By JOHN CHANDLER NEW YORK (AP) — Mighty Nashua will be shipped to Florida next week to continue his sensational career after being -sold for a world record price of $1,251,200. Executors of the estate of the late William Woodward Jr. sold Nashua yesterday to a syndicate headed by Leslie Combs n of Spendthrift Farm, Lexington, .Ky. This was the greatest single horse trade ever concluded, involving an unprecedented sale of a great colt still at the peak of his racing career. Sunny Jim Fitzstmmons, 81-year-old trainer of Nash- will take charge of the big 3- year-old again late next week, Nashua, of course, was the big; news in the dollars and cents part of the bargain.

A Nashua, sold under sealed bids for total of 62 horses, including a grand total of $1,866,200. Combs said Nashua would be sent from Kentucky to Hialeah Park In Ml- to John Korese, electrical supply ami to begin training for the $100,000-added Widener Handicap Feb. 18. Nine other race horses and 12 yearlings went Teaneck, N. J. man who owns a racing stable, for $205,000. Mildred W. Woolwine of White Oaks Farm, Lexington, Ky., breeder of Helioscope, a top 1955 handicap horse, paid $410,000 for 24 Belair broodmares and 16 weanlings. Miss Woolwine said her associates were Edward Potter of Nashville, Tenn., and Mr. and Mrs. Harry S. Middendorf of Boston, Mass Broodmares acquired by Miss Woolwine included Segula, dam of Nashua. Segula is in foal to Nas- mllah, daddy of Nashua. So a full brother or sister may be along next] spring. Combs, who has figured in many great horse deals, said he would go to Miami soon after Jan. 1 to confer with Fitzsfmmons on Nashua's racing campaign. Nashua, with $945,415 in the bank, is the second greatest money winning horse in the world. All he needs is one big victory like the Widener, and he'll surpass Citation, who retired in 1951 with $1,085,760. This year alone, Nashua won sev- en $100,000 races nnd earned $752,- his wort! 550, surpassing Citation's 1948 rec-' ord 01 $709,470 for one season of racing.
