NAME YOUR TWO-YEAR-OLDS NOW. The attention of owners anil breeders is called by the Jockey Club to the rule which provides that all two-year-olds must be named on or before March 1 and that after that dateu name can he registered upon the payment of a 0 fine. No name that has been employed during the previous five years, either in the stud or on the turf, can be duplicated. Otherwise the rule places no restriction on the names that can be used, although the Registry Office of the Jockey Club has the right to reject those that are objectionable. Some of the larger owners take time in selecting names for their young eolts, and fillies, and also show a desire to hit upon something appropriate. F;ut other horsemen usually go iilMjut the task in a haphazard, thoughtless way, which in some instances results in burdening horses with absurd names. The practice of naming two-year-olds, after brands of cigars, wliiskeys and other things will be frowned upon In future, together with the selection of names of notorious persons.
