KAI-SANG READY TO RACE Qualifies Handsomely to Contest Three-Year-Old Honors. War Mask Wins in Good Style Galantman No Longer a Maiden Racer. YONKERS, N. T., July 21. Kai-Sang came back to the races at Yonkers today in his first appearance of the year and raced in a manner to indicate that the Rmcocas Stable has been seriously handicapped in not i having his services earlier, lie ran like a i real race horse and made a show of his op- ponents in the Bronxville Handicap over the short three-quarters, under the top weight of 126 pounds. Under tnis weight he was giving away great lumps to all and there was no part of the race in which he was fully extended. Altogether it was rather a happy day for Sam Hildreth and the Rancocas Stable, for earlier in the day the news had come that the Appellate division had sustained the verdict of the lower court in the Playfellow suit. This was the action in which the sale of the brother of Man o War was set aside, and James F. Johnson, owner of the Quincy Stable, ordered to return the 5100,000 purchase price and take the colt back. The racing of the day was thoroughly interesting, but the return of Kai-Sang was easily the important event. It was only an overnight handicap, hut it served to show that the son of The Finn and Kiluna is well qualified to race to all the promise he showed last year, when he was rated as second only to Morvich. LITTLE CHIEF HELPS STABLEMATE. Hildreth sent Little Chief along to bear Kai-Sang company in the Bronxville, and he was a worthy running mate. He forced the fast filly AAishbone along at a speed thac took all the desire to run out of her by the time the stretcli was reached. All the time that Little Chief was making it interesting for AVishbone Sande was saving Kai-Sang back of him under restraint. Then at the head of the stretch he came on with the brown colt and in a half dozen strides he was in the lead and under restraint won by a couple of lengths. AVhen both AVishbone and Little Chief collapsed in the stretch there was a general closing up and Bigheart and Sweep By drew out from the others in the final eighth. It was a close thing between the two of them for second place and Bigheart took that parr of the prize by a head. After the finish Sweep By was -worked out an additionad quarter and he finished out the distance in excellent style. This race should do Kai-Sang a great deal of good and he will now have to be seriously considered when among the best of the three-year-olds of the year. AVinner Take All, a brown two-year-old daughter of Fair Piay and Free Love that races for the Greentree Stable, was winner of the opening five and a half furlong dash for selling plater two-year-old filiies. To score she closed up with a rush through the stretch and catching Dicks Daughter was going away at the end. Third place fell to Suspicion. The third race was a mile for maidens, but they were good maidens and it brought about one of the best races of the meeting when Galantman, from the Greentree Stable, just lasted long enough to beat Rectortown home, while Irish Brigadier was a close third. CALAKTJIAIf ALT, THE AVAYi The start was a good one and Galantman led from start to finish, but he could never get far away from Irish Brigadier.. Thomas saved ground on all turns with Galantman, but before the stretch was reached he had to rouse his mount sharply with the whip to hold the lead. At that time Irish Brigadier was going so well alongside that it appeared he could go to the front at the asking. In the meantime Rectortown had joined them. McAtee was riding with great confidence, but when Galantman ran from the whip ho finally called on Rectortown and he finished with a mighty rush. Right at the end he tired ever so slightly and Galantman lasted to be winner by a head, while Irish Brigadier was less than a length farther away in third place. The others were beaten off. John Dundees AVar Mask, after several failures, made good when he met rather an ordinary band in the miie and seventy yards of the second race. Ho was an easy winner from Quesada, and Knight of the Heather finished third. J. J. OTooles Algoa was winner of the mile and a sixteenth of the fifth race by a rush through the stretch that lasted long enough to score from Lady Zeus, while Thornhedge ran third. Notice has reached the Yonkers track that the Appellate division had set aside the conviction of John Hickey in the lower court. Continued on twelfth page. KAI-SANG READY TO RACE Continued from first pace. Hickey was convicted on a charge of violating the anti-bookmaking law about a year ago. Morvieh has been freshened up since his defeat in the Latonia Special. He has taken on weight and trainer Burlew promises that he will be seen under colors at Saratoga. Jockey D. Prible, one of the leading ridsis at Havana last winter, was a visitor at Yonkers on his way from his home at Park-ersburg, "W. V., to Montreal, where he will join the stable of his contract employer, E. E. Major. Prible had a fall at Havre de Grace and his shoulder was dislocated. Later it was discovered that the shoulder socket was also slipped and he has not entirely recovered from that injury. On the way to Montreal he will spend a day with L. Penman at Saratoga. He and Penman, while the greatest of riding rivals, are the closest of chums. George Odom added blinkers to the equipment of Robert L. Gerrys Heirloom in the first race. Horsemen now at Yonkers are taking a lively interest in a vaudeville show for the benefit of St. Christophers Church, at Baldwin, L. I. It is to be held at the Freeport auditorium, Freeport, Tuesday night and already an imposing array of talent has volunteered for the occasion. N. L. and Jake Byer have decided not to race their horses at the Saratoga meeting. This stable embraces the horses of J. J. OToole, S. Lando and J. L. Price, as well as those that race under personal silks of the two trainers. Suspicion appeared decidedly sore in the parade to the post. While it could not be ascertained just what price J. S. Cosden paid John E. Madden for the two-year-old Dunlin that started under the silks of the Maryland sportsman in the sixth race, it. is known that Madden had valued tho colt at ?t0,0O0 earlier in the racing season. John G. Cavanagh has made announcement of liis Saratoga Special for the convenience of those who contemplate spending the month of August at the Spa. His train will leave the Grand Central terminal at 1 :30 p. m. Monday. The other stops are One Hundred and Twenty-fifth street at 1:10 and Yonkers at 2 o clock.
