Miss Todd Speedy Your Host Juvenile Sires First Stake Winner; Set Five-Furlong Record of :57V5 at Hollywood, May 27 By ARTHUR E. JAMES FREEHOLD, N. J., June 4.— Much ado was made over the two-year-old Pollys Jet who made a track record of five furlongs in :58 at Garden State Park recently, but there is a two-year-old filly running in California that is of extreme interest to the New Jersey breeders which just established a new record for five furlongs in :57Vs on May 21. N The juvenile filly is Miss Todd, named,, incidentally, for the former hostess at Santa Anita, the charming- Miss Frances Todd. Miss Todd is one of the three Your Host two-year-olds who have won in California. Miss Todd came back after establishing the blistering mark of :5lVs on Friday, May 27 and scored her fourth straight win in the Junior League Stakes, and thus became the first stakes winner for Your Host. Tlie syndicate estimates for it is difficult to follow the racing news from California here in the East that Your Host two-year-olds have accounted for upwards of 0,000 in winnings since the first of the year. Brewer Painting Completed Speaking of Your Host, Allen Brewer has just completed a painting of the plucky chestnut which he is bringing to New Jersey with him next week. Brewer, is expected to remain in New Jersey for a week or ten days photographing yearlings which are to be sold at auction this coming season. John Gordon, manager at James C. Bradys Hamilton Farms at Gladstone, re- ► . ports 21 mares have been bred to Casemate this season. Owners sending mares to the beautiful chestnuts court include Town-send B. Martin, P. H. B. Frelinghuysen, Charles F. H. Johnson, Jr., Dr. John D. Preece, William G. Helis, Jr., Reeve Schley and Anderson Fowler. It is amazing to note the marked likeness of all of Casemates foals. There are a few two year-olds at the races this year and a nice crop of yearlings coming along. During the recent Garden State Park meeting, 21 races were won by New Jersey-bred horses. Seventeen Jersey-breds ran second and 20 ran third. During the meet there weer only four races carded for Jersey-breds, all of which filled with sizable fields. Fosbinders Return From Abroad Dr. and Mrs. Russel J. Fosbinder of Clearfield Farms, Peapack, have just returned from a tour of the breeding farms in England and Ireland. While in Ireland, they purchased the 16-year-old mare Star Sapphire from the Irish national stud. Star Sapphire is by Mahmoud out of Cum-ba by Coronach — Dawn Wind. She has a foal by Tulyar at her side which is not included in the sale and is a foal to Arctic Prince. It is expected that she will be shipped to the Fosbinders Clearfield Farm later in the year. The Fosbinders will Continued on Page Forty-Two Speedy Juvenile Miss Todd Offspring of Your Host Continued from Page Twenty-Seven • sell two yearlings at Saratoga this year, their second season at the Spa Sales. Mr. and Mrs. George Howell have had six foals at their Tourelay Farm, Scobey-ville. Four of them are by Yineland, the sire of the Howells stakes* winner Punkin Vine. One is by Scobeyville and one is by Greek Warrior. The Vinelands are a striking looking lot, but George is particularly partial- to one out of the mare Gaye Dot whom he describes affectionately as having the hindquarters of a Percheron and the head of a Shetland pony. With Monmouth Park opening within the week one hears the perennial cry of "No Stalls!" It seems no matter how many new stalls are added each year there are never enough to go around. In addition to the stalls at the racetrack and those at the recently acquired Wolf Hill Farm, all are filled to capacity. The facilities at Jay Cee and Brookdale also are taking up the overflow.
