STRONG OAK RIDGE STABLE Yearlings Promise to Give Establishment Real Importance. Eight Youngsters Were Purchased for High Prices at Saratoga Remaining Six Aro Homc-IJreds of Good Blood Lines. NEW YORK, N. Y., November 19. When almost 0,000 was spent by the Oak Ridge Stable for yearlings at the Saratoga sales last August it was assured that the popular racing establishment was preparing to take a much more important place on the turf than ever before. With these carefully chosen juveniles there are also six homebred yearlings that will complete the string that will try for tlie two-year-old offerings of 1923. In addition to these, four of the two-year-olds of this year will be kept over in Rune-lise, the daughter of Runnymede and Hymir, and accordingly a sister to Morvich ; Runviso, another that was purchased at the Spreckels sale ; Sakah and Drogheda, as well as the three-year-olds Northcliff and Black Fox. Of course most of the interest in the stable will be in the two-year-old division, for the older horses have not shown enough to be seriously considered as stake candidates. Of the juveniles that were purchased the largest price was paid for a brown son of Peter Pan and Passan, by Hamburg. This one has been named Laurano and he cost Mr. Ryan 5,100 at the sale. Second in importance, as far as price is concerned, is Apprehension, a bay or brown son of Friar Rock and Swan Song, by Ben Brush. This one cost 1,000. Mac OBoy is a bay son of Sweep and Han-rose, by Hanover, that cost 0,100. The others purchased were Faneza, a bay or brown son of McGee and Stolen Moments, by Kingston ; Cano, a chestnut colt by Omar Khayyam Bonnie Tess, by Star Shoot ; Mino, a bay colt by Wrack Lady Godiva, by Hanover ; Plough Boy, a bay or brown colt by Friar Rock Passing Shower, by Or-mondale, and Lucky Strike, a chestnut son of Friar Rock and Danceress, by Ogden.
