HUGE PRICES FOR YOUNG HORSES THIRTYEIGHT YEARLINGS AT SARATOGA ARE SOLD FOR f 165850 TWO COLTS FETCH f 4 95 00 AND A FILLY 9300 AVERAGE AVERAGEPRICE PRICE FOR THIRTYEIGHT f436450 SARATOGA SPRINGS N Y August 7 One of the most remarkable yearling sales ever conducted in this country was held Wednesday night by the FasigTipton Company at their sales mart here when a consignment of thirtyeight yearlings brought the magnificent sum of 165850 for a grand average of 436450 436450Enthusiastic Enthusiastic bidding was the order whenever a particularly choice offering was in the ung and at times the tilts between the millionaire bidders waxed furious and fast Perhaps at no former similar function has a more fashionable or representative gathering been present and it is certainly a good augury for the turfs future that the numerous noted persons in the assemblage were not there out of idle curiosity They were in quest of racing material and bid promptly and continued to do so up to the margin that they considered each young ¬ ster was worth worthThe The proceedings of the evening was first enlivened when the youngster by Sunstar Marion Hood in the Short Grass Stud Farm consignment was offered His appearance in the ring caused all eyes to be focused in his direction Excepting for his lineage there was nothing particularly striking about the colt and many in the vast throng regarded him as nothing above the ordinary The bidding on him was somewhat listless at the beginning but livened steadily until the 20000 mark was reached when it became a duel between J K L Ross for whom Captain P M Walker was bidding and R L Gerry Commander Ross finally secured the colt on his bid of 25000 the highest price for a youngster since the sale of the counterfeit Bolero R ry ryarJnMirafWfUa arJnMirafWfUa HoocPloSfr out of the honors for the evening was the J O KeeneC B Head consigned Ulti axus Tsarina colt He was raised by degrees to 24000 to 24500 at which figure he was bought by W Vincent Thraves of Lexington The contending bidder on this colt was P T Chinn presumably acting for Lawrence Waterbury who recently bought Sennings Park for 25000 Mr Thraves was set to secure the colt and had Phil Chinn kept on bidding there is 110 telling how much more the youngster would have brought In appearance he was far more striking than the Sunstar colt coltKenneth Kenneth D Alexanders Ballot Starry Night colt was another choice offering much desired and Commander J K L Ross again outbid the others and secured him for 15000 The Short Grass Ellangowan colt was another one that Commander Ross succeeded ia obtaining when he bid 11000 for him The four colts that Mr Ross bought cost him 53800 53800The The twelve head consigned by Thomas C McDowell went for a total of 24500 or an average of 210833 The star of this consignment was the colt by The Manager Lucy Locket which S D Riddle secured on his bid of 5000 The filly by Uncle Kings Daughter expected to bring a big price seemingly was not fancied for the bidding on her was slow and she was in eminent danger of being knocked down for 1100 when Mr McDowell an ¬ nounced that he did not want to do any bidding himself on any of his horses but he stood ready to give 2500 for her to any one who secured her in the sale for less The announcement immediately prompted a bid of 2400 on her by Howard Oots who when he got her trans ¬ ferred her at once to Mr McDowell and received a hundreddollar bill billThe The four Ultimus fillies consigned by Miss Elizabeth Daingerfield were of prepossessing appearance and instantly elicited spirited bidding when they were brought into the ring The quartet were sold for a total of 26600 an average of 6650 The filly by Ultimus Torpen how the star was sold to W C Karrick on his bid of 9300 This marked a record price in his country for a yearling filly and Miss Daingerfield was warmly congratulated over her remarkable sale saleThe The C H Berryman consignment of four
