! CASEY TRAINS FOR MARKS Succeeds Mose Lowenstein in Charge of Big Le Mar Stock Farm String. LEXINGTON, Ky., Jan. 12. Leo J. Marks of Columbus, Ohio, today met Charles J. Casey, widely known eastern trainer, in Lexington and engaged him to train his horses, as successor to Mose Lowenstein, who is now at Miami with a string of his own. The horses, twenty-seven of them, are now in winter quarters at Mr. Marks Le Mar Stock Farm, near Lexington. During the next few days trainer Casey will go over them carefully and will select the horses to be discarded from the string. There will probably be three or four of these. The others will be shipped to Pimlico about January 20, and will there be trained for spring racing. The program is to race through the Maryland season and then in New York until the opening of the Arlington Park meeting. Unless something particularly interesting for a campaign at Saratoga shows up, the horses will remain at Chicago until the Maryland meetings in the autumn. The stable has a candidate for the Preak-ness in a big chestnut three-year-old which has never started. His name is Miscalculate, and he is by Upset, from imported Royal Mint. Fred Morris, who handled the Le Mar farm yearlings last season, and who had Miscalculate in his charge also, says he is a good racing prospect. Morris says the now two-year-olds in the Le Mar string, all of which he broke, are quite promising. A number of entries have been made at Pimlico. Messrs. Marks and Casey will be in Lexington for the next several days.
