Boots new English horse, destined to take Brutus place at the stud, is St. Sym-phorien, bv Muncaster St. Editha, by Kingly Vale. Honolulu, from the stable of H. C. Schulz, captured the all-aged handicap at New Orleans. The track was muddy and Honolulu only had up the feather weight of 95 pounds, winning as his rider pleased. W. C. Whitney is increasing his breeding operations extensively, for at the sales at Newmarket his agent, John Huggins, bought Lord Clonmels mare Regatta, in foal to St. Frusquin, for ,000, and Santa Stella, in foal to Cyllene, for ,000. It is the intention of Mr. Whitneys agent to send the latter mare to America for the Whitney stud in Kentucky. The ownership of the horse Brandy Smash, .racing at New Orleans, is in question. He has been racing there under the name of J. Evans. A person named T. Hagan claims to be the real owner of the horse. He said that he was the one who supplied the money to buy Brandy Smash and that he only agreed to divide the profits with Evans. Brandy Smash has won several purses and Hagan claims that he has not received his share of them. Fred Foster, who for the last three years has trained one of the largest stables in Austria, is expected to visit his old home and Jriends in this country during the winter.
