"BUD" FISHERS JUVENILES Running Fox Held in High Esteem, but Pride of Stable Is Bayard Swope, a Colt by Fair Play. LOUISVILLE, Ky., Feb. S. In Cartoonist "Bud" Fishers stable at Douglas Park is a two-year-old imported gray colt named Running Fox, by Grey Fox II. First Attempt II., which trainer Alex Gordon holds in high esteem. This youngster is showing fast eighths and promises to earn his oats early. Two youngsters in the Fisher barn by Peter Quince, one a chestnut iilly from Red Rose and the other a chestnut colt from Mary Hunter, appear as if they would race early. The colt is a particularly good doer and has all the speed of the Peter Quinces in addition to coming from a family of stayers on his mothers side. Another filly in the Fisher barn, by .Tim Gaffncy, from Jane Straith, a race mare of much class, is worth a bet about the first time trainer Gordon sends her under colors. Of course, the pride of the "baby" racers trained by Gordon is Bayard Swope, by Fair Play Alburn. A bay filly by Ambassador IV. Bold Lady is exceptionally well bred, but she has not been persevered with and probably is not being rushed. Two other fillies, one by Stornaway Queen Kitty and another by Short Grass Adele, are well considered by the stable connections. Mr. Mutt, the Fisher Derby hope, is doing nicely and has had no mishaps in his training up to date.
