KENTUCKY YEARLINGS IN TRIALS Ballot Inspiration Colt Impresses Waterbury Youngsters Show Much Speed. LEXIXGTOX, Ky., Xovember 21. The best yearling at the Lexington track, according to Walter Grater, a good judge, is II. II. Hewitts Ballot Inspiration colt. "I am told that 0,000 is asked for him and the Ballot- Hazaza colt," said Mr. Grater. "He is a magnificent individual, with an exceptional amount of sense. He has speed, as we have all seen by his performances here, the best of which, apparently effortless, was a quarter in 22 with 140 pounds, up. That colt is quiet and willing and as quick as a flash. I dare say that when he goes into racing he will be one of the fastest starters and truest runners. He is a better horse than was Midway as a yearling, and I predict that he will grow into a larger and stouter horse than is Midway." Fred Courson lias claimed the name Chocho for his yearling chestnut filly by Jack Atkin English Esther, by Lord Esterling. Chocho is Chinese for "sweetheart." Chocho has not been asked to go a quarter, but has shown an eighth in 11. Another shipment of mares is expected from W. It. Coes Wyoming ranch at Himyar Stud within a few days to be mated next season with Poly-melian. Finis, the two-year-old half-sister to G. M. Miller, by McGee Subdue, owned in partnership by It. C. Frakes and J. Hart Brown, slipped ana fell in her paddock at Mr. Browns farm this week and injured one of her hocks. However, it is believed that she will stand training again. Trainer Frakes has taken up and is giving first lessons to Mr. Browns yearling bay colt by McGee Mary Michaels, a sister to G. M. Miller. He has claimed the name Rasola for the yearling bay filly by McGee Tinkle, which lie owns in partnership with W. E. Williams, a local broker, who also is inter-"ested in the two-year-old - Mazoht; in -the" Frakes string. Secretary S. C. Xuckols, Jr., is preparing the report to be made by the Kentucky State Racing Commission to the legislature, which will begin its session at Frankfort January 0. WATERBURY YEARLINGS IN CHINN STABLE. Tom Harmon arrived here Tuesday from Bowie and tcok charge of the yearlings in the stable of Phil T. Chinn at the Kentucky Jockey Club track, and they are to be wintered there in the care of this capable man. Xext spring they are to begin their racing in the colors of Laurence Waterbury, who, it is stated here, now owns the entire dozen. They are, however, to run under the supervision of Chinn, who is due in Kentucky next week from the east. Xine of these yearlings were given their final trials over a fast track Monday morning. Thd star cf the party on that occasion proved to be the brown filly by Fair Play Violet Ray, by Rock Sand, which was bred in Major August Belmonts Xursery Stud and bought out of Arthur B. Hancocks consignment at Saratoga in August for ,100. She did her quarter in 22 impressively. Xext fastest was the bay filly by Cicero Loritte, by Locliryan, she being one of the five bred in England by Mr. Chinn and foaled in Kentucky. Her quarter was in 22 JfP. The Cicero Sea Mist bay filly worked in 23. So did the Picton Enchantress brown colt and the Celt Dainty Dame chestnut colt, which was bred by A. B. Hancock and was sold by him at Saratoga for ,000. The chestnut colt by Picton Veletari, by Veles, and the chestnut colt by Cicero Orillia, by Loch-ryan, .showed quarters in 23. The brown colt by Jack Atkin Variant, by Disguise, which was bauglit out of Hal Price Headleys consignment at Saratoga for ,700, ran a quarter in 23 :3, and the chestnut colt by Celt Sand Dune, by Rock Sand, which was the high priced sale of the Hancock band at 2,500 and the third highest priced colt to go under the hammer at Saratoga this year, worked in 24. Men and boys at the stable, however, were not discouraged by this move. Judges declare that this colt is a real race horse and will prove-, it. The boys riding the yearlings in their trials are estimated to have weighed with their "tack" about 120 pounds each.
