YELLOW HAND AND HIS STABLE COMPANIONS NPW YORK. N. Y., April 16— A busy trainer at Aqueduct last week was A. J. Goldsborough, who has the horses of Charles A. Stoneham, C. H. Thieriot and George H. Bull in charge. All of the horses in the Goldsborough barn were given useful exercise and the trainer is confident that they will be ready when metropolitan racing begins. This time last year all the horses in the Goldsborough stable were sick with influenza and few of them recovered completely during the season. As a result of those mishaps the stable met with indifferent success in 1922. To make matters worse the Stone-ham handicap star Yellow Hand went wrong in his preparation and had to be turned out. It was thought that his lacing days were ended, but he has practically recovered from the injury. A veterinary examination within the next week or so will decide whether or not he can be trained this year. Trainer Goldsborough has Prince James rounding into condition In a manner that suggests he will be ready by May 1. McKee, Woodlake, Dry Moon and Flannel Shirt are working well, as are Timeless and Peddler, which went three-quartets in 1 :18. Trainer Goldsborough lias sent the two-year-olds 1ayman. Delmor, Vulnad, Jeroboam and Sly Minx half a mile in 52. Xone of the Goldsborough horses were asked to show top speed, but the times shown were good enough to lead to the belief that all of them are rapidly approaching racing condition. ♦_ . .
