HAVANA RACING MATERIAL Arrangements Made to Stable 700 Horses at Oriental Park Shipments Leave Soon. NEW YORK, N. T., October 20. There will be no lack of horses at Oriental Park when the annual winter meeting is inaugurated at that beautiful course on Thanksgiving day. Within the next few weeks thoroughbreds from eastern and western Canada and many sections of the United States will be heading for Havana. General manager Frank Bruen reports he already has arranged to stable about 700 horses and indications point to an excess of that number. The stable that will make the longest trip to the Cuban course is that of Mrs. V. Manale. This string entrained at Tacoma, Wash., after a campaign in British Columbia and other tracks of far western Canada and is now en route to Oriental Park. The stable is made up of platers and includes such ones as Dixie Carroll, John Jr., Midia, Shelbyville, Canderosa, George Muehlebach, Reydo, Cicely K. and Lomond Jr. The metropolitan shipment is secheduled to leave Empire City on October 31 and will be headed by the W. R. Coe and Lilane Stables with fourteen horses each. Frank Bray is in charge of the last named establishment and he plans to make several additions to the racers now under his care. Other eastern shipments will be those of Jim Evans, Willie Dugan, J. D. Millin, W. E. Suggs, Al Tempest, Roscoe Troxler, Jim Coffey, H. McLaughlin, F. W. Alexander and W. Egan. A special will leave the Akron, Ohio, track on October 20, while another will depart from Toledo on the following day. In the first-named shipment will be the horses of E. E. Major, AV. O. Stoner, C. Drake, J. Ar-vin, J. W. Pinkham. R. Padgett, H. Dougherty, J. A. Parson, W. E. Martin and J. Carney. The Toledo shipment will be a far more pretentious one. It will include the stables of M. J. Daly, L. Daly, J. F. Hines, T. Doyle, B. B. Rice, J. Kraus, Dee Hammond, J. Hope, H. W. Barnes, W. Cedar, J. E. Nagle, J. A. Strode, Blair Mock, A. O. Smith, R. Morrison, M. E. Thompson, F. R. Doyle, S. Jones, W. Short, N. K. Moody, T. B. "Walters, John Pangle and C. F. Place. The Laurel shipment will leave that course on the first of November. Thus far seventy-five horses have been booked. The Pimlico consignment now numbers forty-five, while at the close of Maryland racing at Bowie sixty racers are scheduled to leave for the Island. These Maryland shipments doubtless will be increased by later bookings. Ben Jones plans to ship fifteen yearlings and horses in training from his Parnell, Mo., farm on November 15. The young thoroughbreds are by Seth, a sire of many two-year-old winners at Oriental Park last winter. All shipments will go in seventy-four-foot steel cars direct from loading platforms to the Marianao track. Sidney Bender, superintendent of the transportation, has personally made the arrangements, visiting the various tracks throughout this country and Canada. Frank Taylor is now at Empire City attending to the wants of New York horsemen.
