KENILWORTH PARK RACING First Meeting at Windsor Track From June 27 to July 4, Second Period From July 25 to Aug. 1. DETROIT, Mich., June 11.— The Kenil-worth Jockey Club starts the racing season in the Detroit-Windsor area the week extending from Saturday, June 27, to Saturday, July 4, inclusive. Seven events will be decided daily during the customary seven-day period. The second meeting at the same track will extend from July 25 to August 1. The stake and purse distribution will be practically the same as last season, providing an outlay of about 15,000 for the two meetings. The handicaps will range in value from ,200 to ,000, and the purse events ,000 and upwards. There will be no dearth of racing material during the two weeks sport, secretary Norvell declaring that more than 350 of the horses performing at Thorncliffe, Woodbine and Long Branch in Toronto the last few weeks will be shipped to Windsor. The class of thoroughbreds has been exceptionally good on the Canadian circuits this season, and the best of those seen in action on the Toronto courses will be found in the races at Windsor by reason of the Kenil-worth Jockey Clubs liberal purse distribution. Several carloads of horses will be shipped to Windsor from Washington Park and Kentucky as usual, which will help to make the annual racing scene at Kenilworth most attractive. It is expected that the opening feature will be the Kenilworth Handicap, over the mile and seventy yards route, and this should provide an excellent field of handicap performers to contest for a rich purse. The inaugural week starts on Saturday and ends on Saturday, and including Dominion Day and Fourth of July, the indications point to large attendances at the meeting. «
