STAR SHOOT SIRE IN IRELAND. So far as I am aware, there is only one son of Star Shoot at the stud in the l.nited Kingdom, and he- is in Ireland. I refer to .1. Clarkes Captain Re ss, which is tit the Cannon Row Stud. Navaa County Meath, and is a good-looking horse, litis on the Register of the Department of Agriculture, and is in type one excellently fitted for getting hunters and chasers. A good judge who recently saw him tells me that he strikes him us such a good-looking, big -boned, muscular sire that he would be almost certain to win a premium at Islington. Captain Ross was imported into England by Huggins, but is British at every quartering of his pedigree. Star Shoot, it is almost needless to say, is a product of the Eyrefield Lodge Stud, and the dam of Captain Ross is Cushat, by Hermit— Stockdove, by Stockwell, her dam, Beatrice, by Volti-geur. so that the blood could not be better. Also in Ireland is Zadkiel, by Gallinule — Astrology, by Hermit, and he is a three-parts brother to Star Shoot. With two representatives of the same line as the famous American stallion available there is no occasion to lament the departure of the son of Isinglass to the United States. — Dublin Letter to Loudon Sportsman.
