IMPROVEMENTS AT BELMONT Four New Fifty-Five Stall Stables Under Construction ā€” New Restaurant Under Stand. NFJW YORK, N. Y., April Gā€” While the snowfall of Tuesday was an unpleasant surprise to hOTSCSaon at the various New York tracks, the sun of Wednesday took most of it away and a day or two of warmth will make ! the going fast on all of the Long Island i courses. Superintendent Pels has both | courses at Belmont Park in fine condition this spring. The training ground will be still 1 further improved when the soil has been screened, as was done in the case of the regular course. This operation, which will begin ! in B few days, will furnish a velvety sur- I face that will be perfect for training opera- i tions. Though the Westchester Pacing Association already has an unusual amount of stabling. I Belmont Park is so popular for training purposes that it has been found necessary to 1 build additional quarters for the hors s and it is planned to add four stables of fifty-five stalls each to the equipment. Mr. Pels laid down the foundations for the first of these the latter part of last week and it will be hurried to completion. The work on the new restaurant under the grandstand is going along satisfactorily. and this improvement will be completed by the Opening of the spring meeting. There is no more delightful spot than Belmont Park in the spring and it is confidently expected that the new restaurant, which overlooks the beautiful paddock with the clubhouse and grounds of the turf and nasi club in the distance will be well patronized. No expense is being spared in the emhellishment of the dining room, which will be the finest of its kind in the country. Luncheon parties are an enjoyable accompaniment to racing, especially on gala clays, and Belmont Park with its new equipment will recall the time when people took their ! uport in a more leisurely manner than they i do today.
