Touchstone the foundation stone of nearly all perfect pedigrees and her second dam was old Poca ¬ hontas herself by imp Glencoe Thus combining several times over tho wonderful Glencoo blood Any breeder stinting a good maro to Handspring has a chance to produce tho greatest horse that ever lived and his stud fee is certainly a very low one taking everything into consideration Rainbow B BBrown

his first season in the stud at Melbourne in 1900 but he was stinted to a few mares before that and from those services he has had seven starters every one of which has been returned a winner including the three high class performers Menace who won eighteen races a greater number than any other threeyearold filly in training in 1901 Wealth a threeyearold filly who in her first and maiden start forced the noted Futurity winner Ogden then an older horse to run a mile under 1 40 to beat her a head and Percy F a several times stake winner For 1902 Rainbow is limited to thirty mares of

Prince of Private By imp St Blaise dam Carina by Kingfisher Siro of Fancywood Blennenworth Monarka Precur ¬ sor Autumn Leaves Sting Kilmantle who won twice and was placed four other times out of seven startsin England in 1901 Colbert and many other winners winnersThe The Melbourne Stud now consists of five stallions and 108 of as finely bred young matrons as can be found on any single breeding farm in this country The mares are now kept on eight different farms and the yearlings on four different farms far apart and yet within a few miles of Melbourne for it is my fixed opinion that strictly highclass race horses can be bred with more success if kept apart in small lots rather than banded together in large numbers numbersMares Mares kept in box stalls well bedded down the charges will be 10 per month when running on grass 5 which must be considered a very low price considering the established reputation the Mel ¬ bourne Stud hasi for the care of its stallions mares and all thoroughbred stock It is a practice at the Melbourne Stud to try the mares three times a week until the first of June and after that time every day until the season closes July 1st which is a guarantee that every mare will be got in foal if care and attention will accomplish this end endCSPUsual CSPUsual return privilege if horse is alive and in my possession I5 For catalogue and further
