WH! WORK-OUT SARATOGA SPRINGS, N. T., August 1G. After the third race James Rowe sent out H. P. Whitneys Bunting and Broomster in a trial for the Travers Stakes. Bunting, as in other ., trials, showed the better speed and his fractions were 25, 50, 1:15. 1:41, 1:54, 2:0S. Broomster held the Futurity winner through the early part of the work, but reached the mile in 1:41 and finished out the mile and a quarter in 2:09. In direct contrast to his regular habits, as far as working is concerned, Whiskaway, which C. W. Clark recently purchased from Harry Payne Whitney, ran -one and a quarter miles in 2:07 this morning. It was the best trial that the three-year-old ever turned in and gave evidence of his fitness. He finished with a great burst of speed, running the final eighth of a mile in thirteen seconds. United Verde was selected as a pacemaker for Whiskaway, but he was not equal to the task and the former Whitney colt soon drew away from him. He was timed the first three-quarters in 1:14, the mile in 1:39 and the mile and an eighth in 1:54. When pulled up he was not taking a long breath and cooled out in fine style. Trainer George V. Barnes announced, following Whiskaways work-out, that the colt win be a starter in the Travers Stakes Saturday.
