1 Twenty Years Ago Today Chief Turf Events of Feb. 17, 1904. Racing at New Orleans, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Roehampton and Broomstick were today declared from the Brooklyn Handicap. The first of the get of the great racehorse Yankee was foaled last Sunday at Hamburg Place, the dam being the famous brood marc Royal Gun, the dam of Gunfire, Trigger and Raglan. It is a chestnut colt. Mr. Andrew Joyner has in training thirty-nine horses of which thirty-eight are the property of Mr. Sidney Paget, while the other the great Waterboy is the property of James B. Haggin. Hamburg Belle, Ormondes Right and Boxwood are the ones on which the stable will rely. Following his custom of recent years, Mr. Edward Corrigan will have a few horses in training for the campaign of 1904. In connection with the list, given out by Mr. Corrigan it may be said that he has some other horses on his farm in Kentucky that may be called into action later. But for the present the trifling band of eighty is thought to be sufficient to enable Mr. Corrigan to be worthily represented on the western tracks. Among the well known horses in this list are Cactus, Marta Santa, Lucien Appleby, Orfeo, Hargis, Mc-Gcc and many others. Huzzah captured the daily handicap at New Orleans after being outrun for the first mile, but wore the others down steadily and, coming with a rush through the stretch, was going away at the finish. Hands Across finished second but was disqualified for swerving toward the inner fence and interfering with Bon Mot. The stewards placed Hands Across last, giving Bon Mot second money and moving The Messenger into third place. The Carnival Stakes, at four furlongs, for two-year-olds, fell to Arch Oldham, which beat the lightly weighted Delaval by three lengths.
