B. COUSSBLXw I ;.•■:.;:;. England. June 8. — It is gener- I ally agreed thai the beat two-year-old seen I out this season is the beautifully modeled I Duncan Grey, which i:-* owned by the vet Tan I breeder, Sir John Robinson. This gentleman I t:ov about eighty-five years of age. 1 1 can Grey is a gray by Pommern. He I is the first fnal of Sybil Grey, a mare by I Koi H erode, which is the source of Duncan 1 Greys coal color. Sir John Robinson had I this yearling entered ;-i Doncaster with ;•. I reaarve of 2,560. No one would give this I sum. so be put the colt in training with j Basil Jarvia at Newmarket. Duncan Grey ins run twice and won both times in lm- i pre BiVe tvlc. j ilis pedigree is worth examinatioa, because t one has a bit of a shock as a result of l t!;.. Investigation. Sybil Grey is from Rosy c Donovan, by Donovan, from St. Roan, by St, [ Angelo— Autumn Kosl. by Harvester. This I family descends from Bsralade, by Touch- f stone. In all the official pedigree chart rec- j lords one his to go hack very nearly seventy | years to lii d the nam.- of Fncine. ami it j aras quite sixty years before any winner : I note descended from Pacine. She was, of I course, from Bscalade. Other daughters of I ESscalade are the ancestors of horses lik«i [ Hapsburg, Repnlae, Duke of Westminster, I linir Sol and Citadel, Which has no small | Influence on t;;- thoroughbred in the United I Stales. I Duncan Grey, however, lias raised the I Pacine line of Escalade into prominence. I Sybil Grey was also bred bj sir John Robin- I son, wiio leased ht-r io Sir Brneat laar-t. I for vi: m she won a couple of two-year-old I ra-.. s. It is curious to note that the first I race sir v. .. aras the one immediately fol- I lowmg the June Stakes Derby substitute is •war tim , won by Pommern, the sire of I Duncan Grey. Rosy Donovan did not race. Sir John Robinson only owned h--r three years. St. Rosa, the next dam, raced out as a juvenile. None of the mares in this family line is really worth any particular nit nt ion. Duncan Grey, up to now, seems to be a i host in himself, and His subsequent caret r will be watched with a ;xv. al deal of interest. We a!! hope, for the sake of his vei-eran breeder, that be wiii prove a really good colt. Sir John Robinson despite bis | great age was present at ISpsozn to see ».is j colt win the Woodcote Stakes, lie is hoping he ill follow the example of Humorist.
