GOSSIP OF THE TURF. A car load of horses left the Latonia racetrack Wednesday for New Orleans. In the car were horses, the property of F. A. Do-herty, Sam Jones, Ed Stringer, A. J. Bresch and Billy Woods. Woods, who is a very clever man with the runners, sent Ravens-bury, which was the "Hindoo" of the Newport track last winter and was reinstated at the last meeting of the Western Jockey Club. Yearling trials produced fast time by several members of M. H. Tichenor and Co.s baby brigade last Tuesday morning at Memphis. A colt by The Pepper worked three-eighths in 6:37 1t5, which was regarded as the best , accomplished by the Chicago stable. An un- named colt by Azra Mishap, and therefore jA full brother to Jaubert, did almost as well kpthe son of The Pepper. It was considered very hard luck for Baron De Rothschild, the principal employer of OConnor, the American jockey, to whom he pays a retaining fee of 5,000 per annum, that his stable barely won enough this year to pay the jockeys salary. W. S. Fanshawe, owner of Heno, has leased from Clarence H. Mackay the following yearlings, which are now in charge of William Lakeland, at Brighton Beach: Chestnut colt, by Ayrshire Miss Ellie. " Brown filly, by Plaudit Response. Bay colt, by Plaudit Dama. Bay colt, by Plaudit Regalia. Bay filly, by Plaudit Nellie Osborne. t Chestnut colt, by Mirthful Hebric.
