t CHURCHILL DOWNS NOTES I 5 ■ Jacochero, a two-year-old bay colt owned by Dr. J. N. Winchester, died at Douglas Park Saturday morning after having arrived in an ailing condition several days ago. Leo "Lightning" Jones, former jockey who is meeting with success in the role of trainer, expects to acquire a few more horses for racing on the Illinois circuit during the summer. At present he has the platers Determined and Summit Hill for his father-in-law, J. H. Galway, Sr. Permission has been granted jockey Warren Yarberry by his contract employer, Joseph E. Widener, to ride Shandon Farms Burning Star in the Dixie Handicap at Pim-lico Wednesday. The Texas lad will fly to Baltimore and return to Churchill Downs immediately after the running of the race. Wise Barrister and Elooto, purchased from the Blue Ridge Farm by W. E. Boeing, will be shipped east by trainer Ted Horning, along with Porters Mite and Air Chute. Upon his arrival in the East Horning will select some of his charges for shipment to Saratoga, which division will be headed by Porters Mite, which will be given a rest. George Rausch brought three horses down from Latonia for Lou Ungar and found stabling accommodations at Douglas Park. The horses are Nancy Sue, Nawab and a juvenile tagged Polly Sweep. Mrs. Elizabeth Oros purchased Bluefield from the Shandon Farm at private terms on Saturday. James Shevlin, former Ohio racing commissioner, was here from Cincinnati for Derby Day. The three-year-old brown filly Grand Child is the only colorbearer that John F. Hunley brought in from Lexington. She will fill several engagements here. Apprentice J. E. Oros, who is leading the countrys riders at this time, plans to do his next riding at Detroit. He will remain here until the end of the Downs meeting.
