SIX MORE STAKES FOR BRIGHTON. De Mund to Start in the Toboggan — A Line on Some of the Good Horses. New York. May S.— President C. J. Fitzgerald, of the Brighton Beach Racing Association, announces mx stakes supplementary to those which closed on January 2. Three of them are to be run at the Mimnier meeting and the others in the fall. In four of these stakes, the Sunshine and Indergrad-uate. for two-year-olds; the Mercury Handicap, for all ages, and the Chantilly Steeplechase. Brightoi has taken a step that will meet with the approval of horsemen. While the money added to the-e slakes by the association remain-; M large as it wis in other years, the subscription fees have been reduced from 0 to 5 and the forfeit fee is only » — no larger than the subscription fee to au overnight entry. These stakes, the nomination to which close on June 1, include the Triumph Stakes, which has $.r . KX. and tiie historic Pliarsalie plate, valued at B3.MM, added to it. The Triumph, which is for two year-olds, at a mile, coming as it does at a -mm son when the crack colts and illies are at their best, is confirmatory of class and championship, and therefore appeals peculiarly to sportsmen owners. The Westchester Racing Association has ordered printed just 40.00 programs for tomorrow. On Carter Handicap day the supply at Aqueduct ran short. The Belmont Park people are providing against such a contingency on Metropolitan Handicap day. There is not a single big star plunger in the b.tting ring this year so far. With the passing of "Joe*" Yeager, "Pittsburg Phil." "Whitey" Lang don, "Jack" McDonald, Riley Grannan, Arthur Featheistone and Newton Bennington, there is scarce I single member of the old guard left on the Mne. •Davy" Johnson is the last of the money prodigals. He still can set it in on occasion. Trainer Weir timed Roncbens Monday mile at Cravesend in l:40ij and not 1 ::;! ]!, as some dispatches bail it. The fractious were in 12. 23, ,.". 7_. 1:01, 1:14, 1:27. l:40jj. It was cracking work easily done, and the furlongs shown were in 12, 11. 12. Ml, TO, IS, It, TO. If the field is large. as is probable, the bay horse is likely to he much aided by his early speed and Martin, as was Dr. Gardner in the Excelsior. Go Between is in fine condition. His last work was 111 impressive seven furlongs in 1 :20. and he is ready for the Metropolitan, though a doubtful starter. Angler is at Suecpshead Bay, about ready for the races. Glorifier was not beaten up so badly as reported in the rough work of the Excelsior. He worked a good mile — in 1:4:; — at Sheepshead Bay yesterday and is ready to race and wiu again in the handicap division. Lady Amelia looks well and is about fit. She is at Sheepsliead and working halves in 48 seconds at the asking. She will appear and be ready to win at Belmont Park. Tom McDowells shifty mares. Kings Daughter and Lady Anne are on edge. Both will be worth attention in the Belmont Park s*priiits. Banner, in the same stable, seems to have almost as much speed as the other two males. De Mund is now being pointed for the Toboggan Handicap and shows great and effortless speed in his training. Sewell worked a mile at Sheepsliead Bay Mondav without blinkers and was swerving in the Wretch to finish in 1:42, though he came home with something to spare. So far in his races Oraculum has shown little or no courage, though he is a colt of great si eed. Whimsical, in Mondays race, showed no improvement and could not be considered as a factor for the Metropolitan Handicap. The confidence of the stable would seem to suggest possible improvement that did not work out. and she is almost sure to do better with another week or two.
