Mackenzie has entered Faux Col in the Saratoga Handicap, the Saratoga Cup and the Merchants and CltiW n- Stakes. George M. Ihn-drie has Rancher in the Saratoga Handicap. J. Betz. the apprentice who scored three winners out of four mounts at Havana Wednesday, is under contract to G. B. Burke. He :iad to put up rousing finishes on two of tin in Lord Wells and Bacon to save the bacon. That A. K. Macomber has designs on all the big stakes to be run during the year is suggested from tla- large number of 1 linations being made by trainer Walter Jennings to all the most prominent fixtures.
