JEFFORDS STABLE FOR 1923 Horses Are Now in Winter Quarters at Berlin, Md., Farm. 0 Ilighly-Iircd Yearlings in the Lot Are Expected to Bring the Establishment to More Prominent Place in Racing. NEW YORK, N. Y., December 21. Man o War did more for racing and breeding in this country than has been accomplished by years of successful sport. It was the triumphs of this super horse that brought racing vividly to many who before had scant interest in the sport. It was the wonderful career of the son of Fair Play and Mahubah that induced sportsmen to come to racing and he has had a wonderful effect on breeding. It was Man o War that made a breeder of Samuel D. Riddle, his owner, and induced him to purchase several marcs to send to the court of his remarkable young stallion. It was the same Man o War that gave both Mr. and Mrs. Walter M. Jeffords a new interest in thoroughbred production and they will share in the services to the champion. Then in the Jeffords establishment there is a young stallion of the same age as Man o War which as a yearling was more highly thought of, in Golden Broom, one that cost more than three times as much as the Riddle stallion. From their first entry to the turf both Mr. and Mrs. Jeffords have been enthusiastic in the sport and they have made many a notable purchase. Now with Golden Broom in the stud, and access to such a stallion as Man o War, they are even more enthusiastic in breeding than they have been in racing. Purchases have been made abroad and next year they will show some two-year-olds from mares than were purchased after having been bred abroad. HORSES AT RIDDLE FARM. The Jeffords horses, as well as those of the Samuel D. Riddle string, are wintering at the Riddle farm, at Berlin, Md., and Robert A. Smith has the Jeffords string in his care, while Gwyn Tompkins has the Riddle stable. Smith will have sixteen horses to race for Mr. and Mrs. Jeffords noxt year and of these eleven will be two-year-olds. Three of them are the produce of mares bred abroad and purchased for the purpose of mating with Man o War and Golden Broom. These imported ones are Colette, a daughter of Collar ; Batonoea, a daughter of Roi Hercde and Bathing Girl, by Spearmint. Each of these has a yearling at this time and they will make up important parts of the juvenile string. The mares have also been bred back to either Golden Broom or Man o War, and thus has the Jeffords breeding farm come to a real importance from the beginning. Cyril Taylor has been engaged to ride the Jefford horses, and R. A. Smith will devote his attention exclusively to the string next year. Following is a list of the horses in training : COMING TWO-YEAR-OLDS. Rising Sun, br. e, by Radiant Colette, by Collar. Diogenes, ch. c, by Ballot Smoke Jjamp, by Plaudit. Sam Smith, b. e, by George Smith Nethcrsolc, by Tournament. Cockney, ch. e, by Great Uritain IAvcnlr, by Rabelais. Stormalonpr, ch. s, by Thundererer Mistress Ballot, by Ballot. Pathan, br. g, by Short Grass lilfinburt, by Plaudit. Gemini, eh. g, by Rudolfo Miss May, by Shapfell. Belle Agnes, br. f, by Ambassador IV Agnes Sard, by Sardanapale. Baton, br. f, by Ilainault Batanoea, by Bol Herode. Annette K., b. f, by Ilarry of Ilcrcford Bathing Girl, by Spearmint. Pink and Yellow, b. f, by Broomstick Understudy, by Star Ruby. OLDER HORSES IN STRING. Two Feathers, ch. g, 4, by Superman Proud Duchess, by Watercress. Macduff, ch. g. 3, by McGee Stolen Moments, by Kingston. White Bock, b. g. 2, by McGee Lithia, by In-goldsby. Prince Regent, ch. g, 2, by Spanish Prince II. Understudy, by Star Ruby. Miss Smith, br. f, 2, by George Smith Doria, by Ogden. With such a string it will be surprising if the Jeffords colors are not much more prominent next year than ever before. The horses will be kept at Berlin, where there is every facility for training, until shortly before the opening of the season in the spring, and it is probable the start of the campaign will be made at Havre de Grace or Pimlico.
