I JAMAICA TURF NOTES j s Fountain Pen, a three-year-old owned by Max Gold, died at Aqueduct following a morning trial. v Jockeys were notified that all claims of foul must be lodged with the clerk of the scales, who in turn will notify the stewards. Jockeys using whips at the barrier will be fined 5, according to starter George Cas-sidy. John J. Shevlin, secretary of the state racing commission, was a first-time visitor. Trainer Brennan instructed jockey Porter to return to Havre de Grace and Silvio Coucci to Jamaica for Mondays racing. Charley McCullough, of the Arlington Park Jockey Club, was a visitor. Sam Rosoff was also a visitor. John McCosker made his appearance, the first in a year. Dr. F. W. Ashe was a visitor and stated that he would serve in an official capacity at the Ak-Sar-Ben meeting at Omaha, which opens on May 30. Village Vamp, owned by Mrs. Frank Colti-letti, was bred to Ha Ha at the Garth farm in Virginia. Louis Strube stated that Rust, which was kicked while on the way to the post in the second race Monday, is the hardest luck filly he ever had anything to do with. Last fall she picked up a nail and was forced out of training. During the winter she inflicted upon herself some nasty gashes when she kicked through a glass window in the stable. Strube believes that with the kick on the way to the post the old cycle of three accidents will have completed its course.
