MOSELLE IS WORTH REMEMBERING. Maddens Excuse for King James Beck-mans Riding Is Approved Gossip. New York, June 27. Howard Oots Moselle, which was mildly backed to beat a fair lot Wednesday will soon win and is worth tracking. She won two good races in the west last year and is by Wadsworth Turtle Dove and an extra good mud runner. The filly has been working fast at Belmont and will hurt the talent one of these fine days. John Madden said after the Zephyr Stakes Tuesday that King James was recovering from bucked shins and that Kadtke had received orders to take the colt up when he saw he had no chance to win. In carrying out these orders the jockey earned a lot of harsh criticism, which was misapplied. Master HeckniHii. who is riding lightweight for trainer Weir, is just now basking In the warmth of public approval and really seems to be above the average of the unusually small beaded coterie of riders now in action. He handled Grapple, which was far the best, however, like a veteran Tuesday and did still better with Herman and George Consi-dino hardly the best Wednesday. In this race Jack Keenes Boas, the Boyal Flush III. Seythiana gelding, which beat Firestone in California last March, should have won. He was severely used In the early running and failed at the end enough to be beaten about ten feet. Evidently the screws had not been sufficiently tightened for the strain by his clever trainer. Sepoy seems to have entirely lost his form of the early part of the season. William Cahlll is not sure that he can restore Voladny to his best form, but expects to have him ready for u race at Brighton Beach. The son of Faraday came out of his last race at Oakland so laine that it was necessary to fire and blister hlni. K. F. Carman says there Is absolutely no foundation for the stories that have been going the rounds to the effect that Alfred Vanderbilt Is interested with him in the ownership of W. II. Carey, Magazine, Acrobat and other horses in bis stable. Colonel White is now In the stable of Dr. H. 1". Kowell.
