TWO HIGHLY PRIZED YOUNG HORSES LEXINGTON, Ky., November 28. John I. Smith, trainer of the II. II. Hewitt horses, and manager of his breeding establishment at Forkland Farm, was asked the other evening concerning the trials of the two yearling colts by Ballot at the Kentucky Jockey Club track here .Sunday, November 1, whereupon he said: "The colts began together at the quarter post and ran down the stretch, but they were not together at the finish. The son of Inspiration, carrying 140 pounds, ran the quarter in 22 and pulled up the three-eighths in 30. The son of Ilazaza, a daughter of Inspiration, ran the quarter in 23 with 135 pounds up. The Hazaza colt is 10.1 hands, while the other colt is 15.1. I have since fired the ankles of the Ilazaza colt. "After the work some of the trainers asked me if the colts were for sale, and I told them the two could be bought for 0,000. "We have a weanling half-sister to the Inspiration colt bv Star Hawk. Inspiration is in foal to George Smith. We have not decided upon the mating for her next spring. "Huzazas weanling is a chestnut colt by Ballot. Our only other weanlings .are colts by Vulcain, a bav from Lucky Wave and a chestnut from Avistbu. Itun of Luck was the only other mare to foal tills year, and she foaled twins, which was bad lack" from a breeding and racing iKint of view."
