BONAPARTE A BIG SMASHER While in New York Mr. Cebrian visited the Riviera Stable for the purpose of seeing the yearling colt by Troutbeck Bramble Rose, sister to American Ace, by Von Tromp, which was the top of his sale at Saratoga last August. Fred Taral told him how highly he regards this colt and also made it known that the name Bonaparte has been claimed for him. He is a Napoleon when it comes to speed, he having done a quarter in 22, the first eighth in 11, and having outrun by a neck the Peter Quince Ladys Gauntlet colt, which has been named Peter King. This work by Bonaparte is four-fifths of a second faster than was the quarter at Louisville by John Lowes half brother by Troutbeck also to the excellent filly Miss Star, from Istar, by Von Tromp, at Louisville during the autumn. These two colts and the son of Troutbeck and Apparition, by Sweeper II., which T. P. Hayes says is the best horse he has ever owned, he having done a quarter in 22 over the Lexington track, have given Troutbeck a big boost.
