I SARATOGA LIVE NEWS NOTES FROM WORLDS FAMOUS TRACK Patrons of the Saratoga track could not wish for a better card than that which is offered for their delectation tomorrow. Although Messenger is not named to start in the Grand Union Hotel Stakes, he is about the only notable two-year-old, with the exception of Anna M. Humphrey, to decline the fight. It was no secret that Messengers shins were sore when he ran in the Grab Bag Handicap and it is not the part of wisdom, in view of the colts engagements, to hurry him. As both Goshawk and Martingale have won enough to penalize them, their pathway for the remainder of the year will not be strewn with roses. The former is not as rugged as the Cosden colt, but his action is of the best and that always plays a part in weight carrying. Sallys Alley is making her first start since Aqueduct, while it will be the debut of Cyclops in select company. The Grand Union will give a line on Newmarket, for which Jefferson Livingston asked 0,000 during the Empire City meeting. The twin yearlings a chestnut filly and a bay colt by Theo Cook Momoweta, which failed to elicit a bid at the Xalapa Farm sale Thursday night, were disposed of privately by trainer Roy Waldron today. MacFinn, a local druggist, was the purchaser, and he paid 50 for the pair. Kai-Sang, the Rancocas Stable hope, showed a half in 49. This one has been thoroughly fitted in his races and his half mile was just a light gallop that was perfectly satisfactory to Hildreth. The race won by Blossom Time today marked the first time since 1920 that one of E. R. Bradleys horses scored here. The last cne to win was Busy Signal, which has since been retired to the stud. J. F. Flanigans Lytle went wrong so badly in his last race through the field that he has been sent to Monkton, Maryland, where he Is turned out on Frank Bonhals farm. As a final tightening up gallop for the mile and a quarter of the Travers Stakes, Whiskaway was sent along for an easy three-quarters in 1:15, first half in 47. The Frederick Johnson stable has dispensed with the services of jockey j". D. Mooney. He will ride as a free lance here for the remainder of the meeting. Bunting, working with Broomster, was sent the same distance in 1:12 and demonstrated his speed when the fractions were 22, 34, 46, 59, 1:12. Will Shields took blinkers off The Peruvian this afternoon, and his race suggests that he does not need any such equipment to do his best.
