Vancouver, definitely set for Saturday, Juno P.O. some of the thoroughbreds in training hereabouts will be prepared for the northern meetings. 1 trig-bouse lost its grandstand in a conflagration last fall. l ut a new one is in course of construction anil probably will be ready for the first meeting. The second meeting at Brighouse will follow racing at the other western Canadian tracks- Hastings Park at Vancouver and "Willows Park at Victoria. Robert F. Leighton, racing secretary of the Pacific Coast Jockey Club, who is in charge of the racing at Brighouse. said just below leaving for the North that in all likelihood ten or twelve of the A. K. Ma-cumber ■la.lilti would be shipped North. Leighton will send full details of the sport to the Macomber representatives in a few days, so they can decide as to shipment. H. D. Sluvlin. who has the two-year-old filly Cheerio and others in a public training stable at Tariforan, promised Leighton to ship his string. Cheerio is a daughter of the old favorite Fulletta and though built on small lilies las a nice way of going and is likely to win anywhere. Superintendent Harry Couse of the Macomber training and breeding establishment at Mil a Monte. San Jose, has the Caiifor-nians horses in fine trim. Most of the band would get to the post early as they only need a bit of tightening to do their best. Six of the Macomber thoroughbreds are by the Sunstar horse Hesperus, brother to the stakes winner Hollister. Hesperus is the sire of the fleet Miss Star, which did so well last year in the Kdward Cebrian colors on Rasters Hacks. He died sevedal years ago at Charles T. Boots 101m wood Stock Farm just when it looked as though his stud career would be of the brightest kind, others in tin; string are by the Prince Palatine horse War Fame, Dick Finnells son Liberty Loan and the stake winner Star Hawk.
