It is expected that George Rose will lay odds at Juarez after the first of the year. He is at present in Sau Francisco. W. K. Norvell, a well-known racing official, is spending a brief time at his home! in this city. He came from Norfolk and reports that the meeting now going on there lias been wonderfully prosperous, as were the fall meetings at Laurel and Pimlico.

Mr. Whitney purchased this young Commando stallion at the Keene sale in September for S3S.000, and while 1913.sh3,000 is certainly a tempting offer, he prob-nbtv woidd not part with the site of his Futurity wiriuer. Pennant, for considerably more thau the sum offered. Superintendent Keegan of the Juarez track predicts that every track record will be broken during the winter at that course.
