Nearly Half Over, Conies Up to Expectations of the Management — News and Gossip from Mexican Course. Ill Paso. Tex.. January IS. -With the ■ initial " the Jockey Club Juarez nearly half over, the ever-baereaaiag popularity of racing as conducted here is attested by generous attendance, a large voluim» of speculation in the liotting ring and liberality on the part of the horsemen in tilling the races. In a d i.v or two the track will lie in the pink of condition and troiii now on the better class of thoroughbreds will be seen in action more frequently than in the past, aa Weather conditions have settled and are now moro favorable than hitherto during the winter. In spito of the unexpected interruptions resulting fioin the extraordinarily severe weather thai has been expert-raced here this winter, the meeting has come up to the expectations of the management in its various aspects. Only one lone favorite scored this afternoon, but the other five winners received heavy support anil the layers repotted losses on the days transac 1 ion-. Manganese, after changing owners this morning. won for his new owners. Heath tt Ambrose, at the first asking. The same concern also bought the two year-old Othello. Manganese was led to the eighth post in the stretch by Hyki. and when Hoffman brought him alongside Hyki. he swerved and bumped into him. Jockey Kiraehbaam claimed foul. but the stewards would not allow it. as the inter fcrence was unintentional and trifling. The rest of the races were well contested, but the track wis quite slow. The following horses wire sold today by J. O. and j. II. Keene: Kamchatka. F. W. Doss. 00. Pampinea. I-. W. Doss. Ss."i ». Bestaate, Bay GIMoa, 1913.sh00. Bara vea. S. R. iiouser. *. J. P.

Newman lias since lieen compelled to blister him severely and throw him out of training. The gelding ha- b en sore from osselets all winter and after hi- last winning face was decidedly lame. He improved, however, and was raced again. The Newman stable may In- represented by a small string on the Kentucky tracks next spring. If Closers recent treatment brings him around. M is one that will go. and Fan Zareta is another. The latter filly is a Kentucky Oaks eligible and h-r trainer thinks her chat s are good. Closer was in Kentucky when a two year old, Mose Newman Cik ing him there with the then three year-old Undo Ben. The campaign was not a success, as botfi horses had a spell of sickness and neither were at their best while in the blue grnss region. J. W. Forinan is having his troubles with the J. II.

This veteran is evidently getting track sore and the time has nearly come for his retirement to the stud. Banly has won a race for Mr. Firman, but usually -ulk- when the colors ate up and will run only in -ixits. John Louis has been the standby for" the Mead stable at thi- meoiiiig. While he has lieon beaten several times, the son of Ben Bramble has raced well when he got a good rate. Both owner Mead and trainer Parana think they will soon be able to bring Salali hack to the races again. Salali is showing improvement, after Inning been sick for considerable t me. Mock ler is training well again for J. C. Calm at the Juarez course, and he expects the son of Sain to do some effective racing lure next month. Mr. Calm recently has had bad luck wilh his shlftv four year obi Sleeth. This horse recently spread both his front feet so badly that he ha- been thrown entirely out of training and there is little chalice of racing him at all here this winter. Sbadraeh, which won a two year old race here for the Texa- breeder F. T. Wood, is the third two year old winner produced by tlinah Wood by different sin-.

The youngster finished resolutely in hi-raeea and plainly showed that when the distances lengthen out here he will handily dis|Mise of the Texas-bred yoiing-iers that have been outrunning him for three ruriaatrM. This Kentucky trainer has not sent his old cripple Boca Grande to the post as yet. He carded him ii: a race recent ly, bill scratched him. as he though! the company a little too good. The -in of Bemproaius is training well and can be expected lo run some fairly goad races acre this winter. There is little chance that he will again shine as a -tar. however. William St. Vincent has received word from Culi- e p . J , in j heat is to let him trot around a ring in front of fomia that his mare Keep Moving, by Yankee — l-i Polka, by Lissak. will soon drop her first foal. The noted winner of the Filly. Matron and other stakes was mated last spring to J. F. Crowley, a -en of Ossary. one of the California-bred sons of the o,000 Triple Crown winner, the unbeaten Ormonde. The "good things put over recently have hit the layers hard. Many of the large operators have heea unusually successful in their operations. The hoi -es of J. Schreiber and W. E. Applegate have won with a frequency that has made it exceedingly profitable lo these owners, especially as they are prone to wager heavily when the occasion warrants.
