January 21. — Rock View, the -tar ]UVeniIp of the stable Louis Fetlstel campaigned in Canada and Maryland ia-t year tor Aagttsl Belmont, chairman of the Jockey Club of New York. is at the Bennlng track, finishing into one of tin heat-looking three-year-olds otic atfgbt rare to see. Bock View just shades sixteen bands, is decoupled and short-hacked, inn with reach in abaa-ilance. ami weteha 1,0725 pound-. Hi- bulk is uphold by four ch-an. well Idk* and his feet are big ami healthy. Trainer Feustel has an idea that Bock View will demonstrate that he is iln most useful three-year-old, with the possible exception of ragged Fair Play, that has carried the colors of the chairman of the Jockey Club in nfti-eu years. Rook View did not. Immediately after his retire-meal from traialag, do as well as Feaatel might have desired. P.ut he began to pick up at about Christmas time ami i- takiag on flesh every day. The brown son of Rock Saiul will be trained for tin- Preakness Handicap, which Mr. Belmont won the year before last with Watervale and in i he running of which Watervale established ■ n,-w track record of 1 :"il for on- mile and an eighth. This sou of Rock Sand and ioldeu View is the only three-year-old of which Mr. Belmoal expects biff things next -easmi. Snndvalo. daaghter of Kock Sand and I.adv Violet, hence a hait-sister to Iord of the Vale and Watervale and several other winners, is ■una lag into a good-Moklag filly. Saadtale showed speed in fair company a time or two last season, but she ■ was not a tofsaotcher, and hllies at heat are un-eerta in.

I winner of the Pow ie Slakes at Baltimore, will be I bigger mare when sin- .ets to the racea ill IMS than she was last year. and. in view of the liking • she showed fir long-distance raciag at Piaallco in 1 November, she will be pointed for raciag over eon- 1 siderable distances, l.a-t spring her trainer was not I sure Mission was a stayer. There is a nialiire h - in the -table that ha- never started, to wit. Top . Hat. a son of Hastings and Topiary and a half I brother to Trao Bock.
