AWAIT EPINARDS ARRIVAL Maryland Racegoers Eager to See French Star in Action Sure Starter in Laurel Stakes. LAUREL, Md., Oct 15. Expectantly Laurel is awaiting the arrival tomorrow morning of Epinard to run in tho Laurel Stakes, the first of his two engagements here. The Laurel is an allowance race at a mile, with 0,000 added. It will be run Saturday. Four stalls in the J. K. L. Ross barn have been set aside for the convenience of the Epinard party. The Laurel was inaugurated in 1914 and has been run annually since that year. Good horses have won it as a rule, but it never attracted the attention that is accorded it now as a result of the announced intention of Pierre Wertheimer to send his four-year-old star here for the eleventh renewal. From present indications there will be at least nine or ten to compete with the French ace. R. J. Walden has promised that Rustic, a recent winner here, will compete with the foreigner. Wise Counsellor was shipped from Kentucky for the race. Sun: Flag worked a milo this morning in preparation for the contest Nicholas galloped a mile for the same purpose. Nicholas is a stablemate of Sarazen, most recent conqueror of Epinard. They belong to the Fair Stable of Mrs. W. K. Vanderbilt III. James Rowe is pointing Initiate and Arcady to fly the Whitney colors in the race. Single Foot turned a mile nicely this morning and trainer Harry Rites believes that J. E. Griffiths two-year-old son of Wrack Virginia L. will be a hard horse to beat Saturday. Big Blaze and Whetstone are being conditioned to carry the silks of S. D. Riddle. Whetstones recent races have been good.
