WHISKAWAY AND BUNTIMG SARATOGA SPRINGS, N. Y., August 1. Whiskaway, which was shipped back to Brookdale Farm, where he trained through the spring, immediately after his dazzling success in the 0,000 Kentucky Special, was accompanied from Brookdale to Saratoga by the handsome Bunting, the winner of last falls renewal of the Belmont Park Futurity. Brilliantly as AVhiskaway showed in the Kentucky Special, a gallop of one mile and a quarter, which he won in 2:02 under the steadying burden of 12G pounds, James Rowe, the veteran trainer of the stable of Harry Payne Whitney, believes that he has a better 3-year-old long-distance runner than the son of Whisk Broom H. Inaugural in Bunting. Bunting is a son of Pennant, himself a Futurity winner, and a grandson of Peter Pan. He went to the post at Havre de Grace in April in condition to beat Lucky Hour in the ,000 Chesapeake Stakes and then fell a victim of influenza. This sickness prevented Buntings starting at Pimlico in the 0,000 Preakness Stakes, which Pillory won. Whiskaway was stricken with the coughing sickness about the time Bunting fell sick and at the time of the announcement of the Kentucky Special by Colonel Matt Winn Rowe thought that he would send Bunting, rather than Whiskaway, West to try his speed against Morvich. But Whiskaways recovery of form was more rapid than was Buntings and the chojee finally fell on him. Bunting has been showing great speed in his gallops here since he came up from Brookdale Farm. He and Whiskaway are preparing to meet Pillory and half a dozen other smart 3-year-olds in the Travers and Miller Stakes, the Saratoga. Associations most important specials for 3-year-olds.
