FRIZETTE WINS THE TROY. UPSETS AN INTENDED COUP WITH MAGAZINE IN SARATOGA FEATURE. Bat Mastcrson a Real Good Thing for Schwartz Brothers Gallavant Easily Defeats Martin Doyle in Handicap. i " Saratoga, X. V., August li. Spectacularly and speculatively the racing today was disappointing to the public. The second race, in which Harney Schrcibcrs Killiecrankie, at odds of 25 to 1, defeated Jersey I.ady, the second choice, three parts of a length, was the only number In which there was a stirring contest at the finish. In the opening race. Hat .Mastcrson, hacked heavily hy Schwartz Hrothers, had won drawing away after a sharp stretch hrush witli the favorite Jack Atkin, hut in all others the winners got home easily and with wide margins. Gallavant, which showed his heels to .Martin Doyle and Cork Hill, his only two opponents in the handicap at one mile and a quarter, and Fort Johnson, which took the closing race for John San ford, were the only winners for the puldie. The feature of the card was the Troy .Selling Stakes for two-yea r-ohls at live and one-half furlongs, in which nine went to the post with Master Itohert as the favorite and It. F. Carmans Magazine I meked for thousands. James It. Keenes Fri-zette was opened as the favorite at 2 to 1, hut when the money came in for Magazine and Master Itohert, there were no takers of the odds about the daughter of Hamburg and she receded steadily until at post time her price was 4 to 1. The nice proved that the public in neglecting the lilly and the sharpshooters in hacking Magazine proceeded unwisely. Irizette took the lead at the start, raced .Magazine dizzy In the first live furlongs and won from him by two lengths. Magazine, however, put up a game struggle ami saved second place by a head from Black Mary. Master Itohert whs never a contender. The tabled history of the Troy Selling Stakes is as follows Year.

Angarola, tile new owner of Itoyal Bady, paid C. I. Sullivan for her. Mr. Sullivan bought her from John A. Drake last fall for ,100. The steeplechase course here is as hard as asphalt. That is why Sandalwood and Garrett were withdrawn yesterday. Master Tommy Wright of Baltimore will ride Sain Bernard in the race for gentlemen riders at one mile tomorrow. Young Mr. Jones, also of Baltimore, will have the mount on Dainty Maudic. By the way, George Hill is schooling Dainty Maudic for steeplcehasing and expects to have lier ready to start for the Maekay Cup at Belmont lark. Vails next stake engagement is in tlte Saranac Handicap, August 27 and she is eligible to the Champlaiu Handicap to be run two days later. These races are for three-year-olds exclusively and it is understood that Mr. Sanford intends to start his speedy and game lilly in both. George J. Bong, the breeder and owner of Arcite, is here and is pleased with the general appearance of bis colt. Arcite is going fast and it is not improbable that he will be a starter for the Saratoga Cup to he run a week from tomorrow. There is much talk here of the relative merits of Uncle and Spooner. Sam Hildreth says that he is satisfied that next to Colin, Uncle is the best two-year-old in America, and has declared his willingness to race the son of Star Shoot against Spooner or any other youngster, barring the Keenc champion, for anything up to 0,000 a side. There is, however, little chance for a match race. The Jockey Club is inclined to discourage matches and Andrew Miller, one of the owners" of Spooner, is one of the foremost members of the Jockey Club.
