KEYSOES HALF-BROTHER IS PROMISING The English autumn racing lias shown up another good two-year-old iu Archaic, Lord Derbys chestnut son of Polynielus Keystone II., a half-brother to the .St. Leger" winner, Keysoe. He was second to Southern and before Poltava iu the Buckeuliam Stakes at Newmarket. Good judges consider Archaic to be Epsom Derby timber and an excellent prospect. Baileys Expert writes of him: "Southern will never beat Archaic? again when both are fit and well. The son of BolyiuelusT-Key.-stone IT. is a superb looking youngster, which seems bound to make more than normal improvement during the winter. At present lie is a mere baby, in addition to which lie lost two or three lengths at the start, in spite of which he would have won in another few strides."
