran so well at Morris Park last spring, has wintered exceptionally well and is a grand type of the high-class race horse. His muscular development is remarkable.
