1 FOREIGN TURF NOTES ! -- Croak, a chestnut gelding by Solario " Tetrill, which ran a dead heat with Guy Fawkes, a bay. gelding by Dark Legend Match Girl, in the Castle Selling Handicap at Windsor, May 13, is styled the "clown" horse and, according to an English authority, rightly deserves the cognomen, being one of the most queerly marked horses seen on the turf. A chestnut with a white face, no eyebrows and curiously colored wall eyes, he certainly is a funny looking racer. A hunter mare was taken to, see a private view of the motion picture depicting racing scenes. The bright idea was to see whether or not these scenes had any effect on her. They did, as she took fright and wrecked twenty seats, and was with difficulty extricated from the wreckage. The American jockey Lucien Lyne apparently has discovered the "fountain of youth." Lyne rode the winner of the American Derby at old Washington Park in Chicago in 1902, and only recently at St. Cloud, France, that veteran of the saddle rode two winners, displaying all his old finesse and judgment. Lyne is very popular in France, as he was in Spain when he rode for King Alphonse. White Cockade, Ogden Phipps unbeaten two-year-old, was vanned over from Aqueduct Tuesday morning, and will be a starter in the Juvenile, to be run on Thursday. Jockey Silvio Coucci will leave for Rockingham Park on Thursday morning to ride Plat Eye, and then move west to Latonia, to ride Gillie. The Bronx Italian will be back on Monday to accept mounts here. Lord Derbys Bobsleigh, conceded the only real rival of Bahram for the Epsom Derby, easily took the measure of Bahrams stable-mate, Hairan, in the Newmarket Stakes. -i
