ROSS STABLES WINNINGS Eight Seasons of Racing Has Yielded the Canadian Turfman 646163 The entrance of J K L Ross Into American racing in 1914 was in a modest way and attended with meager results Nor did his racing opera ¬ tions in 1915 attract any great attention But after that his ascension in the racing firmament was steady tintlj in 1918 and 1919 he was at the zenith as the leading American winning owner for two successive years He had the right idea about the way to acquire a winning stable and did not allow money to stand In the way when the possibility of buying a real race horse was in sight To tlfis wisu policy was due the racing of such superb specimens as Cudgel Sir Barton and Billy Kelly in hii colors to say nothing of such as Boni ¬ face Milkmaid and others of high class classOne One of the strangest features of his meteoric career as an owner was that in 1920 when his horses amassed by far the greatest total in stable earnings and were the highest ever placed to his credit he still had to play second fiddle to the wonderful H P Whitney Stable of that year yearSo So far the Ross record lias been in the main that of an owner but it is quite probable that ere many years pass he will acquire fame as a suc ¬ cessful breeder also He has a superior collection of brood mares In his possession and with such a wonderful son of Broomstick as Cudgel and Star Shoots best son Sir Barton as well as such an already highly successful sire as Marathon is splendidly equipped to do great tilings in racing presently with horses of his own breeding breedingThe The record of the Ross Stable including all races up to and including those of Friday May 28 is shown below Year 1st 2d 3d Amount Leading Winner 1914 0 0 1 30 Yorkville 1915 10 5 3 C095 Bryudown 1915 15 13 10 17947 Damrosch 1917 22 20 22 22190 Priscilla Mullins 1918 04 52 57 99179 Cudgel 1919 G4 41 31 209303 Sir Barton 1920 118 115 V4 250580 Boniface 40827 Billy Kelly Totals 312 2GO 194 040103
