Too Much Galopin Blood in His Veins for Use at Castleton Standing of Twenty Leading Sires. The tale that James R. Keene had made Barney Sehreiber a tremendously large offer for the star-lion. Sain, did not originate in. Lexington, as has been stated and as Mr. Sehreiber evidently thinks. Investigation shows the story to have originated Latonia, and it was first published in Cincinnati. The purchase of Sain by Mr. Keene at such a price would have come in the nature of a great surprise students of breeding figures hero and elsewhere, and it can be safely said that Mr. Keene, providing he had entertained such a transaction, would have been advised against it by Major Foxhall Daingerficld, who is the director and manager the breeding of the thoroughbreds at Castleton Stud. Sain, the students of breeding maintain, is breeding through the great Irish horse, Rarcaldine, the sire of his dam, The Task, and it is shown that the best of Sains get have come from American-bred mares tracing to the Levity family. Now, in Voter Mr. Keene has a son of Mavourneen by Bar-caldine, and he is of the same age as Sain thirteen years.. Both Sain and Voter are among the twenty leading sires of this year, as they were last year. Sain this year stands first in the list to number of winners and races won, but is second to the dead Commando in amount of money won by his get, which again places him first in the ranks of living sires. Voter is fifth in the list as to money won by his get, but in the matter of average winnings, by which some breeders choose to determine the class of stallions, he ranks far above Sain. Voters seven winners have averaged nearly 1,000, while Sains thirty-three winners have averaged a few dollars more than ,0C0. .Mr. Keene, as is well known, has for the past half dozen years or more been discarding marcs of the breeding best adapted to service by Sain, and it would seem that he would be compelled to buy back these mares or others of like breeding to be successful in getting winners from Sain. Sain is an inbred Galopin horse, being by St. Serf, son of St. Simon, son of Galopin, and out of The Task, daughter of Satchel by Galopin. A great many of the mares at, Castleton Stud have the Galopin strain, and, according to the ideas of Major Daingerfield, could not be successfully mated with Sain, no holds that such union would mean too much Galopin blood, and that too much Galopin blood means heady horses. Sain is a horse much admired in Kentucky, as elsewhere, but the majority of breeders there are of the opinion that he. would not be as successful iu any other stud as at Woodlands, where Mr. Sehreiber has collected a grand band of American mares abundantly suited to him. g The following is the standing of the twenty leading stallions, based on the figures of this years racing to and including October 23, but taking into account only first moneys and seconds and thirds In stakes: Races Total Sire.
