Racing at Woodbine Park and upon the Canadian Racing Association circuit will come to a close tomorrow afternoon with the offering of a stellar program that is in keeping with the high standard always maintained by the Ontario Jockey Club. There are three major stakes upon the card. Principal of the three in point of valuation is the Hendrie Steeplechase Handicap. It is a race at three miles and carries an added value of 0,000. Death has removed from activity, El Kantara, Avhich would have been favorite for the race. The good son of Voter met his end at Woodbine Saturday in a jumping race. With him out of the way favoritism probably still will rest upon the Greentree Stable owner of the ill-fated El Kantara. Damask saved the day for the establishment in the race in which El K-an-; tara suffered fatal injury. He will be the favorite to repeat although the son of All Gold be asked to carry 155 pounds over the trying three miles in competition with the best that the division can muster. The Ontario Jockey Club and the Durham Cup are the other fixtures to be renewed on the getaway day. Each has an added value of ,500. Both are notable in racing records as long distance features. The Jockey Club Cup is at two miles and a quarter. The other fixture, a Canadian bred race is at a mile and three quarters. Such racing always held a thrill not found in sprinting contests. The Jockey Club Cup has brought out a field of only five but they are evenly matched and the adjustment of weights points to a close contest despite the great distance the horses will be asked to travel. Following are those named overnight for the race : King Solomons Seal, Fredericktown, Joaquina Horologe and Poltova. The Canadian bred race filled better. In it eleven will oppose the Canadian three-year-? old champion Vrana, which has been running away from her opponents at all distances and with big weight up.
