JAMES R0WE MOST SUCCESSFUL TRAINER. Has Prepared H. P. Whitneys Horses for the Ker tucky Derby and Preaknets Stakes. S James Rowe. whose master hand has prepared Harry Payne Whitneys Kickety for the Kentucky Derby, and Tumbler for the Bleakness Stakes, has been one of the most successful trainers in America and he comes by his success honestly, as he is a past master at the art. It is true he has always had good horses to train, but has made those good horses do more than it is probable any other would have been able to accomplish. It was Rowe who trained the hand of the late James I. Keene when that sporlsmaiis name headed the list of winning owners season after season. A glance over the record of great American stakes will reveal the fact that Rowe has saddled more big stake winners than anv other trainer during the past twenty-five years." A jockey in his youth," Bowe has lieen reared with the thoroughbreds. Early in his carrer as a trainer, he handled the string that was raced by August Belmont. Sr. He was trainer for E. S. Thompsons Brookdale Stable, and for several years he fitted the horses of the Dwy. r heathen when I hat racing establishment was one of the foremost of the country. At different times Bowe has trained for other owners, but through it all his skill has kept him around the top of the heap. Some of the stake winners who were fitted by Bowe during his long career were Hanover. Hindoo, Miss Woodford. Delhi. .Maskette, LAlouette. Colin, Sysonby. Ballot. Whisk Broom II.. Sweep, Cha-cornac. Commando. Domino, Peter Pan. The Huguenot. Petruchio. Superman. Ornament. Coiiroy. Celt. Melisande. Helmet. Iron Mask, Pennant and Regret. These are names to conjure with in turf circles. To so consistently develop racers that overshadow competition must indicate a cunning far above the ordinary. Certainly Rowe did one thing no other has done. He won the Kentucky Derby with a filly. There are many who will follow the Whitney entry in IhiOi the Derby and Preakness next Saturday.
