Here and There on the Turf Aqueducts Nev Stake Eace Popular PopularIts Its WellDevised Conditions ConditionsJamaica Jamaica Stakes Well Pa ¬ tronized tronizedEugene Eugene Waylands Untimely Passing Nominations that were made to the stakes of the Queens County Jockey Club leave no doubt of the popularity of the new stake race the Broadway This is the race that affords some of the unfortunate colts and fillies a new chance It is framed for nonwinners of 5000 and in the eligible list will be found some of the most promising of the threeyearolds of the year which by reason of sickness or not coming to hand until late last year had no chance to win the 5000 that would bar them from starting startingTo To prevent an early 1923 development from meeting such horses there is a provision that winners of 5000 after the closing of the en ¬ tries become ineligible and the nomination fee is returned This race carries out the ideas of many of the other big fixtures in being re ¬ stricted to entire colts and fillies filliesFor For the first running there were seventy nominations and it is safe to predict that the Broadway Stakes will prove one of the most popular of the Aqueduct offerings offeringsThis This new stake race is framed at five pounds below the scale and the allowances are so ar ¬ ranged that it runs down from a top weight of 121 pounds all the way to 104 pounds the impost for a maiden maidenNonwinners Nonwinners of 3000 have a threepound allowance nonwinners of 2000 receive seven pounds those failing to win 1000 are allowed ten pounds and fourteen pounds is the allow ¬ ance for nonwinners of 700 with the maidens receiving seventeen pounds poundsThis This is a scale that has proved tremendously popular with the horsemen judging by the entries that have been obtained and it is a scale that should bring about a capital race raceThere There was another pleasing feature in the stake entries for the racing at Aqueduct and hat was in the steeplechase division Three steeplechases are down for decision in the stake list and each one showed a material increase in the nominations over the returns of 1922 In the Glendale Steeplechase there was an in ¬ crease of twelve nominations The increase in the Winfield Steeplechase was eighteen and the Bayside Stakes showed eleven more nomi ¬ nations than were received for the 1922 race raceThis This would tend to show that steeplechasing is far from being dead about New York and rather that it is due for improvement New jumpzrs are being made and that branch of racing has caused the importation of several from England and Ireland which are sure to lend interest to this spectacular variety of racing racingStake Stake entries that were received by the Met ¬ ropolitan Jockey Club for its spring meeting at Jamaica have been right up to the standard that has been set for 1923 by the other stake programs that have been closed They serve to further emphasize the fact that the racing prospect for 1923 is brighter than it was last year yearThere There was widespread regret among horse ¬ men at the passing of Eugene Wayland who died so suddenly Friday Those who knew him only as a conditioner of horses had a keen ad ¬ miration for his skill while those who knew him more intimately suffered a keen personal loss In his long and useful association with the turf his sterling integrity generosity and unfailing sunny disposition made him a man among men Gene Wayland won his way by his actual work The turf is indeed loser in the death of Eugene Wayland
