Success of the Von Tromp Matrons Promises to Make Them Tremendously Popular Willi tlio Bidders. NEW YORK, N. Y.. Jan. 20. New York horsemen aro taking a "lively interest in the dispersal salo of tho Edward Cebrian thoroughbreds to be held at the Lexington farm Tuesday. Already several parties have j been made up for the trip to Lexington to attend the sale, and one will be conducted by Roy Carruthers. In the Carruthers party will be, John Hertz, the Chicago sportsman and breeder, who is contemplating several purchases. C. R. Flaischmann is another who will make the trip to Kentucky, and E. R. Vickerman will also be on hand. The trip to Lexington need no longer be dreaded, for it is possible to leave New York Monday morning, arri-e in Lexington in ample time for the sale Tuesday, and, leav-: ing after the sale, be back In New York Wednesday. This is the schedule of several of the New Yorkers who will make the trip next week. While considerable has already been told of just what will be offered at the Cebrian sale, there is one attraction for many that has not been exploited. That is the number of Von Tromp mares that will go under the hammer. The Von Tromp mares have already proven tremendously successful ma- trons, and there are ten, the produce of that good son of Ben Brush, in the Cebrian catalog. Four out of live first foals of Mr. Cebrians Von Tromp matrons are winners. SUCCESS FROM START. Mr. Cebrian went about bloodstock production in an intelligent way. A thorough student of blood lines, he sought the best strains of both continents. The fact that he was tenth on the list of successful breeders last year is proof of the intelligence he brought to an activity which he hopes to resume at the conclusion of his contract in California. The purchase of Troutbeck, a beautifully bred imported son of the Derby and Two Thousand Guineas winner Ladas as the lead-: ing sire of his establishment, which had been dominated previously by the American horse Von Tromp, by Ben Brush, whose dam, imported Cinderella, by Hermit, had given the turf and breeding stud the noted horse Peter Pan, helped materially in the formation of a stud whose dispersal is to be regretted. Mr. Cebrians loss, however, will be the gain of the breeders of the country. Continued on eighth page. ! ! ; 1 1 , , , 1 I ; , 1 CEBRIAN SALE INTEREST Continued from first page. Mr. Cebrian was the heaviest buyer at the Macomber sale, flaying ?9,500 for Scramble, a beautiful daughter of Le Melior and the American dam Tangle, by Meddler. She and her filly by rtire-aux-Larmes are in the consignment to be offered at Lexington cn January 22. Most of the French mares were with foal by Ilollister, McKinley, Sea Sick and "War Cloud. Their produce v.-ill be sold at the same time as the marcs, the majority of which have been bred to Troutbcck and are believed to be with foal by that good horse. Gibbs, by Sea Siclc Gibelinc, by Courlis, is one of these. She is a double Dollar, and her colt in France is said to be the best two-year-old in the Macomber stable. One of the prizes among the French mares is the young dam La Candeur, by Sardanapale. She is inbred to the famous Agnes family and is in foal to Troutbeck. Miss Galatigne, by Rabelais, in foal to Troutbeck, is another. She is a beautifully bred young mare. Sekina, half-sister to the good performer Minto II., is another. Her colt by Ilollister is a fine one. Probably the star of the brood mares, however, is the American-bred Istar, by Von Tromp Ishtar, by Sam Lucas, and the next dam, Isiac, the dam of Hamburg Belle. Isis, the next dam, produced Isidor. Shotovcr, by Hermit, the dam of Isis, won the JSpsom Derby. Istar is only eight years old, but she has to her credit the flying filly Miss Star, the three-year-old Starbeck, by Trout-leck, for which John Lowe has refused 5,-000 ; a two-year-old that V. T. Chinn gave 5,000 for and a yearling filly that is pronounced the best of her age and sex in Kentucky- Istar is a grand individual, and the competition for her will be keen, as she if in foal again to Troutbeck. The sale will be conducted at Keeneland Farm at 1 oclock in the afternoon, and Mr. Cebrian will have a luncheon for the visiting i horsemen spread in an immense tent. The I sale will be conducted by the Kentucky Sales Company, with George Cain on the auction block.
