Osborne Reports on New York Sales Trainer Gale Osborne returned from New York recently after attending the annual paddock sales. He reported his activity was good and in the past he has purchased many of his charges from that same vendue. Isotrope, which he purchased for B. Fry, a Grove City, Ohio, patron, broke his maiden here last week. Osborne also acquired Tanglewood, Smoke Talk, Rozs Pride and Jeans Pride by the same means. The stock is young and has shown promise. Dan "Irish" OLeary, who handles the turf supplies at most of the tracks in this part of the country, guarantees he can call most of the owners and trainers on hand at this meeting by their first names. Mollie, OLearys boxer dog, does a great deal to create more friends. / F. Merrys Sydney H., five-year-old gelding, is the only thoroughbred here to turn in four consecutive victories. Howard Craig piloted him to each of his victories and in the last, after winning three ,500 claiming events, W. D. Fischer and L. D. Fruchtman claimed him for ,750 . . . N. De Bag will condition the steady-going campaigner . . . The parking problem was a sensitive one here for several days. There was a great deal of consternation about the 50-cent charge, the operation of the parking grounds adjacent to River Downs and the distance one had to walk after paying the fee. Slavin solved that in his usual manner, bought up the lease that the parking people-had here and now has the matter under his personal supervision. The present 25 -cent charge has gone over well with the fans.
