The Australian bloodhorse ranks high among the thoroughbreds of the world. His history dates back to the first decade of civilization in Australia. He & his progeny played a leading part in the exploration o& development of a new & vast continent. Their performance in India, Africa, & later on in the Holy Land is an epic of endurance never equalled in military history. The records of the colonial horses on courses of his own country show his excellence as a racehorse. Despite handicaps of acclimatization he has gone abroad to win important contests in the older countries of the Northern Hemosphere, & to set world records. He has contributed to the best breeding strains available in the world today.He is truly thoroughbred. Previous owner has written their name at the top of the first endpaper & and title page.
