TO AMERICAS GREAT PROFIT The steamship Minnehaha arrived at New Tork on January 15, 1917, with one of the largest shipments of thoroughbreds that ever came to this country. On board were nearly one hundred well-bred horses, including two-year-olds, yearlings, foals and brood mares, the property of a number of owners, among them being W. S. Kilmer, R. T. Wilson, G. D. Widener, John A. Drake, J. O. Keene and Phil Chinn. Many of the thoroughbreds in this shipment were obtained in the Newmarket sales. Among the two-year-olds in that shipment which have since raced their way to fame and made names for themselves as sires in this country were Sun Briar, War Cloud, Hand Grenade, Jusqu au Bout, and Trompe la Mort.
