The stable of Phil Chinn, in charge of Charlie Patterson, was a late arrival Monday. The shipment comprised eighteen horses. Owner Chinn is on a visit to the Himyar Stud and will not be here until the middle of the week. Mr. Patterson reported that the three-year-old Cupid had sustained an injury to one of his legs in his last start at Churchill Downs, which necessitated his transfer to the Chinn farm to be turned out. Trainer Bob Gilmore got in with the Carl Wiedemann horses, including In Memoriam. Regarding the latter, Gilmore gave it as his opinion that the colt would not be seen under colors again until towards the close of the Latonia meeting. The colt is Improving, but his trainer is going Blow with him and is not going to take any chance of breaking him down. Frank Wright, formerly in charge of the stable of C. H. Knebelkamp, has been engaged to train the stable of W. F. Poison, the Buffalo owner. The horses which have been at Latonia since last fall include Pogo, Pablo, Pyx, Nightboat, and Pindy, a two-year-old chestnut filly by Von Tromp — Ruth W. The stables of W. F. and C. H. Knebelkamp have been combined and in future the horses owned by the two brothers will run in the name of the Knebelkamp Brothers Stable. E. J. OConnell will be retained as trainer for the combined stable. W. B. Finnegan, who has been handling the horses of W. F. Knebelkamp for about seven years, has opened a public training stable and already has under his charge the horses belonging to S. W. Richards and Mrs. M. E. Williams. Bo McMillan showed the best work at one mile, the Pendergast horse traversing the distance in 1:41%. Startle covered the mile in 1 :41% impressively. J. N. Camdens Dudley worked the fastest three-quarters by going the distance in 1 :12%. Crayon and Glyn each went five-eighths in 1 :01Vs, while Beautiful Agnes ran three-quarters in 1 :14. Apprentice jockey F. Hastings, under contract to the Gifford A. Cochran stable and regarded as one of the best lightweight riders in the country, arrived Monday from New York. Hastings will have no trouble securing mounts here as his apprentice allowance does not expire until August 1. The nine horses that trainer Carroll Shilling intends bringing here from Belmont Park to join the horses that have been cam-; paigning at Churchill Downs left New York Monday afternoon and are due here Tuesday.
