NOTES OF THE TURF. The latest "star" to join the Norfolk, Va., track forces is Eddie Dominlck, who threatens to ride in races there at some 120 pounds. U. Z. Do Annan has taken a fancy to the riding of little jockey Jensen, who has lieen in the employ of the Fitzgerald stable at Seattle, and has purchased the boys contract from Fitzgerald. Henry Broniberg, a Brooklyn exercise boy for the Burlew and ONeill stable, is in a precarious condition at Saratoga with a fractured skull, caused by his being thrown by a fractious two-year-old. There is a fool piece of "news" going the rounds which relates how, by running a mile in 1:11 J for the Kansas "Derby" on the half-mile track at Topeka, Kas., The Bear broke "the worlds half-mile ruuuing record." Montreal folks think it odd that the 0,000 First Mason should be running in 00 selling races at Blue Bonnets. That is present values, however, as First Mason cost his present owner, R. B. Stellie, but 00. He fails to win the 00 selling races, too.
