J. W. McCLELLANDS STABLE AT HAVRE Eternal Looks Fit After His Long Rest and la Being Prepared for Latoaia Championship Stakes, i HAVRE DE GRACE. Md., September 5. The stable of James W. McClelland, of which Eternal, the juvenile champion of 191S and the Brooklyn Handicap winner of the current year is the most distinguished member, has arrived from Saratoga. Mr. McClelland will not race anything at Belmont Park. His two-year-olds have had a lot of racing, and he feels that they will be all the better for a rest before the beginning of the Maryland fall season. The Harford Agricultural and Breeders Association will usher in Maryland fall racing on September 11 -with the running of the ,000 Harford County Handicap, a race of one mile and seventy yards, for three-year-olds and over. Mr. McClelland hopes to have Eternal in condition to start in the Harford County Handicap, and if he is not disappointed and the brilliant son of Sweep and Hazel Rurke makes a good showing in the Harford County Handicap, Eternal will be shipped west in October to start in the 0,000 Latonia Championship Stakes. Eternal seems to be in splendid bodily condition. He is full-fleshed and has plenty of spirit. Mr. McClelland and trainer Kimball Patterson believe he is capable or running a mile over the Havre de Grace track with the best of them. The three-year-old Cromwell is the only horse past two years old of the McClelland stable that is anywhere nearly ready for racing. Cromwell,-:! son of Plaudit, which, in early spring, was rated a colt of Derby quality, lias not raced to expectations, but he is a fast plater. Hasten On, a son of Great Britain and Crystal Maid, and The Trout, a son of Rapid Water and Sandriiigham Belle, are the two-year-olds Mr. McClelland will point for the 0,000 Eastern Shore Stakes, Havre de Graces best juvenile special. Hasten On and The Trout both showed well at Saratoga. The Trout graduated from the maiden class at the upstate Xcw York track. Andy Schut-tinger, who will ride as a free lance at Belmont Park, will pilot the McClelland horses at Havre de Grace, Laurel and Pimlico. It. A. Smith and G. R. Bryson will tarry at Belmont Pari: for a week before they bring their thoroughbred racers to Havre de Grace. Bryson and Smith shipped from Saratoga to Belmont Park last Sunday morning, all their horses being in fine trim. Slippery Elm, which appears to be as good now as he was when he raced at Havre de Grace last September, is the best breadwinner of the Smith string. Slippery Elm won two purses at Saratoga, .one at one mile, one at one mile and an eighth. He will be Mr. Smiths starter in the Harford County Handicap, also in the Q,000 Havre do Grace Handicap, a race of a mile and an eighth, that will be run on Septenibor 27. With Slippery Elm Mr. Smith will bring to Havre de Grace Kalitan, the son of Rey Hindoo, which won the Preakness Stakes of 1917 for Edward K. Brad-ley. Mr, Smith tried Kalitaa at long, distance run- ning at Saratoga and found that he did not like it. Kalitan will be reserved for sprinting in Maryland this coining fall. Edward Stalker, who has been undergoing discipline for a month, will ride for Mr. Smith in Maryland. Tlie best horses Mr. Bryson will bring to Havre de Grace are Sedan, a winner at Saratoga last week; Daddys Choice, Celto, another Saratoga winner; Buckboard, Philippic, Sky Pilot, Harwood, a winner at Aqueduct in July, and Jack of Spades. These horses did little at Saratoga. Mr. Bryson took them to the Xcw York tracks to freshen them up for the autumn campaign in Maryland, and they did little but eat and gallop. Buckboard and Daddys Choice are the most forward of the Bryson horses that have not been racing. They are full-fleshed and full of ginger. Sedan is better than he has been all the year. Jack of Spades is just beginning to gallop after a long letup. Wida "will ride for Brysoa at Havre de. Grace,
