CHURCHILL DOWNS GOSSIP LOUISVILLE, Ky., May 21. Jockey B. Harvey failed to report in time to make weight on Orlova in the first race, and J. Heupel was given the mount. Trainer Webb reported that Useeit, the dam of Black Gold, had recently foaled a fine looking filly by Under Fire. The mare will be sent back to Black Toney. While galloping a horse belonging to Bob Frakes, jockey H. Gray was thrown and sustained painful injuries Monday morning. He was unable to fill his engagement to ride Bojul in the first race this afternoon. T. C. McDowell has sold Verbena, a two-year-old filly by Manager Waite — Azalea, to J. J. Ahearn and Joseph Warner, on private terms. The filly will be handled by Frank Wright, trainer for C. H. Knebelkamp. ThOmas C. McDowell will leave tomorrow for Baltimore, where he will undergo an examination at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. Mr. McDowell has not been in good health for some time. General Thatcher developed a boil on his ankle just before the Derby running and it probably had a bearing on his failure to show to better advantage. At present trainer Burch has the ankle bandaged. Nothing serious is expected to develop. Thomas Bourke, general manager of the Hawthorne track, returned to Chicago. Before departing he stated that improvements on the track were being rushed and that he expected many of the stronger stables rac ing here to send representation for the Hawthorne meeting, which is scheduled to open June 30 for twenty-live days racing. Trainer H. Webb, acting for Mrs. R. M. Hoots, owner of Black Cold, winner of Saturdays Rashford Manor Stakes, turned down a big offer for the speedy son of Black Toney, made by a prominent eastern turfman Monday. The colt is engaged in all of the years big stakes for two-year-old colts, and his owner believes if nothing goes amiss he will wiu an amount in excess of that offered.
