SEAGRAM STABLES STARS To Be Seen Under Colors at Blue Bonnets Meeting. Which Will Open Saturday. MONTREAL, Que., August 31. Formidable members of the powerful stable of the. Seagram brothers of Waterloo, Ontario province, that will come to Montreal for the fall session of the Montreal Jockey Club at Blue Bonnets are Redstone, Parisian Diamond Brilliant Jester, Gallipot, Golden Sphere, Quanah, Kings Court, Nickname, Kentish Boy, Lady Meave, Wakefield, Arragosa, Flowerful, Floralia, Impersonator, Mode and Target. The Seagrams have greatly expanded the breeding establishment of their father, the late Joseph E. Seagram, organized at Waterloo, by bringing in from Great Britain and Ireland and the United States much new thoroughbred blood, and they are now among the largest producers of Ontario. In Golden Sphere and Brilliant Jester, the former a son of Oliver Goldsmith and Sphere of Influence, by Collar, they own two of the best English horses that have come into Canada in a decade. Golden Sphere, a splendid individual, which is ultimately to serve at the Seagram Stud with Brilliant Jester, has through two years been the most formidable of the Canadian-owned distance running rivals of the stars of the stable of Commander J. K. L. Ross. Last year Golden Sphere won the Hamilton Derby, beating Planet, Pimlicc, Bluffer, Bruce Dudley and Irish Jig, and he beat Brilliant Jester, Irish Jig, Registrar. Sagamook and Estero at Toronto in the Seagram Cup Handicap.- In the course of-the last spring meeting at Woodbine he won the Kings Gold Cup, a ,000 race of one mile and a quarter, and the 10,000 Toronto Cup, a handicap of one mile and an eighth In the King Edward Gold Cup race he defeated Registrar, Bygone Days, Mock Orange, Bunga Buck and War Zone. In tli3 Toronto Cup he whipped Boniface, Registrar, Brilliant Jester, Bunga Buck and Fair Gain. In the Hamilton Cup he beat Registrar and Fair Gain over a mile and a quarter course, which he ran in 2:04, record time. He has since beaten Finery, Firebrand, Despair and Grace Mayers in the Maginn Memorial at Fort Erie, covering one mile in 1:38. Golden Sphere would have cut a conspicuous figure in the long-distance racing of the" Saratoga meeting if the Seagram brothers had followed the custom of their father for years of going to Saratoga to race. Redstone and Parisian Diamond are the Seagram horses that will prepare for the Lord Byng Handicap. This race, a gallop of one mile and a quarter, of ,500, is the best for horses three years old and over that will be run Saturday. Redstone, a Canadian-bred son of Decision and Aunt Maude, beat Commander Ross Finery. Duke John, Tailor Maid, Martin A. Noonan, Citizen and Ravenswood at Ottawa last Friday in the Autumn Purse. Parisian Diamond, an English-bred stallion, by Louvois Gem Gem, defeated Bullet Proof and Despair at Fort Erie on August 9 in a fast-run raco of one mile and seventy yards, on a heavy track. He and Redstone are just coming to their best form. The Seagram candidates for the Hochelaga Handicap, Blue Bonnets best fall special for two-year-olds, are Nickname, a filly by St. Amant Nickel Neck, and Arragosa, a colt by Argosy Grey Flier. Both are English bred. Nickname has been unusually successful in Canada recently. She won at Windsor on July 25 and at Hamilton on August 3. Quanah, Kings Court and Gallipot are recent winners at Connaught Park and Ottawa.
