1 , 1 . : : 1 1 , i TONE TO PIMLICO NURSERY ENTRIESI More High-Priced Yearlings Named Than Ever Before Entered in a Pimlico Spring Stake. BALTIMORE, Md.. March 8. There are more high-priced yearlings in the Pimlico Nursery, one of the Maryland Jockey Clubs juvenile stakes to be decided in the course of the coming Pimlico spring meeting May 1 to 17 than were ever before nomi-, nated to start in a Maryland swing .stake. One is a son of Black Jester Primula, brought to this country from England by Arthur B. Hancock, which, at Saratoga last summer, cost Commander J. K. L. Ross, of Montreal, 4,500; another is a Virginia bred sort of Celt-Ballef Girl, a prodTictof Capt. Philip M. Walkers Page Brook Stud, which cost Commander Ross ,000; another is a son of Thrush Silent Queen, imported by Mr. Hancock, which cost the Montreal turfman ,500; another is a son of Tracery Royal Coinage, bred in England by Major August Belmont, for which John E. Madden paid 3,000; another is a son of Celt Network, bred by Mr. Hancock in Virginia, for which James W. McClelland, the owner of Eternal and The Wanderer, paid 0,000. The top-priced youngster of last summers Saratoga sales does not happen to have been named for the Pimlico Nursery, but he is pretty sure to be nominated for the Spring Juvenile, a ,500 race for two-year-olds at four and a half furlongs, which will close on April 3. This youngster. Golden Broom, a son of Sweeper, and the Hamburg mare Zuna is one of a string of exceptionally precocious two-year-olds Michael Daly is developing for Mrs. Walter M. Jeffords, of Philadelphia, at Glen Riddle Farm in Worcester County, Maryland. Reports from Glen Riddle indicate that Golden Broom is coining on handsomely. Mrs. Herman B. Duryea bred Golden Broom, which is a half-brother to Red Sox, in France, and the Sweeper colt cost Mrs. Jeffords 5,000 at the Duryea sale. Joseph E. Widener, another Philadelnhian, was the contending bidder. Golden Broom is a chestnut with quite a lot of white about him. but he is bulky, big-boned and uniformly developed. He could run like the wind when Daly tried him out last fall. The horses of the stable of Mr. and Mrs. Jeffords have been galloping in the open all winter and they will do their first racing at Havre dc Grace. They will all lie ready for the colors by the middle of April and they should, barring accident, race to midseason form at Pimlico in May. There will be few, if any, backward racers in Maryland this spring. DARK HORSE IK BOSS STABLE. That all the high-priced youngsters named for the Pimlico Nursery will be put in the Spring Juvenile is a foregone conclusion. And with the Black Jester colt, the Celt colt, which is a half-brother of The Porter, and the Thrush colt, Commander Ross will name an equally promising youngster called Trench Mortar, a son of Flint Rock Topiary, which he got for the modest sum of 00. Tiie Ross two-year-olds, which wintered at Laurel Park, are speeding up fast for Maryland spring racing, and H. G. Bedwell has an idea that tills Trench Mortar will do as well as his high-priced stable companions. Why Treneh Mortar brought no more than was one of the mysteries of the Saratoga sales. Besides being a good looker, he is a half-brother of Trap Rock, also of Tracery, a Rock Sand stuj-hon like Flint Rock, which Major August Belmont refused to sell in 1913 for a reported price of 00,- The Celt Network colt, brother of Embroidery and Paddy Whack, and half-brother of Late and Workniaid, the last named the dam of Dunboyne, is at Hot Springs. He will come back to Pimlico in May with Eternal and The Wanderer, which, Mr. McClelland has announced, are to start In the Preakness after they shall have tried their luck in the Kentucky Derby. With them will come a raft of promising youngsters Mr. McClelland bought privately last summer. One of these private pur- chases is a sou of Sweep Gold Ten, hence a half- brother of Ten Point, a Walden Stakes winner. One is ji son of Sweep Ethel Pace, accordinglv a half-brother of Alfred Noble and Housemaid. An- other is a sou of Marathon Glena, and a half- brother of Billy Kelly. 110 less. These youngsters will race in Maryland in the spring, and they, with two score or more promising two-year-olds of the stables of John E. Madden, Capt. Ral Parr, George Wingfield, J. B. Klwell. Richard F. Carman. Thomas Clyde, Major Robert L. Gerry, Willis Sharpe Kilmer. Samuel Ross, John Sanford. J. II. Rosseter. George D. Widener, Harrv Payne Whitney. Joseph E. Widener. Capt. Philip M. Walker, Edward V. Whitney, Gifford A. Coch- ran, Richard T. Wilson. Robert Walden. Alfred Hennen Morris. Cornelius M. Garrison, etc., will give Maryland better two-year-old racing this spring than the Old Line State has ever had in the past. - 5 - ; 1 , ; - ; : . , , . r , 1 , , ; I ; ! : , ; - 1 J 1 1 1 11 i J A 1 c i 1
