G. A. Dorland Buys Farm; To Be Known at Roseland Property fs Rose-Jewell Place Of 47 Acres, Near Lexington LEXINGTON. Ky., June 24.— The Rose-Jewell Farm, on the Russell Cave Pike here, has been sold to Grant A. Dorland. of New York City, who is associated with the MacNair-Dorland Company, trade journal publishers. Possession of the forty-seven-acre farm, located about three and one-half miles from Lexington, will be taken about August 1. The farm will be known as Roseland in , the future, Dorland stated, and will be 1 operated as a thoroughbred establishment. i The New York resident purchased his first thoroughbred brood mare about three years ago when he bought Crackaloo. by Chance I Shot — Negrina, from Arthur B. Hancock. I The brood mare will be moved to Roseland in September. She is now at Claiborne Stud. Since Negrina is a full sister to Jeanne Bowdre, noted mare which was owned and produced by the late Jack Keene, it follows that Crackaloo is a sister in blood to Grand Slam, by Chance Play — Jeanne Bowdre, now standing at the Keeneland Stud. Crackaloo was bred to Blue Larkspur this spring. At her side at present is a bay colt by Omaha. She is the dam of Lady Flares, Nebraska and the two-year-old Omaloo. Another Dorland-owned mare, Friendly Jane, by Chance Shot — Friendly Gal, also will be moved from Claiborne to Roseland this fall. The mare foaled a bay filly by Jacopo this spring and has been bred to Rhodes Scholar. Her first foal, Just John, has not raced yet. Mr. and Mrs. Dorland are expected to make their home in Lexington later this year. Roseland, formerly owned by Charles Rose, has a three-stall barn and other im- i provements. For the past fifteen years the farm has been devoted mainly to livestock production.
