BARGAIN IN NEW ZEALAND SALE. There can be no doubt says an Australian exchange i about some of the horses sold at the S!ead dispersal sale having brought a good deal more than their value, but as was the case of the St. Albans sale, some bargains were also secured. One of tlin lucky men at that sale was E. J. Watt. He bought Barley Bree, carrying Royal Scotch, for 200 guinea-, and went to 1.000 guineas for La Notte. the dam of Noctuiform. in foal to Multiform. Shortly after Mr. Watt took possession of La Notte she foaled a colt to Multiform, and that colt, which now races as .Midnight Sun. won the New Zealand Cup recentlv. The late Mr. Stead had a strong partiality for mares lKlongii.g to the No. ■ family, and he seldom missed a chance of purchasing any mares tracing to this tribe. At the time of his death he had six broodmares in his stud tracing to the No. 0 taproot and they have all done well at the stud. The last two New Zealand Cup winners. Vice Admiral aud Midnight Sun. are out of two of his No. 9 mares, and as i- Bon Rove, the winner of the recent C. J. C. Derby. The No. 9 family has been very much to the fore during the past couple of years through th« successes of The Parisian Melbourne Cupi, Kir-nattan Birthday Cupi. Viee Admiral and Midnight Sun New Zealand Cupi. Wolawa Victoria Derby and Bon Rove C. J. C. Derby*.
