0RMESDALE TO RETURN TO THE TRACK Will Race Again After Season in the Stud Latest Gossip from Louisville. LOUISVILLE. Ky., September 2. After having served forty mares last spring Ormesdale, six-year-old son of Ormondale Madchen, has been placed in active training by trainer George Land of the F. J. Kelley stable. The chestnut horse is going along well in his work, and Land is hopeful that ho will get good results with him during the. coining autumn meetings in this state. Ormesdale was bred by Richard T. Wilson, and as a two-year-old won the Keene Memorial Stakes for that turfman in 1915., He will bo taken to Lexington with the rest of the F. J. Kelley horses some time during the present week. Jockey Tommy Murray, Kay Spences high-class lightweight rider, underwent-a minor surgical operation here since his return from-Saratoga, and it is doubtful if he will be able to ride before Latonia opens. He is able to be up and about, but the incision made in the operation has not responded to treatment as rapidly as was expected. Frank itector,. who raced the erratic horse Sam McMeekin with much success in Kentucky last spring, is among the recent arrivals from Saratoga. He was among the Kentuckians who "drew a blank" at the Spa meeting. Every stall at Churchill Downs has been whitewashed and disinfected, and the same treatment will be given the stalls at Douglas Park. General manager Matt J. Winn of the Kentucky Jockey Club has appointed a sanitary inspector for both tracks, and his duties will be to look, after the cleanliness of the stabling facilities at both plants. Captain James Kinnnrney, who had charge of the policing arrangements at Churchill Downs and Latonia last spring, will be employed in a similar capacity at the Lexington track at the coining fall meeting. Former jockey Bryant Ott, who recently returned from France, where he was a member of the American Expeditionary Forces, has resumed his old position with the George J.. Lous stable. He brought back a French-bred fox terrier dog, which he culls "Grizette," and she and foiir puppies, to which, she recently gave birth, are a big attraction around the Long stable. "Grizette" has taken kindly to the thoroughbreds of the establishment ami she and her family of "allies" visit each stall several times a. day to liolmob AvitU tue worses.
