SANFORDS LATE PURCHASE Master of Hurricana Stud Pleased vith Paragon, Which May Race Next Fall. John Sanford, owner of the noted Hurricana Stud Farm at Amsterdam, N. Y., and one of the countrys leading breeders and turfmen, who recently returned home after an extended stay abroad, is indeed pleased over his purchase of Paragon, the son of Iiadium, which may be raced next fall before being retired to the stud. Paragon is the winner of the City and Suburban Handicap of this year and should make a desirable acquisition to Hurricana Stud. Paragon is now at Saratoga with the other Sanford horses in charge of trainer Hollie Hughes. Ho was galloped over the main course yesterday and showed fine speed. "I had a most enjoyable visit in England," said Mr. Sanford a few days after his return. "I was favorably impressed by the only innovation that I saw on the English race trades and this innovation was the adoption of the numbers placed on the saddlecloths of the horses in the races, the same as we have in this country. The patrons of racing received the innovavtion most favorably and there was much comment in the press and in racing circles and all most favorable about it. The only unpleasantness that I encountered in connection with racing in England was the weather. There was rain each and every day throughout the Ascot meeting."
