Fred Burlew today sold out his half interest in the two-year-old Mjr-vich to his partner. Benjamin Block, of Wall Street. The terms of the transfer were not made public and neither of the persons would make a statement as to the amount of money involved in the transaction, but reports from a reliable sourw close to the source of such information places the sale of the half interest in the neighborhood of 0,000. Morvich is a son of Runnymcde Hynir, by Dr. Leggo. He was bred in California by Adolph B. Spreekels and brought East in thes prlng by C. W. Carroll to run in his breeders colors. He won a selling race at Jamaica and shortly afterward was sold to Max Hirseh for 85,000. Mr. Burlew bought him from Hirsch for ,000 and parted with the first half interest iri iiim to Mr. Block. Then the B. and B. Stable was formed and Morvich carried the new colors to victories of increasing imprcssiveness as he went along, culminating in his dash to the wire ahead of Mustard Seed at Umpire City earlier in the week. In sir starts he is undefeated. Morvich will run in the colors of Mr. Block aud Mr. Burlew will continue to train him. Because the Runnymede colt was held in light esteem by-his connections early in the spring he was not engaged in any of the stakes on the calendars of the Jamaica, Belmont Park, Aqueduct or Empire City meetings, but will branch out as a stake contender at Saratoga. He is named for the United States Hotel, the Saratoga Special and the Hopcfnl Stakes during the coming August meeting.
