Churchill Downs Douglas Park are rapidly thinning out of ai horses and by the end of the week practically all M the thoroughbreds intended for winter racing qi will have departed. Even though quite a few n: owners who heretofore did not race in the winter bi be have decided to take a fling at the sport during ft the cold months this year, there will be a larger ti winter colony at the local tracks than ever before, a Some of the horsemen who will remain here until oi next spring and the number of horses they have are: J. S. Ward and Roscoe Goose, 15; C. C. Van A Meter, 15; B. J. Brannon, 22; John 13. Madden, 52; George J. Long. 30; Waldeck Stable, 1C; W. F. Kne- v belkamp, 8; W. V. Thraves, 8; Dan Lehan, 10; R. fl Brooks, 7; W. M. Wallace, 14; W. Martin, 15; t J. Kelley, 12. Kay Spence took the twenty-six horses which he t owns to Havana and the eight that ho left here belonging to W. V. Thraves, including the yearling li for which the latter paid 4,500 at Saratoga last summer, will be in charge of W. Covington. Spence will return early in the spring to get them ready for Kentucky racing. While, in Cuba he will dis- I pose of the greater part of his own horses. William Hurley took a division of the E. R. Brad- ley stable to Xew Orleans. Jockey Simpson Boyle, j the fine little lightweight rider of the Bradley establishment, will report to Hurley after taking a j couple of weeks rest at Idle Hour Farm. One of the largest shipments of horses to the Crescent City from here was that of Knebelkamp and Howerton, . which numbered . nineteen. They left 1 yesterday in charge of trainer George Arvin. J. I Williams -and .W Moore will do the riding lor this s stable at New Orleans. MATT WINN GOES TO COVINGTON. Matt J. Winn, general manager of the Kentucky Jockey Club, departed yesterday for his home in Covington, Ky., where he will spend the greater part of the winter. Col. Andrew Vennie expects to leave for -New York in a day or two and he will ; remain in that vicinity until spring. Several owners witli horses aboard the special 1 train, that left for Havana Tuesday night have received telegrams from the men in charge of them advising them that not only is the train making good time, but that all of the thoroughbreds on it are well. The special was made up of twenty-five cars. W. C. Wearit changed his plans at the last moment and sent his horses to Cuba instead of Xew Orleans. He left for Havana last night. J.-D. Adkins; Canada Jack is another who is giving the Cuban racing a trial this winter. The stable which lie shipped from here was augmented by a couple of horses that he had turned out at Lexington all summer. II. D. Brown, general manager of Oriental Park, left yesterday for the east to look after the ship-l ments of horses from that section to Havana. Jockey Mack Garner has gone to his home at Centerville, Iowa, for a rest. He has not made his plans for the coming winter, but he said that in all probability he will ride at Xew Orleans. K. D. ALEXANDER SELLS HIS FARM. Kenneth D. Alexander, owner of Escoba and several other good horses, has disposed of his farm at Spring Station, Ky.. and in the future will make his home in New-York. He sold 1,100 acres at a figure said to be in excess of S300 an acre. Before the Churchill Downs meeting closed trainer William J. Young sold several of Mr. Alexanders two-year-s olds for him. John W. Schorr left for his home in Memphis. He will be on hand at New Orleans this winter, as usual. Roger Sullivan and Edward Krugel, bookkeepers for the Kentucky Jockey Club, leave for Lexington tomorrow to audit the books at the track there, after which they will go to Latonia on a similar mission. From Latonia Krugel will go to Havana, where he is employed during the winter. Al Luzader purchased Maramon and Ponderosa from Jefferson Livingston. He will race them at New Orleans. Ted Koerncr, at one time the leading jockey of America, has gone to Havana and he will make an effort to resume riding there. He rode with much success at Oriental Park the year it was opened and he isS of the opinion that he will have no trouble getting down to a decent riding weight again, due to the warm climate there. He has been out of the saddle for several years since he led the riders at Xew Orleans. W. M. Wallace has one division of the J. W. Melt Clellaud stable in his care and he expects an nddi-e tiou to it from the east at any time. Those he has in charge are mostly two-year-olds, Only one-third of the Waldeck Stable eight horses went to Xew Orleans this winter. The other sixteen will be rested up here.
