GOOD OUTLOOK FOR JUAREZ RACING. No matter what is ; Juarez Mexico. October 9. — the result of action taken by the Fan-American ! conferees on the present warfare in Mexico, the . Jockey Club Juarez track will open its gates on next Thanksgiving day. November 25. for its usual , winter race meeting of a hundred or more racing . • lav- ll is a matter if record that in one year , the long winter meeting at the Jockey Club Juarez ! track was run under changes of governments in the state of Chihuahua of five different administrations. It is well to mention that these changes at no nine interrupted the meeting al this course for a single la. . Conditions at this track for the coining season ! were never more rosy. The surrounding territory la this Mexican city and the great Texas city of r El Paso op|M»-;itc. were never so free of war disturbances sine the days of peace under the Diaz f . rule in this country. Tlieii again great crops in he . far southwest have made conditions at present almost up to the greatest of Ixsmi times and it is s that section of Ihe 1iiited States that has always ; furnished tile chief patronage of the Juarez course. Juarez- neighboring city. El Paso, is one of the . most flourishing of towns and at the present time no place auvwherc near its size at all compares j! with it It has a wonderful accommodation for the traveling public, owing to it being the gateway. i in it only to Mexico, liut to California as well. Its hotel accommodations are almost the equal of any ■ of the great cities of America and at tlieni can be • weured every modern comfort and convenience. Moreover, it is an ideal place to spend tin- winter - as its high altitude furnishes the purest of air r and makes it one of the greatest of health resorts The Juarez plant is one of the most -ostl.v and 1 perfect in ap|N.lntineiits ami has called for a greater r outlay of money than any track laid out, with the » exception of Belmont Park. Each year there have • Iteen many improvements made at this plant, until 1 now it seems as if it is impossible to suggest anything - that would make it more | erfect. It w s one of the few courses from which a g N d view of a 1 race in its running can be seen from any part of I the grounds. Like all courses in warm countries, ■ its lawns are a great attraction to visitors and it is by no means an occasion out of the ordinary, . to s -e on a winter afternoon, when in tlie northern states tlie ground is covered with ice ami snow, ; the great crowd of gentlemen and ladies in spring " dress and attire. Sin -e last winter the track of a mile and an „ eight around, has ! eeu raised so as to give it t perfect drainage and now. even a heavy downfall 1 of rain will «piicklv eva|Nirate. and even a heavy f fall of snow can have little effect on the soil, any r more than to cause a good cushion when it melts s and runs off. So now it will not be necessary to . at any time posi|h.iie the races, on account of any V extraordinary weather conditions during the coming g wiuter. .. . At the -oiic1iis:oii of the present meeting at 1 1 aurel Manager M. J. Winn will at once leave for r Juarez to prepare all the details of the coining • winter ssMsm, The train, which is always gotten ! up b Eugene Elrod. will leave tin- l.atonia track 6 as soon as the meeting there canes to a close on " OctoU-r 2".
