CAMDEN COLORS COMING BACK Sells Hartland Stud to Silas Mason and Announces Return to Turf Next Year. VERSAILLES, Ky., Aug. 4. The white and black colors of former senator Johnson N. Camden will be seen prominently in 1934 racing. That was the announcement made by the chairman of the board of directors of the American Turf Association after the sale of his Hartland Stud to Silas B. Mason last week. For the past two years the Camden colors have been carried only by Ben Minturn, and the disposal sale of the Hartland Stud brood stock in 1931 was one of the largest sales held in this country. The sale of Hartland Stud, one of the largest and best appointed breeding lishments in Kentucky, was a cash transaction, and is said to have cost Mr. Mason 00,000. Mr. Mason, who maintains Dun-treath Stud, near Lexington, is part-owner of the Warm Stable, while Mrs. Mason purchased Head Play on the eve of the Kentucky Derby for 0,000. Senator and Mrs. Camden will move to Runnymede Stud, near Paris, Ky., and it is at this farm that he will carry on a breeding establishment. Like Hartland, Runnymede Stud is famous for its produce. During the score of years that the Camden colors were seen in competition, such well known stars as Rose of Sharon, Roth-ermel, Hydromel, Helios, Solly, Darjeeling and others carried them to important triumphs, while the produce of Light Brigade and Peter Quince, which stood at Hartland, were the leaders in their day. Mr. Mason intends moving the major portion of his breeding stock from Duntreath to Hartland and from time to time he will add extensively to his fashionable stud. I
