CHILHOWEE AT THE DOWNS L a t o n i a Championship Stakes Winner and Record Breaker Arrives at Louisville Track. LOUISVILLE, Ky., Oct 20. Chilhowee, winner of the Latonia Championship Stakes, and holder of three Latonia track records, including two American records, arrived isafely Monday morning; at Churchill Downs together with the other members of the Gallaher Brothers string. That included Menifee, Glyn, Mainspring, Muskeg and Becky Thatcher. " Chilhowee arrived ,here in splendid con. dition and apparently showed no effects of ihis race Saturday. Local racegoers will probably be privileged to see the Gallaher whirlwind under colors next Saturday, when he starts in the Falls City handicap, in which he is asked to shoulder top weight of 130 pounds. This is four pounds more than he carried in the Latonia Championship, and while it looks like a, lot of weight for a three-year-old to shoulder, it will not bother the crack son of Ballot and Bourbon Lass when he measures strides with the other cracks in the big race Saturday. Trainer J; C. Gallaher may send Chilhowee to Laurel to fill his engagement in the rich Washington Handicap at one mile and a quarter, to be run over the Maryland track, Nov. 1. Sarazen is also eligible to that stake, and the owners of Chilhowee are more than anxious for their colt to again measure strides with Mrs. Vanderbilts fine gelding, to wipe out, if possible, Chilhowees defeat in the Third International Special, won by Sarazen. John Gallaher yesterday reiterated the determination of he and his brother to dispose of all their horses in training before the close of the Kentucky fall season, so that it is possible that Chilhowee will soon be racing ; under new colors. Just what price would be demanded for Chilhowee Gallaher will not mention, but he said it would be considerably higher than the ,000 offered by a well-known trainer prior to the running of the Latonia Derby. Those close to the Gallaher Brothers believe that if any one wants Chilhowee he will have to part with at least 00,000 for the colt Churchill Downs presented a busy scene Monday with horses arriving and prepara. tions for Thursdays opening going on apace. Continued on twelfth page. CHILHOWEE AT THE DOWNS Continued from first page. There is nothing of an outstanding nature .that requires attention to improve Churchill Downs which is now the last word in what racing courses should be and is only in need of a few finishing touches to make it a thing of beauty. Col. Winn and Col. Vennie made a tour of inspection of the plant and found everything satisfactory. They were well pleased with the work on the two new barns, which were completed in record time. The twenty-stall-shed row barn constructed on part of the site of the large barn destroyed last week was finished Sunday and before nightfall the structure safely housed the "seventeen horses belonging to Mose Shapoff. The other new barn in the southwestern corner of the grounds is a thirty-six stall building and was completed Monday afternoon. Two. special horse trains, each of thirteen cars, arrived Monday from Latonia. Among the stables to arrive on the specials were those of John Lowe, J. M. Goode, J. McKin-ney, R. T. Watts, T. C. McDowell, J. B. Partridge, Jim Everman, J. B. Respess, Williams Brothers, J. N. Camden, Will Perkins, M. Gpldblatt and W. C.

The shipment included the crack filly, Princess Do-reen, which will be seen under colors a number of times at the forthcoming meeting. The stable being handled by Pete Coyne was another arrival Monday. Coyne announced that Jefferson Livingstons Actuary, which went wrong at Latonia about three weeks ago, had been" sent to Dr. McCully in New York for treatment The stable of C. B.
