The Inter t youngster his owner would not swap for anj yearling in all Kentucky. Mr. Barbee has about de- : elded not to dispose of any of these youngsters this t season. He probably will have them trained and t raced in his colors. A. 1.. Aste has a valuable yearling at the Barbee I farm, as well as a suckling colt. They are both ] bays in color, ami brothers to the great Ten Point. Ten Points two-year-old sister. Ten Pin. was hurt t a yearling ami could not be trained. Mr. Barbee bought her recently from Mr. Aste to use in the stud, and will mate her with sum noted horse, prob- i ably Peep OPay. next spring. The dam of Ten Point has again been Mated to Jack Paint this sea- aau. Mr. Aste recently declared that she was never i to In- mated with any other horse, so long as the sire of Ten Point lives. i Quhrio, which won the second race at Latonia lasi Priday in the c.ilors of James Orillin. has an interesting history. lie is out of a mare by King ston. and his second dam is Sundown, by Springfield, the dam of Peep OPay. As a yearling and two yea -old. Cabrio had slight mishaps that pre vented him from licing trained, and as a result he was broken to drive on the Illinois farm of .1. S. McOullOUgh. the owner of the horses traim r Griffin is racing at Latonia. ami of whose stable of thoroughbreds he has long had charge. Being a big. lusty gelding, when he reached his three-year -old age he was put to plowing, which burdened Ids legs and apparently made him entirely sound once more. I.a-t year, in the summer of his four-year-old form, Griflm had Gabrio shipped to Douglas Park, at Louisville, and began training him. He never raced him at all last year, and so the son of Nns-turtion did not carry colors until this spring. lie showed speed from the beginning and so he was not without a following when be win his maiden race last Friday. Ho will no doubt continue to improve. There are undoubtedly some two-year-olds which, if turned out by their owners and developed alowly, like Cabrio. would some day make good on the track that under ordinary circumstances are n ver beard of after going wrong at an early age. Dr. C. Cann has fired Tyree and 4rif for ankle troubles ami these two performers have loon turned ant until fall. He has also gelded for J. II. Baker the three-year-old, Sanguau. While James MacManus will keep Belloc. the winner of the Clark Handicap, at Louisville, and the Latonia Inaugural Handicap here this summer, in his stable for the present, he will likely turn the noted three year-old out next month, and make no attempt to train him again until next spring. The going wrong of the son of Oddfellow, was a great disappointment, as Mr. Mat-Manns regarded the Latonia Derby at his merry, ami ill spile of John Gunda brilliant performance in that race last Saturday, when he equalled the track record of tin In winning the race, be still believes Belloc would have beaten him. Mr. MacMnnna hones that Bellocs injuries will not prevent him from coming buck to the turf next season as a four year-old in hi- best form. His sudden breakdown was a big surprise to his owner, as up to tic time of his going wrong in his final Derlvy trial, he had not taken a sm_le lame step. The brilliant race run by Hawthorn at Latonia Saturday, when the big gelding made a new track record of !:11V-.. tor six furlongs, was the s uirCe of much gratification to main- turfmen who arc glad to see that C. F. Buachemeyers 0,000 gelding has tome back at last to his good form. It looks now as if his wind is not seriously enough affected to prevent him from winning many more race- for his owner, who originally bought the son of Hastings with the hopes of winning sach treats as the Kentucky and LntdUIa Derby races. Mr. Buache-n:oer j not discouraged over Hawthorns failure. and has long since won the geldings purchase price buck. He may make another attempt to win the Derby next year, if he can find a candidate that strikes his fancy that can be bought reasonably. Hawthorn is now in the care of J. r. Milam, ivhosi stable has perhaps a stronger following of Cincinnati turfmen than any string of horses in training at the Latonia track. l"p to a few weeks ago |r. Milam did not save much faith that Hawthorn would mike gooii as a four-year-old thi- — air" . but he log geldings impr Dvesnent has caused him to change his Blind.
