It should be mentioned that at both this sale and the one which preceded it. R. S. Slevler. W. B.

When the grand-appearing Aipiascutuni — Adalia colt was kno-ked down to him he remarked: "He should win a Derby in America." From which it may be inferred the rotund and genial Jack has American racing in view. It is observable that the majority of the yearlings bought were colts. For service iu this country as sires of the future we shall thus gain representatives of all that is fashionable and successful in modern English breeding. It is inconceivable that some of these colts will not turn out to be of high class and atfoid us an example of what choice English youngsters can do in competition with the pick of our native breds. Among those bought are colts by Chaucer. St. Amant. Thrush. Llangibby, Troiithcck. Marajax. Polyinelus, Sunstar. Spearmint, Boyal Realm. Cicero. Sf. Frusqnin. Santry. Tredennis. Roi Herode. Rouuuclanrc. Lemberg. Radium. Aqiiascuttim. Bachelors Double. Desmond and San-toi. which about covers all that is desirable from there. Of the forty-eight given in the foregoing lists thirty-seven are colts. In England prices for horses at auction are in guineas. A guinea is .04 and the prices given are in our money on that basis.
