DUNBOYNE APPEARS SOUND Crack Sprinter Shows No Sign of Lameness in His Preliminary-Gallops at Bowie. BALTIMORE, Md., March 12. That Jack Richardson is experiencing little difficulty at Bowie training the Belmont Park Futurity winner of 1918, Dunboyne, which Samuel C. Hildreth turned over to him last November, as all but hopelessly untrainable, is evident from the fact that three times within a fortnight Dunboyne has worked halves in better than 51 seconds. Dunboyne has not the best underpinning, so Richardson, whose specialty is making old cripples think they are as good as new, has been working him through the deeper going of the Southern Maryland Agricultural Associations course, which is on the far turn and near turn. Dunboyne has yet to take his first lame step and Richardson believes he will stand for at least a half dozen Bowie and Havre do Grace races, if, indeed, he does not hang on long enough to show some stuff at Jamaica in May. Dunboyne is not displaying the temper which made training him hard when he was a two and three-year-old. Richardson, when he can, starts him off with the horses of other trainers out for work and he goes right along with them. Getting Dunboyne away from the barrier used to be difficult. Richardson will not shoot high with Dunboyne at first. Generally there is on Joseph McLennans first day spring program at Bowie a sprint of five and a half furlongs for three-year-olds and over. General Thatcher won such a race April 2 last, beating Sog-garth Aroon, The Clown, Vennie and a couple of others. Richardson has another such race in view. If McLennan disappoints him in the matter of putting a suitable race on, Rich-.ardson will see what old Dunboyne can do in the ,000 Inaugural Handicap renewal. In whatever race he starts Dunboyne will be ready to do whatever his best may be. Richardson paid 0 for. Top Sergeant at Belmont Park last June, after that son of Cock o the Walk had been condemned as a future racing proposition by Dr. R. W. Mc-Cully. Bringing Top Sergeant back to the post at Yonkers in October, Richardson won five races with him before the season was out. Top Sergeant is training as well for long distance racing at Bowie as Dunboyne is galloping for sprinting. He, also, will start on the opening day of the impending meeting, April 1, if a favorable opportunity offers.
