DIAZ STRING READY FOR FALL RACING Busy Campaign Mapped Out for Racers of the Cuban Sportsman at Maryland Tracks. HAVRE DE GRACE, Md., September 4. The stable of A. II. Diaz of Havana, which scored its first stake victory at Saratoga on Wednesday, August 27, when the two-year-olil Grayssian defeated Kinnoul, Sammy, Round Robin, King Thrush, David Iiaruml Cinderella and Carmandalc, in the Adirondack Handicapwill arrive frpm Saratoga this week in the charge of William McDaniel. Mr. Mc-Daniel will bring with him to Maryland for the Havre de Grace, Laurel Park and Pimlico meetings Grayssian, Blue AVrack, Azurita, Just Fancy and Zululand, also the four-year-old Tracery colt Orestes. These horses are all in splendid condition, and Grayssian and Azurita, the last named a daughter of Hessian and Motley, are to be trained for the 0,000 Eastern Shore Stakes, Havre de Graces best two-year-old special. The Eastern Shore will be run on September 22, and iVinot improbable that it will attract Man o War, Upset, Constancy, she the Spinawaj winner at Saratoga; King Thrush, Kinnoul, Blazes, winner of the Grab Bag Handicap; Ralco and others. Azurita. is every bit as fast as is Grayssian in work, but she had bad luck in both her Saratoga starts. She was left at the post twice. Blue Wrack, a winner in Cuba and at Aqueduct, is hardly as capable a youngster as either Grayssian or Azurita. "i Orestes, whose half-brother is Donnacona, a son of Prince Palatine and Kildonan, will be pointed for the Harford County Handicap, a race with ,000 added, at a in lie and seventy yards, that will be run on September 11, and the 0,000 Havre de Grace Handicap, a, race of a mile aiid an eighth, that will be run on- September 27. Orestes was in splendid form at Saratoga on August 4, when he defeated Iliittoritrope in a race of one mile, which distance he covered in 1:37. He did not like the going on August 15. when Cudgel, Spur and Valor trimmed him. Orestes likes a fast track.
