W. P. Smith, Irish Breeder, Dies; Owned Salisbury, Stake Winner By Special Correspondent. DUBLIN, Ireland. — Death recently claimed another prominent and respected owner-breeder in William P. Smith, Church View, Navan. For almost half a century he was a familiar and popular figure t most of the Irish race meetings. He was a successful breeder of thoroughbred stock and his yearlings invariably fetched good prices at Messrs. Goffs, Balls-bridge, Dublin, sales. He was the breeder of Salisbury, winner of the Irish Two Thousand Guineas for C. L. Mackean, who bought the colt as a yearling for ,500. Salisbury was by The Boss son of Orby out of an unnamed mare by Phodesian, from Sanover, and two more of the named mares progeny — a filly by Bachelors Double and a colt by Beresford — were sold for ,250 and ,000, respectively, as yearlings. Salisburys dam also foaled Boss-over, which mare, when mated with th» 1930 Derby Stakes winner Blenheim now at the stud in America threw that good race horse Wyndham, winner of more than 2,275 in stakes, when carrying the silks of Miss Dorothy Paget, who now is using him for breeding purposes.
