Flittergold and Fenmouse hive been at Denning since the wind-up of the last autumn meeting at I.owie. and Flittergold has done well from the star. He is an 1 .100-pound stallion now. but he is not carrying fifty pounds of superfluous flesh, and four or five gallops at speed will put him on edge. He will get Ills final work as soon as Daly, who is nbs- nt in Cuba just now. gets back to Benning. Fenmouse- did not clo as well in the early winter as lid Flitteigolel. She lost flesh, in fact, up to the middle of February, but lei one was I UT prised. Fen-me use- has always lost flesh after a hard seasons campaigning. Bet she has picked up noticeably in the last three or four weeks, and it is safe to predict that she will look as well as any man- in train iiig. before the bugle calls her te duty, on the open beg day c.f the Howie- nice ting. And there is no reason for surprise at her recent Improvement. Thai i-. I lie- way she trained last spring and the sluing before. Both in the Bowie Inaugural.

Neither is unfamiliar with the winning post at Bowie. It was nt Bowie last Aprij that Fenmouse won her first race as a four .ar old. when she defeated King Worth. Fair Helen.

Flittergold does not care for cuppy going, as a rule, in which respect he is an unusual Hastings, but when he is fresh In- runs smartly anywhere, as he proved at I.owie- last spring by defeating the ■ good sprinters Gloaming, Presumption, Skihs Knob, Greenwood and Judge Wright ill the Woodward Handicap, a race of three-quartera of a mile. In the running of the Woodward, FUttergoM carried Hi; pan tide and euealed the track record of 1:15. It is the intention of Daly to get as many rices as p. s-ible under Flittergotdi belt at I.owie- and the other Maryland tracks. lie is such a greet doer ho must have racing for conditioning purposes. If the kandieapper does not ask too much of Flittergold, Daly believes that ill- Chestnut will prove hard to trim in the Metropolitan. Holiday. Capital Prize and Kingly. Daly has not wintered Holiday, a horse he trained last see. son for Archibald Barklie of Philadelphia. Holiday has been at the Barklie farm since- tin- last Howie meeting. Iiut he is expected at Benning almost any day now. and if he can be got ready he too will race at Bowie. With Holiday v ill come tl.e three-year-old Capital Priae, a sou of Garry Herrmann, which Mr. Barklie Intends to point for the- Harbor Hill Steeplechase at Piping Bock next fall. Capital Prises schooling will begin at Iim-lico in May and Mr. Barklie wants to get a few races in him before that. Daly has an Inaugural candidate of his own in Kingly, a Jersey -bred son of Stanhope- and half-broth r to King hiii. Kingly won many good races on tin Canadian circuit a few years back, anil he trained sattsfae torily last spring, itut in- "e-n lame- in the tunning of the- Metropolitan. Kingly still has his bad leg, hut he is going sound in his gallops, and Daly believes be wil win on tiie splendidly -e u- hioneii Howie course, if in c.m win anywhere. If Kingly fails at Bowie, Dil. v. ill give- him up as a racing proposition and send him to the stud, lb- i- jnsi tie- sort of horse- to be out at the work of siring jump.-rs.
