NOTES OF THE TURF. The first foal of the season at Valley Farm Stud is a chestnut filly by Martiuias — Noblec. It is re|K rted that H. W. Hoag has purchase the contract on jockey Heatherton for ,500. Louis V. Bell has announced that he will go to Japan and possibly take up his permanent residence at Tokio. says a New York newspaper. It is said that S. C. llildreth will rely upon Mee lick to win the California Derby and will probably not send Uncle to the post. He is not hurrying the preparation of the latter, while Meelick is said to be ready now. The leaders iu the Kentucky legislature in opposition to the passage of the several bills affecting the State Racing Commission and the turf in that state are Senator J. P. Chinn and Representative Anderson, proprietor of the Teas Over Stud. The bill introduced in the New York legislature by Assemblyman Hart, of Oneida county, to annually set aside .50,000 for the support of the county l.ilrs, is said by its opponents to be un-coustitutioual. iu that one legislature cannot legislate for a succeeding one. It is the consensus of opinion among Oakland horsemen that Goldblatt would have won the Oaks with Keep Moving if the- filly had been shipped to California a week earlier than she was and put in hard training at Santa Anita or Tanforan for a week before the race.
