GARTHS VISIT NEW YORK Virginia Horsemen Report Horses in Good Condition at Charlottesville and Warrenton. NEW YORK, N. Y., Jan. 26. Among the recent visitors at the Jockey Club offices were William Garth and his son Woods, who had run up from Virginia for a few days. The former is spending the winter at his home farm near Charlottesville, while Woods Is in charge of the Warrenton Stud of J. S. Cosden. Both the Garths report their charges in fine condition. William Garth, who bought Meridian, by Broomstick, in partnership with his son, the late Lewis Garth, says he has some fine yearlings by that horse. They look like runners already. Meridian never had a chance before he fell into the hands of Mr. Garth, as he was kept in Maryland, where he had access to few good mares. Other horses at Charlottesville that are in the stud this season arc Crimper, Blazes and Berrilldon, the latter the property of the estate of Lewis Garth. William Garth is well pleased with the prospects he has in hand for the coming season and believes he has a number of us3-ful horses. His fastest two-year-old, according to yearling trials, is by Trap Rock Star Emerald, by Sunstar, that was bought at the Pagebrook sale of P. M. Walkers , yearlings at Saratoga last August. He worked a quarter as a yearling in 22. As Lord Baltimore IL, the best two-year-old in the. Cosden stable last year, was by Trap Rock it would appear that this brother to Tracery and half brother to Top Hat wouia make good again this season.
