CATERING TO BREEDERS Propose "Private Barns" for Stables of Thoroughbred Owners. Washington Park Breeders Association Plan Unique Feature for Track at Rivenlale. The Washington Park Breeders Association proposes to seek the co-operation of prominent breeders in building private barns at New Washington Park and with that purpose in view has sent out the following communication : Chicago, November 10, 1922. Colonel Edward R. Bradley, Idle Hour Farm, Lexington, Ky. My dear Mr. Bradley: The New Washington Park Breeders Association is arranging with the leading breeders of the United States and Canada to co-operate in the building of "breeder barns" at our newly proposed track at Riverdale. Particularly is the management anxious to get the ideas of the various breeders, knowing full well that their suggestions are valuable. We are desirous of building "private barns" and our architect, Mr. Scott C. Dyer, has produced plans that we think cover a great many new ideas, yet he requests us to get in communication and ascertain if you will kindly go over the situation carefully and answer our letter. The New Washington Park Breeders Association contemplates erecting a plant at a cost of one and a half million dollars that will be the finest equipped plant in the world. All buildings, clubhouse, paddock, grandstand and barns will be absolutely fireproof and made of steel and reinforced concrete on lines that are entirely individual, yet meeting all requirements. We are not asking any money consideration, as our plans on that line have been taken care of, but by the revival of racing in Illinois, the bringing back of the great American Derby, will no doubt create a mammoth amount of interest and especially among the real horsemen, "the horsemen who are breeders." Therefore we ask your co- Coutlnucd on second paje. CATERING TO BREEDERS Continued from first page. operation and will certainly appreciate your kind answer. Thanking: you, we are yours very truly.
