XALAPA FARM 1924 STABLE « . Fourteen Juveniles and Four Older Horses to Bear Its Silks. ♦ Happy Thoughts Is Pointing for the Pimlico Oaks and the. Other Fixtures. Fine Band of Juveniles. ♦ • BALTIMORE, Md,. April 22.— Although Edward F. Simms sold six yearlings for 40,000 to Gifford A. Cochran last August, he still retained a considerable string, that he will campaign this year under his Xalapa. Farm silks. He also made purchases at Saratoga until altogether there are fourteen juveniles that are being prepared for the coming racing. These young racers spent the winter in Saratoga, but a few days back James McClelland and Roy Waldron went to the Spa and had them shipped to the Simms stable at Havre de Grace, where they joined the older horses that Waldron wintered there. With these fourteen juveniles the stable is completed by the fleet-footed Happy Thoughts, the filly that was purchased from W. V. Thraves for a big price; the unbeaten June Flower, both of these being three-year-olds; the four-yeir-old Banter and the five-year-old My Play, a brother to Man o AVar. This is the stable that will be brought to the races early during the Maryland season to bear the Xalapa Farm silks and the older horses have bad enough galloping already to make something approaching fast work possible. The two-year-olds grew big and lusty in the Saratoga snows and are a decidedly impressive band. As McClelland put it, they came out of winter quarters with something to work on and it will be surprising indeed if there are not some truly good ones developed. The best price paid by Mr. Simms, in the open market, for a yearling last year was when he gave Capt. P. M. Walker 0,000 for a handsome chestnut son of Trap Rock and Federal Girl, by Ultimus. This colt has been named Soldier True and he is credited with some impressive trials. Sweeping Away, a brown son of Sweep and Lady Eastman, by Masetto, was purchased from Phil T. Continued ou tenth page. XALAPA FARM 1924 STABLE Continued from first pnge. thinn for ,500 and most of the other juveniles in the stable were bred by Mr. Simms. The present plan is to have Happy Thoughts make her first serious effort in the running of the Pimlico Oaks one of the features of the Maryland Jockey Club spring meeting. This good filly is looking exceedingly well and should she race to hopes and expectations in the Oaks it is probable that she will be pitted against the colts in the running of the Preakness that follows the lilly fixture. My Play has been training soundly and it is probable that he will make an early appearance under racing silks. June Flower has not been nominated for any of the important stakes that have been closed, but she is doing what is asked of her cheerfully and she promises to be the same speed marvel this year that she was in the early racing days of last year.
