A. K. MACOMBER SALE Good Prices Realized for Horses Imported from France. Forty Head Bring a Total of 40,750 J. 0. Keene Pays Top Prices. NEW YORK, N. T., December 16. Dur-lands Riding Academy greatly resembled the Saratoga paddock Friday evening. The occasion was the sale of tlie forty mares sent over from the Haras du Quesnay, A. K. Macombers French breeding farm. And it was a truly remarkable sale when the forty brought a total of 40,750, an average of , 518.75. Both breeders and sportsmen wero there from everywhere and in the great crowd a vast proportion had come with no intention of buying. It was an opportunity to foregather with turfmen and at the same time to see the mares. George Bain was at his best on the auction block and Christopher J. Fitz Gerald, who managed the sale for Mr. Macomber, shared in the success of the evening. Bidding was at all times spirited and many who had made selections were unable to obtain what was wanted and came away empty handed. Miss Elizabeth Daingerfield was one of the chief buyers and she was representing Mont-fort and B. B. Jones, as well as some other clients. Edward Ccbrian was another who bought extensively, while J. O. Keene paid the top prices and took four of the mares. He was representing a new thoroughbred breeding confederacy that will be announced before long. The mares purchased by Mr. Keene will be bred to his Ultimus stallion Luke McLuke. F. Ambrose Clark, J. H. Rosseter and Samuel C. Hildreth were among the bidders who helped boost the prices considerably and of the trio Mr. Rosseter was the only one to make a purchase. Captain P. M. Walker was another to bid unsuccessfully and Walter J. Salmon was on hand, but his name does not appear among the purchasers, though he was a bidder. TOP PRICE FOR SAND BLAST. The top price of the sale was 2,000, which was paid by J. O.. Keene for Sand Blast, a ten-year-old daughter of Maintenon and Sand Flake, by Trenton. She was bred to McKinley last spring. This was one that Mr. Clark wanted and he carried the bidding to 1,000 before he gave way to Mr. Keene. Then, before Mr. Keene was able to secure War Love, he was carried to 1,500 and that was the second best price of the evening. This is a five-year-old daughter of Prince Palatine and Sun Glass and was bred to Maintenon. Captain Walker, Mr. Rosseter and Mr. Clark were all Contenders for this mare. Edward Cebrian paid one of the top prices when he took Scramble, a daughter of Le Melior and Tangle for ,300. There was a deal of contention for this one and among the bidders were S. C. Hildreth and Mr. Rosseter. The highest price paid by Miss Daingerfield was for Palestra, a daughter of Prince Palatine and Adana, and only a three-ycir-old. This filly was finally knocked down for SG.600. NOTABLES AT SALE.
