CHICAGO, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 18, 1903. PRICE 5 CENTS Wintering at Nashville WINTERING AT NASHVILLE. "By the time the new year rolls around there will be added to the already large band of racehorses now in winter quarters at Cumberland Park one of the most noted performers in the country," says the Nashville American of Dec. 16. "While not definitely decided, it is more than probable that The Picket, Falsetto's fleet son, winner of this year's American Derby, will be eating oats in one of the barns. Secretary Russ-wurra, while on his recent trip to Louisville, Lexington and Cincinnati, in the interest of securing stables to come to Nashville, had a talk with Carl Jungbluth, of the firm of Middleton & Jungbluth, the Louisville turfmen, relative to shipping their stable to this city to be prepared for next year's campaign. Mr. Jungbluth stated that Carroll Reid, trainer for the firm, had not yet made up his mind regarding a wintering place, but had expressed a desire to come to Nashville. He stated that they would not winter at Churchill Downs as in the past, and if comfortable quarters could be prepared for them here he would like to accept Mr. Russ-wurm's offer to make Cumberland Park his training ground during the cold months. Carroll Reid was away on a hunting trip and Mr. Russwurm did not get to see him. Mr. Jungbluth promised the Nashville Secretary he would wire him further in regard to the matter in a few days. Mr. Russwurm also saw a number of other owners during his trip, and from what he could learn at least 200 more horses will be shipped here during January. In this collection will be the stables of "Woodford Clay, who brought out Lady Amelia and sold her for $17,500 to E. R. Thomas the past season; Joe Pugh, Jim Baker, Baker & Gentry, A. Turney, Will Toung and several others. These stables are now stationed in Kentucky, the horses having been turned out in the blue grass region for a short rest before being taken up for the 1904 season. Besides these, E. S. Gardner will come down from Avondale with twenty-five royally bred sons of Masetto and Himyar about the first of January. The coming of all these horses will swell the colony now at Cumberland Park to 450 head, giving to Nashville the largest winter collection in the country. The management is making many improvements for the convenience of the thoroughbreds, and expects to be able to take care of all who desire to come. Besides improvements on the tracks and various barns, new roads are being built through the park. Macadam is being used in constructing the roadways. This will not only give good drainage in bad weather, but will add considerably to the appearance of the park." Gossip of the Turf GOSSIP OF THE TURF. Good news comes from the winter home of another distinguished horse, that went into winter quarters with his future as a racing proposition shrouded in doubt This is Golden Maxim, J. P. Kraner's good three-year-old, that should have been returned winner of the Realization in the opinion of many who saw the race. J. J. McLaughlin, who has trained the colt during his entire racing career, is strong in the belief that should no further accident befall the Golden Garter colt, he will come to the races next year a good horse. So strong is this belief that Golden Maxim will be named in all the important stakes which close early in January, including the spring handicaps. "Golden Maxim was fired some weeks ago," says McLaughlin, "and is just now recovering from the effects of it His legs are hard and look in the best of condition. If he continues to improve, I see no reason why he should not race creditably next season. My horses, Golden Maxim with the rest, have been running out in paddocks built for the purpose, and are only housed up at night. As a result, they show a rugged, hardy appearance. I find they do much better than when kept closely boxed up all the time." "For the last three months of racing at St. Louis last year, Starter Dade did not fine a jockey," says the St. Louis Republic of Dec. 16. "This was so unusual and unheard of that Secretary Woodruff of the Western Jockey Club wrote to Secretary Hachmeister, asking him if he had not forgotten to remit jockey fines to the proper quarter the W. J. C. When Mr. Hachmeister informed Mr. Woodruff that Mr. Dade had not levied any fines, the Chicagoan wrote Mr. Hachmeister a letter in which he said that it was well that he Hachmeister was a man of well-known probity. 'Were it not so,' said Mr. Woodruff, T might think you were holding out on the W. J. C In two days last week Starter Fitzgerald fined the boys riding at New Orleans $400. That is more than Mr. Dade fined all his boys in 184 days of racing. Asked to explain his system of moving starts, Dade said: 'The most important thing you have got to do is to control the boys. Get them to come up walking and without nudging and hunching their mounts. Then it is simple. I found it hard to get them to do this. Finally I found a remedy. When I saw a boy nervous or overeager and acting as if he were going to try a "steal," I at once laid down the button. Hence, they saw the gate could not go up, and that their super-alertness was of no use. Then I made them come up and stand flatfooted and break. I never sent the field back any distance, and made them walk up again. If I missed the first parade, I made them stand flat' To Dade unquestionably belongs the honor of originating, or rather perfecting the moving start to a gate. He used it at Del-mar in July. Joe Murphy saw him work it at Kinloch. When Murphy went back to Canada he put Maurice Cassidy next to the trick. Cassidy sprung it at Kenilworth and Aqueduct, and got all the credit for it Caldwell first tried the moving start ten years ago, but could not make it go." Horsemen are all agog at Lexington, Ky., oyer a very sensational performance by the yarling chestnut filly, by Meadowthorpe Lucinda B., by Wagner, owned by the well-known trotting horse driver, George B. Hayes. The latter, in a friendly banter with another trainer, wagered a dinner for a party of friends that, carrying 136 pounds, his filly could run an eighth in twelve seconds. To the surprise of those who witnessed the trial, the daughter of Meadowthorpe with this crushing weight on her ran the distance in 111 seconds. Hayes bought her at the yearling sale f her breeder, W. L. Simmons, for the insignificant sum of $100. Word has been received in New York that George B. Hill is seriously ill at Silverbrook, N-. J. This unwelcome news was that the young trainer was confined to his bed and present indications are that he will be under the care of the doctor for some time. The horses in the care of Hill are all stabled at Monmouth Park, and at the close of the Bennings, meeting they were shipped to those quarters. Ingleside Form Chart INGLESIDE FORM CHART.

Hainault was in a soft spot, far outclassed his field and leisurely took a long and winning lead in the stretch, after indulging the early pacemaker.

Floriana Belle, after showing good early speed, tired badly, in the stretch. Caroburn made the running for half the journey and turned for home with an apparently safe second place, but tired all over in the last furlong. Negrusca, nearly left, closed up considerable ground.

A car load of horses left the Latonia racetrack Wednesday for New Orleans. In the car were horses, the property of F. A. Do-herty, Sam Jones, Ed Stringer, A. J. Bresch and Billy Woods. Woods, who is a very clever man with the runners, sent Ravens-bury, which was the "Hindoo" of the Newport track last winter and was reinstated at the last meeting of the Western Jockey Club. Yearling trials produced fast time by several members of M. H. Tichenor & Co.'s baby brigade last Tuesday morning at Memphis. A colt by The Pepper worked three-eighths in 6:37 1t5, which was regarded as the best , accomplished by the Chicago stable. An un- named colt by Azra Mishap, and therefore jA full brother to Jaubert, did almost as well kpthe son of The Pepper. It was considered very hard luck for Baron De Rothschild, the principal employer of O'Connor, the American jockey, to whom he pays a retaining fee of $15,000 per annum, that his stable barely won enough this year to pay the jockey's salary. W. S. Fanshawe, owner of Heno, has leased from Clarence H. Mackay the following yearlings, which are now in charge of William Lakeland, at Brighton Beach: Chestnut colt, by Ayrshire Miss Ellie.

Address C. H. JAMES, P. 0. DRAWER I, HEW ORLEANS, Ik. ED AUSTIN Member Western Bookmakers' Association. Turf Correspondent and CoHaralssloaer, McCIi08KEY BUILDING, NEW OKLEAN8, IiA. (From the New Orleans Daily States, December 17). "A Killing on The Messenger." Eddie Austin and his friends cut quite a "melon" yesterday afternoon with The Messenger, the winner of the last race. It was the well known bookmaker that led the plunge on the St. Louis owned horse. As good as 20 to 1 could have been secured at one time, but after Austin quit betting, the price had been cut to fives. The Messenger was not thought to have a chance by bookmakers or the public. It was known that he broke down in St. Louis last summer and at that time it was thought that his racing days were over. His owners thought that perhaps they could patch him up for one more race and shipped him to this city from St. Louis. They went along slow with the old gelding and finally got him ready. Yesterday was the first time in months that The Messenger had paraded to the post. Austin's "dockers" informed him that the old gelding had been working -well and that he had an exceptionally good chance to win the race. Austin watched the old fellow in his preliminary gallop and then strolled into the ring. He knew that The Messenger was as good as he ever was and -was worth a bet. He expected to see him at a short price in the betting, but to his surprise the old gelding was quoted at 20 to 1. There are very few men in this country that "have got" anything on Austin when it comes down to judging - prices, but at a glance he saw that the odds were away out of line on his good thing. It never took him a pair of minutes to get busy. He went down the line betting each book as much as they would take at 20 to 1. It never took the bockies long to rub. In a jiffy. The Messenger was held at sixes. This did not prevent Austin from going ahead. He continued to bet until the horses were sent away. How much he won on the race is not known, as Austin never talks about his winnings or his losses. WIN AT NEW ORLEANS- 2--Specials Daily 2, Wired at 12 O'clock. Dally Wire and Letter Service.

Russwurm, of Cumberland Park, a couple of very promising two-year-olds that have never been raced. One is a St. George colt called Protection, for which Wishard paid $600 as a yearling, and the other is Clyde, by the English stallion Clyde Miss Jumbo II., which cost $1,600 as a weanling. They both went amiss last spring. Clyde is a full brother to a very noted mare in England. The colts will be taken up and trained for 1904. Scott Harlan will have Clyde in charge, while Protection will be handled by John Ferris. Mr. Russwurm has also purchased from Mr. Wishard the imported mare Arrow, for breeding purposes. Arrow will probably be bred to The Commoner. Lady of the West, owned by John Ferris, is another mare to join the Secretary's band of matrons. Mr. Russwurm secured her at the close of the season. She is now in foal to Handcuff, a son of Hanover Black Maria. Handcuff was purchased in the east some years ago by Mr. Ferris, and is one of the best bred Hanovers in the country. While at Latonia John Ferns purchased the three-year-old Ally Navasota, which proved such a sensation at New Orleans in the spring of 1902. She won several stakes down there and afterwards sold for several thousand dollars. Navasota proved a disappointment after leaving New Orleans and lid not run as expected. Mr. Ferris will rest her up and race her next year. She is a daughter of Hermence, and as all Her-mences improve with age, it is not unlikely that she will prove a fair breadwinner in her four-year-old form. Spinel, the noted cripple which Mr. Ferris has had on his hands for the past two years, will be educated over the jumps this winter and next year used as a jumper on the Canadian circuit. Gregor K. will not be seen in public for some time. The gelding has been troubled with an incipient splint on the nigh foreleg. He was fired for this ailment recently. W. M. Hedges, the owner of the horse, said that he will not throw Gregor K. out of training entirely, but will keep him in light training. His next racing, however, will in all probability be done in 1904.

While at Lexington a few days ago, J. B. Respess said that Dick Welles has gone into winter quarters without a scratch of any sort on him. He was weighed the other day and turned the scales at 1,140 pounds, which is 100 pounds more than he weighed when he broke the circular track record for a mile, which illustrates how high in flesh he runs. He stands now at sixteen hands high and is remarkable for his great depth through the hearth, which no doubt is the cause of his lasting so long in his races, even after showing in the early paces record-breaking speed. Respess admits seeing one horse this year which he was doubtful of Dick Welles beating. Said the successful horseman: "The day McChesney won the Oakwood Handicap at Washington Park he looked to he like he could have beaten any horse that ever wore iron. I would run Dick Welles against him, or, tor that matter, any other horse, but I would nave been uneasy as to the result, for Big Mac was a holy terror that afternoon." Respess says Dick Welles will go any distance horses run. He has worked him a mile and a quarter as fast as 2:07 with 125 pounds up. He says the impression he could not stay comes by him not running King Eric's son in the American Derby. "In the early winter," said he, "I really intended fitting him for that race. He had wintered, however, go high in flesh I feared a rushing preparation might knock him out for the season, so I made no effort to get him ready for the big event. Fit and well, Dick Welles would win a race like the American Derby as easy as he picks up an ordinary six-furlong scramble, and I would bet more money than I ever wagered in my life that he could beat The Picket, the winner of that race this year, any distance." Respess now has twenty-nine mares m his Ohio stud. He will breed the bulk of his collection of stud matrons this year to Maceo, but those too closely related in blood to Byron McClelland's great two-year-old to be bred to him, he will mate to Belle's Commoner, the son of Hanover, that he essayed to win the American Derby with in 1902. J. W. Russwurm. secretary of the Tennessee Breeders' Association, says that Tom Hayes is thinking of entering Gold Heels, the former Arnold stallion, in the World's Fair Handicap next season when the event is reopened. George Hendrie of Detroit may also enter Reservation. Both horses are now at Cumberland Park, Nashville. One of the features at Cumberland Park this season is a night school for the apprentice boys of the track. The boys are equipped with books, slates and other aids to learning, free of charge, and it is said that quite an attendance of youngsters has been secured already. Several owners now at Nashville are said to be preparing for a season at Hot Springs in case dates are allotted to that track. John Ferris, S. E. Parmer and two or three others expect to race there. James C. Rogers, of Lexington, has sold to trainer J. C. Milam a half interest in the two-year-old brown colt Toupee, by Tenny Flores, by Victory, and the chestnut yearling filly, by Goodrich Melody, by Longfellow. The filly is a half sister to Harry Beck and Prince of Endurance. Dr. Keough has punch fired at Memphis the horses The Conqueror II. and Skilful, the latter belonging to Charles Ellison. Judge Himes is slated for "firing" this week. The Kentucky Derby winner and winner of the Hawthorne Handicap has ailing legs, and a long rest will be afforded him. f " "I Publishers of the Official Organ of the Western Jockey Club All the Turf C ) - All Tracks j News Per- " r34 are Fully I61 & & fcfcfcfc&fcfc Reported i Edited - S " " Daily FormSheets ssa Racing jss & Form .
