NOTES OF THE TURF. Trance is again going soundly and is likely to start before the Aqueduct meeting closes. By winning a race at Chester yesterday afternoon, Danny Malier, the American jockey, scored his thousandth success on the English turf. R. J. Mackenzie and W. L. McCracken are among the nominators for the Ladies Plate, which will be run in connection with the Winnipeg exhibition. Maskette is in much better condition this spring than she was a year ago, and she has shown more than any other Metropolitan eligible in the Keene establishment. Algernon Daingerfield has been substituting as steward at Aqueduct for F. R. Hitchcock, who has been spending some time at Albany in connection with the pending racing legislation. S. C. Hildreth has nominated King James and others of his horses for various stakes at Toronto. King James has been named for the Toronto Cup, which he won last year in gallant fashion. "Skeets" Garner, elder brother of Guy Garner, who is riding successfully this season for Earl Lin-nell and the Newcastle Stable, is galloping horses for Enoch Wishard, trainer for John A. Drake, at Sheepshead Bay. Ballot, the Suburban winner of 1908, will probably lie ready for his engagements at Sheepshead Bay. He is training soundly, and he will probably bear MM Keene colors in another Suburban, perhaps against the doughty Fitz Herbert, winner of the Suburban of 1909. A little while back fear was expressed in some quarters that King James, winner of the Metropolitan and Brooklyn handicaps last season, might not train this year. But today no horse at Sheepshead Bay is galloping more satisfactorily than the lop-eared son of Plaudit and Unsightly. At the annual election of officers for the Sheepshead Bay Board of Trade, held this week, there was a unanimous sentiment for a continuation of the liberal policies that have been of such great value to the village in other years. All the newly-elected officials are friends of the turf and President Doughertys opponent for head of the board, who was op-IMsed to racing, was snowed under. Jacob Pincus. the veteran horseman who saddled Iroquois for the late Pierre Lorillard in the English Derby of 1881, is doing some training for J. B. Hag-gin in the east. He saddled Telegram at Aqueduct Monday. Telegram is a brown colt by Star Ruby, out of Crisis, and is one of the yearlings Mr. Hag-gin sent to England last year. He was brought back with ten or eleven others because the Englisn market was not profitable.
