They are for sale and it is his Intention to keep them going right along so that any purchaser will have little left to do in order to bring them to the post postJohn John E Madden the noted Kentucky horseman also is in town He said that he had 300 thorough ¬ breds now at his Hamburg Place farm many oi them for sale but that he would dispose of them themJune June will be a busy month for the steeplechasers hereabouts In fact the revival of racing will see this picturesque end of the siwrt occupying a prom ¬ inent place on almost every program At Belmont Park it has been promised that there will be at least one steeplechase each day and during the tenure of that meeting sport for the jumpers will be offered in addition at Piping Rock and Brookline where they will have numerous opportunities opportunitiesWhile While this would appear to be rather crowding the junipers it will be found that an unusually large number have been put to the field since the closing of the big tracks in 191Q and they have been going along at the hunt meetings ever since that time Recent additions to the membership list of the National Steeplechase and Ilunt Association hnrf brought a lot of new young blood into the organiza ¬ tion A majority of these new members are own crs and amateur riders and can be depended upon to take an active part in actual racing as well us in the affairs of the association associationElaborate Elaborate preparation is going forward for tiie Armv Day program that is to Iw one of the fea tnres of the racing revival at Belmont Park The races that day will include a handicap on the Hat exclusively for army horses to be ridden by officers tho Amateur Cup and a steeplechase in which of licers and other amateurs will have the mounts The iwpularity of the races in which army officers figure both as riders and owners has been well attested at both the big tracks and at the smaller hunt meetings Many of them have on frequent occasions demonstrated an ability to hold their own among the best of the amateurs and that branch of the sport has the hearthy sup ort and cooperation of the heads of the army and navy departments departmentsThe The Astoria Dinner Stakes will have a piece of plate valued at 500 It is expected that the money to be competed for during the Belmont Park meeting of eighteen days will average more than 4000 a day dayWhen When the Piping Rock Association established itrf magnificent new course in Locust Valley L I it was realized that the sportsmen composing the club had added another and a beautiful racing property to tho circuit of the amateurs Ever since its es ¬ tablishment there have been additions and improve ¬ ments Now there is to be an elaborate training ground on the Herbert J Pratt estatp that adjoins the Piping Rock property The colony that sur ¬ rounds tho grounds of the club is a horsy one and it is impossible to find a more picturesque country over which to indulge in this favorite sport Sev ¬ eral of the members live at such a distance from the track proper that it was thought desirable to have a training ground within easy access where the horses could be comfortably housed and pre ¬ pared for the races racesMr Mr Pratt himself an ardent sportsman and one of the subscribers to the Yearling Fund whereby fifty thoroughbreds were purchased to be raced this year liberally invited the location of this training track on his property As a result a sixfurlong track has been constructed and already a number of horses are being fitted there thereThe The subscription idea was such a tremendous suc ¬ cess when it was first applied in the purchase of polo ponies last year and the subsequent purchase of the thoroughbred yearlings that it was in a measure applied to the training grounds A num lior of the siKirtsmen who will race over the Piping Rock course subscribed for tho establishment of tho track and boxes on the Pratt property that was dedicated to the purpose and already there are seventeen roomy box stalls that have been taken by tills plan planThis This training ground is constructed along the most modern ideas The stalls are roomy and tight and an overhanging roof affords a grateful protection from rain when it is found necessary to keep the horses off the track bv reason of weather conditions and still havo them out in moderate exercise exerciseThe The track itself is of ample width for training purposes and in fact could be used for racing The turns are nicely thrown up and it is easily iwssible to send a horse along as fast as he cares to run with perfect safety safetyAt At Piping Rock itself there has been constructed a big stable for tho accommodation of horses that take part In tho race meetings there but to train horcos over the course itself would have a tendency to damage the turf With the quarters on the Pratt estate within such each reach the horses may l o tightened up to any degree of fitness and be within easy walking distance of the course proper properFor For previous meetings of the Piping Rock Asso ¬ ciation the horses have had to train at Belmont Park or even further from the grounds This new training track is just another evidence of the thor ¬ ough manner in which the gentlemen of Locust Val ¬ ley have gone in for the sixirt and their meetings are now easily the most notable of such events in this country It is indeed The Goodwood of America
