REVISION OF PLANS
FELICITATION AND STUD
II H. -the Aj?n Khan has icvised hit intention ot sending to the stud hi* Awot Gold Cup winner Felicitation, says, the latent Kiirlisli exchange. The hoise is to be kept in tiainmg for another jear in order to take on the I'teiioh champion Biantolne over the seieie Ascot Cup cotirwe. In the Pnx de l'Aio de Inomphe, a mile and a half race at Longchamp early in October, Brantome icadily defeated Felicitation. It -was said that felicitation -nas not at his best that day, and moieom the distance hji not far enough to bmiß out his best qualities rJ lie Aga Khan believes his hoiip to be tho best stajer in the voild, and al«o that the sou of Colondo \kill, pto\e tins cj.um by beating Biantome and Windsor Lad for the Ascot tippliy next June. Appaiently the Aga Kjnin has si eater faith in Felicitation than in Umidvai ,itf a Gold Cup h.oise, though, all being well, both Mill bo*saddled foi the race. A few -weeks ago the Aga Khan decided to scud Felicitation to tho Egorton Stud, and nominations ioi the hoise's seiviccs at 230 guineas -ncic piomptly filled. Ihe bleeders concqined -\\eie iccently •isked if Ihpy would siiciifice the nominations for the present, in the e\cnt of the hoi'c's being kept in tiaming, and send then males to him in 1936. This re-, qucit has been acceded to by the wellknovn bieedcis concerned, though theie is the pioi iso, in some eases, lescmns! the light to take up the nominations again. Should Felicitation again tuumph at Ascot, his stud \tilue •nould be enhanced, but there is the -risk of loss of prestige, in which ease some breeders might desire 'to reuse their plans.
