DASHAWAY BRED AFTER A FAD. Daahnwas*, the three year old colt recently added to .1. E. Middens racing stable, is the result of Mlowlng an BngHsh fad in breeding, that of returning to Hie sire through the uiare mated to him the be-1 blood of his dam or, more plainly siwiken. Judicious Inbreeding. Dashaway was bred by Colonel W. S. Barnes, who al that time owned his dam. Fancywooil. He sent the noted racemare to Elmen-dorf anil Basted her to Salvator in the spring of 1003. and in the tall of that year, when the original Melbourne stud Has dispersed, T. •.

Salvidere anil Blue Girl are from the same family on both side* of the house. Dashaway won three races last year, one at Louisville, another at Sheepsheatl Bay. and the last at Brighton Beach in which he ran three quarters of a mile in 1:14 with IIS pounds up. The remembrance of that race, as liehind him were such good eolts as Peuarris and George Davis, no doubt caused Mr. Madden to add him to his stable this year. Mr. Madden has rarely made a bail bargain in buying three-year-olds in Kentucky after such performers showed fairly well in other hands as two -year-olds. Last year his selection for a chance was Sampson, and it was at Rirshaways age that he secured one of the best all around breadwinners, the hardy Colonel Bill.
