f J i a t a i r j c E , f j i i j 1 1 : i . I I j A. B. HANCOCK YEARLINGS 1 Justifiably Proud of Five Young- sters He Recently Imported From England. BY T. B. CROMWELL. LEXINGTON, Ky., October 31. The five j1 yearlings that Arthur B. HancocK nought in j1 England at the Doncaster September sales c were brought from New York by Johnny j Miller and turned over to Bay Paul, who now is in charge of them at "Jack" Bakers stable a at the Kentucky Association course, where the writer, upon Mr. Hancocks invitation c and with him, had the pleasure of seeing them. y Mr. Hancock is justifiably proud of these r youngsters because tney are of splendid individuality and good breeding, such as to . reflect much credit for his judgment in so- lecting and because they arrived in good 1 condition, except that the Parakeet colt was I showing some temperature and had the as- 1 sistance of Dr. Edward Hagyard, who stated 1 that the colt is out of danger of any dis- A dressing complication. It is doubtful if there is in this country and that is taking in a lot of territory, hav- ing in mind the many that passed under j ! the hammer at Saratoga for good prices a better colt than is the son of Friar Marcus 1 and Paloma, by Cyllene. He is a strongly. made bay with black points and without a hair of white about him. He is the picture of sturdiness and vigor, correctly made as to proportions, with a true way of walking, 1 and altogether carriage and action and manner that betokens more than ordinary in- j : telligence and courage. In a word, he im- presses one that he will race fast and far and become a worthy stock horse. 1 RUED IX IltELAXD. This colt was bred in County Dublin, Ire- 1 land, by A. N. Reynolds. His sire, Friar Marcus, is by Cicero, son of Cyllene, from 1 Prim Nun, by Persimmon, and his dam, Paloma, as stated above, is by Cyllene; the second dam being Clay Pigeon, dam of four j I winners, by Common. The next four dams j j Flyaway, by Galopin; Rookery, by Hampton; j Hippodrome, by Oxford, and Hippodamia. by ! ; Pelion were winners and produced from j j three to eleven winners each. This colt, line i j bred to Bend Or, carries three crosses of i j Doncaster, three of Isonomy, three of Hamp- j ton, two of Galopin and two of Hermit in j the first five crosses. Friar Marcus was the unbeaten winner of five races as a two-year-old. His first runners were in 1921 as two-year-olds, when he had six winners of nine races, and to the middle of August this year he had out nine winners of eleven races, since which time Maurdina, by him, has won the Buckingham Stakes of 14,000 and another of his get, a colt owned by Marshall Field, won the Clearwell Stakes and was disqualified. The veteran Bay Paul said of this colt: ! ; "I think this is as good a yearling as I have j ! ever seen and I trained both Hindoo and i Miss Woodford." He knew nothing of his i pedigree when he made this comment. He j did not know that the colts dam was a winner and that he is half-brother to the winners Reflection and Palomides. RELATIVE OF CLEOPATRA. A nicely-made, good-boned, strong colt, with lots of room to carry his dinner; good head, neck, back, shoulder, quarters, legs and feet, is the chestnut colt by Corcyra sire of Cleopatra, so well and favorably known over here, from Santois Sweetheart, by Santoi; she from Sweet Kisses a winner and dam of Halo Shaw, Love Note and other winners, by Best Man, sire of Stolen Kiss, a winner of 5,000 in stakes and dam of Somme Kiss; next dam Strathbrock, she from Poinsettia, daughter of Lady Hawthorn, sister to Thormanby.
