CHARLEY THOMPSONS QUEER CASE. Fred Forsythe was astounded when the Aqueduot stewards ordered him to actatcb Charley Thompson from the third race Wednesday on the ground that the Jockey Club knew of no such horse officially. "Its funny." said Mr. Forsythe. after he tod will: drawn the Appomattox gelding, "that Charley is not known to the Jockey Club. His name is given among tile produce of his dam. Forget Me Not II.. in Volume 8 of the American Stud liook. He is eight yeara old. he has raced all over the went and he has won twenty-four times." The action of the Aqueduct alcwarda was iu no sense a teBocthtt on .Mr. Forsythe. or noon any one connected with Charley Thompson. The Anponaattos gelding simply had not been registered, as the Kules of Racing require. Mr. Forsythe will immediately register him. and it is possible that he may win a race or two in the east before lie dies.
