OAK TREE STABLES SUCCESS Victory of Bahamas Indicates Establishment Will Figure in Future Agua Caliente Racing. AGUA CALIENTE, Mexico, Feb. 23 William Hartman, owner and trainer of the Oak Tree Stable, is duplicating his feat of declaring war on the purses set up by the Agua Caliente Jockey Club in the same manner in which the aforementioned stable did at Tan-foran last fall when they took down the major portion of thirteen races. Coming to Caliente this winter, the Oak Tree Stable had furnished numerous winners, but the outstanding feat to date is the victory of Bahamas in the Fairfax Handicap Sunday, when in making his first appearance since the fall at Tanforan, he romped the six furlongs in 1:12, fiat, carrying 110 pounds to defeat such good ones as Sharp Thoughts and Cabezo. It was this performance that caused the son of Bon Homme Covering to receive a severe cut in the future book price for the 0,000 Agua Caliente Handicap, to be decided March 20. When Bahamas first made his appearance at Agua Caliente last winter as a two-year-old, he was found in cheap claiming races. E. Bryon Seins purchased the mare, Covering, from C. A. Hartwell, breeder of Bahamas while in foal to Bon Homme. Hartman and Seins were in partnership at the time. When they severed relations, Hartman took over Bahamas and four other yearlings and has developed the bay gelding into an outstanding threat for the major stakes to be decided this winter.
