I SARATOGA LIVE NEWS NOTES FROM WORLDS FAMOUS TRACK Trainer Barnes will probably send C. W. Clarks recent purchase, Whiskaway, to the post for the first time in the Tra vers Sat- j urday. He said the colt looked exceedingly well, but that he was not a work horse and that he knew little of his fitness. James Rowe told him all there was to tell about the habits arid temper of the son of Whisk Broom II. Inaugural, and among other things informed him that he was never a work horse, so that he need not be discouraged if he failed to show becoming speed in the morning. It has been decided to revive the Meadow-brook Steeplechase Association and there will be a renewal of the Meadowbrook Cup, run over a course at Westbury on November 11. ! i Some years ago the Meadowbrook Steeple- j ! chase Association occupied a prominent place j : among the amateur racing clubs, and its re- j vival is of vast importance to the Hunting ! ! Club set, while it should create a new j interest in steeplechasing where horses are raced through the field. Resting Time, a two-year-old black filly by Black Toney Breathing Spell, in the Mont-fort Jones stable, displayed a phenonenal flight of speed in a work-out between races this afternoon when she ran three-eighths of a mile in 34. She covered the first eighth in HVs and the quarter in 22. This filly has only one stake engagement here, the Hopeful Stakes, which will be run on the last day of the meeting. She is a half sister to Busy American. Jerry Carroll has two promising young jumpers he is developing in Draft and Good Time. The latter is a brother to Hourless, and has never beein to the races. He has taken kindly to jumping and, while Carroll does not expect to have him ready for a Saratoga race, he will probably be raced in the fall at Belmont Park or Aqueduct. Edward Arlington was a visitor from New York for a few days of racing. He expressed himself as well pleased with his yearling purchases, but his hotel enterprises keep him so occupied that he cannot devote much time to racing. John Sanford entertained at a delightful buffet luncheon in the Fasig-Tipton Sales paddock before the races. The occasion was a showing of the yearlings that were offered at auction later at night. Boxwood, a carded starter in the fifth race, was ordered withdrawn by the stewards when his trainer, J. H. Tevis, failed to show up with him in the paddock at the appointed time. The run-up of Edict by Sam Louis in the Troy Stakes, as well as the claiming of Bridesman and Shamrock, will make the overnight purses tomorrow ,087.80 each. Jesse Spencer, Lexington, Ky., breeder, whose horses are resting at Windsor, Ont, came in for the yearling sales. He will return to the Canadian city tomorrow. Both Sedge and Our Boots have been put to jumping and promise to be valuable additions to the cross-country string of the Greentree Stable. Between races Fred Burlevv worked Irish Brigadier three-quarters of a mile in 1:13, after he had covered the first half in 47. Thessaly, winner of the third race, was claimed by J. S. Cosden for ,500. Edward Alvey of Louisville, Ky., joined the Blue Grass delegation todav. and
