opinion of her merits Her start in the race will be con ¬ tingent on her showing tomorrow in a quarter preliminary Her half mile trial this morning was satisfactory to her trainer trainerThe The Brooks presence in the Shilleluh Steeplechase is pleasing to the lovers of the sport through the field and keen interest attaches to his probable showing under the heavy impost of 173 pounds poundsALL ALL BOADS LEAD TO SABATOGA SABATOGAIt It appeared as if all roads led today to Sara ¬ toga and a constant stream of automobiles arrived from various parts of the country The railroads were taxed to capacity and were all equipped with many extra coaches If any notables in the racing world or prominent in a sporting way are missing it is not apparent for everybody seems to be here or have made plans to be here The boxes in the clubhouse section have all been allotted and many have suffered disappointment over failure to procure one of the choice vantage points The demand for box space this

from the Kentuckians during the earlier period of racing here for many of those from the Blue Grass section have announced their intention of taking matters easy and give their charges all the resting spell they can afford to for they have an eye to the future in doing this The main object is to freshen up their racers l efore returning to Kentucky where they will have opportunity to earn stupendous purses and at the same time not have to run against such strenuous opponents as they will be forced to meet here while racing for smaller prizes prizesThere There will be disappointment in Kentucky over the failure of Midway to be an early starter but his absence is due to a light cut lie received in his lust Kentucky start which has refused to yield to trainer Wards treatment It will probably be a couple of weeks before he will face the barrier Continued on second pace AWAITING THE BUGLE CALL Continued from first page Ecoba tpp Avlll have to delay his debut here for this season
