YOUNG NOT TO TRAIN ABROAD. Lexington, Ky., December 26. W. J. Young has decided to remain in America and take a chance with the horses he now has in training rather than dispose of them at a sacrifice to accept employment as trainer of one of the large stables in Germany. In the stable there is The Abbot winner of the Latonia Derby in 1007. Bonnie Bard, Darknight. Great Pirate. Moquette, Chelan. Direct. Plate Glass. Warfiehl and the following half-dozen coming two-year-olds: Chestnut colt, by Mesmerist Rciua. Brown colt, by Pirate of Penzance Mudlavia. Black colt, by Cesarion The Chough. Bay colt, by Cesarion Lateen. Chestnut filly, by Nasturtium Grace J. Bay filly, by Sempronius Frokcn. A petition to the officials of tho express companies and the trunk line railways, asking a modification of the rules covering the shipment of horses intended for racing, is being circulated for the signatures of breeders and turfmen. The shipping rules in the old days permitted the carrying of a man for each horse in a car, but about three years ago the companies adopted a rule forbidding more than one man to a car transporting sixteen horses unless full fare was paid for each additional man. Now the shippers are asking for the privilege of carrying at least three men to every car. irrespective of the number of horses. They point out the fact that one man is not sufficient to the safety and proper shipment of as many as sixteen horses or more, and they feel that it is an injustice to ask them to pay the extra fares. The matter mav finally be taken to the Interstate Railway Commission for adjustment. Joe Lindsay, of Winchester, has sold to Al Smltha the two-year-old bay colt, by Handsel Woodmont Belle, and the youngster has been placed in the hands of trainer Allen Steele at the Kentucky Association course.
