the leading stables had representatives out for an airing and the trainers all seemed anxious to speed up the finishing process that will enable most to have starters in the different dashes on

his arrival in these parts and will be given considerable opportunity in races where he meets horses of a middle class The stable also has a valuable asset in jockey Robinson The latter also has been secured by Mose Goldblatt whose string of nine horses in ¬ cluding Sennings Park Jorice Fifi II and others should be quite a factor in the racing here hereGoldblatt Goldblatt departed with his horses

have the senices of three riders here Fairbrothcr MeAtce and Myers The latter is a promising apprentice rider A number of these riders are being kept under cover because of the rule by the Jockey Club
