FRENCH YEARLING MARKET Expected to Boom During Coming Season Because of Vast Increases in Stake Values. SPECIAL CORRESPONDENCE. PARIS, France, March 7. Since racing closed here last November the writer has visited many of the breeding farms in Normandy. Everybody thinks that on account of the increased value of the stakes this season yearlings are going to sell higher than ever at Deauville. Jerry Welsh has been able to get a few colts and fillies together which he liked ahead of the sales. They are well bred, being by Isard II., Clarissimus, McKinley, Rabelais, Jaeger and Durbar. This season there will be many yearlings in the ring by horses which are making their first offerings at stud. How much this is going to influence the sales remains to be seen. I know for a fact that the Marquis de Saint Sauveur offered for some client of his 150,000 francs apiece for the pick of six yearlings by Sardanapale, which was turned down with thanks by Maurice de Rothschild.
