CURRENT NOTES OF THE TURF Edwina, while possessed of .1 fine turn of speed, is an unruly miss, a sulker and. not entirely a sound horse . Siren Maid, sold at Latonia last Monday to Chas. R. Ellison for ,600. goes to Mr. Edward R. McLeans stable and has been sent to trainer John. F. Schorr at Laurel, Md. It can be authoritatively stated that no matter what action the government takes in the matter of passport relief, the Juarez Jockey Club will not open its gates for a meeting the coming winter. Flags, one of the speediest sprinters on the American turf last year, seems to be lacking in that essential quality in his races this year. In 1018 Flags won eleven races and .0S9, while this year he has won only two. Tim great English mare Throstle was Wind as a suckling and Lord Arlington came near to giving her away to a farmer neighbor. Later it was found that the filly could see, and ridden by M. Cannon she unexpectedly Avon the St. Leger of 1894 at 50 to 1. A consignment of thoroughbreds now racing ht Empire City will depart for Jefferson Park, New Orleans, at the conclusion of that meeting. G. Peterson, C. A. Applegate, J. Bycr and the Crown Stable are a few who plan to ship directly to that track. Trices for good horses are extremely high nowadays. Two or three prominent eastern owners would like to add Mr. R. II. Andersons good Assagai ilortensia colt Angon to their stables and have asked for his price. There was but one answer to all "0,000," The colt, a nice medium sized, good looking individual, has run ten-races this season and won four of them and ,090.
