NOTES OF THE TURF. Prospero Boy. Prospero Son and Gylfi have been fired at Juarez recently. Henry Shields, formerly well-known in Chicago and St. Louis as a quite capable jockey, is one of the colony of Americans training horses in France. I Algeria would not at first thought be considered fruitful ground for thoroughbred racing, but twonty-four meetings are scheduled to be held this year in that country. N. B. Davis, who recently purchased the two-year-old filly. Mar Shaw, from O. A. Bianchi, has made application to the registrar of the Jockey Club for permission to change her name to Louise May. Most of the stables racingVat Juarez will be shipped to Kentucky at the close of the meeting at the Mexican course, as no racing of importance is scheduled for the far west, where many of them have heretofore raced in summer, until July. Eugene Elrod thinks it will require two special trains to transport tlie horses coming to Kentucky from Juarez tills spring.
