MAY DISSOLVE PARTNERSHIP. J. W. Schorr and J. O. Keene Likely to Sell Entire Stock of Keeneland Stud. By Ed Cole. Saratoga, N. Y.. August 15. It is in the air that a dissolution of partnership is imminent between John W. Schorr and J. O. Keene, both of whom are Interested in the Keenland Stud. Mr. Schorr intimates that if private arrangements are not made, there will, be a sale of all the stock on the farm at the Kentucky sales next fall. The stock consists of twentv-eight :bxdmares. sixteen weanlings and the two stallions. Luke M.eLuke and Froglegs." It is just a difference ot opinion in the affairs of the farm that will bring about the dissolution, if such takes place, there being no ill feeling between the nartners. Interviewing several of the best experts and handicappers after the Valor race, they were almost ; unanimous in their- opinions that Valors victory ;was chiefly due to the fact that neither Chiclet nor Woodtrap are even respectable mud runners. One or two thought that had Schuttinger made his move earlier lie might have won, but even that was : questionable. James Gaffney, who was prominent in the turf world ten years ago, -came here for a few days recreation. "I am still in love with the horses," :said Mr. Gaffney, "and maybe some dayIll buy a few just for fun, but not this year, as my business would deprive me of the nleasure of seeing my colors in action. After the war is over, I may be with you all again." John Hylan, democratic candidate for mayor of New York, arrived today with u few other political .associates. Theodore Rosseau, secretary to Mayor Mitehel. :came from New York this morning oil a few days vacation. It is only a few years ago that Mr. Rosseau was writing turf articles for New York papers". He will stay here until Friday.
