PLENTY HORSES FOR RENO Expect Goodly Number of Thoroughbreds for Nevada Racing, Which Begins on July 1 RENO, Nev., June 15. With more than 170 thoroughbreds on the ground and with heavy shipments to come within the next two weeks from Omaha and Calgary and scattering shipments from California and other western breeding establishments, it is now definitely established that the Reno meeting, which opens July 1 for thirty or more days, will have a plentiful supply of horses. "As a matter of fact, the influx of horses Is giving us much concern," said J. P. Atkin today. It is under his direction that the meeting will be given. The total stabling at the local track will care for not more than 350 runners and Atkin is now figuring on stabling the overflow in two big tents, which have been ordered. E. E. Buchanan, a well-known horseman, who races a useful band at Tijuana each winter, arrived today from Tulsa, Okla., with fourteen head. He brought Buck Garret, Wynnewood, Kripp, Cow Horse, Ask John, Sea Wrack, Reno Lady, Bill Hope, Brown Dick, General Fryer, Gypsy Bell, War Castle, Smiling Princess and Au Revoir. Another car arriving from Tulsa today contained fifteen thoroughbreds, the property of various owners, as follows: Mrs. W. M. Harrington, Krekzunas and Baggage King; H. Warner, Smart Horse; C. Fisher, Dan E. Stewart, Acquitted and Roisterer; Charles Buell, Swift Lady, Amackasin and Gold Colonist; E. Slavin, Lord Vargrave, Dorothy Pop, Miss Leighton, Nettie Cole and Ella Wood; Joe Rice, Mr. Ruby. The daily program for the Reno meeting will comprise seven or more races. The meeting is to be given in conjunction with Nevadas Transcontinental Highways Exposition, a project which opens June 25 and continues to August 1, and which celebrates the completion of a paved highway linking Reno up with the East and West. Judge Lee J. Rose, who is one of the Tijuana Jockey Clubs stewards, will preside at the Reno meeting. Judge George W. Schilling will serve as racing secretary and James Donovan will be the starter.
