JOHN SAN FORDS GOOD TWO-YEAR-OLDS Amsterdam Turfman to Rely Chiefly on His Young Horses for This Years Racing. NEW YORK, N. Y., February 14. John Sanford. master of Hurrlcana Stud at Amsterdam, N. Y., will rely principally on the two-year-olds in his stable to make a good showing in the racing of the present year. Mr. Sanford has fifteen youngsters quartered at Itelmont Park and they are all considered above tlie average. A dark bay colt named Titanium, by Desmond: Phlilsti.i, by Isinglass, is an exceptionally rangy youngster for one of his inches. He was a grand looking yearling last autumn when Mr. Snnfords youngster were landed at Itelmont Park, but since then he has been growing and developing wonderfully. It is rarely that one sees even a matured nice horse which could equal this youngster in length from ears to heels and, with all this, he is a beaut if illy balanced colt, such as might be looked for from a happy combination of the blood line of St. Simon through Desmond and of Isinglass through Ililllstiu. He has a long, clean, muscular neck gracefully arched, tapered and crested, and extremely oblique shoulders of great range nnd fine thoroughbred quality; well defined and gracefully formed withers whose backward slope reaches to the convex swell of his broad, muscular loin; immensely rangy quarters with high croup and buttocks; deep, massive stifles with well spread points; well sprung and powerfully muscled gaskins; straight, clean legs upon which he stands firmly and squarely, and good-looking feet and-pasterns. Bred as he is, and looking as lie does, this colt should have an excellent chance to grow into a really great race horse. GOOD LOOKING DAUGHTER OF TRANCE. Irish Dream is a bay colt by The Curragh Trance, the speedy stake winning mare favorably known to prescntday racegoers, that will surely attract attention. He is of good size, long and well furnished, of good muscular development. He was bred at Hurricana. Another good-looking colt is the brown colt Jean Bullant, by Ecouen Padue II., by Flying Fox. This colt is a dark brownish bay, or light brown. He is upstanding, well furnished and gracefully outlined. Dominican is a long-bodied and massive chestnut colt of fine size, great substance and compact conformation. He Is a half-brother to that good horse Nominee, lieing by the French sire Predlcateur and from Mr. Nanfords excellent brood mare. Love Apple, by Chuctanunda. This looks like a colt of great power, and one which ought to be up to almost any weight. A strikingly good-looking colt is imported Heather-ton, a big black colt by Major Belmonts great sire, Tracery, the dam being the royally-bred mare Louli, by Flying Fox Fanny, by Isonomy. This is a grand-looking colt, not alone on account of his size and substance, but because of his magnificent conformation. Cordelier is by Rabelais Red Cross, a daughter of Macdonald II. Reine de Naples, by Flying Fox, and is a colt of fine size, range and substance, with every appearance of a stayer and weight carrier. A handsome chestnut colt is Diomedcs, by Voter Fllle do Guerre, by Ajax, and one that looks like n colt with a good turn of speed. Among the fillies Pontypridd is highly considered, being by Llangibby Orange Lady, by William the Third. Rosary is a handsome and well balanced brown filly, by Macdonald II. Monestler. This is a fine sized youngster, distinctively of the Macdonald type, showing abundance of substance, great driving . power and admirable racing conformation. Rervilettn is a Hurricana Farm product, being by a neat and fast looking black filly by Isidor Sadaqudda. Venturesome is a French-bred chestnut filly of fine range and substance, besides being upstanding and stylish in her general makeup. She is by Voter Spumante, by Polymelus. Betsinda, also a Hurricana Farm product, is a beautiful bay filly rather moderate sized, but peculiarly racy looking and highly finished. This is a highly-bred filly, and she should, make a good showing on the turf. She is by Rockton by : Meddler and from the stake winning mare Winning Witch, by Broomstick Sue Smith, by Masctto. Winning Witch was a sister- to that good race horse and stake winner Meridian. Altogether they are as fine a band of young horses to be en anywhere, and hold put the promise of developing iuto racers of merit.
