IS 1— Jockeys Redfern and T. Burns had two win- 2 2. ners each at Benning. 3 4- 4— Additional declarations from the Harlem I °~ National Handicap reported by secretary Nalh- 6-anson 6— 7— are those of Blues, Halcyondale, Eonic and Water Cure. The scratching cf Blues will be regretted, as it indicates his owner has *■ changed his intention of sending the horse to 2 2- Chicago. 3 3- , 4 ± 5 5 The arrival of the Fleischmann string at 6 Gravesend created quite a stir, Trainer Welsh 7. has forty two horses, two and three year-olds, the Fleischmann string. Among them are 1 1 number of highly bred colts and fillies im- 2 2 ported from England and are the progeny of 3 3 celebrated sires and darns, 4 * 6 6 6 Jockey Bullman rode two winners for his , " 7 contract employer, J. W. Schorr, at Memphis. , 1 Mr. Schorr uncovered what looks like on? of 2 the best colts in the two-year old division „ 3 raced in the south this spring. Molinos, a I * . . I 5 bay colt by Russel, making his first start, ran • away from his opponents in the second race. 7 The colt ran green and Bullman had all he 1 could do to make him run straight. Myron i 2 Dale took second money, but Flo Bob, which 1 ran third. v«as handicapped by the fact that t 1 J when the start came he got tangled up in i 6 5 the barrier and lost much ground. He has I « 6 , 7 shown that he has plenty of speed and might have made it interesting for the winner. Bu!l- mans other winner, and also Mr. Schorrs 1 was Beneficent, which won the last race from i ■ field of ten. Claremont was second and 1 Salto third. 2 I 3 4 The feature handicap at Memphis was won l I by Emshze. owned by Mrs. G. Henshall. Em shec displayed brilliant speed and disposed of f Harry New and Waswift in the first three-quarters and then stood a challenge from Hux-zah, which had to go round the others in the stretch. This effort on Huxzahs part was too much and the horse tired just when It seemed . that he had victory in his grasp. Harry New raced with Emshee to the three-quarters post, where he fell back to fourth place, but came again and got up In the closing strides to nose Waswift out of third money. Harry New has a habit of racing right up with the leaders in all his races and then falling back. He al ways makes a rush after this fall back, but the habit loses quite a bit of ground for him and he is a hard horse to rid*. Starter Dwyer, at Hot Springs, sent word that no two year-old should be allowed to start at Lakeside that had not been properly schooled at the starting gate. Accordingly his assist ant. Maurice M.cKnight, will be at the track each day for the purpose of giving the youngsters their lessons in breaking away from the barrier. Dwyer will remain at the Spring? until April 14, the day preceding the opening of racing here. The track has been thoroughly worked by superintendent Welles and the horses at the grounds are receiving their "preps" upon it each day. A number of American Derby candidates are among them. Twelve of these wi!l be at the Lakeside meeting, the majority of which are now here. Thirty-one thousand six hundred dollars will be distributed by the Lakeside Jockey Club during the twelve I days meeting extending from April 15 to April 28. inclusive. « 1
