RAIN AT NEW ORLEANS Heavy Showers Change Track v Conditions at Jefferson. Parke Loses Apprentive Allowance Today Audley Farm Stable to Churchill Downs. NEW ORLEANS, La., March 9. Abundant showers of Saturday night and early Sunday morning served to change track conditions at Jefferson Park and render the going very heavy and holding for Mondays racing, when those horses with a penchant for tho mud will bo given their first opportunity to display their worth. The heavy going served to restrict training operations on Sunday morning to a metcrial extent at both local courses. Only seven days remain of the local winter racing season and Jefferson Park will close its gates Monday, March 17. The remaining portion of tho meeting gives promise of a good brand of sport and a. daily attendance that should exceed even the generous patronage of last week. Horsemen apparently are In no great hurry to leave for the northern tracks, for with the exception of those that intend participating in tho Bowio and Huntington meetings, the great majority intend delaying their departure until after April 1, when it is expected more settled weather will prevail in Kentucky, Maryland and New York, to which points most of the larger racing establishments will be bound. Jockey Ivan Parke, the riding sensation of the present local racing season, will become a full-fledged rider Monday, when he will lose his apprentice allowance. Whether this skillful lad will still retain his splendid riding form with the loss of five pounds allowance remains to be seen. Parke rode his first winner at Tijuana March S, 1923, when he piloted W. G. Jenkins Glenzar to victory. Regarding his future plans Parke will leave here at the termination of the Jefferson Park meeting with the stable of Mose Goldblatt and will continue to ride under the direction of that owner during the Kentucky campaign. FRANKMAN FOR DERBY. The extensive Audley Farm Stable, in charge of F. A. Gailor, was shipped Sunday morning to Churchill Downs, where tho horses will be prepared for the opening of tho Kentucky racing season. Frankman, which will start in the stables colors in the Louisiana Derby, was the only horse left here. The colt some time ago was turned over to Al Kirby to train for the Jefferson Park stake race. George Land shipped the following horses to John Lowe at Lexington Sunday morning: Mah Jong, The Leopard, Jose Delgado, Bonnie Morn and a two-year-old. Land .will continue to train Brown Trout, Uncle Sonny, War Idol and Molinero, tho remaining horses that Lowe left here and will transfer them to Lexington at the termination of the local meeting. Julius Reeder has received the Kentucky trainers and jockeys license blanks and these can be obtained from him at the Jefferson Park secretarys office. Jake Holtman will leave March IS for a visit to Lexington and Louisville, after which he will go to Huntington, where he has been engaged to start at the meeting that opens April 5. Holtman recently made a sale to John Randolph and Sunday ho turned over to J. Ford the four-year-old Princess Signal, which he had been training for W. J. Moore of Llano, Texas. TO RIDE FOR II. 1. 1IEADLEY. Jockey Eddie Martin has accepted an offer to ride for Hal Price Hcadley during tho coming Kentucky racing season and will depart shortly for Lexington, where the Headley horses are stabled. A. Zoeller has disposed of the three-year-old Flitlow. to Tom Scott on private terms. Tho filly was securcdx by Zoeller at tho recent weeding out sale of tho Audley Farm Stable. Edward Trotter, who during recent years has raced in Kentucky, is arranging to tako in the Maryland spring meetings and will shortly ship his stable to Bowie. From present indications the forthcoming renewal of tho Louisiana Derby on the closing day of the Jefferson Park meeting will attract a field in keeping with the importance of tho valuable event. Out of the list of forty eligihles it is believed that at least a dozen throe-year-olds will be named to start. Tho presence of Black Gold in the race apparently is not going to keep any of tho other prospective sarters from going to tho post. During tho past week a number of trainers of eligihles who believe their charges will bo well served by the route of a milo and an eighth have signified an intention ot having representation in the race, which will have a not value to the winner of close to ? 15,000. The field in the Derby will be drawn from the following list. Black Gold, Thorn-dale, lathan, Frankman, Derouda, Dossier, Itlnkey, Brilliant Cast, Invlctus, King ONeill II., Flying Fur, Blotter, Frcdcrlcktown and Leonard G.
