, i j i : FITZSIMMONS STABLE Has Charge of Twenty-Three Horses for Various Owners. Seventeen of the Thoroughbreds Are Owned by William Woodward of Belair Stud. NEW YORK, N. Y., Feb. 7. James Fitz-simmons, who for years has prepared and raced the horses of the Quincy Stable for James F. Johnson, will come to the races this year with twenty-three horses, but they are not those of the Quincy Stable. The largest part of the stable is made up of those that will bear the silks oC William Woodwards Belair Stud and other owners who are represented in the stable are the Dosoris Stable and H. W. Maxwell. Then in addition to these James Fitzsim-mons, Jr.. has three in his care in the samo stable. These are John Morans The Poet and Draft, and Frank A. Herolds Rejection. The Fitzsimmons training quarters are at Aqueduct, where the horses are comfortably housed and enjoying robust health that will make them ready for the training questions that will be asked within a short time. RICH IN FOREIGN BLOOD. Seventeen in the stable are owned by Mr. Woodward and, of these, nine are two-year olds bred at Belair stud though most ofrthem have a strong infusion of foreign blood. In. the lot is a brother to George D. Wideners St. James, the greatest money earning juve-. n:le of last year. This son of Ambassador IV. and Bobolink II. is a bay that has been christened Sir Ronald. He resembles his illustrous brother and has shown an ability to run fast. A filly by Stefan the Great from Isabeau has been named Tetrazzini and another of foreign parentage is Polly Keys, a daughter of Pommern and Silver Light, by Radium. There are two colts and a filly by Omar Khayyam, a filly by Ambassador IV. and two other fillies by Jim Gaffney. Altogether it is a likely lot of young thoroughbreds that Fitzsimmons has in his caro for Woodward. Probably the best of tho eight three-year-olds that complete the Belair lot is Aga Khan, the son of Omar Khayyam and Lady Carnot. On occasions Aga Khan has shown evidences of real quality and Fitzsimmons has high hopes for him this year. FIELDS FIRST JOCKEY. George Fields has been engaged to ride for the stable this year. He can do 102 pounds and has shown a skill that promises well. There are four other young riders under contract in John Dawson, 90 pounds ; Frank Hernandez, 102 pounds; Seth Lowe, 110 pounds, and a promising youngster, Ralph Hoade. whose riding weight is 102 pounds.
