HOLD NEALONS ENTRY TO SUBURBAN. Jockey Club Has Nst Been Officially Advised of C. E. Durnells Reinstatement. New York, January !.— The entry of Nealon for tin- Suburban Handicap and other races is held up until the standing of his owner, C. E. Durnell, has been determined by tile stewards of the Jockey Club. Nealon was named for several stakes as the partnership property of Durnell and Barney Schreiber. but to run in the name of Durnell. The refusal to accept the entry is occasioned by the fact that the Jockey Club has not been officially notified by the Pacific- Coast Jockey Club that Durnell has been reslored to good standing. The Jockey Club will not accept the published reports of such cases as official and demand confirmation by the turf body making such a ruling. Durnell was reinstated last fall before the end of the season in the east and he was afterwards admitted to all courses from which he had been haired all the year. He made no attempt to race, however, nor did he apply for a license to train. The stewards will In all probability act on the case at their meeting tomorrow. The entry of Nealon has not been thrown out, but simply held up pending action by the stewards as to the right of Durnell to make an entry. Sensational stories were published here today in reference to the c as* which brought in the names of John W. Gates, long a friend and backer of Durnell. John A. Drake and other well-known turfmen, bnt there is nothing in the case at this stage to warrant them, though it is difficult, of course, to forecast the fiction that will be taken by the stewards. Old Boaeatyl entry to the Suburban and Brighton Handicaps has been refused liecausc there are forfeits of .fJOO against him -SUB held by the Brighton Beach Racing Association from the Produce Stakes and ."i due to James R. Keene from the Matron Stakes. It is entirely likely that A. J. Gorey, his owner, who is a resident of Paris, Ky., overlooked these outstanding forfeits, bat it is a rule that forfeits must be paid before entries are accepted ami neglect is no excuse in these days. Incidentally A. E. Darnaby, the trainer of Old Honesty, is in the forfeit list for 00, being a fine assessed by the stewards pf the Jockey Club. The following additional entries have been received to the Suburban, bringing the total number to eighty-two, not countiug the entries of Nealon and Old Honesty: Proper, Borghesi, Jack At kin. Eogistilla, Guiding Star. Tony Faust, Dr. Leggo. from California, and Tokalon and First Premium from Texas.
