Lady Goodrich, St. Vol ma and Wooima. Volma is now at the Cart farm with a bandaoase suckling by He-Gee. The only yearling owned by Messrs. ipplegate and Yanke is the lillv by Wo dsthorpe. out of Volma that Is now being broken at tin- Kentucky Jlaanr la tloa track by John Rodegap. Colonel Appl gate say-- be has not made un his mind whether or not he will buy any yearlings this fall. "It will depend altogether upon the state of the market." lie said. "If I see anything that • oks like a bargain to me 111 probably make .1 bid. The buying of young thoroughbreds js very much a lottery, but I have no kick coming on the last flyer I look. In the fall of tMg 1 bought eighteen Weanlings, expecting that I would hold them until they were yearlings and then sell them at a profit, bat things did not hn k just right for celling in the spring of IPfSJ and I decided to have them trained. Out of that lot came Hound tile World, Swish. Big Claim. Incision and King Leopold. Next to Round the World I consider King Lonpoid the l.est horse wc own. lie is going to make a first-class three-year-old in my opinion. Frog, the two-year-old out of Volma. did not do we]] this year, but he is the making of a good three-year-old and I expeet him to give a good account of himself next season." Turning to the subject of fall racing. Colonel Applegate said: "In my conversations with the people alma! here this week I find them generally optimistic and that augurs well lor successful rac Imr, Moaay, 1 And, is a little tight here, ehielly because of the holding of so lunch tobacco in pool. The conditions elsewhere are such, however, that I look for the best attended fail meetings that have ever been given at Lexington, Louisville and Lalonla."
