EASTERN TWO - YEAR - OLDS . Will Clash with Californians at Fair Grounds This Week. H. P. Whitney Youngsters Ready to Race Waldeck Stable Juveniles Highly Regarded. XEW ORLEANS, La. January 19. The rivalry between the California anil eastern stables over the honor of sending tlie must two-year-old winners to the p:st during tlie Fair Grounds meeting will be keener linn ever during tlie present week when several of tlie more prominent eastern establishments will start their "baby" raeers for the first lime. Thus far the western stables, headed by those owned by A. 15. Spreckels and Edward Cebrian, lufve bad things pretty much their own way. They have been walking away witii the purses for two-vear-olds sinmly beeause their youngsters were read v. while those of the rival eamp were not. The Celirian and Spreckels youngsters, for instance, prior to coming here had received their preliminary training and had been thoroughly schooled to the barrier before leaving tlie farm. The Kentucky and eastern contingents, on the other hand, reached hen- practically grefii. and their education had to be begun after their arrival. Now that this is com-pl-ted and they are schooled to tlie barrier, they :.re readv to enter nnon their racing careers and uphold the honor of their native heaths. The present fine weather, which has succeeded an uu-usuallv cold spell, has worked wonders with the juveniles from the east, and assisted materially in their ..!rfjinratinnfor -the- careers, . ahead, ofthem; Ilarrv Pavne Whitneys splendid band of youngsters, in charge of Mose Goldblatt, will be among those that will figure in tlie juvenile races during the present week. Trainer Goldblatt has them thoroughly fit and ready, and lias been only awaiting the advent of wanner weather to send them to the races. When these highly-bred youngsters start racing local racegoers will have something to talk about. It is the confident lielief of trainer Goldblatt that out of tlie string there will be developed one or two that will bring further fame and glorv to the Whitney colors.

"There goes the finest looking band of two-year-olds-on the race track," remarked Ham Keene to a group of other horsemen as seven of the Waldeck Stables youngsters filed past on their way to be schooled one morning last week. And those addressed agreed witli trainer Keene without one dissenting voice. Keene is mnt enthnsiastie about the fifteen two-year-olds be is training here, and indeed he lias much reason for feeling the way he dois. Thev are without doubt a superb looking band, nil well developed, and the equal in appearance of any number that could be brought together anywhere. "I dont want to boast," Keene continued after his hearers bad critically examined tlie youngsters, "but if these dont make good then 1 will have to Mart to learn tlie horse training business all over Trainer Keene is particularly sweet on the colts by Luke McLuke. Jim Gaffney, Vandergrift and Ilonevwood, and the fillies by Assagai and Amphion. And "his partner, P. Bruce Head, who is sp?nd!ng the winter here alid is supposed to be a good judge of a horse, is just as enthusiastic as be is over the youngsters. lake tlie Whitney two-year-olds thev were rather backward when they arrived here, but have improved wonderfully and are now ready to enter upon a career that will mean so much to their owners. , . The Waldeck Stable embraces thirty-two head of horses and is oneMf the largest establishments at the track. In addition to the juvenile division it contains seventeen older horses, including Moscowa, P.asilius, Yermak. Pulaski, Salute, Gourmand, Vindictive, Cocotte, Frostilla, Brimful, Lady Marathon, Lutetia, Brookland. Altisidora. Mesalliance, Pas de Chance and Cracow. The good stayer Moscowa will be pointed for some of the long distance features that will le offered during tlie closing days of the meeting. When Frances Star won a Rice at the Fair Grounds one day last week it signalized tlie entry into racing of one of its most recent recruits Colonel James Fawcett, owner of the horse. Col. Fawcett, who has lieen stationed at Camp Merritt, X. J., was inspired in his turf ambitions by his ft How officer and friend. Col. E. B. Cassatt. Several times during the past season Col. Fawcett was the guest of his friend on tlie metropolitan courses to witness the running of the Cassatt horses, and finally, through a spirit of friendly rivalry. Col. Fawcett commissioned It. L. Brosler to purchase a horse or two to carry his colors. Bresler s purchases were St. Isidore and Frances Star and a couple of then vearlings, and the four were shipped to Xew Orleans to participate in the meetings here. Frances Star provided the auspicious introduction which may have the effect of enlarging Col. Faw-cetts racing establishment, and the turf is richer in the acquisition of a fine gentleman and a good sportsman. , , , Edward Cebrian, whose two-year-olds have been racing here with marked success, is immensely pleased witli the fine showing they have made, in view of the fact that it places his stallion, Von Trcmp, among the leading sires in the early part of tiie year. Ho intends disposing of all of the Youngsters now here, with tlie possible exception of a couple of the best ones. During the past week he sold Foreclosure and Lonely, both winners, and will no doubt find a profitable market for the others hp is willing to let go. At the Cebrian farm, near San Jose, Cal., are a number of other promising two-year-olds, and these will lie sent east to participate in tlie racing on tlie metropolitan tracks. There Hiv- also quite a number of yearlings at the farm, all the progeny of Von Troinp. 1
