YOUNG WORMLEIGHTONS TO BE SOLD AT AUCTION SARATOGA SPRINGS, N. Y., August ?. One of the recent stallion importations whose progeny will go under the hammer at the Fasig-Tipton sales Wednesday night is Wormleighton, son of Sir Archibald and Bar-carol, represented in the consignment of L. A. and Sanford Lynes Larchmont Stud. These have come to Saratoga with the Carr and Piatt shipment and are a remarkably even band of well made yearlings. Of the ten that are consigned from Larchmont seven are by Wormleighton and though only two of them are colts it is a band of young thoroughbreds that has attracted a great deal of attention since arriving at the sales paddock. Wormleighton has had an instant success as a stock, for with his first crop racing this year he has five winners from seven living foals. He was not retired to the stud until 1919 and his winners racing this year include Newmarket, the colt for which Jefferson Livingston paid a big price and which won at Belmont Park. It is known that Mr. Livingston refused a large sum for the colt after he had bought him. Another Wormleighton is the good filly Bessie Leighton, a frequent winner, as well as Marjorie Wood, Mascotte and Larchmont
