KEEN AEOUT BREEDING THOROUGHBREDS. Wealthy Recruits to the Turf Desire to Race Produce of Their Own Studs. New Tack, March LL". — One of th" significant phases of the great revival of racing in the east, that began when the gates of Belmont Lark. Saratoga. Aqnednct, .Jamaica and Empire City tracks were thrown open in 1913 to the thoroughbred and his votaries after two wasted years, is that the wealthy recruits, who restored the thoroughbi-. d market by stepping into the sale- rings at Lexington and New York and paying prices fir yearlings better than which the breeders of California. Kentucky and Tennessee wore in the habit of get ting in the old flush times, and gave the be ■ ! ing Industry a new and powerful impetus, arc as keen about breeding thcroiighbrods as tiny an about racing them. And one of the meet wholesome developments of this desire of these new ama to breed ti.e runners that, in the fa tare, will bear their silks is that it is bringing ahant ■ rehabilitation of the branding industry in the Atlantic Seaboard state-, whici for fifty yea:- played a poor second fiddle in this respect to the iiie-hanted bluegra.-.s country of Tennessee anil Kentucky. Price McKlnney, who prefers Kentucky, and W. It. Cue, v, iio has a weakness for the Shoshone Valley of Wyoming, in which his mining interests lie-, are the only new men genug in for thoroughbred prodaettoa that have elected to establish their studs elsewhere than in th. east. Establishing Studs in Seaboard States. James Butler. Gifted A. Cochran. Grant Hugh Browne and Willi- nhaipi Kilmer have located their stieis in Ne-w York state; George D. Whtener, Archibald Barklie and Baasael D. Kiddle have ae-mic-ii.d theirs in Pennsylvania: ll. c. HaBeabeek h IS fittcrl out a fine-, new place, which he calls Meado.vbroik. in Monmouth county.

Camden and a score or so of others, rem r,n on the Uwranghbred map. bear in mind. Nor is the Miprcmaey of the bluegrass belt likely to be undermined in the near future- by the activities of three new rathnuia ts. ;:-,it, the nasi K destined, in the future, to oiler iimre formidable competition in yearling production thru it h i - -lie i tin- Civil war. For the- establishments of these new no I do not represent mere than half of whet the Seaboard states can show in the way of thoroiignlired stock farms.
