FREDERICK L FOR DERBY H C HALLENBECK REGARDS DICK FINNELL COLT CAPABLE SUCCESSOR TO WORTH WORTHWealthy Wealthy New Yorker Looking Forward to Churchill Downs Great Race for ThreeYearOlds Judge Burkes Gossip from East New York April 111 I spent an liour today witil Mr H y Hnllenl eck owner of one of the best allround stables of horses In training They wintered at their owners farm of 200 acres ueai Bed Huikx X 1 only n short distance from the famous Brookdale Stud now leased to Mr II I Whitney The llallcnhcck horses wintered ir splendid shape and are now on the verge of a campaign which may agahi land their owner neai the top of the list of winning owners us was tlie case ill 1912 The owner of these horses is a iiiai sojiiewhcre in the titties with smoothshaven face ntid wearing glasses lie only a week ago lost lib oldest son a young man of about thirty He hat never tuken any interest in racing hut was glad to have his father do so as it meant needful recrea ¬ tion Another son about twentythree years old is all that is left to the elder Halleiibeck who however hears his loss well for it was a foregone conclusion that the young man who died a week ago could not have long survived cancer the result of un injury received six years ago while cranking up Ills automobile was the cause of death deathTile Tile present II C Halleiibeck is the son of a man who was one of the directors in the Home and Continental Life Insurance Companies an oldtime New York concern at the time that William C Whitney rvas a young man and was its secretary Tlie old New York printing lirni of Wyukoop Halleiibeck has now become the Wynkoop Hallen beck Crawford Co and carries on printing on a tremendous scale Mr Halleiibeck is a stoekholdei in a typesetting machine of which tlie late Jauics H Kccue was the chief financial backer and it is possible that something may be heard of this ma ¬ chine 111 due time Among those who sent letter of sympathy to Mr Halleiibeck over the loss of his son was Mr August Bcluiont It is the intention f Mr Halleiibeck to contribute 5000 to the own ers Fund for the maintenance of racing This is as much as any other mail has given Vhen It is considered that Mr Halleubuck IK H comparative newcomer in racing and has only been on the turf two years jail and 1112 this is indeed liberal lie IB not a breeder though In due time he will be ¬ come onl He is by irotneniis satisfied with certain condmbns huw existing regarding tVo nrotriinhut jockeys both under suspension the ostensible reason being for foul riding but report has it that it was for a far graver cause Uumor has it both jockeys maV secure licenses to ride in which case Jlr Hallcnbeck says lie will address a serious communi tatlon to the stewards of the Jockey Club ClubAs As you published a few weeks ago Mr Hallen becks horses are under the care of Frank Taylor a inan who though young in years lias had a re ¬ markably successful career as trainer Not long before he met with Mr Halleiibeck he had charge of Hilly Dubois powerful stable which in J007 was In grand form its chief winner beins Chiillcs Edward whose Brighton Derby in 2 0 vrllh 120 pounds up was a better performance than that of Goodrich whose 2JOi fifteen years ago lit Washington Iark was with only 102 pounds up When diaries Edward won the Brighton Derby his only opponent wis J L JIcGinnis Frank Gill Since dead Diibois was and s full of sentiment and after this great performance he commissioned the late Henry Stull to paint several pictures in oil of Charles Edward one of which he gave his best friend the late John H Bradford and an ¬ other he gave to another good friend Mr James Butler ButlerWhen When Sam Hildreth brojight McChesney on from Chicago to run him against Waterboy this match never came off by the way it was necessary for Mr Hildreth to find another trainer for McChesney because Sun himself did not at that time hold a Jockey Club license So the horse was handed over to Frank Taylor whose wife is a sister of Ilildretlis wife and under Taylors care Mc ¬ Chesney won the Twin City Handicap in 19O3 carry ¬ ing 12S pounds eiinal weight with Hermis which riln second They ran tlie mile and a quarter in 204 which up to that time was the fastest ever run at Slieepshcad Hay But those who saw the race I was one of the fortunate ones will never forget the wonderfully good pilotage JIc Chesney received from Fuller who never lost a fx t of ground In the whole mile and a quarter Ho Was also wonderfully lucky in finding openings The Held was u large one oneSo So Taylor has every right to lie called a first class trainer and his success with Mr Hallen becks horses was not surprising That lie owed much to Shillings riding goes without saying Tills year the Halleiibeck horses will be ridden by Phil Musgrave Mr IIaIIenl eck has not yet de ¬ cided where he will race his stable after the Havre de Grace and Iiinlico meetings but he expects to enter his handicap horses and his threeyearolds in tin valuable Canadian stakes stakesPrior Prior to the opening of Canadian racing at To ¬ ronto however there will lie run a race at Louis ¬ ville in which there is much interest all over the country id in which Jlr Halleubeck is unusually interested Tills Is the famous Kentucky Derby wop last year by Worth for the New York turfman His chief reliance this year for the race is the black colt Frederick L by Dick Finnell Huxie by Brantomc grandam Helter Skelter By Icll Jlell out of Encore ISrantonic is by St Simon Clarissa by Hampton Dick Finnell is by King Eric Teas Over by Hanover Teas Over Quesal and Lady Viola are almost on a par as three of the most wonderful producing mares In all the world But so far Teas Over has not done for Mr Bclinolit her present owner what she bad done for her former owners when she threw Dick Welles Oit Wells Security and Dick Finnell The last named colt was not a highclass performer though he won four or live races at three years old But lie looks like a coming stallion His sire King Erie bred by 1 I Withers by King Ernest out of Cyclone was Ixmglit after Jlr Withers death for about ir 00 by Walbaum and raced at Gilttenberg and elsewhere Itut broke down early Then he was sold to Kinzca Stone a Kentucky breeder breederAmong Among the first of bis get was Irince Lief a good colt as good a nicer as Ben Brush Their hair raising finish at St Louis In the National Derby of 18JH5 transferred from Chicago to St Louis will not be forgotten in a hurry The late Michael Dwvir had shipind Bon Brush from Latonla to St Louis hoping to win the fat 14 00 which went to the winner B n Brush had wou both the Kentucky and Latonln Derbys Prince Leif had won the Distillers the Phoenix Hotel and the Oakley Derby lost the Buckeye Stakes by a nose to Ben Brush the latter conceding him three pounds and each curried 127 in the National Derby at St Louis which was won l y Prineo Lief by a nose Soup IVrklns on the winner and Willie Slinnis on Ben Brush Ben Kd r another good colt was only beaten a few lengths In 2J a great race at the Weights on the old St Louis Fair Grounds Byron McClelland owned Prince Lief and he was one of Iho laM good horses he owned The able young horseman nild not live long afterward Of the six jockeys who rode in that memorable race Perkins dropped dead at Hamilton Canada last summer1 Simms knocks around New York ex ¬ cept in tlie winter time when he lives at Augusta old man Charley Thorpe was at his home in Nebraska when I last heard of him Tod Sloan is in high feather in Paris Henry Shields Is train ¬ ing in France Johnny Tabor still follows the races ind Willie Martin owns a good stable 1 have gone into the antecedants of Frederick L which was sold as a yearling for 300 Iwcause of the undoubted fact that he is one of the fastest colts of his age in training in tlie opinion of many good judges but these same men think lie will not stay Handicapper W S Vpsbnrgh is of that opinion but Jlr Halleiibeck will not entertain tlie notion for a moment that Frederick L is not a Derby colt Look him up In his late races List fall he said to me today I have done so and still it has not been brought home to me that on his twoyearold form Frederick L is a Derby colt Johnny Schorr however so much admires him that he offered Leochares and 5 000 for him He was at long odds in the antepost betting quoted for the Derby race a few days ago and while H should not IH 40 to 1 against him as it is said to be never ¬ theless so long as Hawthorn keeps well it will take a lot of money bet on others to force the Hastings gelding out of favoritism Any twoyearold which can do what Hawthorn did to Caugh Hill at even weights last fall even though the race was run In November lias naturally the call for a Derby the following spring springWe We in the east were glad to read that it is the intention of the owner of Hawthorn to send that gelding to New York after the running of the big Kentucky stakes We hope to see a good race horse and personally I feel great regret that so good a horse is unsexed and cannot procreate I venture to say that Jlr Belmont who bred Hawthorn and sold him to Howard Wts for GOO who in turn sold him to G H Coyle for about 1200 Is indeed sorry that the youngster was castrated Of course there are two ways to look at this question of castra ¬ tion I asked John K Madden today about this He said that he thinks the question of castration should be settled for each individual colt You know how good a nice horse Salvidere was ho said yet If he hnil not been unsexed I do not think he would have Ifecn successful stallion because he had a poor constitution constitutionHawthorn Hawthorn is by Hastings out of White Thorn by Nasturtium grandam Thorn Blossom by Jlarten hurst he by Wenlock son of Lord Cllfden out Kyesweet by Galopln grandam Whin Blossom by Springfield grandsire of Hock Sand out of Haw ¬ thorn Bloom by Kettledrum out of Lady Alice Haw ¬ thorn This is a famous and stout family on the dams side particularly There is a twoyearold brother to Hawthorn in Jlr Belmouts racing stable at Bcnnlng and we are anxious to get a look at him himJlr Jlr Belmont by the way is doing his share to help provide horses for the future necessities of tlie American turf His plan to bring back from France fourteen yearlings all but three of his entire lot bred there last year and sell them In this country together witli fourteen bred in Kentucky was an excellent thing to ixmilcr on John Madden told me today that lie owns ninety yearlings and I have no doubt that at least threefourths of these will be sold in America while the others will go to Jlr Winans in Kngland Jlr J B Haggin Will sell all hi yearlings during the month of June at the old place near the Sheepshead Bay entrance They comprise fortythree bead Jlr II G Oxnard told me some weeks ago that he will sell his forty yearlings in this country and they will be offered two days after Jlr Hagglns lot So here to be wild at auction are 111 yearlings to say nothing of that large number which John Sanford has at Amsterdam Jlr Whitney lias at Brookdale K K Bradley lias at Idle Hour Barney Schreiber hap at Sedalla W 0 Parmer in Tennessee J N Cam dens in Kentucky J B Itespess in Kentucky A B Hancocks in Virginia F A Forsythcs In Kentucky O H Clienaults in Kentucky G D NVilsons in Kentucky Jlrs L A Livingstons in New Jersey Milton Youngs In Kentucky dipt K B Cassatts in Pennsylvania A B Sprockels In California and many others all over the country Whether countryWhether or not racing goes on in and about New York there is i growing demand for young stock for other ixtinls of tho country and breeders now are in a position to get back sonic of the capital in ¬ vested Jlr Madden told me today that ho owns 300 thoroughbreds of which are brood mitres He now owns more horses than any other man in this country JOSEPH J BUKKE
