RANCOCAS STABLE VICTORIES Takes Three of the Six Races Run at Saratoga Monday. Edict Easily First at the End of a Good Contest in The Schuyler-ville Stakes. SARATOGA SPRINGS. N. T.. August 7 This was Sam Hildreths day of glory.. In four races he sent representatives of the Ran-cocas Stable to the post. In the last race of the day the maiden Lucky Antoine failed the stable, but the second, third and fourth fell to Aladdin, Little Chief and Edict respectively, making it a highly satisfactory afternoon for the big establishment presided over by Hildreth. The track was heavy, but seemed to suit the action of the three winners admirably. Edict had no trouble worth notice about winning the Schuylerville Stakes from eleven hopefuls. She is a good filly and now has three consecutive victories to her credit. For a Rancocas Stable horse she was at an unbelievably good price in the betting, but that did not prevent her from racing into a clear lead soon after passing the far turn and drawing away in the stretch to win eased up. The outsider Miss Smith came through the j stretch so effectively as to land in second I place, with Great Luck taking third money. The latter made up much ground and evidently is a mud runner of high degree. Comixa was a receding favorite, but after leading briefly dropped back into racing obscurity. Aladdin had a hard time of it in defeating the westerner Banter in the second race, but rose to the requirement of the occasion valiantly and took the race by a head. John E. Maddens Best Love was a hot favorite here, but had to put up with third money. Little Chief showed a muddy pair of heels to Hephaistos and Rockminister, his only competitors, in the third race and led nearly all the way. He had a good pull in the weights and won under restraint, while Hephaistos defeated Rockminister for second money without any trouble. 3IISS CERINA EASY VICTRESS. Miss Cerina was winner of the opening dash. There was an additional thrill for Montfort Jones in that she is the first horse bred by him. The fully is a chestnut daughter of Sir John Johnson and Cerina and was 1 red at Mr. Jones historic old Virginia farm, Audley Park, that was once owned by George Washington. George Strate has come in from Kentucky with fifteen of the J. H. Rosseter yearlings that will be offered for sale by the Fasig-Tipton Company. These are all from Mr. Rosseters California ranch, but were brought on to Kentucky a couple of months ago. There are twelve colts and three fillies in the consignment and they are by Friar Rock and Disguise. Walter C. Edwards reported a satisfactory response from the horsemen for the stakes of the Metropolitan Jockey Club that will be decided at the Jamaica October meeting. He also announced that the fall stakes of the Queens County Jockey Club at Aquduct had billed exceedingly well. Stake blanks for the offerings at the Mac-land State Fair for the October racing at Laurel, were distributed among the horsemen here today. There will be twenty-three days of racing at Laurel, beginning October 3. The book will be a most liberal and attractive one. Already stabling is being booked with L. A. Cassidy and there promises to be an abundance of horses in training to furnish pleasing entertainment. T. P. Hayes was an arrival from the West, having come to attend the yearling sales. After Miss Cerina won the opening race Sam Louis bid her up from her entered price of ,700 to ,605 at which figure she was protected by trainer Kay Spence. When the bidding reached ,200 Spence raised it to ,500 himself. Jockey George Walls came up from Buffalo today, but returned there tonight.
