FRENCH MARES AT BELMONT Matrons From A. K. Macombers French Stud Resting Up. Wide Interest In Coming Sale Shown by Humorous Inquiries from All Tarts of the Country Many Breeders to Attend. o NEW YORK. N. Y., December 4. A few days of rest has had a beneficial effect on the brood mares from A. K. Macombers Haras du Quesnay, which are to be sold on the evening of December 15 at Durlands Riding Academy. When they reached port on Wednesday last they narrowly escaped the storm which buffeted the President Wilson. It is only a question of a few days until they will have all the bloom of coat and sprightliness of action they possessed before their departure from France. Nothing more ideal in the way of their temporary quarters could be had than the big roomy private stable of their owner at Belmont Park, where they are now in charge of the horse show expert, John Tierney, who will have them in the pink of condition by the evening of the sale. PROMINENT BREEDERS EXPECTED. If inquiries concerning the shipment mean anything the attendance at Durlands on the night of the sale will be large. George A. Bain, who will cry the bids, is confident that a special car will be needed to bring the Kentucky delegation. Among those expected from the Blue Grass country are Mis3 Elizabeth Daingerfield, Edward R. Bradley, A. B. Hancock, D. W. Scott, J. B. Gorham, Thomas Cromwell, Thomas Piatt, John S. Barbee, H. P. Headley and J. C. Milam. John E. Madden, whose breeding establishment is located near Lexington, is as much a resident of New York as Kentucky, and he, too, will be on hand. From Virginia, Captain P. M. Walker, Will-lam Garth, Kenneth Gilpin, Reld Riley, Walter Crunden, Raymond Belmont, General James B. Buchanan, H. Rozier Dulany and others are expected, while Maryland will bo represented by Robert J. Walden, Samuel D. Riddle and Walter M. Jeffords, whose farm is at Berlin; William Woodward from historic Belair and others with smaller nurseries. EDWARD CEBRIAN TO ATTEND. California will have its contingent headed by Edward Cebrian. Breeders like Joseph E. and George D. Widener are so close to the metropolis that, while their establishments are in Kentucky and Pennsylvania, respectively, they may be claimed for New York. The same is true of New Jersey with the Rancocas and Brookdale establishments looming so largely on the racing horizon. The fact that many of the offerings are young dams by great sires from producing families has not been lost sight of by the breeders and fanciers of the country. Daughters of Spearmint, Sardanapale. Maintenon, Alcantara II., Prestige. Bruleur, Prince Palatine, Negofol. Sea Sick, Rabelais and Buckwheat all have a place waiting for them in the studs of American breeders. Their value to American bloodstock interests is enhanced by their having been bred to sires like Maintenon, MacKinley, Star Hawk, War Cloud, Isard II., Sandy Hook, Sea Sick and Torloisk. e
