IMPORTED HORSES SENT TO OWNERS. Wilson Broodmares Shipped to Kentucky — Some Well-Bred Yearlings in Drake-Chinn Lot. New York. January 18. — Hy Wednesday evening practically all of the 110 thoroughbred horses Which maile up the shipment that arrived on the steamship Minnehaha Monday afternoon had been sent to the winter quarters of the various owners to whom they were consigned. Tuesday and Wednesday were busy days for the caretakers of the animals, but fortunately all the preparations for handling the thoroughbreds upon this end of the trip had been carefully made in advance, express cars bStog in readiness, and the animals being subjected to no unneeessary delays after the big boat once docked. Nevertheless, the present severe weather and the distance which some of the animals will have to travel before being safely housed, will, combined with their long ocean voyage, certainly prove a severe test upon their condition, and should the great majority of them come well out of it there will be little cause to feel apprehensive in the future about the danger of importing thoroughbreds to this country. The car in which K. T. Wilsons broodmares were to he shipped was standing on a floathead at the pier head when the Minnehaha docked, and it was an easy matter to transfer them to the train which was to take them to their Kentucky home. Trainer Thomas lleahy and his assistant, John Miller, were on hand, and when the former arrived from Hel-mont Park he found the valuable consignment already oeeapptag stalls in one of the big horse cars of the Adams Express Company.
