The Jockey Clubs annual meeting, which is to be held on Thursday, will be a lengthy one. probably lasting until late in the evening. There may be an adjournment for dinner. New rules will be the principal subject under discussion and there may be a few changes of minor importance from those proposed by the rules committee, which wore published in the Bacihg Calendar and Daily Racing Form two weeks ago. Drastic changes are improbable, the general comment on the proposed changes being favorable. Louis Martine has a half dozen good horses in his barn at Gravesend. Although some of them have recently been ailing, all are now healthy. "I have a colt by Plaudit — Ivabel which I think so much of I have insured him for ,000. Some colt, if I mistake not. Several of my horses had distemper and a high fever for several days. I think the malady was brought to Grnveseiul by one or two noises that were bought at one of the recent sales, but they are recovering and the trouble will sooii be stam [ied out. "Jack McGinnis lost a fine colt a few days ago when Kens died. He was a colt McGinnis claimed from Gifford Cochran. All the other horses appear to be in good condition at Gravesend." A. .!. Davis has thirteen horses doing winter work at Jericho, Long Island. Twelve are jumpers and one a yearling. Mr. Davis says he schools them frequently, the ground being soft in his district. "1 think I shall have some good jumpers lor next season," said Mr. Davis. Maxey Ilirsch. who trains for Congressman George W. Loft, as well as having one or two horses in iiis barn belonging to other owners, says there are more horses at Belmont than were ever there before during the winter. "Some look mighty good," said Max, "but there are a number which are not much." Mr. Ilirsch is one of the horsemen who believe n the enforcement of the rule barring two-year-olds from being raced in early spring and winter. He beUerea there wenld bo a groat improvement in the American product if the first two-year-old race was not run until June 1 every year.
