Doyle, D.5.0., veterinary surgeon, of Epsom, made a profit of £11,529 on an outlay of £2100 in 1939, when he sold the six-year-old mare Sister Clara at the Newmarket bloodstock sales to-day for 11,000 guineas. Sister Clara's buyei' was the well-known owner Miss Dorothy Paget. It was one of the most remarkable bloodstock sales the racing world has known for many years. Major Doyle fouiid that Sister Clara, who is Sun Chariot's half-sister, could not be trained, so he mated her with Stardust and sold the foal for 6600 guineas. Sister Clara is by Scarlet Tiger from Clarence.
