Pagan Bey and Dunvalio. are exercised daily at Sheepshead Bay by driving to sulky and seem to like it. James Devlin, who is now one of the regulars at Santa Anita Park, says he is going to get together a string Uimsell before the season is over. Walter O. Parmer intends to make a tour of the West Indies after disposing of some business matters which will require his attention at New Orleans for the next few days.
