fePLECHASING IN AUGUST iUntries for the Saratoga Handicap Give Every Promise of Great Mid-Summer Sport. NEW YORK, N. T., June 25 All of the Steeplechases that have been run at Belmont Park and Aqueduct hold out great promise for the August sport at Saratoga. The bringing over of the foreign jumpers, under the subscription plan, has been a tremendously big thing for the cross-country sport and its adequate revival this year means much to the turf. Steeplechasing is always an appealing spectacle and it has attracted many of the best sportsmen to the turf. Just so long as it is kept above reproach it will have its proper importance in the racing scheme. At Saratoga the most valuable of the Steeplechase offerings is the Saratoga Steeplechase, a handicap over the two and a half mile course. It has an added money value of ,000 and was closed May 5 with fifty-eight nominations.
