UPSET BEATS MAN 0 WAR But the Star Colt Runs a Great Race Under His Big Impost Golden Broom Decisively Beaten Hannibal Shows He Is Ready Readyto to Meet Best of His Age BYJ L DEMPSEY DEMPSEYSARATOGA SARATOGA SPRINGS N Y August 13 Greater in defeat than he was before was the general ver ¬ dict of the great throng that witnessed Man o Wars terrific struggle to overcome the many ob ¬ stacles that beset him in his effort to add the Sanford Memorial to his list of victories Ulti ¬ mately he succumbed by a long neck to Harry Payne Whitneys Upset But without attempting to detract from the merits of his performance Man of War proved himself in the running unquestion ¬ ably the best It was Upsets advantage at tle start coupled with fifteen pounds weight conces ¬ sion a perfect ride he received from Knapp and his success in saving ground on the stretch turn that brought about his triumph over Man o War Had the race been a sixteenth farther the finish would have been reversed reversedGood Good colt though that he proved few outside of his immediate connections and their friends consid ¬ ered him capable of coping with Man o1 War and Golden Brcom The latter was the one that chief interest centered in as the most probable victor over the Glen Riddle colt Partisans of the pair began last night when it was definitely known that both colts would be starters to wage a battle of dollars to back up their opinions concerning the merits of the two stars starsMan Man o Wars adherents were forced at the fin ¬ ish to give odds The opinion of last night held good this afternoon for Man o War ruled an overwhelming choice with Golden Broom next in odds oddsJOCKEY JOCKEY JOFTITS CAUGHT NAPPING NAPPINGThe The suppprters of the latter were a jubilant lot when the start found Golden Broom with a big advantage Oils closest attendant being Upset A groan came from those who had pinned their faith in Man o War for Loft us had been caught napping and the colt as a result was away somewhat poorly Golden Broom through his early ad ¬ vantage kept well in front with Upset and Donna cona his closest followers but Man o War was making great efforts to get into contention and succeeded so well that in going to the first turn he seemed as if he might be able to wrest tho lend away but at this juncture when Man o Wars chances appeared best was brought about his un ¬ doing for instead of succeeding in slipping through next to the inner rail as Loftus had intended the leaders moved over effectively cutting off Man o War and forcing Loftus to come wide later on into the stretch Golden Broom was still in front on the stretch turn but ready to retire which he did soon after and Upset which had taken the lead appeared all over an easy winner but the stout ¬ hearted Man o War was not to be denied and he responded in resolute style to the punishing drive that Loftus was making and an eighth from the finish Knapp awoke to the peril and lost no time in beginning to work in earnest on the Whitney repre ¬ sentative In the last sixteenth the crowd was in a frenzy over the duel that the pair were staging Upset was leading but his margin was being stead ¬ ily reduced and seventy yards from the finish it still seemeilthat Man o War had a chance to down his flying rival But Upset held on in unusually game style and passed the winning line a long neck to the good Aolden Broom though tiring fast near the end lasted long enough to retain third place from Capt Alcoek an added starter from the John E Madden establishment which ran a good race to land fourth after his poor sendoff sendoffCHEERS CHEERS GREET VICTOR AND 10SER 10SERVictor Victor and vanquished were given a rousing re ¬ ception on their return to the scales The stakes had a guaranteed value of 000 of

the race in 1914 The condi ¬ tions pertaining to the trophy are that an owner must win it three times before it becomes his ex ¬ clusive property One more victory in the stake for Harry Payne Whitney gives him clear title to the muchcoveted and antique cup cupTodays Todays card of seven races and an anticipation that the twoyearold supremacy question would be determined in the Sauford Memorial Stakes were magnets to attract an extra large assemblage to the track this afternoon despite threatening weather The racing offering was a good one and in several instances brought out some highly
