AMERICANS HOPE OF ENGLISH BREEDERS. 7 In a review of the English flat racing season, Pegasus, -writing for the London News of the 1 World, says: "One cannot help noting the falling 1 off in the winning returns credited to the huge breeding and racing establishment owned by Mr. J. ; B. Joel. If we look back we find that in 1913 s horses bred at the Childwickbury Stud credited their e owner with rather more than 25,000 sovereigns, in 1914 with more than 31,000 sovereigns, while up v t to October 20 of this year, about 1,000 sovereigns r represents the winnings of this powerful stable. 1 Then, by winning the Middle Park Plate, North Star d did to a certain extent improve matters, both by the winning of a semi-classic race and by adding 2,495 sovereigns to the winnings of the stable. Even so, the total of 3,200 sovereigns is a mere nothing v compared with that which we had become accustomed to see placed to its credit year by year. "What I have in mind in alluding to the depreciated account is that it is to a great extent due to t the fact that of late Mr. J. B. Joel has been a Keller, and that very many horses bred from the very best of the strains of blood, which have made t the Childwickbury Stud so famous, have left this c country. To these we have now to add North Star, f so that we shall not be able to see how the winner J. of the Middle Park Plate would have fared in the t classic racing of next year. "This there is about the selling of so many of j the Childwickbury-bred stock, that most of them j have gone to America, from whence, the great .de-nfahd j for the best Of "British-bred brood "stock is coming in the immediate future. Now, the stock f sold from Childwickbury to American owners and breeders is of the best, and will assuredly make its , , mark in the American breeding and racing world. The point being this, to my mind, Mr. J. B. Joel j has gone a long way towards securing the attention of American blood stock buyers the very buyers, I j feel sure, to whom our home breeders will have to look for good prices in the immediate future. The , subject is, I think, worth the notice of other breeders; the more so that vast fortunes are now being , made in America, from which much money will flow into the blood stock market."
