. , StockwelVs Championship Chances Ballot s Gporf. Son, from Staying Stock, but Possibly Not Good Enough to Win the Big Latonia Race By EXILE Did not I write at the outset of this series that in all probability a fresh horse would win the Latonia Championship? Such an one is Stockwoll, which appears to have just found his racing legs. Although during the spring meeting at Lexington he gave a most creditable display when finishing second to St. Bernard for the .Frankfort Purse, Stockwell made a holy show of the band pited against him on his last appearance here and or being sent to Latonia threw another main whe he finished ahead of Sway and Pastoureau for a ; mile and an eighth go. Then lie has just recorded a snperior feat in easily winning the Twin City Handicap at a mile and five-eighths. Just how good is Sto kwell it is impossible to tell. A stout, thick-mur,fcled colt, his conformation does not indicate st:niina. What does his breeding suggest? As is Lord Brighton, so is Stockwell, a son of the Heiiiiit liner Ballot and his dam Janice, a useful sort herself, a daughter of the stout bred Midlothian, which in his two-year- old days won the Brocklesby Stakes at Lincoln and two other races, and as a four-year-old won the Goodwood Stewards Cup and Chesterfield Cup, both sprint races. Yet, I have never heard of Midlothians get being deficient in stamina, nor his son, tlie lion-hearted and long enduring Sir Walter. Janice is bred as is Sir Walter, both of them from daughters of Joe Hooker. Many the good distance runner in the days that are gone that came from this Minnie Mansfield branch of the Argentile, No. 9 family, but of late years no first rater lias put in an appearance and what with his Hermit descent and stout and even portly conformation, I cannot make out Stockwell, despite his recently acquired winning ways, the winner of the Latonia Championship, although conceding him to be dangerous, ilis pedigree: . ...
