London, England, Dec. 13, 1901. 
Xdiior Thoroughbred Record: 

AmoDK the many broodmares that \rere dieposed ol at 
the December ealcB was Arcadia, a fourteen-year-old 
daughter of Isonomy, out of Distant Shore by Hermit, 
out of Land's End by Trumpeter, who was purchased by 
Mr. John Gubbins for $10,5C0. Her dam Distant Shore, 
IS also the dam of Virginia Shore, whose daughter. Lady 
Minting, fetched $15,750 later in the week. Arcadia is 
in foal to Kendal and as she foaled the Ascot Cup win- 
ner Cyllene, to Kendal's three parts brother. Bona Vista, 
it is evident that her purchaser has fair grounds for 
hemg hopeful of the result of her latest alliance. Look- 
ing at her stud record, however, 1 should feel inclined to 
consider her sold at full value, tor with the exception of 
Cyllene, she has as yet thrown nothing of any account, 
«nd the own brother to that celebrity— now 3 years old, 
is as slow as a tortoise, while her four-year-old, a colt 
claiming paternity from Donovan, is now engaged in 
hurdle racing, with indifferent success. This year she 
had a foal by Orme, and possibly this cross was as good 
as any for her, for Orme's Galopin blood would blend 
right well with her strain of Hermit, and in addition 
Orme brings in much the same other lines as Bona Vista 
and Kendal. Mr. Gubbiud has presumably bought her 
to breed to his promising young stallion Blairfinde— 
whose sons Revenue and Port Blair, have done him much 
credit this season— and there is no doubt that the 
cross will be eminently suitable. Blairfinde being an 
own brother to Galtee Moore, he is, of course, by Kendal, 
and therefore on that ground alone likely to succeed 
when mated with Arcadia. But even more than this 
must have been the inducement to buy her, and when 
we bear in mind that she is by Isonomy, out of Distant 
Shore by Hermit, we get at what I consider to be the 
key to the purchase, for Blairfinde's two sons just men- 
tioned, are both out of Income, who is also by Isonomy, 
out ot another daughter of Hermit, namely In 
Bounds— who, it may be interesting to note, in 
passing, is an own sister to Mon Droit (dam 
of Dieudonne, recently imported to the States.) 
The success of Revenue is doubtless in part due to the 
fact that Blairfinde, as will be seen from the attached 
pedigree, was getting with Income, a return ot what may 
be taken to be the best blood in his dam, i. e., that ot St. 
Albans, who was an own brother to Income's grandam,

Arcadia, eli in, 14, by Isoiioiny— Distant Sliore. 

Boundary is absent from Arcadia's pedigree, and al- 
though the other three quarters are the same as the three i 
top quarters in that ot Income (i. e. Sterling, Isolla Bella 
and Hermit), Arcadia has Land's End in place of Boundary 
in her bottom quarter and this is not so good, either 
from the point of view of returning a horse the best blood 
in his dam, or from the standpoint of the figure system, 
because Income returned the blood and was herself a 
member of what the season has proved itself, the best 
"running" family, No. 2, whereas Arcadia's Land's End 
strain, misses the one point and makes her moreover a 
member of the outside No 9 family figure, which al 
though at this season came out tenth best in order of 
value— immediately following the five running and four 
sire families — is nevertheless decidedly inferior to In- 
come's figure. It must not be thought, though solely on 
these two counts, that Blairfinde will not hit well with 
Arcadia. I only point out that they miss one factor 
which helped the success of the union of Blairfinde 
with Income. The introduction of Land's End in place 
of Boundary, brings in to play the known liking ot 
Springfield (Blairfinde's maternal grandsiie), for the 
blood ot Land's End. When Springfield himself was 
mated with that mare, two good colts resulted in St. 
Michael and his younger brother. The Lizjrd, and it will 
be exceedingly interesting to see whether Blairfinde on 
Arcadia, will prove as successful a combination as that 
which has already produced Revenue and Port Blair. I 

attach Arcadia's pedigree and also her photograph, taken 

on the day Mr. Gubbins bought her:

In Mr. Allison's book, "The British Thoroughbred," 
he says No. 9 is a very bad sire st -ain, both for getting 
runners and broodmares, but although this is the case, I 
cannot help fancying that the produce of the two No. d

ordinary number of the beat running strains close up, 
No. 1 occurring four times, while 2, 3. 4 and 5 (three 
times), are also present. Sire figures, however, are few 
indeed and pretty far back. 

The 135th annual dinuer of the Gimcrack Club, took 
place to-night at York, and Mr. James Lowther, M. P., 
was the principal speaker. 1 bad intended giving you 
the gist of his and other important speeches, but the 
great gale and snowfall ot yesterday has played havoc 
with the telegraph and telephone wires which keep us 
in tonch with the North and only fragments of the 
speeches have as yet come in (2:00 a. m. Saturday.) One 
of the 80 guests was John Porter, who proposed the 
health of Major Joicey, owner of this season's Gimcrack 
Stakes winner, Sterling Balm. The veteran Kingsclere 
trainer has always been strongly against the early racing 
of two-year olds, hence it was no surprise when 
he made the suggestion that all two-year-old 
races run tor in future between the commence- 
ment of the racing season in March and the 
Ist of June, should be selling races. This he contended, 
would be all in favor of the breed of horses, as under 
Buch a rule there would be no temptation to run a good 
class youngster unduly early. Porter has always practiced 
what he advocates, his good two-year olds almost in- 
variably makiDg their debut at Ascot in June, or else at 
Goodwood at the end of July, and there is sound sense 
in his idea. It is true that we have had a Derby winner 
in Donovan, who came out in the March of his two-year- 
old season and won the Brocklesby Stakes at Lincoln 
Spring, but all horses are not Donovans. Galtee More, 
for instance, a big, massive colt, would have been abso- 
lutely ruined if he had been brought out so early, wherea« 
he was kept in retirement until the autumn and did not 
make his first appearance until he ran in and won the 
Middle Park Plate, making a hack of Velasquez. Prior 
to this the latter bad carried all before bim and it was 
indeed a bitter blow when it was seen that he was an- 
able to live with "Galtee." Many people put down 
Velasquez's defeat to the heavy going, but that he w«a 
beaten on his merits was proved in the "classics" of the 
following year, Galtee More again and again asserting 
his superiority over Lord Rosebery's crack. Galtee More 
was, of course, not trained by Porter, but by Darling— 
another believer in letting juveniles have as much time 
as possible— but if instances need be cited from John 
Porter's own record, that of Common is ready to hand, 
who never ran at all until he came out in the Spring as a 
three year-old and romped home an easy winner of the 
Two Thousand Guineas of 1891, and, like "Galtee," car- 
ried oflf the Derby and Leger as well later in the year. 
Another of Porter's Derby winners, the incomparable 
Ormonde, first made his appearance on a race course at 
the Second October meeting at Newmarket and having 
won a little race there just to "open his eyes" he came 
out in real earnest in the Houghton week at the end of 
the month and carried oflf the "Criterion" and the Dew- 
hurst Plate in quick succession. Keturning to John 
Porter's remarks, he pointed out that it was clearly 
proved by statistics that they had a greater proportion of 
old horses running in France than we on this side of the 
Channel, and this although the majority of French races 
were run over a greater distance than ours. This he 
rightly attributed to the fact that in France two-year-old 
races are not allowed before the 1st ot August. Further, 
Porter thought that horses should not go to the 
stud 60 early as the e^d ot their three-year-old season, 
and here again he struck a note which is in harmony 
with the ideas oi most of those who have the best in- 
terests of the turf at heart. As to the starting gate, 
which has worked admirably since its institution. Porter 
was full of praise, saying that it was the best way of start- 
ing large fields that he had yet seen. 

So far as I can learn, little or no reference was made 
to American jockeys, save that one gentleman, who is 
not an owner of thoroughbreds, is said to have stated 
that what he wanted to see was English jockeys on the 
backs of English horses. doubt,was a thoroughly 
patriotic sentiment, and the speaker warming to his 
work, went on to say that while the American invaders 
had taught our jockeys that the art of race riding did 
not consist merely in riding a brilliant finish, he dis- 
approved of the American jockeys' "methods." This, 
of course, was a wrapped up repetition of all the non- 
sense which has been uttered during the past season 
concerning the alleged pulling of De Lacy. I do not 
wish to re-open old sores, so let me pull up here with 
the remark that De Lacy was beaten on his merits if 
ever a horse was. I don't hold a brief for the American 
jockeys, either as a body or individually, but this patting 

on the back of English jockeys as paragons of honesty, 
and general running down of their American rivals, is a 
bit steep. One would imagine that no English jockey 
had ever pulled a horse or fouled an opponent by de- 
sign, or been warned ofl" for so doing. Mr. Lowther's 
speech was mainly devoted to considerations of the 
Jockey Club's domestic policy. In connection with the 
retirement of Mr. Edward Weatherby, he made it pretty 
plain that the Club would before long take much of the 
management of turf affairs out of the Hands of Messrs. 
Weatherby and in great measure run the whole show 
themselves. Mr. Edward Weatherby has always stuck 
up for Americans as a body and it was mainly owing to 
his good oflRces that one or two ot the American triiner- 
owners received permission to establish themselves at 
crowded Newmarket. The English trainers at head- 
quarters are very numerous and, therefore are not keen 
on "invaders" as a rule, unless they come prepared to 
spend money. This, of course, ic only natural, and ae 
the main idea of some of the invaders is to make their 
horses pay expenses and show a profit, there has, equally 
naturally, been some jealousy, and now that Mr. 
Weatherby has retired, it would not surprise me if fewer 
licenses were given to strangers to train at Newmarket 
next season. I see that "Hidalgo" states in a recent 
issue of The Thoroughbred Record that it is an open 
secret that Mr. Corrigan and Mr. Wishard have been in- 
formed that they need not apply for a renewal of their 
licenses to train at headquarters. If tbis is the case, it 
is quite possible tbat the congested state of affairs there 
is at the bottom of the matter, for the little town m 
Cambridgeshire is notoriously overstocked with horses 
and trainers both. No license from the Jockey Club is 
required to train horses elsewhere, and if I wanted to 
start a training stable, Newmarket is the last place I 
should think of, for a horse can't cough at one end of 
the town but it is known to every soul in the place 
within a few hours. Lord Carnarvon has found this 
out, and not wishing everyone to know as much about 
his animals as he does himself, he has had them removed 
to Whatcombe, in Berkshire, where the gallops are 
better and the touts few and discreet. Why should not 
Messrs. Corrigan and Wishard do likewise? I trust that 
they will, for both have shown themselves to be excellent 
trainers and marvellously good judges of a race-horse. 
I am told that it is true, after all, that Johnny Reiff is 
going to ride next season in France; at all events I am 
am assured that when the report to that effect was con- 
tradicted, the agreement to ride for Prince d'Arenberg 
and others, was actually already signed. My informant 
is a man who should know. By a slip of the pen, in a 
recent letter, I alluded to the winner of the Criterion 
Stakes at Newmarket, as the filly by Henry of Navarre- 
Abeyance. This should of course have been by Ayrshire 

There is little or nothing ot any importance to write 
about in connection with steeplechasing. The open ditch 
at the Manchester meeting has brought about the death 
of two more horses, Mathiole and Red Reel, the one a 
tried old fencer and the other a promising four-year-old. 
Provided that the King's horse. Ambush II. steers clear 
of mishaps at the "ditch"until the end of next March, 
he will about win the "Grand National" for the second 
time. I have nothing to add to what I wrote last week 
concerning the Epsom Derby, save that the Duke of 
Westminster is going on well at his new quarters at 
Kingsclere. Stay though, I must put on record that Sam 
Darling will no longer train for the Messrs. J. R. & Fox- 
hall Keene next season, finding himself unequal to the 
strain of superintending so many horses. So the Keene 
horses are going to be trained by Felix Leach (one of 
the late Mathew Dawson's best pupils) at Newmarket, 
where Leach has hitherto had charge of a selact string 
of horses belonging to another wealthy owner, Mr. H. 
J. King, for whom he won the double of Northampton- 
ohira Rfok«- and Great Metropolitan last April with

The readers of this paper will be pleased to learn that 
there is at least one dreaded disease that science has 
been able to cure in all its stages, and that is Catarrh. 
Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only positive cure now known 
to the medical fraternity. Catarrh being a constitutional 
disease, requires a constitutional treatment. Hall's 
Catarrh Cure is taken internally, acting directly upon 
the blood and mucous surfaces of the system, thereby 
destroying the foundation of the disease, and giving the 
patient strength by building up the constitution and 
assisting nature in doing its work. The proprietors have 
so much taith in its curative powers, that they offer One 
Hundred Dollars for any case that it fails to cure. Send 
for list of Testimonials.

Gravesend, L. I., Dec. 24, 1901. 
SkiUor TTiorotiohbred Record: 

Those who have an intimate acquaintance with Eaton- 
town will hardly accuse it of being a Metropolis. As a^ 
matter of fact Eatontown is today further removed from 
being a rising town even than it was in 1893 — 
the year oi the hayseed's triumph, the year in which 
the inhabiters of Jersey thought that racing was too 
good to live, so buried it nonetheless— though Eaton« 
town is not a metropolis, some of its doings in the racing 
line are strictly up-to-date and so form fitting subjects 
for Metropolitan Gossip. The Haggin string, consisting 
of 140 horses, is quartered there, on the new track, near 
to the Eatontown end of it. Clarence H. Mackay's 
string too is housed there for the winter, and the home 
stables of Eatontown have, as usua^, their complement 
of horses. The task of looking after a number such a» 
Mr. Haggin has in training it is needless to say would be 
too much for one man to accomplish, and Littlefield i» 
assisted in his work by his father, Charles Littlefield, 
and also by his brother, Barry. It is a large establish- 
ment, consisting of eight stables, and adjoining these are 
ten paddocks of about an acre in extent, also a twenty 
acre paddock in which some twenty of the yearlings are 
permitted to run out in a bunch. Littlefield is a believer 
in the gelding allowance, and for that reason has had 
twenty-eight of his colts added to the list, which makes 
them so much the more easy to handle. With so many 
horses to be cared for a large number of help is neceo- 
sary. There are no less than five cooks to attend to the 
needs ot these latter, and a butcher's shop, a grocery 
store and all such accessories form part and parcel of the 
colony. The oats are furnished by car loads from 
Chicago, but the hay and straw are purchased from the 
farmers of Monmouth county, who find Littlefield their 
best customer, without shipping their produce to a more 
distant market. 

Watercolor is, of course, the king-pin of the stable, 
and trots around in the lead of the first string, seemingly 
conscious of his superiority. The stable help call him 
by their favorite nickname of "The Jersey Express," 
and their belief in the handsome black is unbounded. 
He is looking in excellent shape, big and lusty, not- 
withstanding the fact that he campaigned throughout 
the season, and took part in races both the first and last 
days of the Morris Park meetings. There are not so 
many of the older horses left in the string, but of these 
the horses well-known to racegoers Bon Mot, Busy 
Ladyl Ranald, Champagne, Sparklet and Stranger all 
look as if ready to commence proceedings again with a 
few good works into them to get rid of the extra flesh 
they have put on. There are sixty-three at present 
taking regular exercise, and the number will be in- 
creased on the first of next month, when more of those 
which are at present enjoying their romps in the pad- 
docks will have to join the regular exercise division. 

The yearlings taken throughout are a big growthy lot, 
and may be pronounced very promising. Needless for 
me to say that they will not all prove racehorses; but a 
very good percentage may be prophesied of favorably. 
When colts are roughing it in the paddocks, as these 
are, with hair on them an inch and a half long, it is a 
different matter pronouncing judgment, to what it will 
be when they come to the post. One for instance will 
round out and furnish in his training, while another — 
equally good looking in present condition— may shrink 
away, when he has to face the hard work of his life, and 
deteriorate in appearance. It is early in the game to 
make selections, but at that there is little danger of 
bringing one's judgment into disrepute, since any 
encomiums now passed upon them will have been con- 
signed to oblivion, long before the time when the first 
bugle call is sounded. Some few which especially caught 
my fancy shall be named, and it is to be hoped that they 
may fulfil expectations. There is a big, good looking 
colt, by name Teddy Mack, which has a lot of size and 
substance, and is a half brother to High Order, by Can- 
dlemas— Tongese. A chestnut filly by St. Gatien— Fleu- 
rette, the sister to Firenzi, is full of quality and has every 
appearance of making a race mare. She too is already 
named Amaryllis, and we may expect to see her fighting 
it out for some of the many big stakes in which she is 
engaged. A still nicer filly even is a chestnut, by name 
Rose water. She is sired by Watercress, dam Rosette, 
and has every right, judging from appearance, to be a 
filly of the highest class. Littlefield has not done much 
with her, for the reason that he has not had her long. 
She came with the batch of Haggin horses recently 
turned over to him by Wimmer, and Wimmer no doubt 
could give a good account of what she has shown him at 

The Thoroughbred Record 


Sheepshead Bay. She is a half sister to Cockade 
Midian, &c., so has every license to be as smart a per- 
former as her looks would infer. A chestnut colt, which 
is not ultra fashionably bred, being by Filz James— Bril- 
lar, IS a decidedly good looking youngster. He is built 
on nice lines, with plenty of length, and has plenty of 
substance, which makes him look ojore than useful. A 
chestnut colt by Prestonpans— Cheetah is a nice appear- 
ing colt in every respect, and he should prove a feather 
in the cap of Prestonpans. A che^itnut filly by Golden 
Dawn— Cachuca is an extra stout, big framed one, and 
if looks go for anything she will prove the worth of 
Golden Dawn's breeding, which is exceptionally good 
He is by Bend Or— Early Morn, she by Roslcrucian. A 
brown filly by Watercress— Touche Pas and a big, chest 
nut gelding by Golden Garter— Stella are certainly above 
the average, and this latter is naturally a favorite with 
the trainer, since Stella herself was an extra good race 
mare in his string, and has likewise furnished him with 
the good winners Sabilla and Bonaparte. These are only 
some few of many choice looking and choicely bred 
ones, but they are a fair sample of the whole. What 
their work has been, how good, how bad, or bow indif- 
ferent, is not for me to say. A trainer does his full 
share when he gives you an opportunity to look over hie 
colts closely, without going into the question of which 
are the best performers. 

There are some very useful colts in the various strings 
at Eatontown, but they will have to take their turn in 
anothei letter, when the reader is fresh and not wearied 
to death by hearing an outside opinion of what he can- 
not see himself. Before leaving the Monmouth Park 
track it might be as well to add a note or two about the 
string of Clarence H. Mackay, which is wintering under 
Charley Hill's care in the stables adjoining those of Lit 
tlefield. Banastar and his stable mates are all roughing; 
it in the paddocks, and only one or two such as Heno. 
which get to feeling their oats and rest too much, are exer- 
cised under saddle. Banastar is lusty and well. Indeed, 
he might be mistaken for a dray horse, were it not for 
his beautiful bloodlike head and neck, which would 
destroy the illusion. His trainer stopped him after the 
Brooklyn summer meeting, and blistered him in front 
twice over, bo that his legs still show the effects. He 
thinks he will train the coming season but before putting 
him to work purposes putting him to a few mares. 
Three of the Mackay weanlings by Hamburg, Plaudit and 
Mirthful are now quartered at the Silverbrook Stud 
Farm of Lucien Appleby, which is just across the water 
from Hill's present stable. Heno is doing capitally, and 
has been pin fired for the osselet on his off foreleg, which 
was very pronounced and at one time threatehed to give 
trouble. The high-priced Frankfort, 3— the brother to 
Hamburg- went wrong in his knees this season, and 
firing had to be resorted to. Hill says that he has all 
the speed which the Bitter Root people claimed for him 
at the Marcus Daly sale. He has frequently shown him 
a half in 47 seconds and five furlongs in a minute flat. 
It is to be hoped, therefore, that he may still do some 
good for Mr. Mackay, and get back some of the purchase 
money. Brunswick is a 2 year-old which Mackay 
bought from S. C. Hildreth at the time when he went to 
Chicago to see His Eminence run for the American 
Derby. He was a good winner in California, but has 
been amies since coming East. Prince of Melrose, 4, by 
Farandole— Orchid, was purchased from G. H. Whitney 
on the strength of some very fast work which he showed 
He, too, went wrong, but is now all right again and 
should be heard from next season. The Kentucky 
Derby winner, His Eminence, was run down when he 
came into Hill's hands, and had the misfortune to be 
cut down at Saratoga just as he was rounding into shape. 
He has improved more than most, and will still 
retrieve the reputation which he gained in the VVe«t 
bat forfeited in the East. Dartman and Choate are two 
useful looking colts, bought at the Marcus Daly sale, and 
they,should be in evidence next seatiou, being grsndl) 
bred and likely looking. The unknown quantity of the 
stable is the two-year-old Roslyn, a bay colt by Isinglass 
— Lucy Cross, by St. Simon, imported along with the 
brood mares of Marcus Daly from England. He was un- 
broken at the time of sale, and Hill has hardly had time 
to discover whether he is worth the big price paid for 
him. He is certainly a grand individual, as all said who 
saw him at the sale, and has shown speed sufficient to 
warrant Hill in believing that he is a race horse. Klon- 
dyke, the old jumper, belonging to George F. Hill, is 
wintering with the horses trained by his brother and is 
in excellent shape. 

Enoch Wiahard is back from England, bringing with 
biffi twenty seven horses, thirteen of which are his own, 

and among them the stallion Widower, consigned 
to Milton Young, of McGrathiana Stud. W. C. Whit- 
ney's Elkhorn and thirteen horses consigned to Gene 
Leigh were also on board the Minnehaha. Wishard has 
been training in England for Richard Croker, but on an- 
nouncing his retirement sent the horses to Croker's 
home at Wantage. He does not know who will train 
them in the future. Wishard's other horses along with 
him belong to John Drake, of Chicago, and one of them 
is Alvescot, for which he recently paid $5,000. He will 
train and race these next season at Chicago. From there 
he will journey to Saratoga, winding up the season on 
the Eastern tracks. Just now he will stay for a few days 
at the HoflFman House, and then continue his journey to 
Chicago. Among the horses consigned to Gene Leigh 
are Sempronius and King of Coins, stallions; the latter 
is a son of Lady Minting, for which James R, Keene re- 
cently paid $15,750 at auction. The Germans were 
anxious to obtain her, but Mr. Keene outstayed them in 
the bidding. She is by Minting, dam Virginia Shore by 
John Davis. A subscription has been taken for her to 
Florizal II., belonging to King Edward, so she will prob- 
ably join the mares recently sent over to the Royal 

Cbarlie Ballard is another recent arrival from England, 
where he has spent the last eighteen months riding and 
training. Ballard is growing fast and taking on flesh, so 
that he will no longer be able to ride even at the big 
weights in England. He has had his full share of suc- 
cess, and intends returning in two months' time to 
train the horses of J. de Leon, by whom he is engaged. 
He has a higher opinion of English racing and race- 
horses than those of his own country. In fact he has 
become ultra English in his tastes during his short so- 
journ, "yer know," and is anxious to get back. 

Jockey Archie Mclntyre is home from France, where 
he has had a capital season, and has a high Citizen en- 
gagement, wjen he will ride for Prince Marat and M. 
Abbelle Lieux.

They were stepping lively at both New Orleans and 
San Francisco last Saturday. At Oakland Headwater 
ran three quarters of a mile in 1:12}, taking a quarter of 
a second off the track record for that distance. Colonel 
Ballantyne, with 118 pounds up, ran a mile and a six- 
teenth in 1:44|, taking a half second ofl the record. 
'Lucky" Baldwin's Crusados annexed the Junior Stake 
and equaled the track record of 1:26 for seven furlongs 
At New Orleans Little Elkin did the mile and a half in 
?:35, which lowered the track record a second and a half, 
and St. Cuthbert equaled the track record of 1:13 for six 

Dr H. E. Rowell has two fillies at Oakland who will 
become members of the two-year-old brigade on January

being booked by the California railbirds as good things. 
One IS by Magnet, out of I Daclare by imp. Invernesr, 
and the other by Figaro, out of Flossy by Flood. 

The first week of the Charleston meeting has not been 
a glowing success. The same horses run nearly every 
day, and unless there is a goodly number ot equine 
recruits and better attendance it is a safe prediction that 
the end to the venture will come when the $37,000 de- 
posited by "Tobe" Wall is exhausted. 


New Orleans, Dec. 25.— George Arnold won the 
Chrigtmas Handicap at the Fair Grounds this afternoon, 
but to do so he was forced to run one of the greatest 
races that has been witnessed in the West or South this 
year. With 123 pounds in the saddle the big son of 
Sir Dixon made the circuit of the track, according to of- 
ficial timers, in 1:39 flat, thus knocking oflf three-quar- 
ters ot a secood from the previous track record for a mile, 
made by Varro, a three-year-old last season. George 
Arnold ran to his very best mark today and reached the 
limit of his speed. Under Winkfield's powerful riding 
he was doing his best from start to finish. It looked 
like bad policy to go out and force the pace with a horse 
weighted as was George Arnold, but Winkfield knew 
that it would not do to let Mint Sauce get tar away, and 
the crowd was, thereiore, treated to a rather unusual 
spectacle of the top weights setting a terrific pace from 
the start. Mint Sauce had his usual great speed, and at 
the end of the first half mile in 48 seconds he was lead- 
ing Fuller's gelding by two lengths. Turning out of the 
back stretch, though, the latter rapidly closed on the 
imported horse, and at the head of the stretch they were 
on practically equal terms. From there home they 
raced like a team. Mint Sauce showing a neck in front 
to within a few jumps from the finish, when Winkfield 
gave Arnold a particularly vicious cut with his whip, 
and the big Sir Dixon horse shot his head in front in the 
very last stride. 

When the time — 1:39 — was hung out a shout went up 
that could have been heard half mile away. Even if the 
race was not run in better than 1:39|, as some trainers 
caught it, George Arnold's performance, all things con- 
sidered, was phenomenal, and stamps him a sure enough 
race horse. This waa not the only noteworthy perform- 
ance. The racing today was the most brilliant ever wit- 
nessed here, two other track records being broken. For 
a starter Nellie Waddell, who was doingher best, clipped 
half a second oflf Sir Florian's mark for five furlongs. In 
the mile and twenty yard handicap Nitrnte, the heavily 
backed favorite, nipped Piederich in the last jump and 
knocked a second and a half-ofli Leo Lake's local record. 
Piederich was best, but Coburn outfioished Cochrai 
Amigari, who, at one time, was 30 to 1, and was sent to 
the post at 7, won the six-furlong handicap for 2-year- 
olds. The crowd in attendance was an immense one, 
and 21 books had a heavy play. JocKey Carl Mitchell, 
who rode in Germany the past season, arrived here to- 


San Francisco, Cal., Dec. 21.— Ed Corrigan's recent 
importation, Dunlop, dropped dead today at the former's 
ranch near Sacramento. Dunlop was a bay horse, loaled 
in 1895, bred by His Majesty He was sired by Ayr- 
shire, out of Fortune by Scottish Chief, she out of 
Chana, by Thunderbolt. As a 2-year-old Dunlop won 
his first and only essey.jThe Prendergast Stakes, at New- 
market, value £972, from a field of eight;at 3 years old he 
did not win, but ran third to Jeddah and Batt in the 
Derby,and was third in the Select Stakes; at 4 years old he 
won two races out of nine starts; at 5 years old he won 
but one race. Dunlop was a very good looking horse 
and would have, no doubt, been a success for Mr. Corri- 
gan, whose misfortune in his loss is a matter of universal 
regret among turfmen.

In our issue of December 21 the statement was made 
that Clarence H. Mackay had purchased froTi John E 
Madden twenty-eight broodmares. The foundation for 
this statement was the fact that the Racing Calendar, 
the cfScial organ of the Jockey Club, in publishing the 
entries to the Hopeful Stakes to be run for at Saratoga, 
in 1904, had these mares entered in Clarence H. Mac 
kay's name. Knowing that entries of mares for this 
stake must be made by the owner we announced the 
fact that thcBe maree bad changed hands. 

The following appears in the Racing Calendar, Dec. 26, 


Throngh an error in the printing department of the 
Racing Calendar, Dec. 19, the entries lor the Hopeful 
Stakes of 190t below that of Plaudit— Falhde, which 
should have been credited to Mr. J. E. Madden, were 
credited to Mr. C. H. Mackay. 

While willing to lake cur share ot blame for this re- 
port, still such mistakes on the part of the Racing Calen- 
dar are absolutely inexcusable. As the official organ of 
the Jockey Club, it should be extremely careful in such 
matters, as these mistakes are frequently annoying to 
parties not concerned. 

Again the fact that this report was credited to The 
Record merely goes to ehow what asplendid news medium 
The Record is, and moreover ninety per cent of the "As 
sociated Press" and "Special" horse news that is sent out 
from Lexington has its birth in the columns of this pub 
lication. In the present instance the local news crib 
hers and pilferers did not follow their copy, but 
inserted the fictitious price of |3,000 a mare. No doubt 
this mistake has been quite annoying to Mr. Mackay, 
and we apologize for our share of the annoyance. In 
the future let our esteemed cotemporary, the Racing 
Calendar, be more careful, for, with the facilities at its 
command, the truth, the whole truth and nothing but 
the truth should appear in its columns. 

elation will not receive strong support. There 
will probably be an absence at the Spring gather- 
ing at both Brooklyn and Sheepehead of some of the 
best Western stables, but there can hardly be a doubt 
that the best of the Handicap horses now wintering in 
Kentucky and Tennessee will be sent on to do battle for 
"The Brooklyn" and "The Suburban," »nd l.t^r for 
"The Brighton." The two first named are head- 
liners of the spring gatherings of turfmen in the 
East, and Western horsemen will do well to bear in 
mind that entries to both close on Thursday, 
January 2, and to "The Brighton" on December 31. 
Quite a number of other valuable stakes are also an- 
nounced in our business columns by these ster- 
hng organizjtions, to all of which we direct the atten- 
tion of our readers. Since the Jockey Cub has taken 
control of Eastern turf interests, the eport has thrived in 
and around the metropolis of the Union in a manner 
hardly dreamt ot when the Jockey Club was or^janized 
in 1894. To say that the success achieved since that 
date has been phenomenal in tvery direction is not 
stating the case too broadly by any means. It is amply 
demonstrated by the returns of the racing associations 
this year to the Comptroller of the State of New York, 
the 5 per cent tax exacted by the State exceeding the 
sum of $130,000, which is distributed among the difltrent 
agricultural societies of the State. The tax is, without 
doubt, a very onerous one, but it has had a beneficial 
and far-reaching effect among the fanners of the State. 
And the farmers of the State are not the only ones who 
benefit by the provisions of the racing law. The breed- 
ers all over the country are also gainers thereby. The 
overnight purses, as well as the fixed events, have been 
increased in value. It is not too much to predict at this 
early date that the yearlings to ba disposed of in 1902 will 
fetch greater prices than in any previous year. New 
blood is finding its way to turf sports from year to year, 
and this in itself will enhance the demand for well-bred 
young horses. T ie breeder, therefore, that supports the 
valuable Eastern stakes will, at the same time, be adding 
materially to his own bank account. Read the conditions 
of all the stakes to be founi in our advertising psgee. 
Blanks for all of them can be bed at The Record oflS je 

out of Sisterly, by War Dance, out of Sister 
ot Charity, by imp. Knight of St. George. In the 
stud La Sorella threw, among other winners, the useful 
horses Sumo, Sumatra and Capron. She was heavy with 
foal to Faraday.

T, P. Hayes, the Lexington owner, who led the 
Horsemen's Protective Association in its fight last Spring 
against the Western Jockey Club, has decided to apply 
for a license from the Western Jockey Club. During 
the war which waged the past season between the Turf 
Congress and the Western Jockey Club, Hayes was one 
ot tne owners who took side? with the Turf Congresa. 


So far as the Western turf is concerned at the present 
time, the --eal corner stone of racing is the Washington 
Park Club, of Chicago, an organizition that because of 
its social prestige dominates the racing interests in the 
West, and places the sport of kings upon the true level 
to which it belongs— this fact being recognized, by all of 
the other associations that contribute to the make up of 
the Western Jockey Club. In another column of this 
issue will be found a list of stakes oflTered by this or- 
ganization for the summer meeting of 1902, entries to 
which will close on January 15, 1902. Among the 
many liberal events listed are the American Derby with 
$20,000 added, and it is sate even now to assert that it 
will bring to the post one of the largest and best fields 
that has ever faced the starter in this great Wes.ern 
classic and that it will draw out the largest cro^d ever 
assembled in Aruerica, either East or West, There are 
tour other stakes tor 3-year olds, including the Sheridan, 
$4,000 added, Englewood, $2,000 added tor fUlies, and 
Drexel $2,000 added. There at-e seven stakes for 2 year 
olds, including the Hyde Park. $5,000 added, and six 
stakes for Syearolds and upwards, including the 
Wheeler Handicap, with $7,500 added. In all of these 
events the entrau'je fee mu^t accompany nominations. 
Turfmen to receive entry blanks can obtain them 
by application to the Secretary J^mes Ho^rard, Gist, 
street and South Park Avenue, Chicago, or at the ofii e 
of The Thoroughbrkd Record 


The promise for high-class racing in the East through- 
out the forthcoming season, now again almost at hand, 
was never better than at present. All the chief racing 
organizations, and, indeed, some of those rated lower in 
the scale, have added considerably to the value of stakes 
given in previous years. The valuable events which 
were recently closed by the reorganized Saratoga Asso- 
ciation have received the strongest kind of support from 
both Eastern and Western owners, and there is no reason 
to suppose that those events now announced in The 

Record by the Coney Island Jockey Club, the Brooklyn j few days ago from pneumonia.

mously placed in that order among the fillies, but 
opinion is divided between Nasturtium, Yankee, Gold- 
smith and a couple of others, Abe Frank having cham- 
pions, for honors among the colts. One colt which has 
been consistently overlooked, and yet which has claio s 
of undoubted strength, is one that did most of his racing 
over the St. Louis tracks last summer. Tom Hayes' colt 
Runnels, by Charade— Z ngara II. Runnels hooked up 
with Endurance by Right only once. This was at 
Louisville on on a very heavy track, when he carried 
113 pounds against 110 on the filly, equal weufhts under 
the scale. He beat her like breaking sticks. She after- 
ward showed she could run in the mud, and Runnels 
performed if anything better on a fast track than in 
hHavy going. The colt was ailing a bit after this, and 
while unfit started against Abe Frank, Memnon and 
others in the Hyde Paik Stakes at Washington Park,and 
was beaten off. After that he came to St. Louis, and, 
gradually rounding to, beat better horses each time h* 
started, finally giving weight to such a good horse 
Peaceful, and beating him in a common gallop, a mil.' v 
and a sixteenth, in 1.47. In this race he showed all th 
marks of a colt of exceptionally high class, he looks 
stake horse all over, and a lot of good judges will be sur 
prised it he don't develop into one of the very best 3- 
vear-olda in the country, not barring the stars of the 
metropolitan circuit.

New York, Dec. 26 — At Yonkers the Empire City 
Race Track was sold to day by Bankson T. Morgan, lel 
eree, for $218,000 to Frank Farrell. 

Farrell began the bidding at |21I 000. Although there 
was a big crowd present, only one other man, whose 
name was not obtained, bid against Farrell. 

There is a mortgage on the property of |150,000, held 
by the Washington Life Insurance Oompioy, and a sec- 
ond mortgage of $45,000, held by a private party, Much 
surprise was expressed at the low price at which the 
track was sold. Farrell is supposed to represent a party 
of well known po;iticians. 

Among thoee who are said to be interested in the deal 
with Mr. Farrell is William S. Devery, Ddputy Commis 
Bioner of Police. 

It is the intention of the new owners to make applica- 
tion for racing dates for the Eoapire City track, and 
veiltd threats of outlaw racing and other methods of re- 
taliation are made should the Jockey Club refuse. 


Memphis, Tenn., Dec. 25 — Horses and people are 
preparing to spend a quiet week at Montgomery Park, 
the local horse haven, »^here for the past two montht' 
the Schorrs, Sam Hildreth, Charley Ellison, Tichenor & 
Co., Hiram Pierce, G. C. Bennett and many others havc 
been engaged in breaking their yearling purchases. 

A mantle of snow and ice envelops the track, barns, 
cottages and paddocks, and Christmas week will witnesb 
trainers and owners hugging the fireside. The oldei 
horses have been given their farewell exercise for tue 
year; the yearlings have been given their last tryouts, 
and already the mails are carrying nominations to the 
racing associations in the East and West for events oi 
the next turf campaign. 

Yearling disappointments have been frequent, but in 
some ot the stables are youngsters in whicn lie future 
hope lor purses and stakes. The Schorrs have returned 
with twenty-three head which will celebrate their 2 
year-old biriLday Jan. 1. Possibly the most distiu 
guished member of the Schorr establishment is a halt 
brother to Endurance by Rignt, by imp. Pirate of Pen- 
zance. This colt, as well as several oy Lieber Karl, 
have shown good flights of speed in their preliminary 
trials. The Lieber Karls are the result of Schorr's firbt 
eflort at breeding. Young Russtlls, St. Georges, Eshere 
and Top Gallants complete the list that will carry the 
orange and black in 1902 

The str^j^* stable ol G. C. Bennett contains eighteen 
coming 2 j^-r olds and the crack Abe Frank, as well as 
Ed Austin, Aladdin and othtr good coming 3 year-olds 
The Bennett establishment seems especially strong witti 
Derby material for the next season. 

In conversation witb Henry McDaniel, the trainer 
of the stable, Mr. Bennett expressed a desire to tqual 
the record ot the Cushing stable, made in 1893, wnen 
Cushing's horses captured the Tennessee Derby witn 
Calhoun, the Kentucky Derby with Lookout anJ the 
World's Fair Derby with Boundless. In the younger 
division ot the Bennett &ta^)le is a half brother to the 
deceased Miss Benntt!; also, several head which are the 
product of the Bennett breeding establishment in thib 
county. They are mostly the get of Kinj^'s Counsel 
the premier stallion at the Bennett farm. 

Hiram Pierce, the young Kentuckian, who has been 
very successiul at the local track in breaking Hamburg, 
Ornament, May Hempstead, Suisun and others, haa 
charge of a small but telect stable of yearlings. 

Tichenor & Co. possess a Dr. Rice— Constance IV. 
colt, which looks to be built on the right racing linea. 
Sam Hildreth has broken a few youngsters that give 
promise of developing into racers ot tbe right kind. 
Hilduti has made maay improve e i s around his sta 
ble, which is known as the "glass house horse headquar- 
ters," owing to the manner in which he has titttd up the 
barn The stable proper is surrounded with glass panels 
exit nding from several feet above ground to the roof, 
thereby affording plenty of light and at the saa e time 
protecting the tnoroughbreds against the wintry blasts 
which prevail at present. 

In the Ellison barn is the most expensive purchase at 
the track. The colt is by Sir Dixon, and great things are 
expected of him trom the manner in which he went 
about his preliminary work. Ellison has expended 
$25,000 in the purchase of yearlings, and in appearance 
they class above anything at the tra( k.

New Ordeans, Dec. 23.— When bets were declared off 
on a race here a few days ago considerable surprise was 
expressed by those who were acquainted with the rules 
ot the Western Jockey Club, ot which organization the 
Crescent City Jockey Club is a prominent and influen- 
tial member. Section 32 of the declaration of the prin- 
ciples of the Western turf governing body reads: "The 
Western Jockey Club takes no cognizance of betting or 
bets." In declaring ofl bets on the race in question the 
Crescent City oflijials certainly took cognizance of the 
betting. Perhaps the rule q ioted has reference to the 
Western Jockey Club as an organization, and is not 
meant to be binding upon the individual members of 
tnat organization. It has certainly been variously 
treated by racing association members of the Western 
Jockey Club. When Abe Frank ran away in the May- 
wood Stakes at Washington Park and was excused from 
starting the stewards of Chicago's swell racing associa- 
tion conformed to the letter and the spirit of the West- 
ern Joe key Club's rule. All bets stood, and at least 
$100 000 was thus burnt up. A little later, over at Har- 
lem, a horse was excused trom starting in a race because 
of a mishap to him after toe betting on the race had 
begun. Judge Hamilton did lake cognizance of the bet- 
ting, and ordered that money bet on that particular 
horse be refunded. Subsequently a similar case came 
up at Worth, and there, as here last Tuesday, all bets 
were declared off. In the light of what has just hap- 
pened it might be well for the Western Jockey Club to 
make plain what was intended when Section 32 of that 
organization's rules was adopted. 


The four-year-old chestnut colt Modrine, by imp Sir 
Modred— Katrine, died at Sheepshead Bay track a few 
days ago of spinal meningitis. He was the property of 
Trainer James H. McCormick and was bought by him 
from Green Morris this summer. In the colors of Green 
Morris he was an eft time winner, aud more especially 
he was successful at the San Francisco meetings last 
winter, where had as much speed as anything in 

James R. Keene will have one of the best stables of 
race horses in England next season. It is announced 
that he has just secured the noted English trainer Felix 
Leach to take charge of his string Sam Darling, who 
trained for him last year, is in bad health and has been 
compelled to take a trip to South Africa. 

At the head of the string will be Conroy, the only 
three year-old that ever won the Brooklyn Handi- 
cap. He has fully recovered from his stone bruise 
which caused a quarter crack, and is in fine physical 
condition. Among the other noted horses are Cap and 
Bells, winner of the English Oaks this yenr; Disguise 
II., who finished third for a Derby; Chacornac, the win- 
ner of the Futurity of 1900, and Noonday, a fast stake 

The horses have been shipped to Beckhampton, Mr. 
Keene's regular training grounds at Newmarket. 

After an absence from the track of three years, that 
grand old race horse Buckwa is again in training at Oak- 
land, Cal. Since his last appearance under saddle he 
has been running in pasture, and his owner has decided 
to see whether he will stand the severe work necessary 
to put him in shape to repeat some of his former victo- 
ries. Some days Buckwa gallops fairly strong and on 
others he pulls up lame. There is no intention to force 
the old bread-winner,and if he will not stand up, back to 
the green fields he goes to end his days, for his owner, 
Ed Purser, will never sell him. 

Imported Royal Flush, the horse formerly owned by 
John Drake, the Chicago plunger, with which he made 
such a sensation in England in 1900, is in tine form at 
Oakland at present. Morris thinks he has a rarely good 
race horse in this fellow, and Lester Reiff is authority 
for the statement that he was next to the best spinter in 
England last year. 

James F. Caldwell, formerly starter on the track of the 
Saratoga Racing Association and other race courses, is 
seriously ill at Saratoga, N. Y., with sciatica, which has 
aflected him for five weeks. 

When the Heart is Affected 

By rheumatism or any of the muscles near that organ 
it is like tampering with an electric wire, lor death may 
come at any moment. If life is worth it, do not hesitate, 
but get Dr. Drummond's Lightning Remedy. Send .$5 to 
the Drummond Medicine Co., New York, and they will 
send ycu two large bottles, enough for a month's treat- 
ment, by first express. It is not as quick as electricity, 
but will save your lite if you take it in time. 

The Thoroughbred RecorA 


We present to our readers this week, a list of winning 
two-year olds under their sires for the year of 1901 up to, 
and including December 26. An addenda will be pub- 
lished in next week's issue which will make the table 
complete for the entire year. It is a much mooted 
question as to the supremacy of the brilliant stars that 
B^one during the year. Many think Endurance by Right 
carried off the palm, others Nasturtium, while Yankee, 
Blue Girl, Abe Frank and Goldsmith have many ad- 
mirers who count each as champions. We shall not 
endeavor to discuss the championship, as the table be- 
low deals with the relative merits of sires. 

In number of races won the redoubtable and lamented 
hero of McGrathiana, the peerless Hanover, leads with 
18 winners of 47 races; imp. Pirate of Penzance, the 
useful son of imp. Prince Charlie, and very often called 
the "poor man's friend," is tied with his stable companion 
the classy looking Lamplighter for second honors, the 
former having 11 winners of 45 races, while toe son of 
Spendthrift and imp. Torchlight is credited with 14 win- 
ners of 45 rgces. St. Carlo is fourth on the list, the 
Californian furnishing 10 winners of 42 races; next 
comes Hastings, who inaugurates his stud career with 
the creditable showing of 16 winners of 38 races; sixth 
on the list is Major Carson's clever sire imp. Ben 
Strome, who is represented by 14 winners of 34* races. 
In number of races won by an individual imp. Pirate of 
Penzince stands first, his daughter Huntressa having 
earned brackets 17 times; Inspector B. follows closely, 
his magnificent daughter Endurance by Right having 
won 16 times. 

This table does not include winners at the Charleston 
and Savannah meetings; these will be added in next 
week's issue.
