Barouche 15 Scarlet Lily 15 Brigade 20 Malay SO Nobleman 0 Vulcain 20 Walkenshaw 40 Circus 0 Lou Woods EO Ullraan does not give the Tichenor stable a starter in his present calcu ¬ lations If is the general impression among the trainers that Miracle II will carry the orange and black sashes of this fashionplate stable in the big event of the opening day Trainer Poole says that he has not made up his mind what he will do However it is said that Caviar will not start as he is receiving a special preparation for the Brooklyn Cambrian does not seem fit fitHenry Henry M Zicglfr f Cincinnati is going into the racing business on a bigger scale than heretofore He is after the big rrises of the turf and he thinks his trainer Charley Hughes can send winnersto the post Together with Hughes he spent yesterday looking over the yearlings at Overton H Chenault Spendthrift SCtiaT They are by Hermence Russell etc Mr Ziegler liked the sons and daughters of the two sires so well that henegotiated for the pur ¬ chase of the entire lot about thirty head No deal was closed but it is likely he will hand over about 15000 and take them He wants the colts by Her ¬ mence on account of his son Hermis now owned by him He Eaid yesterday I think Hermis will win the American Derby I stand to win about 30000 if ho does He is as fine as split silk He may be small but he is all race horse Joe Ullman is quoted as saying in regard to the Montgomery Handicap If Waring wins I stand now to lose 28000 Just before leaving Hot Springs I took a bet of 1000 from Harry McKenna and Bob Lloyd at 21 to 1 on the Hildreth horse Should Nitrate win I stand to lose about the same amount as on Waring Albert Simons wanted to bet me 500 on him at 5 to 1 this afternoon but I re ¬ fused it The price is now 4 I have a telegram from Leo Meyer at Hot Springs asking me what I would take on Wax Taper I told him 1000 at 8 to 1 Havent had an answer as to that yet As the book now stands I would lose about 5000 to that horse I would get an even break on Silurian and I would lose to all others of the possible starters with the exception of The Lady and Vulcain How ¬ ever the meeting looks like it is going to be a great one and I stand a good chance to get the book rounded out between now and post time Monday Many horsemen are daily arriving at Memphis Among the latest to reach there are Tom and John Shannon The former came from Kentucky and the latter from Florida Gene Porter who has been wintering at Palm Beach got in Wednesday morning Colonel WE A pplegate and Charles T Waltering have arrived from Louisville Walter ing says that his Oaks candidate Sister Addie is going freely at Churchill Downs and that he figures to have a good chance with her in the star event for threeyearold fillies at Latonia Joe Over meyer got in from San Francisco W H McCorkle owner of Barouche has arrived from Lexington He is pretty sweet on this filly notwithstanding the prevailing opinion that a threeyearold cannot win it and especially a filly Since last Saturday the Kentucky Association track at Lexington Ky has been alive with horses and for the first time since last fall they have been sent along to their full capacity from a quarter to a half mile The track is lightning fast right now and it would require a very heavy rain to make it slow a light shower having only the effect to settle tho dust dustThe The best half mile work done so far was by a two yearoldt filly by Troubadour winner of tho Su ¬ burban Handicap in 18 6 She stepped the distance in 5H seconds Tho threeyearold filly Golden Glitter owned by C W Moore went in 51 seconds The latter is trained by John Bodegap while the owner of the former is Dr Bryan a local veterinar ¬ ian who also owns tho muchtalkedof Troubadour colt now at Memphis in the stable of William Wal ¬ lace laceXThe XThe most impressive work done there this week so far was by tho twoyearold First Chip a chest ¬ nut colt by First Mate Chippie dam of Pine Chip He did a quarter over the hill in 25 seconds under a stout pull all the time He had 120 pounds up and a day after he did three furlongs in 36 seconds He is trained by E L Marders who broke and developed the sensational Endurance by Right He is one of the first of the get of First Mate to race raceOther Other startling time was made this week when a quarter in 231 seconds was negotiated by a Major Richards a twoyearold in Cy Hughes stable This filly only cost that shrewd trainer 65 as a yearling last fall Tho threeyearold filly Ace of Spades a sister to Isabinda worked a like distance in the same time J C Milam worked the twoyearold Wednesday a halfmile in 51i seconds but slio had light weight up Yet so satisfactory was the per ¬ formance to the trainer that all efforts to identify the youngster have so far failed failedThe The strings of Albert Simons and H T Griffin have arrived at Memphis from New Orleans Among the horses were Nitrate and Lord Quex Simons sets great store by Nitrate in the Montgom ¬ ery Handicap and is of tho opinion that tho horse that beats him will carry off the prize The attendance since tho opening of Bennings has been so unusually largo that the club has decided to ncrease its purses On and after today 400 will be the smallest purse contested for This move ¬ ment has met with much satisfaction among the horsemen
