LUCKY HOURS STUD CAREER To Begin at Bramble Farm, New Breeding Establishment. W. E. Caskey, Jr., Secures Two-Tear Lease On Speedy Son of Hourless Trlncc Pal to Stand at Nalapa Farm. LEXINGTON. Ky., Feb. 7. Lucky Hour, the five-year-old son of Hourless and Lucky Catch, by Trap Rock, today has been leased by W. E. Caskey, Jr., from E. F. Simms, the master of Nalapa Farm, and is to be retired to the stud. The lease covers a term of -two years, during which this fast and game race horse is to stand at Bramble Farm. This is a new breeding establishment. Bramble Farm contains 125 acres of what once was a part of Thrift Stud Farm, which was the establishment of O. H. Chcnault. Caskey bought the land last month and now is completing necessary barns. During the year he will build a residence on the property. He has eight mares, the latest acquisition being Diana, the seven-year-old daughter of McGee Fly Catcher, by Hastings, which he purchased from F. Longfield and which arrived here yesterday from Omaha. A few days ago Caskey bought Dalliance, a three-year-old daughter of Troutbeck Dally, by Giganteum, from Edward Cebrian. This filly has defective vision and for that reason was not offered at the Cebrian disposal sale. Caskey has been generally congratulated by local breeders upon having acquired Lucky Hour and he will have little trouble in filling his book. Caskey said today that he will buy a half dozen more mares and Simms has booked ten of his mares to the son of Hourless, which showed his heels to such as Bunting, Captain Alcock and Sennings Park. INSPECTS GOLDEN GUINEA. William B. Miller, the owner of the good-looking young imported stallion Golden Guinea and a number of mares and yearlings quartered at Beaumont Farm, and half-owner with; Hal Price Headley in Uncle, is here on a visit of inspection. He is enthusiastic about Golden Guinea, he having already disclosed himself to be sure as a foal getter, though none have yet arrived. Miller has booked twelve mares to High Cloud, the three-parts brother to High Time, which is coming to Haylands from the Audley Farm in Virginia next week. The first foal of the year at Xalapa Farm is a bay filly by Leonardo II., from Gerbe dOr, by Verdun, a young French mare ; it is likewise the first of the get of Leonardo II., which was one of the fastest horses ever foaled in Kentucky and which now is one of the best looking of the sons of Sweep. "This horse cant miss being a sire," said Simms after he had seen this filly. "I sent twenty-five mares to him last spring and he got twenty-one of them in foal." Simms, during last summer, bought Prince Pal back from Bud Fisher and the son of Prince Palatine is to stand at Xalapa Farm this season. He now is at Thomas Piatts Brookdale Farm, but will be transferred to Xalapa Farm about March 1. His first get are yearlings and they are good looking in-diiduals. Senator Joseph W. Bailey stopped off here yesterday on his way to Washington and saw his horses. High Time now is at his Donegal Farm, where a new barn is being completed. Earl Lee has a chestnut filly by All Gold ; she is the second of the mares to be sold at the Short Grass Stud disposal to drop a foal.
