The Futurity was inaugurated in 11*88, bo that only the earliest winners have had time in the stud to make a mark, says a writer of the Inter-Ocean. Proctor Knott, by Luke Blackburn, dam Tallapoosa, the first winner, was a gelding, and therefore a nonentity so far as breeding goes. In 1889 the winner was Chaos, by imp Bayon d'Or, dam Lilly R. He was also a gelding, so that the first two winners must be left out of consideration and we come to 1890, when the first colt was a winner, viz, Potomac, by imp St. Blaise, dam Susquehanna, by imp Lsamington, out of Susan Bsane. by Lexington. The distance was then six furlongs, and Po- tomac won in 1:14 1 5, and placed to his credit $67,675, the fastest the race was ever run up to that date and the most valuable Futurity before or since then. Potomac wis a good race horse during his three seasons on the turf, and during his stud career sired a number of winners, each as Roy Carruthers. Myrtle L., Manassas Bappahannock, and others, but none of sufficient stake class to give him rank as a first-class sire. With his excellent breeding and good opportunities he has practically, so far, been a disappointment in the stud. He is, however, a com- paratively young horse, being only 12 years old, and there is yet a chance for him to become prominent if he happens to strike the right nick. The winner of 1S91 was His Highness by imp. Ill Usedi dam imp. Princess by King Tom, out of Mrs. Lincoln by North Lincoln, who has gone rapidly to the front and stands as one of the leading sires of the country. He was the champion two year old of 1891, and was a good race horse at three and four years old. In the stud his success was in- stantaneous, having to his credit the great colt Jean Beraud, High Degree, who was second to Martimas in the Futurity of 1394; Prince of Wales,
