KING GEORGES POOR SUCCESS Englands King Has Bad Fortune as a Breeder and Owner— His 1920 Youngsters. King 0 ge of England has had a tough time as a racing owner and breeder in contrast to the success of his father of Persimmon, Diamond Jubilee and Minora memory. In 11120 the royal horses won SO. is.", and five races, four minor ones. They have done but little better in late years. The racing stable. F.dgei ton House of Newmarket, and the Sandring bam Stud cost a half million or more yearly to maintain. The produce of both is poor, though there are some noble past-producing mares at Bandringbam. The percentage of noli produce and slipping toals there is high. Friar Marcus, by Cicero Prim Nun. is the studs premier sire in these days. He was a fast hois, oa the turf, but not a stayer. Much hope is held that he will be a father of superior horses. The royal stud has recently added another sire to its inhabitants in Kosoland 19121. by William the Third Electric Rose, by I.esterlin. He is expected to mate well with the rather elderly band "I" Bandringbam matrons. Boat hind was ■ most promising youngster, and his blood is as good as the best in England. He had until lately, been at an obscure farm in Cornwall. The royal stable will have but seven two -year olds the coming season - the entire surviving produce of the Baadrlaghnm Stud.
