1 LQUISVILLE TURF NOTES 1 A. Martinez, an apprentice, is here with the Li. E. Komorous stable, trained by Bert Michell. Martinez is a native of Cuba. The division of Charles Bacharachs Southland Stable, which Cliff Porter raced at New Orleans and Arlington Downs, unloaded at Churchill Downs. There were thirteen in the shipment and soon after the horses had been put away, Porter left for Lexington to arrange for the transfer of seven more from Charles Blacks farm, where they wintered. James T. Looneys famous Kentucky Burgoo, will be on the Derby festival week menu here, Joe Lurding having engaged him to furnish the tasty nutriment at the Lurding Gardens during Derby week. This famous dish was a feature of E. R. Bradleys charity day meetings at Idle Hour Farm for several years. Jockey Dublin Taylor, who had been inactive since he suffered a fracture of the left ankle, shortly after the opening of the New Orleans season, resumed galloping horses Friday. He is with Mose Goldblatt. The stables of A. B. Letellier and A. S. Lewis are due at the Downs, the former from Arlington Downs and the latter from Lexington. Smith Baker, with ten owned by his father, Col. R. L. Baker, and two belonging to C. R. Jordan, arrived here from Lexington. Older members of the stable, all owned by Colonel Baker, are Peggy Lehmann, Brush Down, Squall, Prince Vic, Nored, Cherokee Red, Prince Fluz and Yantis. The Baker two-year-olds are a bay son of Justice F., and a chestnut filly by the same sire, while Jordans pair of beginners are colts by Mars and Monks Way. The horses A. Lee Darnaby will race here were unloaded at Douglas Park. They shipped well from Lexington and the string of eight is headed by the two-year-old Bos-tonian colt, Boston Pal, owned by Charles R. Thompson, mayor of Lexington, and reported to have outworked all the two-year-olds at the Kentucky Association track. Boston Pal is eligible for the Bashford Manor Stakes. William E. Schmidt, Chicago patron and owner of the Superior Stable, is a visitor. He hopes to select a trainer for his string of eight here within a few days. An inspection of the stable his horses will occupy at the Downs was made Thursday by Howard Oots, who motored over from Lexington. The OofjS string, in charge of Howard Wells, is due to arrive Saturday.
