COE STEING WINTERING WELL NEW YORK, N. Y., Feb. 23 The horses of W. R. Coe are wintering in excellent condition in that sportsmans private barn at Belmont Park. Thirty juveniles and ten older racers comprise the string, which is under the care of Walter Creech,- brother of trainer Bennet Creech. The latter, who has been campaigning a stable at Agua Caliente for the last three months, is expected back next week from the Mexican course. Twenty juveniles by Pompey, equally divided between colts and fillies, form the majority of the younger string. This is Pompeys second crop. Last year the juvenile champion of 1925 sent out, among others, Osculator, Pompeius, Polonaise and Masked Knight, all good winners. Four colts and three fillies by Polymelian, a colt and a filly by Sweep On and a filly by Sun Briar complete the juvenile band. The Sun Briar filly is a daughter of Cleopatra and a full sister to Pompey. All of the youngsters showed high speed in their trials last fall. Their times for a quarter-mile over the training track ranged fror-:22 to :23. They have grown and filled out until they are among the finest looking horses of their age on Long Island. There are sisters and brothers to Laughing Queen, Polonaise, Osculator and Pompeius in the lot.
