Good and Plenty and Hylaa have been wintering at Billy Garths farm I i.i Virginia. Both appear in robust bodily health and are being galloped every day. Among such a big bunch of two year-olds-twenty two in all — com- i parisons are no easy mailer. AH are well bred and good lookers, especially the four Plaudits, four Ogdens and three Pteaudes. All are well advanced, as the opponents of the stables representatives a th Dinner st;ik.s are apt to find out."
