I JOIN RANKS OF BREEDERS Crunden and Frost of Middleburg, Va., Raising Thoroughbreds. Wcll-Brcd Young Stallion Brumado, "Which Heads Now Stud, Is Son of Prominent French Sire Maintenon. t. RICHMOND, Va., November 29. Crunden and Frost are recent recruits to the ranks of thoroughbred breeders. Owning adjoining farms with a total of about 600 acres in London County, Virginia, near the Middle-burg Township, the firm was organized about a year ago. Its purpose is to utilize the farms for the raising of thoroughbreds. During the last year they have acquired a small but select band of mares, which have been bred to the best stallions available in their neighborhood. The mares now owned by the firm include : Sis L., ch, 9, by Hastings Carmen Sylva, by St. Carlo. Bred to Trap Rock. Pancake, b, 3, by Peter Pan Phenicia, by Trout- lcck. Bred to Gnome. Elastique II., b. 5, by Yankee Caoutchouc, by Galore. Bred to Gnome. Queen Menilek, eh, G, by Superman Queen, by Goldcrest. Bred to Fayette. Cynthiana, ch, 3, by Aeronaut mil Top, by Clifford. Bred to Danger Bock. Camba, ch, 7, by Aeronaut Bettie Bouncer, by Filigrane. Bred to Bard of Hope. Miss Klein, b, 9, by Stalwart Big Goose, by Tit- honus. Bred to Danger Rock. Lady Edwina, ch, 10, by Lochryan Miss Bobs, by Florizel II. Bred to Cock o the Walk. To head their stud they recently purchased the exceedingly well-bred young stallion Brumado. Brumado was a high-class handicap horse in France. Among his victories are the Deauvillc Grand Handicap, Prix du Bois de Boulogne and the Prix de la Bourse. He has won 7,575. He was bred by the late W. K. Vanderbilt and is a brother to the high-class stake winner Brumelli, winner of many French features. Brumado is by Maintenon Brume, by Prestige, sire of Sardanapale, one of the greatest horses France produced. His second dam was Buela, which won twelve races in this country, including the Latonia Oaks, before she was taken to France by Mr. Vanderbilt. Buela comes from a family which produced such sterling performers as Aris-tides, winner of the first Kentucky Derby; Rambler, Topsy, Onatas, Maribert, Robin Hood and Lieber Karl.
