ENGLISH COLT ARRIVES
RELATED TO MR. STANDFAST An English colt, purchased as a yearling for Mr. M. H. Tims, of Te Awamutu, lias arrived safely from England. He is destined for racing purposes but eventually will go to the stud. This colt, which is a splendid individual, showing excellent conformation, good bone and perfect action, will be given ample time to acclimatise before being put to racing. He is most attractively bred, his third dam being a full sister to Mr. Standfast, which was imported by Mr. Tims and stood •at his stud at Te Awamutu for some seasons before being sold to Queensland. The sire of the colt Brumuex was a fine stayer in France and, after being taken to England, won the Newbury Autumn Cup. two miles one furlong, the Jockey Club Cup. two miles and a quarter, and the Delamere Handicap, two miles. He is represented on the English turf at the present moment by I_,ord Derby's high-class colt Borealis. which ran second to Teheran in the St. Leger, and recently defeated Ocean Swell over a mile and a half.. Brumeux is one of the notable sons of the great sire Teddy, and the colt is, in fact, the only direct male descendant of the great French sire in this part of the world. Laurel Wreath, the dam of the colt, is by Cri de Guerre, one of the most notable French stayers whose many great victories include the Grand Priz de Paris. Cinnamon, the grandam, is by another great stayer in Obliterate, the sire of Balloch, while her dam Buchna is the sister to Mr. Standfast, being by Buchan from Cinna.
