* I f . j • , j . . [ , . 1 1 ? 1 1 1 ■ f KING EDWARDS STRING OF RACERS. Richard Marsh Is Training Twenty-Four for Englands Ruler — All Grandly Bred. i Richard Marsh has In training at Newmarket for ■ the campaign of 1!M7 at the meetings iu England i sixty-five horses, of which twenty-four are the r property of King Edward IV. the largest string he I I] lias had in training since he has worn the crown. v The other horses iu trainer Marshs establishment, r which is known as F.gerton House, are the property " of Lord Wolverton. Mr. Arthur James. Mr. J. W. t Lanareh and himself. "The Royal team is headed by the aged Rainfall and the six-year-old Coxcomb, next to which in I oint of age come the four-year-olds Mores and Cheverel. says London Sporting Life. "Several of the three-year-olds were mentioned in dealing with last yea:: PMBttB, iind the .-■■l ring is completed by the Inclusion of thirteen Juveniles, each of which was bred at the Royal Stud. Eight are by Persim- , mon, two by St. Simon, and one each by Ladas, Florizel II., and Diamond Jubilee. Thus It will be seen that the same strains which have been maintained, in recent years are again in strong evidence, and it is this fact alone which makes one afraid to prophesy any great improvement in the racing ability of the Kings horses. Perhaps they will at last rise to the occasion, yet the fact remains that, although Persimmon has sired any number of good stock for other owners, he has never yet given His Majesty anything within measurable distance of himself as a racehorse. Of the thirteen youngsters Peridone is an own nVother to Zinfandel, and this one. at least, should race. Then there are a half sister to Victoria and an own sister to Slim Lad, and it is quite time that the dam of the latter, the beautiful Laodamia. produced something useful. Maid of Norway, an own sister to Nulli Seeundus, has already been before the public, under melancholy circumstances, she lKing the filly which shied at a | assing motor recently, thereby causing fatal injuries to ker rider." The following is a list of the Kings horses : FOIR-YEAR OLDS AND FPWARD. Rainfall, br. h. aged, by Clwyd — Deluge. Coxcomb, b. h. t . by Kilcock — Gaiety. Mores, b. c, 4. by Ladas — Medora.

In racing King Edward has had a long spell of disheartening luck, such as would have caused many another enthusiast to transfer his allegiance to ► other pastimes. Last year bis horses returned him i only .!,940 in prizes. The only winners were ! Cheverel. which took the Newmarket St. Leger and I later another ra v at Sandown; Victoria, which i scored in the Greet Surry Foal Plate at Epsom, and I Hsella. victorious in the Hurst Park Foal Plate, which was worth ,t 75. Nulli Seeundus, Which made his debut iu the Derby, was the greatest disappointment. He is now racing over the hurdles with distinction and it is possible that he will come back to carry the royal colors successfully on the fiat.
