I MULLIGAN NOW OWNS INQUISITOR. I Montreal Shipping Arrangements — Hildreths Opinion of Firestone — Gossip. . , New York, May 0. — Larry Mulligan and Archie Ziniincr are now tlie owners of Inquisitor. They j bought the son of Inspector B. from the Newcastle , . Stable Saturday, paying ,500 for him. Unless he be cosies S chronic bleeder, thev have a pretty serviceable horse in Inquisitor. He bled a bit after his last race at Jamaica, but the veterinarians who examined him reported that it was not from tlie lungs and that it was uot apt to lieoome a malady with him. The Newcastle Stable has decided to send a string to the second circuit in charge of Maurice Welsh, brother of Tom Welsh, the trainer and new partner in the establishment. Oaklawn. the colt for which August Belmont paid Will Shields 130,060, was one of the performers over bardies at the Meadow Brook Steeplechase Associa- lions meeting at Westbury Saturday and managed to finish third to Doable o. and Baddy, but not until Bayonet went down at tlie last hurdle. The American Hxpress Company, whose shipping agents have studied ap the matter, guarantee that they can traaafer horses from any track on Long Island to Ihe stables at the Montreal course in twelve boars. Tlie rate is 90 a car by express from Grand Central Station, or 90 a car from any of tlie Long Island tracks, the frugal Long Island Railroad Charging » a car for the short haul to Manhattan. With Ibis arrangement a man can ship a horse to Mon. real ior one of the stakes, spend a day there and return the following night, thus missing only one day from the local track. The getting of racehorses across the line will he attended to by the Montreal Jockey Club, so that there will lie no trouble from customs officers. If an owner wishes to ■hip his horses from here to Montreal, and thence to Buffalo, he can take them Into Canada and out ■gala In bond. It Is only a run of seven hours and a half from Montreal to Toronto and three hours and a half from there to Buffalo over one of the best double ttack railroads In Canada. Sam Hildreth brought nine horses with him when he came in from California last week. They arc Tony Faust. King Cole. Guiding Star. Rapid Water and live two year olds. It is Hildreths intention to give these harsea SaCSI a rest as will freshen them up for the metropolitan campaign. Horse men here are much interested in Firestone and Walter Miller. Ihe two year olds Hildreth sold to President Tom Williams of the New California Jockev Club for 0,006 and .KH . respectively. "They are bath good colts. said Hildreth to a group In the paddock at Jamaica, "and I have no doubt that Ihey will hold their own In competition with tlie best In this neck of the woods when Doctor Rowell comes this way for the summer and fall meetings. In all of his races Firestone has been uailsf ai .,; ■ sod in impi esses uie as being a colt that will go on. Walter Millers last race was in the nature of cnlirniation of his supposed quality and, in my estimation, he is a far better horse than he has evidenced in public." Harry Kuhl is here for a bit of relaxation after his busy winter as secretary at City Park, and he has been a daily visitor al Jamaica. Jockey William Hoar, who is riding in Russia. announces in a letter to a friend in this city that be was married a few weeks ago to an American yoang woman who has been playing with a theatrical company in that country. According to Hoars letter, all Russia is racing mad and the sport is in a wonderfully prospeioiis condition since the close of the war with Japan. Hoar declares he is making four times the money he would receive for his time and service in this country. The Bcooklya Jockey Club has decided to add a private hospital to the equipment of its Qraveeead racing plant and the building. which is to be located at lie corner id Kings Highway and Gravesend Avenue. , ill be roadx before the fall meeting open-. It is not that the club is anticipating numerous , accidents or a plague of any sort, but such an institution appear* to be a necessity tor the reason that Ihe nearest hospital is more than two miles away. r Jockey Sam Seder, who was suspended at City Park, has made application to the American Turf • Association for reinstatement. The directors of that organization will meet at Louisville Tuesday and in the event of favorable action Seder will ap . ply for a license to ride here. Fred Burlew, it is understood, has offered him an engagement. Lacing folks hereabouts ate suspecting that Hart- I ford Boy *Is another Amlierjack. During those frosty days in late February and early March. "Father Bill" Daly was honing this young son of Royal Stag over the boulevards and through the I slush in preparation for Benning. where it was promised that he would land a prize the first time " out. lie has started four times and he is still = bracket less. The latest excuse for him is that he " lias a son- mouth. II A winter at Billy Garths farm in Virginia has 1 Watted wonders with Qood and Plenty. Those who ■ saw the winner of two Whitney Memorials pull up lame after his success at Belmont Iark last spring probably never expected to see this splendid steeplechaser race again, but that notion must have been knocked aallywest from such as saw the Hitchcock champion go his one turn of the field when the _ Belmont Park cour»e was thrown opeu for jumping trials last week. Good and Plenty acquitted himself so brilliantly that it is the prediction of good judges who saw him that he will race better than a ever this year. Other impressive trials noted recently are those of T. S. Martin. Sanctus, St. Kevin. : Grandpa. Altar. Hylas. Garrett. California King. Dr. Keith. Fallahecn. Kassi and Agent. The last l[. named, is is generally predicted, will be one of the brilliant cross country performers of this year. •e . i . * i i I i | i i i i ; | I | I
