MANY HORSES AT JUAREZ. Stables at Mexican Course Already Shelter Some 800 Racers and There Will Be More. EI Paso, Tex., December 13. At present, by actual count, 793 horses are quartered at the Jockey Club Juarez course. There are booked to arrive here within the next ten days or so some 50 or more horses, so that by the last of this month it is safe to predict that there will not be less than S50 horses within the Juarez track enclosure. Of the 793 horses now at this course, only 87 are yearlings. This list of youngsters will shortly be increased to at least 130, as most of the horses booked to come, are of this age. The stables with yearlings now at the course are as follows: J. Livingston, 10: F. D. Weir, 13; J. W. Fuller, 4; W. C. Clancy, 1; J. J. Ferguson, 1; J. C. Ferris, 1; W. H. Fizer, 1; G. L. Blackford, 7; H. McDaniel, G; Wade McLcmore, 3; Kay Speace, 1; J. B. Respess. 2; W. E. Phillips, 1; B. A. Jones, 3; Lon Gray, 4; 1. E. Clark, 5; S. Veiller, 2; Di J. F. Keith, 4; E. J. OConnell, 2; W. E. Cotton, 1; H. T. Batcheler, 1; E. J. Salt, 2; J. H. Mead, 2; Fitzgerald and Miller, 2; Milliner and Peoples, 2; J. Quinlan, 1; A. W. Hoots, 1; J. D. Clayton, 2; C. G. Sell. 1: C. Woodford, 3: Mrs. M. It. Fanner, 2; Allen and Hensley, 1; A. G. Dunlap, 1; G. M. Van Gordon, 3, and James Butler, 11. With the yearlings yet to arrive by the time the first two-year-old race of the 1914 season is run on New Years Day, there will be more youngsters quartered at the Juarez course than ever before in the history of the track. It may also be noted that if looks, breeding and promise count, there will be-more than one like Hawthorn and Old Rosebud among the two-year-old developments at the Juarez track this winter. The total number of horses of all ages now here tops all records iu the history of this track and insures full fields in a majority of the races during the present meeting of 100 days or more. Tlie three yearlings that George M. Van Gordon has brought to the Juarez course to race in the two-year-old dashes after the first of the coming January have all been named. He calls the chestnut gelding by General Roberts Rose Cherry, by Rubicon, Jack Riddles. The chestnut filly, by Reformation .Motto, by Sir Modrcd, is named Lois V., aud the bay filly, by General Roberts Dont, by Octagon, is called Ml Alma, which is Spanish for My Sweetheart. Jack Riddles is a brother to Bing. Lois V. is a half sister to Sir Harry and will be the first starter by the young sire Reformation, which Is a son of Ossary and Future Bride, by Ben Brush. Mr. Vnh Gordon sent five two-year-olds to the races this season. One, Alwilda, was injured in a, wreck, but recovered sufficiently to place during .the year, while the other four proved pood race winners, they being Bing, Sir Harry, Princess Janice and Barbara Lane. He has five weanlings now at his ranch near Danville. Cal. One Is a brother to Princess Janice and Florence Roberts; another is a brother to Sir Harry and still another is a sister to Bing. The remaining one is a chestnut colt, by General Roberts Woolen, by Woolsthorpe, a young mare he bought from Col. W. E. Applegatc. Mr. Van Gordon now has six mares he thinks arc sure to produce next spring. Three of these Rose Cherry, Motto and Miss Roberts were mated with Reformation this year, while the other three Playful, Dont and Janice Marian were mated to General Roberts. If his present trio of coming two-year-olds fulfill expectations at Juarez this winter Mr. Van Gordon will send tlie youngsters north the coming spring to race during the early summer on the Kentucky tracks. This season his yearlings shipped here from California in good condition and he expects to see every one of the trio show good winning form early in 1914. The two-year-old maiden black filly Farbant, by Dr. Leggo C01110, by Solitaire II., owned by A. B. Spreckels, which came here from Kentucky sick last month, died at the Juarez track a few days ago. She had never started and trainer C. W. Carroll did not have a chance to really try her out. Fortunately Mr. Spreckels had her insured for ,000. Of tlie 72! horses shipped to the Juarez track so far this season, only four have died. One of these died en route and the other three were not just well when loaded on the cars to come here. What few were ailing on landing here from various parts of the United States are all now safely on the road to recovery. J. II. Mead has forwarded to the Jockey Club the names he desires for his yearlings. The brown colt by Filigrane Miss Fleischniann, by St. Maxim, he desires to call Uncle Joe, and the chestnut colt by Czar Adelaide Royer, by Sain, he has named Dan Moran. The dam of the latter is a half-sister to four winners, namely: Little Rajah, Vanadum, Husted and Mescal. He is of the first crop of foals by that high-class race horse Czar, a sou of Uncommon, by Common, winner of the Two Thousand Guineas, Derby and St. Leger. These are the first yearlings Mr. Mead has ever invested in. Heretofore he has confined his racing operations to a string of old horses. He says that If these make good he will be in the market early next season for a big band of yearlings. Dr. I. E. Clark. Texas breeder aud turfman, has four yearlings now in his stable at the Jockev Club Juarez track in charge of trainer R. N. Vestal. They are all named and are a lusty looking lot of .youngsters, apparently with an abundance of early speed. They are: Charity Ward, b. f, by Luck and Charitv Ollie Ward. Faster Boy, ch. g, by Luke Ward Panlita. Luke Mae, ch. g, by Luke Ward Jessie Mae. Mamie V., ch. f, by Luck and Charity Success. Luke Mae Is a half-brother to Orb, a two-year-old winner of this season, which is still a member of the Clark stable. Trainer Vestal has only one other two-year-old in his care here, that being the filly Kindness, which was sick as a yearling when he had her here last winter getting her ready for the early juvenile events of 1913. All of the Clark yearlings have trained promisingly. Charity Ward met with a slight mishap recently. She got the best of her exercising rider and ran away for a mile, but she is now again at work and is apparently little the worst for the mishap. R. Crawford, who is under contract to I. E. Clark, can ride lighter than any licensed jockey now accepting mounts at the Jockey Club Juarez track. Crawford can mount a horse under colors at 85 pounds without carrying overweight. Other jockeys accepting mounts here under proper license who can ride at 95 jouuds or less are B. Marco. S9; A. Xeylon aud H. Phillips, 90: W. W. Taylor aud P. Ford, 94 each and J. McDonald and R. Booker, 95 each. Marco is under contract to R. B. Allen. A. Ncylon to J. Livingston. II. Phillips to Doer-hcefer and West. W. W. Taylor to Kav Spence, R. Ford to Max Hirsch, J. McDonald to F. D. Weir aud R. Booker to W. H. Tullcy. Advices from California are to the effect that the breeding of thoroughbred horses has been about abandoned at the famous Sauta Anita ranch of the late K. J. Baldwin. Thep are now only eight or ten blooded mares on the place and but two sires Cruzados and Rey el Santa Anita. The latter great horse is now 22 years old. Most of the thoroughbred mares were sold to a rancher in the Imperial Valley, as well as the foals of 1913. while the yearling crop of eleven head was disjwsed of to a Philadelphia turfman. They are by Rev el Santa Anita and Cruzados, with the exception of two eolts by Veterano. which won the Thornton Stakes, four miles, iu 1904. The only valuable horse purchased for the Santa Anita ranch recently Is an Arabian stallfon, which was secured to improve tlie breed Continued on second page. MANY HORSES AT JUAREZ. Continued from first page. of polo poules raised on the place. Soon the ranch so famous in the days of the great California turfman is to close its turf history and bo devoted to uses different from those employed in "Lucky" Baldwins lifetime. The halo of equine greatness, however, will ever hover around the place. Four American Derby winners Volante. Silver Cloud. Emperor of Norfolk and Key el Santa Anita carried the famous black and maltese cross of this noted turfman, while Santa Anita ranch was the stud home of the mighty Grinstead. which for a generation almost filled America with his fame and will always have a place in turf annals as one of the greatest sires of nil time. Mose Goldhlatt is training twenty horses here for Jefferson Livingston and he intends to start every one of them a number of times during the meeting now on at Juarez. The older horses include Iron Mask. Foundation. Bonne Chance. Prince Eugene. Anytime, Florin, Hyki, J. Nolan, Sosius and Thought Reader, while the other ten are yearlings. These yearlings cost perhaps more than any collection of youngsters owned by one stable that has recently leen sent to a winter track for racing and their trials to date seem to indicate that there may be a champion two-year-old in the Livingston stable next season. The only one of the lot named as yet is the bay colt, by Cesarion Chlnela, by Ben Brush, which will race as Jack Dempsey. This colt is a brother to Gipsy Love. The other nine are: Bay colt, by Star Shoot Ethel Levy, by Sir Dixon. Chestnut colt, by Peter Quince Anna Loretta Daly, by Ben Brush. Bay gelding, by Cesarion Line of Life, by Sweetheart. Bay colt, by Peep oDay Dividend, by Ingoldsby. Chestnut colt, by Nasturtium Highland Princess, by Jim Gore. Chestnut colt, by Cesarion White Plume, by Order. Bay filly, hy Golden Maxim Notasulga, by The Commoner. Black tilly, by Rock Sand Selina D., by Long-follow. Bay filly, by Cesarion Sneerwell, by St. ltlalse. The latter filly is a brother to the famous two-year-old. A. J. Small and Ootna, and a half-sister to that good campaigner Queen Marguerite. Frank Wooden, a horse now in training here, came Into the possession of J. C. Louder In an odd manner. W. lx.ach, who had Frank Wooden in bis stable, took, a fancy to one of Louders young sons, a brother to Jockey I. Ixmder, who is now training horses. Leach made a proposition to Louder to trade Frank AAooden for a contract on the boys services and Louder took him up on the proposition. When Leach bought Frank Wooden that horse was not registered. It cost Leach $.10 to register him and 0 to get him named, ills Missouri breeder having neglected to observe the Jockey Club rules In this regard when he was a yearling and. a two-year-old. Paddock Judge Hall, of the Jockey Cub had Frank Wooden registered for Leach. The gelding is a son of Magistrate, once a star in August Belmonts stable, and Is out of Early Notice, by Take Notice, lie is not a John Griffin II, or a Wilhite. but he is a performer o.f some merit.
