EPINARD ON PARADE SARATOGA SPRINGS, N. Y., Aug. 23. After the running of the fifth race the bugler called Epinard to the course and led by Redcoat Murray, on a big chestnut, the French champion, with Pierre Wertheimers Blue and White silks up and Everett Haynes in the saddle, paraded while the hand played the Marseillaise and men stood uncovered. The handsome invader was walked slowly up to the eighth post and was greeted with thunderous applause. The photographers took many "shots" at him and then Leigh had Haynes walk back to the three-sixteenths pest in order that those in the field might have a look at the colt. One was impressed by his apparent fitness even at a walk. He looked hard without being drawn and there is a healthy glow that bespeaks perfect physical condition. There was some disappointment that he was not shown at speed, but nevertheless as an added attraction Epinard proved a decided hit.
