PHIL FINCH -CARTHAGE EXCHANGE. 4 There is often a strong eastern disposition to consider it old Phil Finchs day and time when he starts. Phil Finch has come to be regarded by many speculators as a horse that just must win sometime, and so they keep plugging away at him. Enough .money has been lost on him to buy him twenty times over. The only reasons for it all are that he was once like Red Friar a good horse and is still in action. Nowadays his admirers are in the mood to wait for him at Xew Orleans. As a matter of fact, Phil Finch has been a tough proposition In a racing way to both his owner and the public since he was bid up and taken from Captain Jim Williams at l.atonia. Williams retaliated by claiming Carthago from-J,--li;--Ke!pess and got by far the best of the enforced change. Since it Phil Finch has run eleven races with this record in a financial way: Horse. Sts. 1st. 2d. 3d. Unp. Won. Phil Finch 11 0 1 5 5 1907.sh00 The speculative disaster about the old horse, would, if put into figures, make or break a bank. On the other hand since Captain Williams got Carthage just now laid up- for a well-earned freshening he has made this sort of a racing exhibit: Horse. Sts. 1st. 2d. 3d. Unp. Won. Carthage 14 0 4 0 4 ,4S0
