SARATOGA ASSOCIATION Liberal Response Being Received to Stake Offering for August Meeting of Next Year. NEW YORK, N. Y., December 3. The management of the Saratoga Association for the Improvement of the Breed of Horses has received a liberal response to their offering of stakes to be run during the 1923 meeting at the Spa. Not all of the prizes which will be offered by the organization which has for its president Richard T. Wilson and George H. Bull as its secretary have closed, but several for which nominations are now due have a bearing on the future of the sport, because of their furnishing a conclusive test of the qualities breeders are trying to infuse into their horses. Chief among these events are the Travers and Alabama Stakes, the former for entire colts and fillies and the latter for fillies exclusively. These are among the best prizes of the year for three-year-olds and have in recent years furnished line contests. They have values of 2,500 and 0,000 respectively. Yearling prospects are now named for the races which will be decided in 1924. Conspicuous among the prizes for two-year-olds of 1923 are the Hopeful, now of a guaranteed value of 0,000 ; the Grand Union Hotel and United States Hotel Stakes, each of a value of 0,000. Another fine race for two-year-olds is the Spinaway, for fillies exclusively, which has a value of ,500 and will be ruh over the three-quarters route, the same as the other big features open to colts and fillies.
