4. 4. LORD BRIGHTON, FLAGS AND PURCHASE THE STARS OF THE BRIGHTON STABLE LN LAST YEARS RACING CAMPAIGN , i The Brighton Stable, under which name George Smith races his horses, fared well in the campaign of 191S. In Lord Brighton it possessed one of the front-rank two-year-olds of the year, a stakes winner and a fleet and resolute runner which will have to be counted in when taking stock of the three-year-olds of 1919. It was a stroke of luck when the stablf acquired possession of "Flags, this young gelding proving himself a great sprinter and the stables second best money earner. It also had. two capital two-year-olds in Purchase and Toto; in fact. Purchase was reported to be much superior to Lord Brighton, but did not show it in public racing, whatever he may have done in private. Some people who know much about the ways and capacities of horses believe he will prove himself a great three-year-old in the racing of 1919 and no one would object to seeing a grandson of the mighty Ormonde in that role. The Brighton Stable horses were sold in September and Lord Brighton and Purchase were bought bv Samuel C. Hildreth. The record of the stable was: Horse. Col. and Sex. A. Pedigree. 1st. 2d. 3d. Won.
