Paradox was bred by Messrs Graham at the Yardley Stud, and was bought at their yearling sale by Captain Bowlins for 700 guineas. Oa reaching two years of age he showed so much the promise that the Duka of Westminster gare large sum of 6000 guineas for him, with a contingency of 2000 guineas more should he win- the Middle Park Plate. That race marked his first appearance in public, and he started a warm favourite in a field, of 13, but was beaten by both Melton and Xaintrailles, running a dead heat witb Royal Hampton for third place. The Duke 'of Westminster then in a fit of disgust sold the colt to Mr Gloete, for whom he two or three weeks later won the Dawhurst Plate, of 1557 aovs, beating Cora, Xaintrailles, and seven others, including Farewell. After tbia victory, which closed the two-year-old career of Paradox, -Mr Gloete was offered 10,000 guineas for tbe colt, but declined it. He is engaged in the Derby, Epsom Grand Prize, Grand Prix de Paris, Champion Stakes, and other valuable Stakes, but is not entered for the St, Leger. At the time the last mail left Home Paradox waß first favourite for the Two Thousand at 3 to 1, " taken and wanted," with Child of the Mist second at Bto 1, For the Derby Paradox and Melton (who was not engaged in the Guineas) were equal favourites at 7 to 1, while the Chopette colt was quoted at 100 to 1. The Chopette colt last year ran four times, and won the Halnaker Stakes of 340 soya at Goodwood, beating Satchel and eight others ; finished third to L.ingwell and Lady Clarendon in a Maiden Plate at the same meeting ; ran second to Lonely in the Ross Plate of 397 soya at Doncu3ter ; and third to Aladdin and Cartago in a Nursery Stakes at Newmarket. He is entered for the Derby, Grand Prix, and St. Leper. Child of tbe Mist ran only twice last season, finishing second to the Beauclerc— Stella colt in tbe Ascot Biennial Stakes of 800 soys, and winning the Chesterfield Stakes of 1120 soya at Newmarket. He is entered fcr the Derby, Grand Prix, St. Legar, and Champion Stakea.
