FUTURITY ENTRY LIST Growth of Our Breeding Industry Reflected in Nominations. H. P. Whitney, Largest Contributor, Names 105 J. E. Madden Second With 82. NEW YORK, N. Y., Jan. 11. The growth of the bloodstock breeding industry in the United States and Canada is illustrated in the entry for the Futurity of 192C. With distant ponts yet to be heard from 171 nominators, representing 21 states and the Dominion of Canada, have made 1.4S2 entries for the Westchester Racing Associations famous two-year-old fixture. Victor Schaumburg, in charge of the office, expects that the total will equal or approach the record of 1,519 received last year. The fact that the Matron Stakes for two-year-old fillies, which closed at the same time as the Futurity, received a total of 18S entries as against 78 last year, is flattering and augurs well for the future of this fixure, which is for fillies exclusively. Because the Futurity closed as late as January 4, there is believed to be fewer barren mares among the entries than would be the case if the fixture had an earlier date of entry. There is always a doubt in such cases early in the season and even the best experts make mistakes at times. It is interesting to note that 191 sires are represented in the Futurity nominations just closed. Several of the mares named for the race arc imported or will be brought over later in foal to English or French horses. The records show that about 900 thoroughbred horses are in service in the United States and Canada. Breeders have therefore exercised discrimination in their bookings which is a good sign for the fixture of the thoroughbred family in this country. The English horses represented include such great stallions as Gay Crusader, Lemberg, Gainsborough. Buchran, Tredennis, Sun Star, Spearmint. Galloper Light, Craig an Eran. Junior, Bachelors Double, Tetratema and Flamboyant. There are also a few by the Argentinian, Grey Fox II., and one by the French sire, Isard II., which was second on the list of winning sires this year, but died a week ago. There are several mares in foal to Mr. Wideners recent importation, Stefan the Great. The benefit of having such blood in the United States must be apparent to all. BREEDERS CO-OPERATE. The patronage accorded the Futurity and Matron Stakes is proof of the readiness of the breeders to cooperate with the Westchester Racing Association. Their generous iesponse cannot fail to be gratifying to the management whose efforts to foster the breeding industry through the offering of a series of tests whose continuity carried the turf through a period of strenuous years. Without such races as the Futurity it is doubtful whether racing would survive the vicissitudes which threatened it between 190S and 1912. That Harry Payne Whitney is the largest breeder of thoroughbreds in this country is accentuated in the returns for the Futurity. His nominations total 105 and comprise his choicest mares bred to Broomstick, Whisk-broom II., Chicle, Johren, Peter Pan, Man o War and Pennant. The Great Inaugural went to Whiskbroom II., Frillery to Man o War and Regret to Johren. John E.
