PECULIAR STORY OF HAG-TO-HAGS DAM. The best two-year-old developed thus far during: the season Ui France is the peculiarly named Hag-to-nag. a colt owned by James Hennessy. His sire is Perth, and his dam Haulette. Through a curious chain of circumstances Haulette was acknowledged a genuine thoroughbred ouly a short time ago. She is Australian-bred, and was a very successful race mare. Haulette is descended from Young Gulnare. n grand-daughter of Cutty Sark., a mare exported from England to Australia in company with othei maren about 1830. It is said that the man iu charge died en route: at any rate, the marcs reached Australia with the pedigrees lost and even their identities in doubt. It could not be established that the mart introduced to Australia as Cutty Sark was really that one, and her name was not inscribed in tho Australian stud book. Her descendants, however, in looks and speed, proved themselves to be thoroughbreds, and in 1002 steps were taken to have their names Inscribed. On condition that she should also be acknowledged as a thoroughbred in England and France. Heunessy bought Haulette and sho arrived in Franco in 1903.
