March 17. — Le Tremblay opened its gates yesterday and with splendid spring wen ther and interesting racing nn exceptionally fine crowd enjoyed the afternoon. The association has made several improvements in its plant, making it a little more up to date than it was before. Com. mamler J. K. L. Ross was again looking the sport over. If he did any wagering it was on a modest scale and purely on the looks of the horses in the paddock. The Prix de la Maltourm-e. for three -year -old maiden fillies, saw the first victory for the Maeom ber stable this year. It started Palestra, a chestnut filly, y Prince Palatine — Adnna, and she won handily by three lengths, ridden, of course, by ONeill. This filly was bred by the Due Decazes. and sold by him at the Deauville stales of 192ft for 110.000 franca. She is not prepossessing in appearance, but has a smooth way of galloping. Hoth her sire and her dam are now in America at Xalapa Farm. The following race was the Irix de llle de Reaute. for three-year-old maiden colts. J. K. Widener sent to the post his initial starter in Franco for the year. Jerry Welsh evidently felt his horse was ready, for he told Rellhouse to go right to the front with him. As soon as the barrier went up Saint Pancras was off as Welsh had instructed his jockey, and he won easily, so that the first cable to Philadelphia announced a winner to Mr. Widener. The colt is a brother to Paa-dennis. being by Rabelais — Confection, and was bred by his owner in France. The Grand Prix at Nice will he run on the nineteenth. The Edouard de Rothschild stable is making a bold try for honors with three starters carded, among them Vatel, the dead-heater last fall with Ksar at He Tremblay. All the prominent jockeys are leaving for the Riviera Saturday. March Is. after the Saint Cloud racing. It will be a terrible scurry to catch the train de luxe from the Gare de Lyon. They leave Nice after the big race and get to Paris in time for a mount in the second race at Saint Cloud. March 20. A bit of traveling, to say the least. Duke starts his first for the Aga Khan tomorrow, a three-year old leased from Maurice de Rothschild. Haynes received considerable praise from the Freu.h sporting writers on the way he held his line in the race in which he was beaten a head by Winkfield, which we must say did not give hi-compt-trict any the best of it when they were locked together in a finish.
