THINKS WELL OF HESSIAN. New York, November IS. Trainer A. J. Joyner believes that his preatly improved colt, Hessian, will prove a high-class three-year-old and the colt will not be declared from any of his engagements for next season. Hessian is one of the largest youngsters in training. He stands all of sixteen hands one inch on his plates and he has the proportions of an equine Colossus. Colonial, the dam of this big brown colt, is one of the most highly prized of J. B. Haggins mares. She was a daughter of the Musket horse Trenton Thankful Blossom, by Paradox. Her second dam was The Apple, by Hermit and her third dam was Black Star, by Forerunner. The Apple was the dam of the filly Onc-I-Love, which won the Great Eastern Handicap of 1S95 under the silks of the late Colonel William P. Thompson. One-I-Love is now at General Stephen Sanfords Hurricana Farm. The up-state breeder thinks pretty well of her. Hessian is engaged in the principal three-year-old stakes to be run next season and Joyner believes he will go any distance.
