PLENTY OF HORSES FOR LEXINGTON Over Three Hundred Already on the Grounds with Several Hundred More to Arrive Later. Lexington, Ky., September. 1. The shortage of horse cars In which racers from the east may be shipped by express to Lexington for participation in the Kentucky Associations fall meeting of ten days, beginning September 11, is serving as a topic for discussion among racing devotees and horsemen here. Checking up this morning, Superintendent James P. Boss reported that approximately 300 horses are on the grounds and ready to nice and it is estimated that another hundred or so are quartered in stables outside of the associations property. Probably 150 horses will come from Louisville and Latonia, so a good meeting can be had even should no horses get there from Saratoga, which is not at all probable. "Dont worry about horses . for our meeting." commented Judge William Shelley. "Therell be plenty and it will be oiie of the best meetings the Kentucky Association ever had." The rnlis of Wednesday and Thursday were hard enough td leave the track heavy and to send the horses to the sand course, with the result that there were no lust moves the last half of the week.
