STALLION CATARACT SOLD W. B. Miller Buys the Son of Ben Brush and Running Stream for His Greenwich Stud. W. B. Millers Greenwich Stud has acquired the stallion Cataract, a fifteen-year-old son of Ben Brush and llunning Stream. The stallion will stand at Lexington for the season of 1925. j Cataract was a stake winner in England as a two-year-old. He started in three big fixtures as a three-year-old, carrying weights ranging from 125 pounds up and continued to win consistently in England until he was an eight-year-old. He was brought to this country and retired to the. stud in 1920. His first crop of nine, foaled in 1921, included four two-year-old winners. One of the nine died. His 1922 crop of foals were six in number. One of these died ; one won as a two-year-old ; another finished second and another third during the juvenile season. The owner of one of these youngsters refused an offer of I 0,000 for the horse. For his third, fourth and fifth stud seasons Cataract was leased to J. H. Rosseter, who j shipped him to California. There he was I mated with a collection of high-class mares which Mr. Rosseter had acquired from J. E. Madden. From the first years matings of Cataract with these mares in California there were twelve foals, now yearlings. Five 1 of these are colts and seven fillies. Among! the choicest of these are a bay colt from Dona Winifreda ; a chestnut filly from Bold Girl, the dam of Audacious, and a bay filly from Collar of Roses. The second seasons matings produced six colts and four fillies, now weanlings. This year Cataract was bred to twenty of Mr. ! Rosseters finest mares and shipped back to! Kentucky. He was later purchased by Mr. Miller.
