As usual tho chlef tralners havo the best bables. By common consont, this year ls going to bo a banner ono wlth the stablo of Harry Payne Whltney, so far as two-year-old racing ls con cernod. In years gono by, hls Mcd dler youngsters stood as tho AVhitney roliance, but another Rlchmond is now in the lold. . Thla ls Sandringham. This importod slro lias sont about as flne a lot of colts and flllles to tho races thls spring as over wont to the caro of Tralnbr John Rodgers. "Prizes" Will Be Reserved. The culls of tho lot will bo racod lato in the current meeting and at Jamaica. but the prize juveniles of the "Eton bluo" wlll tio reserved for tlio opening at Belmont Park, whero tho $15,000 Juvcnllo Stakos and tbe $25,000 National Stalllon Stakos aro suro to bring out tho flavor of the cs tabllshment.

The namo of this Sandringham mlss is Forgo, dam the old-timo steoplecliaso mare, Forgot. A bay fllly, by Ilam burg-Morningside, is also talked about. This fllly is one of tho leggy upstand Ing sort which wlll not como to hand until tho warm weoks of Juno or July. Bonnle Star, a chestnut fllly, by Star Shoot-Bonnio Bluo II., is olso the ttp of tho padock. It appears that Rodg? ers has a great band of flllles, but ls lnmentably weak wlth tho cold dl? vislon. Bar None Looks Good. The bost colt, so far as recont works indlcate, ls a follow by Nasturtlum Equallty. He is called Bar None. Ho workod a very fast quarter for Rodg ors last Sunday, and the stable hand3 are saving up to havo a flyer on hlm ln his flrst start. Yankeo has not a singlo excoptlonally propossessing son or daughter in tho lot. However, It ls a wlso tralnor who wltbholds a pre dlctlon concornlng thls or that two yoar-old until they get to tlio races, foor many a scrawny ono on Iho gallop gi-ounds amounts to a star when tho silks aro up.

Noth? lng but 111-luck attonded tho stablo ln 1000. Flrst tho groat mare, Artful.was thrown out of training for the Suhur? ban Handicap and retlred to Brookdala farm. Thon camo tho break-down of Burgomastor, probably the best of tho three-ycar-olds and cortainly the mas? ter of Accountant. Thls camo rlght aftor the son of Hamburg had won tho Belmont Stakes.

Koone's Pojio Joan und othor good ones. Tho fact that Harry Payno Whltney ostlmatod tho loss at carry? ing his stablo in 1000 at $50,000 glvos ono an idea of just what sort of money 'la ontaiied in kooping up a first-ehis-a racing stablo on tho Motropolltan turf.
