ARGENTINES GREAT RACING AND BREEDING A Country of High Prices and Largo Turf Propor ¬ tions Prizes Average Very High HighLondon London Eng July 20 From the South American Mr Paats who came over to take Cyllene and Polar Star to Buenos Ayrca some sharp facts about rac I ing and breeding In the Argentine Republic were re ¬ cently gleaned The future home of the tyo great English horses Is the Ojo de Agua Studij This es ¬ tablishment is a farm three miles square nine miles lying about 350 miles south of Kiuare ncjios Ayres Many of the paddocks cover an area of 200 acres It was established seventeen years ago thougll the proprietors had previously carried on the breeding of bloodstock elsewhere The first stallion imported by the stud was Gay Hermit a son of Hermit He died three years ago He proved himself a veritable treasure Mares by him are among the most successful breeders in the Argentine They have thirty of them at Ojo de Agua Then came Stiletto by Beaudcscrt next Kertdal now twentyfive years Of age then Plcter maritzburg which died January 1 last from tumors in the intestines caused it is believed by files and now Cyllene and Polar Star are on their way out Aud by the way the two lastnamed have been insured for 255000 Cyllene for 155000 and Polar Star for 100000 There arc ninety brood inares at Ojo dc Agua so that it is obvious that an enormOus capital is1 sunk in the farm and its stock But if the outlay is heavy so is the re turn substantial At Buenos Ayres last year the stud sold thirtyseven yearlings and they made an average just short of 5000 That Is a figure cal ¬ culated to make our own breeders mouths water the more so when it is explained that the youngsters were not all by fashionable sires It would thus seem that Cyllene and Polar Star cannot fall to turn out great business propositions When Ktuidal was bought for 40000 he was said to be a dear bargain for he was eighteen years old at the time As a matter of fact he has got his pur ¬ chase money back over and over again From the breeding point of view the Argentine seems indeed to be a veritable El Dorado DoradoAnd And what H the secret of it all Simply that racing out there can be made a most profitable mirsuit There Is no prize of less value than lr OOJ Thp entry fees and forfeits are very trifling The money conies from the parimutuel Ten per cent Is deducted from the money invested at the totall 7ors and the Jockey Club gets seventenths of it Mr Panttf is the proud owner of one of the most important racing stables in the Argentine Three times he has won the Derby at Buenos Ayrcs twice his horses hava finished second and on two or three occasions his colors cerise green cap have been carried into third place By the way yllene was on Thursday adorned with Mr Paats colors for lie had a cerise head band with green buttons Last year Mr Paats won stakes to the value of 105000 although no single prize amounted to more than 5000 He has been racing for eleven years and during that period his winnings average 65000 per annum The Argentine Derby is worth 22500 to the winner and 2000 is allotted to the second horse It Is in contemplation to offer an in teruational prize of 50000 or 60000 in 1010 the entries for which will close within a short time of the race The contest will take place In October and it Is hoped to attract some English and French horses of classic caliber caliberThe The style in which he scored on Saturday leaves no doubt that the Very bloodllke Bayardo is eon siderably the best twoyearold that has run this year Bred bv his owner Mr Fairie and foaled January 31 1000 he is a bay colt by the defnnct Bay Ronald son of Hampton out of Gallcia dam of Eastern her first foal by Galopin from Isolctta by Isonomy out of Lady Muncaster dam of the Middle Park Plate winner Speedwell which I know from his owner Mr Fairie was an extremely good but unfortunately unsound horse his moder ¬ ate understandings being incapable of carrying his bulky frame frameThe The extreme smartness of Bayardo makes the death last year of Bay Ronald a matter of much regret regretBayardo Bayardo is a really beautiful colt low lengthy widegirthed with perfect symmetry and bloodlike quality coupled with sufficient power A busy active colt without a trace of nervousness he re ¬ flects credit on bis Hamptorf and1 Galopin blood which is steadied by Isonomy and the Blink Bonny taproot at the back of it itThe The coifs tabulated pedigree is appended Touchstone cj i Newminster BeeSwingv 2 f 3 The Slave f Kettledrum Rataplan Hybla Lanercosf Queen

the goodlooking twoyearold sister to Flair and Lesbia made a very creditable display be ¬ ing third In a finish that involved stamina for the National Breeders Produce Stakes at Sandown Park July 2 Great things are expected of this filly which is larger than Lesbia She was ridden v Luclcri Lyne and only Bayardo classed as lirst of the seasons colts and the Exccllenza colt classed as second of tlie seasons colts beat her herThursdays Thursdays St Leger quotations show that Ills Majesty is a firm favorite at 3 to 1 over SIgnor inctta Norman III aud others From his recent raoiug the St Leger looks like a gift to the Tool colt which is not only fast but a stayer of cup quality qualityThe The valuable five furlongs Grand Criterium dOsl tnde run for at Ostend last Sunday attracted ten youngsters Mr E Blancs Flls du Vent being a to 4 chance and leading throughout he won very easily by two lengths in Sterns hands from Ghadames Bred by his owner the winner which gives one the impression of being a very smart colt should do well if he stands training but has rather bad knees and is a bay brother to Jardy by tin Triple Crown champion Flying Fox out of tin Oaks winner Airs ami Graces Flls du Vent is i the Middle Park Plate as are Bayardo Perola and Princesse de Gallcs He is also entered for the Derby but not in the Two Thousand or St Leger although in the Eclipse Stakes

Silvio She produced in 1005 Medeah by Masque which won the French Oaks of 100S 100SThe The current Sporting Times says There has been u lot of irresponsible talk as to the comparative merits of Norman HI and Santo Strato but we are able to state on the best authority that when the two horses were tried together before the Two Thousand Guineas Norman III only won by a head Santo Strato is named after the patron saint of Posillipo Lord Roseberys estate in southern Europe Mr Leopold Rothschild was on a visit to Lord Rosebery there when he named the colt
