TIJUANA HORSE COLONY Growing Fast as Opening Day of Meeting Draws Near. Toledo Shipments on the . Way Latonia Special Leaves November 6 Western Stables on the Ground. SAN DIEGO, Cal., November 3. The thoroughbred population at Tijuana is growing these days and hardly a day passes but what sees more additions to the colony. So many reservations for stabling room have been registered that once again president James W. Coffroth is confronted with the problem of accommodating the overflow. However, these will be taken care of by the erection of three new barns, which will be built on the grounds recently purchased by Coffroth on which he is to build his new race course. :: The migration of the runners from the Eastl, began last Tuesday when a special train of twelve carloads left Toledo, Ohio, containing many of the best equines that have been racing in that section of the country. On November 6 another special is scheduled to leave from Latonia, Ky., in charge of E. C. Taylor, who has been representing the Tijuana Jockey Club in the Blue Grass State. Taylor has advised the San Diego office that an unusual interest has been taken in the forthcoming meeting and that he has booked a far better class of horses for racing at the southern course than has ever before come to the West. Among those which will entrain with their stock are G. H. and J. O. Keene, masters of ihe Keeneland Stock Farm of Kentucky, with Fair Alice, Chittagong, Alice Blue Gown, Flowers of I Love, Secret Greetings, Lewellyn, Inquiry, Loveliness, Jeanne Bowdre, Miss Muffins, Lucknow and Comedie dAmour. Colonel R. L. Baker is another Kentucky owner who will campaign an extensive stable at Coffroths track during the winter. He will ship Judge Pryor, Manicure, Mildred, Power, Treasure, Lawrence Mannings, Jack Bower, Jim Daisy, Fair Orient, Conzel and Pif Jr. J. 3T. GO ODES STABLE. J. M. Goode was one of the first to sign for an express car with Taylor and will ship twelve head, in charge of trainer H. Cava-naugh. His stable comprises Sands of Pleasure, Wadsworths Last, Everhart, Marjorie Wood, Leslie, Taylor Hay, Herald, Lilly M., Smuts and Harvest King. Tijuana is fortunate this year in obtaining the riding services of jockeys B. Kennedy and W. Pool, who, from a point of number of winners ridden over the three L tracks this year, are the leading riders of Kentucky. Kennedy, who tops the list, is under contract to the Keene brothers, while Pool sports the colors of Colonel R. L. Baker. Pool is a brother of Earl Pool, a brilliant rider, who first came into prominence at Tijuana some years ago. The youngster has been a sensation during the Kentucky meetings and being an apprentice with the advantage of the five-pound allowance his services at the border track should be in much demand. The thoroughbreds owned by George Wing-field, C. B. Irwin, II. Tullett, George Miller, Lonny Tryon, William "Red" Walker, Arthur Brent, Charles Irby, Ilarry Keisel, Jeff Heard and F. R. Irwin have already arrived and are daily taking their exercise on the track in preparation for the long winter meeting, which will be inaugurated Thanksgiving Day. MOTOR COP IJf FIXE FETTLE. C. B. Irwins mighty sprinter Motor Cop is looking as fine as a two-year-old these days. A summer of rest, while the son of Uncle has been running out on Irwins ranch at Cheyenne. Wyo., has worked wonders with him and bodily he never looked better. Rifle, another which bears the Irwin colors, was given a like treatment and has picked up much weight on which to train. Advices from Maryland state that the J. K. L. Ross shipment will leave Pimlico at the close of that meeting in charge of trainer Henry McDaniel. This contingent of high-class horses is headed by the crack three-year-old Spanish Maize ; Sailing B., a contender for honors in the 0,000 Coffroth Handicap ; Hildur and Muttikins. Clarence Buxton, the Oakland horseman, will dispatch his horses at the same time. He has leased Slippery Elm and Irish Kiss from Bob Smith and will bring them along with Johnny Dundee, Mr. X., Sundial II. and others. Smith has placed his jockeys, L. Morris and W. Taylor, in Buxtons charge and they will accompany the horses to the coast. J. W. Marchbank, who purchased an extensive string of young thoroughbreds at the Fasig-Tipton sales at Saratoga, N. Y., last summer and has them now safely domiciled at the Tanforan race track, has voiced his intention of racing the best of his stable at Tijuana. He plans to make many stake entries in the two-year-old features and those most advanced in training will be sent to the south to measure strides with the best of their age who will face starter Morrisseys barrier. LIKELY CALIFORNIA YOUNGSTERS. Major Sven Christensen, a California breeder, has engaged stable room for seven yearlings of his own breeding. The juveniles are by his imported sire War Shot, and claim for their mothers brood mares of choice blood lines. The baby racers which the Major will ship south from his Meadowbrook Stock Farm have all shown much speed in their trials, and promise much in a racing way when they are sent postward. AVilliam Nestlehouse of Omaha, Neb., is collecting a most useful stable of runners for racing at Tijuana, and to date has claimed John S. Reardon and Adonis. These two were acquired at Latonia recently, the former costing his present owner fl.OOO and the latter ,600. Nestlehouse has engaged the services of trainer J. G. Bussey, who will handle his horses in the future. Some fifty horses that had been campaigned over the Intermountain Circuit last summer arc now at Pleasanton, being prepared for a busy season at the border track. These horses will leave in a body along about November 15 and should play an important part in the early racing, as they are said to be fit and ready to win at the first asking.
