CURRENT NOTES OF THE TURF The Quincy Stable has renewed its contract with jockey T. Bice for the year 1920. American Boy. the property of the Quincy Stable, pulled up lame after his last race. C. t. Applegates Hampilen, which was badly cut down iu the first race at Aqueduct Tuesday, may never race again, his injury being more serious than was first anticipated. Tom Healey, Mr. R. T. Wilsons trainer, did not like to lose Corn Tassel and said after the sale: Hildreth has taken my job. He has bought Corn Tassel. He practically was my whole stable this season and I regret that I told Mr. Wilson to put a price on him. Fifteen thousand dollars is a lot of money for an old gelding, but that fellow is worth every cent of it." It is strange to read of a horse developing into a useful stayer after being tubed, but there has been an instance of the kind in Englaud quite recently. Owlug to the fact that he was a roarer, Lord Glanelys horse Skyrocket was tubed, after which lie created a surprise by winning over a long distance. This is an unusual happening on the flat, but not iu bteeplechases.
