Stud Horses. When the Horse parade was held on the 30th ult., there were a few horses shown whose names did not appear on the published programme. Notable among these was the favorite sire Admiral. This horse, by Walton, out of Spray, can boast of a pedigree equal to anything in the colony. Spray was the dam of Stormbird, Belle of the Isle, Wetsail, and other fashionable stock. Admiral’s appearance is against him, his shoulder having been broken as a two-year-old, but when we call to mind that he took Ist prize at the Christchurch Show in 1877 against all comers, he must possess very points. Any ot his stock we have seen look like having plenty of work in them, and their stamina is unquestionable.
