GOSSIP OF THE TURF. Daring the last few days a number of foals have been dropped in tho Blue Grass studs, some of which may prove interesting from a horsemans point of view. They are as follows : At Castleton Stud, the property of J. R. and F. T?. Keene Brown filly, by Kingston Optime, by Orme. Chestnut filly, by St. Leonards Merry Dance, by Petrarch. Chestnut filly, by St. Leonards Hampton Belle, by Hampton. At La Belle Stud, the property of H. P. Hoadley Bay colt, by Hamburg Semper Fldele, by Longfellow. At Nursery Stud, the property of August Belmont Bay colt, by Madison Carlotta. by Kingfisher. Prominent breeders are scouring tho country to locate tho stallion Perblaise, bj- St. Blaise Perhaps, by Australian. This move is due to the fact that Boxane, now owned by S. Sanford and Sons, Hurricana Stud, Amsterdam, N. Y., is by him, and a review of his get shows that of his eight starters so far to raco he has seven winners. John E. Madden trained Perblaise, and when done racing Milton Young, his breeder, bought him of James E. Pepper, into whose hands he had fallen. While owned by Pepper he sired the filly which has turned out to be the good racer Boxane. A few years since Young sold Perblaise to some man in Kansas, and there all trace of the now noted stallion ends, as the rumor of the horse being located on a breeding farm in Illinois has proved, upon investigation, to be without foundation. If alive, Perblaise is but fourteen years old and several seasons of usefulness in the stud still lie before him. He is a half brother to Beckon, for which mare Capt. S. S. Brown paid 7,100 at the closing out sale last fall of the horses owned by A. H. and D. H. Morris. We have been wont to take pattern from English methods in racing. The Sportsman has this to say with regard to the last race of the day run recently atQatwick Park: "Hose Wreath, winner of the Manor Steeplechase at Qatwick on Saturday afternoon, was objected to on the ground of crossing, but as the stewards had left the course before the race waB decided, the matter remains in abeyance. Minting Lass completed the course, but the judge had left the box, and tho clerk of the scales had also departed before Day the fillys jockey returned to the weighing room. The absence of officials to deal with the complaint lodged by the rider of Celebration was strongly commented upon, the more so when a rumor obtained currency that both the placsd horFOS had missed an.obstncle." What would be said if such a thing happened in this country? It is rumored that because of the fact that the New York and Port Chester railroad may tunnel under Morris Park instead of cutting through it, there may bo racing there for .several years to come in spito of the fact that the Westchester Association has. already planned to operate at the new Belmont Park next season. But in view of the difficulty in finding room in the schadule for all of tho tracks now working under the jurisdiction of the Jockey Club, it is generally believed that when Belmont Park is opened Morris Park will be closed forever, as far as the turf is concerned. Burns and Waterhouse expect to send their shifty little Missouri-bred horse, Corrigan, east to run in tho Suburban, and hope Bullman will ride him. Ho ran a good race for a three-year-old in tho Burns Handicap last winter, ana a youngster likoly this year to emulate that oxample is M.J.Dalys Claude, if ho is not raced stale in the meantime. He has won but two races this winter, but should have taken two others, and, after being interfered with at the stretch turn, was beaten but a short head for third money in the New Year Handicap. J. B. and F. P. Keeno have ordered -tho following mares, which recently arrived in this country from England, sent to Castleton Stud, and they will arrive there from Messrs. Keenes New Jersey training quarters during the week : Running Stream, ch. m, 5, by Domino Dancing Water. Noonday, ch. m, 5, by Domino Sundown. Kate Glover, br. f, I, by Kingston Bonnie Gal. The latter filly is a half sister to Cap and Bells. The five-yaar-old chestnut stallion Armaath, by Enthusiast or Athling Millcog, a recent Kesne importation, will also come weot with the mares to do stud service at CastUton. Trainer J. C. Milam is being besieged with offers for his six-year-old bay mare Northumbria, by Ben Strome The Humber, by Bread Knifo. Milam raced Northumbria successfully. She is a full sister to Eugenia Burch. Milam bred her to Goodrich last year, and she is expected to foal soon. He has refused ,000 for this mare on several occasions. W. T. McGrath has sold Ben Battle for ,C00 and Lady Radnor for ,500 to a western man and both will be raced as jumpers. Ben Battle is a full brother to the good horse Jim Megibben, racedso successfully by A. Shields, part owner and trainer I of Advance Guard. I
