RANCOCAS TWO-YEAR-OLDS ♦ ■ Twenty-Four Juveniles Preparing Under Dave Leary at Belmont. + . Older Hones Will Not Be Brought from Farm Until I.ate In April— Nineteen of Stables Youngsters Are Fillies. ♦ NKW YORK, N. Y., April 5.— While Samuel C. Hildreth has announced that he will not bring the big Rancocas string down from Harry F. Sinclairs New Jersey farm until the last week in April, there is already a considerable band making ready at Belmont Park. These are the two-year-olds that are to bear the silks of the racing commissioner this year. They are in the care of Dave Ieary, assistant trainer to Hildreth, and there are twenty-four in the band. This in itself is an exceedingly large stable for any sportsman, but it only comprises the two-year-olds that will be seen under the white and green colors this year. In addition to these are several others at the farm that will be brought on with the older horses. Leary has had these young racers in his care for a considerable time and the chief reason for their being at Belmont Turk, rather than at the farm with the other and older horses, is that they may be educated at the ground over which they are to race. It is always an important part of the education of a two-year-old to teach him the ways of the starting barrier, and that [a best accomplished on a race track. Then it is well to teach the youngster how to handle himself in company, and that again is easier of accomplishment on a race track, where there are several different trainers with their horses out at the same time. Leary is ably assisted in his education of the two-year-olds by Karl Sande, first jockey for the stable, and they promise to know their lessons well when actual racing begins. FUTURE RANCOCAS 3IATKOXS. Several in the big string have shown an ability to run and for the most part they are a well-behaved band. Of the twenty-four there are nineteen fillies and they we: e purchased with a view of becoming valuable brood mans at Rancocas. Mr. Sinclair is going into breeding seriously and he has already shown some of his own production In races. One last year was Rigel, a son of Ballot and Pictons Pride, that has been named for the Kentucky Derby. The Rancocas Stable has been playing an important part in racing for some time, but this year more than ever before the two-year-old division will attract much attention. The older horses have thoroughly established themselves and it would seem that the juveniles will be fully up to the high standard of the establishment.
