LIVE SARATOGA G0SSSP Max Hirsch has taken over the horses of James B. Smith, formerly trained by 1L T. Griffin and has decided to dispose of those that have been racing under his own silks. There will be a sale of these, conducted by the Fasig-Tipton Company, in the paddock Saturday. This band includes the good two-year-old Bo McMillan, as well as Flying Cloud, New Hampshire, Long Island, Gladiator and Longboat. With three races at distances of less than a mile the program offered was not exactly an attractive one. The only way such a program is possible at this time of the year is to have either two-year-old races or stake races at a lesser distance than a mile, for it is against the rules to have more than one overnight race at a lesser distance than a mile for horses three years old and over in August. Each day there are yearling consignments reaching Saratoga for the sales of the Fasig-Tipton Company that will begin Friday night. Some of those on the way to the market at this time are those of Sanford Lyne, L. Combs, F. Reagan, W. G. Shropshire, A. A. Reilly, Stone and Rucker, R. H. Anderson, W. P. Patterson, Samuel Ross, Capt. P. "M. Walker, Ed Cebrian, C. W. Scott and several others. In the nineteen runnings of the Sentca Stakes the colors of Richard T. Wilson have been home in front five times. The winners from the stable of the president of the Saratoga Association have been May River, Mex-oana, Pomette Bleu, Straight Forward and Tellow Hand. In two of these races Mr. Wilson was racing under the name of the Montpelier Stable. It was at Saratoga that Parader won another close decision when he scored over Devastation in a two-horse race. It was after that race, which he ran for the late S. A. Clopton, that he was purchased by Mr. Pendergast, his present owner. Mr. Pender-1 gast was not on hand yesterday for the running. He is on his way to Saratoga from Kansas City. J. O. Keene. well known xCcntucky breeder and formerly a member of the Kentucky State Racing Commission, was an arrival from his home in Lexington. He came on to attend the yearling sales. The Keene horses are resting in Kentucky during the summer months.
