COLONEL VENNIE UNABLE TO RACE NOW, Jefferson Livingston, owner of an extensive band of racers, most of them now in the east, departed for New York Thursday morning, where, after a brief visit to transact business, he -will motor to Saratoga and remain -totakc in the racing there until the final week. He intends taking witli him several clerks and secretaries to look after immediate pressing business matters as they may arise. Mr. Livingston was not overly enthusiastic about his racing prospects for Saratoga, because his best horses have gone amiss. It is also doubtful if his good English horse. Colonel Vennie, will round to in sufficent time to take part in the Saratoga racing. If he does, it will not be until the latter part of the meeting. Royal II., winner of the .1915 Latonia Derby, was a hopeful prospect for Saratoga, but he sustained an injury in the Latonia Independence Handicap running that put him completely out of action and ho is, at present, with others of the Livingston horses, resting at Louisville until the fall racing there begins. "I have at present eighteen of my horses listed for sale," said Mr. Livingston. "My chief reason for selling is that I want to make room for. youngsters that I have bought in England and which are due to arrive here shortly."
