The New Orleans nierry-go-romid has a new starter, the fourth in six days. His name is John Carey. Peter Worth, a New York bookmaker, was robbed of 1907.sh,400 by a pickpocket in a crush at Drooklyn Dridge Saturday. Jockey Frank Otis, who has been riding at the New Orleans half-mile track, has gone to Seattle to ride for Stewc Judge. The rumor that another race track is to be built in the vicinity of Cincinnati on the Kentucky side of the Ohio river lias been revived. A number of horses from the stables of F. A. Forsythe. R. J. Walden and Robert Neville are to be sbld in the paddock at Kenilworth Saturday. Fels won the Kaisers Shield, one of the most coveted prizes of the German turf, last week, making the fourth winner of this race that George Walker has trained for Weinberg Drothers. There is a possibility that Richard Croker will send over from Ireland some of his horses to race in this country next year, and New Yorkers are hoping that Yrby will carry his colors in the Suburban Handicap. James Rowe, trainer of James R. Keenes stable, is an early riser, lie is up every morning during the racing season at 4 oclock, and he requires that every one of the stables employes shall be ready to begin the days work at the same hour. Old Honesty, in different hands, would be one of the best three-year-olds in the country. He is never galloped twice by the same boy. No boy rides him twice, and a different groom takes care of the colt almost every day. This colt should be the best bread-winner in- the west with proper care. Louisville Courier-Journal.
