GOSSIP OF THE TURF. Allan-a-Dale, the colt that went wrong after win- ning the Kentucky Derby, is to be placed in ing again. T. C. McDowell, his owner, has stated that the son of Halma Sudie McNairy will be shipped to Saratoga from Lexington within the next three weeks to join his string, which will include Requital and Inventor. Allan-a-Dale gained a neck victory over Inventor in the Kentucky Derby, and then both met with reverses. A day or two later it was found that Allan-a-Dale was lame, and then Inventor developed distemper. Since Mr. McDowell left Kentucky Charles Marvin, the well known trotting horse driver, has been looking after Allan-a-Dale. He reported to Mr. McDowell that the colt is recovering and expressed the opinion that he will train again. Mr. McDowell says he has great confidence in the judgment of Mr. Marvin, and, acting on his report, has sent instructions to ship Allan-a-Dale east to try for the rich events. Mr. McDowell received word that Requital and Ifrventor will arrive here today from LexingioBw Requital, winner of the Futurity and Realization stakes, has been in the stud for several seasons, but; it has been decided to mako an effort to race him again. He is going sound, and Mr. McDowell hopeB to-have him in shape for the Saratoga meeting. Ha. said yesterday he thought it the first time a horse had been bred extensively and raced in one season, but added that ho is always trying something new Ogden and Isidor were both raced some time after the breeding season closed.
