WORLD FAMOUS NORSES
Some Diiseovered I the Depths of Obseurity by the Merest Chanos Luabi, With Impartial Hand, Pointe Out Great Horses and Warriors. How some of Them Were eound Oat Long List of Great "lemds" Great sires. Israel Painam, renowned as a fighting general in the annats of the revolutionary war; "Old Hickory" Jackson, the hero of New Orleans and the president of a great nation, and Fabius Maximus, of ancient times, might have remained humble hus bandmen until death eame up on his old white horse and claimed them as his own, had not luek. In the shape of grim-visaged war, beckoned them to the battle field. from which they retired with their brows wreathed with the laurel crowns of victory, and awoke the next morning to find them selves famone. We have Petnams and Jaeksons and Mol Pitohers among horses also, and in many cases these equine heroes and hereines have become seamed with Time's wrinkles are smiling-faced Dame Fortune deigned to wave her wand o'er. their heads and transform them into favor ites of lovers of a good horse-sire, dim or performer. One of the greatest sires of trotters and pacers, Blue Bull, who has been most appro priately named "the Poor Man's Horse," Vae overlooked so completely by. his owner, James Wilson, for many years, that he never bred him to any mare, but used Blue Bull in the capacity, of "teaser" to a jack of some pretensions near Rushville, Ind. Breaking from his attendant one day, he served the mare he was "teasing," and the result was Purity, who trotted in 2:30. To Blue Bull, the despised old pacer, who was in the stud only eleven years. belongs the credit of producing fifty-five trotters and eight pacers in the "charmed circle," this to the cover of about 800 mares, not always to the best, by any means-a marvelous showing truly. Blue Bull was about six teen years old before his worth was discov ered. Frank Oxman, one of the phenomenal pacers of 1891. belongld to a Hickman county. Tennessee farmer, who, being a fair judge of a horse, thought to give Ox man, who was anything but a beautiful beast, "a whirl" over the Hermitage track, near Nashville, Tenn. The party in charge of the track scrutinized the horse closely and at length advised the farmer to take the animal back at once to his native heath and place him again in the plow. where he thought Oxman belonged. The owner of the horse was about to turn about and de .pnrt sorrovifully for home, when the guar dian of the race track, in a spirit of fon, allowed a negro youth to hitch up a fast pacer in order "to make a monkey" out of the man with the "hayseed" horse. The pair set out, and to the amazement of the joker, Frank Oxiocn, who had never set foot on a rase trick before, not only threw dust in the other pacer's eyes, bat went one of the fastest half-miles on record. The race track man, recovering after a time from his amazement, wanted to buy the "green" horse, but Oxman's owner had enough "horse sense" to feel that he had a mighty good animal and wouldn't have it. It is only a niece of luck that this phenomenon is out of the plow this minute. He is now owned by the Oxman Bros., of Grarville. Ind. Goldsmith Maid, Barns, Occident and Smuggler, the pacers Dallas and Little Brown Jug were "finds" of the first water, and the latter once sold for only $60, and was not considered at the time any too good a "bay" at that figure. Dallas, 2:11%, only brought $150 at the Grand View sale, in Tennessee. Goldsmith Maid pulled a milk wagon for a long time in and around Deck ertown, N. J., Rocording to a number of turf authorities, , and even then her light came out from under the bushel and dazzled the trotting horse world with its brilliancy. As a race mare she has never been equalled, taking number of races won and her average time into consideration, although the tracks are faster nowadays and several appliances in the shape of boots, toe weights, eto., have been patented since the old queen trod the the turf. Goldsmith Maid was seventeen when she made her record of 2:14 in Septem ber, 1874, at Boston. Smuggler was "developed" by the now celebrated trainer and driver, Charles Mar yin, and from an obscure portion of the then '`tild and woolly weat"-Kansas came out on eastern tracks and beat the best known stallions of the day, eventually becoming the champion with a record of 2:15r'4. Smuggler's breeding on the dam's side lq still shrouded in mystery, and, with out such a handler as Marvin, the great horse might never have been heard of. He was foaled at Columbus, O., and was ten when he made his record. The immortal Electioneer, sire of seventy eight trotters and one pacer with records of 2:30 or better, was not thought one-fifth as much of by his New York owner as Messen ger Doroo, and Mr. Backman did not think a great deal of Senator Stanford's knowl edge of horseology when he chose Elec. tioneer for $12,000 instead of Messenger Dunroc at $60,000. Then, too, if Electioneer (who was then time years of age) had not been brought to this country of the grand climate and mated with the splendid matrons selected by the owner of Palo Alto, he might have been given little or no chance to distinguish himself had he remained at itony Ford stud, whose master thought lit tle of Electioneer and would have given him, in all probability, second-rate mares. The history of Waxy, grandam of. the world-famous Bunol, has been written most too recently to go into it again, but it is in teresting in the extreme. It shows that this mare, a thoroughbred daughter of Lexing ton and the Reenon mare, who was by lranner's Eclipse (sire also of Nantura, the dam of Longfellow) was a "cast-off" of Philip Swigert of Kentucky, he sending the lilly with eight head of horses across the plains to California in 1864 in charge of John P. Welsh, with orders to sell, race or do anything he pleased with them, taking half the profits. As a race mare Waxy was not a howling sencess, and at a sale of the lwigert stock hbld at San Jose in 1861, I think, Waxy p'ased into the hands of a gentleman named Wooderd, who paid only 250 for her. She produced to the cover of Gen. Benton that great brood-mare, Waxana, dam of Sunol. The original contract entered into -betWeen Philip Swigert and John P. Welsh is now in the pessesion of Joseph Cairn Simpson, the veteran turf writer and horseman, as is the list of horses sold by N. Hayes, of San Jose, wherein was Waxy. The breeding on the dam's side was left blank on Hayes' bill of sale, and caused no end of confusion in after years, when it was claimed by many "trotting blood" cranks that Waxy was not a thoroughbrcd at all. Maud S. herself was sold for a pittance by A. J. Alexander, of Spring Station Kt., to Capt. Stone, after whose daughter, Maud Stone, the trotting queen was named. This world's trotting record-holder of over six years made her beat time (2:08"Q) when eleven yenrs bid, over the (levelrnd track on July '0, 1885. Reno F. carne out of the Iowa woods last season, when seven years of age, and scooped in a ton of money for his shrewd htndlors, and gained a record of fi:17 at Chicago in August besides. Although this roree's light was not shown until he was seven, it is more then probable that this son of Mohawk Hambletonian (Little Monk) will be talked of fpr more than seven years, such a ignsatlon did he create. Like Smuggler, Keno F.'s dam's breeding is unknown. lir us, king of the trotting turf for quite a while was on earth a long time before his qualities were discovered by the public, and although fairly well-bred (by Conklin's ),d Nancy Awful. byr'belepok). Rhyn~e w s 1 sreofa before he etsrtleo( S r roanyevat this et~r* was godhrse-4tesi-*wotk on a Rniase :area. anaength passed into the bands of a shrewd horseman, who paid the Insignift eaat sum of glib for Roth. H. was sired hb Little Albert, a thoroughbred son of ih. CGleeeso asi this is only another bear lag-out of tiae erath of the ancient axiom that "blood will tell." Among the thoroughbreds there is no more interesting case of "burial alive" for years and Dual resarreetion than that of the wonderful sire, imp. Bennie Scotland, by Isgo, dam Queen Mary. He was brought from England by daptaia Cornish, passed to John ltbsr, of Lancaster, 0., and after wards to "Uncle Joe" tSimpson and L. C. Parks, of Iowa. Finally, even though bred to a lot of inferior mares he produced Quar termaster and several other good ones and at length some enthusiastic friend of the horse urged old General W. G. Harding, of Bells Meade farm, near Nashville, Tenn., to buy the half-brother to Blink Bonny and Balrownie of Mr. Parks, whiah was done, and when be was mated with some really first-slass matrons, behold the galax of great race horses he produced in Luke Blackburn, George Kinney, Bootjack, Bancroft, Beatitude, Bramble, Bramba lettn, Quartermaster, Boardman, Joe Howell, Boatman, Barrett, Arsoza, Belle of the Highlands, Boulevard and Beatiice! Bonnie Scotland was a pretty old horse when he was "discovered" by Gieneral Harding, and his showing was nothing short of marvelous. His old owner, now passed to his fathers, )mad the old horse's skeleton set up and preserved when Bonnie Scotland died at the age of 219, and the let ter's life reminds one ioreibly of Eloc tioneer's-his "discovery," made when he was far from young, and his , fnal marvelous showing as a sire when bred to good mares. and at length, when he had established a reputation for siring psoedy "stayers," passing away at a' good old age, his memory revered by his iind old master, who had his good bones set up where he could gaze once in a while on all that remained of a great horse ex cept his imperishable fame as a sire. Virgil, who became famous before he died as the sire of the two Kentucky Derby winners, Vagrant and Hindoo, and the unbeaten Tremont, among other won derful thoronghbredn, was once given away by M. H. Sanford to Nelson Dudley. I have been told, but when Vagrant came out and won the Derby in 1876 Mr. F. was very glad to get the old eon of Vandal and Hymenia back and breed him to the best mares on his magnificent domain near Lax ington, Ky. What this "cast oil" did in after years as a sire at Elmendorf has only been excelled by Bonnie Scotland in this country. Bellh Knight, who, next to our Marian, is the greatest thoroughbred broodmare in America (the dam of nine splendid per formers, among them Freeland, Long Knight, Unite, Lavinia Belle and Annie Blackburn), was no spring chicken when her first good colt, Bell Boy, came out, and i it is claimed was considered almost worth less and such a rocky-looking individual that she was sold for $90. Ed. Corrigan was particularly "sweet" on Belle Knight's progeny, and the mare's foals were worth almost their weight in gold. The great eon of Enquirer and Melits. Egmont, sold for a song, was taken to Texas, and finally the "bush horse," as he was known, cnme out and beat the pick of the west, ridden by a stable boy named Matthew. Eventually the horse passed into the hanla of the Chicago stables on pay ment of $10,000. Double Cross, sire of Guido, was driven in a buggy around Oakland for several years by Mrs. J. C. Simpson, unthought of as a sire of great race horses, until Col. Harry I. Thornton conceived the notion of mating him with that excellent matron, Aurora. If the old horse had lived he might have been another Bonnie Scotland, for he had two crosses of that horse in him from which he derived his name, Double Cross. His sire was Malcolm, by Bonnie Sootland, and his dam Columbia, a daugh ter of Bonnie Scotland. grandarm of Anteeo 2:1l;4 and Antevolo 2:l'J(. John Davis, still on the turf, though 11 years of ago, wae used in a ut. Louis riding school for a long time after he was sup posed to bh broken down, was "resurrected," and bloomed again as a victor in races in which were Bancroft, Blazes and other cracks of that day in the west. Ryder Ali was not given much of achance to distinguish himself in the stud while on the Rowett farm in Illinois: but when Spokane came out in 1889 and won the Ken tucky derby at Louisville from Proctor Knott in the fastest timn ever made by a three-year-old at the dietanes-2:34' -and that on a track far from fast, there was a large premium placed on the old horse's get, and he will doubtless show his true worth in years to come in his Montana home. Preakness, who still (with Springbok) hold the world's record at two and one quarter miles, made at Saratoga in 1875. was taken to England and placed in the duke of Hamilton's etud, the manager of which took a&dislike to the "American im portatioq' and gave him the worst of it in every way, finally representing to the duke that the horee'wps eo vicious that nothing could be done with him. Preakness was there upon ordered put to death by the revolver route, and when ,this badly treated turf monarch had been in his untimely grave a year or two. Fiddler, one of his colts, among others, came out and beet everything in sight. Here was one of the grandest horses in point of conformation and with the ability to get speedy and game race horses, cast aside through the hatred of an English horseman for anything American. Thus it goes, and never was ther it more notable instance of not appreciating any one until they are dead than in the case of the noble Preaknese.-Breeder and Sports man.
