THE UNSPARING REAPER TAKES HIS INEVITABLE HARVEST OF DEATH AMONG THOSE IDENTIFIED WITH THE TURF The unsparing reaper took his inqvitable harvest of extinguished life in 191S from the ranks of men connected with racing in various lines of endeavor. Venerable in years, James W. Guest was probably the senior of all the owners who went on their last way. Long ago he was the breeder and owner of the grand race horse Terra Cotta. Another who had lived many years and bulked largely in breeding and racing was Col. Milton Young, long owner of the McGrathiana Stud near Lexington, Ky. Two men who for years "raced good horses east and west under the name of Turney Bros, and were of good repute on the turf died late in the year at their homes in Kentucky. Another decedent well known was William F. Schulte, who. besides being a breeder and owner, was at one time president of the New Louisville Jockey Club. William O. Scully, known east and west as a man of infinite wit; Louis A. Cella. extensively interested in his time as part owner of many race tracks and many useful racers; Capt. R. R. Rice of Arkansas, prominent in the racing over western tracks twenty years back; H. C. Hallenbeck, owner of the Kentucky Derby winner Wortli and other good racers; Grover C. Baker, W. Hundley Baker and Jesse Lewisohn were others of prominence in the affairs of the turf who answered the last call. Of the trainers who died, Jacob Pincus was the veteran and high in f:yne and esteem in England as well as in this country. Matthew S. Allen and Charles T. Patterson also ranked high as trainers and in their days prepared some of our greatest race horses for their careers on the track. 1 Xo jockey of the first rank is in the years mortuary list, out among those who paid the great debt were several who gave their lives doing the part of true men in the Great War across the seas. Unto them all honor. In England Lord Falmouth and Sir John A. Miller, the latter owner of Rock Sand when he won the. Triple Crown and the former owner of Clarissimus when he won the Two Thousand Guineas in 1910. were the most prominent owners who died. Fred Ricknby, a masterly jockey, along with such riders of less fame as Bara, Griffin, Holdsworth, Loader, Markham, Tarr, Tate and Watts, died gallantly in battle.
