The stable has been weeded out during the past month and of the band that came down here, but three will be shipped back. These are two-year-olds, which, with the exception of The Creole, are winners. Gymkhana and Parmachenee Belle, which were purchased at the Saratoga yearling sales, give promise of going on to better things. Tea Fight, a winner in her last start, came out of her race in such a condition that on the advice of veterinarians she was destroyed.
