CAYE ADSUM IN A CANTER. LOWERS HIS HALF-BROTHERS TRACK RECORD AT KENILWORTH PARK. Another Half-Brother Finishes Second to Him Watkins Back with Hayman Lowe Returns to Hildreth. Buffalo, N. Y., June 2S. The program at Kenil-worth today was an ordinary one and all but one of the races were easily won. Luzetta, in the opening race, was the only one that had to stand a drive to win. Followers of the favorites scored in all but two instances, Trouveur and Luzetta being the outsiders that helped even up the losses which the books sustained on the afternoons transactions. In the fourth race Cave Adsnm established a new track record for a mile and a sixteenth; by running the distance in 1:452, two-fifths of a second better than the previous mark, held by Dr. Spruill, a half-brother to todays winner. Both horses were bred by William Jennings and both are out of the mare Mabel D., the former being by Compute, while Dr. Spruill is by Dutch Roller. Solon Shingle, which finished second to Cave Adsum in todays race, is also out of Mabel D. The fields iu a majority of the races were reduced by scratching and this was passing strange, as the track was in excellent condition. The start in the first was poor and was responsible in a measure for the defeat of the favorite, Lexington Lady, whicli was ridden by Joseph. Hogg. It was this boys first appearance in the saddle since his accident at New Orleans last winter. Lexington Lady finished fast, but was not able to get to the leaders being beaten out a length and a half at the finish. In the- second race Barney Schreibers Seymour Beutler made a show of liis opponents. Cave Adsum won his race by ten lengths. Trouveur made a runaway affair of the fifth race. Paniqile had to be much the best to win the closing race. He was unfortunate at the start in breaking slowly and was forced to work his way up on the outside. The race was a selling affair and when offered for sale a stranger appealed on the scene and boosted him 00 over his entered price of 00. The horse was protected and bought in. Maurice L. Hayman disposed of three of his horses this afternoon. Dr. J. F. Aitken was sold to .Tule Garson; Giovanni Raggio to J. W. Pangle. and Pretty Dolly to Samuel Lazarus. Mr. Hayman left for New York tonight, but will return ne,xt week and make further reduction in his big string. During his visit here Mr. Hayman arranged with R. E. Watkins to enter his employ again. Watkins will take charge of the division of tiie McCarren-Hayman stable, which is being trained by John Lowe. Lowe, it is understood, will go back to S. C. Hildreth, with whom he was connected for several years. Watkins left for New York last night to arrange for the transfer of the Hayman horses to his barn. It is understood that the Hay-mans will release jockey Englander at the close of the present meeting. Jockey Goldstein left for New York tonight. He will ride George S. Davis and Flavigny at Sheepshead Bay tomorrow, but will return to Buffalo in time to ride at Kenilworth on Monday.
