Lady Aiiieri-n- and I.o-d Belvoir is quite a notable stud dame. Palotta dil not exactly startle the racing world "ii the tint. In four seasons she won two races the Drogbedn Memorial Stakes at the Curragh at three and th» Lord Lieutenants Plate at Cork at four. In the December of her four year old days she was sold for 200 guineas to Mr. Parkinson, acting on behalf of A. H. Ledlie. in whose stud she has ever since been. In all. the winnings of Pniettas nroda -amount to 18,29? BOTereigns, and if we add the sale prices realized by Trepida CJ.ooo guineas, l/n-rt Belvoir 1.550 guineas, and Lady Americas 2,300 guineas, we aeo that the original sum of 200 guineas laid out on the pmi I ham of Palotta has re suited in a return of 21.010 sovereigns. And, of course, there are further possibilities about th • produce of the old mare, who together with her daughter. Americas Girl, are located at Mr. Can tillons stud at Beaver bodge, near Cork, the pair being tin property of Mr. Ledlie. on Wednesday, January 1. Palotta will reach her twentieth year, and wonderfully fresh and well she is considering the burden of her age. She visited Spearmint last year, but unfortunately she broke vary late, her hut service in the year being as far advanced as June. In 1013 she goes lo Naledi. a SOU of William the Third and Ornament. Last season Palotta prosed true to Desmond, to whom she foaled a bay or brown lillv which has been called Lady Catherine. The first horn of Americas Girl is a chestnut filly, the mares own color and Sundridges color to that sire tin- coming yearling owes her parentage and she has been named Lady Josephine. There am great possibilities about th.- Ladies Josephine and Catherine, and WC need not yet write "Finis" to tin winnings of the produce of Palotta. — Loudon Sporting Life.
