TICK ON BEGINS STUD DUTY LEXINGTON, Ky May 25. E. R. Bradleys Tick On, which went wrong last spring when he was among the top flight of three-year-olds and failed to stand training this spring, has been bred to five mares at Idle Hour Farm, it was learned today at the farm office. The mares sent to the young 1 son of On Watch are Blowout, Binary Star, Bull Doze, Beauty Slave and Mary Grace. Beauty Slave is a sister to Black Servant. One other mare, owned by Roy H. Farmer, is set to be bred to Tick On. The colt was trained to sulky early this spring, in the hope that his tendon would prove sound enough to stand racing, but a foreleg began to show fever and the training was discontinued. There is a chance that another effort to race Tick On may be made next spring.
