SANFORDS WILL KEEP CAUGHNAWAGA. Saratoga, N. Y., August 9. It is not likely that General Sanford will contribute Caughnawaga to the Jockey Clubs breeding bureau, for two reasons. General Sanford is not certain good results will be got by the farmers through the introduction of thoroughbred blood into their every-day work horses, and he wants Caughnawaga for Hurricana Farm. The General realizes that "Old Cock" did not have as much early speed as the average stallion retired to the stud these days. But he believes him to have been one of the games t and truest racers that ever wore saddle. The progeny of Caughnawaga and some fleet Laureate and Potomac mares, General Sanford believes, will race as fast and far as horses are asked to go.
