Ky., April 15.— The first division of the IT. C. -Bud" Fisher stable, in charge of trainer Alex Gordon, was shipped this morning for Belmont Park. The consignment included four horses, these being the f« ur-year-old Harry M. Friend, which has never started in a race, the three-year-olds Little Jeff and Radiant Light, and the two-year-old Star-Telegram, a bay filly by Short Crass — Dadele.

Comic Artist, the stables other Preakness Stakes and Kentucky Derby candidate, will be sent to Belmont Park, and will not go to Pimlieo unless Mr. Mutt is tumble to start in the Preakness Stakes. It ! is trainer Cordons intention to start Mr. Mutt in the Preakness Stakes and then send him back to Louisville to fill his Kentucky 1 erby engagement. FISHER, TWO-YEAR-OLDS. The remainder of the stable, which will leave Thursday for Belmont Park, is com- I ! posed exclusively of two-year-olds and, having wintered in splendid health and being well advanced in their training, will be able to enter upon their racing careers at an early-date. Trainer Cordon believes that from among the number will be developed a couple of stars. The list follows: Kelly, eh. c. hjr Neeofol — Marian Hood. SwcMip. I . e. by Fair llay — Album.

Bob Shannon shipped his stable of four horses in the same car with the Fisher consignment, the quartet being Passport, Skirmisher. Sophy and a two-year-old half-sister to Thihodaux. The four have trained exceedingly well, and Shannon believes they v. ill all make good before the racing has advanced very far. Coincident with these departures was the arrival at Churchill Downs of three of Fred Musantes horses that are to be campaigned j in Kentucky this spring. The horses came i direct from Mr. Musantes farm near Swan-. jianoa. Ya.. in charge of trainer Tom Allen. I Owner Musante is expected to arrive next Thursday. The outfit included Will Land, ] the Musante eligible to the Kentucky Derby; the seven-year-old My Dear, a frequent win- J iier in the past few years, and My Idol, a two-year-old filly by Superman— Kadean, half-sister to the stake winner Calladium. AN" i 1 1 Land appears to be in fine condition, but according to his trainer the son of Black Toney and Hildred is not very far advanced in his preparation and it is doubtful if he will be ready in time to start in the Derby. He has been receiving his training; over the three-eighths track on the farm, but has not yet been sent a mile at a pace faster than a two-minute pace. The colt is also eligible to the Crainger Memorial Handicap, to be run the latter part of the Downs meeting, and it may be possible to have him ready for this stake. TRACK STII.L HEAVY. Kentucky l erby training operations were at a standstill at Churchill Downs Tuesday morning due to the heavy track. All the Derby aspuants. with the exception of Wise ounseller. were out for canters and slow gallops, and none were :iskcd to do anything of a strenuous character.

The stable of Mannion Ac Mahoiiey. in charge of C. A. Mahoney, is a recent arrival from Nashville, Tenn.. where the horses had Uen in winter quarters.
