Twenty Years Ago Today Chief Turf Events of Dec. 13, 1904 Racing at San Francisco, New Orleans and Oakland. Trainer John Huggins has entirely recovered his health and will leaAe New York in a few days for a brief visit to New Orleans. There is a possibility that jockey Lucien Lyne Avill ride in England as a free lance next year. He is being urged in letters from Loudon to return with Danny Maher. E. R. Thomas is lamenting the fact that there is no mile straightaAvay at Belmont Park. He beIieAes that Hermis can beat Sal-vators record of 1:35. made at Monmouth Fark. With a stable of about forty horses S. W. Streett and Co., in point of numbers, haA-e one of the strongest establishments at New Orleans, but so far the astute doctor has not met with any marked success at the meeting. One of the best-class horses in the lot is Mizzen, which has started seAeral times, but has suffered from soreness in the shoulders that has prevented him from running to his best form. Mizzen Avas bred by August Belmont and Avas one of the best two-year-olds of his year, 20,000 being refused for him. He has speed and if ho gets into running condition, no doubt he will take the measure of some of the fast ones in the sprinting division. At the opening of the meeting Streett Avent to New York and brought back a half dozen that will strengthen his establishment materially. Streetts predicament is identical Avith that of many other owners. He has mora horses than he can handle successfully and Avould like to dispose of at least half of them. Morris Haymcn is also in the selling list, as are a number of the eastern owners. The problem Avill be to find buyers at reasonable prices and the market is certain to be anything but an encouraging one to those who have animals to dispose of.
