ON A FIRM FOOTING
Cross Country Game Re-established
on Eastern. Tracks.
Certain That There Will Be Keen
Competition and Large Fields in
1920 at Belmont, Aqueduct
and Other Courses.
One of the most pleasing features
of the 11)10 racing season Is the re
newed Interest in steeplechaslng, the
most picturesque brunch of the sport.
Though It took some time to re
establish It, tho croxs-countrj game Is
now on u firm footing again, unit It
promises to be Immensely and de
servedly popular next reason.
It was a regrettable feature of the
racing on the metropolitan tracks that
the steeplechase events were far be
low the average of other years both In
the number mid finality of the horses.
Tills was unavoidable, as many of the
owners of Junipers were In the serv
ice during the war and gave up racing
for tlii" time. The result was thnt
when they returned It was necessary
to establish the sport anew.
How well this lias been accom
plished was shown leeently In Mary
land when some of the new fencers
were brought out. These were horses
developed for cross-country running
since last spring, and consequently
not yet nt their best, but they showed
enough to make It certain that there
will be much better competition nnd
larger fields In 1020 nt Belmont park,
Aqueduct and Saratoga.
More than -10 horses were trained
for the Jumps last year. A number
of these have not yet hud a public
trial, though they have schooled well.
But among those which havo been
tried nro Mrs. Payne Whitney's Itol
Crag, one of the very cleverest of tho
new crop. Esquimau, from die stable
of Captain Hay Parr; War Paint and
Twlford. owned by W. T. Wilkinson,
and Hoitdltil, from tho string of Jump
ers owned by J. E. Wldener.
Most of these named are three-year-olds
which hail shown speed over the
lint hut had the natural qualifications
for Jumping. As n rule, horses aro
liot ttlrncil over to the steeplechase
game until they have served their use
fulness on the Hat, and tlmt accounts
for the aged fencers anil the lack of
class In niiiiiy of the contests. There
should be better racing with younger

Brooklyn fans were mighty sore last spring when Larry Kopf refused to
report to them and Insisted on remaining with Cincinnati. Many thought
Larry was foolish. The Dodgers had a fairly strong team and It looked as
though a classy shortstop would put them In tho pennant light. But Larry
must have hod the hunch that the Beds were due to cop.
Larry's real name Is William Lawrence Kopf. Probably his folks, back
In Bristol, Conn., where lie was born In 1603, called hltu Willie.
Kopf broke Into baseball with tho Foidhom college team. Cleveland
grabbed htm off In 1012 and fa 'inert him out to Toledo. Later he wan turned
over to the Athletics, plnylng second huso for them In 1014 nnd 1015. Balti
more obtained his services the next year. Tho Bed scouts reported lilm
nenrly ripe to star In 1017 and Garry gobbled him up. In 1018 he played
