[By Telegraph to The Tribune.]
Saratoga Springs. N. Y. Aug. 20. — S. C.
Hildreth's Novelty set the seal on his great
ness at the track here to-day by taking up
130 pounds and winning: the Hopeful
Stakes, of $25.1)00, from a strong and high
class field of two-year-olds.
The son of Kingston — Curiosity followed
the fast pace closely until straightened out

six furlongs of I 14. considering the rather
dead and cuppy condition c." the track.

the barrier and forced the running, was
tiring at the end. but lasted long enough
to defeat R. T. Wilson, jr.'s, Xaushon a |

The victory placed Mr. tlildreth at the

season, with 5100,000 in round figures to
his credit, a position from which he Is not
likely to be displaced, even if James R.
Keene wins the Futurity, as the vice-chair
man of the Jockey Club is now second on
the list, with about $60,000.
Mr. Hildreth did not follow up his success
by winning the Merchants and Citizens'
Handicap. He scratched Fitz Herbert once
more and depended an Dalmatian and
Hampton Court, but the last named wrs
outclassed, and Dalmatian, the champion
thre*»-year-old of the season, found the task
too great in conceding weight according to

Disadvantage, was purchased here to-day
by Harry Payne, Whitney for $30,000 at
the dispersal sale of the Newcastle Stable,
owned by Andrew Miller and Tom Welsh.
The filly, which is ranked as one of the
best two-year-olds in training, is the fa

to be run here on Augxift 31. and the com

paddock applauded, and it broke out afresh
when the first bid was $15,000. 6. C. Hil

acting- for Harry Payne Whitney, were the
chief bidders, and the price climbed until
the others withdrew when Mr. MoCurdy
bid $30,0>J0. Bashti is eligible for the Eng

will be shipped abroad this fall, as Mr.
Whitney is racing a big- stable in England.

PLAN INTERCITY RACE
Boston Yachtsmen Coming to
Sea Gate Regatta.
So many interesting fixtures have been
arranged by th*» re»?atra committee of the
Atlantic Yacht Club that it is difficult to
say what is going to be the most important
feature of the annual race week of the or
ganization that -"ill open on Wednesday.
In all probability the Intercity race between
New Fork and Boston will create the most
Interest :n the yachting world. Tt is not
lily known that the race has been
It has been several years since there has
betrn a race between the yachtsman of the
two cities. The last contest was for Q
boats, and the Boston tars easily defeated
the Gravesend Bay Corinthians. The race
this year will be for Class P yachts, and it
is expected that the New York boats will
be able to turn the tables on their rivals
from Massachusetts Bay. Boston will be
represented by the Mavourneen, which be
longs to George Lee: the Timanda, the
property of George B. Fallon. jr., and H.
S. Wheelock'a Amoret. The New York
boats will be the Cara Mia. the property
of Stuyvesant Wainwright; Richard A.
Monks's Windward, and the Mimosa 111.
which belongs to Edmund Reeks.
The intercity race against Boston is not.
the only special match that has been ar
ranged for the week. The yachtsmen of
the [slip Yacht Club will send a team of
at least six boats to race against the inter
club class of the Larchmont Yacht Club.
Several other one-defign classes also will
take part in the race week. The Heliport
Bay Yacht Club will send at least six of
its peed boats to Sea Gate, and it is ex
pected tll.lt at least ten of the one-design
boats of the 1 edarhurst Yacht Club will
take part in the regatta. Of course, the
New York Yacht Club thirty-footers will
be on the Lower Bay to take part in what
promises to be the most interesting series
of the season. The South Bay Yacht dub,
of Patchogue, also may be represented In
the big regatta.
In addition to the contests among the
one-design classes the resrular divisions all
will race during the week The most im

the third series for the Thompson trophy
fur Class Q yachts. A new Upton cup
also is up for competition. Although this
nice, the first of the series, will be held
during the Atlantic week, the contest will
be managed by the Crescent Athletic Club,
which is the sponsor for the trophy. The
Upton ■'!!) has been offered for Class S
Although unupunl care lias been taken
to arrange an attractive programme for

in Disappointing Breeze.
The Stamford Yacht <"iub had a BOO*
fleet, but a somewhat disappointing breeze,
for its twentieth annual regatta, sailed on
the Sound off Shippan Point yesterday
There were sixty-five entries, but only a
little more than half came to the starting
line. One of the absentees was the Wind
ward, which had been counted on to till
Class P and make a race for the Cara Mia
(antain Wain wright. of the latter, crossed
rhe line on signal, but came back and
asked the regatta committee if it could not
find something to give him a race, as he
did not care for a sailover
The old sloop Ramallah, Captain E H
Tucker, entered the lists, and the pair
were started more than ten minutes after
rhr ''lass time.
Altogether thirtT'-seven yachts started.
While manoeuvring for position the yaw!
Grace II and the sloop Nimbus 111 came
ii. contact, with the result that the former
lost her bowsprit. Nevertheless she crossed
the line. That was the only mishap of the
day. and no protest was lodged by either
There was a fresh easterly breeze at 12:30
when the warning signal was given, but
after furnishing a spirited start it died out
and left the yachts drifting idly about the
Sound durinsr most of the afternoon. After
4 o'clock a light air from the south brought
the yach'.s home with spinnakers set The
r ours>e« were trianjrular and the racers had
a broad reach on the first leg. a beat along
the L«on*r Island shore on the second leg
and a run down.
The regatta committee. R. H. Gillespie.
chairman; H. S. Hart. J. S. Jenkins. Ed
ward Corning and Bartholomew Jacob, had
the use for the day of the oceangoing tug
Vigilant, tendered to them by her owner,
Mr. McWllliams. Chairman Gillespie, who
is also commodore of the club, entertained
captains and crews of the yachts on board
the Vigilant after the race.
The winners were the Cara Mia, tne
Xepsi. the Juanita. the Bedouin, the Rascal
111 the Dagmar, the Houri, the Nereid,
the' Iney, the Scamp and the Let-Her-Be.
The Wasp had a sail over.

Best Drivers Enter for National
Chicago. Aug. 20. — To read the entry list
for the national stock chassis road races
of the Chicago Motor Club at Eljrtn on
Friday and Saturday of next week is like
calling the roll of the most brilliant and
clever drivers in America, for with but
one or two exceptions every driver of
prominence in the country has determined
to have a try at th« bi^ money and hand
some trophies that have been huns up for
competition over the SU-mile circuit
which lies Just west of Elgin.
In a nutshell, one micht *«>■ that all the
stars have entered, with the exception of
Ralph de Palnia. Louis Chevrolet and Bob
Barman, and it Is more than possible that
the Flat pilot will be an eleventh hour
candidate The entry list do»'« not close
until Saturday night, and it is reported
the Fiat people in New York are workinjr
tooth and nail to -• •' a car ready for Elßin.
Robertson in the Simplex. Grant in th«
Alco. Harrbun and Duwson In Marinons.
Oldrield in the Knox Six, Mulford in th*

Ford. Greiner and Livingstone in Nation
als. Mdtson In a jCorbin, Endicott in a

The Klgin races will not start at day
lipht, as ■rill the Vandarbilt. for Western

point, nor can the roads be tied up so
early in the morning. Therefore, each
day's racing will start at 10 o'clock, and

BIG BOUTS SHOW SPEED
I Atlantic Yacht Club Holds Races
in Gravesend Bay,
Unusually fast time was made by the
larger boat? in the races to count in the
yacht racing: championship of Gravesend
i Bay. sailed under the auspices of the At
, lantic Yacht Club, yesterday. Once more
j the wind came from a quarter that made it
; impossible for the regatta committee, made
j up of H. E. Boucher, chairman, and Dr. J.
j E. De afund. to find a championship course
that gave the yachts any weather work. A3
1 a result, the boats went twice around a
; course made up of a run and three reaches.
The starting line was off the Atlantic
I Yacht Club house, and for the Oral time the
regatta committee used its new platform,
built for the big: race week of the organiza
tion, which is to start on Wednesday. Aug
ust 31. The platform Is a good fifteen feet
high, and as it Is built on the end of the
long dock at Sea Gate, it gives the commit
tee a splendid view of the course. At the
, starting hour the wind was light and from
i the south by west. It held from this quar
j ter and at about the same strength through
The first leg- was down the wind from the
1 starting line to a mark off Bensonhurst.
In the Q class, the Spider, which has been
■ doing exceptionally good work lately, was
the rtrst away, closely followed by the Gray-
Jacket. Then came the Florence, with the
, Soya many seconds astern. All set spinna
kers to starboard. The. Soya had consider
j able trouble in getting out the light sail, and
; as a result was practically out of the race
! when the boats gybed, booms to starboard,
jat the Bensonhurst mark. The Spider was
i the first to round, and then came the Gray
j Jacket, followed by the Florence.
It was a broad reach, with balloon--?, to
the Fort Hamilton mark. In the leg to the
! fort the Grayjacket footed well. and. al
; though she was at one time on almost equal
■ footing with the Spider, the latter craft
I was the first to turn the mark. A close
: reach to Craven Shoals, followed by an-
I other one to Sea Gate, completed the
course. At the end of the first round the
! Spider was timed at 3:47:35; the Grayjacket.
I 3:47:50; the Florence, 3:.V>:39. and the Soya
jat 3:51:04. The positions of the craft were
j not altered in the second round.
If the bur boats did not have any wind
: ward work the smaller classes had an cx
i cellent beat from Fort Hamilton to Sea
I Gate. The scrapping among the S boats
! was unusually keen. This division is pre
! paring for the first of the Upton Cup race 3
that is to be mailed under the auspices of
the Crescent Athletic Club during the race
I week of the Atlantic organization. Again the
* Blue Bill was a winner, and it is generally
i believed that the boat, in the hands of R.
■ B. Moore, will have no difficulty in scoring
the first win on the important trophy.
The winners in the other classes were 'the
knockabout Skylark, the dingy Aries. La
i Cubana in the first division of the handicap
j and the Breeze In the second division of the
I same class. Both the handicap boats won
on corrected time. The summary follows:
