I I . HERMAN RADTKES MIDGET BROTHER. San Francisco. Cal.. September 2S. G. H. Keene ban departed on a flying trip to his home in Kentucky to attend to pressing business matters. He will return to the coast with as little delay .as possible and with him will come Raconteur ami a yearling by Gold Heels that Jack Keene bought at New York last summer and shipped to the Keene farm in Kentucky. Little "nelne" Radtke. ilie Chicago hoy. of whom the Keenes expect to make a hrst-class jockey, will hardly have a chance U ride here during the winter, unless he grows faster than during the year that he has been exercising for the Keene stable. The lad is still so much of a midget that it probably will be deemed unwise to let him do any race riding, ne gives every promise in his exercise work of becoming a skillful jockey ami the Keenes will give him a chance as sxjii as it seems advisable. His brother, Herman, who was developed by Jack Keene. will return soon to America after a successful season in the saddle in Russia. Radtke is too heavy to ride at the weights in vogue in this country, but bo is planning to come to the coast upon bis return from abroad so that he may enjoy himself during the winter at the California tracks. It is likely that he will return to Russia In the spring. Dave Leary and John Lowe, of the Illldreth establishment, are at Oakland. Uncle. Moeliek and other stars of the Hildreth string show the benelit of a rest they were given at Seattle after shipment from New York. Leary will bring nineteen Hildreth horses from Brentwood at once. They have been turned out there all summer. Dr. T. S. hilds probably will ship the crack Vox Ponuli from Seattle to Arcadia as a result of inability to obtain stalls at the Emeryville track for his entire string. It is understrnxl that the Emeryville ollicials were willing to give Childs a stall for Vox Popnli only. As King of the Mist showed good form toward the close of the Seattle meeting. Childs felt thnt he would have no trouble procuring a stall for him, and be was anxious also to obtain accommodations for a couple of horses that his trainer is handling. Vox Popnli showed such marked Improvement at Seattle that he came to be regarded as one of the topnotchcrs of the all-aged handicap division. Dr. Childs has raced at Emeryville for two seasons.
