PARSONS HORSES SELL CHEAPLY Sixteen Head Disposed of for 4,750 Late Oscar Lewisohn Horses Bring .Fair Prices. New York. December 15. The sale of the three-year-old filly Koh-i-Noor and fifteen yearlings, the property of the late Schuyler L. Parsons, was held at Durlands Friday night and the entire consignment realized 4,750, an average of nearly ,550 per head. The yearlings failed to bring as high a price as the late steward of the Jockey Club paid for them earlier in the year. Seven head, the property of the late Oscar Lewisohn, were also disposed of for a total of 9,100, an average of ,728. The high-class filly Clematis II., was the star of the sale, being knocked down to J. Vendig for ,100. Vendig bought the filly for" a friend, who intends to gather together a good racing stable .for a campaign over the metropolitan tracks next year. But for the fact that Jesse und Fred Lewisohn, brothers of the deceased turfman, took an active part in .the bidding, the Lewisohn horses would have gone at a much lower figure. R. F. Carman paid ,200 for the foreign-bred yearling Pibrodi, by Macdonald II. Melody, which was the top price for the Parsons youngsters. W. R. Coe secured the Sweep Yodler yearling at ,000. The filly Koh-i-Noor was knocked down to E. Arlington for ,800. Nearly every prominent eastern turfman or his representative was present at the sale and it was the general opinion that the Parsons horses sold cheaply.
