ZIEGLER STABLE : • Twenty of Eastern Establishment to » Race at Arlington Park. • Spinach Star of the Older Division — First t Crop of Our General Among the Two-1 Year-Olds to Sport Silks. • Clyde Phillips, who came from New York i last week to saddle Sunny Lassie for the I Illinois Oaks, in which the Sun Flag filly made a bad showing, probably because she I did not care for muddy* going, which she I has not before been asked to negoiate, has i returned to New York to ready up the main i divisions of the stables of Mr. and Mrs. William Ziegler for a trip to Arlington Park. • Before starting back Phillips told Roy Car-ruthers, general manager of Arlington Park, , that he would have twenty horses at the I north side course by the end of the month. Another division of the Ziegler stable will I race at Latonia. All horses of the male persuasion in the charge ot Phillips race under the purple jacket of Mr. Ziegler. The females bear the scarlet and green of the Middleburg Stable. "Middleburg Stable" is Mrs. Zieglers racing alias. She and her husband are the owners of Burrland, just to the south of Middleburg, which is one of the finest places in the Virginia piedmont. They are exploiting the stallions Our General, Espino and Polydor there, and the smartest two-year-olds they have developed this season are of Our Generals first crop. One of these "Our Generals," a sorrel colt called Phantom General, whose mother is Phantom Blue, Phillips predicts, will take plenty of beating August 1 in the Post and Paddock revival at six furlongs, which should gross more than 0,000, and in any event, be one of the richest specials for two-year-olds ever run in the West. The other Ziegler Post and Paddock eligibles are: Peacock Alley, Americana, Lead Off, Phantom Legion, The Crane and In Command. Americana and The Crane are winners. Mrs. Ziegler has General Advance, Stimila, Marcasite, Flying, and White Flyer in the Lassie, at five furlongs and a half, for fillies, that should gross close to 0,000 July 8. General Advance, Flying and I Marcasite are winners, Marcasite of two races. The "big horse" of the establishment is Spinach, which won upward of 00,000 last fall, although he was one of the horses Sun Beau whipped in the Hawthorne Gold Cup revival. Phillips declares that Spinach, a ! son of Sir Martin and Sweet Thyme, is the best horse he ever trained. Spinach will tackle the other stars of three years old j and over in renewals of the 0,000 Stars and Stripes and 0,000 Arlington Handicaps and the 0,000 Arlington Cup. I The veteran George Ellis, for many years jockey of the main division of the Green- I tree Stable, will come on to do Phillips ■ riding. "Knot Hole" Ellis is the name the ! talent call this particular jockey because Of his penchant for driving mounts through I narrow openings to save ground. * , —
