LATEST KENTUCKY GOSSIP S. H. Velie Leases Stallion Assagai from V. S. Kilmer Wideners Sweeper II. LEXINGTON, Ky., December 3. Charles IL Berryman, widely known breeder of thoroughbred horses and president of the Tri-State Fair and Racing Association, departed this morning for New York on a mission that may be followed by announcement of general interest to breeders of thoroughbred horses. Col. E. R. Bradley and Mrs. Bradley are at Idle Hour Stock Farm to remain until about the holidays, when they will depart for New Orleans and later go to Palm Beach, Fla., for the winter. S. H. Velie of Kansas City has returned the stallion Mont dOr to J. E. Wideners 1 farm here and has leased Assagai from Willis Sharpe Kilmer. Assagai has been shipped from Binghampton, N. Y., to Kansas 1 City. Mont dOr was tinder lease to Velie for last season only and when Prince K. showed up so well this year Widener raised ; the rental to a figure that Velie did not feel he could meet. Hence the deal for Assagai. Widener has not announced his plans for Mont dOr, but it is understood that he is available for service under a leasing arrangement. Sweeper II. is to be the premier stallion at the Widener farm. W. A. Shea will stand both Tea Caddy and Woodstone, both sons of Rock Sand, in Kentucky this year. Tea Caddy remains at John S. Barbees Glen Helen Stud and Woodstone comes from Maryland to John S. Wiggins Military Stock Farm.
