jCEBRIAN SALE INTEREST Several New Yorkers Will Make the Trip to Lexington. Success of the Von Tromp Matrons Promises to Make Them Tremendously Popular With the Bidders. 4 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 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. Fldschmann 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, arrive in Lexington in ample time for the sale Tuesday, and, leaving after the sale, bo back in New York AVednesday. 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 A"on Tromp mares that will go under the hammer. The Von Tromp mares have already proven tremendously successful matrons, and there are ten, the produce of that good son of Ben Brush, in the Cebrian catalog. Four out of five first foals of Mr. Cebrians Von Tromp matrons are winners. SUCCESS FROM START. Mr. Cebrian went aboui 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 Troutbcck, a beautifully bred imported son of the Derby and Two Thousand Guineas winner Ladas as the leading 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 Avhose dispersal is to be regretted. Mr. Cebrians loss, however, will be the gain of the breeders of the country. Continued on eighth page.
