KENTON FARM STABLE PUNS To Dispose of Horses in Training and Brood Mares — Set Price On Three at 5,000. LEXINOTOX. Ky., April 18— The Kenton Farm Stable today changed trainers, Monk Overton, who broke the horses, succeeding George Land, who had them at Miami the past winter, where he won two races, was twice second and twice third in seven starts. Messrs. Payne and West, owners of the Kenton Farm, who bred the horses, today let it be known that they are planning to dispose of some of the horses in training and some of their brood mares. "We are getting too many horses," said John A. Payne, Jr., "and it is calling for more attention than either of us can conveniently give." Land said that he would like to have Typhoon, Rainstorm and Atlantic, and the owners priced them to him at 5,000 for the three, asking 3,000 for Typhoon. 5,000 for Atlantic and 0,000 for Rainstorm, if taken singly. Land said that he had obtained the prices for a party in Chicago who had indicated his willingness to back him with about three good horses. Atlantic is by Oceanic — Belle of Arcadia, and Rainstorm is by Thunderstorm — Florsain. There are five others in the string, all by Thunderstorm, they being Hailstorm brother to General Haldeman. Torrent, Rainfall, Storm Maiden and Cloudburst. General Haldeman and Padona, both of which were bred by Messrs. Payne and West, are in the hands of Will Perkins, who has an interest in them. General Haldeman Is training good, but Padona is just beginning to gallop again after a let-up.
