At Dufferin Park Monday, jockey Baker was suspended for three days for disobedience at the post and jockey Acton was set down until Saturday for rough riding. Sometime during Sunday night the horse Thirty-Seven got out of his stall at Hillcrest Park and roamed about the outskirts of Toronto until noon Monday, when he was found by the police. The Paducali Fair and Racing Association held four running and two harness races at its Fourth of July meeting at Padueah, Ky. The running horses came from Memphis, Tenn., and Louisville, Ky. The Sledmore yearlings have been sold en bloc to go to the states. Up to the present no American bid has been received for the stand at Newmarket, Windsor Castle or Westminster Abbey, but these may be expected at any moment. London Sportsman. Eugene Leigh, who has. opened the old Green Morris premises at Gravesend as a public training stable, bids fair to have the place rather well filled up with his own purchases. He now has five yearlings, which he bought at recent sales in New York, and he has the promise of several out- siders belonging to different owners.
