PRIZE OF SALE-RING
Colombo, tho outstanding two-year-old in England this year, with the attractive record o£ seven successive victories involving over £17,000 in prize money., is included among bargains- of the sale-ring, i'or he cost Lord Glaucly only 510 guineas. Having won all his races in brilliant style, Colombo is rated very highly, and, in yefurring to him, the London "Sporting Life" says:— "By common consent, there has been no two-yeav-old' since The Tetrarch who has created such an impression as Colombo. When The Tetrarch was putting up those dazzling performances there was always the doubt whether one bred as he was would *tay the Derby distance as a three-year-old- In the case of Colombo there arc no such doubts based on his pedigree. His sire, Manna, was a winner of the Two Thousand Guineas and Derby, and would probably have won the St. Leger but i'or the unfortunate mishap in tho race which ended his racing career." The leading lines in the pedigree of Colombo read as follows: — Sire: Manna, by Phalarls (son of Polyinelus and grandson of Cylleno) from Waffles, by Buckwheat (son of Martaeon). Dam: Lady Nairne, by Chaucer .(son of St. Simon and grandson of Galopin) from Lammermuir, by Sunstar (son of SunU- • ridge) from Jlontem, by Liidas (son of Hampton) Lord Glanely well deserves a prize.from the sale-ring, for he experienced great disappointment with two colts for. which he paid large sums as yearlings. In 1919 he bought Westward Ho for 11,500 guineas, and in the following year he invested 14,500 guineas in the purchase of .Blue, Ensign. ■ Westward Ho won only one. small race and Blue Ensign was a complete failure.
