Thrcc-Year-Old Son of Ethelbert and Ioni3 to Bs Shipped Across the Atlantic Forthwith — Cherryola Wins Vaasar Stakes. v. Saratogas N. Y., August 22. — As a feature this afternoon s ottering of the Saratoga Association was the VaSaar Stakes, for threc-yi ar-ohl fillies. The fact that it was under selling conditions naturally prevented such a filly as Ocean Bound appearing iu the Beid, but it furnished a first-class contest, iu which • John T. Irelands western , filly. Cherryola, proved best and won nicely in hand by a length and a half from Jac |uelina, with the sprinter, Follie Levy, third. The day was bright and the track fast, conditions that helped to bring, out a remarkably good Monday crowd aiid from the first race to the last the sport was of the first class. Some of the winners furnished a bit of surprise ami the start in the first race marred its running considerably when Hill Top and Live Wire, two undoubted contenders, were almost left at the post. But tiiese untoward incidents did not prevent a thoroughly interesting day Of SIKHt. S. C. Hildreth today sold his great three-year-old colt, Dalmatian, to Louis Winans. and the son of Ethelbert — Ionis will be shipped to England shortly for racing on the other side of the Atlantic. The parch— e was made by F. Vivian Gooch for Mr. Winans and it was reported that the price paid was 0,000. Mr. Winaus is the sportsman who purchased Sir Martin and Edward from*-John E. Madden at the close of their two-yvear-ohl season. Sir Martin was bought in the hope of winning the Epsoin Derby of 1900 ami he went to the post the favorite. He fell in the running of the race and many who saw the race have expressed the opinion that he would have been returned the winner but for the accident. , Dalmatian has proven himself the best three-year-old of this year. Intil his recent defeat in the Merchants and Citizens Handicap Saturday. hH had a remarkable list of victories that included the Empire City Handicap from older horses. His best race at Saratoga was the winning of the Travers. Other races that Tie has won Include the Coney Island Jockey Club Stakes. the Brooklyn Derby, the Sea Gate and Iroquois Stakes and the Vonkers Handicap. Mr. Gooch will make all arrangements for the early shipment of the great colt and it is doubtful if he will be raced again this season. A race that really was of more interest than the Vassar was the mile and an eighth handicap, which went to Superstition, a horse that has been giving a good account of himself over heavy tracks, for which it is known he has no special liking. Today the footing was hard enough to suit the son of Aldine and after he had raced with all the pace he came away with great ease iu the stretch to win in hand by half a dozen lengths. Bob R.. a slight favorite in the field, met with some misfortune iu the running and he was the one to take second place, easily beating Cheek. Cherryola, to win her race, had to catch FoUJe Levy and Mexoana. the ratter a starter from the stable of Richard T. Wilson. Jr. This pair went into a long lead in the first eighth and raced like a team almost to the stretch. There both tired and it was then that Van Benschote-n made his move witli Cherryola. Through the early stages the Ireland filly had been lengths behiud the pace, but when sh.-was called on she closed with a great rush anil Jacipielina. another that had failed utterly to keo|» pace for three-quarters of a mile, was the only one callable of giving her the semblance of a contest at the finish. The steeplechase of the day was for hunters, and it proved a two-horse race: from start to finish. Tim Donoliue rode old O. K. with such vigor that he was able to go along close to Prince Hampton, the favorite, for the entire trip. Prince Hampton always had it on O. K.. but the Ifizer horse was right with him to the last three fences. There Prince Hampton came away as Lynch pleased and at the firrish he had plenty in reserve. Only five started and Indiol.v was third only because Sam Ball unseated jockey Patterson four junqis from the finish. Fortunalely Pattersoa was unhurt, except for some slight bruises and a nasty shaking up. There was another fall during the day when May Amelia was jostled and went down right nt the. start of the fifth race. King had the leg up on her and escaped serious injury. After her tumble May Amelia was quickly on her feet and she raced riderless with the field throughout, finishing with Imitator, the winner. Chapaltepec was winner of the opening race after Live Wire had been practically left and Hill Top was away so badly as to have no chance and Ben Last a scored over nineteen other maiden two-vear-olds iu the last race.
