The success of four favorites and a second and third choice, both heavily backed, served to put a big crowd in good humor at Oakland today. Messrs. .T. Grant Lyman and, AV. E. Applegate brought off big winning coups in their respective representatives, Graceful and Quickrich, and Barney Schreiber is reported to have won ,000 over the victory of Deutschland. The noted New York horseman, J. B. Brady, greatly admired the big Sain Derfargilia horse and it is within the bounds of possibility that lie may acquire him for stud purposes. Graceful was bid up from 00 to ,000 by .T. B. Smith, but was retained. Jim Neils Corrigan-bred mare, St. Agnes, foaled twins to Yankee Doodle today, but both died. Bearcatcher is ailing.
