Espin, the English steeple- hase jockeys, will do the riding for the stable. REAR RACES HERE AND ABROAD. Mr. Head, who returned to England by the Oil matt, gets real pleasure out of racing, as in addition to his steeplechase stable hire he runs a number of horses on the flat in England, so, irrespective of which side of the Atlantic he is on, he secures enjoyment in seeing his colors in the racing field. In addition to Commander J. K. L. Ho.-.s and Mr. Head, who are original directors of the laurel Park Stud company. John McK. Bowman, president of the United Hunts Pacing Association, has joined the board, and Major Fetherstonhaugh, the manager of King George V.s stud, and Captain Adio. the manager of the famous Compton stud, are English advisory directors and act with Hundle Brendon, the buyer for the company in England, in approving the bloodstock to be sent to America. JUDGES OF BLOODSTOCK. Both Major Fetherstonhaugh and Captain Adie are considered to be among the foremost judges of bloodstock in England and it is their keen interest in helping maintain the traditions of the English thoroughbred that led them to become interested in tho Laurel Park Stud. Major Fetherstonhaugh is also a steward of most of the important meetings li»dd in England under National Hunt rules and is therefore well fitted to advise regarding the best class of horses suitable for steoplechasing. Huring the English flat racing season — April to November — Major Fetherstonhaugh is fully occupied directing King Georges racing establishment, but toward the end of this year Major Fetherstonhaugh expects to pay a visit to this country to see the principal studs and meet American breeders so that he may become thoroughly familiar with bloodstock requirements in this country.
