TURF GOSSIP FROM CANADIAN SOURCES. Toronto, Out., October 28. The colors of Charles Millar will lie seen in the cross-country events next year. Garish Sun, one of his string, raced promisingly over the jumps during the past campaign. Mausolus has schooled well and will be raced through the field next year. Trainer John Nixon, a skilful man with timber-toppers, is also educating Tartarean, the King.s Plate winner of last year, and Fair Montague to jump, and they have shown remarkable ability. Before shipping his horses to Hamilton to go into winter quarters, Walter Obernesser disposed of the jumper Morpetli to C. Hall of this city and purchased the two-year-old Thistle Queen, a rather smart filly. The steeplechaser, Indian Arrow, and Perpetual are the other members of the Hamilton turfmans string. W.- Sherard, who had considerable success witli the Obernesser horses this year, will train them again next year. Trainer Sherard has three horses at Woodbine, Dehaven, which F. J. Vose recently purchased from the Seagram stable, an untried two-year-old, and a yearling bay colt by Live Wire Be Quiet, the property of George Em-pringham. The latter is a Canadian-bred and is a good-looking youngster. M. Le Roys Heclas Flame, which pulled up lame after her last start at Hillcrest Park, was suffering only from a bruise, and is going soundly again. A good-looking yearling colt by Plaudmore Holly-brook is the remaining member of the Le Roy string. William Walkers Mona G. fell lame in her last race at Hillcrest Park and has been turned out until spring. Walker will not take tlte yearlings of his own breeding to any of the southern tracks next winter as in the past. This automatically makes home-breds ineligible to run in the Kings Plate. Mr. Walker thinks too well of a yearling son of Stanley Fay to disqualify him in this way from being eligible for the Plate of 191S. J. F. Hynes purchased the Canadian-breds. Mc-Bride and Offertory with the intention of making jumpers of them. MeBride will be wintered here and educated at Woodbine. Offertory was shipped to Maryland with the remainder of the Hynes horses in charge of trainer M. J. Daly. This veteran trainer, of Claude fame, has received a tempting offer from tho owner of a big stable in the east for next year, which he is likely to accept. In such event, Mr. Hynes will probably train his own horses i.ext year. He met with considerable success while training Kokomo on the Canadian tracks some years ago.
