Twenty Years Ago Today Chief Turf Events of April 7, 1904 Racing at Memphis and San Francisco. Kinlochs racing book for the initial week | of its meeting is out, thus emphasizing the | fact that the racing season is near. , Captain S. S. Brown has notified the New | Tennessee Breeders Association that he will have a starter in the Cumberland Derby in cither Auditor or Proceeds and he has asked that ten stalls be reserved for him. _______ James McLaughlin has a coming jockey in ! htth Miller. The latter is a light lad and has not had a great deal of experience, but he possesses all the qualifications of a star. He is as quick as lightning at the post and as cool as an iceberg in getting away. UnLke most jockeys in their novitiate, he can bide his time and, thanks to McLaughlins careful in | structions, he does not use the whip too reck- lessly. That the new Los Angeles Jockey Club is an important factor in winter racing is amply established by the fact that during the course of winter racing at Ascot Park the substantial total of 15,170, a daily average of 391, was won by owners who raced their horses over that fine new course. An addition of one-third to the gross amount that can be won in the winter racing in California will not be overlooked by owners in the future and will operate powerfully in the way of alluring men and horses to the coast next winter, heretofore strangers to racing west of the Rocky Mountains. Barney Schreiber was fortunate at Ascot Park and an easy first in the list of winning owners, with Edward Corrigan second. Pat Dunne, C. E. Durnell, H. T. Griffin, James Curl and J. Bondy all achieved a fair measure of success. Schreibcrs total was the goodly sum of 7,210, while Corrigan accounted for 1,245 in stakes and purses. In the list of winning horses at Ascot Park Warte Nicht was the leader with ,315 won. Haviland and Oarsman tied for second place with ,880 each.
