Twenty Years Ago Today Chief Turf Events of Nov. 10, 1903 Racing at Jamaica and Latonia. A surprise is in store for patrons of the Benning meeting, which begins one week from tomorrow. Visitors will find practically a new course. The additions to the brood mare list at the Castleton Stud of J. R. and F. P. Keene of fillies from their American and English racing stables has resulted in their decision to dispose of eleven of their noted brood mares, it being the object to confine the stud matrons of this famous place to one hundred in number. The mare3 they have decided to sell are mated to the stallions Kingston, Ben Brush, Voter and St. Leonards. Nominations to the Burns Handicap of 1904 by far exceed the records of former years in both numbers and quality, and extraordinary interest will attach to the next decision of the chief race of the coast. Such horses as Kenil-worth, Claude Argregor, Lucien Appleby, His Eminence, Sidney C. Love, Orsina and Beau Ormonde are named and would be acceptable material for any handicap in the land. Stamping Ground, Colonsay, Sheriff Bell and Wild Thyme were the only starters for th3 Mineola Handicap, the feature race at Jamaica today, and they finished in the order named above. The distance was one and onc-six-tscnth miles, for three-year-olds, with ,500 added. Stamping Grouud is in rare form at the present time and showed the way for the entire distance, but tired somewhat in the final eighth, but jockey Higgins tock no chances and rode her out. Only aads separated the other three. Wild Thyme could not concede the weight she was asked to give, but ran a game race, tiring only in the last hundred yards.
