The Derby season of 1923 is dawning and we will be in the thick of it almost before we can realize the fact. This being so, it I will be of interest to cast a retrospective j glance at the Derbies of last year. The I writer has. accordingly, after considerable, some of it difficult, research, colated the j facts concerning the most important Derbies decided in 1922 and presents their principal j results in the condensed tabulation given 1 above. This is, he believes, the first time that a table of this nature has ever been attempted, hence it is something of a novelty. Arranged in their alphabetical order, they circumnavigate the globe, taking us also to the under side of it, in Australasia and South Africa. Thirteen different Derbies are included, two of them New Zealand and South Africa were run late in 1921, but count in those countries as of the 1922 season. Had; it been possible, still others would have been. ] but complete details about the Austrian. Bel- I gian and one or two other European classics were unobtainable. The same was true of South America. Of events of this nature in North America, only the Kentucky and La-tonia Derbies are included from the 1". S. A., and the Cuban at Havana. The Canadian Derby was omitted from the fact that it is a race for Canadian-bred animals exclusively, hence of narrow scope. In addition, although not raced until the month of July, it is not at the orthodox Derby distance of a mile and a half, but at ten furlongs. Finally, it was won by a gelding, making the result of little interest to breeders. MANY DIFFERENT DISTANCES. Strictly speaking a "Derby" at less than the true Derby distance is not really a Derby. There is a certain anomalous aspect to the race. However, the Cuban Derby was included, though only of a mile and a furlong, because of its being run so early in the year, March 26. On this basis, the Kentucky Derby, despite its great prestige, is not a truly representative race. It is included because of its prestige, however. All other races quoted are at a mile and a half, except the German and Hungarian, which were each at 2,400 metres: a mile and a half being equal to 2,413 1-2 metres — there are 1.609 metres to the English mile. A word relative to the values given. They ha,ve been carefully calculated according to the rates of exchange for 1922 given by the "Annalist." of New York. In each instance the highest rate of the year was adopted. For instance, the pound sterling. English. fluctuated during 1922 between .f l 1-2 and .17 in value. The franc of France reiehed its highest rate of exchange at 9.37 cents, but fell as low at times as 6.81 1-4. The lire of Italy ranged in value from 5.55 1-2 down to 3.83 1-1. The highest rate was invariably used in reckoning all stake values. Sums which were very imposing in Europe in currencies shrunk terribly in these computations. The worst cases, of course, were those of Germany and Hungary. The German Derby was worth 225,000 marks to the winrer. hut Um highest rate of exchange on the mark for 1922 was but .60 1-4 cents, so in our money Hausfreund won only J 1,356. In Hungary the depreciation caused an event worth 140.000 marks to decline to an amount;bl. to accurately estimate in American money. Iim OF thi: WINNERS. The breeding of these thirteen Derby win ners is given herewith in tabulated form, thus affording a conspectus of the various lines of blood that produced them in which resper-t the exhibit is unique and the firs of it-: kind ever assembled. Much space could be consumed in comments upon these pedigrees, but anything analytical must be eschewed. One or two brief comments will, however, be offered. The range of top-lines is very wide, there betas "° h?ss than nine different ones represented. Four different lines claim two winners each, viz: Bend Or line — Thilto-deaux I.atonia Derby and Eavendel II. Hungarian Derby — I.avendtl II.. it may be ■teattOMd, also won the Austrian Derby; Hampton line — Whlttier Victorian Derby and Enthusiasm New Zealand Derby; Carbine line— Spike Island Irish Derby and Dignitary South African Derby 1 ; Melton line — Mehzzo da Forli Italian Derby and Rivoli Australian Derby. It should be noted in passing, however, that Best Man, granelsire e.f Mduzzo da Forli. was of disputed paternity, his sire being either Melton or Ormonde. th * latter "preferred.* But if really by Ormonde, it would make a third count for the Bend Or line, and leave the Melton line with but one representative. The lines with hut one winner each are: Barcal-dine line. Captain Cuttle English Derby; Hermit line — Morvieh Kentucky Derby; Isonomy line — Hausfreund German Derby; Kins Tom line— Rebuke .Cuban Derby; St. Simon line — Ramus French Derby. In the female line there is almost as wide a diversity— in a way a still wider one. 1sing. for convenience, the Bruce Ix we numerals, we find three members of the No. 14 line; two each of the No. 2 and No. 5 families; and one each of the No. 1, No. 3, No. 4. No. 22, No. 23 and No. 27 families. But when we examine the three No. 14 horses, to-wit: Ramus French, Spike Island Ireland and Thibodeaux Eatonia, we find that we must go far back of anything shown by the tabulations to arrive at a common direct maternal ancestress — so far. that the community of No. 14 blood shared by them is really not worth mention. The same thing is true of the two No. 2 horses, Eavendel II. Hungary and Mel-ozzo da Forli Italy and the two No. 5 horses. Whittier Victorian and Rivoli Australian. The No. 1 family horse is Morvieh Kentucky; the No. 3 horse is Hausfreund Germany; the No. 4 horse is Dignitary South African; the No. 22 horse is Captain Cuttle England; the No. 21 horse is Rebuke Cuban; and the No. 27 horse, Enthusiasm New Zealand. The pedigree analyst will take pleasure in dissecting these genealogies and tracing the influences of various great progenitors, particularly such as Bend Or, St. Simon, Ison-omy, Barcaldine, Hermit, Hampton, etc. RIVOI.I— AUSTRALIAN DERBY.
