KENILWORTH PARK MEETING Total of 9,100 in Added-Money to Be Distributed During Week of August 27 to September 3. WINDSOR, OnL, Aug. 21. Kenilworth Park Club will distribute 9,100 in added money to winning owners at its second summer meeting, the week of August 27-rSep-tember 3. The condition book shows that no purse will be less than ,000 in value, while the majority of events will have an added value of ,200 or more. Special condition races or over night handicaps will carry not less than ,500 daily while three of them will be worth ,000 and one the Labor Day Handicap at a mile and sixteenth calls for a ,500 distribution. Kenilworth draws two very good days at its forthcoming meeting, the last Saturday in August and followed by Labor Day, on which afternoon the crowd ought to tax the capacity of the track. There will be no dearth of horses for the meeting as there will be fully 700 head to draw from at the conclusion of the Windsor Jockey Club meeting, August 2G. All of the Kentucky thoroughbreds now stabled at the Windsor Jockey Club track and at Kenilworth will not be shipped back to the blue grass region until the conclusion of racing in the Windsor sector. The majority of owners operating at the Devonshire meeting last week have remained at the track for the meetings to follow in the vicinity. The feature of the opening day at Kenilworth is the Long Branch Handicap at a mile and a sixteenth with ,000 added for three-year-olds and over. The quantity and quality of handicap material on the ground at the three Windsor courses ought to insure a fine field for that race, with many experienced riders on the ground to accept mounts. Indications point to the second Kenilworth meeting being much more successful in every regard then the first meeting at that track.
