j 1 , , 1 : ; 1 1 I : j ; II HIRSGHS BIG STABLE . . Has String of Twenty-Three for 1924 Racing Season. Sarazen Remains the Star of Establishment and Is Wintering Exceedingly Well. NEW YORK, N. T., Jan. 1C Max Hirsch was one of the successful trainers of 1923, when horses saddled by him were winners of 09,762. This amount came from different clients, for Hirsch sends horses to the post under various silks. His most sensational horse last year was the unbeaten two-year-old Sarazen, which raced under the colors of the Fair Stable, the nom de course chosen by Mrs. W. K. "Vanderbilt II. This swift-running son of High Time and Bush Box was raced ten times and his winnings totaled 7,880, although he was without any rich stake engagements. With this tremendous handicap the only juveniles to win a greater amount of money were St. James, Wise Counsellor, Beau Butler and Diogenes. Sara-yen had no opportunity to meet any one of these and the only reason for them leading him in the winning column was because of his lack of engagements. Hirsch has higher hopes for Sarazen this year and it is probable that he will be ready for the Kentucky Derby, where he will havo a chance to show just where he belongs among the best. The trainers that figured above Max Hirsch in point of money earned by their charges in 1923 were S. C. Ilildreth, Henry McDaniel, William Garth, Thomas J. Healey, James Bowe and A. J. Joyner. These trainera also had a decided advantage in the rich stakes for which their best horses were eligible. TWENTY-TIIREE IJf STABLE. Hirsch, who is at present in Kentucky, has twenty-three horses at Belmont Park that ho is fitting for the new season of racing. These horses will race for George W. Loft, Mrs. George W. Loft, the Fair Stable. Admiral Cary T. Graysons Salubria Stable, J. B. Smith, Sam H. Harris, Lawrence Water-bury and for Hirsch himself. Along late last year King Solomons Seal, one in the J. B. Smith string, proved himself one of the best handicap horses in training, and he is one that must be seriously considered in races over a long distance of ground next season. Autumn Bells, another in the Smith string, has been put to jumping and he has taken to the field so naturally that it is expected he will readily make his way in the steeplechases. Max Hirsch showed his skill as a steeplechase trainer when he developed the fast running Sweepment for Mrs. Loft, and this season he will have more material of that sort to work on. In addition to Autumn Bells he still has Sweepment, now an eight-year-old, and he has two other of the subscription jumpers that were imported. One of these is Britannic, a son of Ex Voto, the sire of Dan IV., that will race for Mrs. Loft, and the other is Mrs. Vanderbilts Bath-cowan, a seven-year-old daughter of Gold-miner and Cerf Agile. There are several stoutly bred two-year-olds in the stable, and the manner in which all the horses have been wintering suggests that an early start will be possible if it is the desire. Mrs. Vanderbilt takes the liveliest interest in her small but select string, -and it is her daily custom to telephone the stablo to know how her horses are progressing. A two-year-old son of Trap Bock and Etowah, by Alvescot, that was purchased last August, has been named Golden Star by Mrs. Vanderbilt, and he is one of the juveniles of the company of which great things are expected. SARAZEN STILL THE STAR. As for Sarazen he promises to remain tho star of the stable. A bit on the small size last year he has filled out considerably sinco being thrown out cf training for the cold months, and now he is a magnificent indi-1 vidual. The present plan is to have him at hand early, and that appears to be entirely possible. He is thriving beyond expectations and will be ready for the rigors of training when he is called upon, barring accident. Mr. Loft will be represented during the year by horses of his own breeding. His string is composed of four horses: a two-year-old celt by Star Master Tamarisk and a filly by Star Master Dottie Vandiver, and tho three-year-olds Pepp and Tiday. Mrs. Loft is represented by the junipers Sweepment and, Britannic. Mrs. Vanderbilt has Sarazen, a pair of two-year-olds, and her subscription jumper Itathcowan. Fluvanna and a two-1 year-old filly make up the Admiral Grayson pair, and besides King Solomons Seal and Autumn Bells, J. B. Smith has the filly SHlc Tassel. The Harris lot is comprised of Director, Composer and Prince Hamlet, all three- y tar-olds. Lawrence Waterbury has a two- year-old colt by Wrack Chapala, and tha Hirsch quartette are the three-year-old Bow-, ! man and three two-year-olds. j Following is a complete list of the Hirsct stable : Coutiiiuetl on twelfth iaj;e.l HOTS BIG STABLE Continued from first page.
