THREE-YEAR-OLD CHILHOWEE . SOLD FOR 0,000 a e Swingalong Stable of New York Secures Crack Colt From Gallaher Bros. New Owner Plans to Ship Him to Fair Grounds for 5,000 New Orleans Handicap Later to Be Sent to Tijuana for the Coffroth Handicap LEXINGTON, Ky., Nov. 17. Chilhowee, unquestionably one of the best three-year-olds of this year, but which, by several performances of ordinary merit following those of brilliant ones, has been somewhat of a mystery, will hereafter race in the colors of the Swing-along Stable. The deal for him was closed this morning and the transfer entailed a consideration reported to be 0,000. Chilhowee is at present at the Gallaher farm near here, where he had been retired for the winter. The present intention of the new owner entails his shipment to New Orleans, where he will be prepared to start in the rich 5,000 New Orleans Handicap, to be decided at the Fair Grounds February 7, and following that race he will be shipped to Tijuana for a start in the Coffroth Handicap. Messrs. Sewell Combs, Allan Gallaher and John Gallaher, who owned the colt, were reluctant about selling him. They valued him at more than he was sold for. Ill heath of John Gallaher, on whose shoulders rested the burden of training and management of the colt, made the sale necessary. He was unable to give the colt the necessary attention and the work and worry entailed in managing and training him,, retarded progress to recovery of his health. John Gallaher is at present in Asheville, N. C, resting. Chilhowee has figured frequently in the limelight, during the year. His second in the Kentucky Derby and subsequent victory in the mile and a half of the Latonia Derby and his brilliant performance in the Latonia Championship Stakes, in which he reduced the American record for a. mile and three-quarters, and his preceding race, in which he estab-lshcd an American record for a mile and an eighth mark, are too recent and outstanding to need repeating. . It is likely that Mose Lowenstein will train the horse during the winter, as an effort is being made by the new owner to get that trainers services.
