LORD R0SEBERY LOSES A GREAT MARE. Early this month the noted mare Chelandry. by Coldfhieh- llluniinata died at Lord Rnseberys stud farm. Chelandry was a good mare in her day. and among the races she won was the One Thousand Gaiacaa, she being M only filly in Lord Hoseberys ownership to carry off the race. Strangely enough, it was the only race she wen during that scas-m. She had a successful stud career, the chief of her produce betas Truquair and Neil Cow. the former of which eventually went to Australia. Traipiair will be long remembered for the brilliant p forma nee he put up in the National Breeders Produce Stakes ar Sando.vn Park. There was au old saying that a BStae could give weight away up the Sandown hill, but not a start as well: though Traaaair proved the exception. In the race he srsj left a considerable distance, but when he dd start he set up each a tremendous pace that he was soon among his opponents ami eventually got up in time to beat All Black by a head. Neil Cow won tin- same race with great ease; but in the Imperial Produce Plate at Kenptea in October, he emulated the Madeira example of his half-brother by being left sad pattias in a tremendous effort to win. lie just got home from Snnningdale. to whom he was conceding seventeen pounds, in a lead. Maker rode beth Traeaair and Neil Cow in these rices, and his handling of them undoubtedly contributed greatly to their successes. Tin great battles for supremacy between Nell Cow and l.omberg will be fresh m the minds of all rat* goers, and the race between them in the Kclip-o Slakes fittingly ended the si qu.-iice ill a dead heat.
