GOSSIP FROM KENTUCKY SOURCES. Louisville. Ky.. July 2.!. — W. E. Bidwell. secretary of the Kentucky State Racing Commission, reports that jockey 1 . Halls license has lieen revoked by that bony owing to a suspension hanging over him due to a ruling made on a California track of which the commission was ignorant when it issued him the j breast under which lie rode at Latonia. Last Saturday at Ixxington the commission, having come into evidence of Halls turf standing in California, ordered tbe riders Ucense revoked until he is again in good standing with the California Jockey Club. Secretary Bidwell has notified the Canadian tracks of the commissions action in the case of Hall. The Jockey is supposed to have gone north when Latonia dosed. G. W. J. Bissell. over whose stalde trainer Wayne Lewis presides, will ship to Mexico this year wneu fall racing in Kentucky ceases. Mr. Bisseil probably will buy several yearling colts to add to bis string now in charge of trainer Lewis at the local track. He lias only four of his own breeding and they are all fillies by an untried bone. II. P. Headley iias a .Marling by Ornament that the Pittsburg turfman and his Iraine;- think will make a useful colt, but the Kentucky breeder wants ,500 for the youngster, which they consider a bit high. A turfman from Lexington brings the information that J. N. Camden has sent all his yearlings to the Kentucky Association track to be broken, and that the colored trainer. Will Overton, now has the big bunch in Charge. There are thirty colts and fillies in the collection and breeder Camilcu regards them as the best band he has yet raised at I lart land Stud. Some of them will be sold during the coming fall, but enough will be retained to make the two year old divisi f Mr. Camdens stable in 1911 the most pretentious he has yet sent to the races. Mr. Caiu-aea lias set his heart on winning a Breeders Futurity with one of his Hart land Stud bred youngsters. Reports from Tennessee are to tbe effect that Jockey George Glaaner, who laid unconscious for so long in tlie Covington hospital, after Tritoma fell at Latonia with him. lias improved greatly physically, but thai his mind is sadly impaired. Tlie Information is in the effect that Glasner will never ride an other race. He is said to Ik- well fixed financially, a fact that his most intimate friends were not aware of. He seems to have had a prosperous season last winter in Florida. Harry air. who acted last winter as track suimt-iatendeal at Juarez, Mexico, is very sick at bis homo near Churchill Downs with lung trouble and I. is condition is giving his friends BMKb concern. Trainer Will Crater has reached Churchill Downs from Latonia with Lexotuif and Robert PoweB. Tlie latter has completely recovered from his fall during the recent l.atoni: eting and Grater lias him tak bag slow work right now. while Lexoliue never looked better. Mr. Grater expects to shortly buv a couple of yearling colts. Walter Crater has written his brother that be will shin Golden Egg from Lexington to Saratoga next week. Tlie racing stable of tbe Louisville turfman, W. V. Sclutlte. which has been in the east since tlie Aqueduct meeting opened last spring, will return we-t lor tiie fall meeting at Churchill Downs. Trainer Brooks is likely, it is understood, to ship to Churchill Downs at tlie conclusion of the Empire City meeting and rest until tlie next fall racing here. Instead of going on to Saratoga when Empire City closes, eliding Belle was some time ago blistered for a bowed tendon in her left foreleg, but th-. Injury seems to have readily yielded to the veterinarians Ire at HH III, as she won a race at Empire City a few days ago. King Olympian is anoth.-r member of the stable that was for a while on the ailing list, due to a weak middle tendon, but lie. loo, is now training satisfactorily. This wili likely be gieaapS last season OB the turf. Mr. Schtiltc will probably select for lief first mate in tlie stud Sir Iluon, George J. Longs brilliant Kentucky Derby winner. When trainer Brooks reaches here he will take up the yearlings owned by Mr. Sclutlte and break them at the loeal track. From all accounts they are it promisiug bunch of youngsters.
