RECORD OF SPEEDY VOX P0PUXI. A Kcene cast-off that cut more than a respectable figure in Seattle racing last summer was the chestnut colt. Vox Populi. For Mr. Keene bo ran third to De Mund and Arclte lit the United States Hotel Stakes at Saratoga in 1000 and second to Fountain-blue in the Partridge Stakes at Sheepshead Bay. He was then sold to T. S. Childs for whom he won a purse at the Belmont Park fall meeting, defeating seventeen other maiden two-year-olds at three-quarters of a mile in 1 :1G over a heavy track. Taken to Oakland he won three purse races for Childs early in 10077 but bad forelegs militated against his further success. This year ho seemed to recover from his infirmities to such an extent that he was able to do some excellent racing and proved himself one of the fastest horses in training on tho coast. Among other notable displays of extreme speed by him at Seattle were winning at a mile in 1:375, and at a mile and fifty yards in 1:40L If he remains fit to race and retains his good Seattle form. Vox Populi should be a frequent winner over the California tracks next winter and a horse to be feared in any company. His record is as follows: Vox Populi. ch. c, 1904. by. Voter Dorset Flower.
