CURRENT NOTES OF THE TURF There will be no racing in Kentucky the first three days of next week. Latonia closes Saturday, and Churchill Downs does not open until next Thursday, October 23. Edith Mac, a mare bred by -John "E. Madden in 1897, and by Falsetto Cachuca, by King Alfonso, recently died in England. She was sent there in 1911 and produced one fair performer- Boontree: The French idea of a 20,000,000 sweepstakes or lottery to repair the ravages of the war is still on legislative tap through a bill of permission in the chamber of deputies. It only awaits British consent. On Watcli looks like the best horse yet sent to the races by the unbeaten Colin. His impressive victories in the National Stakes at Laurel and-the Queen City Handicap at Latonia stamps him as a colt of exceptional merit and one that will command more than passing notice when the question of the possible stars in the three-year-old division of 1920 is considered. Early in the English racing season the crack jockey Stephen Donoghue, whose services are in great demand, lived in railroad trains and .ships for some ten days. During the term he rode on four English courses and two Irish ones. It is Dono-ghues idea to make a record by riding a winner in France and in England on the same day, a possibility in these days of aeroplane traveling.
