GET OF THE TETRARCH IN OUR RACING Sons and Daughters of Great English Horse Among Nominations to Latonia Championship Stakes. "The first of the prcgeuy of The Tetrareh have started in England ami have made good impressions. This reminds one that that great race horse is well represented in the Latonia Championship Stakes, to be run in the autumn of 1919." says a Kentucky turf writer. "Among those nominated for the rich event is a gray filly, dam Marquetry, entered by 1*. Fitzgerald of Mondelichy. Adare, County Limerick. Ireland. Irish enough to carry the money of all the Sinn Feiners if she goes to the post. Another "lie by The Tetrareh is a bay or brown gelding, dam Wliinstone. owned by Ijidy Conyngham. which was offered for sale last year and which took the combined pleadings of man.v, of Harry Morrisseys f riends to prevent him from bracing subuarlnes to get a look at this one for Henry A. Porter. Two others by this sire were entered by Beard and Dil-Ion of London. Both are gray fillies. Abbazzia being the dam of one and Fragonarda of the other. "Most of the get of The Tetrareh are gray, for a filly called Tetrarchia won at Worcester and she was gray and the London Sportsman, in commenting on this said: At Worcester the Earl of Coventry, who is greatly interested in nomenclature, was asked in the paddock as to the name of Tetrarchia. His lordship replied that the filly was named by W. C. Manning, who unfortunately died last week and that as a Tetrareh was a governor of a province, so Tetrarchia represented the province itself. .Sir Charles Xugent had no exalted idea of the fillys merit, easily though she won. as the race was run. but the mere fact that she was the first representative of her sire on the race course is sufficient to show that her sires merit is reproduced in his stock.* "
