THREE-YEAR-OLDS OF 1935 Brief Resume of Records of a Group of Three-Year-Olds and Their Prospects in the Current Years Racing: Editors Note This is the twentieth and last of a series of articles covering the three-year-olds of 1935, their racing credentials as juveniles and prospects during the current year. By NORRIS HOYDEN. A number of three-year-old prospects were not mentioned previously in this series, although from among them may come one or more outstanding members of the division this season. A few of this group have been stake winners, but all of them, at one time or another, exhibited flashes of good ability.. The high points of their records will be "touched upon briefly, as follows: BLUEBEARD, black colt, by Blue Larkspur Herodias, by The Tetrarch," owned by Mrs. R. H. Fairbanks, trained by Art Goldblatt. He was recently sold by William R. Coe. his breeder, to Mrs. Fairbanks for 5,000 after he had won the Santa Catalina and San Pasqual Handicaps at Santa Anita, but he was a tiring fifth in the Santa Anita Derby. As a juvenile, Bluebeard won two of his ten starts. He has good speed and fair class, but is a doubtful stayer, i CALUMET DICK, bay colt, by Gallant Fox Martha Snow, by Sir Martin, owned by Calumet Farm, trained by B. B. Williams. He ran third to Sun Fairplay and Flight of Gold in his first start, won an allowance event at one mile over -Diablesse, Toolbox, Satrapal and others, and then ran unplaced in the Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes. Calumet Dick is a big colt, very well bred, which came to hand late last season, and may do the same this year. He lacks early speed, but apparently favors a route. CHANCEVTEW, bay gelding, by Chance Shot Look Up, by Ultimus, owned by J. J. Flanagan, trained by Thomas Oliphant. A cast-off of the J. E. Widener stable, Chanceview won a maiden race easily at Houston last spring, then captured the juvenile Stakes at that course, and in his only other start was beaten a nose by Phildia in a two-year-old stake at Arlington Downs. He did no more racing last year because of sickness. Chanceview, a half-brother to. the good filly Buckup, from a half-sister to Sweeping Light, has trained admirably for the Kentucky Derby and may be a good colt. COUNT ARTHUR, chestnut colt, by Reigh Count Abbatissa, by Ballot, owned by -Mrs. John Hertz, trained by F. S. Hackett. Ran second to Debs Delight, and second to Scatter Brain, and was unplaced in three other starts as a two-year-old. Is a well-bred, good-looking colt which should improve as Reigh Counts offspring, usually do. ESPOSA, chestnut filly by Espino Quick Batter, by Ruantell, owned by Middleburg Stable, trained by J. F. Schovr. Showed much quality by winning Remsen Handicap over Mantagna, etc., and running third in Hopeful Stakes, beating many good two-year-olds. Is bred to stay, and acts like a stayer, and has a chance to be the leader of her division. FINANCE, bay colt by Bull Dog Bourse, by Broomstick, owned by Coldstream Stud, trained by A. B. Gordon. Won a maiden race out of twelve starts, but ran with fair juveniles throughout last season. May be better than rated and is training well for the Kentucky Derby. GALLANT PRINCE, bay colt by Gallant Fox Merry Princess, by Spanish Prince n., owned by Belair Stud, trained by J. Fitz-simmons. Won Maplewood Handicap at Rockingham Park and was third in the Nursery Stakes at Belmont. Beat Roman Soldier, Preeminent, Albuquerque, etc.,- in Maplewood Handicap. Bred to stay, acts like a stayer and comes from improving lines. GOOD FLAVOR, bay colt by St. James Pepsin, by Chicle, owned by M. L. Schwartz, trained by Max Hirsch. Ran second to Nellie Flag in Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes after suffering poor racing luck. Beat fair fields in two overnight events at Jamaica. Is good looking colt, well-bred and, off his race back of Nellie Flag, rates consideration. MANTAGNA, bay gelding by Sweep Natica, by Stefan the Great, owned by Mae-mere Farm Stable, trained by G. E. Phillips. Appeared failure last year until autumn, when he beat fair field in fast time at Aqueduct and ran second in Remsen Handicap. Displayed steady form in Florida, running second in Hialeah Stakes, third in Bahamas Handicap, second to Black Helen in Florida Derby and winning Derby Consolation over Sun Fairplay, Bloodroot, Brannon, etc. Does not appear a topnotcher, but should go well in minor stakes. MISTER GANDER, bay colt by Chicle-Flying Witch, by Broomstick, owned by C. V. Whitney, trained by T. J. Healey. Is brother to Whichone and Mother Goose, and started only twice last year, running second to Evangelist and defeating Maddening, Douceur and other fair juveniles in his other effort. Has trained well this spring and is held in high regard. I PITTER PAT, chestnut colt by Pennant-Ruth Law, by Broomstick, owned by Belair Stud, trained by J. Fitzsimmons. Won the Flash Stakes, beating Try Sympathy, last year and was second in Albany Handicap, also was second to Ted Clark in Santa Margarita Handicap and third behind Bluebeard and Sound Advice in Santa Catalina Handicap at Santa Anita last winter. May turn out to be a stayer, but it is doubtful, although he may he a smart miler like his brother Byrd. POLAR FLIGHT, bay colt by Witchmount-or Byrd Damoris, by Sain, owned by F. M. Alger, Jr., trainedby J. Rushton. Was third in United States Hotel Stakes, third in Walden Handicap, second in Pimlico Handicap and won two bvernight races at Santa Anita. Had no chance in Santa Anita Derby for which he was favorite. Is natural stayer and seems good colt. SHOELESS JOE, brown colt by Black Servant Barefoot, by Cudgel or Fair Play, owned by Conn Smythe, trained by E. Davis. Ran third in ten starts last year, but showed fine effort in Belmont Futurity. Is good looking big colt and may spring a surprise. SKIP IT, chestnut colt by Diavolo Wiggle Waggle, by Chicle, owned by Calumet 3 Farm, trained by B. B. Williams. Was unplaced only once in five starts early last summer before being retired-because of unsoundness. Beat Western Lad, Blue Armor and Toro Flight in his lone victory and raced against fair juveniles in his other races. Is fine looking colt, bred to stay and apparently has recovered from his lameness. He will bear watching. SOUND ADVICE, bay colt by Wise Counsellor Wise Mother, by Von Tromp, owned by Mrs. F. M. Alger, trained by J. Rushton. Won Nursery Handicap at Belmont and was second to Commonwealth in Endurance Handicap at Bowie. Displayed fair form last winter, being badly messed around .in Santa Anita Derby and losing to Bluebeard by a nose in Santa Catalina Handicap.

WESTON, bay colt by Nocturnal or Sun Flag Madcap Princess, by Under Fire, owned by Braedalbane Stable, trained by T. B. Young. Won two of his three starts as a juvenile, including Cincinnati Trophy, In which he beat average lot. Trimmed First Entry, Stay and Roman Soldier in first victory.

WHISKOLO, bay colt by Diavolo Stone-chat, by Chatterton, owned by Milky Way Farms Stable, trained by R. McGarvey. Came to races late last year, ran second to Gillie in Santa Anita Derby and second to Roman Soldier in Texas Derby. Seems a good second class colt of plodding sort. YOUNG NATIVE, bay colt by Pompey Giggles, by Polymelian, owned by Brookmeade Stable, trained by R. A. Smith. Beat Chance Sun easily last spring in maiden victory and was third to Plat Eye and Psychic Bid in National Stallion Stakes, his only other start. Tired in his Chesapeake Stakes effort recently.
