NOTES OF TANFORAN TRACK Bill Carrolls Juveniles Summered and Freshened at Pleasanton Invaders Coming From Canada. SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Aug. 26 C. W-"Bill" Carroll will be one of the first to ship to Tanforan for the race meeting to open September 22, Carroll, the maii who "discovered" Sun Beau dnd developed the Kentucky Derby winner, Morvich, is known throughout the country as a master in conditioning thoroughbreds, and he can be depended upon to have his atring of about ten youngsters fit when the fint field goes to the post in the coming session of the sport. Bill was in somewhat of a hurry last winter to have his two-year-olds win a few races, and rather rushed their preparation. Some of the fillies and colts, all of fashionable blood lines, earned brackets for him. When the wind-up came at Tanforan in the spring the veteran trainer decided to give his youngsters a let-up and they have been at Pleasanton all through the summer. Tanforan fans have a distinct recollection of Kate A., Genevieve M. and others of the Carroll colorbearers frequently finishing inside the money, even though they were not always on the front end. The fillies were remarkably consistent. In the special coming from Vancouver, one of the most formidable stables is that of A. C. Taylor, a well known breeder in British Columbia. Taylors silks were carried to many victories in the racing that closed in the north last Saturday. "Scotty" Craigmyle, well known jockey, is under contract to Taylor, who races under the nom de course of Taylor Stock Farm. Roy Lowe, also of prominence in race horse circles, is training for the northern establishment. The Nevada-bred Wahmonie, by imported North Star in. Nellie B., by Sir Wilfred, is getting along in years, but still was able to carry substantial burdens to victory in handicaps in the northern sport. Other runners in the Taylor barn are imported Leg Puller, the Suburban winner Dolan, Cam-panini and others. The stallion Wahmonie is of more than ordinary interest to Tanforan racegoers, as his maternal grandsire, Sir Wilfred, was bred at the Ormondale Stock Farm of the late William OBrien Macdonough. Sir Wilfred, one of the fastest horses that ever looked through a bridle, was a grandson of the unbeaten Ormonde. Del Cannon is coming up from San Cle-mente to Tanforan with three good horses formerly campaigned by Hamilton H. Cotton under the name of La Brea Stable.
