NO RECORD FOR OLD HONESTY. New York, August 23. Old Honesty is not entitled to a record of 1:434 for a mile and one hundred yards at Empire City track last Tuesday. The track officials after measurement from the starting point, announce that the race was run over a distance nearly forty yards short of one mile and one hundred yards. All races carded at one mile and one hundred yards previous to Wednesday last were run over the incorrect distance. The starting point was set right yesterday.
