BABTIMOBE, Md., April 4.— To the genuine sportsman such races as the rimlico Home-Bred Stakes for two-year-olds have an especial appeal, and this fixture will have its second running at the coming Pimlico spring meeting on Friday, May 2. The Stake is at four and a half furlongs, starters to be owned by the breeder, and to have been his absolute property since the time of foaling. The sum of ,500 is added to the starting fee of 0 each, and the breeder of the winner will receive a piece of plate. To B. T. Wilson belongs the credit of owning the first winner of the Pimlico Home-Bred in 1922, when Tall Timber, ridden by Jimmy Butwell, carried off the prize for the president of the Saratoga Bacing Association. In the following year, 1923, W. M. Jef-fords handsome chestnut colt. Cockney, with Morris in the saddle, won from a good band, including E. B. McLeans Happy Night, second ; J. S. Cosdens Kings Bansom, third; with Samuel Bess Haughty Bady, Ii. T. Wilsons Wampee, Thomas Clydes Mender and Showy, and General .1. A. Buchanans Gold-mawr among the "also rans." It is gratifying to note that the number of turfmen breeding their own stock is on the increase, the list in Maryland including R. J. Walden. A. H. Morris. Thomas Clyde. William Woodward, H. G. Bedwell, and in New York. Bobert B. Gerry, who has a well equipped farm, at the head of which is the Maryland-bred stallion, Heno. The Maryland Breeding Bureau, connected with the Maryland Jockey Club, has for sev- eral years been endeavoring to interest farm- ers in breeding gocd stock and the result of their efforts is now becoming manifest. There is no reason why farmers with fair grazing and a good stall or two cannot raise a thoroughbred or half-bred colt that will more than pay for itself at two or three years old, as there is a big demand for race horses and hunters. At present the Maryland Breeding Bureau has at Pimlico the fine stallion, Copper Demon, by Ormondale, a striking individual with a fine record on Ihe turf, formerly owned by the Quincy Stable ; also Dalhousie by Bryn Mawr, the property of Thomas Clyde. In Anne Arundel county, the Maryland Breeding Bureau has placed Mendocino, by Disguise, and Cormae, by Star Shoot, and in Prince Georges county, is imported Bcd-eric II., by Desmond, that cost the late Oscar Eewisohn 5,000 as a yearling at Newmarket. Up in Harford county is Superillusion. by Superman, a good type to breed from, presented to the Maryland Breeding Bureau by A. J. Goldsborough, act.ng for C. A. Stone- ham. Already the good effects of this policy is shown by the appearance on the farms in these sections of classy individuals that have been bought by members of the various hunt clubs for fancy figures, and it is up to the farmer himself to breed stock eligible to such races as the Pimlico Home-Bred. the Pimlico Futurity, as well as for the hunting field.
