The climax and close of the drama will be enacted at the course of the Maryland Jockey Club. Racing secretary Frank J.

The following are some of the establishments whose horses have taken up quarters at Pimlico or are destined for a campaign there ; Rancocas Stable, Greentree Stable, Glen Riddle Farm, Mrs. W. M.

The Ward stable, including Wise Counsellor, was due at Pimlico Monday. Carroll Shilling Is bringing ten of the G. A. Cochran horses to Pimlico instead of nine as previously announced. This stable Is strong numerically in Preakness and Derby candidates. R. J. Waldron brought the A. H. Morris horses from Middleburg, with many eyes on Rustic as a Preakness possibility. Twenty-four stalls have been reserved for the H. P. Whitney horses, but the make-up of the stable is subject to change, what with the practice of James Rowe of shipping his horses from Redbauk to Maryland for trials and returning them pronto if they do not come up to expectations. The Preakness candidates at present are Gonfalon and Klondyke, but Whiskalong and Transmute may enter into the calculations. J. S. Cosdens band includes twenty-five. Nautical has shown more than many of the three-year-olds in this barn. T. J. Healey will send the Havre de Grace representtaion to Pimlico to join forces with the jumpers of W. J. Salmon in charge of Silas Veitch. The jumping program at Pimlico will be especially attractive. Howard Lewis is pre-| paring sixteen steeplechasers for J. E. Wide-ner. "Specs" Crawford has a numerous band for the Queen City Stable, headed by the lied Knight, a three-quarter bred, rated as one of the best chasers in England last year. White Satin in this stable has gone amiss and will not be ready for the colors before Toronto. In the stable of Mrs. Kathryn Klkins Hitt are a couple of jumpers and some two-year- olds by Ed. Crump. T. Rod rock is in charge. R. B. Strasburgers band is made up mostly of foreigners puked up by Johnny Kermath when the stable raced in France last summer. Perkiomen and Houynhnm are the exceptions. In the twenty-three horses James Healey j Jr. has shipped to Pimlico for A. C. Bost- wick, is Melra. the four-year-old filly by j Corcya — Melmond that was drawn in the subscriptions. John Hastings will ship from Belmont Park a public stable which includes Bar Gold, traveling companion of Papyrus, Fane Lady, winner of a chase at the opening of the United Hunts meeting, and a couple of the subscription horses. Bar Gold has been schooled for the field. The Laurel Park stud holds a strong hand lor the Pimlico steeplechases.
