Big Puff for Messenger Wilkes and Black Victor flThe following complimentary notice of my stallions, Messenger Wilkes and Black Victor, appeared in the Sporting Edition of the Milwaukee Free Press of April 7th, 1907, and shows that they are not without honor in their own country. ^"Wis consin boasted, among other champions, the Black Victor gelding, Harry Victor, the first horse to trot a mile in 2:7 to a high wheeled sulky, and it is a noteworthy fact that two of the greatest show horses shown at the Madison Square Garden, N .Y., were sired by stallions (Messenger Wilkes and Black Victor) that subsequently headed Alfred Von Cotzhausens Progress stud at Milwaukee. The invincible champion, Dash, as well as the great show pair, Spray and Berkshire, were both sired by the great show horse, Messenger Wilkes, which left many show horses in and about Waukesha and Milwaukee counties". ^Messen ger Wilkes, Black Victor and Wisconsin Central (a cousin of Dan Patch, who is an inbred Wilkes horse and as good as either of the others) are in the pink of condition, having become thoroughly acclimated, and will make the season at Franklin, Miss. lood Fee to insure $25.00.
