Famous Animals at Childwick Bury Please Him — Especially Fancied Fifinella. a BY P. K. COISSKLL. LONDON. Flighted. March ML — A few days ago. in the company of Mrs. Oiffoicl Cochran, i paid a brief visit to Mr. J. B. JoeTs famous Childwicl: Bury SI ud Farm near St. Albans — only about an hours motor tun from I/iinlon. Mr. Cochran was greatly impressed with the beauty of the farm and the thoroughness of all arrangements which were manifest in every direction. Mr. Cochran naturally paid homage to Sun-, star, which he greatly admired. He afterward Inspected a number of si nil ma I roils which were on the horses lit. In a large covered barn close to the stallion box there are- about sixteen barren inaris. who will in elui- course visit Snnstar. Among them were Mr. Jeaehh P. Widen. -rs Dark Sapphire. a daughter of Dark Konald ami llelandiy. and Confection, by Isinglass. The former unfortunately inissee! lo Baaatar this year, and the latter was barren to Cylgael. Dark Sapphire, by the way. has a fine well grown yearling filly by Ship tar. for which reason she is again to be mated with that stallion. In the range of comfortable snug boxes Mr. Coch- ran had ■ look at a number of mares and loals. There were at least two famous mares. Fifinella, the Derby anil Oaks winner of 1910. was nursing a alee but perhaps rather light bay filly foal by Cay Crusader. She. had again been mated with Sunstar. whiih is the sire of her first foal; this is the small filly Filine. which won a couple of races last year. COVETS FIFINELLA, DERBY WINNER. Mr. Cochran offered to take her and her foal if he weie allowed to have his pick of all the mares on the farm: though he confessed that of lhe foals hi preferred the handsome eliestnttt colt by Poly-I mollis — Fle-hette. by Printe Palatine. She lielongs to .Mr. McUr.ifio. This is a strong, well made colt. with a blaze face: a white sock on the near fore and a White stocking on the off hind. He jKissesses all tlie nice qualities of the best ofl-pring of Polymelus aid the stud groom stated that he greatly resembles Huaaorial at the same age SalauiMidra. which was the highest-priced mare eve r sold at auction in Bag land, 80,000 at the De . inbir s.ih- ,r 1920. has a bay e-olt by Sunstar: this i- a yaaagster of good quality, taking after his sir*, but rathe! lightly made. When purchased, the mare was in foal to The Tetranli. and her now yi ailing colt, as a foal, was much like the preseat youngster. Lolil.iss has n promising bay colt by Sunstar. which bears a great resemblance to his sire, as does a brown calt out Of Syndicalism. "She." the dam of "He." and last years Cesarewiteh winner Yitloi. has visited Sunstar. Her foal is a bay colt by Swynford. but it is not one of his best efforts. There are a couple of gray daughters of The IV- trarch on Sunstars list. They belong to Major Mc- Calmont and aie Fourfold, in foal to Pising Ola-s and La Dauphine. in foal to Achtoi. Of course, all the mails mentioned above will be visiting Sun tar By the first tvcl; in March there had been re- ported iie-arly twenty foals by him, which is a great tribute to his virility. B.fore leaving Childwick Bury. Mr. Cochran paid a visit to the other side of the farm and had a fleeting glance, at Black Jester, which is a barde he admired much. Mr. Cohran. while at the Joel stud, told the manager that his had made him thoroughly homesick and that if on his return to London he found no reply to a cable a-king what foals had ai rived at Mount Kisco. two mai.-s were then over- due, another argent cablegram would be dispatched the same eve-tiing. Mr. Co.hian has gone back to France and leaves Uarch 21. A +
