CURRENT NOTES OF THE TURF . 1 Louis Fettstel has arrived at Belmont Park with the horses of the Glen Riddle Farm Stable. George Odom is said to have several two-year olds : in the Brighton Stable of more than ordinary prom- I ise. Wayne Garns-r, broth-r of jockeys Mack, tiny. Lambert and Harry Garner, has received official ; notification from Imle Sam that he has been called , to the colors. Wayne, who is a messenger in the Louisville grandstand, was taken in the draft and he has only a few days more to spend around the race track. The filly Kate Bright, which seems to be a speedy creature, is atiout as close up to Lexington as any-horse now in racing. Her sire. Norford. is a great grandson of the "Blind Hero of Woodburn" through his sire Kmiieror of Norfolk and his graudsire Nor folk. Mavbe if Norford had had a chance with the high-bred stud matrons of the blue grass, the male line of Lexington would not now be so nearly extinct as it is. Norford is tlie sou of the Ameri can Derby winner Emperor of Norfolk and Miss Ford, which ran second in C. II. Todds American Derby. No one was more elated with the victory of Brad-levs Choice Saturday than was Mrs. E. R. Bradley, wife of the master of Idle Hour Farm, who bred the son of Cunard— Sweet Alice. When Mr. Bradley owned the horse he was an csi»ecial iter of Mrs. Bradlcv. and when he broke down ami was sold it was a hard blow to her. She has followed his career closely since he left the Bradley stable ami is always " rooting hard for him to win. ••! wish the track had remained fast," said Mrs. Bradley, "as I wanted to have the pleasure of seeing my ©id favorite take Sollys measure."
