Twenty-Four Horses Quartered There, Including United Verde, Which Will Hace Again Next Year. LOUISVILLE, Ky., Dec. 21 G. V. Barnes, . who. has trained the horses of C. W. ClarltYj of Montana, Tor a number of years, has established a breeding farm near this city and the farm of 290 acres is called Barnesdale. The crack Wiskaway, for which. Mr. Clark 1 paid a reported price of 00,000, purchasing the horse from II. P. Whitney, is at the head of this- new breeding establishment. Whisk-away was a wonderfully fast horse, but never lived up to his early reputation after passing into the ownership of C. W, Clark, i His greatest feat oh the turf was the defeat of Morvich, .in the 0,000 added Kentucky Special at Latonia. Last Spring was Wiskaways first season in the stud and he was mated with fifteen mares. Among them are Bronzewing, a Kentucky Oaks winner; Lady Lexington, Valeureuse. Army Maid, a mare obtained at private sale from the estate of the late G. L. Blackford, Denmson, Texas, breeder; Charline, Gammer Gurton and Arrow Point. Thomas M. Murphy, of Golden Maxim fame, who owns Lady Lexington, also bred five other mares to Whiskaway. When United Verde went amiss early in the Spring of 192o, Barnes decided cn a stud career for him, but he was mated with only two mares, Valeureuse and a mare imported from England by Baylor Hickman, well-known capitalist and sportsman of this city. The Valeureuse union resulted in a good looking bay filly, while the English mare dropped a colt of the same color that has attracted much attention because cf his splendid appearance. Both went to the court of Whiskaway last Spring. ARMY MAIDS FOAL. Army Maid was in foal to Rickety, which formerly raced for Harry Payne Whitney, when Barnes acquired her. She foaled a brown 2 illy, and this youngster has also been the subject of much favorable comment. It will be more than a year hence before she will be eligible to race, but Barnes has already chosen her name Cynthia Grey. Gammer Gurton was presented to II. Patterson, who has been his faithful aid since he first became connected with racing. As the result of ;t mating with Captain Mae, this mare foaled a. chestnut colt. Captain Mac was sold by Barnes to Milo Shields. At the present time there are twenty-four horses quartered at Barnesdale. These include Megan, Kittie Jim, and Midnight Rose, owned by Walter Kohn, a member of the Kentucky State Racing Commission, and Clem Thcisen, a young business man of this city, and two belonging to J. Ahearn, of Chicago. Megan will not race again. She was bred to Whiskaway. Kittie Jim and Midnight Rose will be fired during the Winter and should be ready for the silks in early Spring. Only one of the Barnes horses is at Churchill Downs. This is a yearling bay colt by Peter Quince Valeureuse, and he is exceptionally large for his age. Dan Lehan is caring for him. DEL FOUNTAIN AT BARNESDALE. Del Fountain, who trained horses for a quarter of a century or more, is in charge of affairs at Barnesdale. His long connection with the turf, coupled with his knowledge of thoroughbred blood lines, make him a valuable man in this line. The yearlings quartered there will be moved into the Downs in the early Spring to be given their preliminary racing lessons, Unless United Verde should go wrong again he will be back in active racing next Spring. He did not meet with the success expected of him in 1921, but he wound up the year in good form.
