KAISANG AND SNOB II Reported to Have Completely Re ¬ covered from Lameness Roth Expected to Stand Training for Spring SpringCampaign Campaign Lucky Hour Also Reported Reportedin in Fine Condition NEW YORK N Y March 20 When the last souvenirs of winter in the shape of snow and ice have gone and the sun and winds of late March dry the moisture as fast as it comes to the surface training operations out of doors will be the order of the day and those in charge of the thoroughbreds at the local race courses will be busy from sunup to sundown for the opening of the Jockey Club season at Jamaica on May 2 2The The next few weeks will be an anxious period for those having horses in their care that were retired from racing last year through lameness or accident The first few strong works will sometimes tell whether the ailment has disappeared but as a rule the supreme effort of a hardfought battle is neeeded to undo in a moment what it has taken nature months to accomplish In some cases horses that go into a campaign a trifle sore improve with work and ulti ¬ mately train and race up to expectations expectationsTwo Two of the best threeyearolds of 1922 KaiSang and Snob II were absentees for much of the year Their admirers will be glad to learn that there is every indication of their being on hand in the spring to make the campaign of 1923 one of the most event ¬ ful in years It is not generally known that a mile from home the day he beat Bunting for the Lawrence Idealization Stakes and that the Rancocas crack was able to get home in front largely due to Sandes superb horse ¬ manship How he nursed the colt all through the Inst quarter and finally lifted him across the finishing line a scant half lengtn in rroni of the Brookdale representative will long be remembered by those who saw the race raceClose Close observers thought Bunting was go ¬ ing stronger than KaiSang at the finish of the Realization and according to Sande his mount was shortening his stride Under less skillful handling the crder at the finish would have been reversed After the race KaiSang was very lame the trouble being located in one of his front feet by Sam Hil dreth than whom there is no more expert farrier among the trainers of today It is this qualification that has been a contribut ¬ ing influence in the success Hildreth has Continued on twelfth pace KAISANG AND SNOB II Continued from first page scored with horses In the period when he was racing a bunch of selling platers at New Orleans in the winter and all over the map in the summer it was his skill in caring for the feet of his horses that enabled him to win races with confirmed cripples like Yemen and Favonius FavoniusSnob Snob II went into retirement early in the year His early races were marked by daz ¬ zling speed The colts disability came as a shock to Mr Cosden who had shown his courage by paying 85000 for the son of Pres ¬ tige It was also a bitter dsappointment to trainer Billy Garth who was eager to win some of the important stakes in order to rec ¬ ompense the Baltimore turfman for his en ¬ terprise Snob II is expected to vindicate the judgment which prompted Mr Cosden to buy him at a figure that was unusual even in these days of high values for thorough ¬ breds bredsYet Yet another fouryearold whose early racing will be fraught with interest though bis underpinning was as sound as that of any horse that raced Jast year is Lucky Hour That the injury he suffered through having the frontal wall of his head smashed by a kick from his stable companion South ¬ ern Cross affected his breathing at times is unquestioned Those who have seen the splen ¬ did son of Hourless there is nothing of Ferole about him say he is in fine shape for tho campaign of 1023 Possessing as much speed as any horse in training and having tho capacity of lung and heart to carry it Lucky Hour is going to be one of the sensational horses of the year barring an accident accident3LVKSHATL 3LVKSHATL FIELDS COLOJIS COLOJISThat That the public will have its first chance to see all the best of the older horses In action in the Excelsior Handicap at Jamaica probably on the opening day clothes that event with unusual interest Fifty entries were received for the race when it closed re ¬ cently and included in the lot is practically every good horse in training The Excelsior will probably serve to introduce the colors of Marshall Field in this country as the good fouryearold Emotion Avill run in the name of her owner this year yearEmotion Emotion will be in select company as the eligibles include besides Lucky Hour Kai Sang and Snob II already referred to such fine performers as Grey Lag Bunting and Mad Hatter giants in any year Prince James whose real quality is a problem as yet unsolved Southern Cross a horse of rare size and breeding Best Pal the hero of winter racing Firebrand one of the sons oC McGee that is certain to improve Captain Alcock a good winner last year Exodus ono of the speediest sprinters in training Nedna winner of the Alabama Stakes last year Little Chief the best horse of his inches seen in a generation Flying Cloud whose form is bound to show improvement since he went to Rancocas Tryster one of the best of our horses over the Excelsior route Serenader considered the equal of Snob II by Hollie Hughes who has trained them both Pillory winner of the Preakness and Belmont Stakes in 1922 and a rugged son of that most rugged of sires Olambala nrainstorm whose racing last fall was sen ¬ sational and Devastation a shifty gelding wills light weight up upIn In addition to the above there is a galaxy of threeyearolds that would command at ¬ tention in any year In the band Harry Payne Whitney is represented by Enchant ¬ ment Flagstaff Picketer Revenge and Chick vale while the Greentree Stable names as its cracks Rialto Cherry Pie and Barbary Bush The Rancocas lot includes their three yearold aces Zev and Bud Lerner Joseph E Widener
