NOTES OF THE TURF. Danny Maher rode his one-hundredth winner Saturday. September 20. at Newbury, when he piloted Mr. Barclay Walkers Llangwm to victory in tho Kingsclere Stakes. Duke of Roanoke, bought by D. Stevenson for ,600 at the recent Whitney sale, will be turned over to William Hogan to be trained for lumping races. Hogan thinks Duke of Roanoke should do well at jumping as he is a half-brother to the famous jumper, Shillelah. R. E. Watkins has shipped his stahle. including Ida D.. Miss Delaney and Lad of Langden. to Texas to race on the circuit there. Ida D.. the fast filly by His Highness Carrie C. and a full-sister to Jean Bereaud. has won the last three times out and should prove a good acquisition to Texas racing. The price Sam Hildreth is reported to have paid for Angelus was nearly but not quite ,000. the exact sum not being made public. With Uncle. Mcelick. King James. Peter Oulnce. Angelus and Restigouche in his stable Hildreth will have the most formidable aggregation of four-year-olds ever campaigned in California by one owner. Sam Hildreth arrived In San Francisco a few days ago and spent last Monday in inspecting his horses quartered at Oakland. He was well pleased, at the improvement in appearance shown hv Uncle. Meelick and the other horses after their long rest. Uncle has not raced in a year and many of the others have not raced since June, when they left New York. The experiment of campaigning Ben Ban In France as a hurdlo racer will be viewed with interest on this side of the water. Here his chief successes have been achieved at sprinting distances with light weight up. There he will have to change completely In taking up high weights and covering long distances. He is a perfectly sound horse and may be able to do it triumphantly. His speed is beyond controversy. It is said that Mediant. Spectatrpss and two yearlings will accompany- Ben Ban to France, but are probably deBtlned for racing in England,
