Mcdowell may sell more yearlings Horses Arriving from the East Livingston Racers Now Quartered at Lexington. Lexington, Ky., August 27. When T. C. Mc-DowelP was about to offer the thirteen yearlings he sold at Saratoga August 7 for an average of ,242 per head, a gentleman at the ringside in the paddock at Saratoga said to him: "Well, Tom, I presume you brought your best and left the weeds at home." "No," replied the major, "it is just the other way about; I brought the weeds and left what I considered the best at home." This morning trainer Tom Welch, who is in the employ of Joseph E. Widener, appeared at the McDowell stable at the Kentucky Association track and saw the half-dozen yearlings Sam Chenault is training. They were led out one after the other, critically inspected, then they were all galloped and trainer Welch remained until after they were cooled out and put away. He didnt say anything about his impressions and left this afternoon for Saratoga. The yearlings he saw are the colts by The Manager, dams Illinu, Kings Daughter, Ancient and Star Cat, the filly by The Manager True Blue and the filly by Helmet Dream Girl. They are all runners and the colts, dams Ancient. Star Cat and Ilium are especially fast. The Kings Daughter colt is a brother to John E. Maddens Golden King, and the chances are that before the season is over, he will be in strong request. J. C. Milam returned to Lexington this morning from Saratoga. His horses will arrive tomorrow. The Grader, Butcher Boy and Belle Mere, belonging -to Boss and Looney, will come with them. Another carload of Jefferson Livingstons horses arrived during the day.
