Pokebvs stock then created n very favorable impression, and this reasons foals ere spoken of as a very fine lot indeed. Bock Sand, tho sire of Rokebv, also sired "Tracery, who won the Doncaster St. Leger In 1912. and as a four-year-old was ie-ca-rded as perhaps the best horse in England. Tracery \s deeds brought Rock Sand into" creat prominence, and it was conMderecl fortunate for ».<r Zealand breeders that there was a son of Rock Sand at- the stud in tho Dominion.
