w j YOUNG ENGLISH SIRES SUCCEEDING The first of the progeny of The Tetrarch to start was the gray filly Tetrarcliia, by The Tetrarch — Plamagc. Starting in the Spring Two -Year-Old Plate at Worcester April Id. as the proiierty of . Iadv Nelson, she led all the way and won with ease ■ a lmgth and a half from thirteen opiKi-neuts. This pleasing occurence led I»iidon Sportsman to say: "At Worcester the Karl of Coventry. , who i- greatly interested ill nomenclature, was jisked in the paddock as to the name of Tetrarcliia. His lord-hip fplied that the filly was named by W. "• Maiming, who unfortunately died last week . and that aa a Tetrarch was a governor of a province. s„ •Tetrarcliia" represented the province it self. Sir Charles Nugent had no exalted idea of the fillys Merit, ea-ily though she won. as the race mm* run. iMit l he in. re fact that she was the first representative of her sire on the race course is sufficient to how that her sires merit is duocd in his st.M-k. Onlv the other day. by the way, we saw the first of the get of Adam Bede, the Bar mill I illy, run a dead heat at Newmarket for the AataVy Plate with Yaia Bream, and we then-fore have. j,t ;,i| events, two stallions wiiose stock have won at the fir-i time of asking." *
