AURORA STABLES FILLING Contingent from Hawthorne Now On the Ground Billy Myer Pleased With Track. All the stables at the new racing plant of the Fox Valley Business Mens Racing Association at Auroras beautiful Fair Grounds are rapidly filling with thoroughbreds that will race during the twenty-five days race meeting which opens next Saturday. Sanola, the three-year-old filly, which won nine out of twelve races at Hawthorne ; The Runt, mud champion, which won seven starts at Hawthorne ; Rockland Princess, star two-year-old filly, and many other good horses are ready to run at Aurora. Billy Myer, track superintendent, took over his duties this week, following the closing of the Hawthorne meeting. "This Aurora track " he says, "is one of the fastest I ever worked on. Even the west end, which was made two weeks ago when the course was enlarged to a mile track, is in perfect condition. It liis a wonderful cushion." For motorists who plan to drive to the new racing plant, Roosevelt road is recommended. This is paved all the way to Bata-via, just three miles from the Fair Grounds, where motorists can easily pick out the road to the south that goes through Mooseheart. For those who want to dr.ive out to the city of Aurora for luncheon before going to the races, Ogden avenue is paved all the way. The special trains on the Burlington, direct to the track, will leave the new Union Station at 12:15 and 12:45.
