J BARGAINS FOR A MERE SONG Small Prices Realized for A. K. Macombers Offering of Aristocratic French-Bred Horses. SARATOGA. X. Y., August 0. Good bargains were secured here Saturday night at the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga sales ring, when the consignment of A. K. Macomber. which had been sent from France, was offered for sale. It rood mares of royal lineage, some with foals at side, elicited but listless competition and ultimately were knocked Jown at what was considered bargain prices. Then-is no accounting for these small prices, unless it oubl bo put down to the fact that it -was an off night, such as comes now and then, or that there was general unfamiliarity with tlie pedigrees of the offerings. War Star, which, in a -Kentucky Derby trial, finished before North Star, according to the statement of trainer W. P.. Jennings, and which is the Viro of several foals, went to 11. TV Oxnard for the significant suni of S3.100. Tchad, winner of the rix du Jockey Club of 191! French Derby, worth l.13ri,rcr francs, went to Krownell Coombs for f3,100. War Pond and Krumado. the former a half-brother to Kit of Klack. went to J. I Holland on his respective bids of Sl.LOO and ?2,!00. Krumado lias been a winner in France as a three and four-year-old and also this year as a five-year-old. There were eighteen brood, mares sold; seveii were with foals at side, which were disposed of at the ame time of selling their dams. They aggregated the total of .3S.200, an average of S.FJl!. The star of this contingent was the eight-year-old mare fribble, with bay colt at side, sired by McKinley, to which she has again been bred. Tribble and her foal were bought by K. R. Rradley. master of Idle Hour Farm, for :Si,000. Powder Puff, another mare bred in the purple, went for 81,700 and. was secured by W. It. Miller, who will send her to Keaumont Farm. She was bred in France this year to War Cloud. The dozen yearlings that went under the hammer attracted only desultory attention and they realized in aggregate of ?13,i50. an average otl.VJ7. The thirty-five sold for a total of 02,."23,. an average! of .1.7."S. The complete sale follows: Stallions. Tchad, b. or br. h.
