1 ALL STALLS NOW OCCUPIED ♦ Stable Accommodations at Beulah Park at a Premium. » Seven Hares, With Tnaugnral Handicap as , Feature, Planned for Opening Program on Saturday. » COLUMBUS, Ohio, April 12.— General Manager Harry D. Shepard of the Beulah Park Jockey Club, announced today that every available stall at the Grove City track was occupied, while several stables were forced l to find accommodations outside the grounds. Thus it is assumed that limited fields will go to the post in the majority of the races, compelling Racing Secretary W. R. Norvell 1 to maintain a "preferred list" instead of - writing "extra races" to fill out his daily program, as has been the case at previous I meetings. Practically all the stables from I the distant winter centers, Tijuana and New Orleans detrained over the week end. The Xew Orleans special brought lir thoroughbreds, comprising the stables of a number of owners. Pompano and Tijuana also furnished their quota of representatives. Clarence Davison, Harold Good and H. C. Hunters horses came in the Baja California shipment. There will be seven races on the program for decision on the opening day, Saturday, April 16, which will be featured by the Inaugural Handicap. Every prominent stable on the grounds will have a representative in the initial attraction, including nominations from the stables of J. H. McMillan, G. F. Jenkins, V. Cloud, E. W. Moore, W. D. Bernhardt, J. Hayes and others. A recapitulation of the early registrations filed with Racing Secretary W. R. Norvell would suggest a field of eight or ten starters in the race. Clarence Davison reported on his arrival that his brother-in-law B. Creech, one of the successful owners at Tijuana, who seldom missed a Beulah Park meeting, has shipped his horses to Aurora. Davison brought Follow Me and Sun Brae back from the Baja, California track. H. flood had four horses in his care and H. C. Hunter brought four. Twenty-eight different owners were represented in the Xew Orleans consignment, including, among others, the following : J. H. McDonald, W. H. Brown, C. O. Smith, William Manders, J. S. Hoskins, J. Bird, Vern Cloud, Abe Jessop, Danny Bauers, Andy Winters, Vic Gallo, Dan Freeman, C. A. Cook, W. L. Elpass, C. H. Morrison, W. L. Metzgar, J. F. Patterson, T. H. Bernhardt, J. F. Arthurs, Tommy Sullivan, J. MeCraw, Charlie Wilson, W. R. Seamster, Tom Craven, J. .Miles and T. Modeland. Tom Craven will in all probability name Billiken in the Inaugural Handicap Saturday, as his recent races at Jefferson Park would indicate the horse is at the height of his form. Charlie Wilson, official timer at Beulah Park, Maple Heights and Brooklyn, arrived in Columbus after his horses had been unloaded at Beulah Park. P. J. Nicholson, who officiated as judge at the Tulsa and other Oklahoma meetings before the annual meetings were abandoned, is in receipt of word that the proposed Tulsa meeting has been postponed to May 12. Continued on eighth page. ALL STALLS NOW OCCUPIED Continued from first page Brownie Held, who was dispelled from the turf with Carl Drake, jockeys Charlie Eames, Claude Hunt, the late Arthur Franklin and others a few years ago by the late Fred W. Gerhardy for alleged sharp practice, is again in the good graces of the turf. He has been assigning the stalls at Beulah Park and will act as assistant to W. R. Norvell, racing secretary. Jack Hayes reported from New Orleans with nine horses, the largest consignment in his charge in some years. W. A. Heddle, who is training superior | mudder Lucent, consistent winner at Aurora last fall, came in from the Illinois track with five horses. He reports that Aurora is surfeited with racing material, but found comfortable accommodations here. Quite a few riders are already on the scene awaiting the opening Saturday, have submitted their applications for license to the licence committee. Officials of the Beulah Park club intimated that riders applying will be subjected to a rigid examination and only those in good standing everywhere will be permitted to ride. It has been proposed also by a member that jockeys agents be licensed. Only first and second calls will be permitted under the arrangement and will occasion a revocation of the privilege for soliciting at the entry box before the secretary closes the entries. ♦
