H. P. WHITNEYS LAST CROP Current Year Will See Last Band of Juveniles Bred Under Noted Sportsmans Direction. NEW YORK, March 21. The current year will witness the last of the two-year-olds bred by the late Harry Payne Whitney. The late sportsman began breeding thoroughbreds in 1905, succeeding his father, William C. Whitney, in the ownership of the La Belle Stud. The first horses bred by Harry Payne Whitney became of racing age about 1908, and it is questionable if any breeder the world over ever bred the winners of as many races and as much money as the late Harry Payne Whitney. Complete figures are difficult if not impossible to obtain, hut it is possible to secure the totals for the years from 1922 to 1931, both inclusive, through the agency .of the American Racing Manual, the most valuable work of its kind ever published. The following tabulation sets forth the number of races won by horses bred by the late Harry Payne Whitney, with the amount of money won by them each year, and as it may constitute some worth as a record in its particular field, it is appended herewith: Year. Races Won. Money Won. 1922 231 493,607.00 1923 253..... 503,463.00 1924 272 482,865.00 1925 295 391,846.00 1926 . 351 715,158.00 1927 271 718,144.00 1928 234 514,822.00 1929 278 825,374.00 1930 .....!.... 294 698,280.00 1931 264 583,020.00 Totals 2,743 ?5,926,579.00 Av. per year 274 $ 592,657.90 During the ten years in question, Mr. Whitney bred eight horses that won in excess of 00,000.
