SWA TS RIGHT TO RUN FAST AND FAR DESCENDS FROM GREAT STARS OF THE RACE TRACK AND STUD FARM, WITH ROCK SAND A CLOSE UP AND FAMOUS PROGENITOR , Among the three-year-olds of 1919 below the class of the first flight Sway played a prominent part, both in respect to speed and ability to stay well, and also showed himself to be -a Rood racer in any sort of going. His second to Mad Hatter in the Latonia Championship Stakes was convincing evidence, of his capacity as a stayer, as well as of his superiority to Stockwell, War Spirit, Linden and John O. under equal weights His victory over Under Fire, Manager Waite, Pastoureau and Constantino October S at a mile and three-sixteenths in 1:57 showed what lie could do over a fast track,, mid it was decidedly no mean performance. Sway was only started six times when a two-year-old. winning twice, being second twice and twice unplaced, lenient treatment, which probably had considerable to do with his improved and good form of this year. None of the horses lie beat in his two-year-old victories was of any account in this years racing, so his three-year-old form was vastly superior to that of Ids two-.year.-old days. If all goes well with him he should be a respectable figure in next years racing, if not more than respectable. The more of the average class of Sway Ave have the better racing we have. The great blazing stars of the track are too few in number to serve as more than an occasional attraction, -while, the daily needs of the great sport must be supplied by the more numerous racers of the second class, middle class and those still lower in comparative, rating. Sway is one of the many valuable horses owing existence to the bringing of Rock Sand to our land. No one questions the benefits conferred on onr breeding industries by that great representative of the St. Albans line of Stockwell, the pity being that lie did not abide "with us longer. However, he has left sons and daughters with us .capable of keeping him in fresh remembrance, of which Vulcain is not the least important. On Ids dams side he comes from the noted Belmont "lady" line of brood mares Lady of the Valley, Lady Violet, Lady Rosebery and Lady Blessiifgton, than which there are none better in our Stud Book. Sways dam owes paternity to Star Ruby, a son of the wonderful brood mare Ornament and a half brother to the still more wonderful race, mare Sceptre. Could anything be better, bringing in as it does a commingling of Hampton, Lord Cliftfen, Newminster, Kettledrum, Bend Or, Doncaster and the famous Agnes line of brood mares. Then there is an infusion of Rayon dOr, of Leamington, of Lexington, of. Thonnnnby and of Australian, all of which does not in the least detract from the strength and interest of the following pedigree: 2 J Springfield ..;..l2 J St .-Albans 2 E chestnut, 18S7 .
