1 SARATOGA TURF NOTES . $ Matt Brady will start Mr. Khayyam in the Saranac Handicap for the Catawba Farm Stable, Friday, provided the going is fast. The American Derby winner is handicapped over other than a fast track. Should the going be muddy he has Good Advice to fall back on, a colt that races well over any condition of going. Both are eligible for the mile and three-sixteenths of the Ken-ner Stakes, to be run next Tuesday and the present plan is to send Good Advice after that prize. At private terms T. H. McCreery sold the jumper Sardaneza to Mrs. Marie Goodwin, in whose name and colors he raced Wednesday. J. L. Donovan arrived from Rockingham Park and stated that the horses he has there will be freshened up for the fall meeting. Clarence Turner was a visitor from Rockingham Park and stated that Dunrock was badly cut down in his last race requiring ten stitches to close the wound. Leila Bennett, well known Hollywood actress, was a club house visiter rf the day. The brood mares that were purchased by W. H. Gallagher out of the Victor Emanuel sale were shipped to P. T. Chinns farm in Kentucky, while the yearlings were shipped to Jamaica to be broken and educated. G. Windle, under contract to W. J. Ziegler, rode his twentieth winner astride Marcasite Tuesday and thereby lost his seven pound allowance. J. H. Louchheim and Merrit Buxton left for Tioga Center, N. Y., to attend the funeral services of the late Elisha Lee, for, whom the two-year-old Elylee was named. Roy Waldron arrived from Windsor in quest of racing material for the fall Canadian meetings. Ray Scherer, who has been on the ailing list for the past few days, resumed his clubhouse duties. W. H. Bringloe, formerly trainer for the Seagram Stable, arrived from Hamilton and will stay for several days. The three-year-old Over Time, owned by Mrs. J. H.
