CURRENCY is a rich dark bay with full black points, stands 153 hand
high, and is acknowledged by horsemen to be the handsomest horse evor brough
to this section. He is a horse of superior action, and magnificent style, perfee

themselves, but are the producers of race horses of the first water. HIS reu
