TURF NEWS OF THE DAY FROM BELMONT PARK NEW YORK, N. Y., June 4. Jockey George Breuning, under call to Henry Watterson, left for Montreal yesterday to ride at the Blue Bonnets and Dorval meetings for II. S. Wishard, who purchased several horses at the Sanford Dispersal Sale last Saturday. Martin Nathanson, manager of the Leona Stock Farm of John Hertz, of Chicago, was an arrival yesterday from the West. Beau Butler arrived at Belmont Park yesterday consigned to Alec Gordon, who will saddle him in his Belmont Stakes engagement. The colt shipped in good condition. It is more than likely that Lawrence Lyke will come east to ride him. Miss Nancy Maxwell, daughter of H. W. Maxwell, sustained several broken ribs and a fractured arm schooling high jumpers at her fathers home. Glen Cove, L. I. Decisive, which won through the field a few days ago, was hunted through the winter by Miss Maxwell and his victory was a popular one to the convalescent. Steeplechase jockey Escott was fined 0 by the stewards for pulling up Mercurius after taking the last jump in the steeplechase yesterday, thereby causing his mount to lose third place. The following horses changed hands via the claiming route this afternoon : Miss Cerina, Audley Farm, ,000 ; Orcus, E Krulewitch, ,000 ; Lally, S. Louis, ,000.
