KING SAXON INJURED « ■ — $ NEW YORK, N. Y., June 24.— King Saxon, C. H. "Pat" Knebelkamps sterling miler, came out of the running of the Brooklyn Handicap Saturday with a badly bruised near side as a result of hitting the fence in the run through the stretch. It happened as Discovery passed him, and Rainey accused the Vanderbilt colt of putting his mount on the rail and it was the reason for his claim of foul. Knebelkamp expressed a fear yesterday that the son of Saxon had broken two ribs by his collision with the rail, but a veterinary diagnosis that he had ruptured some muscles and the hurts might keep him out of training for some time. King Saxon was an intended starter in the Butler Handicap, to be run at the Empire City Association course July 13, but his owner and trainer said he did not expect to have him back in racing before the end of July at the earliest.
