COCHRANS HORSES AT BELMONT PARK. Xew York, Xovember 3.— Oifford A. Cochran ha I seven of his older horses at Belmont Park. The lot consists of Pleione. Hands Off. Figinny. Prince of Como. Royal Martyr. Feminist and Airman. Mr. Cochran has sold a few of the yearlings which he had at iravesend. but he still has over thirtv. Their removal to Belmont Park has ben postponed for a week or more for the reason that many of them had been ailing until recently aud althousi all of them are doing well now. they are not yet fit to be put into active training. Mr. Cochran has a particularly fine new- stable at Belmont Park, which many experienced horsemen pronounce to be the equal of any training stable they ever saw. It will furnish ample accommodation for his big string of yearlings. The boxes are uniformly large. well lighted and iierfectly ventilated. The great shed, which protects tlie wide walk or training track completely surrounding the big building, has been enclosed, and the windows in it are so large aud numerous that it might be termed a giasn enclosure. These windows oi en in slides so that they call be thrown open in warm weather and furnish no obstruction to the circulation of fresh air aud at the same time make no projections to interfere with the pr.gress of the youngsters taking their work when the place is open. August Belmont was so pleased with the latest trials of his yearlings at Belmont Park that he probably will race fourteen of the fifteen in 1910. Th» first lot tried showed s satisfactorily that most of them were taken out of active training for the present. In this weeks trials eight more performed satisfactorily. The trials were as follows: Sandusky. 23 .-, : Hourless II. 2.".1.-,: Xancy Fair sister to Xorse King*. 23f.: sirenest. 23i-.: Feluea. 2::4:,: Lucky Catch. 231:-. : Flare, St%; Mill Maid against a strong wind. 24r..
