But trainer Deter Wimmer snapped his watch on Racquet and caught the Ranald horses time for three-quarters of a mile as 1:14. Secretary G. D. Wilson of the Kentucky Association already lias applications for stable room at Lexiagtoa for eighty horses now at Saratoga and has ordered Superintendent J. 1. Ross to issue a notice to the horsemen now- quartered at the track that all yearlings now there must be removed by September 5, to make room for incoming horses iu training.

Pons at Douglas Dark catch the eyes of horsemen and are generally preferred to the colts of the same age in the Florida turfmans stable. A sister to Tallahassee and King of Troy, a sister to Battle Sue and a filly out of Bessie McCarthy are a trio which ari much admired.
