The Whitney thoroughbreds are noted for their good looks, and in this years band the average in the way of pulchritude is sustained. As for Mariou-tte. whose dam. Mauviette. is by Mexican, the trainers at Gravosond say that nothing like her lias been seen at that famous old course in a generation. The Rosedale is certain to lie a fine race.
