XALAPA SPECIAL ARRIVES Horses to Be Sold Wednesday and Thursday Nights Reach New York Without Mishap. NEW YORK, N. Y., Dec. 9. The Nalapa Farm special arrived from Kentucky and in a few hours the ntire band of horses that will be disposed of under the auspices of the Fasig-Tiptdn Company were stabled in Squadron A Armory at 04th street and Madison avenue. The train bearing the thoroughbred stock, one of the most valuable to be unloaded in New York in many years, was delayed several hours on the way, but none of the horses suffered any ill effects. One hundred and forty head, comprising stallions, brood mares, yearlings and weanlings, were unloaded. A car with twelve horses from Saratoga and another car with seven from Havre de Grace, brought the total up to one hundred and fifty-nine head. Negofol, winner of the French Derby and one of the outstanding stallions of the sale, was taken from the shipment at Paris, Ky., at the last minute. A slight atack of illness developed before shipping time. The other horses shipped well and during the afternoon were viewed by a large number of prospective purchasers. Spacious quarters were allotted to the shipment. Many additional box stalls were erected. Eternal, Leonardo II., The Wanderer, Lucky Play and Theo. Cook head the shipment. Many of the brcod mares are the choicest obtainable. The yearlings and weanlings stood the journey in great shape and aroused no end of interest from the spectators. James McClelland was kept busy during the afternoon showing the stock. Trainer Roy Waldron took especial interest in the thoroughbreds that were raced during the fall and summer. Kentucky breeders and owners made up the bulk of the attendance that viewed the horses during the day. Reports from recent arrivals are that many are en route and will arrive the day of the sale. Among those in the crowd yesterday were J. E. Madden, A. J. Joyner, C. L. Snyder, G. P. Keene, J. B. Respess, John Carr, Thomas Piatt, J. O. Keene, Luther Combs, Brownell Combs, Fred Goode, J. L. Rhinock, Henry Watterson, Joseph Edwards, James Fitzsimmons and Mose Goldblatt.
