KENTUGKIANS FARE POORLY Western Turfmen Find It Hard to Win at Saratoga. Success of Trainer William Kar-rick an Outstanding Feature of the Meeting. BY T. K. LYNCH. SARATOGA SPRINGS, X. Y., August 21. One of the outstanding features of tlie Saratoga meeting has been the success, of the horses trained by William Karrlck. Up to date lie lias saddled ten winners, seven from the W. It. Coe stable and three from the Oneck Stable. The three-year-old Over There, owned by Mr. Coe, has shown particularly good form, and his -mile in 1:40 oer a muddy track on Wednesday marked a splendid performance. Purchase ran his mile the same day; in l:42Vf,. Win. Garth has also been much in the limelight. lie has sent eight winners to the post, all from the stable of Ital Parr. The two-year-old Blazes, by Wriick Blazing Star, accounted for three of the Parr victories. This youngster evidently is at borne -In heavy going as well as on a fast track, ..Hid on what he has already hown he is more than a useful sort. The . colors" of the Canadian turfman, Commander T. K. L. Boss, have come down in front in six races. One of the surprises of the meeting has been the poor showing made by the stables that were shipped here from Latonia. In former years the Kentucky Jiorsinen usually uncovered some pretty shifty racers at Saratoga, and they were always able to hold their own with the big stables that came up from the" New York tracks. This year it is different, :iiid the score to date shows that in only seven races have the Kentucky horses been returned winners. Beck and Call accounted for two of them, while the other winners were Miss Jemima, "Wise Man, Clara Martin, Binding Tie and Kilkenny. Much was expected of the Thomas McDowell stable with his much heralded two-year-old High Command. The hitters only remaining engagement here is in the Grand Union Hotel Stakes, to be run on Saturday. The Glen Riddle Stables crack youngster, Man o War, is an eligible for this stake. The Howard Oots and M. Lowenstein stables suffered several disappointments. Lowenstein won a race with Kilkenny, only to lose him through the claiming route, and they have decided to wait for the Kentucky fall meetings before making any further attempt to retrieve their losses. BACK TO KENTUCKY THEY GO.. Tho Gallaher Brothers did no good with their racers and shipped them back to Kentucky a few days ago. They were the first of the western division to pull up stakes. W. Perkins left last night -with his big band of racers, and H. H. Hewitt shipped on Wednesday last. The Ogden Stable was particularly unfortunate. The useful Grundy was claimed after he was beaten a few days ago, and the good mare Looking Up was badly cut down in her last start. Trainer Miller Henderson was particularly sweet on Looking 1ps chances in this race and was confident that she would have won and broken a track record Imt for the accident. Of tlie western jockeys Robinson has been the most siiQcessful. having ridden a. half dozen winners. S. Boyle and A. Johnson rode two each. Jockey Eddie Ambrose, who has been out of the saddle for a week or more as a result of injuries sustained when the racer Tl:os. F. McMahon fell, lias recovered sufficiently to warrant his riding rtgain and will be back in the saddle on Saturday. .Ambrose is one of the best of the older division of hoys riding here. Simon Healy was much discouraged when the Kilmer racer Vancouver was jumped on and badly out. down in the second race on Wednesday. "I dont know how good a horse he was," said Healy. "He was lame last sprng, but I fnally got him to joing sound. In his first start he finished third; :ifter getting away poorly, but he came back and won the next two times he went to the post. He was a horse that could run all day, and I was pointing him for the 0,000 Latonia Championship Stakes, to be run in the fall. Dr. McCully is niak-ingi every effort to save him, but I dont know whether he will succeed or not." Stuart Polk has arranged to ship to navre de Grace on Monday. The stables of J. J. Farrcll, Jr.. A. h. Goodwin and Geo. Peterson go in the same cur. A division of this consignment will be sent to Timpnium from Havre de Grace. K. K. Bryson ships jiis stable toMuryland some day next week. Eugene Lutz received word from J. Rouprich that the five-year-old mare Trend had died of acute indigestion at the Rouyrich farm in Jefferson "Parish. lax S. Levine, recently appointed magistrate in New York City, was an arrival.
