D DOBLE'S DEATH OF HALF A CENTURY Famous Driver Once Chosen by General Grant to Pilot Fast Trotter, and Brought Nancy Hanks in for Record. Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote fifty-three years ago the short, poem. "How the Old Horse Won the Bet" In which are the lines: With them at third, and who is lie That stands beside the fast b. x .? Budd Doble whose catarrhal name So fills the nasal trump of fame. And now says the Brooklyn Eagle, we read that -Budd Doble is dead at almost 78, after a career as a horse man of more than half a century, chief ly Identified with the sulky and the driving of trotting horses. Prior to 1865 he stuck to the saddle. Five years before that, at the age of lih he had ! won honors on the old Centerville, L.. | !.. track, where he rode Rockingham, j beating Lancet with a time of 2:24. General tirant, before and after lie I ws president, had a fancy for horses and a quick judgment as to hor.T values, it was he who picked Dexter out of the butcher's cart and bought him. His judgment of men was equally good, -for Budd Doble in 1867 drove Dexter to a record trotting time of ; 2:17M>. Dexter improved on this. But j In 1872 Doble began paying attention j to Goldsmith Maid, and in 1S74 he » rove lier to a 2:14 mile, breaking all | records. It was at the age of 50 that he scored heaviest with Nancy Hanks j p. mile in 2:<>4. Six seconds have been' knocked off that record since 1892. I when it was made*. Dohle up to 191 G had been superin- j tendent of a big stock farm in south ern California, lie gave up this job at the age of 75. His last active year saw him in the sulky on the race track. One cannot quite say he died in the harness but he came closer to it than most old men do. As for the vague of the trotting horse whose achievements had interest be cause of the trained restraint of the onimal, the horse always knowing that it could go faster at another gait, it is not what it was, though the fancy still survives and is kept alive by country fairs. To the spectator the five-heat trotting race has a sustained fascina tion that the hectic excitement of a running race cannot offer. But the farmer who used to pride himself on going faster than other farmers behind his trotter, understands thr»t he can g«> much faster in a "flivver'" Nowadays he is chiefly interested in fast walking horses, and for obvious reasons. That trotting will never get back to its old rank and that it will never develop an other Budd Doble is a very reasonable prediction.

"The government could use part of the money for the provision of stal lions so the farmer could receive direct benefit by the opportunity to breed finer animals. The need of the farmer for better horses was never greater," he said. The primary object of racing should be to encourage better breeding.
