KEW YORK, April IS. On Long Island
th horsemen are In the thick of prepara
tion for the big New York rating searon
of. 1308. Bherpshrad Hay, Gravcscnd and
Belmont Park aro the three track where
the tremendous task of preparing a thou
and or more horses for racing I taken up
by the thoroughbred trainer. These
trainers are by no meana just beginning
their work of preparing, for the trainer's
day 1 full of care and trouble from one
year's end to another. He has weathered
the winter atorma, " watched the lender 2-year-old
doing their first preliminary gal
lops and looked carefully over the old
hones In his string to ace the chances of
their going through another season and
training well. The long months of shed
work and Indoor exercise are over and the
busiest time of the year is at hand for
every horsemsn.
It Is doubtful If ths morning scene at
either Bheepshead. Graveaend or Belmont
Park, with Us hundreds of horses exer
cising In ths delightful early morning air,
all ths life and action of a great outdoor
port In Its preliminary trlala, would stir
' ths heart of Governor Hughes or Wilbur
F, Crafts, the reformer, for these have
long since come to be regarded as men
without certain gracious humsn traits that
reflect all the brighter side of life.. At
Bheepshead all the extensive improvements
that were planned last year have been
finished. The new track Is completed in
very detail. The new track has not been
worked over to any great extent, the ma
jority of the training at Bheepshead Bay
being done over the yearling track. The
Improvements In the grandstand have been
completed and popular Bheepshead will ba
Immensely attractive In Us new drcst and
" Onitn Eager at the Tracks.
E. R. Bradley is down at the track al
most every morning and Is a keen watcher
of everything that goes on. David Gideon
is another who for many years has been
one of ' ths . earliest of the rallbirds, and
to this habit he owes much of his success
in the early part of the season. James R.
Keens is a frequent visitor to his stable
and nothing pleases him so much as to
have the t-year-olds brought out to look
, them over for Improvement and commen
dation of Trainer Rowe's efforts. Colli
Is In fine condition and his only blemish,
ths enlarged hock of last season, has al
most disappeared. Ths great string of 1-year-olds
in Rowe's charge is the wonder
and admiration of all the visitors to
Bheepshead Bay. Not many of the Keene
horses will be prepared for early events,
probably the earliest being Restlgouche
and Gretna Green. Over at the big' Whit
ney barns at the end of the Futurity
course A. J. Joyner, the new trainer for
Harry Payne. Whitney, is getting ac
quainted' with ths stable that was left
him by ths late John W. Rogers. Here is
another fine lot of 8-year-olds of royal
breeding, but few of them have been asked
to. do fast work up to the present time.
The big, upstanding youngster Is Right
Guard, by Hamburg, out of Endurance, by
Right; there Is a brown colt by Clifford,
out of Black Venus; a chestnut fltty by
Hamburg, out of Blue Girl, is in ths royal
collection, and another by Hamburg, out
of Irish Reel. Joyner Is greatly pleased
with his new string and they are sure to
do him credit. He will still train the Bel
mont youngsters he had before the death
of Mr. Rogers, but the Keene t-year-olds
have been turned over to .Trainer Rows,
Baby Wolf, the crack sprinter of the late
fall season, is doing finely. - Brookdalo
Nymph, Bar None and Bea Wolf of the
older division are In fine fettle and there
are great things In prospect for the pop
ular '"blue, brown cap", the coming season.
Boms Promtslaar Colts.
Ths old Joiner' stable is In charge of Us
former foreman, J. Schlosser, who Is a care
ful horseman. The 3-year-old Hessian' is
In this lot and is likely to be an early horse
for this year, instead of a late one as last
season. Lady Winifred, who was some
what disappointing. Is also In this string, ss
sr Rlalto, Golden Pearl and several very
promising 2-year-old fillies. .
Ths stabling at Bheepshead Bay is all
taken up for ths big strings that are yet
to come, and these are showing up -daily
from the south and the far west. William
Gerat is settled In his quarters with seven
teen head. Matt Byrnes hss a number yet

useful looking bunch and many others have
been going along very lively for some
time. '
Notter, the Jockey who rides for the
Keene stable this season, has reported to
James Rows and begun getting acquainted
with the 2-year-olds of that string, exercising-
them In -the mornings and being on
hand at an? time for active duty. He has
the appearance of a very chunky, heavy
youngster, but says that he cam easily ride
at 102. Under these conditions he will be
one of the stable's most valuable assets.
E. Dugan will ride first call for R. T.
Wilson, jr., and the horses of this string
in training at Belmont park already give
promise of being stake class and able to
hold their own in the best company.

One of the big strings at Gravescnd la
that of M. Murphy, in charge of James
Healey. The Murphy string is twenty
three in number and they have been VP
from Oceanport, N. J., for two weeks and
are swinging ' Into regular training work.
Recent arrivals from the far west at
Gravesend were John, Shields, i Walter Jen
nings' and Frank Regan. Shields has a
promising 3-year-old In Fore ' Guard, by
the famous campaigner. Advance Guard.
John Hynes Is one of the earliest of the
trainers to show In the morning at Grave
send and hla horses have had plenty of
good work. In addition to the string they
already had in training, Burlew & O'Neill
have taken over the Jumpers of Thomas
Hitchcock, jr., including California King,
Bayonet, Judge O'Gln, . Judge Post ' and
Algelone. Angclus, in the Burlew &
O'Neill string, is Jointly owned by them
and Mr. Hitchcock.
Over at Belmont park nothing like the
fast, work has been done as at Gravesend
and Bheepshead Bay, but the trainers there
are getting busy, especially In the last
few . days, and the horsvs are on the bit
and ready to run. One of the . big strings
at Bolniont park is that of Paul Rainey,
In charge of William Garth, twenty-four In
number. Outside of the many promising
I-year-olds, the Jumpers attract a great deal
of . attention. . Perseverance, T. 8. Martin,
Banctus and Vervane all are In tip-top con
dition. Another big string of Jumpers Is
that of Ellas Veltch, In which are Alfar,
Bandy Creeker, Palm, Hayseed, Fallaheen
and others. .

Modern Improvement Made on the
Famoa Old Coarse.
BALTIMORE, Md.. April 18. When the
Maryland Jockey club throws open the
gates of the historic old Plmllco course on
April 22, for Its annual "Spring meeting, it
will present a modern, up-to-date appear
ance that U has not possessed in a score
of years.
Last fall the officials of the Maryland
Jockey club decided to make ; some Im
provements at the track and for the last
two months workmen hRve been busy, at
the course constructing buildings and re
modeling the track, so' that when the meet
ing begins the Plmlico course will be one
of the prettiest south of New York.
A new paddock has been built on the
south side of the grand stsnd, the old pad
dock having adjoined the north side of the
stand. This paddock is a roomy Jid most
comfortable looking place for the saddling
of the runners. It has eighteen large
stalls and ample space for the parade of
the thoroughbreds before they are taken
o the track. Plenty of room Is left for
spectators. v
Adjoining the paddock, toward the grand
fUnd, are the new offices of the club, a
jockeys' room, and rooms for club mem
bers. The offices ore located on the first
floor and the Jockeys' quarters above. A'
gallery has been provided for those boys
who are compelled to remain In the Jock
eys' room when not riding-
In front of the stand the promensde has
been laid with brick, and a new Judges'
stand has taken the place of the old and
unsightly affair which obstructed the view
of so many persons In the stand at former
meetings. Numerou new stables have
boon built and accommodations are now
'provided for upward of 600 , The
track itself has been gteatly Improved. .

One BettlnaT Reform In New York
Tome Ont of AsjHation.
NEW YORK, April 18. Having soored the
first knockdown In the battle against the
anll-bettlng crusaders, the racing associa
tions naturally fuel confident of a complete
victory, and have started in already to
strengthen themselves, so to speak, against
any future attack on the sport.
While the fight was being wage4 , at
Albany the rwpresentatlves of tha ju5i.'y
club and the various tracks U. New York
have been discussing reforms hlch they
admitted were necessury. When th fight
waxtd warm these people began to realize
that the betting game has been conducted
too openly. Just what has been planned In
the way of retoims cannot be learned at
this time, but when the announcement Is
mad we can expect to hear that the so
called "dollar field" has been abolished
and the price of aduiUaion raise J so that
only the people who are comfortably ahlu
lo patronise racing will be catered to.
Thu racing associations realize that with
the abolition of the cheap field they will
rut otf a source of revenue that brought
thousands of dollars into the box office
evjy day. But the track owners are ready
to sacrifice even this big Item no as to
silenc tti clamor against the betting
One plan that was suggested early In the
year, and i' Mi is ,very likely to ' be
adopted, Is to fix an even price admission
to all parts of the track. It is argued that
If the general admission was placed at $5
it would keep away the cheap betters, who
made the dollar field their haven.
Then, again, particular attention is to
be given to the people who enter the
course, even though they should want to
put up the Jo. Children and minors are to
be barred entirely, the purpose being to
attract a clintole that can afford to gamble
on a race track.
There, will also be a charge In the betting
ring. It may even go as far as to shut out
the so-called pikers and fix the minimum
bet one can make at 13. This would be
effective. Many people have suggested
doing away with the exchange of money.
To accomplish this the bookmakers would
have to organize and establish a sort of a
clearing house, which would Issue betting
paper to any amount and which could be
used In the ring Just the same as money,
the bettor or bookmaker having a settle
ment every night or the next morning.
But no matter what changes are to be
made, It will be on the lines aforemen
tioned. . There will no longer be that lavish
ttilsplay of money, nor will the rough and
cheap element be catered to.
