Elwell, tlie bridge expert, and William Pendleton, both of New York. Tlie Beach Stable was organized at Saratoga last summer, and its most famous members are; Sunny Slope and Flags. StuinV Slope, a son of Astronomer, was bought by Mr. Carman for the Bcacli Stable at Belmont Park last fall after lie had won the Jerome and Belmont Park Autumn Handicaps on succeeding days. Mr. Carman paid William Martin, his developer, 5,000 for him, and Sunny Slope celebrated his first appearance under the silks of the Beacli Stnlile by winning tlie Municipal Handicap. After that he came, down to Laurel . Park and won a handicap iit one mile in 1:3745 from Tlie Porter and Tomboio.

Flags, a son of "Whisk Broom II. Inaugural, was one of the brilliant sprinters of tlie season of 1918. He was bred by Harry Payne Whitney and developed by Albert Simons. Through .the summer he did his racing mostly under the silks of the Brighton Stable. He won under the colors of Messrs. Pendleton and Elwell at Laurel and at Pimlico last fall. Other horses purchased by Mr. Carman to win for the Beach Stable in the waning months of the year were Valerius, Jusqu aii Bout and Ground-Swell. Like Sunny Slope, these horses are in splendid condition. They are now at the Benuing track awaiting the arrival of the man Mr. Elwell selects to train them this year. Getting them ready for engagements at Bowie. Havre de Grace and Pini-lico will be easy. They have been under light work all winter. There are some good two-year-olds in tlie Beach outfit.

Benning. One of these, a bay colt, dam Darumu. outworked any yearling at the old Washington track last fall. This youngster is a half-brother of Louise V.
