CRACK ENGLISH TWO-YEAR-OLD OF 1908. Bayardos Constantly Successful Career List of His Triumphs and His Pedigree, Bayardo is emphatically the two-year-old of the year in England. A bay colt, by Bay Ronald Gallcia, and the property of Mr. Fairie. he has bad a career of uninterrupted success and is deemed quite unbeatable in his present form, although some critics view his Derby chance next year with suspicion. Augur, of Sporting Life, saying after the colt won the Middle Park Plate: "lie is a inarvelously line two-year-old. not to look at. but as a racer. Though lie does not walk well, he is a rare mover in his quick paces. I cannot, however, go so far as those who declare that he is sure to win the Derby. It remains to be seen whether he will retain as a three-year-old the supremacy he enjoys at present. 1 have my doubts." Bayardo anade his debut in the New Stakes at Ascot June IS, and won with Perdiccas second. Perola third and ten more unplaced. His next start was for the richest stake for two-year-olds of the English turf, the National Breeders Produce Stakes, at Sandown Park July IS. With 12S pounds in the saddle he won easily from Glasgerion, Vivid and eleven other youngsters. Carrying 134 pounds he next won the Richmond Stakes at Goodwood, with Vivid second, Oakmere third and one other unplaced. September 29, at the Newmarket First October Meeting, be won the Buckenham Stakes, only Bonnie Lassie and Vivario opposing him. He carried 126 pounds and at the same meeting. October 2. and with the same weight up. won the Rous Memorial Stakes, having Auceps as his solitary opponent. At the Newmarket Second October Meeting be added the Middle Park Plate to his spoils. This was formerly the most valuable event for two-year-olds of the English turf and was called the "Two-Year-Old Derby." In this he carried 129 pounds and was opposed by Vivid, Blankney II. and Shikaree, the small field testifying to his well recognized supremacy. His record and his pedigree are: Date. Race Track.
