SMITH S PROMISING TWO-YEAR-OLDS. Lexington. Ky.. January 29.— It seems that William A. Smith is going to have at least two cracks out of the nine two-year-olds in his barn at the Kentucky Association track. He bought the youngsters from Milton Young around December 1, picking them from among a nmnber of untried, but halter broken colts and tillies at Mctirathiana Stud and paying an average of something like 00. He took them up the first week in December, but neve;-had an opportunity to try them out until last week. The breeding of the seven colts and two fillies i as follows: Bay colt, by Nasturtium — Lady Philnra. Bay colt, by Senipronlus--Madiue. Brown colt, by Lack ford- Distaff. Chestnut colt, by Retpiital Cnpfull. Chestnut colt, by Scinpronius Lilith. Chestnut coll. bv Monsieur tie LOrnie — Wine Drop. Chestnut colt, by Monsieur de LOrme — Lady Lawrence. Brown lilly. by Pirate of Penzance — Dusk. Brown filly, by Monsieur tie LOrme — Noogs. They have all worked the quarter through the stretch in better than twenty-four seconds, but the Lady Philnra colt and the Wine Drop colt are tie-stars. The dam of the Nasturtium colt is a half sister to the four winners, Fortis. Hansliorougb Kaffir and Lady Vera. Wine Drop, the dam of the Monsieur de LOrme colt, has not had anything : rate and did not race herself, but she is a hall sister to Henry Clay Rye, winner of the Crescenl City Derby. Both of these colts were foaled in May. These youngsters will begin their racing here at Hie spring meeting, which will open the third week in April.
