THE KING LEASES IRISH YEARLINGS. "A delightful sign of the times for Irish breeders of bloodstock is that King Edward has leased six yearling colts from Colonel Hall Walker," says the London Sportsman. "They were all bred at the Colonels stud farm in County Kildare, and are there now, lint will very shortly be sent across the channel to Egerton House." Cahlerstone, a bay by Persimmon, out of Siiew-bread, thus own brother to Sir Edgar Vincents smart horse Shah .Telian. Oakmere, a bay by Wildfowler, out of Puff Ball, Poins dam. Minorie Japanese for success, a hay by Cyllene, out of Mother Siegal, dam of Freeborn. Prince Pippin, a bay by Desmond, out of Goody Two Shoes. Moorcock, a bay by Gallinule, out of Fair Jean. La La, a colt by Ladas, out of La Carolina, the latter a mare Colonel Hall Walker bought from His Majesty when she was carrying La La. "It is a certainty," continues the writer, "that there is not a man, woman or child In the Emerald Isle who does not wish His Majesty success in this, his sporting adventure in Irish bloodstock."
