Looks like Illinois trainers are buying up lots of horses at the Fall Speed Sale ...
Even with piss poor purses many many horses have already been purchased that will be racing at maywood park and balmoral park .
Looks like a majority as expected are being purchased by Ohio residents . With the slot bill Ohio has i can understand why but it baffles me why so many Illinois buyers . With the price of hay straw and feed how can these trainers who rarely win races afford it . Maybe they have owners who have cash to toss out the window .

THE ILLINOIS SPEED SALE

THROUGH THE MEDIUM of the one-day sale of the Illinois Horse Sale Company, held at Princeton, Ill., on October 25, the selling values of near to a hundred horses were proved as satisfactory to the breeders and other sellers who sent consignments there for disposal. The leading offering for the sale was that from Hon. Henry Knauf's Siskiyou Farm, which sold nineteen yearlings, bred at the well-known nursery, and sired by the farm stallions. The number brought an aggregate of $13,960, or an average of $734.74.

The top figure of the consignment, which was also the leading figure for the entire catalogue, was $4,000, which was paid for the yearling colt, Grand Siskiyou, a son of Spud Hanover 2.03, and Taffy Hall, the Laurel Hall mare that produced Flash Siskiyou, the good youngster that raced with success on the half-mile tracks in Illinois this year, taking a record of 2.101/2 in the process. The purchaser was the Arden Homestead Stable of E. Roland Harriman, whose liberal purchases have been accentuated by the sensational performances of Titan Hanover and other juvenile stars of the year.

While restricted in numbers, due to the regretted misfortunes that have followed throughout the year, the lot from H. J. Schmoeger's Ankabar Acres was in real demand, with the high price coming on Ceorawin, daughter of Mc I Win, 3, 1.593/4, and Ceora, 2, 2.043/4, thus a full sister of Orawin, 2, 2.151/2, that made such a notable campaign on Illinois tracks this year. This filly sold for $950 and went to J. A. Moore of Kewanee, Ill.

Altogether, the outcome of the auction was very satisfactory, and quite certainly marks the affair as a regular event for coming years, with emphasis on its advantages for the breeders of Illinois and surrounding states. The auction, as with previous ones of the organization, was under the management of Ben McAllister of Henry, Ill., who handled it efficiently and helped much in achieving the price appraisals that resulted.

THE ILLINOIS SPEED SALE
THE FIRST sale of the Illinois Horse Sale Company, held October 19-20-21 at the Princeton, Ill., Fair grounds was a successful venture for the owners, breeders and trainers who cooperated in what is believed will be the first of a number of similar annual events. Eighty head were sold, with consignments from the well-known speed nurseries of Ankabar Acres, the property of H. J. Schmoeger, Washington, Ill., and Siskiyou Farm, Princeton, Ill., owned by Senator Henry J. Knauf. Ankabar Acres' stallion, Mc I Win, 3, 1.593/4 contributed the top-priced yearling, Darwin, dam Hazel Direct 2.081/4, by Napoleon Direct 1.593/4, which went to the Elkhorn, Wis., reinsman, Art Shaw, whose latest star performer was the good pacer Lusty B., that Mrs. James Johnson Jr., bought last fall out of Shaw's stable at a very attractive price. Kaywin, 2, 2.15 also by Me I Win, brought $600 and was taken over by Dr. G. E. Van Tuyl, Paullina, Iowa, and will be raced by his father-in-law, Jason Henry, known over the years as one of the successful trainers and drivers of the middle west. Whizwin, yearling son of Mc I Win and out of the young Hal Dale mare, Belle, sold for $475 and became the property of Harry Fitzpatrick. Another by the same sire named Cheewin, out of Miss Peterwin, by Chestnut Peter, brought $525 and was bought by G. W. Ault, Kirkland, Ill.
Siskiyou Farm entries also obtained good prices. Eddie Siskiyou, a yearling, and bought by Omar Amundsen, temporarily located at Taylorsville, pending the return of the Illinois State Fair grounds by the Army, bought the colt for $625. Eddie is out of Leora Hart 2.121/2, by General Watts, 3, 2.063/4, the well-known mare who is the dam of Iona Hart 2.04, record taken at Lexington during the last meeting. Elva Siskiyou brought $400 going to H. W. Chaon, West Brooklyn, Ill. Henry Warwick, owner of Warwick Farm, Westfield, Ind., and also owner of Harvere, 2, 2.051/4 the 1936 two-year-old champion, bought a yearling by that sire, named Etta Siskiyou, dam Jessie Hart 2.151/4 by General Watts-Jessie being an own sister of the aforementioned Leora Hart 2.121/2-for $350. This filly was pronounced a very promising trotter. What appears to be an outstanding bargain of the sale is the yearling Eric Siskiyou, by Siskiyou, and out of Vivian Allen 2.091/4, by Lord Dewey, Vivian being the dam of Jane Allen 2.021/4. As might be expected Midwest Stables picked this one off. Dr. Van Tuyl's second purchase was the well-bred two-year-old, Dottie Siskiyou 2.19, out of Schuyleta by Schuyler, sire of St. George 2.001/2, etc. She also goes into the stable of Jason Henry. Carl H. Preis, Pana, Ill., also sent a likelylooking bunch to the sale, a number being by the rising sire, Dominion Grattan 2.00, now in service under the auspices of Midwest Stables. The speedy Billy Jane, a two-year-old pacer raced this year by Midwest, is rated a coming sensation. He was little short of that last summer, and is a son of Dominion Grattan.
