ENGLISH VIEW OF WHISK BROOM In my previous notes on the coming threeyearold reference has more than once been made to the Americanbred Whisk Broom the chestnut son of Broomstick and Audience which carried Harry Payne Whitneys colors so creditably during the season that when the handicapping eouiniitee issued the Free Handicap for twoyearolds on the eve of the New ¬ market Honghtou Meeting the American colt was put on the same mark 118 pounds as Admiral Hawkc receiving five pounds from Lemberg and eight pounds from Nell Gow There was much to like about this usefullooking chestnut when stripped for the Holiday Two YearOld Stakes at Sandown Parks August Bank Holidav fixture and good judges marked him down as the likely recipient of a tine race when more thoroughly trained lie was not at all fancied but his trainer rightly conjectured that a little acquaintance with the business of racinif would be beneficial to the colt and lit finishing fourth he did better than the hot favorite Flori ¬ culture which was left as of course was the money of his backers at the starting post which the bookmakers ought to call the Tom Tiddlers ground for there was sunk all the money invested ou 4K other candidates for races during the past season with a fair proportion of good favorite among them That the clever American trainer Joyner had calculated aright was demonstrated at Whisk Brooms next outing for that eyeopener at Samfown Park had brought him on immensely and when the colt was saddled on the Knavesmire at York August three weeks later he went out for the Prince of Wales Plate enjoying the full confidence of his trainer and delighted his owner who with a party of American friends was paying one of his rather infrequent visits to our race courses for II P Whitney has other attractions in the world of siwrtr by a stylish victory Whisk Irx m had something to beat that day too for those connected with Galatine were very confident concerning his chance as subsequent to the latters close fight with Admiral Ilawke referred to yesterday this son of Gallinule and Burgonet had cantered away with the llalnaker Stakes at Goodwood Now with this redoubtable Maher riding the colt the Michel Grove folk would not hear of his defeat but AVhisk Broom had the race won a long way from home Maher on Galntlne made a great effort but at the distance Whisk Brooms trainer joyfully ejaculated Theyll never catch him this time Nor did they and two lengths same was the judges verdict Wool Winders own brother WooIacomlK following Whisk Broom and Galatine past the i ost That was the American colts sole success during the season for he had been a little oft color prior to Doncaster and was not expected to beat the cracks in the Cham ¬ pagne Stakes but Joyner had got him fairly right again later In the autumn when he did quite well enough in the Middle Park and Dewhurst Plates to engender hopes that he will have a good Cghtinir chance for the Two Thousand Guineas should all go well with liim and it is wortli remembering that these Americanbred horses will be more dcclimatized in the coining season If Whisk Broom does train on sufficiently well to beat our colts in the tirst oC the classics the victory will be popular for his own ¬ ers Eton blue jacket ami brown cap are well known and respected on our courses as is the owner him ¬ self in oilier branches of sport Augur in Sport ¬ ing Life
