j ; l ! j — ■ Twenty Years Ago Today Chief Turf Events of April 12, 1904 ■ — i Racing at Washington, D. C, Memphis and San Francisco. Cap and Belk the English Oaks winner, has been bred to Kington. Jockey Aubuchon rode his first victory for J. W. Schorr, his new employer, when he fin- ished first with Lady Moneuse last Monday at Memphis. Schorr was well pleased with the boys work. Within the next two or three days there will be a thinning out of the ranks of the riders at Memphis. Jockeys Troxler, W. Hennessy. Crawford, Jenkins and Fischer have already left for St. Louis, while Fuller, Crimmins and Dominick will depart within a few days. . Seth Jacobs, the Cincinnati turfman, is said to be gathering together an extensive stable to race on the northern circuit the coming season. Last week he purchased of C. R. Ellison the two year old filly Gilded Lady, the horse Bard of Avon and the three year old Esherson. The latter has been schooled through the field and . is a good jumper. The division of the stable which Jacobs is racing at Memphis is being handled by John Croker. Now thai summer weather is prevailing at San Francisco, there appears to be greater interest than ever at Oakland and the attendance continues good. That there is no falling off in the volume of business is shown by the presence of twenty one layers on the line. George Rose intended to put on two books yesterday, but the man who was to operate I one of them has not recovered sufficiently from a recent illness. Four or five carloads of horses have arrived from Ascot Park and the accommodations at the track are severely taxed. There remains only one more month of racing before the close of the season and the majority of the stables will remain to the end.
