No attempt will ever be made to train bim again. He -,... - to the staid ami what mares Mr. Schorr breeds l this year will be mated Willi him. Star Charter is a richly bred son of Star Sheet and with proper chances will, no doubt, make a successful sire. He was surely a great race horse, especially in his 1 four year-old form.
