THOROUGHBRED RACING.

The thoroughbred racing season of 1910 came to an untimely end with the close of the Saratoga meeting in August and the running of the Futurity transferred to that track from Sheepshead Bay. This condition was brought about by the passage of a law at Albany, which went into effect on September 1, making owners and directors of the various racing associations criminally liable for any betting or bookmaking on their premises. It was claimed by the associations that the new measure was ambiguous, and racing was suspended until such time as the courts could interpret the law. Racing is to be revived this year if present plans are carried out.

S. C. Hildreth, who owned and campaigned such good horses as Fitz Herbert, Dalmatian, Novelty and King James among others, headed the list of winning owners for the season with $144,025 to his credit, R. T. Wilson was second with $65,795, while James R. Keene, vice-chairman of the Jockey Club, who headed the list for the three preceding years, was third with $54,215.

Novelty was ranked as the leading two-year-old of the season. He earned $72,930 in stakes and purses by winning such rich fixtures, among others, as the Futurity, the Hopeful Stakes and the Saratoga Special. Dalmatian was the champion ity, the Hopeful Stakes and the Saratoga Special. Dalmatian was the champion three-year-old. Bought as a yearling for $600 he was sold to Louis Winans for shipment abroad in August, the price being $50,000, according to report. Fitz Herbert did not race after winning the Brooklyn Handicap, due to an illness from which he was thoroughly recovered in August.

Two new American records, which amount to world's records, were established. Everett, a three-year-old, with 107 pounds up, ran two miles in winning the Bowie Stakes at Pimlico on October 31, in 3:25%, supplanting the old mark of 3:25%, made by Fitz Herbert in winning the same fixture the previous year. Bubbling Water, with 121 pounds up, made new figures of 1:42% for one mile and 70 yards at the Oakland track in California on November 30. The old mark was 1:42%, made by Ida May at Latomia in 1909.
