BROWNE DISPERSAL SALE THURSDAY. Many Winners of Brownleigh Park Breeding Corporation to Go Under Hammer at Saratoga. New York, August 1. The opening sale of the Saratoga season will be the dispersal of the racing stable of the Brownleigh Breeding Corporation, the horses in which have been racing and winning in practically every section where racing is held, victories having been scored under the Browne solors at Hot Springs, in Kentucky, at the metropolitan tracks and at the various race courses in Canada. In fact, the corporation has maintained three racing stables, and the band will be brought together to be sold at Saratoga on the evening of Thursday, August 2, in the new sales paddock of the Fasig-Tip-ton Company. The most highly valued colt of the band is King Herod, a son of the great Colin Acolat, by Pioneer. This youngsters started at the early Maryland meetings, winning three straight races, but met with an accident that put him out of training. In his last start he was sent to the outside fence by the starter and in some manner got astride of the fence and was forced to remain in that position for seven minutes until a saw could be obtained and the fence cut down, lie pulled up lame, but has now fully recovered, and Dr. McCully, who took care of the colt, is of the opinion that he is again sound. Mr. Browne firmly believes that but for this accident, King Herod would have been able to hold his own with the best of his division, and as he will be ready to race again by the middle of August, he is entered at Saratoga. Others in the consignment are Irish Kiss, a two-year-old winner of four races this year, and a son of Orpiment Soligena, the produce of which in England included the stake winner Wet Kiss, Land Lubber, two years old, a winner this year; African Arrow, a winner of four races this year as a two-year-old; AAMnsomvera, a two-year-old winner; Mr. Dooley, a two-year-old winner; Low Degree, a two-year-old winner, and Boy Blue, which also has won this year as a two-year-old. Among the older horses is Josefina Zarate, a winner the past four years and a winner of no leas than eight races to date in 1917; Gunbearer, a winner in England and the United States; Moonlight II., a winner over the jumps this year, including the Mount Washington Steeplechase at Pimlico, and the three-year-old winner this year, Crumpsall. In all, this dispersal contains many useful horses and probably a larger proportion of two-year-old winners than any sale that will be held this year.
