1 PIMLICO TURF NOTES ? « ■ • Identification of the three-year-old filly Charming Mary, owned by G. O. Russell was lacking before the first race on Saturday and the stewards ordered the filly withdrawn. A. J. Joyner, chief trainer of the George D. Widener stable, sent word that he was shipping Salamis and Double Back here from New York to fill engagements. Marshall Smith shipped his useful distance performer Fight Back to Narragansett Park to fill engagements at the New England track. The useful steeplechaser Trumpeter, in the stable of Gary Black, suffered injuries while being schooled through the jumping field at Pimlico and will be taken out of training for a short period. The good homebred two-year-old, Abrasion, in the stable of J. W. Y. Martin was reported to have bucked his shins. David Woods, publicity director of the Maryland Jockey Club, stated that total-isators the same as those in use at Pimlico would be installed at Bel Air and Timonium in time for the scheduled meetings. J. Y. Christmas transferred the platers Cleaning Time and Fredrick to Narragansett Park for racing at that point. Rough Time and War Grand may follow later. Joe Stevens, of the H. M. Stevens Catering Co., Inc., arrived from New York and will attend to listing reservations for Preakness Day at Pimlico. Trainer Thomas Rodrock shipped the three-year-old Meadow Morn to the farm of W. F. Hitt at Middleburg, Va. Victor Noyes has sent the plater Welsh Lad to his farm on Long Green Valley to be freshened up for racing later in the season. A draft of four horses of the Greentree Stable are expected to reach Pimlico from New York on Sunday. Jockey I. Anderson, contract rider for the Calumet Stable, turned down offers to ride in New York Saturday afternoon for the reason that he wanted to be on hand to work Bull Lea, which is being pointed for the Handicap.
