If a horse is scratched from a parlay, it still remains effective on the other or others. It seems by analogy that when action on the first horse in a parlay is barred by a time limit, it should act as a scratch does and the parlay stand good as to the other horse or horses. W. S. Van A., Brooklyn, N. Y. While riding abroad in 1900. Tod Sloan accepted a proposal made to him by W. C. Whitney and returned to this country expressly to ride Ballyhoo Bey in the Futurity of that year, which he von. with Olympian second and Tommy Atkiu third. Sloans compensation for the trip and successful ride was a matter of privacy between himself and his employer.
