I ! ■ j THAT NEW WINDSOR TRACK IS ASSURED. It Is Controlled by the Kenil worth Racing Association and Is Being Constructed Now. Toronto. Ont.. May 11. — The Kenilworth Racing Association will in all probability be the name under which the new track at Windsor will be operated. Perhaps the reason for adopting this name was because the mammoth steel constructed stand of Kenilworth Park at Duffalo has been purchased for the new course and will be taken down and transferred there. This stand is 415 feet long and the weight of the steel in it is estimated at 300 tons. It will be shipped by rail to Windsor. Thomas Hare, of Toronto, is at present in Windsor superintending the laying out of the new track and looking after the building of the stables. The track will lie a mile in circumference, with a quarter-mile chute. Doth books and the pari-mutuels will be put on for the service of the bettors. The A. M. Orpen Contracting company, of Toronto, is building the track, while A. J. Rattray, of Toronto, is the architect and Hepburn and Disher, of Toronto, are the steel contractors. The inaugural meeting will take place from August 30 to September 5. This is a week after the close of the Windsor Jockey Clubs meeting and will take in Labor day. The second meeting will close racing in Canada for the year, it being scheduled to oi en on October 14. tin Saturday following the close at Hillcrest Park, Toronto, and closing on October 21.
