YOUNG HORSES IN W. WALKERS CARE Promising Band of Fourteen Yearlings Are Quartered at Churchill Downs. Louisville, Ky., December 24. William Walker, who rode Baden-Baden to victory in the Kentucky Derby of 1S77, and who also rode the great Ten Broeck in nearly all of his races forty odd years ago, has gotten together a fine-looking band of fourteen yearlings, that lie will race on the Kentucky tracks next year. Most of the youngsters are the property of Dr. Otto Rogers, but they were all selected by Walker, who is regarded as one of the keenest judges of horseflesh in this state. The horses under Walkers care are now at Churchill Downs, where their preliminary training is being undertaken, and where they will be prepared for the spring racing season. The full list is as follows: Enmity, br. c, by Transvaal Illwill. Cerinus, ch. c, by Transvaal Cerina brother to Guy Fortune and Boniface. Counterbalance, b. c, by Dick Welles Compensate.
