DURYEA MAY START TENNESSEE FARM New York, September 14. nickory Aralley, Tenn.. which does not mean anything to the majority of horse people who read it, may be within a few years famous as a thoroughbred breeding place. II. B. Duryea, who owns a good many thousand acres down there in the Tennessee country, which are used as a hunting ground, lias seriously considered the proposition of establishing a great thoroughbred breeding place there and it is said that the yearlings now at Saratoga will be sent to Tennessee this fall. John Iluggins, Mr. Dnryeas trainer, says that it is possible that Mr. Duryea would start breeding in Tennessee and that the horses he now owns might be sent there some time in the future, though he would not say that would be done the coming winter. The young stallion Irish Lad and some broodmares are now in Kentucky at E. E. Cowdins farm. Irish Lad has not had time to show his value as a sire yet. but there is every prospect that he will be a great success in the stud, perhaps as groat as he was with colors up, which Mr. Duryea would regard an honor indeed. Irish Lad was a great race horse and bred to great inares, as he will he without doubt, he would fitly start a breeding place that should become famous.
