BAD GERMAN THOROUGHBREDS. German turf authorities are worried by the poor showing made by German-bred race horses the past season. Investigation shows that systematic breeding of German thoroughbred stock has been going on by the Austrian, breeders, who pick up the best of the stallions as soon as they show form: Steps will be taken to stop, or at least regulate the sale of stallions out of Germany. The French policy now, as opposed to the German, is to buy and not sell thoroughbreds. Several high-class stallions have just been purchased by the government from , English breeders. It is altogether probable that the same course will be pursued In Germany.
