KAI-SAHG BACK IN FORM NEW YORK, N. Y., July 14. Among the three-year-olds whose appearance is eagerly awaited is Kai-Sang of the Rancocas Stable. This good son of The Finn and Kiluna has been going along exceedingly well for Sam Hildrelh of late and his gallops suggest that he is about ready to race. He is liberally engaged at the Yonkers meeting, where he was named for practically all of the handicaps. His engagements that are strictly for three-year-olds are in the Empire City Derby, to be run Saturday, and the Knickerbocker Handicap, to be decided July 2G. Kai-Sang was generally considered the most formidable rival of Morvich last year, and he was a good second to the TSenjamin Block colt in the United States Hotel Stakes, the Saratoga Special and the Hopeful. In the Hopeful Kai-Sang carried 130 pounds and he took the measure of Whiskaway with only 115 pounds in the saddle. Kai-Sang incurred his penalties early when he was winner of the Colorado Stakes and in most of his races he was required to givj away great lumps of weight. He did it with a fair measure of success and was winner of the Grand Union Hotel Stakes under 127 pounds. It was at the Yonkers meeting last July that he was winner of the East View Stakes after Runstar, which had beaten him by a head, was disqualified for a stretch foul when Metcalf, who rode Runstar, struck Sande with his whip in the heat of the stretch duel. The training of Kai-Sang would suggest that he ought to be ready for the ISmpire City Derby, to be run Saturday, and if he comes back to anything like his two-year-old form that mile and a quarter test should be well within his capabilities.
