1 1 : 1 - c s i 1 r t , - n " V L t ii 0 1 ii e GOSSIP FROM KENTUCKY SOURCES. Louisville. Ky., October 17. Amos Turncy will ship his entire string now at Churchill Downs to La; tenia and upon his arrival there four yearlings recently purchased at private sale will join his stable. The horses he will send to Latonia embrace his three eligibles for the ,000 Latonia Autumn Inaugural Handicap, namely, Horron. Kleburne and Flabber- gast. He likely will have two starters in that rich event. Others in the string are Crisco. Glint. Knight Deck, Bustling Brass, AVaterbass, Bolala and Wau-; seon. The racing strings of John W. Schorr and George M. Hendrie will be represented at Latonia with only the members of these stables that arc in racing condition, while the remainder of their horses will lay iil at Douglas Park until fall racing in Kentucky is over. Traiiier John Walters probably will winter his stable in Tennessee and come to Douglas Park early next spring, while Mr. Schorr now has an idea of sending ids string to winter at Memphis, James Butler has been forced to forego his re- turn trip to this city from Lexington on account of business engagements, and will go east from the lat-r ter city without returning to Churchill Downs. His big stable of horses now in charge of trainer B. C. Benson he reports arc doing well at the farm, but he will not know until his return to New York how soon the division Benson will take to Juarez will leave for the Mexican track. His colors will be well rep-r resented at Juarez, especially in tlie two-year-old events of 1914. Trainer John Hoffman has at last succeeded in col- lecting the money diip him from the Mineral Springs track at Porter. Ind., which account he brought suit for altont a year ago. He won his suit and now the track management has settled his claim in full. The account was for the winnings of his stable during the first meeting held at that course, which was stopped by Governor Marshall of Indiana. M. B. Gruber has arranged with Secretary Lyman II. Davis of tlie New Louisville Jockey Club to have stable quarters for Little Nephew and his other horses at Churchill Downs the coming winter with the privilege of letting his horses run out in a lot which Is fenced off at the track. His coming two- year-olds, both by McGee, have been named. The Gunrod colt is Sam McMeekin. while the youngster out of Interview will be registered under the name of Little String. Both are grand prospects and will be entered in all the important two-year-old . : . ; . : i i 1 - f . ; 1 stakes of 1914. Both are eligible to the Keneucky Breeders Futurity at Lexington next spring. Trainer Elza Brown, who has charge of Grubers stable, will take only Yankee Tree to Latonia this fall. The other members of tlie stable will remain here. "Tex" Foreman has the two yearlings he is training for AA. F. Knebelkamp lookln" well, aud these youngsters by High Order, namely AVathen and Lrinargarde, are both exceedingly bright racing prospects. They have nn abundance of size and appear to possess quality. Free Lance, George J. Longs Latonia Derby winner of 1912. is now doing as well as trainer Pete Coyne could desire and is in good shape to turn out for the winter at Bashford Manor Farm; Trainer Coyne probably will send the son of Sem-pronius to the Long farm before he ships the racing stable to Latonia on Sunday. Several veterinarians who have examined Free Lance lately unite in the opinion that the great colt will stand training next season and they have advised Mr. Long not to think about sending him to the stud until he is given another trial next year. Maria C, which ran unplaced in the first race Wednesday, was clniraed from B. F. Guthrie by AV. F. Knebelkamp for ,005.
