GREAT ARRAY OF ENTRIES Nominations for Pimlico Futurity of "1926 Includes Some from English Breeders. PIMLICO, Md., Nov. 12. The Pimlico Futurity of 1926 closed Monday, November 5, 1923, with a gratifying list of entries, which are now being classified and arranged for publication, numbering about 1,613. Every stock farm of note is represented and the number of small breeders on the list shows the wide extent of the thoroughbred Industry. Nominations have also been made of some of the most prominent British breeders, among whom may be mentioned such well-known names as the Sledmere Stud, Lords Manton and Furness, Sir Richard C. Brooks and Charles T. Pulley, who have made thirty-two entries in all to this rich stake. Of these, the Sledmere Stud founded in Yorkshire by Sir Talton Sykes and now conducted by his widow Lady Sykes with the assistance of Mr. Henry A. Cholomondily, an authority on breeding, is probably the most roted. From the famous stud, Lcmonora sold for 516,500; Westward Ho, for 7,500; Blue Ensign, for 2,500 as yearlings. Thirteen of the Sledmere yearlings averaged over 1,000 one year and sixteen yearlings over 9,000 in another. This years sensational two-year-old Mumtaz Mahal, purchased as a yearling for about 5,000 by the Aga Khan, is a product of the Sledmere Stud. Lemonora, winner of the Donchaster Champagne Stakes, was owned by Mr. Joseph "Watson, father of the present Lord Mantor, who has made entries for the Pimlico Futurity. His horses are trained by Alex Taylor, considered the dean of English trainers, and he takes his title from Mantor, one of the most completely equipped racing and breeding establishments in the world. Lord Furness, another nomination of the Pimlico Futurity, owns the famous mare Salamander, by St. Frusquin Electra, by Eager, which was purchased from L, Neu-man for the record price for a brood mare of ,000. The Furness Stud, although only started since the war is rich in blood lines and no expense has been spared to get together the best available mares. Another of the English nominations to the Pimlico Futurity is Charles T. Pulley, owner of Poor Boy, the French-bred sire of Admiral Cary T. Graysons Scoop and also of Oisean Bleu, a well-known son of Gallinule, some of -whose offspring have been imported to the United States. Sir Richard C. Brooks has also made entries and it looks as if the International match race was beginning to bear fruit in a closer co-operation between the sportsmen of both countries.
