FORTUNATE TRANSACTION FOR LORD DERBY At the Newmarket December sales in 1894 the Hon. George Lambton, for Lord Derby, bought the five-year-old bay mare Broad Corrie for ,250 and it was indeed a fortunate transaction for Lord Derby, for whom the mares descendants must have won about forty times her original cost. She was by Hampton from Corrie Roy, winner of the Cesarewitch, two and one-quarter miles ; Alexandra Plate, Ascot and other long-distance races. As Broad Corrie herself was a winner of six races and over 7,000 in stakes she was an obvious bargain. She had been successful in races over eight and nine furlongs and did beat a solitary opponent over two miles. After a couple of wasted seasons she slipped twins in 1897 Broad Corrie bred Glasalt in 189S. She was by Isinglass. Gla-salt herself won the Liverpool Cup and other ! j races, value justunder ,000 in stakes. With j two exceptions, fillies by Melange and Wil- i liam the Third, all the produce of Glasalt i j were successful on the turf, and they won j 6,700. Glasalts last foal was Canyon, j which, in 1916, won the One Thousand j Guineas by three-quarters of a length from j j Fifinella. The latter subsequently carried , off the Derby and the Oaks. Galois was a i fine stayer, winning the Chester Cup, two I ! and one-quarter miles, and running third j in the Cesarewitch, two and one-quarter i j miles, conceding the first and second, which i were the same age, fifteen pounds and eleven j pounds respectively. Another son was King William. He won ! the Dewhurst Plate, in which he beat Prince j Palatine, to which, next season, he was a j I I bad third in the St. Leger. He is siring a lot of fair performers. Lord Derby has three descendants of Broad Corrie in his stud and Crevasse, the winner of last years Liverpool Cup, has now joined them. Glacier had previously bred Glaciale, by Polymelus, which, carrying second colors, was placed third in the One Thousand Guineas. She was deficient in courage, a failing which seems to affect a few of the representatives of this family.
