W. H. FIZER STABLE IS FORMIDABLE. Four of the New Orleans Stake Events Are Landed Reasons For It. New Orleans,, La., December 19. Some of the owners here are beginning to wonder when W. II. Fizer, the Kentucky horseman, will get to the end tt bis etb.ee in the WU9f Qf JYiWn? tfc? local stake events. Up to last Monday, six stakes and handicaps had been decided. Of these Fizer captured four, the Test Stakes at City Park with Pinkola, the Cypress Handicap at City Park with Plantland, the Inaugural Handicap at the Fair Grounds with Pinkola, and the Crescent City Stakes at the Fair Grounds with Al Muller. The two events that got away from Fizer wore the Initial Handicap at City Park won by Keator, in which his Plantland was second and the Thanksgiving Handicap, won by Little Lighter, in which Plant-land also earned second money. The stable has unquestionably developed a strength that was .altogether unexpected at the close of the Latonia fall meeting. It is also plainly evident that unless the horses go off, or meet with accidents, the stable will be a decided factor in the important events to be run throughout the entire winter season. But at that it has been in Fizers favor that his horses were here two weeks or more before the season began. They had a chance to get rested up a bit after the railroad trip from Cincinnati, whereas most of the eastern division shipped here directly after the close of the Benning meeting. They were delayed In transit, many of them taken ill, and they are only just now beginning to get Into racing fettle. There is every reason to believe, therefore, that from now on Fizer, will not have matters quite so much his own way. He will be hooking up with such performers as Juggler, Tileing, Keator, Glori-fier, Chapultepec, Bellwether, etc. and very likely there will be a different story to tell. But putting aside past contingencies and future possibilities it is only fair to admit that something besides luck must be perching upon the Fizer banner. The chief owner and trainer of the stable deserves credit for keen ability in the conditioning and the handling of horses as well as for shrewd judgment in the placing of them.
