NEW BLOOD FOR HURRICANA STUD. New York, December G. Cable dispatches announce that John Sanford is on his way home from France anil that he predicts a racing boom due Iu New York state. Mr. Sanford also gave out the information that he had made a number of purchases of thoroughbreds at Deauville that would eventually find their way to his Hurricana Stud at Amsterdam, New York. When Mr. Sanford went abroad it was the generally "accepted belief that he intended a campaign on French courses, but now it would seem that his purchases were principally made with, a view or replenishing ids stock of broodmares at Hurricana. lie purchased fillies, and while they will doubtless be raced abroad he intends to eventually bring the best of them to this side of the Atlantic. E. J. Albright, who has trained the Sanford .horses for the past few seasons, has written that the crop of yearlings at the Amsterdam farm this year is particularly promising, while the weanlings are an exceptional lot. Mr. Sanford has made several nominations for the stakes of next season and it Is evident that even should he race abroad he will always retain his close interest in the American turf. His father, the late General Stephen Sanford. remained steadfastly loyal to the American turf iu all its troublous times and the present .master of tlia farm will follow in his footsteps.
