NOTES OF THE TURF. Kimball Patterson has signed a contract to train for R. P. Marshall of New York next season. Johnny Keiff will have the mount on Querido in the St. Leger at Doncaster a week from today. Alfar, winner of the Grand National Steeplechase at Belmont Park, in the spring, has been thrown out of training. Max Samuelson and John B. Kwing had a bit of a row in the Phoenix Hotel at Lexington Monday. No .blood spilled. At present few of the race courses in Russia are being used, but horsemen in that country expect mere racing the coming year. Jockey Willie Walsh, who was injured when Vino fell at Brighton Beach, is out of the hospital and will be back in the saddle, it is expected, within a fortnight. H. II. Hunu, who has been buying yearlings at the Shecpshead Bay sales, is the man who once owned the good horse Ferrier and was an amateur rider at the eastern tracks. Montgomery has got over the hurt he sustained at Saratoga and it is likely that he will be one of the starters in the Reapers Stakes tomorrow. Trainer Brown is pointing him for the Annual Champion, to be run a week from Saturday, and he is of the opinion that there is no horse in America capable of beating the son of Pessara two miles and a quarter.
