Trainer Louis Taubor lias arrived at Douglas Park with the eight head of English-bred yearlings that were purchased in England last month for the American turfman, J. Livingston, by the English trainer, Jospch Butters. They were brought over on the ship Mongolia, which landed in the New York harlnjr, so says trainer Tauber, literally covered with American fiags. The captain of the vessel told Tauber that it was his last trip to the Avar zone until peace is declared, and he will put the vessel in the China and Japan trade. The youngsters stood their long trip unusually well and they are all around a racing-like looking band of yearlings with an abundance of size and mnch quality. There are six colts in the collection and two fillies. The colts are: Bay by Rcppo Oriar.e. Bay by Spearmint mare by Cyllono Thimble. Bay by Coek-a-Hoop Grassy. Brown by Llangibliy Roundelay. Hay by Charles OMalley Shirk. Brown by Senseleus Anne Boleyn. The latter is the only one that is yet named and he will nice under the name of Sentry Boy. The fillies are: Brown by "William the Third Half-a-Slice. Bay by Polymelus Spangled. Tauber also brought with him from New York a chestnut yearling colt that was put in his care to be brought to Kentucky by P. T. Chinn. Tauber has gone to Lexington to ship here six other yearling.- now at that place that are owned by Mr. Livingston, and the older horses Royal II., Prince? Eugene, Fleuro, Trim Harry. Princess Kathleen and .Sunward. This will make twenty horses owned by this tilrfman that Tauber will have in his care at the local track and this number will be increased by at least ten lyore before September sets in well. . The oulybArsethat Tauber now owns is Char- tier, which is done with racing and which he is now about to dispose of, having received an offer for the son of Hurst Park since his arrival at Douglas Park. By thus disposing of Chartier his entire time will be turned over to the training of this branch of the Livingston stable. He has secured permanent quarters in one of the long barns at Douglas Park, which will enable him to keep all the big string together. He has secured a number of competent stable helpers. His rubbers will be colored men and his exercise boys all white. Tauber lias many friends among race followers and turfmen of this city and state. All are wishing him much luck in the future with the big string he now has in his care.
