He reported that forty-five foals have arrived at the farm this spring. The latest one is a bay colt by Chicle Cadiola. and therefore a brother to Cad-Fly. Mr. Beard ventured the opinion that the Whitney .-table would send both Color Sergeant and Macaw to Louisville to start in the Derby ;u:d. according to till reports, both colts are training famously for the big race. Jockey Zucchini, under contract to the Idle Hour Stock Farm Stable, arrived today from Louisville and will ride for J. C. Milam for the remainder of the Lexington meeting. Jockey H. Kaiser sustained a badly bruised foot when a two-year-old in the stable of J. M. Hukill that he was galloping, ran into the inner rail. S. T.

Jockey G. Johnson reported ill after riding Jane C. in the first race, and cancelled the remainder of his mounts for the afternoon. The stewards had jockeys W. Pool and L. Pichon before them prior to the opening race for alleged rough riding they had indulged ;n Saturday. Pichon charged Pool with having attempted to grab his bridle, and Pool made a counter charge that Pichon impeded him. Both were given a sharp lecture by stewards Bradley and Grady and warned that an infraction of the rules would mean a recommendation that their licenses be revoked. Mose Goldblatt will leave for the East the latter part of this week to confer with trainer James Bowe about the transfer of a number of the Harry Payne Whitney horses to be added to the western and Kentucky string raced by Mr. Whitney, that Goldblatt will be in charge of.
