There are some better three-year-olds in action this year of extra good three-year-olds than McCartcr, hut not many, lie is the best representative Knight of the Thistle has sent to the races as yet, a. fast, sturdy and reliable young horse that can render a good account of himself Jn any sort of company and is liable to beat, the best out if held too cheaply by a. cureless rider. As, a two-year-old ho won but two purses and one stake race, but. in several of the great races "for two-year-olds he kept the best of the year busy to prevent hlni from coming in first. Ills first start was in a purse for maidens at Belmont Park, four and a half furlongs, Slay 11, 1900. He was a driving winner Trom Moyea and W. H. Daniel in 55. May 1C he won the Bouquet Stakes from Claie Russell. Bcmay and seven more at five furlongs in a minute flat. A purse at Brighton Beach in which he gave Electioneer twenty pounds and a beating was his other success of the year. It was Electioneers first start in a race and not suggestive of a. subsequent Futurity winner. MeCarters best races were when be was defeated. In the Saratoga Special he finished second to Salvidere, with Peter Pan, Ballot, De Mund and Charles Edward behind him. All carried full stake weight and the three-quarters was covered in l:12j.

Subsequently McCaiter ran second to him in the Waldorf Stakes at Sheeps-head Bay. This year McCartcr has been a busy and successful racer and has scored five wins out of ten races, with such important events as the Cosmopolitan and Saratoga Handicaps to his credit. His first start was in a inirse at Jamaica, in which he won from Halifax, Inquisitor. Don Domo and four more at five and a half furlongs in 1:07. In the Toboggan Handicap, at Belmont Park he was unlucky and ran unplaced to Ben Ban, Pautoulle and Red River. At Gravesend he defeated Dreamer, De Mund, Prince Hamburg. Hyperion II. and Faust over the "about" three-quarters course for a purse in 1:09JS. Then came his first important success when he won the Cosmopolitan Handicap at Belmont Park May 27.

July 5, Caboehou, carrying 1015 pounds to Ills 114, defeated-him in the Spindrift Stakes at Sheepshead Bay at a mile and an eighth in 1:53s.
