MRS. BRADLEY TO CONDUCT FARM. The dispersal sale of thoroughbred horses, belonging to the estate of the late Robert Bradley, took place July 31 at the Greenway Farm in Charles City County, Virginia. The sale was well attended by horsemen residing in that section of the country. There were about fifty head sold, including stallions, brood mares, three-year-olds, two-year-olds, yearlings and weanlings, and it was the consensus of opinion among horsemen present that the sale on the whole was a very good one. Blitzen the Iron Horse was bought in by Mrs. Bradley and will be kept in the stud at Greenway, where this grand old racehorse, winner of so many hard-fought races, will probably end his days. The stallions Wyalusing and Hampshire changed hands. Among tiie brood mares sold were Virgie, the dam of Robert Waddell, winner of the American Derby; Panway, Florena Hubbard, Eminence, dam of Peter Paul; Broadway Belle, Sue B., dam of Bony Boy; Agnes Coulter, Allie VIrge, Allie Violet and others. E. A. Sanders, Jr., of Richmond, was the largest purchaser. This gentleman, besides being a prominent business man in Richmond, is a large landowner In Charles City County. The dozen or more head of brood mares and colts sold to him will be placed on one of his farms. Mrs. Bradley will continue to run the Greenway Farm. She has reserved quite a number of the choicest brood mares, and Aloha and Blitzen also will be kept in the stud.
