THE MACK AY SAT.E. Sabatoga. N. Y August 12.-There was a large attendance of prominent horsemen from all over the country at the Mackay sale, and society graced the occasion to an extent hitherto unknown and unheard of in America. As far as known George J. Gould was not a bidder. The star of the sale was, of course, Mexican, and R. T. Wilson, Jr., secured him for 0,000, with the understanding that J. E. Madden still retains a thirty per cent, contingent interest in his winnings should he be returned the victor in the Futurity. The price obtained was held to be disappointing in view of the recent several bona fide offers of 5,000 for the colt at private sale. Orlando Jones-, who formerly owned and raced that good horse, Leonawell, has re-entered the ranks of owners by purchasing Acefull for ,600. Great things are expected of this colt, as his private work has been phenomenally fast and he has size and confirmation and looks the highest type of a thoroughbred. Heno and Brunswick showed signs of recent fir ing. The former has a bad knee and is also troubled in both ankles. He went to L. M. Myers bidf ,500, whowas acting" for John Daly, and was the bargain of the sale.. He is one of the " fastest horses in the world andin soft going can defeat the best sprinters in training and carry top weight. J. J. White, owner of Athlana, which was placed in the first race "won by John A. Scott, claimed Drakes colt Allan, which was the heavily backed favorite but could do no better than a poor third. It appears that Enoch Wishard, John Drakes trainer, just failed to get his own claim in for Athlana. Allan, which had won the Graduate stakes at Chicago for his first owner Pat Dunne, at ,610, was secured for only a fraction of his real value.
