Mr. Shimp, owner of the International Stable, is a new recruit to racing and his entry into the sport dates to last summer, when he purchased a number of yenrlings at the Saratoga sales. Tha stable fared well at Tijuana and this success prompted cwner Shimp to try his fortunes on the Kentucky circuit this year. The Knebelkamp outfit was in charge of W. B. Finnegan, who returned with only six of the twelve he left here with last fall. The ones he brought back were I-ady Astor, Locust Leaves, Titrump, Cyprene, Mary Ellen O. and Molly R.. the latter being the property of S. W. Richards. Trainer Finne.m reported that he had turned over Montjoy, Billy Dunn and Virgo to Ike Tullett, who will race the trio at Omaha. The two-year-old Dell Evans was sold to aft. C. Buck by Finnegan prior to leaving the coast. The three that Bert Williams brought back were Dr. Hickman. Irinee K., and Bill of Lynn. Dr. Hickman went wrong last fall and did not race all winter.

Muller was at Churchill Downs Monday morning for the purpose of seeing some of his two-year-clds in speedy action and was gratified to see the progress the youngsters are making under the care of trainer Jim Moody. Rose Girl and Smudge, two of the best in the stable, showed up well in their gallops. It was an off day for the Kentucky Derl.y aspirants and there was no work of importance.
