GARRET WILSONS HANDSOME PROFIT. A3 an Illustration of what great bargains are often secured at dispersal and combination sales. Garret 1. Wilson liought the following four mares out of the Raucho del Paso Stud sale, which was conducted at Madison Square Garden, New York, In the fall of 1005 by the Fasig-Tipton Company: Allaiiotte, eli. m, liy Sir Modred Allauah; bred to Star Ruby $ 500 Modreda, eh. in, by Sir Modred Both Dun-liar; bred to Goldfinch 100 Torrid, li. in. by Sir Modred Fuhrre; bred to Royal Flush III 325 Fascine. It. m. by Indlo Fascination; bred . to Star Ruby -100 For these four mares Mr. Wilson gave ,325, and the four yearlings from these niares sold on Thursday of last week, at public auction, for just 0,000. For the Allanelte colt he got ,100; the Modreda colt brought ,500; the Torrid colt was knocked down for ,700, and the Fascine colt brought ,000. It Is a mystery how mares ltred as these are, nnd iu foal to such horses as Star Ruby, Royal Flush III., and Goldfinch could have passed the eagle eyes of the shrewd horsemen who attended this sale. But this was no exception, for it happens at every sale and will continue to do so. How anyone living on a farm can keep from buying two or three of these mares is hard to understand. They would cost little, If anything, to keep, and there is always a chance or getting just such returns as did Mr. Wilson. Thoroughbred Record.
