years ago will not survive many of the fierce contests which this great stake is destined to produce The Oakland Cal track is one of remarkable I speed The idle and floating gossip about it being

Harlem in 1891 He was then the property of John Rodegap Bodega j jFather Father Father Bill Dalys Days midget jockey OConnor O'Connor has gone to California to ride at light weights for Dave Gideon The boy can ride at 65 pounds and is undoubtedly promising but to compare him with Tod Todd Sloan or even Clawson Lawson as a New York alleged turf publication does is so absurd as to he almost idiotic The mighty Sloan will hardly be flattered by the comparison An apology is due to the readers of DAILY RACING FORM for the inaccuracy 9f the table of American Turf Records which was printed in the issue of Wednesday December 29 The errors were mostly about dates and were caused by the acceptance of existing and current rec recd ¬ ords cords as published by socalled scaled turf authorities past and present Since the Decomber29 table was printed each record has been checked and traced to the source of creation and many errprs errors have been traced and corrected A hurdle race record has been added to the table So have the figures of three in five heats race A new table as prepared for tho thou American Sporting Manual will be printed in DAILY RACING FORM within the next few days Its figures can be accepted as authentic The work that made them good also revealed the slipshod methods of recording records by selfstyled selfishly turf author ¬ ities cities i iIn in In the history of the American turf four im ¬ ported horses stand out prominent by reason of the vigor and greatness of their progeny and descendants Diomed Domed winner of the Epsom Derby of 1780 brought of this country when well advanced in years founded a line distinguished in every generation and now represented best by tho thou sons and daughters of Emperor of Norfolk and El Rio Rey Frey Glencoe Glance imported by James Jackson of Alabama in 1836 made a very great impression on the breed ¬ ing King interests to the United States and it is doubtful if there is a stronger male line of descent in the world than that which reads Glencoe Glance Vandal Virgil Hindoo Indoor Hanover Leamington Lexington a very great raco race horse and a very great sire added a new and valuable ele dele ¬ ment meant of great influence among our bloodlines that is still second to none in value as the doughty deeds of Henry of Navarre Navarro have re ¬ cently gently demonstrated The fourth of the illustri illustrious ¬ ous onus quartet Bonnie Scotland was second to none in the speed hardiness courage and power of his descendants Other horses im ¬ ported at various periods have contributed valued elements to our thoroughbred strains but none have equaled tho thou wide spread in ¬ fluence fluencies of the four named The death of Uncas Uncaps a few days ago calls at ¬ tention tenting to tho thou fact that the sons of Lexington have nownearly downwardly all gone the way of all flesh and it is doubtful if more than four or five arc now living Fiddlesticks is at Mr Belmonts Belmont place near Lexington Ky Duke of Magenta is a stable companion of Meddler at Mr Forbes place near Boston Wyndham Lynda Walden still has the hero of the Centennial year Tom Ochiltree Ichnite on his farm near Middleburg Middlebrow Md Wanderer may still bo alive but if any others are living it is in forgotten obscurity obscurityBut obscurity But in his day Lexington a native bred horse and fifth in the direct male lino limo from Diomed Domed was deemed the greatest sire ever known in America and ultraenthusiaets proclaimed him the greatest in the world Year after year his sons and daughters won nearly everything that was worth winning and i was anticipated that such horses as Kentucky Norfolk Harry Bas ott Otto Tom Bowling Kingfisher and other great performers could not fail to be as great in the stud as on the track But no son of Lexington proTed parroted a distinct success as a sire though it cannot be fairly said that they were wholly failures for for one thing the mares owing their
