MKITTREDGE TO BECOME A JUMPER. Ben Ban and McKlttredge, . the disappointing half-brother to McChesney, have been sold by Herman Duryea to F. Ambrose Clark. It is Mr. Clarks intention to have both horses schooled for steeple-chasing. McKlttredge has been a great disappointment on the flat. As a yearling he was purchased at a big price and as a two-year-old raced iu many important stakes without success. This season as a three-year-old it has been the same story, his graduation from the maiden class being his only win. and that was something of a fluke, for it was by the disqualification of Disobedient in the Mohawk Selllug Stakes that the brackets went around his name. He is a well bred horse, built on lines that should prove an advantage in the new lino to which his efforts are to be confined.
