MORE KENTUCKY MEETINGS Dates for Blue Grass and Colored Fairs Dade Park May Bace From Sept. 3 to Sept. 17. LEXINGTON, Ky., June 22. William Don-das, passing through Lexington today, en route from Latonia to Raceland, arranged the preliminaries for the racing department of the Lexington Colored Fair, August 8 to 13, and the Blue Grass Fair, August 22 to 2G, and stated that the books for these two meetings will be published shortly. The prospective dates for the meeting at Dade Park are September 3 to 17. The Race-land meeting, which opens July 9, will close August 6, so that will give those at Raceland intending to race at Dade Park two weeks of occupation at Lexington in between, if they desire to keep their horses racing. Dondas has ordered several of his men to be on hand at Raceland tomorrow to get everything in his department in shipshape for the meeting. Superintendent James M. Forsythe is working a large force of laborers at Raceland, getting the grounds, track roads, railway side tracks and parking space in improved condition after the winter. There now are forty-five horses on the grounds, and every stall is under reservation with numerous applicants for any space that may be released later on. The indications are that this will be the greatest meeting ever staged at Raceland.
