NOTES OF THE TURF. W. Davis is at Ascot, but he scales 122 pounds. Bullman Is also at Ascot, where he is working hard to get down to riding weight. Newton Bennington is in the French Hospital, New York and progressing favorably from an operation he underwent last Saturday. Jockey Mountain, who has been in Chicago for several days past, has decided to go to New Orleans to ride free lance Instead of going to California. Turfman David Dunlsp has bought a full yearling brother of Pater from William Garth for ,000. The youngster is said to be a fine, looker and to have showed speed of a high order. x As a coincidence the California Derby and the Crescent City Derby each secured eighty-seven entries. It is now in order to await the announcement of the City Park nominations. William Garth has been engaged to train for R. A. Rainey next year. With Ginette, Horace E Computer and a band of yearlings already in hand as a starter, Mr. Rainey has engaged to maintain a stable of twenty horses for the Virginia trainer to handle. Recounting the vote by which Ascot Park was said to have been annexed to Los Angeles has almost dissipated the narrow margin by which the measure carried in the country districts. Two more votes changed will defeat the project and racing at the track will be safe for the present, at least. Joe Pughs horses, In care of trainer John Hall, left Latonia yesterday for New Orleans. Field Marshal, Free Booter, Fonsoluca, Goldproof, Squanderer and three yearlings by Kinley Mack, Long-street and Maceo respectively, comprise the Pugh string. P. H. Jones Lady Esther went south in the same car.
