FOUR SIRES NOW IN THEIR PRIME Lines of Descent Resulting in the Excellent Horses Marathon, Sea King-, Transvaal and Hessian. Marathon, Sea King, Transvaal and Hesslon constitute n group of sires Influential In our breeding and now in tho prime of horse life. Marathon is the senior of the four by one year, and Just now is best represented In our racing by the extremely fast horse Jack Hare Jr. A few years back another son of his, Marlon Goosby, was quite an effective race horse nnd nlako winner. Ills breeding is of the best, and ho Is full of staying blood. Rightly mated he should some day send a great, cut horse to tho races. It will be observed that llend Or Is especially prominent In his pedigree, which In four generations also Includes the other Epsom Derby winners Doncaster, ialnpln, Shotover, Thor-maiiby, Macaroni and Hermit. It reads as follows: grlIaorJw-topa, 5? fJ UongoRose..n;iCya Z frnAnrnnl I SWCCtmCat . I Tiger i -"nenroni jocose Lily... "I .. The Cure ,o . , 2 J . L Poll? Aruwi.

Ills sire, .Persimmon, was a truly great rati; horse, winner of the Epsom Derby and Doncaster St. Leger and a highly successful sire when his racing days were over. Sea King, represents u concentration of Eclipse blood. So far he imn sired no truly groat race horse, but his sons and daughters race usefully and some of better class should crop up presently. There is plenty of . Herod and Matchem blood In this country to furnish him it suitable affinity, and his descent.

He was not -the equal of his half-brother Pennant as a race horse, but was better than the average and won good races for his breeder, the late James R. Keene. From the time his progeny entered racing Transvaal has been one of our proved successful sires. This year he Is ably represented by a number of excellent campaigners. Including such as King Gorln, Blackie Daw, Boniface and the fleet filly Violet Bonnie. These are good enough for anybody and he may do better still. Ills lineage is: f Alarm r,., IIImyar L"!
