NEW YORK, N. Y.. May 1.— The New York racing season of 1923 will be inaugurated by D Metropolitan Jockey Club at Jamaica jjj with an attractive program, which includes K K. ,000 Paumonok Handicap and the ,000 for ft Suffolk Stakes. Both races have filled well, fourteen having g been named for the Paumonok, while nine tl carded to contest the Suffolk. While q latter will command considerable atten- H tion the main interest will be centered in the T Tii decision of the Paumonok. Tryster is the top weight of those named to start and the for- ■ mer Whitney racer is reported to be in fine fettle and ready for a sterling performance, j He will have such good ones as Snob II., f, Domonique, Rocket. Knobbie, Zev, Emotion and others as probable opponents and a rat- tl tlinp good contest is in prospect. 2 New York race goers will find Jamaica a much improved over last year. For several c weeks past a corps of painters and carpenters have been engaged in refurbishing the r clubhouse and grandstand. Both are as re- n splendant as on the day the track was thrown g open for the first time almost twenty years n ago. From the outset Jamaica has been popular with the public. Its clubhouse and Q stands are commodious, and spectators have t perfect view of the horses at every part of f the race. For those who look upon a mile s course as the best for racing Jamaica and Empire City will always have a following. t just as Gravesend and Brighton Beach had . in the days of old. j • c
