DEY DEL CAREDES GOOD DAUGHTER. Except for a very few representatives in out-of-the-way places, the male line from Lexington liTickto Dioincd is practically extinct in this country. But a great-grandson of Lexington is making a great stir in Ireland because of the speed he confers on his progeny. This horse is Americus, by Emperor of Norfolk Clara D., by Glcnelg. He was bred by E. J. Baldwin and raced successfully in this country as Rey del Caredes, then was taken to England by Richard Croker, when his name was changed to Americus. When Americus was done with racing there Mr. Croker leased him to an Italian breeder. In Italy his success in the stud was so pronounced that Mr. Croker recalled him for service in Lis own Glencairn stud. A daughter of Ids, the two-year-old lilly, Americus Girl, belonging to E. P. Gall. Is held to be the best of her age and sex in Ireland. In her lirst three starts she won the Drogheda Memorial at the Curragh, Baidoyle Foal Stakes at Baldoyie, and the Leo-pardstown Grand Prize at Leopardstown. These arc three of the richest prizes of the Irish turf for two-ycar-pldsl Old Lexington will bo grandly avenged on the American breeders if tills expatriated descendent of his should eventually sire an Epsom Derby winner.
