RALPH CHIEF CONTRIBUTOR TO GEORGE J. LONGS TOTAL . - The respected master of Bashford Manor Stud, George J. Long, developed a capital two-year-oM last Tail r in the Sempronius colt, Ralph. This colt was slow in ripening into his true form, but developed into such a star in September and October that he went into winter quarters victor over such as Little XepUew Bringhurst, Black Toney. Hodge and other good ones of lesser note. Such an impression did ids late racing make- that it was reported the healthy sum for these days of ?20,000 was offered for him and refused" Kalph was Mr. Long s principal money earner, but his two fillies, Semprite and Celesta, raced quite well for him, feemprite showing a high order of speed in some of her races and being likelv to prove a good one in the handicaps of the approaching new year. His Sir Huon colt, Harry L., was a disappointment and did not race up to his private, reputation. He may make amends next year. Mr. Iong breeds his own racers and, in the matter of their stable earnings, did better than in 1912, when his total was S9 281 His stable record for this year is: Horse. Col. and Sex. A.
