WOODBINE TRACK NOT YET SETTLED. Toronto. Ont.. April 21. — The horses at Woodbine are going along well, and there is no reason to fear that they will not lie ready when race day is here a month hence. Be far. of course, there has been no such thing as fast work, for two reasons — Ihe horses and the track are not ready for it. Wet spots are frequent enough, but the mud is not deep, and a few days of good weather will put the going in summer-time condition. The only recent move out of the ordinary- routine was the gallop of Dr. Rent, from the Davies stable. He put in the first quarter close to 24 seconds, half a mile in BS% and five furlongs in 1:6$%, pulling up three-quarters in 1 :20s-,. in response to trainer Henry Mclfciniels signal. The horse was not meant to go at anything like thai pace, hut good race-riders are not always ■4ood work riders, and jockey Claver let him go too fast.
