1 SARATOGA LIVE NEWS NOTES FROM WORLDS FAMOUS TRACK Before returning to his home in California J. W. Marchbank, who was a considerable, buyer in the thoroughbred market, will make his first visit to Belmont Park for a fw days racing. He will later visit Edward R. Bradleys Idle Hour Farm in Kentucky. Cal and James Mitchell will go. to California next fall to take part in the racing in the far West. The Virginians were loyal at the Oxnard sale and many of the mares and the stallions, with the exception of War Star, will return to the Old Dominion. They were true to their colors at the track too and, when Prince James won the mile handicap, there were a few rebel yells. This black son of King James is a much better horse than hs has been credited with being, and the many friends of Charles Theriot were glad to see him win. Mr. Theriot was a buyer at the yearling sale of the produce of the Blue Ridge stud a few nights ago. His horses are in the stable of Jack Goldsborough. Most of the Kentucky horses have already been shipped back to that state and not a few are booked for Havre de Grace, but the majority of those left here will go to Belmont Park. Just now there is a shortage of cars and it has been set forth that it took 144 cars and three weeks to bring the horses here, while they all want to move back in three days. Already sixty-five carloads have been shipped and five more left today, with a promise of seventeen more to follow. All the Kilmer folks are here from Bing-hamton and a moving picture of the Cup race will be taken for exploitation in the home town, where Exterminator is a regular hero. His homecoming each year is a regu lar event. Mr. Kilmer and Mr. Sinclair had a little chat yesterday afternoon between the race, the gist of which was "May the best horse win." Harrison Nesbit, who has made some important purchases at the Oxnard sale, is. a business man of Pittsburg, and has a farm at Warrenton, Va., where he has established a breeding stud. With the other Virginia buyers that state promises to have a new importance in the production of thoroughbred horses. After the completion of the Blue Ridge Stud sale last night there was a sale of horses in training and Good Times went to J. A. McDonald for 00; Draft to General Buchanan for ,300; War Burton to E. D. Springer for 00, and Cisqua to B. A. Lane for 00. Jockey Frank Keogh will ride free lance at Belmont Park, but will have to report to the Salubria Stable at Havre de Grace for that meeting. P. C. Proctor and Albert Mori came on from New York for the last two days of the meeting. Both Lucidus and Homestretch were tried without blinkers in the first race.
