TURF AND STUD IN FOREIGN LANDS. Results of the Haggin-Keene Sales at Buenos Ayres English Racing Statistics. W. Allison writes in the Sportsman about the Haggin-Keene sales expedition to South America: "It may bo remembered that a short time ago a Kreat deal was written concerning elaborate arrangements made with regard to the shipment of a large consignment of thoroughbred stock by Mr. J. B. Haggin. of New York, for public sale in Buenos Ayres. The consignment, including a number of animals, the property of Mr. James R. Keene. was said to have numbered 100. Mr. Uagglns own share of the total shipment was about seventy animals, but only fifty-nine lots comprising seven stallions, seventeen broodmares, and a number of three-year-old fillies, two-year-old fillies, and yearlings were ottered. The consignment was divided into three separate portions, and sold on the 3rd. 10th, and 14th of October. The aggregate amount realized for the whole of the fifty-nine animals was 0,100, which gives an average of SCSO each, and makes one inclined to doubt whether the shipment has paid the actual expenses. "The first lot offered on October 3 included three stallions and nine broodmares. Amongst the former was Dieudonue, for which John Mackey, acting on behalf of Mr. Haggin. gave ,000 in England seven years ago.

It was made up of five broodmares and seventeen three-year-old fillies. These animals fared badly, since the five mares altogether only made .o00. an average of 70 each. The seventeen fillies only fetched ,370. an average of 30 each. Amongst them were daughters of Watercress, Goldfinch. Star Rubv. Order. Mimic. Greenan. Toddington. Kinley Mack. WatercoUJr. and Salvator. The poor average Is only another proof of the objection to American blood entertained by South American breeders, for, with one exception, these fillies had real American pedigrees on thedam!s side, and this exception was from an obscurely-bred English, mare, by Lancastrian, from a daughter of .Donnybrook. her dam by De : i i ! i , Ruyter. Only one of them beat her in regard to price obtained, and this to the extent of 0 only. "The third portion of the consignment was offered on October 14. It included four stallions Arkle, Gerolstein, Shapfell and Goldsplnner. a son of Goldfinch: three broodmares one a daughter of Persimmon, eight two-year-old fillies and eleven year- . ling fillies, all of them by sires mentioned in the foregoing. The total amount realized by these twenty-six animals was 4,270, which gives an average of less than 45 each. The yearling and two-year-old fillies made altogether ,190. the average being about 10.

He shares the wholesome conviction of most sportsmen that it Is immoral to attract the smaller public to racing. He is quite aware that racing will always claim the attention of every class, but that the bookmaker is a far better guardian of public ethics than the lottery disguised under the cloak of a mutual operation and appealing, under such a speeious denomination to those who would not otherwise have been attracted to a race course. Consequently he has denounced the system embodied, by the "totalizator," and appears to favor the lists where ready money is taken. Books are folioed and signed by a delegate of the Belgian Jockey Club. Certain moral and pecuniary guarantees are required fr"om those to whom they are issued, with a guarantee that the. books provided for them contain a full record of their several transactions and they are liable to be recalled for examination at any moment by the officials of the club.
