He has an abiding faith In the virtue
of blue grass for thoroughbreds, and
has leased the Falkland Stud at Lexing

ght will buy It. Ethelbert will lead
Ills stud for the present. There was
Some talk that Mr. Belmont Intended

A number of noted raclgg men from
this country and abroad have visited
New York during tha weak. Among them
wsa George M. Hendrie of the Highland
Park Jockey club of Detroit.
'The decision to hold one meeting st

like s wise one." said Mr. Hendrte, "and
the fact that the dates clash with a part
of our meeting at Highland Park will
not materially affect either course ac

broad grounds the one meeting Ifleig. Is a
good one. We may curtail our Fort

Another notable visitor was W. P.
Hlggs of the Maryland Jockey club.
He la enthusiastic over the racing out
look at Baltimore. He said:
"We hope before many years to have
a number of valuable stakes on our
schedule, but. of course, will begin mod
estly." It lias been proposed that ws
give a stske for two-year-olds at the
earing meeting next year, which .will
have 11,000 added money, and a race at
one mite and a half for the fall meeting,
to which will be added 31.600. These
stakes to close a few weeks In advance
of the date of decision.
'This will be our start, hut we want
to move along after that. We shall be
at considerable expense next season
for Improvements, and by the time of
the fall meeting think our track will
