Damroseh. which has been a disappoint -nmit so far this aeaaaa, gets in favorably at 107 pounds, ami it is possible that a ehaaauj of tracks and surroiindiiigs may bring improvement in his form. A steeplechase is an added attraction and a well matched band are named to go in this race. The track is in better condition than at any time since it was built and, with the meeting well advertised throaghoat the surrounding country, a succes fu] season of racing is anticipated by" the club. Th.-re are more horses here than ever before as is shown by the fields entered for the opening day of the meeting. A majority of the big stables that raced at Btae Beaaets shipped over. Some few wen- delayed in coming on account of the shortage of cars, but the late comers are due to arrive in the morning.
