ARGYLE is a dark brown horse, with
out white, except a star, fifieen hands andi
three quarters high; possessed of utincom
mon bone and muscle, and a form com
bining with perfect symmtetry, every es
sential of a Race Horse. I-e is now ten
years old, having been foaled in Maryland
in the Spring of 1830. He was sired by
the famous Mons. Tonson, his datn This
tIe, tas by Ogle's Oscar, his gratidam by
Dr. Thornton's imported Horse Clifilen;
his g. g. dam by Sir. llall* Spot ; arld his
ig.g. g. dam by Dr. M arshall's llyder Ally,
wiho was by Lindsay's Arabian.
The Performances of ARGYLE upon
the Turf, have placed him in the very first
rank of American llorses at a Racer, while
those of his get entitle him to an equal
standing asa Stallion. He started first at
Orangeburg, S. C. in January 1834, and
ran at Barnwell, Augusta. Macon, Coinm
bia, and Charleston, two three, and four
miles heats, winning successively 8 iaqe-s,
five of them of four mile heats. beating
Patsy Wallace, Rattlesnake, (3 imses) Lo
cy Aqijon. Rushlight. Bertrand junior.
(twice) Vertumnus, &c. &c. lie never
lost a heat, and was rarely if ever put tip
to his speed. until his extraordinary defeat
by John Bascombe in April, 1836, the
circumstances of which are familiar to
every one. Subsequently he was trained
and run with great stuccess in Virginia;t
and in May last or' the Central Coturse at
Baltimore, after running for the first heat
of three miles, and hosing it lby a headh in 5
minutes 4-seconds, he w-on the second
heat in 5 minuites, 40 seconds, being the
best second heat of three miles recorded in
the history of the American Tturf, and the
mnost brilliant performance of a year stur
passing all others in the richness of its an
nals. ~During the samne wveek, and ont the
same course, one of his dauj~hters, Kate
Seaton, won the great sweepstakes oif
$1000, beating a fine field withI gteat ease ;
such a coinceidence being hitherto unknowu
upon the Turf.
ARGYLE stood but one season aid- to
a limited number of maures, tnot many oft
which were thorough bred, yet his colts
have won nine out of the eleven races lo
which they. have been startedl, beating at
one, two, and three miles, the get of manty
of our best Stallions, besides several imn
ported colts, some of them in first-rate
time. Two of his get, Govertnor Butler
and Kate Seaton, are now unrivalled ttpun
the Turf lby sny thing of their age.
The owners of A RGY LE. in bringing
him back to the State in which (thso' nnt
foaled) he was first trained anad gained his
earliest laurels, present him wvith confi
dence to the Public,. as being in every way,
pn account of his blood, sire aind form, his
performances on the turf, so retmarkable
f'or endurance, as w~ell as speed, antI the
estraoardinary success of his get, worthy of
their entire approbation.
