Sou. Donald Macdonald and Kodwino. There arc but few empty stalls at Woodbine now and those that are unoccupied have been reserved for s mic of the late comers. Torontonians are anxious for the meeting to begin and indications SSSSMl to the sport being of even higher class than in any prcvioiiK season. The Canadian Raring Asso. nations is ruling with an iron hand and those participating in th racing will have to come clean this season. Many applications have been turned down, not only from hor-cs and riders, but from layers as well. Tipsters are a thing of the past in this SBCttsa and anything savoring of the tout or schemer will be severely dealt with. The general opinion is that racing in the Dominion is now on a solid foundation and that the sport will thrive. It has 1h-.ii detinit- ly announced that both the Ontario and Hamilton Jockey Clubs will adopt the niutuel system of U-tting iKt fall and it looks as if the after clubs of the circuit will fall into line. Today was work day for several of the Kings Platers, and the trials of Koltcrt Davies Frolic and f. Meaghers Parade would seem to eliminate them as dangerous factors.
