NOTES OF THE TURF. A., Cincinnati. Do not use Indianapolis races. Mincowsky, Cincinnati, • O. Betting as quoted was correct. C. E. B., Chicago. Time at Chicago and Detroit is the same. F. G. B. The parlay was void as to Gold Bell and won on Santon place. Inquirer. A bet made on one horse of an entry, in a handbook, is decided by the running of that horse alone. Argonaut, Toronto, Ont. The rejuvenated I Bennings track will have an advanced rat ing in the Manual of next year. It is now fully 875. Se far this year Africander has won 9,055. Being sound and heavily engaged, he appears destined to a prominent place In the list of great winners. Phil. M., Cincinnati. The prices on Savable and Allan-a-Dale were correctly given. Subscriber, Chicago. Jim Clark was 7 to 10 to show, July 6. J. Miller, Chicago. If the bet on Mrs. Frank Foster was at closing odds or average odds, or was to be paid at ticker quotations, it is a draw. If it was at highest quotations it was a loser. F. R. Henry, HI. There is no such book that we know of. Handicappers work on various systems and devise their own books of figures and comparison, based on the daily running of the horses. C. W., Chicago. You are entitled to your money back on Gold Bell. Your bet at the time it was made was plainly on the second race and as the horse was scratched there is no question that the bet was a draw. So far western two-year-olds are disappointing. A number are speedy and weight-carrying performers, but none stands out as being of surpassing excellence. Perhaps the Hyde Park Stakes may introduce a real star.
