NOTES OF" THE TURF. It is said that Capt. S. S. Brown, the Pittsburg millionaire, recently made an offer of 5,000 for the Epsom Derby winner of last year, Ard Patrick, but that J. Gubbins, the owner of the colt, refused to sell at this figure and named 50,000 as his price. Captain Brown, it is said, wanted to plaqe Ard Patrick at his Senorita. Stud farm, near Lexington, Ky. The queen of western race mares, Ida Pickwick, a daughter of Mr. Pickwick and Ida K., has foaled a chestnut filly by Og-den, the only English bred winner of the Futurity. The royally bred filly was dropped Sunday morning, and, coming on Washingtons birthday, Mr. Madden naturally will expect great things of her. The aged broodmare Una B., by Monarchist, and the dam of Grey Friar, succumbed to her infirmities last Monday and died at Kingston Stud. She was twenty-four years of age, and was the property of Baker and Gentry.
