! j j | j ! | , I j I [ | j j ; Twenty Years Ago Today Chief Turf Events of April 10, 1904. Sunday; no racing. Johnny Fay has kept Ed Tierney eligible for the Latouia Derby. This colt is at Memphis and it is said has wintered well. Fay won three races with him last year. Paul Clifford, A. L. Astes recent purchase out of a selling race, will likely be sent West [with a division of the stable that will race I. in Chicago this year. Mr. Aste is well pleased with the horse and the general opinion at Benning is that Paul Clifford is a cheap horse at ,100. Dr. W. D. Sewell, who has had some success with the two-year-old filly Mon Amour, has about decided to enter the cross-country line of racing. He has one candidate in view, Eloim. This is a slashing big horse of considerable weight carrying ability and high speed, but lately he has become roguish and erratic. Oarsman, of Frank Regans string, which was reported recently as having suffered in health as a result of his long trip from the coast to New York, is said to have rounded to and should come to the races a good hor=e. With him came the shifty three year-old Dick Turpin, Namtor, McGrathiana, Nevermore, Princess Titania and Cunard. Most of the hors?s were stiffened up somewhat after the journey and w ere off their feed." There has been a return of their appetites and with the track available it is thought that a few gal tlops will put them back in first class condition. Oarsman, while not a candidate in the Carter, is in the Queens County Handicap, to lie run the last day of the Aqueduct meeting, and he will no doubt be ready to go to the post before that time.
