Mich., April 21. — Grant Hugh Browne, preuielciit of the Western Racing Association, operating Devonshire Park, iu Windsor, paid a short visit to general manager Frank Sullivan Wednesday and le-ft imnii-diately for New Orleans, where some important business needs his personal attention. He appeared to be enthusiastic over the prospects of a successful meeting May 12-1!. despite the fact it will be- the first time that the runners pe-r-foi-ineil across the river from Detroit before July. While in the east Mr. Browne, did some missionary work among the horsemen at Havre de Oraoe and Howie-, and he- says assurances were given him that at least 120 horses would lie shipped from those points to Wimlsor soon enough to lie quar-tered comfortably by the time the first bugle blows at Devonshire. His own string, numbering close to twenty, ready for the races, will wear the Hrowne colors at the meeting, the advance guard of them coming with the early consignments from Havre de Grace. King Herod and Crepuscule. imported eligibles for the KVntucky Handicap, will not put in an appearance here until after that three -year-old race is decided, but will lie saddled for races framed for thoroughbreds of their caliber in Canada.
