CURRENT NOTES OF THE TURF Fornovo, which C. Buxton claimed recently, won his first start for his new owner. Gift is still paying his way, now thirteen years old. He won a race at Hastings Park, Vancouver, last week. Serbian has been gelded and turned out until the fall season in Maryland, where he will be trained by C. II. Smith for P. G. Magni. Jockey A. Johnson continues his stake suc- cesses. To date he has ridden the winners of thirteen stakes, these totaling the amount of 25,9G5. Jockey E. Pool made his presents felt at Windsor when he won with Sewell Combs and Gem. Both of these horses were saddled by W. Perkins. Walter H. Pearce, the thoroughbred which lias been raced over many of the big tracks, is taking part in the horse show, to be held at Aurora, 111., next week. August Belmonts Messenger, by Fair Pay Mission, winner of the Grab Bag Handicap yesterday at Saratoga, is the first winner for Mr. Belmont since his return to racing. From reports from the far West the Tan-foran track is rapidly being constructed. Carpenters are at work in full blast erecting stables and the track is being graded and railings and posts set. The Lexington Colored Fair Association annual meeting closed Saturday, August 12. During the six days racing thirty-one races were decided and ,400 was distributed among the horsemen. The special train leaving Windsor for Ottawa at the conclusion of the meeting there will probably be run in two sections, the demand for accommodations having exceeded the original allotment. Carabosse, a brown mare, 5, by Fairy King Cyrene, by Cyllene, won a mile and an eighth race last week at Hastings Park, Vancouver, B. C. She is owned by the Prince of Wales and was sent to Canada for breeding purposes. She won easily in 1:52 for the distance, defeating Marcella Boy and Woodie Montgomery.
