GREENTREE STABLES PROMISING MATERIAL. New York, December 13. For next season the Greentree Stable will have a strong hand at the Hunt Club meetings. Trainer James Owens has seven at Belmont Park, and if they fall to make good, those who have seen them will be greatly fooled. One of the recent purchases Is Virile. He has attracted a great deal of attention iu private exercises and not a few shrewd judges have already predicted that he will make one of the best crosscountry horses in America next season. Web Carter and Winkle, two sterling old performers In the stable, are both looking exceedingly well, while Ballet and Boisterous, winners during the past season, have broadened out and improved since they went into retirement. Cherry Malotto Is likely to make a brilliant jumper on which she has been showing and the two-year-old Tandstlckor has recently been brought on from Baltimore. Old Delirium, which promised so much early in the season, has heen turned out at Mrs. Payne Whitneys Manhasset estate, and it is problematical whether he will be brought back to the races. It will be remembered that he broke down badly at Saratoga and was retired at that time. As in the past, Charles L. Appleton will do the amateur riding for the stable, while Ernest Holder holds the contract for the professional mounts.
