SOMETHING MORE ABOUT HURRY ON. In describing Harry On as likely to prove himself the- best really big weight -carrying horse since Btockwefl I am not forgetting Ormonde and Mint-Ing, but Ormondes a lad infirmity rules him out of the competition, and Minting. I hough it wonderful weight carrier with prodigious speed, had faulty shoulders end could hardly be rmseed as a stayer, hough he did win the Graad Prix. Hurry On. s- tar tis can be judge 1 at present, will show to full advantage over a cap coarse if he ever gets t In; chaace, and in this coiiueetioii I .-tin glad to note that he is going into the Clarehave-n stable, for he-.i!l there have every chance to develop the best that is in hint. When we consider what a big colt he is aad that he is a young one foaled May 7, it is easy to understand that there are in his case |uite unu-ual possibilities of improvement. It is to lie not d. too. that his tap-root is Duty, by Rifle-man. to which also several of Prince Solty-koffs best stayers traced — Sheen, for example Mori-over. Harry Oils granelam was by another first rate stave-. Tiuuiei. which wen the Graad Prix for Prince SoltykotT. Thus Hurry On has a solid foundation for stamina, and his paterae] grandam. Lady VOllkins, could stay for ever. He cornea, too. in tlte direct male line from Rarealdine, which I ought to have remembered before now when writing of tiny horse as being the finest and list really big one since Stockwe.I. There was no doubt about BereaaSbat s stamina any more then ah- ut his great siz-- ami power. Curry has had to do with many goeid horse-s in his time, including Done-aster and Bead Or. but I think he ranks Bareajdtae as the best. — W. Allison in London Sportsman.
