: i . 1 1 1 : GOSSIP OP THE TURF. W. H. Cheppu, of Louisville, well known throughout the country as a former horse owner, breeder and bookmaker, arrived in New York from France last Wednesday. Mr. Cheppu was .seen at tho Hoffman House later in relation to the late police rulings in France against certain Americans. Ho says the statement that he was included in those summoned before the police is not true, and that he never was asked a question about his movements or his goings and his comings for the very simple reason that there was nothing to ask. Mr. Cheppu thinks that Vinicus is the best two-year-old colt in France and Rene Margot the best filly. During his career as a breeder in Kentucky Mr. Cheppu owned the dam, grandam and great-grandam of Kings Courier, the Meadowthorpe bred horse that raced with such credit in this country , and England. Before ho went abroad ho was con- nected with the stables of M. Murphy and J. E. Pepper as commissioner and general manager. Clem Hellebush, of Cincinnati, has arrived at Lexington. Ky., bringing his racing string, includ- ing Autumn Leaves, Lady Meddlesome, Clara Louise and Halcyondalo. The horses will bo located for tho winter at Melbourne Stud. Hello-bush says ho will remain in Lexington during the s winter, going to Memphis in March to complete hia training. He expects to start his horses first at the c Memphis meeting. 1 Jockey Charles Milburn, who rode in the east last summer, has left Now Orleans for Detroit, where he will visit until after the holidays.
