END OF PLAYFELLOW CASE Brother of Man o War Returned to Quincy Stable and Purchase Price Is Refunded. The end of the famous Palyfellow case came with the turning Dack to the Quincy Stable of the brother of Man o War and the refunding of the 00,000 to the Rancocas Stable, the sum paid for the colt, which later turned out to be a "cribber and windsucker." Playfellow was purchased last summer by Harry F. Sinc.air, owner of the Rancocas Stable, from James Johnson, owner of the Quincy Stable. After trainer S. C. Hildreth discovered that the colt was a "cribber and windsucker" suit was brought to recover the purchase price. The first trial resulted in a disagreement of the jury, while the second trial resulted in a victory ior the plaintiff, which was unsuccessfully appealed by Mr. Johnson. Playfellow is now with the Quincy Stable at Saratoga and may be seen under colors there during the meeting which begins today.
