- - * . " - : . , _,. .. Delaware Notes DELAWARE PARK, Stanton, Del., June 25. Prank I. Wrights Sakh-El-Bahr went went slightly amiss in his recent winning effort and will be sidelined for a brief time, according to his owner and trainer. Joseph Mergler, former trainer of the stable belonging to the late Mrs. Robert H. Heighe, expects to take a division of the Frank Bonsai stable to New England for a summer campaign. A. P. Mergardt, who formerly raced under the name of the A Pv M Stable, has turned his string over to Jack Collins to train. The stable was recently augmented by the acquisition of Why Not Now from the C. B. Bonn dispersal. In the future, the horses will race, under Mergardts name, rather than the- stable name. J. A. Goodwins Coonskin Cap, a son of Papa Redbird, has been transferred to the University of Pennsylvania, where he will be placed under observation. Trainer Prank A. Bonsai has received four horses from -the farm, including the veteran stakes-winning router, Pilaster. Bonsai returned Anns Love to his Maryland farm for a period of freshening. Mrs. Walter M. Jeffords Coreopsis, winner of his first start in New York and a failure recently in the local Dover Stakes, popped a knee in that engagement and will be transferred to the farm in the near future. The Pavot — Creole Maid colt, during his brief campaign, impressed trainer Oscar White, but was never completely sound. Albert Bogdon of Baltimore, Md., who formerly trained horses on this circuit, has been engaged to serve with Vernon Wisner as outrider during the summer meeting at Randall Park. Trainer Prank Wright has completed arrangements to ship his 12 -horse stable to Narragansett Park for campaigning. The stable will be accompanied by jockey Tommy Fortune. Ted McLean, who is serving as steward here during the absence of Joseph F. Flanagan, has received a similar position during the Scarborough Downs meeting in Maine. Scarborough opens July 4 and McLean reports on Monday, July 6. Clarence "Red" Reynolds arrived from Detroit with Daiquari and War Stim, who will race for J. A. Pierce. Reynolds is making his first appearance here in several years and will saddle Daiquari in the Mont-chanin Handicap. The horses generally race for the Dorchester Stable, which is owned by Pierce and his brother Max and Leo, all of whom live in Cleveland, Ohio.
