Fizer at New Orleans, the horseman now training seven other horses at the Crescent City track for Woodford, one of which is Pinkola. Pink Star has been gelded since he last raced, and left Kentucky in prime condition. Pinkola is not engaged in the Kentucky Derby, much to Woodfords regret. Woodford now lias only five yearlings in training. Three are by Pink Coat, the sire of Pink Star and Pinkola. The latter brilliant performer is not a "figure horse" on either his sire or his dams side. Pink Coat comes from the line that produced Aerolite, Spendthrifts dam, while Pinkolas dam, Wyola, Is a member of the Picayune family. C. W. Moores fast mare, Golden Glitter, is at last surely in foal to Perry Belmonts great horse, Ethelhert. Moore will replace Ingoldsby at Mere Hill Stud whenever lie sees a chance to purchase the right kind of a horse. He now has thirty-one mares, most too many to rely on for service of outside stallions. Boxer will not come to Kentucky to winter, as his owner, W. Showalter, first contemplated, the Georgetown breeder having concluded to let the gelding remain at Sheepshead Bay in charge of trainer Frank Frlsbie, who will race the son of Box for Showalter again next season. W. J. Young, whose stable is now quartered here, will ship his Latonia Derby winner, The Abbot, and twenty-one other horses now in his stable to Memphis, Tenn., to winter. Young has a Derby horse this year in the colt Great Pirate, which won six races last season. Lncasta, the banner broodmare of 1907 as a1 pro-ducer of race winners for this one season, was sold hete in the fall of 1900 by the executors- of the estate of the late C. F. McMeekim for 50. The mare has out five winners this season in Fonsoluca, Wartq Nlcht, Foncasta, Parvo and Kinders. The first three are by Fonso, while the latter two are by Woolsthorpe. It is claimed Lucastas mark of five race winners in one season is the record. Marechal Neil, n. H. Stanhopes full-sister to Richard Crokers Rhoda B., the dam of the Epsom Derby winner, Orby, and Rhodora, -was not bred last spring. She foaled April 20, but before Stanhope got word his booking of her to the French horse Adam had been accepted, it was then far into May and as a consequence the mare was not bred at all last year. Her weanling colt by Watercress is looked upon by horsemen as likely to outsell any yearling put up at public sale next summer.
