BLUE GRASS STATE NEWS Forsythes Faith in Omar Khayyam California Breeder Edward Gebrian an Arrival. LEXINGTON, Ky., August 2. Fred A. Forsythe, the man who bred George Smith, Fountainblue, High Private, Dorante and other good horses, and who has determined to go back into the business of producing thoroughbreds, after having been for several years in the automobile business, will leave at the end of tho week for Saratoga, to attend the sales of yearlings. "I am sorry I will not be able to be present at the sale of tho first of the get of Omar Khayyam," said he, "for to me they are most attractive. I do not think any other horse in this country ever bred a better first crop. Certainly no horse in my time ever has. I think they are the grandest lot of individuals by one sire that I ever saw, and perhaps I ever will see, unless the son of Marco and Lisma docs it over again. They are of a type and each is worthy of consideration from men who are seeking racing material. I think A. B. Hancock was wise in his purchase of these colts and fillies from Mrs. Viau, for they are certain to bring good prices." Colonel H. C. Whitehead, who for several months has been stationed at Omaha doing special work for the War Department, ha3 been returned to his post at the head of the purchasing and distributing station of the United States Remount Service here. Ken-tuckians are glad that Colonel Whitehead is back on the job, for he is a keen horseman and is generally popular with horsemen. Thomas Piatt left this morning for Saratoga to remain until after the yearling sales. His son, Thomas Piatt, Jr., ha3 recovered from an illness and is able to be about his duties at the farm. Edward Cebrian arrived today from California and is at Keeneland Farm to see his thoroughbreds. He is highly pleased w:th the ten yearlings he is sending to Saratoga Saturday to be sold August 16. The most attractive one of his offerings is the colt by Troutbeck Bramble Rose sister to American Ace. It is predicted by good judges that this fellow will be one of the top prices of the season at the Spa. He will go to Saratoga Friday. BUEEDEKS ON TO SARATOGA. John S. Barbee will leave for Saratoga Thursday. The master of Glen Helen Stud expects to remain until the conclusion of the sales. Johnny Miller left this morning for Belmont Park with the A. L. Aste and Henry Waterson yearlings. Upon his return he will take King James, War Star and Franks Daughter to Saratoga. They are at T. B. Jones Crystal Spring Farm and are to be sold with other thoroughbreds belonging to the Henry T. Oxnard estate. Thomas B. Jones, owner of Crystal Spring Farm, has sold the yearling bay filly by Peter Quince Whats Left, by Wadsworth, to Fred Courson, former owner of Clio Cho and Pindar Peel. Major Thomas C. McDowell reports the death of the two-year-old bay filly by The Manager Kings Daughter. Death was due to catarrhal fever. Early in the year Major McDowell lost the bay filly by The Manager Water Blossom, so this leaves him only Away and the bay colt of Affable to represent The Manager among the two-year-olda of 1922. Major McDowell confirms the price 0,000 paid by Frederick Johnson for Dream Maker, son of Manager Waite, which stallion has the distinction of being the sire of Lady Boss, winner of nine races, the greatest number of successes for any two-year-old of thia year. Thomas Piatt received a telegram this morning from John D. Carr, saying that the Carr and Piatt consignment of yearlings to tho sale had arrived at Saratoga in splendid condition after a thirty-six hour run from Lexington.
