A K MACOMBERS HORSES IN TRAINING Stable Formidable in Its Older Division but Weak in ThreeYearOlds NEW YORK N Y March 14 In point of numbers A K Macomber will start the 1919 racing season with a stable of horses about equal to that owned vby Commander Itoss having thirtyfour while therKqs establishment hajt1tl jrtyrfij head Walter Jennings who looks after the welfare of the Macomber string does not appear to have the qual ¬ ity of material he had last spring unless it be in the twoyearold division and that question is always unanswered until the horses are publicly exposed It must be remembered that much of the strength of the Itoss stable was bought from Mr Macomber when the latter parted with War Pen ¬ nant Motor Cop and War Marvel Had War Pen ¬ nant been retained by Mr Macomber he would have had one good horse in each of the older divisions Star Hawk in the sixyearold class Hollister and Star Master in the five War Cloud in the four and War Pennant to represent the threeyearold group which in his absence looks a weak collection As it is there are thirteen threeyearolds in the string none of which cut any decided figure as twoyearolds It may be that one or two of them will develop into something better but it is doubt ¬ ful PennantStar if there is anything to equal War Pennant Star Hawk Liberty Loan War Star arid Hand Grenade have not yet arrived at Belmont Park from the west but they are expected any day Star Hawk has been out of training for a year or two but Mr Jennings has hones that he may be brought back It was in 1910 that Star Hawk finished second to George Smith in the Kentucky Derby after a gallant struggle His defeat upon that occasion was generally conceded to the masterly ride Loftus gave George Smith as against the efforts of Lilly on Star Hawk In other words Geqrge Smiths victory was due largely to experienced piloting After that Star Hawk won three races beating horses like Spur and the good mare Embroidery among others of more or less note Should this horse come back to his youthful form there is little question that he will be a decided factor in han ¬ dicaps and weightforage races over long courses It is likely however that Mr Jennings will place some reliance on War Cloud Hollister Star Master and handicapsOf Hand Grenade to fill the bill in handicaps Of the threeyearolds there is not a shining light among them on last years records Several of them never started and others but occasionally Develop ¬ ments may ensue after a winters rest but on the surface the weakest division of tiie Macomber string is the threeyearolds threeyearoldsALL ALL UNCLE TWOYEAR OLDS OLDSThere There are stables racing this year that will begin with a much stronger hand than Mr Jennings holds in fact the general opinion is that he has a surplus of dead wood that could be well weeded The two yearolds arc all colts and sons of Uncle through ¬ out Some of them give promise but no one can tell just how they will turn out The most un ¬ likely proposition sometimes grows into distinction Rncinr only is the test for horses Good looks go for nothing Hence like all other trainers Mr Jennings has an equal chance to get a good one out of his band Several of the youngsters have been entered in the future stakes indicating a preference but Mr Macomber is a great advocate of stakes racing insisting upon entries when there is a possible chance of success successLast Last autumn there was every indication that the turf would lose Mr Macomber but after a con ¬ ference with trainer Jennings lie decided to con ¬ tinue upon the one consideration that Mr Jen ¬ nings would take charge of affairs Had Mr Jen ¬ nings declined it is doubtful if Mr Macomber would have had a stable of horses in this section of the country
