present meeting as they naturally should be for it marked the most successful period of sport ever held in Kentucky From a financial point it exceeded any former meeting ut this1 track by nearly thirty per cent This is remarkable in view of the prosperous conditions that have formerly prevailed Had the weather been more propitious there would have been additional increase here for during the nineteen days they raced at Churchill Downs at least fourteen days witnessed the races run over a bad track and the weather likewise was disagree ¬ able The chief stakes including the Derby Clark and Kentucky Handicaps found the mud performers having an advantage advantageA A good part of the revenues of this season will revert back into improvements made necessary by the niiprecedcntly growing interest in the sjwrt which has made the spacious racing plants here wholly inadequate to accommodate the crowds on big days What decision will be made for con ¬ ducting the sport at either Churchill Downs or Douglas Park will not be reached until sometime later and will have full approval of the board of directors of the Kentucky Jockey Club It is now estimated that expenditures for improvements at either Douglas or Churchill Downs will go up to the 2H 00 mark and an outlay of this huge sum will require careful consideration with a view to permanency on the track where the improve ¬ ments are to lie made madeConsidering Considering the drawbacks iu the matter of track conditions the sport during the present meeting has been wholesome and the vigilance of the presidin officials lias been a beneficial check on any wh would attempt to play loose and fust The rough rider were given their full measure of punishment and regardless of whether the offender was a star staror or a beginner he was given a severe dose of pun ishment effectThe and it will have u beneficial effect The majority of the horses which engaged in the racing here and are to be transferred to Lutonia for the racing which begins there next AVednesday will IMS shipped by special train tomorrow Tin first special will depart in the morning and another will follow in the evening Many who were unable to secure express cars are availing themselves of the short distance from here to Latonia and are using box and Burton cars carsJockey Jockey Tlmrber was buck in the saddle but Pool and Troise were still feeling the effects of their fall yesterday They will probably be in condition to ride on the opening day at Latonia Jockey lUdenours most serious injury consists of a fractured collarbone and a deep gash on the left side of his face faceNo No advices have been received yet from trainer II G Bedwell as to what probable starters he will have in the Latonia Derby but Shilling expressed the opinion that it would more than probably be Sir Barton and AVur Pennant Billy Kelly will iu future it is said be reserved for sprints nnd mile dashes and lit em be reckoned among the missing in the mile and a half race
