TRYSTER BOUGHT FOR STUD Eastman and Fitz-Gerald Acquire Son of Peter Pan. Great Racer and "Winner of Over 00,000 "Will Be Raced This Year and Then Go Into Retirement. Scott Harlan has sold the six-year-old black horse Tryster, by Peter Pan Tryst, by the Derby and Guineas winner St. Amant, to Robert M. Eastman of Chicago and C. J. Fitz Gerald of New Tork, who will send the horse to the stud next year. Tryster is the winner of over 00,000 and was unbeaten as a two-year-old. His best race that year was for the Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes at a mile, in which he beat some high class racers including Grey Lag, running the distance in 1:38 and finishing with speed in reserve. As a four-year-old he was. sold to J. L. Replogle for 0,000. He won several good races in the colors of that sportsman and created a record that will stand for some time, by winning the three serial weight-for-age races at Pimlico, three-quarters, one mile and a mile and an eighth, defeating Mad Hatter, Little Chief, Paragon II., On Watch, Careful and other good ones. Last year Tryster won the Empire City Handicap at a mile and a quarter and Scott Harlan has maintained that this distance is not beyond the powers of the horse when specially prepared for it. The success in the stud of "Voter, Sundridge and other fast horses whose favorite distance .was a mile has made many breeders favor a horse of great speed rather than a stayer to get Avin-ners of our present day big prizes for two-year-olds. As neither of the new owners of Tryster engage in racing Mr. Eastman being a breeder with a small stud in Maine the horse will be leased for the coming campaign. Tryster is perfectly sound and look3 a? if he had never taken part in a race. Tryster is bred along lines of proven quality on the race track and in the stud. His sire, Peter Pan, was Commandos best son. St. Amant was noted for his staying qualities. The second dam, by Hamburg, gives a double infusion of the blood of Mannie Grey, while the third dam Mineola, by Meddler, produced the great horse Johren. The fourth dam Hurley Burley is the dam of Burgomaster, pronounced by J. W. Rogers as being the best three-year-old he ever trained. Tryster will probably be in the hands of Miss Elizabeth Daingerfield after the close of the coming campaign. The following is Trysters record to date: Tryster, blk. h. 1918, by Peter Pan Tryst, by St. Amant. Year. A. Sts. 1st. 2d. 3d. TJnp.
