I TWO-YEAR-OLDS AT NEW ORLEANS. I Promising Youngsters in the Stables of the I Leading Owners. New Orleans. La.. January 1. — From now on until the end of the season the performances of the youngsters will give to local racing an added inter est. more than usually so this season in view of the fact that nearly all the leading stables are I pretty well filled up with young racing material. It is only a few years ago that the early racing of the juvenile brigade here was considered so Met of an experiment that only a few purses and ii" stakes at all were offered for them, and the purse-were sparsely scattered throughout the latter hilt of the meeting. Year by year it lias been the more clearly demonstrated that youngsters put into early training here, anil developed throughout the winter meetings, are more than able to hold their own against the competition of green baby racers, not only on the western circuit, but at the early spring meetings at Benniug. Aqueduct, etc.. and so owners of the meiropolitan tracks, as well as those of the middle west, are beginning to regard New Orleans as a natural early training ground fr the juvenile division. An idea of the large number of two-year-olds here may be gleaned from the very liberal nominations to the stakes. At the Fair Grounds 7S ar*-entered for the Premier Stakes, HI for the Carnival. 64 for the Ladies and 95 for the Rosebud. The National Stakes at Oity Park has 94 nominations the Martha Washington 02, the I/onisiana !Mi and the Juvenile 87. The Juvenile, which is at three furlongs, will be the first two-year-old fixed even; to be run for. It is scheduled for January 2:. Beginning the first of the year, the programs at b"tb tracks will contain an abundance of short dashes for the baby racers, although for the time being there may be some little difficulty In filling these races quite satisfactorily, as trainers, in their usual dilatory way of doing things, have been slow to claim names for their youngsters, and names must be claimed and registered by the Jockey Club before two-year-olds can be allowed to start. While pretty nearly every owner here has one or more two-year-olds in his barn, the cream of them are. of course, to be found in the big stables. E. Corrigan, L. A. Cella. R. Tucker, Burlew and ONeill. J. P. Mayberry, R. E. Watkins, J. H. McCormick. etc.. all have so many likely youngsters that it will be strange indeed if three or four stake colts and fillies are not brought out here before the season ends. While a majority of these young things have been going through the routine of training gallops and schooling at the barrier, only the most forward ones have beeu sent along preparatory to starting in the early purses. L. A. Cella has one of the largest band of two-year-olds here. Fourteen of them are in training here, while the other seven are at Louisville. These youngsters were lionght at the eastern yearling sales and they cost Mr. Cella a total of almut 0,000. Two of the highest priced ones, both of which are here, are a colt by Star Shoot and a colt by Sempronius. For the former,500 was paid and for th" latter ,500. The pick of Mr. Cellas youngsters are well entered in the eastern stake events. There are three promising Cesurior.s in tlie Cella collection, a tilly out of In Front, a colt out of Niola and another colt out of Fonsolette. A chest nut colt by Yankee, out of Halo is also a likely sort. To date this colt is said to have shown better trials than anything else in the barn. In the local sta"kes Mr. Cella is chiefly represented by ch. c. by Yankee — Halo: ch. c. by Nasturtium — Fertile, ch. c. by Cesarion — Niola. and ch. c, by Cesarion — In Front. It may lie that pretty close to a high-class one will be found among these. Certainly after so liberal an expenditure for yearlings Mr. Cella ought to be entitled to some luck with his juvenile racers. Mr. Corrigan"s Jiig kindergarten brigade are au even looking lot, not. always considered a good sign by breeders, who like to see one or two in a big collection stand out by themselves. However, tins. youngsters are all well bred ones, are sizable and shapely, and a little later, when Mr. Corrigan begins to let them down for all they are worth, more than one speedy runner should materialize from the lot At present these youngsters look as though they were not being hurried. Among the wilts. Mr. Corrigan is represented in the stakes by b. c, by Brantome — Lucille Murphy; b. c. by Bran-tome— Edith, and b. c. by Scintillant II.— The I.ady. In the Ladies Stakes he is represented by the following fillies: Bay. by Marta Santa — Pro-elaiin: bay, by Marta Santa — California: bay, by Marta Santa — Glcnella II.. and chestnut, by Marta Santa — Challie Howard. The colt out of The Lady is a speedy looking sort, and on breeding be ought to run fast, as both his sire and dam were speed marvels when in training. J. H. McCormick has the following stake nominations: B. g. by Hastings— Belgravia: b. f. by Ben Brush— Veva; b. g, by Hastings— St. Eudora. and the chestnut tilly. Gloriole, by Hastings — Glory. The Hastings youngsters were bred at the Nursery Stud. As these are all well-bred ones and ■a .McCormick is one of the best judges of yearlings in the country, much may be expected of them. They have all been thoroughly schooled to the barrier and have worked about as well as any other youngsters here. Gloriole, the filly out of Glory a full sister to Glorifierl. though a bit undersized, is a typical racing machine. She is well- , , Continued on second page. TWO-YEAR-OLDS AT NEW ORLEANS. Continued from first page. mannered and well broken, elements that count in -early racing. She is fast. too. and is likely to be heard from in the short dashes for the fillies. In the old days McCormick raced her dam. also bred at Hi ■ Nursery Stud, so that it is easy to imagine thai this lilly has a high place in the regard of the veteran eastern trainer. Burlew and ONeill are the largest nominators to the stakes, their leading representatives, all of them named, being as follows: Jala. ch. f, by Falherless Eolide; Sorry, eh. f. by Gold Heels — Penitence: Shone, eh. g. by Shapfell — Onega: Misfortune, blk. g. by Fatherless — Meta Russell; Musical Man l r. c. by Meadowthorpe — Nocturu; Sparkling Drop. I . c. by Watercolor--Diminutive: Lady Vassar. b. f. bv Sir Dixon — Vassari; Brougham. Jj. g. by Blues--Barouche: Molly Stark, blk. f, by Samliingliain- -Semper Paratus. These are a well-groun. well-bred, good-looking lot, and as far as appear.:!, ce go the "B. Ac O." stable ought to cut considerable figure in the decision of the two-year-old take* here. Some of these juveniles have not as jet shown enough in public to enable one to forma very accurate opinion as to their individual merits, lirougusini. the gelding by Blues — Barouche, is a likely sort, and is bred well enough to be a good one. as his dam was a high class race mare and will be remembered as having raced in the colors of the Lexington turfman. W. H. McCorkle. George C. Bennett, the Memphis breeder and Wild, is a liberal stake nominator, most of his youngsters being by Kings Counsel, Intrusive and Lucky Dog. Like Mr. Corrigan, Mr. Cella and some other owners, Mr. Dennett has been slow about naming his juveniles, or at least the registry de p.irtineni of the Jockey Club has been slow in passing upon names claimed, so that these two-yeai olds may not be seen out in the early races. W. II. 1 izer and Co. have but few stake nominations, the leading stable representatives l eing Ruth K.. ch. f. by Oruus — Sewing Girl; Lightning Flash, ch. f, by Handcuff — Jennie F., and Bessie Trent, vh. f. by Handcuff — Lazarre. These are not remarkable for fashionable breeding, but are fair look ing youngsters. C. R. Ellison this year has but few .-take entries, as he was not so large a purchaser of yonilirul material last year as previously. Among hit- nominations are a chestnut filly, by Pirate of Penzance Lady Inez, and a chestnut filly, by Mazag.ui -Sallie of Navarre. Barney Schreiber is to the fore with some promising- Woodlands-bred oiks. Then arc a bay colt, by Sain -Appollonia: chestnut gelding. Servicence. by get lid — Innocence; brown filly, by Sain — Belle Ward; bay filly, by Sain — Highland, and bay filly, by Sain -Liberty1 Star. It is reasonably certain ihat ane or more of these will turn out to be good ones. Otic oj the best-tried youngsters here is the bay eait, Maritza, in R. Tuckers string, by Nasturtium -Merrily. Enough of the juveniles have In i ii -ent through their paces at a fast clip t give promise of keen contests in the two-year-old races that will come on before the decision of the stakes. S. B.
