ROGUISH EYE BACK IN TRAINING - - Roguish Eye, one of the high ranking two-year-olds of 1928, is to be brought back to the races after four years of inactivity and is slated to make his reappearance at New Orleans, where he was shipped Wednesday morning. This sterling son of Flittererold and Sly Wink has given evidence that he will stand training again, and J. J. Coughlin, noted Chicago alderman, believes he will take his rightful place in the handicap division next year. While Roguish Eye was a high-class racer, he was beaten in four of his seven starts. However, he won the Bashford Manor Stakes, which enriched the coffers of the Chicago politician to the extent of ,580. This was the only stake that he won. He was beaten by inches in the Belmont Futurity that year when High Strung, from the stable of Marshall Field, took first honors. Thus the first and second horses were Chicago-owned. That was the last appearance of Roguish Eye. He broke down shortly after his Futurity engagement and failed to stand training as a three-year-old, being a late withdrawal from the Kentucky Derbv. which was won bv Clvde Van Dusen. He was turned out J. J. Couglilin until 1930 and again an attempt was made to train the Coughlin star. He went along well and was made ready for a supreme effort. He gave his owner a thrill when he worked a mile and one-eighth in 1:53 at Washington Park, but he pulled up badly lame after that gallop and was thrown out of training again. It was then decided to retire him to the stud, but his get have thus far failed to live up to expectations. Ida ODay, one of the first mares to be served at his court, foaled twins.
