PREPARING FOR NEXT YEARS RACING Owner G. W. Beardmore Adds Five Head to String Stanhope II, Bead Canadian Gossip. TORONTO, Ont., September 2. That local horsemen have confidence in the resumption of racing in Canada is evidenced by the preparations being made for next year. George W. Beardmore who last spring Avon the Kings Plate with Ladder of Light, has added five head to his string, which he. purchased from Mrs. L. A. Livingston. They arrived at Woodbine Park last Friday from Pontiac Farm, Cobourg, Ont. The quintet are in charge of trainer Joseph Donne, and although yet unbroken, they will be pointed for the Plate and other events for Canadian-bred horses next season. Four three-year-olds and one two-year-old make up the string, their names and breeding as follows: Almighty Dollar, b. g, 3, by Bowling Brook Athlene. Apple of Sodom, b. f, 3, by Stanhope II. Ada-line M. Lively Sleeper, br. f, 3, by Stanhope II. Adele Harding! Silver Dawn, b. f, 3, by Stanhope II. Scotch Mist. Wandering Wood, b. f, 2, by Kingship Present Arms. Recently Mrs. Livingston sold to Harry V. Colt, of Geneseo, K. Y., five two-year-olds and six three-year-olds, which cleans out the older division of her Canadian-bred string. The ten yearlings still at Pontiac-Farm will all be shipped to trainer Doane in the near future by Mrs. Livingston, to be broken at Woodbine. It is possible that Mr. Beardmore may also purchase this band of juveniles, many of which are fashionably bred. Following are their pedigrees: Bay filly, by Stanhope II. Hebe. CliestattrflliyrTffTOlTr " Chestnut filly, by Galatine Mary Bud. Bay filly, by Kingship Present Arms. Bay gelding, by Stanhope II. Kermess, brother to Kama. Bay gelding, by Stanhope II. Simlah. Bay filly, by Stanhope II. Flagging Spirit. Brown filly, by Stanhope II. Missing Link, a sister to Ladder of Light. Bay filly, by Kingship Adeline M. Bay filly, by Stanhope II. Athlene. ONE OF CANADAS MOST SUCCESSFUL SIRES. The latter youngster is now an orphan, iter dam died shortly after foaling, and Stanhope II. was destroyed last week. He was twenty-two years old and had hot only become mean, but had outlived his usefulness as a sire. Although this good son of Florizel II. never raced, he was one of the most successful sires that ever stood in Canada aiul sent many winners to the post. His most recent triumph was marked by the victory of . Ladder of Light in this years Kings Plate. Tartarean was another Plate winner sired by Stanhope II. Kama and Kingly are other sons of the famous sire to earn fame, among the latters many victories being the ,000 Toronto Clip at Woodbine. Stanhope II. stood seventeen high and when in condition weighed 1,350 pounds. Kingship is now the only sire remaining at Pontiac Farm, and of the sixteen mares there five of them have foals by the son of Ildrim. With the shipment from Pontiac Farm came Mr. L. Davies Impress, which has been mated with Kingship. Trainer John Walker has purchased from the Thorncliffo Stable the three-year-old Bugle March. He is at Woodbine Park, and it is Mr. Walkers intention to educate him for steeplechase racing. Another prospect for cross-country racing being schooled at that course is Charles Crews Pepper Sauce. He is in charge of ex-steeplechase jockey Eddie Kelly and is taking to jumping in promising style. With no immediate prospect of racing here this year, T. Maher has decided to turn out the three-year-old Plymouth Rock, by Rockyille, and tlie two-year-old Gallant Tfroom," by Galatine Bride Lane. Both have been in training at Woodbine all season and have worked well. Trainer John Graver is likely to ship Goblet and "Uncle John to Kentucky for a fall campaign. Both have been rested up here during the summer, but are now in active training again. Word reached here from Saratoga that George Simons Mandarin has gone wrong, as has also the Canadian-bred Master- Fox.
