. Twenty Years Ago Today Chief Turf Events of Feb. 7, 1904 Sunday, no racing. The racing firm of Chinn t Moore at Lexington, Ky., has been dissolved for a private consideration, Phil T. Chinn buying of Mc-Brayer Moore, Danville, Ky., the tatters half interest in nine two-year-olds. The string will race in the East in the colors of Chinn and will be shipped to that section early in March. Chinn has engaged Albert Patterson as an assistant trainer. A story is in circulation around New York that Arthur Itedfern would ride for Thomas and Shields this year. Shields recently engaged Herbert Fhiliips, the leading jockey at New Orleans, to ride for his firm, so that Itedferns engagement seems improbable unless Thomas and Shields have secured second call. As Red-ferns contract vith the Whitney stable expired last fall it is said that he may do considerable riding for the Keenes, who are without a jockey since the release of Lucien Lyne. Mars Cassidy has at last decided that he will wield the starters flag at the coming spring meeting at Hot Springs, which begins on February 25 and continues to March 19. For more than a week Mr. Cassidy, who is at his home in Washington, has had the matter under consideration. He has been named as one of the official starters on the tracks within the jurisdiction of the Jockey Club. The announcement of his appointment came after he had completed negotiations with the Hot Springs people and there "was a possibility of interference with his plans.
