BREAKING OF YEARLINGS BEGINS. Lexington, Ky.. July 23. — The breaking of yearlings at the Kentucky Association track was begun this week. The first to come In were twenty-six from Johnson N. Camdens Hartlami Stud. They are in charge of William Overton, the colored trainer, and when they are broken they will be taraed over to John O. Keeiie. who has a half interest in them and who will race them in Mr. Camdens colors next season. These youngsters were included in the deal that V.i: Camden made with .Mr. Kecne upon the hitters return from California last spring. Taey are for the greater part by Malagas and are probably the best -appearing collection of young horses that the Hartmad S I lid has yet turned out. Messrs. Camden and Keene are expecting them to show up well in racing. When they were forming their partnership last spring Mr. Keene said to Mr. Camden: "I cannot say that 1 have a particular fancy for any of your older horses, and it is my opinion that we w ill be exceedingly lucky to pay the shipping bills with them this year, but those yearlings are a grand lot anil unless Ive gone back in my judgment of thor-oaghbreda theyll reimburse us for any losses that BUT be sustained In 1f 10." S. K. Hughes lias taken up half a dozen youngsters and W. J. Young has had four come in. John Binle-gap has up live or six and other trainers are making preparations to take up a number shoal August 1. Ordinarily they do not begin breaking yearlings here as early as July, but this year an unusual niiin-lier of trainers are summering at homo beeaasa of the curtailment of racing. A Hamper of the older horses now at the local track will particip«te»in the racing programmed at several of the fairs to be held In Kentucky during the months of August and Sep-I ember. The purses are small, but the trainers regard them as just so much picked tip. Every little hit helps nowadays.
