GREAT ENGLISH STUD TO BE REDUCED. One of the greatest and most profitable breeding studs of England is to be cut down, and of this "Tin- Special Commissioner" says in London SKrts-m:iu : "Sir John Robinson has decided to materially reduce the Worksop Manor Stud, as he feels the anxiety of such a large concern is almost too much for him. but his wish is to sell privatolj-and I know there are many people who prefer to buy privately and not to have the prices given publicly recorded. Sir John Robinson has no fewer than forty-four mares and lie would. I believe, reduce theni by one-half if it can be done on reasonable terms. Any that he may sell he is prepared to warrant in foal and It is needless to say that they hav. been mated with first-class sires. He would also part with eight or nine, foals of this year. His projwsal should appeal to buyers, as it Is a novelty to warrant mares in foal, and it gets over a great difficulty which foreign buyers often feel when trying to avoid mistakes on such a question. For this "reason 1 have very great pleasure in making known what Sir John Robinson is prepared to offer them If they will go to Worksop with a view to business."
