KILMER HORSES GOING TO MARYLAND His Stable, Including Sun Briar and Exterminator, to Be Shipped to Havre de Grace. BY EDWARD W. COLE. SARATOGA SPRINGS, N. Y., August 2C There is every reason to believe many of .the stables here will dodge the Belmont Park meeting, according to reports on future location of some of the more fashinable owners. From all accounts the colors of W. S. Kilmer will be seen at Havre de Grace as soon as that meeting opens; in fact, Henry McDaniel has practically arranged for the shipment of the Kilmer horses to Maryland from here, including his two best Sun Briar and Exterminator. Wm. McDaniel will also ship the horses he trains and owned by Scnor Diaz of Havana to the Mary-laud tracks as soon as he can obtain transportation. The loss of these two stables to the New York tracks will certainly be felt, especially in the handicaps, for the absence of Sun Briar and Exterminator will take much out of the contention in such races, top-notch handicap horses being few and far between at the present writing, with little likelihood of the number being increased for the fall meetings. Cudgel and Naturalist, and probably Lucullitc, should have things pretty much their own way in the handicap division, unless Mr. Vosburgh should relent somewhat and lower the weight off the middle and lower class handicap candidates. Horsemen believe these classes should be given more consideration and a better chance if possible, as records show that few of the middle and lighter weighted horses in handicaps have shown to advantage this year, nearly every event of importance having been won by the first division. All the Schwartz Bros, horses are on their way to the New York tracks; in fact, some of them Terminal next Saturday. They are in charge of John Hastings as usual. This means that Enfilade has run her last race at this meeting. Crest Hill will no doubt be a candidate for the cross-country events to be run on Saturday, and will also be ready for the Belmont Park steeplechases later on. KING PLAUDIT IN RACING CONDITION. Geo. Odom will ship his stable of about six horses, including. King Plaudit, to Belmont Park as soon as they, can be loaded. King Plaudit is coming around finely and may be a starter before the fall season has run out. This colt has been a partial disappointment to George Odom, as well as an unlucky sort of a horse. Early in the year his owner thought him a good .horse, and his prospects were bright, but accident and incident has interfered with his money earning possibilities. Mr. Odom says he might yet turn out a really good horse; in fact, he "has hopes," as the saying is. George is one of those philosophical trainers who take their ups and downs with the grace of true sportsmen, laughing at defeat as well as victory, as the case may be. The J. K. L. Ross colors will be carried by his representatives in both the Kings Plate and Nursery Stakes that will be decided at Blue Bonnets track next Monday. Jockey Loftus will probably go to Montreal and ride in both the features. Preston Burch will leave Friday for Jamaica with the John Sanford horses, which will be raced over the Long Island tracks. Kimball Patterson will ship the McClelland horses to Maryland as soon as he can get away. William Martin goes to Belmont Park at the close of the meeting with his horses and those belonging to Frederick Johnson. Experts on jumping horses predict that Crumpsall will make a rare good jumper. He is schooling wonderfully well and shows the earmarks of a champion.
