T BELMONT PARK NOTES : : - John Loftus, -training on the coast, will visit Belmont Park in the near future in an effor to secure additional racing material for his patrons. J. H. Stotler stated after Balkan Lands victory in the third race that he would send the A. G. Vanderbilt colt to Rockingham Park to run in the New Hampshire Handicap, ,500 added event at one mile, to be run there Wednesday. The Balko gelding is in that event under 100 pounds. A valued part of the Appleton Memorial prize was the memorial cup presented by Mrs. Payne Whitney of the Greentree Stable. It is a challenge cup and it was agreed that Mr. Bain, the Canadian owner of Rock Lad, and Thomas Hitchcock, the owner of Rioter, will each have six months possession until the running next year. Trainer Brennan shipped for the Green-tree and Manhasset Stables the two-year-olds, St. Ives and Tintoretto, to Rockingham Park for racing at that point. Clyde Phillips, fighting tuberculosis at Tucson, Ariz., is getting lonesome and, despite the fact that he picked up six pounds since his arrival there, is anxious to hear from his old friends in this section. He is at the Pioneer Hotel at that point. Jockey Sammy Renick was the envy of his fellow riders when he edisplayed a port-table radio set he received from Ben Bernie, orchestra leader, as a present. Jockey R. Kastner, who was suspended at Jamaica for rough riding, accepted his first mount Saturday afternoon following that suspension. Jockey W. Reeve, a 100-pound apprentice who was loaned to the E. R. Bradley stable by Kay Spence, will make his metropolitan debut Monday. Reminiscent and Plea, owned by J. E. Widener, will be shipped to Chicago for racing at the Hawthorne meeting.
