Bruce writes:\nUNCAS (WINNER OF THE KENTUCKY STAKES AT SARATOGA AND WESTCHESTER CUP AT JEROME PARK NY)\nUncas will be used as a private stallion in the Brookdale Stud Monmouth County, near Holmdel NJ. Mr. D.D. Withers proprietor. Uncas is a blood bay stands 15 _ hands high, with his right fore foot white, and a small star in his forehead. He is quite a compact, well and evenly-formed horse all over, having a neat head and neck with good shoulders and depth of girth, with extra good body, hips, stifles, and excellent legs and feet. The pedigree is one of the best in the Stud Book and from a distinguished racing family. His dam is by Glencoe's best son, and he traces back through an own sister to Glencoe, to a Natural Barb Mare. If the blood of Lexington and Glencoe is to be preserved to the country, it is through just such pure channels as Uncas presents.\nFrom the Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred:\nBrookdale Farm, which stood the nation's best stallions, boasted the finest bloodlines in its broodmare band, and provided a superb training facility utilized by industry giants named Withers, Keene and Whitney. At the farm's height, more than 100 employees kept things running smoothly, and hundreds of horses galloped over the fertile soil. D.D. Withers created it, Colonel William P. Thompson had great plans for it, legendary Hall of Fame horseman James G. Rowe Sr. utilized it, and Harry Payne Whitney preserved it. For more than a half century, Brookdale Farm was the base of operation for some of the most powerful stables in the world. The Sporting Art Auction
