1 Admiral Lea Arrives at Farm; WiH Enter Stud, Next Spring LEXINGTON, Ky., June 13.— Olin Gentry, manager of the Danada Farm of Dan and Ada Rice, received from the Rice racing stable in New York the five-year-old Admiral Lea. The son of Bull Lea — Que Gato, by Blue Larkspur, would not stand training and will enter the stud next year. He has not started since he finished second to Ponder in the Arlington Classic in July, 1949. Gentry is particularly enthused over Admiral Leas prospects at stud because of both his sire and dam. Gentry was for many years associated with the late Col. E. R. Bradley in whose breeding programs Blue Larkspur played such a prominent part. Improvements and enlargement continue at Danada. Arrangments have been made with John W. Galbreath, of Darby Dan Farm, Galloway, Ohio, for the purchase of a 10-acre tract lying between two sections of the Danada Farm. Fred W. Hoopers Olympia also stands at Danada.
