Knight has left Cincinnati for San Francisco to ride for the Chinn and For-sythe stable during the winter meetings in California. Pink Coat, the American Derby winner of 1898, has broken down completely and has been retired to the stud at Woodford and Buck-ner farm near Paris, Ky. Word came from Covington, Ky., today that Gold Ornament, one of the best two-year-olds of the year, had to be destroyed after being badly injured in an attempt to have the filly fired.
