BOWIE HANDICAP WEIGHTS Allotments for 0,000 Added Long Distance Feature to Be Run at Pimlico Nov. 11. BALTIMORE, Md., Nov. G. Among the historic stakes to be decided at the Pimlico autumn meeting, now in progress, is the Bowie, named in honor of a former president of the Maryland Jockey Club, and "sportsman of note," in the 70s and 80s, the late governor of Maryland, Oden Bowie. Originally a four-mile heat event, numbering among its winners T. W. Doswells Bush-wacker and William Jennings Glenmore, each of which had to go- three heats, or I twelve miles in all, to clinch the victory, the distance is now reduced to one mile and a half, with 0,000 added, of which ,000 to the second, ,000 to the third and 00 to the fourth. The Bowie is a handicap for three-year-olds and over, and is set for Tuesday, November 11. There is no more important feature in the racing world, and it will undoubtedly attract a large field of the best horses in training. The list of winners since, and including 1909, when the stake was revived at Pimlico. comprises such well-known performers as Fitz Herbert, Everett, Zeus, Mission, Buskin, Flying Fairy, Stromboli, Short Grass, Westy Hogan, George Smith, Royce Rools, Mad Hatter, Boniface, Captain Alcock and My Dear, truly a formidable array of equine giants. From 1909 to 1913, inclusive, the distance was two miles ; in 1914 and 1915, it was one mile and three-quarters, after which the present route was established. In George Smiths year Omar Khayyam was second, and that wonderful campaigner, Exterminator, third, and it is curious to note that Superstition, or "Old Supe," finished second twice, in 1909 and 1910, to Fitz Herbert and Everett; in 1911 and 1912 Sotemia was second both times to Zeus and Mission, and in 1917 and 1918 Omar Khayyam was placed similarly to Westy Hogan and Continued on sixtcentli page. j 5 ! . 1 - . , ! 1 BOWIE HANDICAP WEIGHTS Continued from first page.
