Mr. R. E. de B. Loper., the noted
turfman of Australia, in the California
Tnrf of S»n Krancisco gives the follow
ing interesting latter about Banta Anita
and Baldwin's horses:
Never having eeen any account of the
Ranta Anita thoroughbreds, arid know-
ing that many good ones have been bred
there, I thought it would interest lovers
of the race horse to hear what ie being
bred at Lucky Baldwin's celebrated

I would here mention that it 10 custom
ary to speak ol Mr. K. J. Ilaldwin as be
ing a wonderfully lucky man; at tho
aame time credit is seldom, if evor, given
to hia wonderful enterprise or to his ad :
mlniatrative ability. While driving
over Hants Anita, however, I saw enough
to understand what an enormous nam of
money must have been spent in irrigat
ing tbe ranch and on other improve
ments. And the conception of tint whole
enterprise leads me to look upon Mr.
Baldwin ns a man of indomitable pluck
The ranch itself is the very best horse

confident that Mr. Ilaldwin ban mures

Foalod in 1871, he is 22 years old, showa

course, yet there is small wonder that
he has been such a success at the stud.

He waa a good, honest race horse and
comes from a running family, which also
has Buric, Alaric, Vandal, Lexington,

Beginning at a large barley paddock
were the mares, and in company with
Mr. Wood I walked quietly through
them, The first to catch my eye waa
Niente, a chestnnt mare, own«sister to
Volante, and a treasure she is. Witb a
white streak down her face, lengthy and
muscular with plenty of size and qual
ity, sbo is an ideal brood mare and looks
ns if eho should have been a race mare.
Hhe has already proved what she will
throw by her 2-year-old filly by Cheviot,
and ehe now has at foal a very pro
miaing filly by The Emperor, with big
lusty quarters, and iaetinted this season
to The Hook.
I.illita, by Rutherford from Maggie
Kmmereon, is a bay mare with a heavy
middle piece. Sbe does not strike one
oa a great mare, but being the dam

evidently a poor milker. She has a bay
colt by Gano and ia stinted to him

Jennie 8., own sister to Jennie D., the

bay colt by The Hook that looks like a

chestnut fijly at foal, by The Hook,
Blowing hia sire's Touchstone blood in

cm both Bides. I would rather not; but
Mr. Wood haa no choice, seeing the
breeding of hie sires.
Glenitn. by imp. Glenelg from Lark,
by Lexington, second dam Laura, by
imported Gleucoe, is a particularly nice
bay mare, Bhowing great quality, and
has a raking chestnut colt at foot that
looks like making a race horae. Thiß

The Hook, and Bmall wonder ehe has
boen served by him again. lie is the
finest colt in the place.
Ophir is a, gray mare, while there is
nothing abont her to enthnae over, she
nevertheless is a useful sort of nag for a
hurdle job at which she was pretty good.
She is by Baywood from Lag by Load

Scythian. She hai not as yet been suc
cessful as a brood mare, but has at pres
ent a very good looking bay filly With
two white legs by The Hook at foot, and
is served by him again.
Belinda iB a brown mare with white
hind legs, and looks a useful sort of mare
for a bug"gy, certainly not fit to grace the
Santa Anita paddock any more than
Ophir, and she is by Belmont from Lady
Spring by Chickaree, second dam Lady
Fremont by Rock, third dam said to be
by imported Glencoe. She has a pretty
little foal by Glencoe, and is served by
Hermosa ia an enormous big chestnut
