The improvement in the bidding at Tattersalls December bloodstock sales at the Park Paddocks Newmarket continued yesterday when desirable offerings were made. Doubleback, a nine-year-old mare by Bachelors Double Will Return, by Springfield, which has been bred to Chaucer, was purchased for 5,000 and is believed to be destined for exportation to the United States. Colonel P. T. Chinn added five more weanling colts to his purchases. The highest price paid yesterday was 0,-000, which went for Maglona, a six-year-old chestnut mare by Fugleman Rayon, by Diamond Jubilee. The mare has been bred to The Tetrarch. Aga Khan was the successful bidder. Mrs. Bendier, a new breeder, acquired Lampetia, the five-year-old daughter of Orby Tzigane, by Laveno, for 7,500. The mare has been bred to Tangiers. Through an error it was made to appear that Edward R. Bradley had purchased Brig of Ayr for ,470 in the report of Wednesdays sales. This mare was purchased by Walter J. Salmon of New York for ,000. Mr. Salmon paid 2,500 for Princess Stirling in the Thursday sales. This mare is a twelve-year-old daughter of Florizel II. and Sterling Balm, by Friars Balsam, and has been bred to Bachelors Double.
