NOTES PF.THE TURF. There is a letter at -this- office for Mr." Percy Taylor. Trainer Phillips says Missouri Lad was so badly cut In several places during the running of the fifth race at Jamaica Friday, that he will hardly go to the post again in the east. J. Smith, former trainer for J. L. Holland, has taken ihe position recently resigned by Dan T. Winslow as trainer for C." " Kraus. Winslow has not made any new arrangements as yet. Matt Byrnes will train a part of the racing stable of Paul J. Rainey next year and the horses ho will handle have already been tdrned over to him. They are Ginette, Computer, Sir Wilfred and the yearling half-brother to De Mund. Jack Atkin has developed a sour and mean disposition and if trainer Brandt does not overcome a tendency on the part of the handsome son of Salu to shrink back as the barrier is sprung, the big horse will not win many more races this year. John A. Drake is at a loss to know what to do with his jockey, Garner. The boy is a native of Mr. Drakes home town in Iowa, and was brought! out by him and he naturally thinks a. lot of the boy, but can do nothing with him. "I am willing to let him go with a lirst-chiss stable," says Mr. Drake, "but I will not let him have his contract .or go with a stable that is not a good one."
