Y July 26. Fast gallops were again out of the question -on both the main and Oklahoma training tracks early this morning. The former had c dried out, but it was lumpy, while the other fl was deep in sand. More horses were out for gallops than upon any previous day this year and it was well along toward the noon hour c before the tracks were clear. f, Many additions were made to the thor- c oughbred colony today, four carloads coming t in on the early morning train, while several are reported en route. William Brcnnan brought twenty horses of the Rancocas Stable, and the remainder will be sent up by Samuel C. Hildreth at the conclusion of the Empire City meeting. Frank M. Taylor came in with eight of the John E. Madden racers. The other divi- slon of this establishment, in charge of a trainer "Chuck" Walker, has been here for some time. 1 Fourteen horses belonging to R. L. Gerry comprised the consignment in charge of trainer George Odom. Trainer J. Hastings had ten in his care. Track superintendent AVilliam Clare put a large force of men to work cleaning up the entire grounds of both tracks and they never -presented a prettier appearance. Fortu- natcly all of the painting was completed be- j fore the recent rains came. The only draw-back to the meeting is a scarcity of stable room, but barns outside are being pressed into service and they will care for the over- flow. 1 J. P. Smith wircl that he is shipping seven horses here from Windsor, Ont, and they , will finish the year out on the eastern circuit i Trainer John I. Smith sent Travesty, Au- tocrat and Lucky Run to the H. H. Hewitt i farm, just outside of Lexington, Ky., to be 1 rested up until autumn racing is resumed in 1 the Blue Grass state. James Rowe, Jr., who was stricken with acute indigestion soon after his arrival here, . has completely recovered and is back on the job with his father now. AVilliam Walker, who won the Kentucky Derby on Baden Baden in 1S77, was an ar- j rival from His home in Louisville, Ky. He , has missed few Saratoga meetings. Last Man, a jumper in the Frederick Johnson stable, which has been on the shelf for some time, has been put back in train- J ing, but it is doubtful if trainer William Mc- Knight will be able to get him to the races , here. i Violinist, in the II. C. Fisher stable, is i training soundly again after a let-up for several weeks. He went amiss, but his ail- , ment was not of a serious nature and it readily responded to the rest treatment. , G. H. Knebelkamp and Frank Moore departed for New York today to witness the Leonard-Tendlcr fight and take in the remainder of the Empire City meeting. ! Quite a crowd is planning to go from here to Yonkers on Saturday for the final day of the summer racing season there.
