FRANK BRUEN IN CHICAGO Says Over 500 Horses Already Stabled at Oriental Park With More Expected. Frank Bruen, general manager of the Oriental Park race track in Havana, Cuba, arrived in Chicago Thursday morning from Lexington. Mr. Bruen is here to meet H. D. Brown, who has again taken over the control of the Cuban track and has guaranteed the payment of purses to the horsemen. "The outlook for a successful meeting in Cuba during the coming winter is indeed bright," said Mr. Bruen. "There are already over 500 horses at Oriental Park, with about 200 more expected from Kentucky and Maryland at the conclusion of the Lexington and Bowie meetings. "With the entire plant thoroughly gone over and the necessary improvements completed, we see no reason why the Avinter meeting of 1924 and 1925 should not be the best in the history of the sport on the Island." Mr. Bruen leaves here tonight for Havana.
