Already several of tho stables that have campaigned through Canada are on hand and reservations have been made for many shipments from New York. A number of New York stables that will try for the prizes here will take part in the meeting at Empire City this week and from there will come ou to Baltimore. The track has been put in the very best of condition for the season, and much work has been done to the steeplechase course. It has been almost entirely rejrraded and the fences have all been furnished with new brush until It is one of the best fields in the country. Steeplechasing has always been tremendously popular at the Pimlico meeting and this season wilt be no exception from the others. It is assured that there will be a good band of jumpers to draw from, and tho program book affords them ample opportunity. , Pimlico has its regulars, and they are loyal, but this season they will havo to quarrel with several newcomers for the purse money.
