sale all the prominent horsemen showed their anxiety to secure him although he was knocked down at 89000 a little more than half what he cost as a threeyear three old The first bid was 523000 through Auctioneer Easton and Sydney Paget Page promptly raised it 1000 W L Powers who it is said was acting for J B Haggin Haggling went 1000 bettor and these two monopolized the bidding until Sydney Paget Page offered 36000 Then S Sanford took a hand in the game with a bid of 37000 but Sydney Paget Page hung on and after all the others had enough W C Whit ¬ neys nays shrewd racing partner secured
