Belag i slots begtaaer, tin- route of three qaarters will help him considerably, as he always runs the lasj pari of his races faster than the first part. Trainer Will Vouag has beea giving him a goad real since his defeat in the Spring Trial Stakes and he is confident that he will turn the tables ■ a .1 .s. T. lark if the going is fist. This marked the first .hfeat of Bacobaa career and he was roacediag much weight to the ether* ami ran aver a track which capped under him ami he evidently did not run free I in the geiag. Viva America has .t to be fully exteaded to win and she is such a good looking filly ami s.. fast, thai own-r Charles T. Worlhiiigtoii has been besieged with handsome offers for her stace bet recent victory in the CHpectta Stakes. Last year this race fell to a filly. Am-rica. Owaed by Major I". C. McDowell, but that was the first lime a li!l. • ia.1 won •! -ii..-.- 1P11, w h. a it was captated by I. Lightning. Since his victory in the Spring Trial Stakes at Dougla* Park, .las. T. Chirk has beea given a n-st and trainer Uooney of Ihe .1. W. Schorr establishment is fitting him for the trophy, which he is .-infideiit he will win. This colt was slow in com bag to hand, but whea he did get right, he demonstrated that he is a shifty youngster and will take ipiitc a bit of beating, not only in Kentucky, but when he me. ts the eastern cracks in New York later in the summer. Ocean Sweeps win last Saturday. vhen she came from far back and fairly ran by horses at the end. sliowud that the three iiuarlers will help her chances aad traimr Pete Coyae easnddet* bet one of the best fillies of her age lie has trained since Kath-le.n was a two year ..Id. she likewise wUl go east at II..- end of the Latoniu meeting aad she bids Lir to more than hold her own in that section of the country. As an example of the popularity of the resnbl nation pari Matuei machine* at Latoaia, there were L.Llt; combination tickets ,u Ihe two aad three horse combinations swrehased on Derby Day. At one time there were between four ami five hundred people in Itae waiting io gel to the combination booth, but they all gal on. It is not an iincoiin.i. n ■oght h. re to see the ion backet* begin to line up as early as 1 oclock in the afternoon ami by the time .lohu Wagact, who looks alter this ma-chine at all of the Kentucky track where it is used, opens up. he finds a couple of hundred of them in line. Bianchi Has Now Stable to Train. O. A. Biam-hi has taken over the horses to train that formerly raced in the name of the Abated* Stable. They run in the interest, nam.- ami colors •f Mrs. A. .1. .Merle, who had the Aimed! Stable dissolved throagh court proceedings at Louisville. The .1. Ilersoii Livingston stake*, which cut such a wide swath in the racing at New Orleans ami Hot Springs last winter and also at the sprim; meeting at Lexiagtea, leading the winning owners at all of these tracks, s ems to have struck a snau. as its victories nowadays are few ami far between. The two year old division of this stable, in charge of trainer Louis Tatiber. is still at Churchill Downs, where the youngsters will be kept until the fall mootim; opens. The older horses, in charge of Mose Goldbtatt, do not seem to be near as good as they were last winter and in the early spring. It. L. Baker intends to take King Oorin. his Kentucky Handicap winner ami the greater part of his stable, to Windsor at the conclusion of the local meeting. He has requested Frank Brueii, who is looking after Windsors interest here, to save twelve stalls for him. He has King florin well nominated in the stakes for which he is eligible at that course. Last spring at La tenia the "Baker boys." as the W. H. Baker stable is referred to in these parts, won three stakes out of the nine that were run. but this season this establishment is not so well fixed in stake horses. In lillt! they won the Harold Stakes with Grata Jones, the Merchants with Lady Uotha and the Valuation with Walter H. Pearee. Their main reliance in the stake division this year is Bringhurst. which is an eligible for the ,000 Quickstep Handicap. Starter Harry Morrissey. who wields the barrier at all of the Kentucky tracks, has shown better form at I atonia this spring thus far than ever before in his life. At Louisville Morrissey had an off day or two. but he quickly recovered and bad starts are few and far between here. With many bad riders to deal with apd no whips in the Lands of the assistant starters, the life of a starter ir. this state is anything but a bed of roses.
