BEGINS NEW STOCK FARM LOUISVILLE, Ky., March 12. Former congressman Charles F. Ogden, who has always had a fancy for thoroughbred horses, has opened his Pine Hill Stock Farm, near Anchorage, for the production of racing stock. At the recent sale of Emil Hers at Kingston Farm, near Lexington, Mr. Ogden bought the nucleus for his breeding establishment. He purchased Erla Lee, by Hindoo Bastante, for -one of his matrons. She had at the time a suckling colt by All Gold at her side. She will be sent to the court of Midway this spring. He also bought Mana Grass, another matron, by Short Grass Ida Claire, in foal to Wildair. Another purchase of Mr. Ogdens was a chestnut filly by Short Grass Common Law. This is a good-looking yearling and is a sister to Lord Bacon, a Kentucky Derby eligible, which was nominated by M. H. Howard and is being trained by "Bub" May. Real March weather, accompanied by snow, which fell here Monday and Tuesday, has slowed up training operations at Churchill Downs again. The trainers at both Churchill Downs and Douglas Park have gone back to shed work after several Derby eligibles had begun to show fast workouts for short distances. John E. Maddens three Derby eligibles aro in fine fettle according to that stables connections and, while it is hard to guess Mr. Maddens intentions, it is thought that he will leave one or more of these colts, Polo Ground, Gypsy King and Check, here to fill their engagements in the Derby. While the Madden stable generally is shipped East along toward the first of May, this year iftay see the Master of Hamburg Place do some racing in. the West with at least part of his stable. There are- forty-two head of thoroughbreds in the Madden string at the Downs at present.
