LEAVE TIJUANA FOR AURORA Fourteen Carloads of Horses Shipped East With Majority Destined for Aurora. TIJUANA, Mexico, April 4. — Fourteen carloads of horses entrained for the East today, with Aurora the principal destination. Among those shipping to that point are A. A. Ba-roni, C. lrby, H. McConnell and Benny Creech. The powerful Kilmer Stable will be sent to Havre de Grace, while C. B. Irwin and M. Syufy will go to Salt Lake City and C. C. Emmert to Omaha. Starter Marshall Cassidy went through the meeting with rather a unique record. He did not place a horse on the schooling list during the 102 days, despite the fact that he had numerous bad actors to contend with. Horsemen racing here were loud in their praise of his work. Jockey N. Stevens, who has been showing steady improvement, finally arrived on the last day and piloted three of the first five winners. All paid liberal odds. Stevens is under contract to M. Syufy. Bon Homme bids fair to become one of the most useful sires in the West. He produced the juvenile stake winner Alexander Pant-ages and also Bon Fille, winner of two races here. These are the first of the get of Bon Homme to race. He is owned by the Meadow-brook Bf Ma and stands at C. A. Hartwells farm at Pleasanton. The second largest crowd of the year was out Sunday to bid adieu to the thoroughbreds until next winter. Seats were at a premium in the grandstand and clubhouse and wagering was heavy in both mutuel machines and hooks.
