NAMES FOR C0RRIGAN YEARLINGS Appropriate Nomenclatures Bestowed on Choice Band of Young Racers hy Mrs. Corrigan. Louisville, Ky., December 15. r.T. W. Corrigan, the Cleveland steel manufacturer and turfman, has just announced the names selected for his band of twenty-eight coming two-year-olds, now in winter quarters at Churchill Downs, and it is an open secret that they were selected by Mrs. Corrigan, to whose happy inspiration the American turf is indebted for a quite exceptionally appropriate nomenclature. Mrs. Corrigan has been careful, so far as possible, to indicate pedigree in these names, and to combine the titles of the sire and dam. This is always a desirable, but difficult feat. Her success is quite remarkable. How much better to permit a colts name to be a guide book, than to start it on its career carying the name of Tom, Dick or Harry, a compliment to a friend, but meaning nothing to the outsider. Some of the striking examnles of Mrs. Corrigans unique achievement are seen in names like Keen Jane, Hidden Jewel. Circus Banner. Grafted Rose, High Time, AVar Club, Feather Wit. High Cloud, Indian Desert, To Arms and Uoyal Dagger. Keen Jane is by Javelin Plain Jane; Hidden Jewel by Disguise--Rubiu Granda, Circus Banner by Hippodrome! Banorella, High Time by Ultimus Noon Day; Feather Wit by Colin Cap and Bells, and so on down the line. The full list is made up of the following: By the Stars, b. c, by Colin Divination. Circus Banner, ch. f, by Hippodrome Banorella half-sister to Royal Ensign. Cover Up. blk. f, by Disguise Costume. Feather Wit, blk. c, by Colin Cap and Bells. Fleeing Sheik, b. c, by Delhi Runaway Girl. Grafted Rose, b. f, by Fitzgraf ton Collar of Roses. Half Mask, b. f, by Hurst Park Domino Noire. Hidden Jewel, b. f, by Disguise Bubia Granda half brother to Ultima Thule. High Born Lady, eh. f, by The White Knight-Lady Echline. High Cloud, br. c, by Ultimus Umbra. High Fly, blk. f, by Ultimus Midge sister to Luke McLuke. High Time, blk. c, by Ultimus Noon Day half-brother to High Noon. Hip Hip Hooray, b. c, by Hippodrome -Dreaming.

Xenida, br. f, by Durbar Xenil. It will be noticed from this list that the youngsters are a royally-bred band, most of them claiming kinship to. horses whose names loom large in the history of American racing. Several are of distinguished English parentage. They have all been broken and tried out, with results highly gratifying to trainer John Whalen. It would not be surprising were a blazing star of the turf developed from their number during the forthcoming season.
