UNITED HUNTS STAKE RACE Amateur Meeting in the Fall Will Have ,500 Juvenile Fixture. Event Arranged for Two-Year-OId Non-Winners of ,000 Avlth Penalties and Allowances at Seven-Eighths Mile. NEW YORK, N. Y., Jan. 2S. That the United Hunts Racing Association is doing its part in the promotion of high-class sport in this vicinity is indicated in the announcement that a new stake for two-year-olds will be run under its auspices at Belmont Park next fall. The fixture, which will carry a guaranteed cash value of ,500, has been named the Blemton by president John McE. Bowman and his associates out of compliment to the chairman of the Jockey Club, who raced Lady Violet, Hastings and a lot of other fine performers under the name of the Blemton Stable, following the death of his father in 1890. Lady Violet was the first to race under that name in 1S92. BELMONT HELPS UNITED HUNTS. Major Belmont has from the first taken a kindly interest in the meetings of the United Hunts, and has given them the use of the Belmont Park course free of charge. He knows the value of the amateur in sport and has been to the fore in every movement that was calculated to make friends for the turf. Under the conditions of the Blemton Stakes, entries for which will close with secretary H. A. Buck at the office of the organization, 66 West -10th street, on Wednesday, February 20, winners of a race of the value of ,000 will be ineligible to start in that event. Penalties and allowances are so adjusted that the spread between the top and bottom weights will not be too great. BLEMTON SHOULD J RAW WELL. The Blemton Stakes should receive the most liberal patronage from owners, as the amateur sportsman of the East have been ready to do their part in the preservation of the turf at all times. Those owners who are fortunate enough to have a two-year-old capable of winning ,000 or more in a single event should not begrudge the 0 necessary to carry a candidate to the day of the race. They will have the satisfaction of knowing that the money has been contributed to a good cause. The conditions of the Blemton Stakes in full follow: BLEMTON STAKES. For two-year-olds.
