LILLIAN SHA W IN THE FUTURE ANCESTRAL LINES ON BOTH SIDES. , S UCH iAS . TO PROMISE GREAT EMINENCE IN TIME , IN TEE ROLE OF A BROOD MARE By EXILE Not one of this years crop of three-year-old fillies has: anything like equal- racing merit lo that displayed by the best of the colts. Lillian Shaw, Milkmaid "and Yexiitldus-are the best of the supposedly gentler sex. Vexatious, in receipt of twelve pounds, beat Milkmaid for the Alabama, and Lillian Shaw, ?t evens, beat her for the Kentucky Oaks. Why not Lillian Shaw the best three-year-old filly of 1919? The suicidal policy of racing Lillian Shaw against old ones in June was pursued, rosulting in her discomfiture and perhaps permanent retirement from racing. Lillian Shaw is a chestnut of none too attractive appearance bufe a-good,-strong; sturdy rort, Which could only manage to win once in her first season on the turfj buttowaroVthe end of the year ran second to King Plaudit, beating Duchess Lace in their placings, and wound up by running second to Over There. For an opener Lillian Shaw as a three-year-old took her part in a three-quarters dash during the Lexington spring meeting, finishing one-half length in front of Relago and Legotal. Standing alongside her owner, Mr. Livingston, my remark was : "You have the Oaks in your pocket," not then dreaming that Milkmaid was to be on hand for, that race. Injudiciously ridden, Regalo and Delico beat Lillian for the Ashland Oaks, but after this, for a time, it was r:ll plain sailing. Twice did Lillian Shaw win over the one mile route, , at Churchill Downs, and next came her success in the Kentucky Oaks, in which, she beat somewhat easily that gobd iiJly Milkmaid and Dancing Spray, Regalo no place. So after all my Lexington prediction proved correct. Following this the inexplicable policy of sending the Oaks "winner against the old ones was indulged in, with what result we know. Horses are not machines; and fillies dont beat old ones in June, whatever they may do in September. Lilliaa Shaw is a daughter of my dear friend Fair Play, big horse in this or any other country, and about as good as he looks, too, both as a. race horseJand a sire, and I have not the slightest doubt that his daughters will prove to be exceptionally good brood mares, for the blood and the speed are there. They cannot fail, and some day you t will live to read about some son or daughter of the Oaks winner of this year winning one. of the best races run for on the North American continent. This is made additionally certain because of the fact that Early Love, dam of Lillian Shaw, is-by that good broodjmare sire King iEric, a descendant in the male line of King Tom, which got among others St. Angela, dam of St. Simon. King Erics dam, Cyclone, is by the Herod horse Parmesan, winner of-a Great Metropolitan and an Ascot Geld Vase, and sire of Cremorne and Favonius. Early Love, also dam ot that consistent winner Warsaw, is a daughter of May .Bee III., by Casino, a really well-bred j-on of Macaroon, by Macaroni, dam Castagnette, by Marsyas. Eritriclay, , third dam of Lillian Shaw, is by Enquirer, sire of Dominos dam, Mannie Gray, and this., the Minnie Mc branch of the Galopade-Dance family. W Talk about accumulated evidence, here is an accumulation of good brood mare blood rarely to be found in any mares pedigree, and what with her strains of Australian; King Tom twice, Lexington twice, Bend Or with his Thormanby, Galopin, Macaroni twice, once through Galliard and again through Macaroon, Parmesan and Wild Dayrell, it would appear that failure for Lillian Shaw as a brood mare is next thing to impossible.
