BUSY SCENES AT LEXINGTON TRACK Trainors Tightening Up Their Charges for Next "Weeks Racing Latest Gossip. By T. 1$. Cromwell. Lexington, Ky., September G. The Kentucky Association track was in excellent condition this morning, when the recently arrived racers from Saratoga, Latonia and Louisville came out for their exercise with those locally trained. W. U. Bakers horses were all worked in preparation for trislls later on and they acted as if the footing was a pleasant surprise to them. The most noteworthy move was Bufords mile in 1:12. He went the half in 49, three-quarters in 1:15 and seven-eighths in 1:28. His ankles did not bother him in the least and it now looks as if this fellow, which is owned by the elder H. P. Hcadley and trained by T. P. Hayes, may give a good account of himself next fall. J. B. Respess was on the job in person and directed the movements of his string at half speed. Cliff Hamilton worked Believe Me Boys and Paul Connelly three-quarters in 1:15, both well in restraint. Hiders of these horses were Hugh and Itufus Shilling, both now in the employ of E. If. Bradley. J. C. Milam worked Catesby Wpodfords Right Angle three-quarters in l:15Vf. and J. X. Camdens Everest in 1:15, while Atalanta went five-eighths in 1:03. Lige Brewster worked Margaret N. three-quarters in 1:17. and Lucille P. in 1:10. Arch Plotter worked five-eighths in 1:03. William Martin worked Sunny Slope and Jack Stuart five-eighths in 1:03, and Kirsties Cub three-quarters in 1:10. The stables of T. C. McDowell, John W. Schorr, H. H. Hewitt and W. Hurley are expected here from Saratoga tomorrow morning. A. L. Austin will come over from Louisville tomorrow with six and Joseph Umensetter will be here with eight horses.
