SARATOGA TURF NOTES SARATOGA SPRINGS, N. Y., Aug. 26. A division of the Rancocas Stable left for Belmont Park. The Salubria Stable at private terms, sold the plater Tuxedo to J. Whyte. Louis Meripole arrived from Chicago and stated that Comic Song and Better Times were shipped to Jamaica. Word was received today that jockey C. Fairbrother was the father of a daughter, who was born this morning. During the absence of Arthur Van Etten, who is recuperating in the Adirondacks, Eddie Waugh is acting as entry clerk. Frank J. Bryan, who will be the ruling spirit of the Timonium meeting, to open Labor Day left for Baltimore tonight. Between races Sunsard and Sun Tess from the Willis Sharpe Kilmer stable were sent three furlongs in :36. Photographs of the new Miami course, taken from, an airship, were interesting exhibits in the club house and the secretarys office. Willis Sharp Kilmers Sunny Man was sent along for five furlongs in 1:05 after the running of the second race. He was accompanied by Sun Hathor and it was a part of his preparation for the Hopeful to be run Saturday. The work was done under restraint and was a nice move considering the track conditions. Wilson Williams, vice-president of the Business Mens Racing Association of New Orleans, was a visitor of the day. He said that for the next meeting at the Fair Grounds the admission would be reduced to two dollars for men and one dollar for women. Many improvements have been made at the old course and he expressed confidence in a big meeting. The start was a bit straggling and Mad-denstown was first to show out of the field with Zeebrugge after him and Hayward not far away. It was going to the stretch turn that Maddenstown began to tire and there Parke stole through with Hayward. At the end Zeebrugge was coming again and Senor closed with excellent courage after having a rough journey. Mrs. T. O. Webbers Hayward, a son of Vulcain White Silk, was winner of the opening five and a half furlong dash for selling plater juveniles. He was given a good ride by Ivan Parke and at the end was doing his best to lead home John Sanfords Zeebrugge, a colt that showed excellent mud running quality. Maddenstown was third and just saved that end of the purse from Paul Connellys Senor.
