Riley Sold for 50 CHURCHILL DOWNS. Louisville, Ky.. May 5. — It was C. H. Durkee, who bred Riley, winner of the 1890 Derby, and sold him to Edward Corrigan for 50 when the colt was a yearling. Riley was a son of Frank Harpers Longfellow. He was a small horse, which probably accounts for the fact that he originally was named Short Fellow. He never raced under that name. The first three horses to finish in the 1890 Derby were either by Harpers Nantura Stud In Woodford county or were bre*d there.
