STANLEY FAY, A COLT OF QUALITY. Last AVednesdays race at Latonia was the only one of nineteen which Stanley Fay has run sirice leaving Oakland in which he finished outside of the money. Staney Fay is a bay colt by Canopus Mamie B., by St. Blaise, and made his first start at Oakland April 5 in the name of T. G. Ferguson. His second race was run at the same track five days later, in which he finished fifth In a field of eight. AVilllain AValker then bought the colt from Ferguson and started him April 27, only to see his colors finish in .fifth place where Stanley Fay had finished in both of his previous races. Walker sent him to the post again May 2, with Lycurgus in the saddle, and won with him from a field of twelve. AAalker then shipped his stable east, and Stanley Fays next race was run at Buffalo June 17, when he was placed to Minnie G. In liis live other starts at Buffalo lie won two, was second once and third three times, following with two wins and one second to Petulant at the Fork Erie meeting. Two victories out of four starts at the Yonkers meeting, defeating Hans, Skyo, Man-heimer, C. AV. Burt and other good ones, stamped him a colt of more than ordinary caliber. At tho close of the Empire City meeting AValker shipped him to Montreal, where he ran one race, finishing second to Banyan. Stanley Fay won all three of his starts at Toronto, the first an all-age handicap, defeating Cooney K., Merry England, Sally Preston, Polly Prim and Sir Edward, among others. In his race for the Michaelmas Handicap lie was an easy victor over Terali, Petulant, Banyah, Uncle Toby, Grande Dame and eleven of the best two-year-olds at the track. His third and last performance at Toronto was September 21, when he met and decisively beat Sir Edward, Purslane, Charlie Eastman and Charlie Gilbert, running the six furlongs in 1:12J. At Latonia last AVeduesday he ran a poor race, no doubt due to the drubbing he received at the heels of his opponents while at the post. His race Friday, in which he carried the. cuts and soreness which caused his probable defeat In his previous race, shows the heart and courage of the colt. AValker intends to enter him in both of the California Derbys. The table of Stanley Fays races and money Avon follows: Year. Sts. 1st. 2d. 3d. Unp. AAon. 1007 23 11 4 4 1,115
