HEAVY TRACK AT KING EDWARD PARK KING EDWARD PARK, August 13. The opening days races at King Edward Park tomorrow are likely to be run over : heavy track, the rain of last night leaving the track muddy today and the weather outlook is still none too promising. Despite the number of horses which are leaving for Erie, Pa., and Quebec City meetings the stabling accommodations at the island course is still taxed to capacity. Among the owners shipping to the Quebec City course tomorrow are J. S. Baldwin, J. Lewis and T. B. Waters. The star of the latter string My Graeie, although improving rapidly frpm a severe kick received during the first meeting at King Edward Park, will be unable to race for another month. L. T. Whitehill and A. G. Dunlap will send their stables from Delorimier Park to Dorval to await the opening of the meeting there, which follows shortly after the close of the island course. The officials for the King Edward meeting will be the same as at Delorimier Park with the exception that Elmer Wilson will succeed Edward Tribe as starter. Mr. Tribe goes to Quebec City meeting to do the starting there.
