Highland View Stock Farm is located in Claremoiit, N. H., 
one mile from station, and consists of six hundred acres of highly 
improved land. The buildings have been constructed with a view 
to attractiveness as well as convenience, and sanitarily are well- 
nigh perfect. With good, never failing water supply, rich pasturage 
and ample yard room, the facilities for the breeding of trotting 
stock are unexcelled. The roads are excellently constructed 
throughout the town, besides which, there is on the farm as fast a 
half-mile track as is on any farm in the country ; forty feet wide 
all the way, with fast stretches and turns, which are nicely graded. 

From the buildings may be seen from any point of the com- 
pass the most picturesque views, including mountain, valley and 
river vistas, and altogether Highland View is excellently well 
adapted for a country seat. Visitors are welcome at all times save 
Sundays, when business is suspended and the stock cannot be 
shown. Those interested in breeding, developing or examining fine 
horses will, we feel assured, see much of interest here. The stock 
is bred in well tried lines, and individually as good as the breeding 
would suggest. 

Excepting Evolutio, any animal in the collection is for sale, 
reasonably priced, on application.

This breeding is unsurpassed in many directions. The ancestors 
were nearly all of developed speed, and were tried and found to 
be brilliant campaigners. As Stranger was by Gen. Washington, 
and out of Goldsmith Maid, record 2.14, 332 heats in or below 
2.30, and Gen. Washington by Gen. Knox, 2.3 if (public trial, 2.24), 
out of Lady Thorne, 2.18^, 106 heats in or below 2.30, and own 
sister to the phenomenal broodmare sire. Mam. Patchen. Nomi- 
nee's dam. Sapphire, out of the great mare, Lucy, 2.18^, 62 heats 
in or below 2.30. Now we get a combination of the blood-lines 
of the three Queens of the Turf during their day, a line to 
Geo. M. Patchen, Champion Stallion during his time, and another 
to Jay Gould, which was also stallion king at one time. 

Alcantara leads the world's speed-producing record, and was by 
Geo. Wilkes, ex-champion stallion king, and the leading sire to 
date among sires of trotters ; his dam. Alma Mater, by the leading 
extreme speed broodmare sire (as judged by the 2.20 list). Mam. 
Patchen, 58, is dam of Alcyone, 2.27, sire of Alcryone, 2.15^, 
lona, 2.17^, etc., Arbiter, 2 30, and AUicia, 2.30, second dam 
Estella, by Australian, third dam Fanny G. (also third dam of 
Palo Alto, 2.12^), by Imp. Margrave. This includes, it will be 
seen, four direct lines to Hambletonian 10, the greatest sire of his 
time, and sire of Electioneer, George Wilkes, Happy Medium, 
Dictator, etc.; two strains to Alexander Abdallah, 15, opportunity 
considered, Hambletonian's best son ; three strains to Mambrino 


Chief, II (once through his best daughter, and once through his 
best son) ; two Hnes to Henry Clay ; one each to Pilot, Jr., 12, sire 
of dams of fastest and second fastest trotters ever foaled, Ameri- 
can Star, 14, sire of dams of Dexter, 2.17^, Nettie, 2.18, Orange 
Girl, 2.20, Guy, 2.1 of. The famous sires, Geo. Wilkes, Almont, 
Mam. Chief, Abdallah, 15, and Mam. Patchen, are of themselves 
sufficient to form a gilt-edged pedigree, but add to this the out- 
crosses of pacing and enduring thoroughbred and it is complete. 




Dam is own sister to Abdallah Wilkes, sire of Saxon, 2.22i, 
Voleta, 2.29i, etc. 

Bay stallion ; foaled 1883 ; bred by Dr. Wm. Jarvis, Claremont, 
N. H. Owned at Highland View. 

Sire, ALMONT EAGLE, 2.27. 

Could show a 2.15 gait, and with a chance should have beaten 2.20. 

First Dam, Vesta Wilkes, by Geo. Wilkes, 519. 

Record, 2.22. 
Sister to Abdallah Wilkes, trial, 2.29. Sire of Harry Wilkes, 2.13^, Guy 

Sire of Saxon, 2.22I, trial 2.18^, etc. Wilkes, 2.1 5^, Mike Wilkes, 2.15I, 

Wilson, 2.i6i, Wilcox, 2.16, etc. 
The leading sire of trotters and Ham- 
bletonian's best son. 

Second Dam, Marie, by Wagner Abdallah, 

Son of Jupiter Abdallah, sire of 
Result, 2.25, Prince, 2.27, Tom 
Moore, 2.28. His dam by the 
4-mile racer, Wagner. 

Third Dam, Daughter of Kentucky, 

Son of the noted racer,. Lexington. 

Geo. Wilkes' best nick is with the Mambrino Chief blood ; here 
we have it reversed. The Wilkes, on dam's side : backed by 
gamest. of racing strains and crossed on sire's side to the double 
Mambrino Chief strains, with a Pilot, Jr., outcross, then direct to 
a foundation of great notoriety for stamina. 

Eagle Wilkes is not a large horse, but as handsome a horse as 
stands, of commanding appearance and absolutely perfect vi ajiatom- 
ical construction everywhere. He is fast, stylish, and will be, or should 
be, a great sire. There's no speculation about him, for on each 
side it has been shown to be of speed-producing value. There are 
few in all this broad land like him, and none handsomer, according 
to those who have the right of experience to say it. 




[Standard, Rule 6.] 

Dark bay horse ; foaled 1885 ; bred by G. D. Frost, Bellows Falls, 

Vt.; stands 16 hands full. 

Sire, ALMONT EAGLE, 2.27. 

First Dam, Psyche, 2.27I, by Bayard, 2.31^, 53, 

Sire of Bliss, 2.21^, Emma B., 2.22, 
Fanny C, 2.24^, Lily J., 2.25^, 
Eagle Plume, 2.29J, Modie H., 
2.29^, Aimee, 2.30; dams of Faust, 
3 years, 2.18^, Jane R., 2.26^, 
etc., etc. 
Son of Pilot, Jr., 12. Sire of dams of 
20 in 2.30 list. 

Second Dam, Arabian Girl, by Carnac, 

Record, 2.40. Son of Ashland (sire of dams of 

Edwin Thorne, 2.i6i, Black Cloud, 
2.17^), by Mam. Chief, 11. 

Third Dam, Dam of Spotted Jim, 2.33. 

Could trot in 2. 25. 

Here we trace direct to the great broodmare fountains, Mam- 
brino Chief, 11, three times, and to Pilot, Jr., 12, twice, with speed- 
producing dams all round. Almont Eagle and Psyche both de- 
veloped performers both capable of faster records than attained 
at the time made, as their trials indicated each could beat 2.20. 
Back of all is another speed-producer, dam of Spotted Jim, 2.33, a 
horse trotted around half-mile tracks more to obtain purses than 
record; he could trot in 2.25 and faster, but was never allowed to 
trot there. Speed-producers denied first-rate opportunities are the 
very best examples of individuality to be found, and of far more 
value in a pedigree than fashionable strains which cannot substan- 
tiate by virtue of performance the trust put in the richness of 
breeding by patrons who wonder that they never got a trotter when 
those bred in similar lines go and perform creditably. Napoleon 
was retained, as he was well fortified with a high rate of natural 
speed, to prove what he now is, a trotter. 



iAZM. H. MOODY, 9581. 

[Standard, Rule 6.] 

Brownish bay stallion; foaled, 1887; bred at Highland View; 
stands 16 hands full. 


First Dam, Mermaid, by Volunteer Boy. 

Trial, driven by J. J. Bowen, in 2.28. Trial, 2.27 ; son of Volunteer, 55. 

Second Dam, Sea Foam, by Young Columbus, 

Record 2.24^. Sire of Myron Perry, 2.24I, Sea Foam, 

Could trot in 2.20, or better, and won 2.24I, Harry Harley, 25!, Phil 

24 hotly contested heats in 2.30 and Sheridan (sire of Phylis, 2.15^), 

faster. 2.26I, Com. Vanderbilt, 2.25, Ben 

Smith, 2.27, Arthur, 2.27-^, Farmer 
Boy, 2.28, Fitzgerald, 2.30, Young 
Columbus, Jr., 2.30; dam of Ab- 
bottsford, 2.19^, and 6 others in 

Third Dam, Daughter of Hambletonian, 2, 

Sire of Green Mountain Maid, 2.28^, 
and 3 others also, dams of 6 in 2.30. 

There is decidedly an outcross here, and includes fast performers. 
Mermaid ought to have been in the list, but has been bred in pre- 
ference to a turf career. The blood of Young Columbus breeds 
on: Adelaide, 2. 19I, a daughter of Phil Sheridan, has Nina D. 
2.26^, at 4 years, and Addie D., 2.25 1, at 3 years, in the list. Such 
an outcross, when commingled with Hambletonian and Mambrino 
Chief blood, must result favorably, as it becomes stronger as a 
speed-productive factor. 

This fellow is a royally handsome horse, excellently fashioned, 
bred and gaited for a fast performer, and knows nothing but trot. 
Good judges think him capable of a record in his four-yearold 
form inside the "circle which divides." He will be handled this 
coming season, and, barring accident, will be given a mark. 




[Standard, Rule 6.]

Grandee, 2.23-1^ at 3 years old. Starling, dam of Estabella, she the dam of 
Prince Regent, 2.i6|, winner of $10,000 2.20 Class Stake at Hartford, 1890. 
Wenonah, dam of Montezuma, 2.29J, sire of White Wings, 2.29^ at 3 years. 


Alcantara, 33 in 2.30 list at 14 years of age, 21 of which entered in 1890, 
beating all speed-productive records. Record at 4 years, 2.23, last half, i.o6|. 
Alcyone, 2.27, sire of 15 in 2.30 list. Arbiter, record 2.30. Allicia, 2.30. 

Quintuple traces five times to Mambrino Chief, five to Ham- 
bletonian, 10. To Mambrino Chief, through his best daughter 
really (breeding-on characteristics considered), Jessie Pepper. 
Dolly Halstead (dam of Administrator, 2.29^), Sally Ander- 
son (dam of Almont), Mag Ferguson (dam of Piedmont, 2.17:^, 


Almont Eagle, 2.27, Mammont 2 in 2.30 list), and through Alma 
Mater (4 in 2.30) to Mambrino Patchen, son of Mambrino 
Chief, and his best son as well. To Hambletonian through Geo. 
Wilkes, 2.22, his best son, Administrator, 2.29^, Abdallah, 15, 
Rysdyk and Hartford's dam. In addition there are strains direct 
to Grey Eagle, Sir Archy and Diomed. He is individually one of 
the fastest gaited colts of his age to be found, look where we may, 
and extremely bloodlike^ and in every way promising. He is ultra- 
fashionably bred, possessing the best performing blood from Al- 
cantara (21 in 2.30 list in 1890), and tracing directly to the greatest 
matron of the year, Jessie Pepper. 

There is little to risk, for' with opportunity he will become a 
trotter, and his opportunities on the Highland View mares are con- 
ceded to be first-class for the production of trotters, and the rec- 
ords show that the trotters descended from Jessie Pepper are 
among the gamiest and most level-headed ever to show in public. 
Prince Regent can trot in 2.14, as can ^gon, if not indeed faster; 
2.23:!: will not stop Irene — with another season she can undoubt- 
edly enter the 2.20 list easily. 

Taken all in all, there are few colts obtainable with as promising 
a speed inheritance as has this fellow, and with excellent bone 
structure and high finish we can but anticipate a brilliant future 
career for him either here or in the event of his being disposed of. 
In his two-year old form he will be allowed a few choice fillies 
from our stud.

Small Hopes. 

Third Dam, Madonna, by Untraced. 

Dam of Lady Mac, 2.23, held double 
team record with Small Hopes 
many years. 

Here is another pedigree rich in broodmare strains of great 
brilliancy : Nutwood being out of the famous producer, Miss 
Russell, which produced the Queen of the Turf, Maud S., 2.o8f, 
Nutwood, 2.i8f, with 49 in the list, Cora Belmont, 2.24^, Russia, 
2.28. Besides these Lord Russell has sired several, including 
Kremlin, 2.22^, trial, 2.18 at 3 years old. Nutula is dam of 
Maudlen, 2.25^, and Mambrino Russell sired several, including 


Happy Russell, 2.21^, he sire of Happy Bee, 2-year record 2.29^, 
on half-mile track. Nutbourne, trial, 2.26^, has two in the 2.30 
list. A wonderful record of speed transmittance ; and several 
others will undoubtedly be in the list, as Miss Russell is alive, and 
breeding each year. Nutwood was by Belmont, trial 2.28:^, and 
his dam, Belle, by Mambrino Chief, produced McCurdy's Hamble- 
tonian, 2.26|-, with 7 in the list, including McEwen, 2.18^, at 4 
years, Belmont, with 35 in the list, and Bicara, the dam of Pan- 
coast, 2.2 1|, famous as sire of Patron, 2.19I-, at three-years old, in 
a race; 2.14^, at 5 years, in a race. She was a daughter of the 
wonderful broodmare sire, Mambrino Chief, 11. Rex Nutwood's 
third dam produced Lady Mac, 2.23. Turn where you may this 
pedigree bristles with speed ancestry, and individually he is a great 
young horse^ and a promising candidate for turf success, possessing 
capabilities of high order as to speed. Nutwood sold at auction 
for $22,000, and has stood at the head of popular sires for six 
seasons, and as evidence of his success commands a fee of $500, 
wuth "book filled" for five years. A Nutwood weanling sold at 
private sale for $6,000, highest figure ever obtained to date. That 
Rex Nutwood will develop into a great young horse, there can 
scarcely be raised a doubt, if no unseen accident overtakes him 
previous to maturity. Horses of his individuality, by Nutwood, 
are not obtainable save at phenomenally high prices. 





Dark bay stallion ; foaled 1883 ; bred by Wm. H. Moody, Clare- 

mont, N. H. 


Son of Woodford Mambrino, 2.21^, sire of Abbottsford, 2.19I (sire of 
CoNDE, 2,20), Mambrino Dudley, 2.19! (sire of Crescendo, 2.24), and 

First Dam, Mary Curtis, by Volunteer Boy, 

Sire of dam of Fearnaught, 2.19, and 
obtained record his first heat in 
public, 2.i9f. 

Second Dam, Daughter of Black Sherman, 

Owned by Elijah Hoffman, Philadel- Son of Vt. Black Hawk, out of the 

phia, Pa. Hammill Mare by son of Bellfounder. 

Here's another pedigree built on the Mambrino Ch'ief Hamble- 
tonian cross and with a Morgan outcross. Woodford Mambrino 
started late in life, but got a record of 2.21^, and died before 
meeting the stud opportunity his breeding called for. He had 
same dam as Wedgewood, 2.19, the greatest compaigning stallion 
yet produced, and the only one to win all his races during the 
progress of a campaign through the Grand Circuit. Scutari was 
by a son of Mambrino Chief (his best son, so to speak), out of 
Sallina by Belmont, second dam, Susette by Pilot, Jf., third dam, 
Susan by American Eclipse, fourth dam by Woodpecker, fifth dam 
by Hephistion. He traces to Mambrino Chief twice, to Abdallah, 
15, Pilot, Jr., Hambletonian, 10, and has a rich thoroughbred back- 
ing. He is in appearance a remarkably handsome horse, re- 
sembling Woodford Mambrino very much, it is said, by visitors 
having seen both horses. In action, pure-gaited, level-headed, and 
a fast stallion any time developed. As a sire, his colts speak 
louder in his behalf than words. He gets a line to that sire of 
game racehorses. Volunteer, and also to three noted broodmares. 
Woodbine, Belle and Martha. 

As an outcross with blood of the Clay or Morgan families, he 
would meet his best success, and ought to produce a rare lot of 
performers. His daughters will stand inbreeding or will produce 
trotters to the cover of Wilkes horses. All in all, Scutari, Jr., is 
a first-class individual.

Almont Eagle, 2.27, Mammont (2 in Mambrino, 2.21 1, etc.; dams of Di- 
2.30), and the dam of J. F. Phelps' rector, 2.17, Piedmont, 2.17J, etc. 
2.27J dam. Sire also of Mambrino Patchen, the 

noted broodmare sire. 

Second Dam, Daughter of Grey Eagle, 

Son of Woodpecker, by Bertrand, 
one of' the best sons of Sir Archy, 
by Imp. Diomed. He was a credit- 
able 4-mile race-horse in his days on 
the turf. 

Almont Eagle is, in every way, a wonderfully well-bred stallion, 
and superlatively capable individually; Almont's dam being by 
Mambrino Chief, and from a Pilot, Jr., mare, and his dams are 
among Mambrino Chief's most successful producers. He is a 
much faster horse than his record indicates, and judges of expe- 
rience stated, during his training, that he surely could beat 2.20. 
Outside of Highland View his opportunities have been limited. 


We have here two which can trot in 2.25 to 2.20, and several better 
than 2.30. They will be trained and placed in the list another 
season (189 1) ; barring accidents will get fasts marks, and rank 
their sire among Almont's most productive speed-siring sons. His 
get are large, substantially fashioned, good-gaited, and handsome, 
uniformly; this, added to soundness and good dispositions, renders 
them very desirable for road use, where many have drifted after 
leaving their breeder's ownership. His sons breed a high class of 
colts, and from those among his daughters, which have been bred, 
we can show some remarkably promising speedy young animals. 
In every way Almont Eagle is desirable to head any stud in 
America. His own brother. Piedmont, 2.17:^, is fast proving his 
value at Palo Alto, though overshadowed many years by the great 
Electioneer. At the close of 189 1 Almont Eagle will be found 
among the foremost of Almont's producing sons, and whoever 
secures him will secure one of the richest bred developed sires in 
America. He can beat his record easily many seconds with a 
month's track work ; is roaded ten miles a day, and in the best 
condition for any use determined upon.

Volunteer Boy is a remarkably handsome bloodlike horse, and

uilh 2 in 2.30 list ; Green's Hambletonian, witli i ; and Heroine, 
dam of Shawmut, 2.26 ; and Martha on dam's side. He was a very 
fast horse himself, beautifully gaited, and went a mile in 2.27 ; 
could show a 2.20 gait, but met an accident which ^retired him. 
He has several which can beat 2.30, but have trotted to save 
records, though his value as a sire is attested by Fearnaught, 2.19 
(can trot in 2.17), which won fourth money at Hartford in the 2.20 
$10,000 race in 1890, and nearly beat Prince Regent the fourth 
heat. We have several by him, very fast, and they will be brought 
out in 189 1. Hattie Proctor should be a great mare. The Volun- 
teers are noted for gameness, soundness and longevity on turf or 
road, and the get of Volunteer Boy are not exceptions to the 

high grade gone before.

Here is richness for you : Administrator, by Hambletonian, to, 
out of a Mambrino Chief mare ; Almont, sire of his dam by Ab- 
dallah, 15, one of Hambletonian's best sons (opportunities con- 
sidered the best), out of a mare by Mambrino Chief and Ama, Vit- 
toria's second dam by a successful son of Mambrino Chief, the 
whole resting on a three-ply throughbred foundation, tracing each 
time through his most noted sons to Sir Archy, son of Diomed. Is 
it to be wondered at that Vittoria gets fast colts, of great courage 
and determination, fine finished, and is, as well, a fast horse him- 
self? No, it would be contrary to the laws of Nature were it 
otherwise. For an ideal broodmare sire he must be a grand suc- 
cess, and his daughters, \yhen bred to Wilkes' Mambrino Patchen 
sires, are going to produce remarkably fast performers. The 
Hambletonian Mambrino blood stands doubling, and always im- 
proves when inbred through excellent individuals. 

Vittoria is probably the best bred son of his sire standing for 
service, if, indeed, not the best in existence. Administrator never 
was afforded the opportunity, but by downright meritorious indi- 
viduality came into the front rank among sires, notwithstanding his 
obscurity. Several among Vittoria's get here are remarkably 
fast, and, when trained, will show very credi4:ably.

and Hambletonian blood produced the Mambrino family's best 
performers, so in this blending we have intact all the proven speed 
fountains. He can show a very high rate of speed, though never

This is great breeding. Blackwood, 2.31, could trot a 2.10 gait, 
and was out of a Mambrino Chief dam. Geo. M. Patchen, 2.23^, 
led all the stallions of his time, and got Lucyj 2.i8;|^ (see Evolutio 
for her roll of honor), and leaving these we go through Imp. Con- 
sternation to Imp. Trustee, to American Eclipse, grandson of 
Diomed, back to Sir Archy, best son of Diomed. Vittoria adds 
Hambletonian and Mambrino Chief blood. He is the fastest 
trotter ever bred here, and a great-gaited, level-headed fellow. 
His dam is in the stud, but will be given a record before again 
being bred. She is one of Blackwood's speediest daughters, and 
a grand broodmare. New England, at any price, is a good in-

Highland View is bred much like New Hampshire, and the 
same treatise as to the bloodlines is applicable to each. New 
Hampshire is one of the fastest ones ever bred here, and very 
handsomely proportioned, upheaded and of speed-promise : showing 
it in his every move whilst in action. Sound and of a cheerful 
disposition, possessing a rare amount of nerve force. 





iZITTMONT. 5995.

Fourth Dam, Daughter of Brown Pilot,

ViTTMONT traces on each side to Almont, and each time through 
him to Abdallah, 15, and Mambrino Chief ; also to Pilot, Jr. He gets 
a Clay outcross through one of the best of the descendants of Henry 
Clay, and it is well known that both Geo. Wilkes and Electioneer 
are by Hambletonian (sire of Administrator), out of Clay dams. 
He is inbred once remotely to Pilot, Jr.'s, sire, Pilot, a fast pacer, 
and of great individuality, judged by the contributions through 
his son's daughters to the 2 30, and notably the 2.20 list. Through 
Cassius M. Clay, Jr., he goes to the Imp. Diomed sire, Duroc, 
through American Eclipse, his best son, and through Commodore 
twice to the founder of trotters in America, Imp. Messenger. He 
has, all told, 27 strains to Imp. Messenger, and 7 to Diomed, 4 to 
Mambrino Chief, 11, 3 to Rysdyk's Hambletonian. A wonder- 
fully rich pedigree, as a more minute analysis will at once estab- 
lish. Every way he is a superlative young stallion, and of excellent 
finish, size, and can show a high rate of speed with great ease.

This pedigree bristles with great broodmare strains, great sires 
as well, and has the greatest thoroughbred strains in existence to 
back it up : Martha, his maternal granddam, a producer both of 



speed and producing sons ; Volunteer, dam, Lady Patriot, another 
wonderful matron, and on dam's side the great turf stars are near 
connections ; Lakeland Abdallah, sire of his second dam, a brother 
to the sire of the fastest performer to date. Mam. Dudley never 
had a foal but that trotted or produced speed, and Sue Dudley has 
two in 2.30 list, and each have 2.30 performers already. His fourth 
dam was sister to the well-known Woodburn producer, Maud, a 
great mare. In addition to Abdallah, 15, Mambrino Chief, 11, 
and Volunteer, 55 (to Hambletonian), Highland View has a line to 
Edwin Forrest, sire of dam of Mambrino King, the sire of Prince 
Regent, 2.i6|-, Mocking Bird, 2.16J, Henrietta, 2.18^, and Jocko, 
pacer, 2.165. Every line goes into thoroughbred blood, and it will 
improve on examining into the breeders of the most famous per- 
formers bred that way, for the reason that identical strains are 
found among their direct ancestors. If breeding of this sort fails to 
produce a performer of merit, or a sire of speed, it will be a seldom 
found exception. He is one of the choicest, individually con- 
sidered, stallions in New England, and fit to be placed in any stud 
collection in America.

Second Dam, Daughter of Capt. Walker, 

Sire of dams of Harry Wilkes, 2.13^, 
Charley, trial 2.15!, and 3 others. 

Here is another pedigree with a triple infusion of Mambrino 
Chief blood. There are, in addition, two out-crosses to pacing 
blood of productive merit. 

On sire's side to Pilot, Jr., sire of dams of Maud S., 2.o8|, Jay 
Eye See, 2.10, Nutwood, 2.i8|, etc., and through his dam back to 
sire of Harry Wilkes' dam. He is not a large one, but very pow- 
erfully made from head to heels, and no inclination to mix or 
amble. His trotting action is beautiful and he may go very fast if 
he were trained. Nelson,|, Maud S., 2.08^, Harry Wilkes, 
2.13^, Manzanita, 2.16, and others, are in a measure indebted to 
the pacing brood for their speed. Almate's pacing strains are 
those identical ones which have best resulted when introduced into 
trotting pedigrees heretofore. He will sire speed beyond a shadow 
of doubt, and is one of the nicest roadster stallions ever foaled. 


Note. — Indian Hill Farm has a yearling out of a daughter of Kitty 
Walker's, sired by the young stallion, Indian Hill, by Princeps, which they term 
the fastest colt ever foaled there, and the list of record trotters bred there in- 
cludes Trinket, 2.14, Epaulet, 2.19, and others, consequently the compliment is a 
great credit to Kitty Walker as a speed progenitor. The dam of this colt is in 
foal to Axtel, 2.12; service fee, $1,000.

Collie is a magnificent rangy bloodlike mare, an excellent pro-

They show speed and testify in every department as to the dam's 
qualifications for broodmare use. She is one of the finest bred 
mares in the land, as a careful analysis of her pedigree will show. 
Lakeland Abdallah with proper opportunities afforded him would 
have been a wonderfully successful sire. He was early taken to 
a locality more interested in breeding draught than trotting lines.

Marjorie is one of Almont's best bred daughters, and highly

horse. Dr. Chew, her breeder, considered her one of the most 
finished and elegant mares in Kentucky, as was her dam, the Com- 
modore mare. She produces invariably a fine type of beauty ; from 
suckling form to maturity they never lose their marked symmetry 
of proportion. Marjorie will produce speed at Highland View, 
and we expect a rare foal when we mate her with Evolutio.

TwiSTWOOD traces twice to Imp. Trustee, the great 20-mile trotter, 
and is a mare remarkable for her beautiful finish, intelligence and 
high nerve force. She can trot in or near 2.30, and is very nervy 
but well behaved. At twenty she will be as graceful as she is now. 
Her sire, Blackwood, could go quarters in 32 seconds as a three- 
year old, and sold for $25,000. He yet lives at an advanced 
age, sound as a dollar and rugged. The Blackwoods are a speedy, 
dead game, long-lived lot of trotters, and campaign successfully. 
They are so highly organized that it becomes necessary to be very 
gentle in training them, though not "rattle-headed" necessarily. 
When bred they are a grand lot of producers. That the blood 
breeds on Blackwood, Jr., 2.22^, has shown in his table of per- 
formers, having 5 in 2.30 and dam of another already. Daughters 
of Blackwood have produced Merry Thought, 2.22^, and several 
others. Twistwood's foals here will bear very critical exam- 
ination, and all show her elegance, and show speed as well of a 
high order.

Here we have a richly constructed pedigree, replete in its Mam- 
brino Chief dams, and with a line each to the famous 4-mile race- 
horses, Grey Eagle and American Eclipse. Her Abdallah, 15, blood 
never met better crosses than this combination furnish. Not a 
strain to a faint-hearted family, and with a Clay outcross as well as 
one to Alexander's Norman, a family which claims Lula, 2.15, May 
Queen, 2.20, dams of Norman Medium, 2.20, Norval, 2.17^ (sire 
of Norlain, i-year record 2.3 if), and nine more. Almawood is 
well qualified to pass down to her produce a high rate of. speed. 
She inherits it, and better still possesses it individually, is a beau- 
tiful, sound, stylish young mare. We shall probably train her pre-" 
vious to permanently retiring her from the stud. She has no '' slack 
places " and those who have looked her over are loifd in her 
praises. What a colt she will produce bred to Evolutio.

Third Dam, Hibernia, by Imp. Consternation.

Fifth Dam, Roxanna, by Sir Archy. 

Examine Scutari, Jr.'s bloodlines, then turn to Twistwood and 
weigh well the breeding values of this pedigree for broodmare's use. 
Individually she comes up to the standard of excellence it calls 
for, is nicely gaited, and should she be handled would undoubtedly 
trot fast. Her every movement is grace itself.

well known trotting mare Lady Thornton, 2.26^ (dam of Virginia

Robert Burns' dam was by Old Hambletonian, 2d dam by Thos. 
Jefferson, son of Mambrino Paymaster, Jr., 3d dam, a daughter of 
Mambrino Paymaster. Thos. Jefferson's dam was also by Mam. 
Paymaster, giving three direct strains to Mambrino Paymaster, 
sire of Mambrino Chief, 11, the great sire of Lady Thorne, 2.i8|.

Black filly; no white; foaled 1888; bred at Highland View. 
Sire, ALMONT EAGLE, 2.27. 
First Dam, Crystal, by Robert Burns. 

Second Dam, Fanny Lambert, by Daniel Lambert. 

The Mambrino Chief blood, technically speaking, is the back- 
ground for this pedigree. Robert Burns traces three times to 
Mambrino Chief's sire, and Almont Eagle twice to Mambrino 
Chief himself. Daniel Lambert throws in a strong dash of the 
best Morgan, backed by Abdallah and American Star strains. 
She is a very excellently well-bred filly, and can trot quite a bit, 
though it is, of course, all natural speed, for she has not had a 
moment's handling.

Black Pilot, 2.30; he the sire of Pilot Knox,^2.i9|; he, in turn, 
sire of Pilot Bird, 2.22!). Black Rose is dam of the dams of 
Hermes, Heptagon, Abdalbrino, Maxion, Parmenus, Princeps, Pluto, 
which have totally produced 40 in 2.30 list. Primrose produced 
Ichi Ban, 2.29^, Redwald, 2.28J, and the dam of Chichester, 2.25^- 
(sire of Stornaway, 2.30). Belmont brings in a producing dam as 
well. Every line to a producing dam, and, as endeavored to illus- 
trate the best and most positive " breeding on blood " in all the 
stud-book., She is a beautifully-gaited, fast, and handsome young 
mare, and worth, in these days of advanced breeding, $10,000, to 
be mated with any sire of prominence. How can she miss being a 
great producer herself.

Jersey Wilkes, sired by Geo. Wilkes, dam Lady Patchen (dam

best thoroughbred blood : Messenger Chief, sired by Abdallah 
Pilot, he out of Blandina (the dam of five sires), by Mambrino 
Chief; second dam, Burch mare, dam of Rosalind, 2.2 if ; his dam 
was by Mambrino Messenger, by Mambrino Chief, and second dam 
by Mambrino Chief is dam of Gen. Geo. H. Thomas, 2.30, sire of 
Annie H., 2.20, Scott's Thomas, 2.21, etc., a famous Tennessee

backed with several direct lines to Mambrino Chief, twice to the 
blood of the greatest son of Imp. Diomed, Sir Archy. 

LoREEN is in foal to Rex Nutwood, a commingling of the Abdal-

This breeding is elegant so far as it extends, and composed of 
animals excellent indiYidually. She is a fine young mare and half 
sister to Scutari, Jr., one of our best young stallions ; a trotter of 
promise and will be a good producer. Individually she compares 
with any on the farm.

Elfin calls for more than passing notice. She is inbred to the 
great Volunteer, the founder of the gamest, nerviest family of 
campaigners ever started, and she goes back to the sire of the 
greatest Morgan (Daniel Lambert) ever foaled, which had few 
opportunities but overcame all obstacles, and contributed 39 trotters 
and dams of 24 more to the list.

Nettie Goodwood is a grand mare, and her yearling by Vittoria, 
good judges say, could show better than a three-minute gait, loose 
in the paddock, and strong, pure gait. He at once makes a reputa- 
tion for Nettie, for, bar all accident, it will be a very easy task for 
him to trot in 2.30 at 3-years'-old form. The mare is very nicely 
bred in true and tried lines, traces direct to the famous Geo. M. 
Patchen, king of the turf during his years, and gets through the 
Champion's the blood of Almack. Nettie 'iBurlew was a terribly 
speedy mare, and could doubtess trot a quarter at a 2.08 gait. She 
frequently went halves at a 2.12 gait in her work. She inherits 
speed and can trot quite fast untrained, but is needed at Highland 
View for broodmare use. That she will be very valuable as a 
producer, we think none who ever saw her or her produce will for 
a moment question.

This is a great young mare. Her foal here by Allectus (son of 
Alcantara), Quintuple, can show, loose, as much speed as any we 
ever saw at same age, and individually is a beauty. She is bred in 
well-tried lines. Hartford was out of Belle, said to be by Hamble- 
tonian, lo, but registered once as by that horse himself, again as by 
''a Hambletonian horse." Rysdyk was out of Lady Duke, by Lex- 
ington, granddam by Medoc. Jersey Lily could trot in 2.25, but 
was bred before entering the list. 

Hartelle is herself beautifully gaited, a nice finished mare and 
finely coated winter or summer. She must produce a fine line of 
foals judged by the first one, Quintuple.

manding high prices, and not obtainable at that, as well bred on

value even in these days of advanced breeding, as Bell Hamlin,2.i2f, 
Guy,|, Pamlico, 2.i6|, and others going back to Black Hawk

cross-country ride of forty miles, and return, without being at all 
fatigued, yet doesn't pull a pound. Her breeding is very good — 
a double Morgan foundation and the Abdallah Mambrino Chief 
top-cross. Statistics show that the old-time Morgan blood mingles 
with the more fashionable strains in the veins of Nelson, 2.iof, 
Axtell, 2.12, and a number of others among the bright stars either 
before the public, on the turf, or in the stud.

Easter is designed as a broodmare ; was purchased especially to 
mate at reaching her third year with my young stallion, " Evolu- 
tio," getting in the prospective foal the blood of all the great sires, 
Nutwood, Alcantara, Geo. Wilkes, Young Rolfe, Happy Medium, 
Almont, Alexander, Norman, and the famous broodmares, Miss 
Russell, Lucy, Gretchen, Alma Mater, and the great performers. 
Nelson,|, Goldsmith Maid, 2.14, Lady Thorne, 2.18^, Lucy,

Rolfe, 2.2 1^, Geo. M. Patchen, 2.23^, Katie Jackson, 2.25!. There 
will be no greater bred one to have been foaled than the issue of 
Easter by Evolutio. She is not for sale, money won't buy her, 
and individually she is a perfect young mare, which we value only 
second as a breeding requisite to sound ancestry.

Third Dam, Nipper, by Geo. M. Patchen, 3.23:!-, 30. 

Oakwood is the fastest colt of his age we ever had here. He can 
show more speed and more stride in the yards than termed 
average speed limit for unbroken yearling form, and must, with no 
accident or set back, become a very fast horse. His action is per- 
fect and he is a very large colt for the age. Horsemen who have 
seen him, all pronounce him a wonderfully-gaited colt, and -a very 
promising one for turf honors at maturity.

This is grand breeding, and better even than good breeding ; 
Silk Boy is absokitely perfect at every point. Evenly balanced 
in his every movement, and a trotter from heels up. He is unusu- 
ally handsome, of good size, and beautifully coated. We have 
determined to keep him a stallion, thinking he will be quite up 
to our standard of excellence.

This breeding is excellent. Mam. Russell's dam, by Volunteer, 
is a sister to Stephen G., 2.20^, second dam being by Knicker- 
bocker, and produced Stephen G. Mambrino Russell sired Hal- 



dane, Happy Russell, AUie Russell and others, and was out of 
Miss Russell, dam of Maud S., 2.o8f, Nutwood, 2.i8f (19 
in 1890 in the list), Cora Belmont, 2.24^, Russia, 2.28, and Nutula, 
dam of Maudlin, Lord Russell, sire of Kremlin, 2.22f, at 3 years 
old. We get the great broodmares. Miss Russell, Lady Patriot, 
Woodbine, a mighty triOj and of invaluable speed productive influ- 
ence. Everything which was produced by each has either trotted 
or produced performers, and their performers are great campaign- 
ers and hold the low down records. Gen. Knox, with limited op- 
portunities, did wonderful service to the trotting interests of Maine, 
and established a family which, whether possessed of 2.30 speed 
or slower, " all trot some." No one ever saw a Knox which 
couldn't show some sort of speedy inclination. The Patchen 
blood and Drew are valued outcrosses. Louella C. is a very 
promising filly and will be a great broodmare. Will be bred to 
Rex Nutwood, doubling the Miss Russell blood in the produce.

Comment on this breeding would seem well nigh superfluous. 
It is replete with strains directly to successful sires, and the dams 
all round were all producers of attested value. She is a smart- 
gaited miss, and we expect her to show well when thoroughly 
broken. In conformation she is about perfect, and much admired 
by those who have seen her.

Eagle Wilkes is considered as handsome as the great show 
horse, Mambrino King, by some, and is certainly a very handsome 
horse under any judging. Kathleen compares in point of breed- 
ing favorably with almost any her age. She has the Wilkes, Al- 
mont, Abdallah, 15, and best of thoroughbred backing, tracing 
three times direct to Sir Archy ; and on the sire's side three great 
4-mile runners are represented : Grey Eagle, Wagner, and Lexing- 
ington. Individually we are confident she will meet the approval 
of those her rare breeding may attract. From any standpoint she 
is a superior young filly, and after we trial her at maturity she will 
go into the stud, where she must needs be a grand producer.

This filly is one of the finest bred ones to be found, look where 
one may. No better trotting strains exist, and the broodmares in 
existence with such influential strains as Consternation, Eclipse, 
and Sir Archy, together with the Trustee blood, render it almost 
beyond comparison, unless one be bred in identical lines. Very 
clean cut, and a pretty gaited little miss already.

will be a fine yearling.

Medina is a large, well made, good-looking colt, elegantly col-

promising young horse. He is very nervy, stylish as a young 
peacock, and comes naturally by it all ; his sire and his dam's sire 
both are elegantly finished stallions.

When we interweave the blood of Almont, Geo. Wilkes, Wood- 
ford Mambrino, Abdallah, 15, Mambrino Chief, Belmont, Volun- 
teer, Cass. M. Clay, Jr., and the best background of thoroughbred 
sires in the Stud Book near at hand, it ought to be termed gilt- 
edged. When the strains were begotten by the highest representa- 
tive sires in these families it is advancing, as they are many times 



much better bred than are their sires. Add to all this the great 
producers, Belle Dudley, Mme. Dudley, Primrose, Woodbine, 
Belle, Martha, Lady Patriot, and there is hereditary excellence on 
every limb of the tree. Peerless ought to be a successful sire, a 
fast trotter, and yet is but a yearling as yet. Few colts are as 
well qualified for the stud as he, and whatever families may be 
fashionable a few years away, we think the " boom " will still be 
" on " in his families.

Volunteer, 55. On dam's side Solitaire gets more Mambrino 
Chief- Abdallah, 15 (twice), with a phenomenal thoroughbred back- 
ing. She is the first of her young sire's get, and is a very credita- 
ble tribute. It would be hard to. exact a more perfect head and 
neck than she carries, and from end to end there seems no flaw in 
her make-up. Every one who has seen her has commented on her 
rare finish and beautifully colored, sleekly-laid coat. She knows 
nothing but trot, and for a weanling is extra attractive in action, 
and shows quite a deal of juvenile speed, loose in the yards.

Hunter Jr.'s dam by Colby Horse, 
a son of the Barker Horse. 

Second Dam, Daughter of Flying Morgan. 

Hattie Proctor is a typically finished Morgan, fine, yet com- 
pactly made, and of grand substance on every hand. She is a nervy, 
resolute mare, possessed of indomitable courage and rare intelli- 
gence. With her high temperament, she is level-headed, and can 
undoubtedly with a season's handling, trot in 2.25. 


Gray mare ; foaled 1882 ; bred by John Jones, Claremont, N. H. 
Sire, ALMONT EAGLE, 2.27. 

Dam, Jones Mare, by Metcalf Horse, 

Son of Vt. Black Hawk. 

This mare could be trained a season with prospects of entering 
the 2.30 list, for she is speedy, well behaved and good gaited, very 
reliable, and a very nice mare.

Dam, Daughter of Almont Eagle, 2.27. 

Second Dam, Leet Mare, by Abe Rogers, 

Son of Black Hawk, 5. 

The Abe Rogers Horse made a record of 3.00 over 30 years ago. 
Bellrice will develope into a superb, fast roadster, with possibilities 
of speed. He is very handsome.

Sire, ALMONT EAGLE, 2.27. 
Dam, Brock Mare, by Perkins' YoUxVG Morrill. 

These geldings would make very elegant gentlemen's driving 
horses, are handsome, bold movers, and extra stylish and nicely 
gaited. Frank B. is one of the most elegant large horses we ever 
saw harnessed.

Son of Surprise, by Vt. Black Hawk, 
sire of Ethan Allen, 2.25I. 

Second Dam, Nelly, by Rip Van Winkle, 

By Vt. Black Hawk. 

Third Dam, Farley Rosseter Mare. 

Surprise was out of a daughter of Black Hawk, 5, hence Dandy 
is highly inbred to the famous Black Hawk family. He is a very 
elegant horse, up-headed, handsome, very pure gaited, and can un- 
doubtedly trot in or very near 2.25 with regular track work. A 
Boston gentleman made a fair offer (for an undeveloped horse) last 
spring, but we preferred to bring him out or sell to one who would 
afford him a turf education.

C. M. Clay, 18; dam Schamyl, by son of Vermont Black Hawk ; 2d dam by The 
Warner Horse, he by Long Island Black Hawk; 3d dam by Fireman, thorough- 
bred son of Sir William. Neeley's Henry Clay was out of Sue Letcher, by 
Norman, sire of Lulu, 2.14!, Kate Crocket, 2.20, etc. Norman was by The 
Morse Horse, he by European (McNitt Horse) ; dam by Hambletonian, 2 (Har- 
ris), son of Bishop's Messenger; 2d dam, Mozza, by Peacock, he by Imp. 

Clay Abdallah is a grandly bred horse. He left some few 
colts, so we give an extension of his breeding for reference. He 
is now added to the list of geldings, and a very fine roadster, with 
promise of speed.

Third Dam, Daughter of Thoroughbred Tormentor. 

Estella was purchased to get the blood of Belle Brandon (dam 
of Gov. Sprague, 2.20^^, sire of 24 in 2.30 list), one of Hamble- 
tonian's best daughters, and of Amy, 2.20:^, one of Volunteer's 


producing and performing daughters ; together with the blood of the 
great broodmare, Well's Star, dam of the great stallion, Artillery, 
2.21^, and Modesty, 2.26. She is a wonderfully well-bred filly, a 
superior individual, and bred to Evolutio will produce one of the 
very highest bred animals to be procured even in these days of 
advanced breeding. Is of good size, and well adapted at maturity 
for broodmare use.

Second Dam, Jessie Havnes, by Don J. Robinson, 451, 

Sire of Jessie B,, 2.24^. 

• This filly is destined to become a broodmare at Highland View, 
and when mated with Rex Nutwood the produce will carry two 
strains to Pilot, Jr., through his best daughters. Miss Russell, dam 
of Maud S., 2.o8f, Nutwood, 2.184- (51 i'l 2.30 list), Cora Belmont, 
2.24^, Russia, 2.28, Nutula (dam of Maudlen, 2.25^), Maudlen, 
2.25^, Lord Russell, (sire of 3 in 2.30), Mambrino Russell (sire of 
5 in 2.30, and grandsire of 1 at 2 years), and Waterwitch, the dam 
of Viking, 2.19^, Mambrino Gift, 2 20 (7 in 2.30), Scotland, 2.22^, 
Waterloo, 2.23!, Wavelet, 2.24^, Fairy Belle (dam of Nymphia, 
2.26:|), Sprite (dam of Egotist, 2.22I-, Sphinx, 2.23, and Spry, 
2.28^), Naiad (dam of Stornaway, 2.29^) ; this will make quite a 
trotting inheritance, and that is what we are aiming to secure, 
along with individuality. She is a nice filly every way. Don J. 


Robinson was by Marshall Chief, 452, sire of Dr. Lewis, 2.24, 
dams of A. V. Pantlind, 2.20:^, and Betsy Ann, 2.22^, and four 
sons, sires of 2.30 horses. Robinson's dam. Lady Bates, by Ham- 
bletonian, 10; 2d dam. Belle of Richmond, by Bathgate's Norman. 
Marshall Chief is a grandson of Vermont Black Hawk, and out of 
a Morgan mare. 

Tremont was by Belmont, out of Virginia, by Abdallah, 15 ; 
2d dam, Grey Goose (dam of Champagne, 2.30), by Nottingham's 
Norman ; 3d dam by Brown Consul. We get the blood of Belmont 
doubled, as Waterloo was a son of that great sire. There are 
producers in every line of this filly's rich pedigree, and it will be 
very discouraging if she herself doesn't become a great speed- 
producer when she shall be bred to Rex Nutwood. The produce 
of Belmont are breeding on very commendably.

sire of Walkill Boy, 2.24, and

Second Dam, Valley Belle, by Mambrino Boy, 844, 

Sire of dams of Axtell, 2.12, and 
Allerton, 2.13I, Champion Stallions 
at 3 years and 4 years old. 

Third Dam, Daughter of Sir William Wallace. 


Fourth Dam, Mambrino Belle, by Mambrino Chief, ii. 

Sire of Lady Thorne, 2.18^, and 
Woodford Mambrino, 2.21^, etc. 



In all the stud-book it is very doubtful if the superior to this filly 
in matter of great broodmare lines could be found. She has three 
lines to Mambrino Chief, 11, the great Hambletonian-x\merican 
Star cross the blood of Mambrino Boy, sire of dams of the greatest 
three-year old, Axtell, 2.12, and greatest four-3'ear-old stallion, 
Allerlon, 2.13^, both of which stand at a service fee of $1,000; 
then to the remarkable producer, Waterwitch. It is wonderful, 
but the sort of animals w^e consider best adapted to produce trot- 
ters, and what we have aimed to secure, to give opportunity to our 
young stallions, Rex Nutwood and Evolutio. Comment on Water- 
loo has already been made, so it is not necessary to lepeat it here. 


Sire, ALMONT EAGLE, 2.27. 

Dam, Leet Mare, by The Sheldon Horse, 

Son of Morgan Empire, he by Empire 
State, son of Duroc, Morgan Em- 
pire's dam, by Woodbury, son of 
' Justin Morgan, 

This pedigree is short, but a rich commingling of Abdallah-Mam- 
brino Chief blood with that of the stout, hardy Morgan, and tracing 
direct to the fountain head of the founder of the great family — 
Justin Morgan. She is a handsome, highly-finished mare, and 
speedy as well.

- Sire, SIR WALTER, JR., 2.18i. 

Dam, Lady Ashley, by Kentucky Wilkes, 2.21^, 

Sire of Virginia Evans, 2.24, and 
Astoria, 2.30. 

Second Dam, Maragold, by Black Cloud, 

Own brother to Lady Stout, 2.29, and 
sire of Charmer, 2.27. 

Third Dam, Polly Farragut, by Admiral Farragut, 

Dam of Theresa, 2.304-, and Ethan Son of Young Quaker, by Harris's 

H. Drew, 2.33^, mile track. Hambletonian. 

Fourth Dam, Daughter of Young Morrill, 118. 

Sire of Fearnaught, 2.23|-, etc. 

Sir Walter, Jr., 2.18^, was much faster than the record, and 
showed a trial at five years of 2.17^ over Fleetwood track. He is 
by Sir Walter, 2.24:5^, sire of three in 2.30 list, and out of a daughter 
of the great broodmare sire, American Clay, the rest of his breed- 
ing tracing directly to the best thoroughbred sires. Sir Walter, 
2.24^, was by Aberdeen, 2.331-, sire of Modoc, 2.19, Hattie Wood- 
ward, 2.15^, and many others, and his dam by Edward Everett, 
sire of Judge Fullerton, 2.18, and many others. Aberdeen, 2.33^, 
was by Hambletonian, 10, out of the fastest daughter of American 
Star, 14, Widow Machree, 2.29, one of the gamest mares ever 
trotted; so pronounced by the late Dan Mace, and other excellent 
authorities. We not only get the greatest Hambletonian-Star 
cross, but the Hambletonian-Clay strain, from which came Elec- 
tioneer, Geo. Wilkes, and St. Julien, among the trotters. Note the 


speed progression : 2.33^, 2.24^, 2.18^, and she is gaited so to give 
the hope that these figures may yet be lowered. On the dam's 
side we get Kentucky Wilkes, 2.21^, on the best of Geo. Wilkes' 
sons, and is producing trotters, though but a short while in the 
stud. The second dam is by Black Cloud, son of the great brood- 
mare sire, Mambrino Patchen, 58, and a horse, own brother to Lady 
Stout, 2.29, the first to attain that record as a three-year-old. 
Black Cloud's dam produced Lady Stout, 2.29, Black Diamond, 
2.29I, and Jeb Stuart, sire of Kitty Patchen, 2.21^, and others, also 
Mambrino Time, sire of two in 2.30, and the dam of Silverone, 
2. 19 J, also Black Cloud, sire of Charmer, 2.27. Polly Farragut, 
her third dam, is a producer of speed, for Theresa trotted in 2.30^, 
while heavy in foal, and Ethan H. Drew has a record of 2.33!- on a 
half-mile track. We consider that in point of breeding Queen 
Wilkes is in the very front rank; few there are carrying the blood 
of the great sires, Geo. Wilkes, Hambletonian, American Star, and 
Mambrino Patchen, as well as the American Clay outcross. She 
is what w^e have tried hard to secure for the Highland View Stud.
