J. E. W1DENER STABLE Sixteen of Seventeen Horses in Training Are Juveniles. Most of Youngsters Which Will Race for Jockey Club Steward Are Home-Breds. NEW YORK, N. Y., March 11. Thomas Welsh is preparing seventeen horses owned by Joseph E. Widener, steward of the Jockey Club, at Belmont Park for this years racing. Sixteen of these are two-year-olds, most ol which, are home-breds. Mr. Widener has extended his breeding activities greatly during the last few years. Last year he acquired the fine English stallion Stefan the Great and brought him to this country for use as a stock horse. He already owns an aggregation of choice mares and a number of them will be bred to the gray foreigner this spring. PROMISING BAND OF YOUNGSTERS. The two-year-olds in the Widener barn at Belmont Park are a promising band. All oi them are of choice blood lines and among the sires represented are Olambala, sire Of Pillory, largest money winner during the year 1922 ; Hourless. sire of Lucky Hour ; Fair Play, sire of Man o War; McGee, sire ot Exterminator ; Lemberg, Sweep. Omar Khayyam, Wrack and North Star III. Mr. Wideners purchase and importation ot Stefan the Great has been hailed by American breeders as a great service to the bloodstock industry in this country. The son o The Tetrarch is considered by good judges to be the most important addition to the American stallion roster since August Belmont brought Rock Sand here. Stefan the Great is now at Elmendorf Farm in Kentucky. NO RIDER SIGNED.
