CURRENT NOTES OF. THE TURF Jockey E. Haynes will ride at the navre do Grace meeting. Eastern reports say that old Stromboli will not race again and 1ms "been turned out as a pensioner for life. The Australian high-jumping record by a horse is seven feet eight Inches, by A. Judds Sundown, at the QuirindiShow on April 4, 1919. It was definitely stated in the London Sportsman that 00,000 was refused last year for Gay Crusader and it is improbable his value has depreciated. Trainer H. G. Bedwell is going slowly with Sir Barton and it is said the crack colt is once again displaying in his work the brilliant form he showed in his racing in the early spring. J. X. Camden, chairman of the Kentucky State Racing Commission and president of the Kentucky Jockey Club, is exhibiting at the Kentucky fairs twelve head of Hampshire sheep he recently imported from England. For losing mounts in an Australian steeplechase, when the value of the prize to the .winner does not exceed 50, ; exceeding 50, but not 00, 5; exceeding 00, but not ,500, 5; and when .the value of the prize exceeds ,500, 0. This applies to all courses. Female Svfeeper, a two-year-old bay lilly by Sweeper Scrap, by, Maintenou, in the stable of E. E. Marshall, is said to be a slashing big filly sixteen hands high and of excellent conformation. Bred in the purple as site is, the lilly is held in high esteem as a future stud matron, even if she never achieves much in.a racing way. War Pennants injury is not as -serious as reports from the east Indicate. At least the colt is able to work at Havre de Grace, where he is quartered witli the other Ross horses. War Pennant is" the only Ross horse eligible to the 0,000 Latonia Championship Stakes and it is hoped that lie will have recovered fully, in time for that big race.
