Racing at rim-lien during the remainder of the week will foe replete with attractive features. Wednesday three-year-olds will coiniete in the Pimlico Autumn Handicap at a mile and a quarter, on Thursday the Walden for two-year-olds at a mile will be run, Friday the second of the Serial Weight-for-Age races will feature the card and on Saturday the 0,000 Bowie Handicap will be the topliner. All of these stakes have attracted the best in training, and the week promises to furnish some of tiie best sport in the history of autumn racing at the Pimlico track. The Walden especially is attracting attention of turf patrons, as it serves from year to year the purpose of a trial race for the coming three-year-olds, and it is not improbable that the youngsters that will take part in this years renewal will prove to be the best band that will have been seen under colors since the running of the Futurity at Belmont Tark. Tho Futurity- - winner. .Man -,o " to start. He has gone into retirement. But John P. Grier, the Futurity contender, and the best colt in the stable of Harry Payne Whitney, is going to the post, and he will have Wildair, a colt that Tames Rowe believes to be as fast as he is, for running mate. John P. Grier was prevented from filling his several engagements at Laurel because of the muddy condition of the track through the last two weeks of the Maryland State Fair meeting, which made training him difficult. But James Howe himself is authority for the statement that the son of Whisk Broom II. and Wonder is in first-class condition again, and that he will, weather anil track conditions permitting, start in the Walden. BLAZES A SURE STARTER. Blazes, the crack youngster of the stable of Capt. Hal Parr, Baltimores leading sportsman, has had a special preparation for the Walden, and he will start rain or shine. Blazes does not have to have a track made to measure. He won in fast going at Saratoga and captured the Breeders Futurity at Lexington in mud over his ankles. If Max Hirsch does not start George W. Lofts fine Colin colt, On Watch, winner of the Capital Stakes and the Manor Handicap at Laurel Park, and of the Queen City Handicap at Latonia, lie still has Donuacona, a son of Prince Palatine and Kihlonan, to carry Ills colors. Donnacona has not shown Hirsch as much under silks as has On Watch, but that he is highly regarded by his connections is evident from the fact that Hirsch set a price of !i,000 on the colt. The Maryland-bred Carmandale, a son of Meridian, which won the East View Stakes and the Wakefield Handicap at Yonkers in July, showed at Laurel Park, when lie easily defeated Cobwebs in a race of three-quarters of a mile, that he had recovered his midsummer form, and he is to be a starter. So is David Haruin, the best youngster of the stable of W. R. Coe still in training. William Karrick did not bring Cleopatra to Maryland as he intended. The winner of the Champagne Slakes has been a trifle lame since she started at Yonkers the last time. Other probable starters are Irish Bream, Right Over Might, Kinnoul, Dominique, My Boots, Hasten On, Wedding Cake, Pontypridd, Kallipolls, Round Robin and Constancy. Samuel C. Hildreth regrets that a wrenched ankle will prevent Purchase from starting against his brilliant rival, Sir Barton, in the Pimlico Autumn Handicap, but lie thinks pretty well of his hand as it is. Mad Hatter, winner of the first 0,000 Latonia Championship, is to start against the son if Star Shoot and Lady Sterling. And Hildreth will have Lord Brighton and Thunderclap, the latter the .Annapolis Handicap winner and holder of thi American record of 2:29 for a mile and a half, to race with Mad Hatter if he thinks the Fair Play colt will need assistance. The best of these three-year-olds are in the Bowie with the veteran campaigners Cudgel, Lucullite, The Porter. Exterminator, Boniface, Midway, Fairy Wand, Be Frank, Corn Tassel, Vexatious, Naturalist aud Royce Rools.
