FAIRY GOLDS DESCENDANTS ABROAD August Belmonts great stud matron Fairy Gold, dam of Fair Play and Friar Rock, was a good brood mare in England before Mr. Belmont bought her and brought her to this country, concerning which London Sportsman said recently: "It is interesting to note that St. Lucre, the dan of Golden Legend, went to France in 1908 Golden Legend was foaled in 1007, and her foals of 1909 and 1910 both won races there at three years. That they were winners is not surprising in view of bt. Lucres breeding, by St. Serf Fairy Gold, by Bend Or .Dame Masham. The latter was by Galliard bringing in a third strain of Blacklock Pauline sister to the brilliant, but eccentric, Peter. Fair Gold, the maternal grandam of Golden Legend, was a good brood mare, and in this country she produced a high-class winner and a good sire in Golden Measure, while when sent to the United States she threw Fair Play to Hastings. Fair Play won the Brooklyn Derby in 1908, and is a successful sire in the States. Only this year six two-year-olds by him accounted for ten races. All this goes to show the value of brood mares of the No. 9 familv, to which Golden Legend belongs."
