Twenty Years Ago Today Chief Turf Events of Feb. 12, 1904 Racing at New Orleans, Los Angeles and San Francisco. It was announced today at Kansas City that starter Dwyer had been engaged to do the starting at the coming spring meeting to be held there beginning April 30. "Mattie" Corbett," the -well-known turfman, li3S leased from James R. Keenc for the season of 1904 the racing qualities of the following: Dalesman, Hurst Park, Dazzling, Out of Reach, Coppelia, Dovecote and the Lady Minting filly. The Futurity of 1906, entries to which closed last month, received 1,109 nominations of marcs, Mr. J. B. Haggin heading the list with no less than 265 nominations. The late W. C. Whitney was next with seventy-eight nominations, while the chairman of the Jockey Club, Mr. August Belmont, nominated forty-six. John E, Madden with fifty, Mrs. T. J. Carson, thirty-five, and H. T. Oxnard with sixty-eight stood high in the list. The statement that Gold Heels has not been entered in the 0,000 Worlds Fair Handicap at St. Louis is an error. Messrs. Hinde and Baker state that Mr. T. P. Hayes, who is training the horse at Memphis, has entered the 1902 Suburban winner in the big event and that he is expected to race the coming season. Hayes took Geld Heels with the understanding that he was to send him back to the owners the first of March if he did not stand training and that if he did he v.ould pay the firm ,000 for his racing qualities for 1904. Mr. Hayes states that Gold Heels has done as well as expected and the fact that he has made the February payment in the Worlds Fair Handicap indicates that he thinks well of his chances.
