FAYETTE MAY RACE IN CALIFORNIA. New York. December 17. John E. Madden has ordered Fayette shipped to Washington, and it is possible that this crack Ogilen colt may go to California with the other horses of the Madden string , that will 1k sent west in charge of Peter Wimnier. Fayette, should he be sent west, would 1k a noted addition to the crack racers now performing on the coast tracks and would certainly make it, interesting for the best of them. . Madden has always maintained that Fayette is as good a colt as Sir Martin, which lie recently sold to -Mr. Winans of England, and while his performances last year do not equal those of Sir Martin still they were such as to stamp him a superior-class colt. While no definite announcement of the shipment of Sir Martin and Edward has .been made, it is likely that they may be shipped next Saturday. Ed A. Tipton of the Fasig-Tipton Company, will leave for Florida before the end of the month for his annual vacation. Mr. Tipton said that while adverse racing conditions affected the sale of thoroughbreds this year, still a number of satisfactory sales were held, especially the McGrathiaua Stud sale, which was an event not to be forgotten in turf history.
