GOSSIP OF GREAT ENGLISH STUDS Tracerys Children of Fine Promise Cox Horses to Bring High Prices Writing of English breeding of the highest class W Allison has this to say in a recent Sportsman The Panther has brought his sire Tracery much into the limelight and so I availed myself of an opportunity this morning to drive out to the Hamilton Stud and see a quite exceptionally good filly foal by Tracery This is a chestnut filly dam Signorinetta which is this season visiting Lemberg and the report of its great merit was by no means exaggerated for I have not seen a better foal this year Foaled April 1 it is little more than a month old but quite as big as many that are a month older and the mare is doing it exceptionally well So far as It is possible to judge a foal I should say that this one has a great future That it should be a chestnut is a little curious as neither of its grandsiros nor graddams were of that color and Signorinettas earlier foals have all been bays or browns even though two were sired by Cicero Her yearling colt by the way is by Sou in Law and I hear a great account of him It may be that the color of the Tracery filly is due to that horses maternal granddam Plaisanteric and again it may come from his grandsire Sain ¬ foin or Rock Sands granddam St Marguerite Then too LEte the dam of Chaleureux the sire of Siguorinctta was a chestnut so there are plenty of ways of accounting for the color and if the foal should develop into a second Plaisnntcrie Lord Rosebcry will have no reason to complain Sig ¬ norinetta herself has improved a great deal since her early days at the stud she seems to have lengthened and become much more like her dam than she used to be She may be the marc to breed a champion to Lcml erg which has developed into a grand stallion and should make a lot of money If he and the late Mr Coxs other horses come up for sale Lord Hosebery has sent him two oilier marcs l csides Signorinetta These are Lammcr muir and SixiKMiny both daughters of Montcm one by Sunstar and the othcr by William the Third Beautiful young mares they are too with excep ¬ tionally good legs and great quality Another notable mare on Lembcrgs list is Gay Launf the dam of Gay Crusader her first foal and Manilardo her second She is only ten years old now and is certainlv as valuable as a brood niare can possibly be beAs As yet nothing is known as to the disposal of tlie late A W Cox stud and stable but if there is to be si sale I think that a syndicate should be found to buy Gay Crusader as it may 1m that no individual capitalist in this country will sec his way to put down sufficient money to secure the son of Bayardo foe himself and in that case Argentine or American buyers might prevail and take the horse away from this country I cannot see that Gay Crusader is likely to make less than 40000 guineas 20rOOO and he might make 50000 guineas 250000 without surprising anyone who is con ¬ versant with stallion values
