WHITNEY HORSES FOR BOWIE Entire Family Planning to Send Stars to Maryland Course. Workman, Robertson, Coucci, Kurtsinger and Hebert to Don Weil-Known Silks of Easterners. BOWIE, Md Nov. 2 The Whitney family, pillars of American racing, will all lend a helping hand to the Southern Maryland Agricultural Association in an effort to make the meeting which , opens on November 14 a big success. Thomas J. Healey, head trainer of the Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney string, with his efficient assistants, Freddie Hopkins and Jack Healey, and Bill Brennan, who handles Mrs. Payne "Whitneys string, are sending their stars on for the windup "of the 1932 eastern season. In addition, Mrs. Gwladys Whitney and Mr. and Mrs. John Hay Whitney will send the best of their strings after the four rich stakes to be run here. The Whitneys are well supplied with riders, having "Sonny" Workman, Alfred Robertson, Silvia Coucci, Charley Kurtsinger and Sidney Hebert under contract, therefore, it wouldnt be a bit surprising if some member of the popular New York family finished the meeting as the largest money-winning owner. Equipoise, beloved son of Pennant and Swinging, which is trained" by Freddie Hopkins, is probably the best-known thoroughbred that the Whitneys will race. His history is known to every turfite and as he has always raced well over this course, he should earn greater fame for his popular young owner. Whitney-owned thoroughbreds will be housed in special barns built on land near the old seven-eighths mile post. Other prominent American stables will also have their own private barns, and track superintendent Dick Pending is sparing no expense to make his guests comfortable. The demand for stalls far exceeds the supply, and no horseman should ship here without first being granted stalls.
