SARATOGA BECOMING FAST Valor Runs Close to Sun Briars Record for a Mile Golden Broom Makes His Debut Debutand and Shows Great Speed but butLoses Loses by Running Out SARATOGA SPRINGS N Y August 4 South and east again clashed this afternoon on whnt was regarded as even terms and the honors went to the invaders when Valor carrying the colors of William Martin triumphed signally in the Lake George Han ¬ dicap atT one mile which featured the card The easterners mainstay was Enfilade running in the silks of the popular Schwartz Bros The betting duel by supporters of the pair waxed terrific at one stage and the horses alternated in favoritism at different stages At post time however the mare had the call There were five starters in the race but Leochares Buford and Blairgowrie came in for only scant attention though many iri the big throng could not resist for sentimental rea ¬ sons to have a wager on the veteran Leochares This old stager gave a remarkable exhibition and almost ran the best race of his career to land in second place in the second fastest race ever run here Sun Briars performance for a mile last year when he established a record of 136 being one fifth of a second faster than theSitiraeinade njr Valor today The winner showed a tremendous flight of speed from the start and led Enfilade nnd Leochares by a good margin with the pair seem ¬ ingly done before reaching the half Valor con ¬ tinued with fast stride in the stretch and Enfi ¬ lades challenge was withstood without apparent effort The Schwartz mare under the discouraging conditions tired fast in the last sixteenth and Leochares challenge for second place prevailed but he was not good enough to overhaul Valor Avhich won in a canter and had Callalian urged him to his utmost he would have wrested away Sun Briars laurels for the mile record recordConsiderable Considerable interest centered in the running of the final race in which a number of firsttime starters including the mnchtalkedof Golden Broom the highestpriced yearling of last year made a racing debut Golden Broom raced to the high ex ¬ pectation of his connections with the exception Hint he ran out which cost him the race The loss of ground he incurred by coming wide was more than ample to have given him a winning margin His speed was dazzling at the outset and he headed the leaders in a twinkling while going down the backstretch but he kept on for the outer fence tin the far turn and the stretch bend likewise was rounded awkwardly with the result that Harry Payne Whitneys Truly Rural and J McClellands lIiiHtcn On as well as Arrow Point in G W Scotts rotors managed to beat him home Golden Broom was equipped witli blinkers and he showed a hesi ¬ tating Inclination on the way to the post Some shrewd horsemen held to the belief that his action was due to the blinkers and also blamed bis running nut to the fact that he was prevented from seeing fully where he was going His next start will more than probably witness him reversing todays decision with those which finished in front of him himOEESTES OEESTES VICTORY POPTOAB POPTOABOrestes Orestes carrying the colors of a prominent Ha ¬ vana sportsman won a popular victory in the fifth race in which some good ones started and to which he conceded much weight But his victory was in the main due to the skillful ride he received from Loft us who clearly outgeneraled the diminu ¬ tive Fator who had the mount on Huttontropc j The latter displayed a high order of speed from the start and with more skillful riding would prob ¬ ably have outstayed the heavily weighted Orestes by virtue of his weight concession Canso was t a short price and given heavy support but after being held under sharp restraint for the first half mile collapsed

green excepting the winner which showed nptltude at this style of racing and went over all the obstacles with the exception of the final one like a veteran crack He made a bad landing at the last hedge but his recovery was prompt He was then a full jump in frout of The Dean the Only one of the others that did not fall and the run to the finish found Bachelors Bliss only cantering at a leisurely pace Man o th Hour the last to fall was remounted by his rider Borgan nnd finished in time to take third place Harwood and Klsmer fell together in the early stages of the race Bachelors
