NEW TRACK AT LE MAR FARM Five -Eighths of a Mile Training Track to Be Constructed — Marks Inspects Stock. LEXINGTON, Ky., May 9.— Harry Hart has ordered the car for the shipment next Thursday of the Le Mar Stock Farm string of horses in training at the Kentucky Association track to Washington Park, Chicago. The horses are Misguide, Maroon, Morsel, Madwind, Miscalculate, Mocker, Marvan, -Morality, My Man, Man Handle, My Turn, Mayco, Monnsan, My Kind and Marset. Silver Cord, property of Mr. Hart, ia also |n the string. These horses were inspected yesterday by Leo J. Marks, president of the Le Mar Stock Farm, Inc., and he was highly pleased with their appearance and condition. Before returning to his home at Columbus, Ohio, Mr. Marks made an inspection of Le Mar Stock Farm and approved plans and contracts for construction of a training track to be five furlongs, and a training barn of thirty stalls, with enclosed shed. Since Harry Hart took over the manage- | ment of the farm and the training of the horses last October, many improvements have been made at the farm and the general appearance of the horses now is such that Mr. Marks was highly elated with all that has been done. The work of building the track will begin this week and the training barn is to be erected during the summer. The yearlings are to be broken over the new track and at the close of the campaign this year the horses in training will go into quarters in the new barn instead of at the Kentucky Association track. Mr. Marks was especially well pleased with the appearance of the yearlings and foals by his favorite race horse Misstep, now premier sire at his establishment.
