NAMES FOR COMING TWO-YEAR-OLDS BY F, L. MeKENNEY. WS.YX" "FRANCISCO, "Cal:, - December 15. Names, chosen by Edward Cebrian. .California thoroughbred breeder, for the yearlings he shipped last month to New Orleans have been allowed by the registrar of the Jockey Club. All of the coming two-year-olds are by tlie successful stallion Von Tromp, with the exception of .one by Marse Abe. The master of Mira Monte" Stock Farm gave much care to the naming of tlie youngsters, being of the opinion that i poor name is a heavy handicap to a good horse. Owner Cebrian lias received letters from trainer Al Farrell saying that the band of "babies" sent on the long journey from the stud establishment near San Jose, Santa Clara County, California, to New Orleans, has made even a better impression on horsemen than the fine shipment of last year. The yearlings shipped last year were of uniformly high standard and when the two-year-old racing began in January were frequent winners. Von Tromp. now seventeen years old, has done remarkably well as a sire of winners, taking into consideration the limited opportunities lie has out here, lie is one of the twenty leading sires of the country and more thaji does his part, along witli Sweep and Broomstick, in keeping up tlie reputation of "daddy" Ben Brush. Among Von Tramps progeny winning race track laurels this year are the good sprinters High Cost and American Ace. md the long distance performer Thrift. The owner of Thrift thinks so highly of tlie gelding he has nominated him for next years Suburban Handicap. Unfortunately for Mr. Cebrian, Thrifts breeder, Spinosa, the dam of the gelding, is dead. Eleven Von Tromps in all have earned brackets this year. The names selected for the Cebrian youngsters are: Mammy o Mine. b. f. by Von Tromp Mammy. Lotta Speed, b. f. by Von Tromp Lotta Creed. Lands End. br. f, by Von Tromp Foul Play. Queen of Trumps; blk. f, by Von Tromri Ellen Atkins. Tlie Moor, b. g, by Von Tromp Symphorien Castle. Ed Nance, br. c, by Von Tromp Sain Shot.
