i Twenty Years Ago Today Chief Turf Events of Feb. 21, 1904 Sunday, no racing. Acefull, which was sent to England at the close of his two-year-old year, gives promise of being one of the stars of the string to be raced by Herman B. Duryea this season. With the others of the Duryea lot which have stabled at Sheepshead Bay since the return from abroad this four-year-old son of Mirthful Myrtle Harkness has enjoyed the best of health and trainer Lew Elmore has him about ready for strong galloping as soon as the weather and track conditions permit. The Hawthorne stakes for the spring and summer meetings, which have just closed, show a total number of nominations approximately the same as last season. There is a slight falling off in the entries for the stakes for the older division as compared with last year, principally in the long-distance events, but the two-year-old stakes show a corresponding increase. The prominent western stables are all well represented by liberal entry lists and the large number made by John W. Schorr indicates his intention to confine his racing to the western tracks.
