J. K. L. ROSS BIG STRING AT LAUREL War Pennant Has Grown Wonderfully During the Winter All the Horses Doing Well. BALTIMORE, Md., February 12. Commander J. K. L. Ross has thirty-six horses wintering at the Laurel track, and according to trainer H. G. Bedwell all are in a healthy, lusty condition. "My horses have been feeling so good that it was impossible to exercise them under the sheds, and I have been galloping and exercising on the track," recently said Mr. Bedwell. "And the Laurel track is in great condition and much better than it ever was. Of course it was 3. bit heavy last fall from the new coating of top soil, but that was all harrowed and packed in the early winter, and the track is now as good as any in the country. "Ive heard a lot of talk about this and that good-looking horse, such as Sun Briar, Westy Hogan, War Cloud, Sweep On and others," continued Bed-well, "but I want you to see Cudgel, and Ill wager that you will say he is the best looker of them all. "And Im more pleased with War Pennant than any of the horses, for I never saw a colt improve so much from a two-year-old to a three-year-old," said the trainer. "He has grown and filled out and his legs are perfect. Motor Cop has not done "so well, but still is a good horse. Nor has Milkmaid grown a great deal, but she still has plenty of size." However. Billy Kelly is the pride of the stable, and he, together with War Pennant, will be entered in the Kentucky Derby and other important three-year-old races. In the event that racing is resumed in Canada this year Commander Ross, will divide up, his stable and probably send Frank Stevens north witli the horses intended for a Canadian campaign.
