1 HAWTHORNE TURF NOTES I s J. Graham Brown, of Louisville, and Robert Hunter, of Owensboro, were Kentucky turf enthusiasts at Hawthorne today. They are here for short visits. Tom Young, Lincoln Fields and Washington Park, track superintendent spent the entire day at Hawthorne Wednesday, going over stall requirements of some of the larger stables for the Lincoln Fields and Washington Park fall meetings, with owners or trainers of the establishments. Jockey Eddie Martin has been engaged to assist in the breaking of the score of yearlings that will be prepared for racing under Mrs. J. D. Hertz colors. The youngsters will receive their early training at Arlington Park. The Audley Farms Royal Blunder has been nominated for the 0,000 added Chicago Derby to be run on the closing day of the Hawthorne meeting. The several R. C. Thatcher yearlings in Kentucky will not be taken up before fall by trainer W. Sims and with other of the Thatcher horses will go to one of the winter racing points. Polydorus, which is to take up 120 pounds in the Illinois Handicap Saturday, had his final important preparation for that mile and one-sixteenth engagement when he worked nine furlongs easily in 1:54 between races this afternoon. He went the quarter in :24, half mile in :49, three-quarters in 1:15 and the mile in 1:41. J. F. Patterson, trainer of the Audley Farm Stable, left for Washington by plane and will go to Audley Farm at Berryville to make an inspection of the yearlings before returning here.
