Twenty Years Ago Today Chief Turf Events of Dec. 26, 1902 Racing at Newport, Ingleside and New Orleans. Barney Schreibers Boundlee, trained by J. Lowe, won the second race at the Fair Grounds. Jockey Bullman is riding in good form at Ingleside. Today he rode three winners out of four mounts, his other mount ran second and in no race did he have the mount on a favorite. J. J. Ogles, "Texas Smith," has joined the ranks of owners at New Orleans. He arrived today from his farm at Terrell, Tex., and brought with him the horses Governor Sayers, Madine, The Way, Compas and Exapo. Pageant, chestnut colt, by Star Ruby Tea-tro, from the stable of Mrs. M. C. Lyles, ran a good race to beat a high-class band of two-j-ear-olds in the New Orleans feature race. Some of the star two-year-olds at the southern track were entered against him. The St. Louis Fair Association has announced a tempting list of stakes to bz run in 1903 and also the conditions of the St. Louis Derbys to be run in 190-i and 1905, and the big 0,000 handicap which is to be the feature of racing in St. Louis in 1904. The stewards of the Fair Grounds at New Orleans today made the following report and recommendation: "After satisfactory proof that James Ownbey is the sole owner of the horses that have been running in the name of Hatfield and Ownbey and Hatfield, Ownbey and Co., we suggest that said James Ownbey be restored to all privileges as an owner and trainer." W. OB. Macdonough, with a son of his famous stallion Ormonde, captured the handicap at Ingleside. Bsau Ormonde beat one of the best handicap horses at that track when he defeated Sad Sam at three-quarters of a mile. Sad Sam was giving him five pounds, but Beau Ormonde could just as easily have taken up the extra five pounds and beat him. From the start to finish he was far in advance of his opponents with jockey Bullman easing him up to win by two and a half lengths. The new chute at Brighton Beach track has just been completed and it is sure to prove a popular innovation with horse owners, as the Brighton Handicap and other races at a mile and a quarter will not in future be started on the- turn. The chute extends all the way back to the boulevard and a perfectly straight run of three-eighths to the judges stand is the result. Seventeen horses can now be started for races at a mile and a quarter without crowding or the danger of accident that prevailed at the old starting point and have a straight run for more than a quarter of a mile.
