RACERS DOING WELL AT GRAVESEND Half-Dozen Speedy Juveniles Are Quartered at Track — Older Horses Well Advanced. New York. May fi.— All Hie horses around Or.ives-end are doing well. There are several large stables at the track, including that of Eugene Lcigb. who has arrived with forty head. Nash Turner has a big band IM-Iouging to T. P. Thome and his young horses give much promise, if Bfecd is a criterion. Ocorge I Mom has more than t.venty head tx-long-ing to Ceorge Smith, who races under the nom de coins.- of the Prighlon Stable. There an- possibly a half dozen really promising t-.vo-vear-ohls exercising at Cravesend. Odoni has one or two likelv colts, Kai locker being one. American Ace. in the lable of Mr. Cebri.in. is another of which much is ex|H-cted. Nash Turner has three that are showing lietter than the other in his string and Jack loldsborough has one or two giK«l youngsters.

Heather English -bred horses, in conjunction with an associate, is pleased with his investment. One of the cheaiK-r ones has trained off a trifle, but the remainder are doing well and gradually becoming accustomed to their surroundings. Their early education was gathered around Central Park. ••I must first get them out of the habit of pulling up at tin- sight of a traffic policeman," said Mr. Pohihach. "or they may back up if they see a Piiikcrton man leaning over a fence rail or keeping the crowd back in the infield. It would be a fine tiling if somelKMly iu a blue uniform were to step up to the track in fruit of Lilicrty Light while he was in the lead for tin- Orcat American Stakes ami have the colt come to a standstill. I must say. however, the youngsters are as well behaved as any horses I ever saw. and soon will be acquainted with their new surroundings."
