"Jimmy" Jones this m-rn-ing breezed three juvenile fillies from Mrs. Gene Markeys Calumet Farm contingent from the gate, which is usually an indication of a fairly imminent start. Two of the more fashionably bred junior misses in the string, Beyond and Princess Turia, were caught stepping three furlongs in :37 V-;, merely breezing. Beyond is a daughter of Citation from Always, while Princess Turia is by Helicp-olis from Blue Delight and thus a half-sister to the brilliant Beal Delight. Jones also breezed Sunnydene in :38Vs. This filly has no stakes engagements as yet. Other newcomers working from the gate this morning include Mrs. John W. Hanes English four-year-old filly, Queens Bsech-es, who was clocked in :36%, handily, and Temple ton Stables juvenile colt by Mr. Busher, Piecesofeight, who -stepped the same distance a fifth faster. Laudy Lawrences Jabneh, a Belmont . t I I t V l» Stakes "dark horse," breezed a half in 1:02, only being allowed to run the final j furlong after being hard held for a half in :50. Maine Chance Farms Myrtles Jet, who was being brought up to the races in fine fettle by Rannie Parish after having suffered an injury caused by a too tight girth, went an impressive Tnile in 1:41%~ this morning. The daughter of Myrtle Charm was not asked for her best speed. King Ranchs High Gun indicated that he suffered no ill effect from his gruelling struggle in the Suburban Handicap when he breezed an easy half in :49 this morning. The son of Heliopolis is now pointing for the Brooklyn Handicap before venturing across the Atlantic. Max Hirsch also sent John S. Phipps Spinning Top, a Top Flight Handicap candidate, six panels in 1:15% under a light hold.
