CURRENT NOTES OF THE TURF Insure your horses before shipping for winter racing. Let Hartford take the risk. John A. Payne, general agent, Cincinnati, O. Adv. Marshall Fields moderate English colt Cistercian is classed as a sprinter only and is a bad work horse. He is a brown by King Georges stallion Friar Marcus Cissy Brown. Stephen Donoghue, the leading English rider, will not be with Lord Derbys establishment next year, Gardner having been signed up in his place. Dono-ghue, it is said, will ride free lance. The English site Romeo, a finely-bred son of the Triple Crown victor Flying Fox and Glare, together with the brood mares Katasha and her foal by Ulster King, have arrived safely at Auckland, New Zealand, in excellent condition. The stoutest bred horse and sire in England nowadays has been selected as Grave Greek, which is proving his quality. Not only is he by a Carbine horse from a Trenton mare, but his granddani, Thes-saly, was sister to Thessalian, a great stayer. Frank AV. Briton has completed arrangements with Harry M. Stevens, who holds the catering privileges at the metropolitan tracks, to take over the restaurant and food concessions at Oriental Park next winter. Frank and Harry. Mr. Stevens sons, will have charge at the Havana track.
