LEADING WjNNERS BREDJN KENTUCKY f Man o Wax, Sir Barton, Mad Hatter and. Others Products of Blue Grass State Breeding Farms. LEXINGTON, Ky.. October 22. While the majority of the rich turf prizes in Kentucky this year were won by eastern owned horses, there is some consolation found in the fact that practically all of them were bred in this state. Man o War as an example among the two-year-olds, and Sir Barton, Be Frank, Billy Kelly and Mad Hatter of the older horses are all products of the Blue Grass. On Watch, the most recent conqueror of the western stars, is another Kentucky-bred, having been foaled in the Kingston Stud of James Corrigan. Kentucky loses nothing of her prestige as a nursery for the blood horse, even though racing stables from this section have this year at least been forced to submit to defeat at the hands of owners of horses from east of the Alleghenies. Mad Hatter, winner of the Latonia Chariipionship Stakes, is distinctly the product of August Belmonts Nursery Stud near Lexington, no fewer than eight individuals among the members of his immediate family having been bred or owned at that famous breeding establishment, something that has probably never before been the case in any stud in this country. His sire. Fair Play, was bred there, as was his dam. Madcap; Hastings was owned during his stud career at the Blue Grass farm. Bock Sand, sire of Madcap, came to the Nursery from England, and founded a tribe from which have come many winners of important events, and in succession came Madge, by Rayon dOr, the former bred and the latter owned there; Lady Margaret, by The 111 Used, both of which lived and died on the Kentucky estate, while La"dy Itosebery, by Kingfisher, ended her days at the same place. Fairy Gold, the dam of Fair Play, also produced while at the Nursery the present premier in the famous stud, as well as Friar Rock, one of the greatest of the many race horses sent forth from its paddocks.
