ADDLEY FARM CONSIGNMENT From Montfort and B. B. Jones Virginia Farm Reach Downs. Fino Band of Two-year-olds In This Establishment Heavy Track 2fo Deterrent to Training Activities. LOUISVILLE, Ky., March 29. The thoroughbred colony at Churchill Downs was considerably augmented Saturday morning when sixteen horses belonging to Montfort and B. B. Jones arrived in charge of trainer Kay Spence. The horses came direct from Audley Farm in Virginia and shipped in splendid condition. The consignment comprised twelve two-year-olds and four three-year-olds. They joined the division of the stable that recently arrived from New Orleans in charge of F. A. Gailor after a winters campaign. The combined divisions bring the stables strength up to thirty head and makes it next to that of John E. Madden, the largest establishment in local training. The three-year-olds that were included in the arrivals were; Lord Martin, the stables main dependence for the Kentucky Derby; Princess Doreen, a formidable candidate for the Kentucky Oaks; New Gold and Pearl Mesta. This quartet wintered at Audley Farm, where they were galloped every day and arc now ready to enter upon intensive spring training. Lord Martin in particular appears to be in splendid trim and probably as far advanced in his training as any other Derby candidate here, with the exception of Black Gold. Lord Martin is a chestnut colt by Sir Martin Mallard, by Star Shoot, and raced creditably as a two-year-old. He only started seven times and won one race and in two others was beaten by a close margin. The dozen two-year-olds are among the finest looking ever broughthere and.Jiaving been broken andischrrohfdraTe "readyto beT sent along for speedy gallops. Most of them were bred at Audley Farm and are bred to run fast and far. Following are their breedings: Cay colt, by Sir Martin Mallard, brother to Lord Martin. Bay colt, by Spanish Trince II. Lady Doreen, brother to Princess Doreen. Bay colt, by Star Master Lady Sweep. Bay colt, by Star Master Sand Fairy. Bay colt, by Sir Martin Kiluna. Bay colt, by Sir Martin One Star.

Trainer Spcnce confirmed the report that Bert Kennedy had signed a contract to ride for the stable this year and added that the boy would report at Churchill Downs May 1. Spence expects to take about ten horses to 1 Lexington to race. Quite a number of the stables horses that raced successfully during the past few years have been retired to the stud since last autumn. Rockminister has been bred to ten mares and will probably be returned to racing next fall. Fair Phantom, Resting Time and Oui Oui have all been bred to 1 Sir Martin. Miss Joy has been bred to Sir Barton and is due to drop a foal shortly. Rouleau is in the stud at Cary AVards place near Paris, Ky., and High Cloud is doing ; stud duty at Miss Elizabeth Daingcrfields place near Lexington. Ethel Gray, another of the stables former racers, foaled a filly by Sir Barton some time back and will be bred. back to that sire. Surf Rider, which carried "the stable colors in the 1922 Derby, has been fired and will not race again until the fall racing season. The Churchill Downs track was heavy Saturday morning, but this condition did not interfere seriously with training operations. A sharp wind blew over the course all forenoon and helped to dry out the track, which ought to be in good order for Sundays gallops. All of the Kentucky Derby eligibles were out for some kind of work. Lon Jones sent Glide and Sanola a slow five-eighths in 1 :13 and Pete Coyne allowed King Gorin II. and Bourbon Boy to gallop three-quarters at a slow pace. At Douglas Park, where the going was better, Alex Gordon permitted Mr. Mutt and Comic Artist to canter a slow mile. The condition of T. 13. Muellers Silvergrift, which arrived, from Havana in bad health, was much improved Saturday and the attending veterinary reported the colt out -of danger. Dick Thompson, head trainer of the Idle Hour Farm Stable, has written to Tom Young requesting that stalls bo reserved for his horses. Thompson stated in his letter that he has twenty-eight horses in training at the farm and that eight others are also quartered there in the care of William Hurley. According to word received Saturday the stables of J. C. Ferris and J. W. Foreman, now at New Orleans, will reach the local track Tuesday next. The stable of "W. L. Drake, which recently arrived from Havana, numbered ten head, and included Hullo, Mary Gardner, Ferguson, Nimrod, Black Deuce, Libyan Queen, Left Alone, Cautious, Emily and Huen. The mare Tuscola, owned by Mrs. R. M. Hoots, was shipped Saturday to Carr and Piatts farm, near Lexington, to be bred to Sporting Blood.
