It was assumed, however, that they would, emulate the enterprising and encouraging example of the premier racing organization. This the Brooklyn Jockey Club lias , done in good stylo and it is surprising that the prosperous Brighton Beach Racing Association has not pursued the same course. It is now in order to await the action of the Westchester Racing Association along the same lines. It should -be said that the,, increases noted arc not all that are to be made. Stakes that arc to close on other dates are also tp be raised in value.
