NO SARATOGA DERBY THIS YEAR. Announcement of conditions for the Saratoga stakes was made ill Ihe last issue of the Baehag Calendar. The list is the same as for previous years, except that tlie Saratoga Derby has heeu dropped. The values of some of the minor events have been slightly increased, but the executive very wisely decided to make a substantial increase to the overnight purses rather than to the fixed events. The overnight piogiam when it is announced will be pleasing to the owners of the smaller stables. More money for the overnight races will also have the effect of bringing better entries, and the racing as a whole should be greatly benefited thereby. The entries close Monday, March 4.
