MANY HORSES AT HOT SPRINGS EXTERMINATOR AMONG RECENT ARRIVALS ETERNAL PICTURE OF HEALTH THE WANDERER MAY BE SENSATION OF THE YEAR TWO - YEAR - OLDS MANY . AND PROMISING HOT SPRINGS, Ark., January 31. Henry Mc-Daniel has arrived here with six of Willis Sliarpe Kilmers horses, including Extcrniiuator, the Kentucky Derby winner of last year; Mormon, a thrce-year-old by Ogden, and the .four maiden three-year-olds Ainstello, Vancouver. Tyranny and Itaigueur. Mr. McDaniel. who is the ciiief trainer of the Kilmer stable, says that the great Sun Briar is at Sun Itriar Court and will serve a few mares this spring, after which hi" will lie put into training for the Saratoga meeting in August. The Kilmer two-year-olds, seven in numler. are also at the Itinghamtou farm and will not be raced liefore July 1. There are several stables here at Oaklawn Park, the largest and most imiwrtant leing-J. W. MeClellynds nineteen, seventeen of which ore two-year-olds, and seldom if ever has anyone seen so many good looking youngsters in one string. The bay or brown colt, by Sweep Ethel Pace, is supposed to be tiie bright particular star of the band, and beins a half-brother to Housemaid and Alfred Noble, by the leading two-year-old sire, Sweep, he lias every right to be highly regarded. A big bay colt, by Great Britain Crystal Maid, and a brown, by Sea King, dam the good mare Queen Dixon, are extra good lookers and can .run. The latter is a colt of exceptionally good -action. Eternal looks remarkably well, and his coat glistens with -perfect hejilthv-llio-tnoat hor.iVMjim--tn June. He has not grown much, however, still lie is large enough, and being so symetrically built his appearance is somewhat deceptive. The Wanderer has crown wonderfully and is a grand looking individual and considered by many good judges superior in appearance to Eternal. A big bodied horse on short legs, he looks to have the robust constitution of ids great half-brother Uoamer. It is extremely doubtful if there was a two-year-old last year possessed of the wonderful speed of The Wanderer. He was improving every day up to the time of his retirement, and as he has grown and improved so much in appearance his trainer expects him to be the peer of any three-year-old in America the coming season. Good judges do not consider Patterson extravagant, in this instance, at least. The Wanderer will be u great three-year-old and a credit to his distinguished half-brother. He may lie the sensation of the year. W. F. Martin has fourteen, including Dulse" and Midway, the property of J. L. Parrish of Kentucky. Itoth" look big and lusty, as does Valor and the two-year-olds. Midway is one of the best handicap i horses in the country and twice defeated Cudgel last year, once at Saratoga and again at Laurel. Itlind Justice, by Fair Play Trance, is a handsome big three-year-old colt. Dick Vestal is u recent arrival from Texas and brought twelve youngsters with him. They are owned by Dr. Clark, mid are mostly by Meelick, Leonid and Everett, a son of Goldcrest and holder of the two mile track record at rimlico. Early Wright has eight two-year-olds, the property of G. W. Wingfield of Reno, Nevada. Seven of them are by Honeywood, the young Polymelns sire i Mr. Wingfield imported from England. They are a good average band. It. is to be hoped they will meet with a full measure of success, as Mr. Wingfield has been a most liberal patron of racing and has brought over some high-class brood mares and sires from England during the last few years. R. .7. Mackenzie has two fine colts by his favorite racer IJnckhorn. a son of Broomstick and Thirty Third. These are the first of the progeny of Buck-horn, a good horse that died too young. Another recent arrival is George -Jteicler wjth an ffveii ilozen-of-fhe ItevVrwyck "Stables noi-ses from Saratoga, headed by the game and consistent campaigner Old Koenig, a useful- horse of stake caliber; Imn Frank and nine three-year-olds comprise the others of this string. Lady Beverwyok is by The Manager Applause, and was a highly tried "yearling and n filly of great promise. C. E. Mickelwaite has five here in charge of Charley Borel, the jockey who piloted Omar Khayyam in the Kentucky Derby. It is safe to say that with the meeting here more than a mouth off. there are more high-class horses ouartercd at Oaklawn Park than were ever here before. Some of these juveniles are sure to develop into stars of the turf. The track is in excellent condition and as well if not better kept than any course in America, due to the energetic and intelligent supervision of superintendent Harry Schroeder.
