The besl race horse, according la my views of f the eniire So.

I myself saw him run third to Tagalle for the Derby * and remarked to I rather astonished fair one " alongside. "By gad, there goes the wiaaer of the ie St. Loger." Tracery is now the -ire of the Two ." Thoaaaad Guineas winner Tin- Panther, and of this s seasons Middle Park Plate winner Monarch. Sometime thia paal summer Tracery was pare baaed for " a record price for the Argentine, where be is now domiciled. A rare mover, a good bred one. of strength, power and vitality.
