December 4.— Hughie McCarren. * who is this year racing his horses for the first time at the Juarez track, has a string of ten J horses in his barn. He has the five-year-olds Jacob Ilimi and Willis: the three-year-olds Hapsbtirg II.. Endurance. Miss Fissy and" Black Curl, and the ] two-year-olds Happiness. Rose Garden. Andrew * Johnson and Grispie. With the exception of Willis. J Jacob Bunii and Endurance, all the horses now in his stable are of his own breeding. ! McCarren greatly regrets that he ever sold his -famous campaigner Camel, that once won at Louis- f villi- and paid 50.30 for a ticket in the pari- J niiitiiels. He says that he did not liet a dime on his J horse to win that day. taking a tip on another ■ horse in the race and wagering 0 on his chances. ] He sold Camel and a day or two later received news J that Hapsburg. which he had in the stud in Ken- J tucky. was dead. He then went to buy Canrd hack and ascertained that his new owner had or- [ dered him gelded a few hours before. For Mc- Carren Camel won a total of forty-three races anl J in 103 of his other starts was in the money, finish-ing second sixty-four and third thirty-nine times. He won in money a total of 0,103. Camel might have proven a good sire had he been left an entire horse, as his pedigree was rich with the blood of great winners of the turr. Anyway, after McCarren I had lost the half brother to Hamburg he would have J tried the BOB of Cameron out as a sire had he I been able to get him back an entire horse. ■ There have lieen few horses on the turf that i have done more racing than Camel. He was never let tip on in seven successive years of racing ami for four in no year started in less than sixty-two races. One year he ran seventy-five times, another seventy-two and in still another year seventy-one times. He can surely lie classed as the modern I Barnum or Logan of the turf. 1 McCarren is now mating most of his mares to the voung Knglish-bred sire. Brummel a son of Desmond and Beautys Daughter, by Gallinule. The second dam of this horse is Sleeping Beauty, by Ben Battle, the sire of Bendigo. winner of 03,330 on the English turf. This turfman at present has only four mares in the stud, namely. Ethel Wheat. Mai Smile. Florida Rose and Ethelburg. with which he won the Debutante Stakes at Churchill Downs in 1909. The last-named is now in foal to Stalwart, but all his other mares were mated to Brummel. Several Kentucky breeders have recently made overtures • to buy this horse, which is now only seven years old and which won three times in England at two i and the same number of times as a three-year-old. Twelve of the seventeen horses Godfrey Preece brought here to race at the winter meeting of the Jockey Club Juarez are yearlings. The Long Island trainer and turfman has a likely-looking collection of youngsters. They have an abundance of size and are all around promising prospects as coining two-year-olds for the racing campaign of 1910. They have all been named. A complete list is: Bootless Baby, eh. f, by Dr. Boots— Highflown, bv Peep oDay. Burney Kearney, br. c, by Bannockburn — Ida Kearney. Cobala. blk. f, by Dr. Leggo — Georgia Girl.

Preece also has here the four two-year-olds Dish, Stellarina. Jose and Last Chance, and the five-year-old gelding Striker. He anticipates a profitable winter with the big string he has in charge. At the close of the Juarez meeting Preece intends shipping his string to Churchill Downs and to take part in Kentucky racing next spring. If some of the coming two-year-olds show stake class. Unstable will have nominations in the Kentucky Derby and Oaks and the Latouia Derby of 1917. W. P. Fuller, who is now associated with II. L. Craiue and trainer R. L. Rogers, is a wealthy paint manufacturer of San Francisco and reputed to he several times a millionaire. He intends to embark extensively in racing in the near future and is now in the market to purchase anything promising that shows up. He expects to be much at the Juarez track and his present stay here will extend up to the holidays. In the spring he will visit Kentucky and 1h- a strong bidder in the yearling market of IMC He recently lieguti negotiations looking to the purchase of oiie of the most promising coming three-year-olds in Kentucky, with a view to having a representative in tin- big Derbys of 1915. Earl I.iniiell. who a few years back ranked high as a trainer of horses, now talks of coming back into the business in company with, as partner, a man of large wealth, who is a new comer to racing in California. After selling Osaple the winter before last, having previously disposed of Irish Gentleman. Linnell announced he had quit the turf and has since been in business at Long Beach. Cal. He litis just written to a friend here that while he has prospered in his latest venture, he still hankers after the post and paddock, and expects to be back in harness again as a trainer of horses. Linnell enjoyed much success as a trainer as long as he followed the business and with the horses he trained, won many races. One of the horses he raced with marked success was Black Mate, which had the distinction of having won on everv track he ever raced over. Linnell also developed the crack jot-key Guy Garner. He also contributed much to making Charley Gross a successful rider. Trainer 1". D. Weir, at the close of the present meeting, may persuade E. E. McCargo. the owner of Any Port, to let the son of Star Shoot remain in Texas and enter the stud. Any Port will be eight years eld ill the spring and being excellently bred, there is no reason why he should not make a success as a sire. In a career beginning as a two-year old in 1910 he has raced to date 150 times, winning 10 races and finishing in the money upon 4.S other occasions. He has won a total of 4. "01 in stakes and purses. His record by years is given in the table below: Year. Age. Ma. 1st. 2d. 3d.
