Twenty Years Ago Today Chief Turf Events of Dec. 18, 1902 Racing at Ingleside and New Orleans. The best that jockey J. Ranch was able to do the past few days was to pilot two winners. Jessie Jarboc, from the Goldblatt stable, continues her winnnig way. She accounted for the all-age handicap at the Fair Grounds today. Trainer Thomas Welsh, who trains the stable of Julius Fleischmann, announced that he will take a trip to Ireland. He intends to take his family with him. At New Orleans jockey Fuller rode the first two winners on the card. Not to be outdone the latest riding sensation at the Fair Grounds, jockey Gannon, rode the last two winners. According to an eastern report Hawkswick, the St. Simon stallion Henry J. Oxnard bought in England last week and shipped to this country, will stand in Kentucky next year. Mr. Oxnard has not decided where to locate Hawkswick permanently, but will, within the year buy a farm somewhere. With his big assortment of mares he is really in need of some place to house them. Sir Hugh, son of the mighty Salvator, and owned by Walter B. Jennings, took the third race at Ingleside with ease. Sir Hugh went to the post at the short odds of 1 to 2 and his backers never had an anxious moment. He indulged Lady Rowell with the lead until the half-mile post was reached, galloped to the front there and was hard held the remainder of the way to the finish line. The good horse Fred Ackerman is lost, according to the statement of John Skain of Lexington, Ivy., administrator of the estate of the late James Murphy. Fred Ackerman won at Morris Park in June, and it was thought that he had been shipped to Graves-end. Murphys papers showed no disposition of the horse and his whereabouts is a mystery. Skain found five head belonging to the noted trainer at Runnymede, in charge of Colonel E. F. Clay. Word comes from Lexington that Hernando, winner of the Latonia Derby, and which ran so well at Morris Park a year ago with Gold Heels and Watercolor in the long-distance events, will be trained again next spring, as he seems perfectly sound. Hernando, went wrong in his training last spring soon after being shipped east to fulfill his Suburban Handicap engagement. Soon after his arrival at jSheepshead Bay he struck his leg, and for jfear the injury might prove serious his owner j ordered the noted son of Hanover thrown out jof training.
