STAMINA IS DISQUALIFIED WHITNEYS CRACK FILLY FIRST IN THE ALA ¬ BAMA STAKES BUT IS SET BACK The Stake Goes to Sanfords Mayfield Jockey Du DuBan Ban Suspended for the Meeting and andFined Fined for Fouling Saratoga N Y August 0 Conditions which Involved racing over an exceedingly slow and muddy course were responsible for the disqualification of Stamina after the AVhitnev lilly had finished first for the Alabama Stakes at Saratoga today Dis ¬ qualifying a winner in a valuable stake race is a rare occurrence particularly when the racing is attended by muddy track conditions The last case of note in the cast occurred just 1en years ago when Martimas the Futurity winner of that year was set hack after vanquishing a big baud of twoyearolds in the Flatbush Stakes at Sheepshead Hay Despite the smallness of the Held going to the post the race developed into as thrilling a spectacle as has been witnessed in recent years being marked throughout by the fiercest sort of rivalry between horses and jockeys which culmi ¬ nated in a savagely contested struggle in which every horse in the race suffered more or less from damaging interference Stamina which had been running under a pull in nearest early pursuit of the pacemaker Reckon presently relinquished that position to 3layfield and was content to follow the two leaders for another quarter or until beginning tlio bend for home where she moved up on the outside and ranged alongside the pair At this critical moment for the favorite Beckon Lore out sharply carrying Mayfield which was in the middle AvitU her and causing the latter to collide violently with Stamina Both lillies nearly went to their knees and it was almost a miracle that they escaped falling Straightened out for home Shilling and Diigan engaged in a hammer and tongs finish The advantage of an outside position was with the Whit ¬ ney jockey SMimina under incessant whipping and while swerving was able to draw out right at the end and score by the margin of one length from Mayfleld her equally tired swerving and seemingly impeded opponent Tho fact remains that jockey Shilling did not lodge a claim of foul even when importuned to do so by the Sanford trainer AV llayward Jr saying that his mount had not suffered mv Interference from the winner winnerRacesroers Racesroers were not kept in suspense for the instant the clerk of the scales weight announce ¬ ment was received the stewards signaled the dis ¬ qualification of the leading horse and Staminas number came down with a rush The change was received in absolute silence by the spectators and there was no repetition of the scene of enthusiasm 4hat marked the victory of Sir John Johnson an ¬ other Sanford horse on Tuesday The Whitney trainer A J Toyner accepted his hard luck with philosophical indifference saying The stable hoo ¬ doo is certainly with us and there is no use crying over spilled milk milkThe The history of the Alabama Stakes since 1001 is isYear e Year Winner Wt
