AQUEDUCT TURF NOTES NEW YORK, N. Y., Sept. 16. Harry Unna has purchased Sunspero and Spic and Span for his employer, I. B. Humphrey. The E. B. McLean stable claimed Gad from "v7. J. Both for ,000 ana was shipped to Havre de Grace with the remainder of the establishment. From the same race F. J. Buchanan claimed Maddenstown from A. J. Koivula for ?4.250. Although there was general satisfaction at the moving up to 1 oclock as the closing time for entries at Belmont Park, Aqueduct has returned to the antiquated 2 oclock idea and in consequence there is dissatisfaction. Just why this stubborn stand is taken is hard to understand. It has been shown that the earlier closing is more advantageous to the track and immensely more popular with the racing patrons, but 2 oclock is the rule for Aqueduct and it will doubtless remain 2 oclock.
