NOTES OF THE TURF. Uncle pulled tip so lame after a recent work-out at Santa Anita Park that there is little hope of sending him to the post until next year. The crack racers of the extensive racing establishment of K. C. Hildrcth have won over .00O since, the opening of the Oakland meeting. .Tockevs Groth and C. Miller have both bepn in-detinitelv suspended by the officials at Oakland, the former for incompetent handling of Ocean Shore in a recent race and the latter for incompetency at the post. Handicapper Martin Nathansons health, which has boon a source of worry to his many friends on the coast, lias improved considerably, and he is abie to fulfill his duties in the stand as well as those of handicapper and programmer. T. O. Webbers Anna !May has won more races than any other horse racing at Oakland since the opening of the meeting there, having six wins and three seconds out of nine starts to her credit, anu has earned the sum of ,140. Jockey Walter Miller is counting on a Eiuonean engagement for next summer, now that he is buck to his good form-. He probably will go io England, where the high scale of weights will permit him to ride for an indefinite period. .Miller is able to do no less than 112 pounds. W. Covingtonr hs lieen engaged by "Lucky" Baldwin to train one of the divisions of his big stable. Jim Devlin, who resigned the position, has- put the horses in good trim, and Covington probably will be able to get some, results shortly. The change was made agreeably to all parties concerned.
