stars of the track no owners have possessed stables that annually attract more consideration than do those belonging to Mike and Phil Dwyer They will each have strong stables this year ard Ward this

Marianne chestnut colt by Kingston Bogota brown colt by Kingston Fore ¬ thought bay colt by Kingston Boabdilla Boatbill bay colt by Great Tom Bricabac Rica black colt by Top Gallant Vesper and baV brave colt by Logic Sylph by Glenelg Genteel GlenelgBen Genteel Ben Brush is in big hard condition The splint that gave so much trouble last season has been entirely got rid of and as otherwise he ap ¬ pears to be as sound as he ever was there seems to be no doubt as to his standing the severe preparation necessary to get him thoroughly fit fitHe fiche He is such a strongconstitutioned horse and such a great doer that more than the average amount of work has to be slipped into the sturdy son of Bramble before he is screwed up j to top notch It is a mistake to call Ben Brush a little horse as although standing on short legs he measures within a fraction of 153 has more than the average length and is exception ¬ ally stout of build and very muscular Indeed there are but very few horses in training that will outweigh him himCJeophus CJeophus is framing out and furnishing into a grandlooking grandioso mare and being sound in both wind and limb this highclass highlands mare ought to be heard from in something different than sprint ¬ ing King events eventsLithos events Lithos Litho which was laid up the greater part of last season has been operated on by Dr Sheppard and there seems to be little doubt but that he will stand training trainingRotterdam training Rotterdam which was also operated on by Dr Sheppard last fall gives every promise of training again He has furnished into quite a good looking horse Ben Ronald Harry Reed and Ben Eder Edger all look as good as ever Of the 3yearolds Michael III struck mo as having made the most improvement and although not showing so much quality as some there is quite a workmanlike appearance to that lengthy big quartered son of Islington Wilmington of whom I would expect more than the average improvement as a 3yearold over his 2yearold form formPrevious Previous has grown a bit taller but he did not impress mo as having let down or furnished much but as he is oneof neo the sort that thrives on plenty of work he will improve a lot between now and the middle of April although like many highclass highlands horses Previous is of a class that does not develop into a stout beefy animal He is decidedly on the lathy lath wiry order and absolutely without lum Blum ¬ ber beer And as he is a sound horse of which there is every reason to expect that stay ¬ ing King is his gaine gained this hardy highclass highlands son of Meddler is undoubtedly one of the most valu value ¬ able 3yearolds in training and may prove the best of his age Previous comes legitimately by his class as in addition to his sire imported Meddler being royally bred and a firstclass fistulas performer Sunnyside Sunny the dam of Previous is gloriously bred being by imported Mortemer Mortimer out of Sly Dance by War Dance DanceThe Dance The 2yearolds are on the whole quite a smart looking lot but my choice are the two colts by Meddler which have a great deal to recommend them The colt out of Money Box dam of Cen Chen ¬ tral trail Trust and other winners is a well furnished powerful whole colored bay with good bone and is by far the best looking of his dams pro ¬ duce The colt out of Yodel is more on the Previous pattern but is much better furnished than the latter was at his age This colt was well tried and is certain to race His dam is a young rnare rare by Tremont Fremont Contralto by Falsetto she put of that good producing mare and dam of many winners Fanchon Ancon by Australian and she out of the grand Lexington mare Idlewild Idle IdlewildOf Of the four by Kingston tiie tie colt out of Fore ¬ thought is smooth turned and smart looking The bay out of the Bonnie Scotland mare Boab Bob ¬ dilla dill is a well furnished colt of good size and looks as if he will prove at least useful usefulA1 A1 big boned upstanding colt is the bay by Sir Modred Molded Faux Pas The two Tromonts Trombones are both speedy looking The black colt by Top Gallant Vesper by Vassar is a clean cut nicely balanced colt that looks almost certain to race
