Kentucky Breeding Notes j | j j i I ■ ; i LEXINGTON, Ky., May 9. 1 Short Life, the juvenile colt who has won all of his starts under the colors of his breeder, Jay D. Weil, is the result of a breeding pattern designed long ago by Weil. The master of Walnut Springs Farm wished to inbreed Friar Rock blood. In 1938 he purchased from Miss E. A. Rotelli the race mare, Blandishment, a daughter of Apprehension by Friar Rock , sent her to Ellerslie Stud, where the next spring she was mated with Tintagel out of a Friar Rock mare. The result was Short Life, one of the best juveniles of the recent Keeneland meeting. Edwin S. Moore, owner of Circle M Farm, purchased from Robert Fairbairn the brood mares, Marching Along and Malvina B. Marching Along, a chestnut mare, 1937, by Man o War— Annette K., has a bay filly by Rhodes Scholar, and is in foal to Sweeping Light. Malvina B., a bay mare, 1923, by Sir John Johnson — Love Story, was barren this spring, but is now in foal to Sir Gallahad III. Marching Along is the dam of Temulac, Malvina B. the dam of Special Agent. Coldstream Stud owns five My Play brood mares. They are Gentle Play, Bour- lon Reel, Last Song, My Lava and Perini. Admiralette, full-sister of War Admiral, did not have a foal this year. Retired to the stud in 1941, she was mated with Trace Call but did not conceive. This year the daughter of Man o War— Brush Up is be- ing returned to Trace Call. Admiralette was foaled on the 21st birthday of Man o War. She is owned by Samuel D. Riddle. Joe Stevens, of the Stevens Catering Co., took time off while in Kentucky on business to tour the Kentucky horse farms. "Never dreamed they were so beautiful," he commented, after visiting Calumet, Idle Hour, Elmendorf and the Whitney farms. Samuel D. Riddle, who came here for his annual spring visit at Faraway Farm, was much impressed with the condition of his four stallions, Man o War, War Admiral, Trace Call, and American Flag. The brood mares, Venice and Way of an Eagle are in good health at venerable ages at Xalapa Farm. When the Xalapa horses were dispersed in January, 1939, they were not offered because of their age. They were pensioned at Xalapa. Both were imported. Venice, now 25, is by Marcovil — Pamphyle, by Robert le Diable. Way of an Eagle, now 26, is by White Eagle— Gipsy Hill, by Avington. Filante, dam of seven stake winners, produced recently her 17th foal, a bay filly, by Flares. Owned by Belair Stud, she is dam of the stake winners, Fenelon, Frisius, Flying Gal, Filemaker, Flying Spear and Fresh Fox. She is kept with the other Belair mares at Claiborne Stud. Paris. Imprudent, winner of the Aberdeen and Masquerader Stakes, produced her first foal, a bay colt, by War Admiral, recently, at the Ashby Corum Farm, Madisonville, Ky. The young matron is being mated with Bull Dog. As a juvenile in 1939, Imprudent won seven races and 0,280 in 12 starts. The Greentree Farm colts, Shut Out and Devil Diver, -came from mares of stake class. Shut Oufs dam, Goose Egg, won the Spinaway Stakes and Milkmaid Handicap, Devil Divers dam, Dabchick, ran third to Mata Hari and Far Star in the Arlington Lassie Stakes. Boot and Spur, the three-year-old who came east as a dark horse for the Derby, is a grandson of Mirabelle. a full sister of Man o War. His dam is by Gallant Fox, winner of the Derby, and was bred and raised by Warner Jones, Jr., nearby Derby town. Thomas Piatt is proud of a filly foaled recently at his Brookdale Farm. She is a half sister of Alsab, a bay, by Epithet-Winds Chant, by Wildair. This year, Winds Chant is being sent to the court of Good Goods, sire of Alsab. The three young mares Hal Price Head-ley is sending to the court of Eight Thirty iare: Heritage, by Pharamond II.— Big Sis, by Son-in-Law; Highanlow, by Pharamond IL— Hilee, by Mad Hatter, and Pharalet, by Pharamond II. — Chacolet, by St. Amant. Kempland Farm, owned by Mrs. Harry Morrissey and now leased to J. N. Wiggin-ton, Jr., is believed to have derived it-name from the first winner ridden by the late Mr. Morrissey. Several farms are reducing their brood mare holdings because of the labor problem, many employes having been drafted and numerous others having taken jobs in defense industries. Last week a demonstration on the planting of hemp was conducted on Coldstream Stud. Almost all of the horse farms in this locality are raising hemp seed, needed very much in defense. With Regards is an oddly marked thoroughbred in that his right fore leg is gray. Several good racers have had one gray leg. The young Bull Dog mare, Joybird, produced a chestnut colt recently at Coldstream Stud.
