GRIFFINS GOOD TWO-YEAR-OLDS. II. T. Griffins eastern division of his stable of aiv-s • oiixiis e." K..r! G. Sod 1-. yulii -. ..": ;i different sires. Mr. Griffins brother. W. K. Griffin. lias charge of the stable at Belmont Park. The yearlings are a fine collection, and while none brought fancy prices at the sales they display all the ear-marks of runners, aDd It is evident Tommy Griffin still retains the judgment of a thor-ugh horseman. The largest is a chestnut colt by King William Il--Vivette. by Sir Modred. He is a half-brother to Loupy. a winner in l!J0t . His sire. King William ii.. is a full-brother to the grand stake winner. Kingston. While he is a colt of great size he is a Jiapely fellow, deep through the heart, well coupled ind with a good substantial set of legs and feet. Blues is the sire of a bay filly out of Lady Ballard, by Ballard. This filly is a half-sister to five ivinners, the most prominent of which was Kingdon. hy Kingston. Kingdon was a colt of good class, winning the Double Kvent. Expectation, Undergraduate and several other important events. She is a lengthy filly, and although her sire was a light barreled horse she does not resemble him in this respect, and probably gets her stamina from her dam. whose produce were of the compact order. A, brown filly by Alloway — One Moment, by Pkata of Penzance, has more size than the Lady Ballard filly. Her trials were very satisfactory, especially in the mud. She comes from a good family and if she trains on should prove a serviceable filly. Black Lily is tlte dam of a black filly by Wools-thorpe. This is a neat, racy miss, and looks a deal like her granddam. Lily of the West, who was a high-class performer on the western race courses some years ago. She is well turned, having a fine oblique shoulder, shapely quarters and good under pinning. She was well tried and showed her heels to many of the yearlings Mr. Griffin shipped to the coast. A bay filly by St. Maxim — Sweet Anna Page, by The Bard, is rather small, but is a taking type filly, and. being a good doer, will probably thrive and spread out during the winter months. In her trials she gave much promise and is a filly of line action.
