Y., April 5— One of the best balanced strings training at Belmont Park for the impending opening of the New York turf season at Jamaica is that in the care of Preston Burch, who has horses for Howe Stable, Longchamps Farm. Harry LaMontagne, Mrs. Marion Scott and himself. The bigest contingent in the Burch barn will carry the Longchamps colors and com- prises 16 head. The older horses who will carry Henry Lustigs colors are Baby Dumpling, Grant Rice, Professor Lee. Dance Team, Mrs. Ames, Abashed, Quent Reynolds and Donitas First. Most of this group showed to excellent advantage last season and the good filly, Mrs. Ames, and the gelding. Dance Team. are training steadily. Professor Lee, however, did nothing during the winter and will not be seen for some time. The Longchamps two-year-olds are Bill Corum, br. c, by Pharamond II. — Beanie M.: Bright Scholar, dk. b. c, by Rhodes Scholar — Lost Horizon; Bill Hardey, chest-. nut colt, by Grand Slam — Sweet Gene-. vieve: Aprobiado, gray colt, by Gino — Karelia sister to Economic ; Baron Jack, ch. c, by Stimulus — Heloise; Bill, b. c, by Challenger II. — We; Sun Lady, ch. f. by Sun Teddy — Lady Lark, and Leslie Grey, gr. br. f, by Isolater — Theme Song. Baron Jack Costly Juvenile Several of these juveniles were costly yearlings, notably Baron Jack, a 3,000 purchase, highest price of last years Meadow Brook Sales. Sun Lady is a half sister to the good filly Twilight Tear, while Bill Corums dam was a good stake winner in the colors of Col. E. R. Bradley. Most of the Longchamps horses, however, face something of a jinx in being named after living persons. Burch has a sextet for Howe Stable, headed by the Paumonok candidate, Cas-a sis. The others are True North, Plane Shadow, Grey Hood, To Dare and a pair of two-year-olds. The latter are Pentagon, br. c, by Johnstown — Volendam, and B-29, br. c, by Challenger II. — Audley Girl. The quartet Burch is prepping for Harry LaMontagne are Rodney Stone, Larky Day, PRESTON BURCH Capetown and Sicily. The latter is a nice looking brown filly by Reaping Reward — Gino Patty. Rodney Stone was one of the leading juveniles last year and wintered well in the Carolinas. The pair who will race for Mrs. Scotts Montpelier stable are both three-year-old fillies who did not start last year. There are Precipitation, a bay daughter of Stimulus and Nimba, and Resplendence, a gray by Gino — Sun Flo. Burch also has the four -year-old Pursuit Plane, whom he is schooling over the jumps for his own account. The son of Challenger II. won one of his three starts last season.
