JOY IN THE H9FFLER FAMILY Over Success of Belle of Eliza-bethtovn and Flycast on the Same Day at Tijuana. LOUISVILLE. Ky., Feb. S. There was joy in the Hoffler home at Douglas Park Wednesday morning, for Belle of Elizabeth-town and Flycast, two of the racers belonging to Mrs. Hoffler and her three daughters, "brought home the bacon" at Tijuana Tuesday. "I had a hunch both of our horses would win," said one of the Hoffler girls, "for I remembered they were both in the same day at Havana last winter, and sure enough down they came to the winning pest in front. So, you see, I somehow believed they were both due to do it again. I felt it in my heart." Belle of Elizabethtown and Flycast, along with Eminent and three other race horses, were left by the late Tom Hoffler, who died last fall, to his family. He devised that the stable be continued after his death and that it be taken to California by his trainer, William Cool, and son, Jimmie Hoffler, to run in the interest of the family. This is the first race that either Belle of Elizabethtown or Flycast has won at the Lower California track at this meeting, although Belle of Elizabethtown has been second and third on several occasions. Eminent has won two races there. During Tom Hofflers life the stable raced during the winter at Havana and for the past several winters Belle of Elizabethtown had been a good winner during the winter racing season at Oriental Park.
