: j , j , . : CURRENT NOTES OF THE TURF. James McManus has transferred his horses from Belmont Park to Gravesend, where they will be given light work during the winter months. S. T. Booker, an old-time trainer, has a chestnut filly by Glorifier Puritan Girl, by Yankee, quartered at Gravesend that looks promising. She has worked an eighth in 11 and a quarter in 23, without being extended. J. L. McGinnis has returned from England and Ireland, whither he went with a view of buying some racing stock. He did not bring hqme any thoroughbreds with him, but he has some options of which he thinks rather well. R. O. Miller arrived at Gravesend, Friday, and brought with him fifteen horses belonging to Oscar Lewisohn, F. R. Dccter and others, and he anticipates that his string will be augmented by ten Importations from England within a week or ten days. Trainer Midgley is having good luck with the fine string of yearlings belonging to Gifford A. Cochran and, unless some of the shrewdest trainers ; at Belmont Park are very much at fault in their predictions, some of these youngsters should race 1 well during the coming season. Bruce McDaniel, who has just returned from a trip i to Charleston, reports that there are many horses in i winter quarters there. Among them A. K. Macomber has 51, John Sanford 32, E. R. Bradley 23, Ed Trotter 7, and Jefferson Livingston 21. McDaniel reports that all are doing well. Andrew Blakcley, who is training a string .of eight yearlings for A. A. Reilly, president of the Victoria Oil Company, is making his arrangements to take an even half dozen of them to New Orleans , . along with the well-known platers, Bromley and imported Pinch. He expects to ship from ! Gravesend next Thursday. Nash Turner is looking after about a dozen imported yearlings, the property of T. P. Thome. These youngsters are a splendid-appearing lot, both as to breeding and individuality. One of the lot. Lone Pine, a big dark brown colt by Magellan out of a daughter of Macdonald II., is one of the largest and most impressive looking yearlings of this season, and he still is growing. Trainer A. J. Goldsborough has two fine-looking yearlings at Gravesend belonging to Thomas Mono-han. One is a colt and the other a filly. Both are endowed abundantly with size, range and substance, both are highly finished and racy looking, and both have shown an ability to gallop fast. They are by Mr. Monohans good sire, Textile, the colt being out of Miss Hudson and the filly out of Submarine. The rest of the yearlings in the Goldsborough barn are doing finely and give promise of being a valuable band with which to begin the season of 1917.
