THIS YEARS CROP OF SALE YEARLINGS. Dates of Shipment of Kontucky Consignment to Be Sold at Saratoga. Lexington, Ky., July 21. The period for the disposal of thoroughbred yearlings having arrived, there is more than ordinary activity on the breeding farms in this vicinity. A few yearlings were sold in New York during June and a few, notably the crop from the AVickliffe Stud of Messrs. Cor-rigan and McKinney, have been shipped to Gravescnd to be broken and trained. Some twenty-five or thirty, that have been purchased privately by persons intending to race them, are at the Kentucky Association track and have had their first lessons. During the week, the first of the consignments that are to be sold at Saratoga were shipped out. It consisted of nineteen head from John E. Mad-dens Hamburg Place. The next shipment will be a carload from R. T. Wilsons Kirklevington Farm. They go to Saratoga to be sold. Others will be broken there under the eye of trainer Tom Henley. Next Saturday a special train of five cars will take to the Spa the yearlings imported from England by J. O. Keene for a syndicate composed of Messrs. Keene, George J. Long and John AV. Schorr; those bred by Messrs Keene and Schorr at Keencland Farm; those imported from England by Phil T. Chinn for John A. Drake and those bred by John S. Barbee at Glen Helen Stud.
