SIMMS YEARLINGS SOUGHT Xalapa Farm Youngsters Please Buyers and Bring- the Best Saratoga Average to Date. SARATOGA SPRINGS, X. Y., August 18. Edward F. Simms Xalapa Farm yearlings produced a banner sale at the Fasig-Tipton mart last night, when twenty of them yielded a total of 5,200, an average of ,760 each. With a few exceptions, there was a brisk demand for everything offered by Simms and prices ran higher than usual in several instances. One of these exceptions was a set of twins, a chestnut filly and a bay colt by Theo. Cook Momoweta, which failed to elicit a single bid. They were undersized and did not appeal to the buyers. The Simms average was the highest of the meeting to date. The first" of the progeny of Broomstick to be led into the sales ring this year maae its appearance last night, a bay colt, dam Even Break. He went to Montfort Jones for 1,-500. The first bid offered was ,000 with B. B. Jones as the bidder, then R. A. Smith, R. L. Gerry and Scott Harlan, of the Green-tree Stable, started after him. Jones outstayed them all, however. This colt was of splendid appearance and there was little wonder that he attracted so much attention. A bay colt by Fair Play Crystal Maid was acquired by trainer Samuel C. Hildreth, acting for the Rancocas Stable, for ,900. The bidding on this one was between Hildreth and Harlan throughout. Hildreth was active throughout the night and at the end of the sales his establishment was increased by five yearlings at a cost of 0,100. gVfter several disappointments, the Green-trie Stable finally obtained one of the reputed top-notchrs a brown filly by Ultimus Thirty-Third for ,000. This miss appealed to a number of those at the ringside. Max Hirsch and R. L. Gerry were also hot after her. The attendance last night was generous and all of the large buyers were on hand, as the Simms collection was made up of horses from the leading sires of this country and they in turn should prove useful in the stud. Marshall Field, who is interested with R. L. Gerry in the ownership of a stable racing on the Metropolitan circuit and was recently elected a member of tllu Jockey Club, was at the ringside iast night and evinced a keen interest in the sales. He was especially anxious that Mr. Gerry obtain the Broomstick colt, but the latter stopped bidding a trille too soon. Two horses belonging to Addison Johnson were added to last nights sales. Both were sons of Pebbles and they went for 00. This brought the total of the sales up to 5,900, an average of ,450. The sales follow: Property of E. F. Simms.
