ENOLIA WAS A "RINGER" AT NORFOLK. Real Mare at the Missouri Farm Where She Was Foaled. Evidently the mare known as Euolia, which was slopped as a "ringer" at the Jamestown Va. track, Tuesday, October 1, was not Euolia, as the following letter to Daily Pacing Form from J. F. Keith, cashier of the Citizens National Bank of Sturgeon, Mo., shows: Sturgeon, Mo., October G, 1907. I have just been handed a clipping from your paper regarding a suspected "ringer" at Norfolk last Tuesday, which raced as Euolia, a three-year-old bay filly by Dr. Cave out of Maccadle. She has no brands. No white except a feSr white hairs in face above nose, and black legs. She is In the pasture where she was foaled. I had her at New-Orleans In charge of Thomas Miles during the spring of 190G, and later I turned her over to W. W. Benson, who went to Latonia with some other horses I had. He did no good, and I have not heard from him for riiontbs. I heard from a friend who says Benson left Latonia early In the spring with some horses. I would be pleased to have you assist in straightening this out and discover the identity of the guilty ones. If I can be of any help I will gladly assist. J. F. Keith, The real Enolia, being in her pasture at Sturgeon, Mo., makes itjCertaln that tlie Euolia which raced at Jamestown was another mare and a "ringer." Unfortunately, the parties owning tlie Jamestown marc were allowed to take her away, and their present whereabouts are unknown. Benson does not appear as one of" the parties who raced the false Enolia. Their napies were given as A. 15. Bcntley and J. M. Willis, racing as Willis and Company, witli P. Fant tlie trainer, and they were ruled off by tlie Jamestown officials. The officials are said to have suspected Kenneth and Heffron of St. Louis, .Mo., of owning the Enolia they stopped. The mare should easily be identified by the branded -10 under the mane.
