The well known California ciitic who, under the Dom de r,lurre of "Hidalgo'7 contributes much of great valae to the literature of the turf, very cornet) y cendemns the premature and excessive racing' to which two-year-olds in this country are eubjects. In a recent article taking* Barney Screiber's filly Sofala for his text, he says: "The mid-winter season is about gone and the springtide days are fairly upon ns And in re viewing the racicg proceedings since the holi-deye I find that the present eeason shows something without precedent in the history of the turf on either side of the water. I refer to the career cf the two year-old filly Sofala, owned by Barney Schreiber and gotten by Balgowan— Apozee, by Bishop. Mi filly has started eleven limeB sireedy this year and won nine times, being Bccond twice and never unplaced, the has never been beaten except when conceding a lump of weight to the wiener, and it is doubtful if as good a filly if her age can be found between the two cceonp. At the same time. I think somethitg the aid be done, not to discourage two-year-old racing entirely, but to prevent it being dene so early in the season. Just lock at Crescendo, undoubtedly the best two-year old ever fcaled in this state, and then ask yourself the question, what would he have been had he not been raced to death as a two-year ole .' Lock also at Tremont, Sensation, Proctor Knott end other brilliant horses that were thrashed to death before their maturity, end then ask yourself what is to be the future of the tbcrcrjgbbied hcrses in America if colts ard fillies, two-year-olds, are to be allowed to start eleven t;mes before the 15th of March . "I write this with no ill-feeliDg toward the owner of Bt fala, for I believe him to ba as upright a man as ever followed the vocation of a bookmaker. I know that he 'holds out' bis horses « henever he thinks they have any sort of a chence in a race and believe him to ba a man whose motto is, 'First, if with honor.' But I believe we have reached a period in our racing history when the re must be something done to stop this racing ef immature colts and fillies. The only remedy I can conceive of, is for the big Jockey Club at New Ycrk, which controls the eastern tracks, to adopt a resolution that no colt or filly that has raced prior to April 15, shall be eligible to start in any two-year-old event over the tracks at Morris Park. Sheeps-baad Bay or Qravesend, As nearly all of these January, February and March races are run for cheap purees, where the winner only gets $250, this would came many owners to think twice before starting their youngsters for such small moneys. •'Speaking of Sofala, I ran her back to the seventh generation the other day and found her to be about as hotly bred a bit of horseflesh as anything fcaled in America. On the sire's side she runB back to the dam of Medoc, who was the best stallion between Lexington (1850 and Sir Archy foaled 1805. From this great matron (Ycung Maid of the Oaks i came a galaxy of brilliant performers in Onondaga. Sensation, Acrobat, Glenmoie, Potomac, Guenn, St. Brandon. Hanamie, Eolian. Pardee, King Fox, Ban Fox and Ajex. And if I am not mistaken Medoc headed the list of wincing sires in 183S, '39, 40 and '41. He certainly did more to build up the reputation of Qlencoe and Wagner then any other sire of that period, for the Medoc mares outbred all others. On the dam's side we find ehe trace* to Gallopade, the founder of the 'Dance family,' and from this have come such marvelous performers as Reel. Banburg, Post Gnard, Los Angeles, Domino. Hamburg. Pee-eara, Kirk man and Bailinktel in America; and Starke (Goodwood Cup and Goodwooi Stakes) in England, as well as Prioress, wh) won the sensational Cesarewitch of 1857, after a triple dead heat with Queen Bess and El Hakim. When I was a boy Gallopade was considered our greatest matron, with Brittania (dam of Verifier and second dam of Fosser and Vauxhall) in second place. Now we concede the premiership to Levity and a glance at Sofala's tabulation shows all three of these Belgravian dames, Gallopade being represented twice. "Sofala ehows 28 crosses of Pot-8-os, 26 of Ben icgbrougb, 25 of Waxy, 22 of Orville. 29 of Trumpeter. 22 of Flcrizel, 16 of Diomed, 9 of Biacklcck and 6 of that wonderful little black hors e Sir Hercules, the last of the get of Whalebone and probably bis best. She also traces to six winners of the Oaks, Eleanor, Cobweb, Miss Letty, MaLuella, Shoveller end Princess, something that is likewise exceptional in a mare with native parentage. A table of winning sires in her pedigree show b that the contributing stellicnB got 43 winners of the Derby, 42 of the St. Leger. 34 of the Two Thousand Guineas, 18 of the Ascot Gold Cup and 19 of the Cham pagne Stakes at Doncaster, This is what you may call breeding from winning families with a vengeence; and if that is not good enough in itself, she is inbred to Old Alexander's Australian, whom I rank as third to Laamington and Glencoe among imported stallions; and in advance tf Glenelg. Bonnie Scotland, Billet and Buckden, ranking in the order named. And while Australian on'y got one sire (Spendthrift) that could be termed strictly first-class look at what a lot of other useful sires he got: Second Class. Third Class. Springbok Rutherford Joe Daniels Leinster Fellowcraft Barmach Lath Miser Wilful Wilaidle Chimney Bweep ''Take the get of the eleven horses just named, for the past sixteen years, and where will you find (outside of Leamington), any other stallion, native or imported, whose sons have the same amount cf money to their credit? And even in the case of Leamington, it must be remembered that hie best son, Iroquois, was out of an A ustralian mare. If you wish to urge the claims of Bonnie Scotland, you must remember that Bramble, the only one of his sons entitled to be ranked as first class, is also out of an Australian mare. And there you are." trainim; at morris park. The eastern horses are rapidly becoming fit to go to the races. Under the influences of weather which permits constant work on the track many are already in form to face the ting. Of work done at Morris Park Monday the Morning Telegraph says : "The Morris Park track was in the pink of condition yesterday. The trainers who make their headquarters there were not slow in appreciating the situation and sent their horses over the ground at satisfying speed. " Several strings quartered at the course are to have a try for honors and money at Aqueduct and other early meetings. The Washington contingent, including James McLaughlin, with seventeen, have already gone to Banninge, and Will iam Oliver will go in a day or two with a couple. "The latest arrival st the course is a string of racers owned by Mr. H. K. Vingut, who has a lot of five stabled at No. 20. on the hill. The lot, which is trained by Mr. Vingut himeelf, is com posed as follows : Bay colt, Konkonkome, 4, by Lord Hartington — Vulpine, and the 2-year-olds Director, full brother to Diversion, by Magnetizer— Di Vernon; Beau Brocade, by Kin gston— Augusta Belle: Balloon, by Potomac — Ballyrea, and Pigeon Roost, by Potomac— Ethelain. Konkonkome is a timber topper that has been tried well over the jumps, and the youngsters, who are a nice lot on looks, should do credit to the gentleman owner and trainer who is the first who has been bold enough to occupy both position. "Gentleman training is a new thing in this country, although it is indulged in often abroad, and if other p;ntlemen who are fond of the turf were to indulge in it, it would go far toward elevating the sport. "Trainer A. J. Joyner's eet. which are to see the flag for the first time at the Aqueduct meet ing, were eent down the line at quite some speed. The youngsters of this contingent, which included the two-year-olds Masterful, Ford, Mataozas. Mistigri and Presgrave, breezed a quarter in 28 seconds, The three-year-olds Gonfalon, David Garrick. Maribert and The Chamberlain turned a half in It seconds easily. "Mr. Joyner's four-year-old Autumn has been fired for a splint and was not out on the track, Jockey Maher, who is looking spink and span, and ready for what is to come, exercised the youngsters Ganymede, Perrimore and the three-year-old The Chamberlain. The three-year-old Mercer and the youngster Russian, who are to go to the Queens County Jockey Club meeting, got abort breathers at something better than half speed. "Trainer T. J. Realey'e string, of which many are to make their appearance at Aqueduct, got all that was coming to them in a training way. Kinnikinnick, who has lately been placed on the list, has recovered sufficiently to be allowed a half in 5Ps seconds. The youngsters bred as follows breezed through the front stretch at better than a half speed clip: Brown colt, by Longstreet— Glenview; bay colt, by Iroquois — Brunette; chestnut colt, by Loyalist— Blue Dress; bay colt, by Lougstreet — Pretense; bay filly, by St. Saviour— Lady Violet; bay colt, by St. Saviour— ('lariesima; chestnut colt, by Ormonde— Mies I'rummei; bay filly, by Knight of Ellerslie— Sister Louise; chestnut gelding, by St. Saviour— Sophia, and bay colt, by Knight of Ellers.ie— Zangara. "Trainer William Karrick. who is to take a large string to Aqubdnct. had a busy morning of it. Dan Rice was allowed a five furlong torn in 1:09. Baby Bill, who is expected to go to Washington for the spring meeting at Ben-nings, turned the Withers mile in 1:55, A set of youn liters, which included the filly Cherries. by Tenny — Puffer, galloped over the course and breezed through the backstretch at three parts speed. Mr. Karrick's handicap candidate, Kirk-wood, was indulged in a half mile breather in 58 seconds. The handsome Meehanus trotted and cantered. "Steve L'Hommedieu's Bold Knight and the two-year-old Elmore L., by Eaher Deroche-meut. which have been in Mr. Karrick's care, have been sold and will be trained at Grave-send by H. E. Leigh. "T. B. Alexander's promising colt Henry Mul-1ig8, by Spendthrift— Memorial, in Karrick's stable, did a quarter at better than half speed and looks like a runner. "Trainer Jamas Boden's string look the picture of health and condition. The fast Firearm, which is to be pointed for the Metropolitan Handicap, is hard and ready and turned a half handily in 5* seconds. The dainty filly Donna Henrietta, by Knight of Ellerslie— Belladonna, rattled off a quarter mile of ground in 27 seconds without taking a long breath. Okettee and the youngster Temath breezed a short distance at half speed, and look as if they would make good whenever they are asked. "Trainer and owner William Oliver's clever CONTINUED UN SECOND FAOB. LONG DISTANCE RACING. The interest in the Bush Cup, two miles and a quarter, run at New Orleans on March 14, indicates that enthusiasm in long-distance racing is not yet deed, bat only sleeping, and awaiting the opportunities to arouse it. There were six starters, a large field for a long-distance contest these days, and the time of the race, 3:56i, was fast, and may be classed as among the best performances at the distance. Albartvale, the winner, is a bay horse, by Albert— Mont-vale, and though a confirmed cripple, ran the race in the same time that The Friar, a high class horse, woa the Brighton Cup in 1897, when his opponents were Sunny Slope and Ben Brush. The result cf the Bush Cup shows that if a cripple can go two miles and a quarter in such good timi. there ought to ba a sufficient number of comparatively sound horses, unit for sprinting, to make good fields in mare fraqaant long-distance faces, if racing associations would offer greater financial inducements for owners to enter their horses. There caa ba little doubt but that if more of the over-uight events daring the season were over distances of from one mile and threa-qaartars to four mi'.ei, tha innovation would ba popular with the rac a-going public. It would* aUo ba a move toward a return to old principles in establishing those thoroughbred families which should be perpetuated for speed and stamina combined. Speed, with stamina to continue it over a distance of ground, was the pillar upon which the present-day thoroughbred was built, and the excellence of the race horse of toiay is due to the jndicious selection and combination of those strains of blood which had baen tried and found to possess the desired characteristics. If, however, we continue to breed for epeed alone, to the neglect of conformation and staying eaoachy the thoroughbred must return to the quarter horse. An examination of the breeding records of America, as well as England, will show convincingly that the best sires have bean those horses which have been able to go a distance, while many of the sprinters have been failures in the stud, no matter how favorable their opportunities. The Bush Cup should be a fixture, and every racing association should have a number of races at the cup distance.— Turf Field and Farm. NOTES OF TMJtt TURF.

If we may credit our English contemporaries there is a chance that Flying Fox may once mere sport silk in Eagiand, Mous. Blanc having shown a desire to start him for the Ascot Cnp if John Porter will agree to continue to train Orme'a greatest ton. The Sporting Times says : "We are glad that Mods, Blanc has bought Flying Fox, because he is a sportsman, and there it a ehanca that he will run the horse f jt the Ascot Cup. He has made a request to John Porter that he shall train him for him, and the answer will bs given after Mr. Porter has communicated with his employers. Kingscltreis a very 'close borough,' but we should imagine that in this case no objection will b i made, and if that is so, Flying Fox will probably be eeen at Aecot, and should he win the cup, a Fren:h man will know how Englishmen can cheer a French victory. Should there be any bitch about the permission. Flying Fox will probably not carry silk again. In all this there is very strong common sense, and for our own part, if Fljing Fox is to be no longer trained by Mr. Porter, we hope that he will not run again. If, in other hands, he were to be upset and not win we should inevitably hear it said. 'It would have been different if he had remained with old John.' Flying Fox is a 'horse of the century.' Of that there can be no doubt. Beiog a horse of the CBntury, heis different to other horses, and in the hands of those who are not well acquainted with him he might, for racing purposes at any rate, become almost worthless, Even now he likes his mouthful, and is not particular whether it is from the man on his back, the horse that is leading him in his work, or from the green grass. In the middle of a strong gallop he will at times take a snatch at the herbage, and woe to the unwary jockey, as, unless he is quick and lets the reins run through his fingers he will pull him over his head, a thing that has happened more than once. With a horse like this a very little might make him 'go' in his temper as hia sire, Orme, did, and we believe his dam is not much better." As the racing season of 1899-1900 on the Pacific Coast is drawing to a close it seems to have been a very satisfactory one. It is true that this statement may eeem rather out of line if we are supposed to believe the lurid articles which have appeared from time to time in the columns of the daily papers devoted to sporting news reflecting upon the methods employed at both tracks and charging favoritism and other unfair dealings. But viewed from an unprejudiced standpoint the Pacific Coast racing will compare favorably with the turf in the east in the matter of jockeys and horses. Tha good horses which are favorites are winning a satisfactory percentage of their races, and the fact that the poorer horses quite frequently are defeated, (when false favorites among thoir own kind), is by no means tha unhealthy indicator which so many affect to believe. The percentage of winning favorites is proof that the racing is on its merits, and the present California season of racing appears to be distinctly a benefit ti the American thoroughbred. —San Francisco Breeder and Sportsman.
