London Sportsman. I Emil Herz will leave New York today for Lex- ington Kv., for a weeks visit at Glen Helen Stud, J where his stallion Short Grass is standing. Mr. Herz has thirteen foals at the farm, twelve by I Short Grass and one by Spanish Prince. It is said that T. P. Thome will not race in this 0 country next year, as it is his intention to return to France, where he still maintains a breeding establishment, with the stallions Magellan and Le Melior f, at its head. The 0,000 colt Gilroy, recently sold to Captain Dewhurst, was bought for Lord Lascelles, who is c going in for racing on a fairly large scale. His J father. Lord Harewood, is a standby of the Eng- J lish turf. Galrov cost 425 as a yearling and was i sold afterward to W. Clark for 4,000. i Ilelford, a five-year-old English horse, by Loiia-wand Aunt Hetty, sold a year ago to an Indian turfman by Sir Edward Hulton, the English newspaper owner, has had much success in India and has been matched against Dark Legend to run in a Calcutta race for 50,000 rupees about 10,oOO a side. , , , After Major W. W. Astors fine three-year-old Buchan had won the Champion Stakes t Newmarket. England, October 14, an offer of j,000 was refused for him." It was in the Champion Stakes that Tlie Panther disgraced himself. He was equal favorite with Buchan at 2 to 1 and refused i to run, finishing fourth.
