j, SPUR CHECKS THE HARD LUCK OF BUTLERS STABLE WITH THREE-YEAR-OLDS The imposing stable of James Rutler, while it did not return to the good mark it achieved the first season after the New York horseman acquired his good band of Keene-bred horses, considerably more than doubled its winnings of 1915. In 1914 the stable, made up wholly of two-year-olds, captured 0,-123 in stakes and purses,, and with this commanding string of youngsters to enter the next racing season, it seemed as if the Rutler Stable would have a big year in 1915, but at the end of that period his stables winnings had dropped to 2,949, of which nearly half fell to two-year-olds. Last Coin, unbeaten as a two-year-old. never got to. the port as a three-year-old, and Pebbles and Comely were comparative failures. This year Pebbles has never started and Comely did not even equal her three-year-old form. Rut Mr. Rutler was luckier than last year in developing one good three-year-old in fact, a great three-year-old. the bay colt Spur, by King James Auntie Mum. being a deserving claimant for the championship of his age. As a two-year-old Spur had been excelled in winnings by Paddy Whack, hut the hitter has won but a single race as a three-year-old. Spur, starting twenty-one times, has been unplaced but once, and has won almost as much as the entire stable won last year. The four-year-old filly, Capra. by Rallot Cap and I.ells. after having been outshone by her stable mates both as a two-year-old and three-year-old. proved to be the second best winner in the Rutler barn this year. The record of the stable for 1915 follows, it ranking fifth in winnings among American stables: Horse. Col. and Sex. A. Pedigree. 1st. 2d. 3d. Won.
