BEN BRUSH, FAMOUS AS A RACER AND SIRE, AMONG THE HORSES THAT DIED DURING 1918 In the list of thoroughbreds which died in 1918 no more distinguished name appears than that of Hen Itrush. He was a high-class- race horse in his younger days and when retired to the stud became one of the most famous and successful sires in the world. It is through him and his lusty sons that the Bramble line of the house of Ronnie Scotland is now dominant in American breeding. His son Broom-stick has been premier American sire three times and now in 1918 another son, Sweep, has gained the same crowning honors. No less noted as a race horse, but not so successful in the stud, although by no means a failure, Bannockburn is another notable name in the mortuary list. In breeding there were other losses of moment in the deaths of the stallions Ivan the Terrible, Cederstrome, Harrigan, Waldo and Knight of the Thistle. Much was expected from the latter horse when he was brought over from England, but in a way he proved a failure. He sired some useful horses, but nothing brilliant in racing. Some noted brood mares also disappeared in death. Ivory Hells, dam of the great race horse Old Rosebud, was one. The English mare Glass Jug, which ran second to the peerless Sceptre in the Epsom Oaks of 1902, was another. Lady Violet, Belmont-.bred and owned and one of the most prolific brood mares on record, being dam of seventeen living and one dead foals, including Lord of the Vale and Watervale, was at the venerable horse age of twenty-eight years when she died. Horses still in racing or recently in racing which expired included Arriet, Chalmers, Chiclet, Ed Howard, Lady Rosebud, Marion Goosby, Montresor, Pan Zareta, Pockiehoo, Red Cross, Sandhill, Shannon River, Solly and Ute, only one star among them, but all horses gifted with speed and of considerable note. The star was the remarkably speedy Texas mare Pan Zareta. No more well-beloved sprinter ever flew around an American nice track than this wonderful creature. Her death seemed a personal bereavement, to her host of admirers. Chiclets breeding was such as seemed to promise great usefulness in the stud and, in that sense, his death was a real loss beyond the ordinary.
