» f BLUE BONNETS TURF NOTES? + MONTREAL, Que., June 20. Secretary Angevine announced that the Montreal Jockey Club had set aside Thursday as Ladies Day, which means that the fair sex will be the guests of the club on that occasion. Ladies Days have proven very-popular here and a record crowd will likely turn out at Blue Donnets that day to witness the racing. Mortimer Mahoney, manager of the mutuel department at the big Cumberland Fair, received word that the feature race at the fall meeting at this place would be the Keating Memorial, for three-year-olds and upward, to which a purse of ,000 would be added. The distance will be at a mile or over. J. A. Parsons, who is adding to his stable at every meeting, acquired the useful horse Hijo yesterday through the claiming route when he secured the horse for ,2"0. T. J. Ileaiey announced before leaving to-nigh, t.at he would be back to Blue Bonnets on Saturday next for the closing day of the meeting. Several of the horses in the Wilson-Salmon stable that were shipped to Montreal to participate in the racing here will be returned to Belmont Park at the close of the meeting. They will be shipped in the car that cariies the Frank Bastone horses back to the States. The two-year-old Peter Snow, in the stable of W. J. Salmon, died today as a result of a strangulated intestine. The stewards of the Montreal Jockey Club passed a ruling yesterday, which limits the fields at Blue Bonnets to twelve. This rule goes into effect on Thursday. After consulting with Mortimer Mahoney, secretary Angevine announced that in future mutuel tickets would be sold on every starter in a race, which means that the fields will be done away with. This looks like a good move, and it is one that will likely be adopted by the different clubs racing under the Canadian Pacing Associations. Joseph McLennan leaves for Hamilton at the conclusion of the racing Friday. His son Charles will remain over and will receive entries at Blue Bonnets on Saturday for the opening days racing at Hamilton. The horse Kinburn has been retired to the stud, and is standing at the Dahpne Beaman Stock Farm on the Cote de Liesse Boad back of Blue Bonnets. Jockey Sauer, none the worse for his mishap yesterday when Leda fell with him during the running of the sixth race, was up and about galloping this morning. Sauer will be seen with the colors up tomorrow. James Hcaley wired secre*ary McLennan that he was shipping to Blue Bonnets the good three-year-t Id Broom Whisk, which races for F. Ambrose Clark. Broom Whisk is coming to Montreal to fill his engagement in the ,000 added Windsor Hotel Cup, the feature race for the closing days program of the Montreal Jockey Clubs meeting. It is possible that young Mr. Bostwick, who rode Broom Whisk when he finished fourth in the Belmont Stakes, will come up to ride him. F. Seagram, son of Edward Seagram, was a visitor at Blue Bonnets today. He stopped over for the afternoons sport preparatory to sailing for England. Frank Bastone left for New York last night, but will return on Saturday to see Leonard B. race in the Windsor Hotel Cup. His mission to the States is to engage a first-class Jockey to ride Leonard B., as Schaefors services will not be available.
