REARED BY FOSTER MOTHER.
Paragon, winner of the C'ty and Suburban at Epsom (England), on April 19, was reared on the milk of a cart horse mare. Bred by the late Lord Falmouth, Paragon is a hay brother to the Two* .Thousand Guineas winner Clarissimus, by Radium from unbeaten Quintessence, which daughter of St. Frisquiri, who had won the One Thousand Guineas for Lord Falmouth m 1903, died ten days after- foaling Paragon. A cart mare* foster- mother was secured for £60 from an old la'lv, who was so loth to > part f with the mare . that Lord Falmoutn sent her bapk as a present when tho. foal was weaned. The youngster thrived well . with his new mother, until frightened one day by a motor-lorry passing the paddock m which he and the mare were at Mereworth. In trying to get through 1 a hedge, the foal injured the outside of his off hock, and permanently disfigured himself, but the., mishap did not affect the cots action, ,and Sh" Ernest Paget, his present owner, gave 720 guineas for hirri at the December sales of i9IS. i Paragon was ridden by the American jockey . Archibald m tha City nnd fiuburban.and this, was his first.English victory. His ; riding is favorably noticed by English pressmen.
