for the shipment of a carload of blood
ed horses to Lexington, Ky. The ani
mals are all thoroughbreds and were

brought the largest prices that have
been paid for blooded horses in years.
Speaking of the animals, Doctor Hag

enced horsemen in the state, said:
"They are as pretty as any I ever saw
and they will bring the highest kind
of a price in Kentucky. The people
down there, you know, are lovers of
thoroughbreds, and I think they will
be more than satisfied with the load
that we are shipping to them."
