CHEERIO A FAST YOUNGSTER SAN FRANCISCO, Cal.. April 20.— H. p. Shevlin. trainer of a public training stable at Tanforan. will leave next Monday with a string for Iteno. Shevlin. who was with S. . Hildreth for a number of years, will be the last of the "pioneers" to take his hcrses from the San Bruno track. The new course will be closed to training operations for the next few months while the construction of the grandstand and clubhouse is going on. according to announcement by general manager John D. Steiling. Along about August it is likely the influx of horses will be on for the first meeting of the Pacific Coast Jockey Club in November. Judging from the workouts by Khevlins thoroughbreds the track will be quite a bit faster than in the old days. The star of the Shevlin siring is the two-year-old Cheerio, which is owned by J. W. Towne. a business man of San Francseo, who recently entered the sport of racing. Cheerio is a daughter of the well-remenii-bered Mirthful horse Fulletta and the Ohan-tilly mare Antioch. Cheerio has worked so fast at Tanforan the fans are all "bet up" about what she will do in the meeting to open at Iteno June 9 for twenty-five or thirty days.
