KEENE YEARLINGS ARE A GRAND LOT. Disguise St. Mildred Colt the Stables Fancy Other Fine Youngsters. About the brown colt by Disguise St. Mildred, said to b? the sensationally tried v youngster of the Keene lot, an eastern reporter writes this: "There is no doubt but that tlie colt is .the fancy of the stable people. If there is a second Colin in the lot. It may well be this one. He is a handsome, -racy looking fellow with a fine head and shoulders that stand out like those of an old horse. He shows great depth through the heart and girth, and a middle piece that even when he is fit, will scarcely show any signs of being tucked up. His quarters even up with all his good points." The colt is so far entered in the Great American, Tremont and Expectation Stakes. His sire, Disguise, is by Domino, out of Bonnie Gal, by Galopiu, out of Bonnie Doon grandam of Watercress by Rapid Rhone, out of Queen Mary and was bred by Mr. J. R. Keene and is now in his stud. S. Darling trained him in England, where he ran third in Diamond Jubilees Derby and won the 0,000 Jockey Club Stakes of 1900 with Diamond Jubilee and Scintillant behind him. St. Mildred, the dam, has produced so far, Knight Errant, by Trenton, the dead Australian sire. She was bred in England by Mr. J. S. Harrison, by St. Simon, out of Lady Fitzjames, by Scottish Chief, out of Hawthorn Bloom, by Ketlledrura. Of seme of the others in the Keene lot of ten colts, fourteen fillies and four geldings, the same writer says: "The chestnut filly by Voter, out of Cinderella, half-sister to Peter Pan and full sister to Early and Often, is built on the order of a stallion. She is heavily made all over. Has fine speed lines and looks the pcture of her sire, Voter. "A half-brother to Superman is a grandly built chestnut by Disguise, out of Anomaly. This colt shows the best of racing lines with neck and shoulders and middle piece as good as ever were put on a colt. His quarters are extra heavy for a two-year-old, and he has been highly tried. "A racy -looking colt, showing size and quality, is the brown by Ben Brush, out of that speedy mare Cap and Bells. He is built on the finest of lines all through, especially his quarters and stifle, which stand out and give him an air of distinction.
