With the death three, or four years ago of his father, one of the strongest .of Uie standardbred pillars, Warren Wright, Jr., of Calumet Farm, announced the dispersal of hli vast stock of trotters.

It would give other breeders and be- ?lnners opportunities lo purchase the finest bloodstock Knight's mores were the best available and no breeder could have hoi^d to see the day whn Mr. McEUvyn would be up at public auction. 4 • • Mr.•MpElwyn Goes for $15,500 One of the highlights of the most recent edition of the famous Old Glory Sale in New York—a sale prlmarii ydesigned for the marketing of yearlings—was the appearance of Ihe 15-year-old sire on the block. Lawrence B. sheppard, master of Hanover Shoe Farms.'flnnlh obtained the Illustrious sire for a than three-quarters of ii . million dollars Invested In his fiirm. He was producing lite finest racing stock in HID world, and mad made himself one of the greatest bloodline ex- pei'ts. Yet his entire stock went for less than the cost of* maintaining it for one year, Millionaires, and scml-inlUlon- alres go into horse racing as a hob- hy nnd an absorbing amusement, Many of them never "consider the costs of breeding \vlnnlng stock! Yet even a man who can well afford the money must often grow discouraged us he notes the vast discrepancy between the prices paid for standardbred and thoroughbred racing and breeding stock. price of $15,500, after persistent efforts of Italy's Count Mangclll to take the horse abroad. Perhaps the price realized for Mr. McElwyn, a stallion which has go' almost 100 horses in the 2:10 class is an Indication of the rcosot Knight decided to turn his Alma- hurst Fann into a thoroughbred nursery.

The heat system, with the scoring and delays, and with horses getting clmncc, made the public lose In- away In . a gallop and with no terest. Trainers, knowing the traits of horses, sacrifice'heals in order to win a race.; Betters lose confidence, standouts nre' barred from the betting after winning a heat, and players refuse'to pick a second choice. The antediluvian and confusing auction pools are unpopular with the newer school of race- goers, nnd heat racing rulus the popular parl-mutuels for the average person. : Since attendance and belting make the purses,'the purses are small.
