" ; THOROUGHBREDS IN NEW YORK SHOW Hunters in Plenty and Five Stallions Among the Many Entries. NEW YORK, N. Y., November 4. Prominence will be given to the thoroughbred, the oldest breed of equine in the world, at the National Horse Show, which will be held in Madison Square Garden from November 17 to 21 for the benefit of the Salvation Army. They will be shown to halter, as saddle horses, as hunters and junipers and as polo mounts. The new class for thoroughbred mares that have produced a foal, to be judged for conformation and quality, however, did not fill. The thoroughbred strain improves every other breed witii which it is crossed and never works deterioration. For that reason first consideration will be given to appearance in the ring and to ability to improving tiie breed of horses for general use. Racing performances will not count. The stallion class has five entries. They are: Mrs. F. J. Van der Becks imported bay, Allumeur, by Sir Meddlar, bred by Clarence H. MacUay i:i France; J. Maey Willets Uncas Chief; Mrs. AV. Austin Wadsworths Uncle George; Harry W. Knights Ellisdale and Oyama, a Commando horse bred by the late James ,R. Keene, entered by Troop K of New York State troops. Uncas Chief, Uncle George and Allumeur are also entered in the class for stallions suitable as the sire of thoroughbred race horses. There are twelve entries in the class for thoroughbred saddle horses, They have pedigrees and are registered in the Stud Book. Scores of other horses which will figure in the ring will be half or three-quarter breds. Among the dozen thoroughbreds nominated are narvey S. Ladews Leading Lady, which was raced last winter in Cuba; Miss Belle W. Baruchs Kershaw; George. H. Chipchases Ben Dah and Miss Janice Liggctts Kitty Quince and Shrovetide. The class for thoroughbred hunters has drawn twenty entries. The- pure blooded stock is readily increasing in favor with American riders to hounds, for no other horse can so well stand the present fast pace across country and fence perfectly up to the last ounce of its endurance. The half-bred and even the three-quarter bred, as soon as they begin to tire, bungle their fences. Licut.-Col. Herbert C. Cox of Ennisclare Farm, Oakville, Canada, has entered five thoroughbred hunters, among them being Indian Arrow, a champion at the recent Rochester horse show. Other nominators are Isaac H. Clothier, Jr., with the Pennsylvania hunter champion, Sir Linsin; Miss Constance Vauclain enters Arblte; Miss Lida Louise Fleitmann, Golden Duck; Thomas J. Regan, Pretender, a bay six-year-old by Hamburg Sallie of Navarre, bred by II. P. Whitney; Charles D. Lanier, Down East, by Yankee Lady Tarantella, bred by John E. Madden and winner of the lightweight hunter championship last year, while Miss Carol Smith of Oakville, Ont., and one of the best riders in the Dominion across country, enters Ondremon.
