SARATOGA SALES MAKE A RECORD DISPOSAL OF PHIL T. CHINA S FORTY-THREE YEARLINGS FOR 14,300 TOTAL SETS NEW MARK-- TERRIFIC WIND AND RAINSTORM OF SIX HOURS DURATION FAILS TO HALT PURCHASES SARATOGA SPRINGS, N. Y., August 19. All records for thoroughbred auction sales in America were broken last night when forty-three yearlings from Phil T. Chinns Himyar Stud were disposed of for a total oi 5214,bU0, an average ci ,yS3.7H. ihis was the highest average in the history of the Fasig-Tipton sales here for a single consignment, but it was not out of line in the least, as the Himyar youngsters were the superior in looks and conformation of anything ever offered in the local mart. The Chinn sale was all the more remarkable in view of the fact that a terrific wind and rainstorm broke over this section shortly after 7 oclock last night and the downpour continued with little abatement for six hours. This did not deter the seekers of yearlings and they turned out in as large number as ever. The sales paddock was crowded a bit more than usual because of the fact that the seats which were not under roof had to be I : abandoned, and it was a bidding gathering at that. j Harry F. Sinclair, owner of the Rancocas Stable, played the most prominent part in tha nights proceedings. Several times he outlasted his rivab in bidding for the high-priced offerings j 1 and, once he began, he seemed set in his ways to get what he was after. Ha demonstrated this when he obtained a chestnut colt by Fair Play Loch Linnhe for 7,000, the top price of last nights sale. Edward F. Simms, H. C. Fisher, Montfort Jone3 and Corncius Fellowes were active after this one, but Mr. Sinclair survived them all. The first bid tendered on this celt was S5.000. A chestnut filly by Peter Pan Lucrative followed the Fair Play colt into the ring and Sinclair also acquired her at a price of S12,500. This set a new mark for a yearling filly at the Saratoga sales. A bidding duel of oil men resulted here, a two-cornered affair between Mr. Sinclair and B. B. Jones, the latter acting for his brother Montfort. They dingdonged it ,000 at a clip until finally Jones retired. Incidentally, this was one of the handsomest fillies ever shown here. j Undaunted by his failure to obtain either the Fair Play celt or the Peter Pan filly, Jones got into the thick of the bidding on numerous others and finally wound up with increasing his stable by four yearlings at a cost of 3,S00. Three of them stand him ,000 each, or slightly in excess of that figure. j j C. J. Fitzgerald, acting for the Oak Ridge Stable, purchased the second highest-priced ; ! yearling of the sale, a brown colt by Peter Pan Passan. His only opponent in a bidding way I j i here was V. Vivadou of the Riviera Stable, but the latter made it interesting part cf the way. i j He finally dropped out of it, however, when the 5,000 mark was reached. The Oak Ridge establishment paid 0,100 for a bay colt by Sweep Hanrosc, a brother of Pen Rose, and again the bidding on this one was a two-cornered affair between Fitzgerald and B. B. Jones. The extra 00 saved the day for the Oak Ridge Stable. The other purchase of this outfit was a bay or brown colt by McGee Stolen Moments and he cost ,200. Other buyers at large prices at last nights sale were H. C. Fisher, L. Waterbury, J. C. Milam, Samuel H. Harris, Riviera Stable and Samuel D. Riddle. j Thus far eleven yearling sales have been conducted by the Fasig-Tipton Company this j meeting and the total realized is ,003,750, exclusive of the horses disposed of privately after I being catalogued for the auction. This is a remarkable total and surpassed the expectations of ! the most optimistic. It reveals that there is no shortage of money in this section, as was the j general contention before the meeting began and also that the wealthy patrons of the thoroughbred sport stand ready to pay good prices for future racing material, provided it appeals to them or their trainers.
