HARLEM NOTES. McChesney worked well at Harlem Park yesterday morning for trainer Hildreth, who declares the western champion will be right at his best for the Harlem National Handicap a week from Saturday, if no bad weather intervenes. T. C. McDowell was so pleased with the way his great colt Allan-a-Dale came out of his mile-race at Latonia on Monday that he has written to reassure the Harlem Jockey Club he has a "sure starter and probable winner." This was Allans second start this spring, after being laid up for a year subsequent to winning the Kentucky. Derby. A few days ago McDowell tried him in a six-furlong race and was pleased when he ran second and cooled out all right. Now he has done the same at a mile. With another race or two he will be about ready for the mile Varid three-sixteenths at Harlem, June 6. jMonarka, from the same stable, also is being fitted for the big Harlem race. ••Belles Commoner made this seasons debut in the same race, but was plainly short for a mile trip the first time out. He and Six Shooter and the Derby colts Dick Welles, kCollonade and Bernays will not reach Har- ■fin Park for a week. Carroll Reld, trainer for Middleton and wbluth, has wired Secretary Nathanson of the Harlem Jockey Club that his stable will reach the Proviso course today or tomorrow. He has The Picket, Shooting Star and Manru in the 0,000 Harlem National Handicap. John H. Morris has written he expects to arrive at Harlem about the end of the week with fifteen horses of his own and George J. Longs stable. They come from Louisville. Fred Cook, who has Linguist and Lendin in the Harlem National, says he has thirty-three horses stabled at Harlem.
