SAYS SPRINTERS MAKE EEST SIRES. Edward Kulton, the English Owner, Expresses Some Interesting Ideas on the Subject. BdWard Hultoa recently sail sane interesting things 0:1 the subject of selecting racing sires. "The ideal test of merit i; the fast mile." he dec-hired, "and the hor~e that can succeed at this distance among the- best class and in the best time is the horse that is wanted to bread from. It will be- found t! ::t the best stallions have proved their -peed at about one mile. They may, of course, have subsequently shewn that they could stay longer distances as .veil. But 110 great -ire has licked peed. It is the essential. Even hmg-distance racers, pure stayers — 1 meaa heroes of one pace-. but without speeci — have 111 v:r been successful sires. My point is. it is not the pure stayer, with only one attribute, that makes the stallion."
