TIPPITY WITCHET TO RACE AT BOWIE BALTIMORE, Md.. November 11. Tippity Witchet, which once again is in winning form, thanks to the good work Max Hirscli has accomplished on his feet, will be the star of the string of racers of various ages George W. Loft will race at Bowie track, and the good little Broomstick gelding will not find himself in unfamiliar envirour ment at Prince George Park. Tippity Witchet was one of the yearlings Albert Simons developed at Uenning track in the winter of 1916-17, and it will be recalled he won the opening race of the season of 1917 at Bowie. It is not probable that Hirscli will race either On Watch or Donnacona again this fali, but lie will have good Bowie campaigners in Jean Iiullant, Dottie Vandiver and Cock p the Main, which he is training for Samuel Lewis of New York. The stars of the Kentucky and Watcrbury stables that will race at Bowie under the management of P. T. Chinn are Ticket, Torchbearer, Homely, Nightstick and Tom McTaggart. Philip Chinn has restored to Tom McTaggart all his old-time. speed, and the New York State bred son of Chuctamtnda is coining on famously. Already lie has won a couple of races at Pimlico track. Homely, which, like On Watch, Constancy and Donnacona,- was developed by Max Hirscli, ran a capital race in the Walden, and she is so good that Larry Waterbury lias decided to keep her racing to the end of the Maryland season. Nightstick is nearly as good as he ever was. He looks better than he ever did. Torch-bearer, which fell laine at Aqueduct in July, is standing famously. He has not won since lie came back to the races, but he is disclosing plenty of speed, and it is not improbable that he will earn a set of brackets before the Pimlico meeting is finished. . The deeply cushioned track at Prince George Park will suit "the bad underpinning of Torchbearer and the gait of Tom McTaggart. Horses that do well on heavy tracks elsewhere arc always good at Prince George Park when the going is fastest. Paddy Whack, which is in famous condition again, will finish .the eastern season at Prince George Park and then go to New Orleans, where Edward Soule has prepared to spend the winter.
