EPINARD TO RETURN HOME Pierre Wertheimer Before Sailing Denies Rumors That Colt Will Remain in This Country. Before Pierro Wertheimer, the notable French sportsman, sailed for home he denied that there was any chance of Epinard being! sold to an American breeder and enter the stud in the United States next spring. Mr. Wertheimer said: "Epinard will go home by the Berengaria and will go to my Haras de Bessan in Normandy where he was bred. I would not be happy with Epinard on this side of the Atlantic. "I wish you would tell the American public how much I appreciate their kindness to me and to my horse. Nothing was left undone to make the campaign pleasant and I will carry with me when I sail for home the recollection of an experience that will be treasured as one of the brightest spots in I my life." When asked if he would come back again if he found another horse worthy of a test; with the best this country could produce the young Frenchman, who has made a hose of friends by his fine sportsmanship, remarked: "Assuredly. Perhaps I may have one of Epinards sons that will bo capable of taking the measure of your best. If I ever get one that has the quality of Epinard it will be a pleasure to return to a country where I have had so many courtesies shown me."
