Continuing its policy of dividing the top consignors over the four-day sessions, the sales company offers the yearlings of the Spendthrift Farm of Leslie Combs II. and those of the Wood vale Farm of Royce G. Martin to top the first session on Monday, July 30. The following day, the Claiborne Stud of Arthur B. Hancock and the Stoner Creek Farm of Mr. and Mrs. John D. Hertz will share the spotlight. The Wednesday vendue will see the Mereworth Farm of Walter J. Salmon offer 43 youngsters supported by consignments from Charles Nuckols and Sons Hurstland Farm, Warner Jones Hermitage Farm and others. The Coldstream Stud of E. E. Dale Shaffer will feature the final session which includes the consignments of .Thomas Piatt, High Hope Farm of Douglas M. Davis, the Old Hickory Farm of Col. Phil T. Chinn and others. A new feature to be introduced into the catalogue by Evans is the publishing of the barn locations at Keeneland of the yearlings to be sold.
