I 1 1 i l s , : HILDRETH YEARLINGS ARE PROMISING Oakland, Cal., October lii, Trainer John Lowe has begun to give Ilildretlis yearlings lessons in the racing game. Some of the youngsters are on parade mornings, and are breezed an eighth of a mile in sets. They show they can run, as about all of them often breeze furlongs around twelve seconds. In fact, bangers-on about the track say that at least twenty of the juveniles can show an eighth in as good time as twelve seconds. Among the latest arrivals at the Oakland track are: J. M. Crane, from Vallejo, with the horses ISyronerdale, Nigrette, Gage Taylor, Billy Watkins, Billy Jlyer, Be Thankful, John II. Slieehan and two yearlings. A. I!. Iomeroy got in from Seattle with live head, as follows: Darthula, Adele Brooks, Charlotte B., San Ramon and Kismet, Jr. From Petaluma came Burleigh and Gypsy King, the property of John B. Smith. Matt lteese is in with Miss Officious, Kntre Xous, Dr. Coleman and Herives, and Phil Itiley brought Daruma, Alvin II., Pacilico, Banlada and Gorgalete. From Kenilworth Farm came W. W. Ferriss lot, headed by Vinton, AVaboo, Seasick, Itay Egan, Iteno Itebel and several yearlings. The other horses in the string are pretty shifty platers, as shown by the fact that they won something like thirty races during the summer. Finn has a more desirable acquisition to the local racing forces in jockey Heatherton. Ileatherton, who ranked second to E. Walsh at the Butte meeting, will probably prove to be one of the best lightweight riders at Oakland this winter. Jack Bonnets stable from Xew York, beaded by Flip Flap, is expected daily. Twelve stalls have been reserved for these horses. Paul Itaiuey has applied for stable accommodation for live horses at the Emeryville track. D. Kelly will bring ten horses from Xew York, and T. M. Cassidy will come witli Bight and True and one other horse. Blagg and the horses of the Lee stable are on the way. Blagg was the champion of the three-year-old division at the Butte summer meeting, where he was unbeaten, and numberejl among his victories several stakes, including the big feature of the meeting, the Independence Day handicap. Since the Butte meeting Blagg and the others of the stable have been turned out at Lees place, near St. Joseph, Mo., and, benefited by the rest, the crack three-j-ear-old will have to be reckoned with in the events for his age at the coming meeting. Incidentally, the younger Lee now controls these horses, and instead of being raced as heretofore in the name of J. T. Lee and Son, they will run as the property of L. O. Lee. Bookmaker John Troy has returned to his home in Alameda from Spokane, where he booked during the meeting. "I have worked at many a meeting," said Troy, "and I dont believe I ever saw a better one, from a bookmakers viewpoint. The attendance was very large, the turnstile count showing that 14,000 persons passed through the gale one day, and the betting was line. There were fourteen books in line and jointly they handled as high as .fSO.OOO in an afternoon."
