RACE KING A BUREAU HORSE. New York, July 10. Watercolor was shipped Saturday to George S. Bogget, Memphis, Onondaga county, and already a number of mares have been booked to him. Three other shipments will bo made Monday, as follows: On Deck to C. E. Maxon, Adams Centre, Jefferson county; Race King to R. A. Gavin, Claryville, Sullivan county, and Albert F. to R. A. Smith, Millvale,, Long Island. Race King is tlie most recent acquisition to the list of stallions. He was presented by O. L. Richards a few days ago, and should prove a valuable horse for the purpose of the Bureau. Race King is a son of Tenny and was a good racehorse, though not a liorse of the highest class. Ills most notable race was his dead heat with Sysonby for the -MOtloiIllan Handicap of 1905, and , while1 it may be a lucky stroke for the son of Tenny, the fact remains that he came nearer to beating Mr. Kecnes champion than any other horse did that year. Race King is a small liorse, but splendidly proportioned and is said to have spread and thickened into a handsome stallion since his retirement from racing. Tlie first foals the result of the Breeding Bureaus work were due early in July, and to date a number have been reported. The results are gratifying to the farmers who own the mares.
