TROUTBECK IS NOW AN AMERICAN THE ST. LEGER WINNER OF 1906 BOUGHT BY EDWARD CEBRIAN AND TO STAND ALONG WITH VON TROMP IN KENTUCKY, TO WHERE THE CEBRIAN STUD IS TO BE TRANSFERRED By F, L. McKENNEY SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., December 27 Edward Cebrian, the well-known California breeder, has decided, after mature deliberation on all aspects of the horse situation in the United States, that Kentucky is the. place to conduct a thoroughbred stud on a large scale. Accordingly he made arrangements, today for the shipment to the Blue Grass State of the stallion Von Tromp and about a score of brood mares that have been quartered for some years at the Mira Monte Stock Farm, Santa Clara County. Von Tromp has been uniformly successful as a sire ever since going into the stud, although he has had limited opportunities. Mr. Cebrian takes great pride in the prestige of his horse, and it is with the notion of giving the seyentesn-year-old son of Ben Brush and Cinderella the widest possible scope that he has decided on sending the stal-Ucn to Kentucky. Along with Von Tromp Mr. Cebrian plans to have the English stallion Troutbeck on the farm that he has selected for his initial breeding enterprise outside of California. Troutbeck is on the way from England and-js expected to arrive in New York the last day of the year. The stallion was purchased by Mr. Cebrian from E. R. Christenson, who secured him about a yeartago from the Duke of Westminsters stud At the outbreak of the European war in 1914 Troutbeck was bid in by his owner at 0,000. The price paid by Mr. Cebrian has not been made public. " . Troutbeck is sixteen years old, and is best known in America as the sire of The Brook, the champion Jumper. He is a long, low brown, and is said to bear a striking resemblance to Ormonde, "the horse of the century." The stallion is by Ladas Rydal Mount, and is a member of the famous No. 16, the "Agnes family." Troutbeck was a good race horse, being placed in each of his three races as a two-year-old, and as a three-year-old scoring in the St. Leger and eight other-races of. his ten starts of that year. His only defeat as a three-year-old was in jthe EpsomErby, -Spearmint and Picton -.finishing e,,hi:fteirnjKilt e. stayer of stayers by winning long route races as a four-year-oWBve-yeMloeKVas"lre.-iired. "Ladas, sire of Troutbeck, is the well-known son of Hampton and Illuminata, which .on the Derby and Two Thousand Guineas, and is noted as haying sons that do well as sires. Rydal Mount, dam of Troutbeck, is by St. Serf Rydai. Rydal was a sister to Kendal, van- quisher of Ormonde in two private trials, and the sire of Galtee More, Triple Crown winner. .Coming from stayers on both sides, Troutbecks new owner is hopeful the stallion will do even better in the United States than he has in England. Troutbeck could run fast as well as iar, as was shown by the record time in the St. Leger, Sons and daughters won in the last racing season over the Cup route in Italy, England, Ireland, Denmark and other countries.. S.angdon Hills, a Troutbeck, won the Great Metropolitan Handicap recently across the water. Just as soon as the promised return of racing gets a firm hold in this state Mr. Cebrian plans to bring Troutbeck to Mira Monte to head a stud of select mares. He said today he was sanguine the sports permanent revival was not far away. In addition to the names allowed by the Jockey Club for yearlings bred at Mira Monte a. few weeks ago, the following have been allowed: Getem, b. g, by Marse Abe Directa. Hunters Point, b. c, by Von Tromp Zorita. Mazatlan, ch. c, by Von Tromp La Sinaloa. The Cebrian yearlings are at the-Fair Grounds, New Orleans, where they will begin their racing careers in the new year.
