OTHER GOOD ONES IN ROSS STABLE Trainer Bcdweli Declares He Has a Half Dozen For ¬ eignBred Youngsters That Can Beat Canso By Ed Cole ColeSaratoga Saratoga N Y August C The victory of Com ¬ mander J K L Koss imported filly Canso on Friday marked the first success for any of his im ¬ ported stock This daughter of Lemberg Wife of Bath ran such an impressive race that friends of the commodore flocked around him offering congratulations as the filly cantered a mile in 138 if with Hi pounds in the saddle saddleTrainer Trainer Guy Bedwell was more than pleased with the result of the race and in conversation said he had seven imported horses in the barn and that Canso was not nearly as promising as some of the others othersI I dont know but what all the others I have in the imported section of the stable can beat her said lie That is saying a whole lot but I really believe the majority of them will show an even better j erformance erformanceIf If Bedwells expectations are gratified he will certainly have the best string of horses in this country countryWhether Whether the record of 110 for threequarters made by Poymulian will stand for the meeting is doubted by some horsemen and experts but the majority have an idea that it will and if the time is lowered it will be reduced by the same horse Others argue that if Koamcr was sent after the threequarters record he could beat it while a few have a notion that Sun Briar may turn the tables on Polyinelian the next time they meet meetThere There is no denying the fact that Mr Kilmers threeyearold ran what could be termed a remark ¬ able race against Polymcliau He did not begin any too quickly and met with obstructions during the running At the close of the race he was gaining steadily on Polymeliau and the general opinion was he would have beaten him had the race been a half furlong further furtherOnly Only those in close touch with the Kilmer stable believed Sun Briar would run so encouragingly The fact that the Sundridge colt has repeatedly disap ¬ pointed his trainer in preparation lias confirmed the general rumor that his ringbones Avould affect his running over a fast track Whatever liis ailments they did not seem to delay him in any way in his recent race and the conclusion is now being drawn that his ringbones are becoming calloused with age and will not trouble him in short races though they may affect him when asked to go longer routes routesWILL WILL NOT BE BOTHERED BOTHEREDThe The opinion of one of the best trainers in this section is that Sun Briar will not be bothered with this ailment They interfere with a horse when they are de ¬ veloping said he but after they are hard and permanent they are more unsightly than injurious injuriousShould Should tills prove to be the case with Sun Briar it can be predicted that he is uqw coming into his own again and will henceforth be a decided factor in races not only in sprints but in events over a long distance of ground groundBodily Bodily Sun Briar never looked better than he did while parading to the post in his recent race and judging from his performance he will have to be reckoned with when he meets War Cloud Jack Hare Jr Tippity Witchet and others in the threeyearold division divisionMr Mr Kilmer has two strings of horses at tho pres ¬ ent time seven of his band having been transferred to Simon Hcaly The Kilmer establishment is so extensive that it was a big position for one man to fill and Henry McDaniel was no doubt pleased to get some of the driftwood off his hands For the first two days of the meeting here it was a case of dog cat dog among the speculators Public business was scarce hence1 it became a battle of wits between the backer and the layer On Sat ¬ urday the village filled n somejvhat and there were signs of new life everywhere
