February 17.— Foxhall F. Keeiies racing siring i- quartered at Gravesesd in charge of trainer J. Murphy. Now that Pass in Boots has gone to England to run for the Oaks, the most noteworthy animal in the stable is the handsome and speedy brown ilnee-yi ar-old lilly LorSC, by Disguise | Wild Less. In niniiiiig second to lloiiiinani in the United States Hotel Slakes al Saratoga, this lilly made good her claim to be recognized as a youngster of stake class, and In all her races she showed a wonderful turn of speed. Although standing nearly or quite sixteen hands high, she appeared to be rather lightly and even delicately constructed, and it appears" possible that this may have been in a measure responsible for her failure to race successfully in the class to which her meat light of speed seemed to indicate thai she belonged. Just now. however, she looks much more like stayer than she did at any time in her Iwoyear-..ld form. She ha- thickened materially since she was seen under Bilks, and yesterday in her work she appeared lo be literally overflowing with animal -1 hit-. She had no rider up, Inn was being led by a boy who was riding one of Mr. Keeiies pop. ponies. She looked stout enough to be up to almost anything in the way of stake weights, and as she cantered around the stable ring she was kicking and playing like a Weanling. Tipperary is the name of a slashing big three-year-old colt by Fen Brush — Aciishla. He i- a rather bright bay with a blaze, and in conformation he bears a striking resemblance to his sire. He is much taller than Feu Frush. however, and is a colt of meal substance, good bone and. like his sire, he looks like a real race holse of Ihe substantial, sturdy -oil. This big colt is fully sixteen bands high and of great length lor a horse if his height. He appears t. be absolutely sound and as nearly as could be judged in seeing him in slow work he seems to have an admirable way of going. Although this colt has not had an opportunity of showing what he can do in a race, hi-tminer expects good things of him, and it would not be surprising if he should cirry the silks of his owner to victory early in Ihe coming season. Queen Mali is a big, rangy three-yeai -old filly by Peter Fan Mildred .Shiilts. This lilly is fully sixteen hands high and appears to have more than ordinary rang" for a lilly of her height. She has a long" neck, long body and peculiarly lengthy quarters. She has all unsiially high croup and seems lo bear the stamp of a real race horse, although she i- a tritle light in the bene below lie knee for i youngster of her size- and weight. As s|ie was so growthy and seemingly unnnislied. she wo**MM$ raced as a two-year-old, but she will he given a chance during the coming season. Landslide is a handsome and higlily-titiishml three-year-old bay colt by Voter — Debacle. Ho Is no stranger to race-goers of the Metropolitan circuit, and. according to present appearances, he should be returned a winner before the lose of the : of 1016. Last in Mr. Keeiies string is the sturdy three-year-old chestnut colt Indian Chant by Delhi — An-• them. In his two-year-old form this colt appeared rather small and light, but now. while he does net seem to have materially increased in height or range, he has thickened wonderfully, taking on much of the appearance of his illustrious grandsire Ben Brush. He is now a typical Bonnie Scotland.
