. i i j ! , , ENGLISH RACERS EXPORTED Consignments for Hancock, Sanford and Choate Leave for This Country. LONDON. England. June 28. After an interval or just about six months, shipment of horses is once more possible to the Inited States. There are still one or two small areas in England which are scheduled as having foot and mouth disease. These farms are hundreds of miles away from the districts where horses are bred or raced. In the circumstances the American department of agriculture gave permission for shipments of thoroughbred horses, provided that the fodder and the bedding on board the steamer was produced in America. Directly permission was accorded, the Atlantic Transport Company cabled to America for a supply of fodder and bedding to be sent on the first steamer. This arrived in time for a number of horses to be shipped on the Menominee, from Tilbury docks, June 25. There are about twenty horses on board in charge of horseman James. Of these twelve only are thoroughbreds. The others are high-class hunters and polo ponies. Last December, when Archaic was shipped, Mr. John Sanford sent over all ins yearlings, with the exception of five, which were in England and three which were in France. These are in the shipment on the Menominee. Arthur B. Hancocks well-bred rilare Embassy, which is so closely related to Craig an Eran and Buchan, is also on the same steamer. She is in foal to Aolta. Two mares and a foal were shipped for account of Joseph Choate. All the animals are consigned to Dr. McCully. The Michigan is scheduled to leave Tilbury docks about July 9. She will bring back the American national polo ponies, as well as any other thoroughbreds which may be bought at the Newmarket July sales. Here are the details about the thoroughbreds on I lie Menominee. FOR ARTHUR B. HANCOCK.
