AVith the running of the International Handicap, to which 0,000 is added, racing will be ushered in at Kenilworth Park tomorrow afternoon. The feature attraction of the afternoon is for three-year-olds and over, at a mile and an eighth, and will bring together the cream of the long-distance performers in these parts. AVeather predictions for tomorrow are for clear skies. The track is at its best and an attendance of record-breaking proportions is expected to witness the clash of the champions. The long stretch at Kenilworth and the elimination of the sharp turns will work to the better advantage of several of the startera in the race. Trainer McDaniel has named three for Commander J. K. L. Ross, including the top-weight Boniface, Muttikins and Registrar. Boniface was winner of the Frontier Stakes at AVindsor with practically the same horses as opponents, but in tomorrow afternoons dash he will be asked to pick up six pounds more, while Firebrand, from the Jefferson Livingston stable, and the hope of the Ken-tuckians, is in with 121. Thirteen have been named overnight to compete for the rich prize and each at one time or another on the Canadian circuit has a stake victory to his or her credit. Radio is the lightweight of the band, having been allotted ninety-eight pounds by the handicapper, and is coupled with John Finn in the entry list. The consensus of opinion among horsemen and followers is that Boniface will probably go to the pest the first choice and Firebrand will be second choice. Excuses were offered for the latters defeat in the Frontier arid it was said that he came out of the race with cuts about his legs. Jockey Mack Garner will arrive here in time to ride the Livingston star. Trainer McDaniel this morning was undecided as to who would ride Boniface, but in all probability Ambrose will have the mount.

The secondary feature is a sprinting affair at three-quarters under claiming conditions that brings ou the best cf the second-rate sprinters on the circuit. The other races have been conditioned for the most part to horses that favor a long route. The chute which was constructed this spring will be used during tomorrow afternoon, when a field will go the seven-eighths distance. G. AV. Glick has applied for a trainers license and will in future train his own horses. Trainer B. B. Rice reported today that following this meeting he would ship the H. E.
