STABLE MATES FOR FRANK GILL. New York, December 27. J. L. McGinnis has eight yearlings at Gravesend, four colts and four fillies. The majority of these coming two-year-olds have been well tried and look as though they would turn out well next year. The list is as follows: Faultless, for. f, by Kingston Clemence. Gus Helm, b. c, by Goldcrest Grace Lee. Mariuccia, for. f, by Star Ruby Strathleaf. Motor Girl, b. f, by Ben Strome Lady Minting. O. U. Kid, ch. c, by Watercolor Oyespa. Smile On, b. f, by St. Gatien Starlet. Spell Bound, for. c, by Albert Hoodoo. Submit, b. c, by Ben Strome Masha. The Watercolor Oyespa colt shows quality and good size, shoulders arc very strongly muscled and he shows great depth through the girth. This colt has been very highly tried. Gus Helm is a full-brother to Lee Crest and is put up on good lines all over, especially "from withers to tail. He has turned a quarter in twenty-four seconds. Submit has a good short head, well-turned neck set in a heavy shoulder. He is very taking to the eye and should come to hand early. The Albert Hoodoo colt, Spell Bound, has all the Albert speed lines and surely ought to race well. He worked a quarter in less than twenty-four seconds at Gravesend track. . The Star Ruby filly is not so large as Faultless, but her conformation is of the best!. The other fillies are speedy looking and the entire lot has been as well tried as anything over the Gravesend track. Masque looks like the star of the older division and should bo up to stake form. He has thickened out and spread "a great deal of late. He was fired recently by Dr. McCully for a splint which bothered him a great deal last summer. Troublesome will make a fairly useful plater, as he showed considerable speed at times.
