J. H. ROSSETERS PLANS FOR THIS YEAR Horses to Be Trained at Hot Springs for Kentucky and Eastern Campaign. XEW ORLEAXS, La.. January 25. George Strate, manager of the breeding and racing Interests of J. II. Rosscter, paid a brief visit here during the past week for the purpose of looking over the stables horses that are in charge of C. J. Casey, and conferring with that trainer over the stables racing plans for the coming spring season. It lias been decided to ship all of the horses, including five two-year-olds that Mr. Strate recently brought from Wikiup Ranch, to Hot Springs about the middle of February, to rest them up there and prepare them for the meeting at that point. It is also planned to race the stable at the spring meeting at Churchill Downs, after which the horses will be transferred to Xew York for the metropolitan season. Entries will be made in all of the important stakes at Churchill Downs, principally the events for juveniles. Nominations will -also be made liberally to the stakes on the eastern tracks. The stables horses now being campaigned here are not what could be called high class, and Mr. Strate realizing this fully intends making a number of purchases of good horses to strengthen the stable for the spring campaign. The stable is now pretty strong in its two-year-old division, and it is confidently expected the youngsters that will carry the stables colors will prove to be above the ordinary. The youngsters recently arrived from the Pacific coast are a splendid looking baud, and in looks will compare favorably with those of any other establishment. Names have been selected for them, but those have not been made public. They are all finch- bred, as may be seen from the following list: Bay colt, by Squire Jack Berrills Choice. Bay colt, by Squire Jack Santa Malta. Chestnut colt, by The Manager Fancywood. Black filly, by Rockview Latona. Black filly, by Von Tromp Make Good.
