MACOMBER MARES LEAVE CALIFORNIA .Twenty Stud Matrons Sent to New York for Shipment to Trance. P.Y P. L. McKHNNEY. SAN FHANCISCO, Cal., November 2i;. Expansion of the racing interests of A. K. Mncomlier is indicated by the shipment of twenty mares from Charles Hoots Klwood Stock Farm, Milpitas. Santa Clara County, to New York, on the way to France, and four horses in training to be raved on the metropolitan tracks next. year. Two mares now in New York nurt three stallions Hollister. Star Hawk and War Cloud also will be sent over to the Ma-comber stud in France on a steamship leaving December 3. Prospects are that the popular colors of the California sportsman will be carried on race courses in four parts of the world at no distant date. The stable in France is already a formidable one, tlie New York string next year will be strong, and youngsters of the American contingent are eligible for the yreat races of the English turf. Of course Macomber will have horses racing hereabouts just as soon as the s-port is revived here. The four horses sent to New York to be raced there next year are the stallion War Star, by Sunstar Verne, and the yearlings The, Albatross, ch. e, by Uncle Posy; The Hohcmian, br. c, by Jim Gaffney Kittenish, and Sweetest Story, ch. f, by Ballot Love Story. The Albatross and Tlie Dohemian have been nominated for big stakes of the English turf. War Star apparently has recovered completely from his "bow" and promises to make the best handicap horses in tlie country stretch their necks to heat him. Hehas shown frequent milt-s around 1:40 on the course at San Jos.p Santa Clara County, which is by no means a fast track. There are more than fifty mares still on the Doots ranc-h. The twenty mares shipped are: French IIceK b. f, -1, by Sunflower II. Our Girl; bred to War Fame. Kick In. b. m, ", by Huckwheat Money Down; bred to War Star.

War AVitch. b. f. 3. by Spanish Prince Dolly Varden: bred to War Star. The two mares in New York are War Stories, by Spanish Prince Sunglow II., and War Memories, by Sunstar Sweet Lassie. . The mating of the mares at the Elmwood place was a matter of long consideration to the owner. The final selection of suitable mates was made after conferences with Charles Doots, who is in charge of the ranch, and other blood line experts. It is confidently expected the foals to come next spring in Prance will be of the highest worth and able to hold their own when pitted against French horses of stake class. War fame is only three years old and Iiorsemen hereabouts are extremely curious to see what will result from the mating with the fashionably bred mares. The stallion is by Prince Palatine -Verne. Among the mares he served was War Love, a daughter of his own sire. Prince Palatine. The famous Hanover strain is represented by Palo Alto, a son of Hey wood, the latter a son of the mighty son of Hindoo Hourhoii Hell;?. Horgia is a son of the noted Hrutus, a stallion tiiat has shed much luster on California, the nursery of great horses.
