youngsters bought by Mr Kohler at the same sale As a twoyearold he made but one start In England running third to Pictorial and Silles both good twoyearolds in the I villain Stakes at the Manchester spring meeting seven others finishing behind The colt was well en ¬ gaged in English stake races but the sudden death of Mr Kohler rendered them void ami put Tippecanoe in the sale list At this juncture his present owners appeared hi England in search of racing material and among other young horses had the good luck to buy Tippecanoe Hendel was another thai Messrs Dvment louglit from the
