SPECIAL TO BE RUN TUESDAY Rainfall Causes Postponement of Event Scheduled for Saturday. SARATOGA SPRINGS, N. Y., August 26. The last hope for the running of the Saratoga Special three-year-old race today vanished when another rainfall came last night It has been announced that it will be run on Tuesday, should the track conditions permit. H. P. Whitneys Bunting, Richard T. Wilsons Pillory and the Rancocas Stables Kai-Sang are the only ones that will go to the post, should the race be run on that day. It was originally intended that there would be four starters, but C. W. Clarks Whisk-away will not be brought to the posL When he was started in the Huron Handicap by trainer Barnes it was announced that no matter where he finished in that race he would go to the post in the Special arranged, but the Huron Handicap was .held, to have demonstrated that the son of Whisk Broom II. and Inaugural was far from being in his best condition and it has been decided not to race him against such colts as Bunting, Kai-Sang and Pillory. It is unfortunate that Whiskaway is not ready for such a. meeting, for his brilliant racing before hte. defeat, in the Huron Handicap gave him every right to start. With him out the race will lose much of its importance, for the winner will still have to meet and beat Whiskaway before his title to the eartern three-year-old crown will be conceded. The yearlings that Gwyn Tompkins has purchased for Samuel D. Riddle have been shipped to the Riddle farm at Berlin, Md. It has been decided that the horses in training will remain at Saratoga for a week after the close of the present meeting, when they .will be shipped to Havre de Grace for a fall campaign in Maryland. Jocky L. Morris is suffering from a badly bruised eye, the result of an injury he received by a flying clod of mud while he was riding Scribble in the last race Friday. James Fitzsimmons has sold the contract on jockey P. Walls to J. K. L. Ross.
