Walden hardly realized enough out of her consignment to pay the freight on the horses from the farm in Maryland. None of the horses consigned by James R. Keene was sent in from Castieton Stud. There was not a bid on the stallion Golden Badge, the last horse offered, and he was led from the ring. The next consignment in the catalogue is that of the Millstrcam Stud, including the stallions Adam and Handspring, but it is announced officially tonight that they have been withdrawn from the sale. The consignment of Karl Jungbluth, it is understood, will not be offered. Other withdrawals would not be surprising. Prices arc lower than they have been at any time since the panic of 1S93. The sale of yearlings began tonight but was not "concluded in time for a report in this issue of Daily Racing Form.
