NOTES OF THE TURF. The Norfolk, Va., management is now "thinking of extending its meeting through the month of October, so popular has it become." At least, so the tracks press agent declares. Charles King, a member of the Metropolitan Turf Association, died Sunday at his home in Shceps-bead Bay. He had been one of the prominent layers of odds at all the eastern tracks this season. The poolrooms at Sausalito, Cal., across the bay from San Francisco, have gained a now lease of life by beating the antl-poolroom league in the courts. The league could not make good its claim that the rooms were a nuisance. lien Trovato. the colt which won Tuesdays third race at Latonia with odds of -40 to 1 about him, is afflicted with probably the worst case of string-halt ever seen in a thoroughbred and Reid was guyed unmercifully for sending to the races such a fright. J. B. Respess has horses to race, but as a Latonia stockholder he would be directly or indirectly interested in the field and combination books, which rule Kentucky State Racing Commissions, new rule prohibits. This is given as the "form" about the recent transfer of stock at Latonia. John Hynes, who lias been away from the races practically all this and last season, is reported as being much improved in health. He is the man who made the Sanford stable so formidable. Bad lungs banished him to a farm in the Adirondacks. His health has improved so much that he Is likely to get into business again right soon.
