ELLICOTT RUNS A MILE IN 1:38 3-5. I Sets New Track Record at Buffalo Fleming Wins Leather-Stocking Stakes. Buffalo. N. Y., July 10. The Leather-Stocking Stakes was the lixture oil the card at Kciilhvorth today, but it was overshadowed in point of interest . by the handicap in which .1. II. Madigans good i three-year-old, Ellicott, conceded weight to his live opponents, beat Polly Prim a head and clipped two-fifths of a second off the previous track i record for one mile, by running the distance in 1:3S. Elllcotts performance was truly a remarkable one. Nicol rode a confident race. In the early running he permitted Polly Prim to dasli to the front and set the pace, and delayed his move until well around the far turn. When called on Ellicott steadily reduced the gap which separated him from the pacemaker and finished with the courage of a lion. Ellicott is undoubtedly the best horse in training here. He c:jii sprint and go a long distance and should give a good account of himself on the New York tracks If not too ambitiously placed. His next engagement here is in the Canadian Derby, which will be run at Fort. Erie Monday next. Outsiders scored in three of the races, Nellie Racine, Tyrolian and Emma !. all being at long prices in the betting. Nellie Kaciue was purchased out of a paddock sale by W. Walker a few days ago for 30, and she paid for herself ten times over by her victory this afternoon, as her owner had a small commission down at odds of 10 and 30 to 1. The Leather-Slocking Stakes proved little more than a good gallop for Fleming, which won off by himself after making most of tlie pace. In the early running Alencon showed a Hash of speed, but on the turn out of the backstretch Fleming came again and passed Alencon without great effort, and for the remainder of the trip Lcc had him well in hand.

Lees other winning mount was on Gabrielle in the li flit race. His alertness at the post was in a measure responsible for Gabrielles victory.
