FINE NEW RACE FOR FILLIES Alabama Stakes Contestants to Be Given Another Chance in Near Future. SARATOGA SPRINGS, N. Y., August 14. Since the running of the Alabama Stakes, for three-year-old fillies, there has been much discussion as to whether Nedna, the winner of that race, was the best horse in it. With a desire to bring the field which took part in that race together again the Saratoga management has offered a purse of ,500 for Wednesday, August 30, over the same distance, one mile and a quarter. The race will have a subscription fee of 00 each, with a forfeit of 0 each and the Saratoga Association will add a silver plate of the value of 00. The entries will close the day previous to the running of the race. With this race, which should attract all of the starters in the Alabama, and the running of the Saratoga Cup and the Hopeful Stakes on the closing day of the meeting the final day of the meeting should be full of interest. In the filly race all will carry 115 pounds and Startle, Prudish, Nedna, Emotion, Many Smiles, Irish Confetti, Prelude and Lady Baltimore should be among the nominations. MANY SMILES ItETUJINING TO POMI Many Smiles is returning to the form she showed early in the current racing season. This is one of the best-looking mares in training and has as much speed as anybodys horse. She was a trifle lame at Belmont Parle, but from the way she is going now this trouble has been dissipated. Many Smiles was bred in Wyoming at the ranch of her owner, William R. Coe. Her size and speed is proof that thoroughbreds can be bred in that state. She will in all probability be a starter in the mile and a quarter re-; newal of the Alabama.
