T. L. WATTS TWELVE TWO-YEAR-OLDS 5 Filly by Gone Coon-Hurtle Is One of the e Grandest Lookers at Gravesend. New York. January IS.— T. L. Watt, the Harlem ii banker, who has raced a small stable with consider r- able success for several years has twelve juveniles in winter quarters at OriWWli, For several years rs Mr. Watt has bought rather liberally of Douglas ls Grands annual consignments of yearlings from Eng-hlhl. J" and in this manner be secured last seasons s Twin City Handicap winner. Pine Cloth. Don ltoyal " and other winners. While youngsters of English breeding are rcprc e sented in the coining seasons stable. Mr. Watt, or r lath.-r the stable manager. Charles H. Plack. bought *j more generally of the native bred yearlings offered * lor sale last summer. That he was a discriminating J* buyer is demonstrated by a look over the horses in the stable. Almost without exception they show size aud quality and will compare favorably with any stable on Pong Island. One of the foreign bred youngsters is a big. fine racy-looking bay colt by Pather Confessor, out of ,- Koffee, by Stralhuiore. This colt is a full brother to Confessor, for which J. L. Holland paid only 0o 0,, a.; a yearling in October, 1903. He is a well-muscled t,lt colt,, with g xl depth through the girth, a back t.k which denotes ability to carry weight and well-turned ].. quarters. Nothing is known of his Bpeed ,.,! qualities an yet, but he looks the part aud should ,1,1 race with credit when asked the question. Mr. Watt ,tt Ixuight him privately from Mr. Grand last October. A likely looking chestnut colt by Ramapo — Mag-llna lK. resembles bis sire very much. He has a good od lead and neck, strong quarters and with his hind nd legs well under him. he has the cut of a good horse. ite. A cleanly made colt is the imported sou of Orion-Columbian , owa sister to Darleydale, winner of the he — E tl: sl put In . tl, by 0", of . ., s] | by m . is _ f| . is , f. n , t fi e i U | s 1 j t , , 3 I , I . j , I 1 l i ] | ! c f s . :, 5 e ii — j Pclipse Slakes, by St. Simon. Mr. Watt bought to tc this fellow also li.iin Mr. Grand at private sale. He qi stands alxiut fifteen hands three inches and is wM 0 together all over. He is built for speed, and all n all there are few flaws that could be picked in « ran him. fine of Mr. Watts own breeding is a chestnut colt ■ Belmar — Warley. He has size and ccnforniatiou P the liest type to recommend him. and looks like ■ coming to hand early. ■ A taking looking youngster is the chestnut gelding • Star Xallapa, by Star Shoot— Xallapa, with a well e shaped head and neck. Immense shoulders, broad U h*ek and quarters that would fit a four year-old. he tl iMfca every inch a racehorse. He is highly reganlwcl a the stalde, though his price as a yearling was 10 1 13 only 100. Pink and Blue, after Mr. Watts racing colors, at a the name of the brown filly by Kingston, out of a Cap and Bells, the only American bred filly to win r the Pnglish Oaks. This iilly is rather small s but is built on good racing lines and shows much c quality. Mr. Watt paid «0 for her as a yearling, li One of the best looking fillies seen in some time 1 the chestnut by Gone Coon, out of Hurtle. Gone Coon is a Galopin stallion which was brought over v from Ku*laiid in 11*04, h having covered the yiipg I mare Hurtle, by The Rush, Itefore his departure, t This filly was foaled in 1H 5 and was brought over i last October by Mr. Grand and sold privately to Mr. r Watt. Gone Coon has yet to make a reputation In t this country, but if there is anything in looks, this t filly should bring him into notice. There are few i essential points lacking in her conformation, and she 1 almost sure to race well If nothing happens to i her. She reminds one very much of Whimsical when . she was a two-year-old and Mr. Plack will be well , pleased if she but races as well. | A fine filly with size and quality to recommend is the home-bred miss by Warrenton. out of Prudence. , the dam of I.ady Pncas. This iilly shows some tine . lacing i oiiits, but hardly compares with the Gone Coon filly. Another smart looking miss is the full sister to Mmy Park, by Jim lore — Twitter. She stands about fifteen hands one iu«li. has good head and i shoulders, tine middle piece and good quarters. Al- ■ though she is lacking in height, she makes up for it j in quality. She is what would lie called a big little ] one. A brown filly by Galore — Branch and a half fcister to Sandalwood, shows size and quality, and ought t to come to hand early, The bay filly by Ben Strome — Daisy Rose, is a 1 half sister to McMeekin. She has much to recom-f - mend her in makeup and is. in fact, an extra appearing filly and one that should give a good account 1 of herself when thoroughly wound up. Mr. Watt t pajid .».V» for her and lie ha« named her Rose of Ben Strome. Black Owl, the black filly by Galore — Clymena. is 3 built on the light order, but shows many good points. She should come to hand for the early meetings. • Billy Garth bought her for 00 and later traus-s ferred her to Mr. Watt. The older horses iu the stable are all In good 1 winter condition. Pine Cloth, looks exceptionally f good and may be a factor in some of the seasons big 1 , events. The list includes Sir William Johnson, Dou a Royal, Consistent, Moonshine, Lady Warrenton, by v Warrenton — Lady Prudence, Gitche Mauito, by Bel-mar — Maid of Harlem. The two last named are • three vear olds which did not race last year,
