From the New York 'V egraph. - Through the courtesy of Mr. Pierre Loril - lard, the Morning Telegraph received noti - fication yesterday of the death of the fa d mous racehorse Parole, from old age, at -. Tuxedo Park. N. Y. r- Parole was by Leamington, out of Maiden, a 'foalel in 1873. Had he died one day sooner he would have been twenty-nine years old, is but his death coming on the first day of y the new year made him thirty years of g age. d In the colors of the late Pierre Lorillard LI Parole endeared himself to turfmen of n twenty years ago by his good perform d ances. both in America and England. In 1879 Mr. Lorillard for the first time sent a r stable of horses to England to race, in r. charge of Trainer Jacob Pincus. n This attempt of the American turfman to win the classic events of the English turf %as the first time in twenty years that a good string of horses had'been sent to Eng a land to race. Ten Broeck having headed the previous invasion In the sixties. - American horses were- not seriously re e garded in Engalnd and the arrival of Pa it role attracted no especial attention. Parole ir was then six years old and he distinguished i himself promptly by winning the popular 3- classic event, the City and Suburban handi ' cap, at Epsom. e The City and Suburban is at about a ml% It and a quarter, and Parole, carrying 119 e pounds, won It in a gallop at long odds from n a field of eighteen starters. The value of .e the stake was about 37,500, but at the goad *e price quoted against Parole the intable was - able to win large sums in wagers. Two years later, In 1881, Mr. Lorillard I- won-the greatest event of the English turf, the Derby, with Iroquois, another son of Leamington, who also won the St. Leger .the same year. Before being sent to England Parole bad raced with success In this country, and was one of the best handicap horses of his day. He also raced well after his return from England. 5 Parole was naturally a great favorite g with Mr. Lorillard by reason of his suc n cess in England. as well as his splendid e record on the American turf, and some ten years ago was exhibited proudly by his owner at the Morris Park course, though n old and fat, and looking like anything but d a City and Suburban winner, simply for his glorious achievements of a decade before. 5, L GANS' EASY VICTORY.
