SNOW COVERS NEW YORK OVAL Majority of Trainers Send Charges Once Around Course at Slow and Easy Pace. NEW YORK, N. Y., March 21. Trainers at Aqueduct and Jamaica braved the snow with their charges this morning. At the Metropolitan Jockey Clubs course, Robert Boyle, trainer of the Geneseo Stable, was one of the most active. He sent Luggage half a mile at a two-minute pace, while At Sunrise, Fantad, Rubio and Parsnip were breezed three-eighths in :39. Louis Strube sent Don Pedro a slow five-eighths at a two-minute gait. Panguitch, trained by Arthur Dudley, breezed a slow half-mile. Jack Goldsborough asked more of his string than most of the horsemen stabled at Aqueduct. He sent Greek God and Scout Master three-eighths in :39, breezing, while his juveniles went a quarter-mile through the front stretch in :26. The snow was falling heavily at this time and most of the other trainers merely galloped their horses once around the course and sent them back to the barn. James Fitzsimmons, who trains the largest stable quartered at the Queens County Jockey Club plant, stated that he would work his horses in the afternoon if- weather conditions permitted. Trainer Whyte sent Shasta Grafton, a slow mile, while Jack OBrien merely breezed the J. P. White horses once around the track. The latter string arrived from Freehold, N. J., last Saturday.
