BRADLEY RIDER APPEARS PROMISING S Boyle Makes Good Impression at Saratoga H P Whitneys Vexatious Highly Bated BY ED COLE COLESARATOGA SARATOGA SPRINGS N Y August 8 Edward R Bradley may not have brought horses good enough to win races during the past four years at Saratoga but he las certainly Introduced a mighty promising apprentice rider If the work of young Simpson Boyle on Binding Tic and Kilkenny is to bo looked upon as the rule of this youngsters efforts and not the exception The boy has not had many opportunities here but his two victories yesterday sent his stock away up in the ap ¬ prentice market It was no so much the results that spoke but what the boy had to do to achieve the results On Binding Tic he had quite some mud thrown at him from the lenders Then he had to use judgment in choosing his course when he had the opportunity That he had the best horse under him is unquestioned but some riders can lose races even on best horses His work on Kil ¬ kenny was much more Intricate than that on Binding Tie In he Kilkenny race he was mixed up with a band of cheap selling platers from the beginning to the close of the race With such a band of scrambling uncertainties Boyle knew enough togct as clear sailing as possible and when oppor ¬ tunity arose for him to sit down anil ride his horse he was there with the goods and appeared to be as dexterous as the oldtimer and good riuer T Nolan Up to yesterday Boyle has ridden thirty two winners hence has but eight more chances with the bug allowance in this section but else ¬ where he has the remainder of a year from his first winning mount which runs into some date next winter his first victory being at New Orleans OrleansIt It is not generally known but H P Whitneys Vexatious winner of the Alabama Stakes was considered he best filly in the Whitney barns last year in fact James Rowe her trainer thought he possibly had A duplicate of Regret the Kentucky Derby winning filly For a time in the early spring of 1918 there were visions at Red Bank Mr Whitneys winter quarters that the filly stakes for babies were at the mercy of this rapid going miss the daughter of Peter Pan Contrary But fate decreed otherwise Vexatious was taken sick and was ailing for a long period coming to the races this year a threeyearold maiden In her first effort a few days ago she was beaten by Huttontrope Whether she was a bit short or not is a question known to the stable connections but Huttontrope beat her quite easily That her race on that occasion did her a whole lot of good she proved when she took the measure of Milkmaid in a surprisingly easy manner VEXATIOUS NEVEB F1TLIY EXTENDED EXTENDEDAt At no time during the running was Vexatious fully extended Twice Milkmaid tried to run up to her quarters but Ambrose simply let out an incli of line and slie went away again as if the race was just beginning There was a difference of twelve pounds in the weights of the two fillies in the Alabama Vexatious having the maiden allowance in arguing upon the future of the twq racers friends pit Milkmaid are inclined to the belief that Milkmaid will beat Vexatious when the weights are equal claiming thatrthe Whitney filly did not give the Ross representative a twelve ppund beating Opinions differ on that subject but on looks therej is no comparison between the pair Jn fact some of the Whitney contingent are willing to wager that Vexatious can beat Milkmaid with the weights reversed They will no doubt meet again before the close of the meeting and the event will be looked forward to with considerable interest Backers of favorites are squirming under punish ¬ ment since the meeting flatted here Few of the first choices have connected The rank and file are beginning to ook at all favorites with sus ¬ picion The wise handicappers are profiting by the downfall of choices for no other reason than many of the favorites have been quoted at ex ¬ ceedingly short figures and sonic of them come under the head of false favorites One shrewd haiidicapper said yesterday that there was no visible reason why Xndacious should have been made favorite over Thunderclap Had the race been threequarters there might have been just cause for iiis being placed at the head of the list but he had never been asked to gw a mile and there i3 always a reasonable doubt when such a question is asked of any horse that has heretofore shown nothing but sprinting proclivities Again in the fifth race yesterday St Qiieritin was quoted at an exceedingly short price according to individual handicappers considering he was asked to carry 114 pounds Favorite backers are not usually good handicappers but rely on the market for their tips Tliis is where the experts and cold form backers reap the harvest of their intelligence Kihnoul won lite nice so impressively that it is possible another Richmond is in the field for two yearold honors His victory in the Albany Handi ¬ cap puts a much higher value on Golden Broom which is also trained by Mike Daly the latter be ¬ ing a superior colt to Kimioul according to stable reckoning The twoyearold situation is beconi ing more perplexing every day or two and racing folk are getting1 anxious to see some Of the real gems get together togetherHorsemen Horsemen are enthusiastic over the prices paid for good yearlings In speaking of the colt by Ultimus Tsarina Jack Goldsborougli said If that colt is not a runner then it is no use trying to pick horses on looks He has everything that indicates his being a highclass1 horse Amos Krause an employe of the Schwartz Bros while working out a jumper after the second race had a badlooking fall He was taken to the Sara ¬ toga Hospital A diagnosis showed a broken collar ¬ bone combine with a bad shaking uy His injuries are not considered serious
