DEVONSHIRE PARK OPENING Final Meeting of Year in Windsor District Begins Today Under Favorable Auspices. WINDSOR, Ont, Aug. 26. Everything is in readiness for -Saturdays opening of beautiful Devonshire Park. This will be the final seven-day meeting of the year for the Border City. The forthcoming meeting comes on with an outlook decidedly propitious and the management is sanguine that the best racing witnessed in Windsor this year will take place. With the exception of the stables of C. E. Davison, P. T. Catalano, I. W. Kidd and G. Keeton, all that took part in the previous Windsor meetings have remained over to take part in the session. Several carloads of thoroughbreds were unloaded Friday morning, having been shipped from the recently concluded Niagara Falls meeting. There will be the stables of J. Badame, headed by the good handicap performer Khorasan, C. Smythe, W. G. Campbell and Dave Garrity. Paul Miles, who at one time served as a judge at Devonshire wired for stalls for the string he is campaigning at Bainbridge Park. It is reported that the extensive Pasadena Stable, which is quartered at Devonshire, will depart for California at the conclusion of the meeting. John P. Turne-, racing secretary at Dev-vonshire will depart Saturday night for Marlboro, Md., to join the official family at the Southern Maryland Fair Association meeting. Eugene Bury was an arrival from Thistle Down Park and will serve as racing secretary in Mr. Turners absence. Large and well balanced fields are named to face the starter in six of the seven races. The lone exception is the feature offering, a condition race styled the Kaye Don. This is at one mile and a sixteenth, fashioned exclusively for thoroughbreds foaled in Canada. The Thorncliffe Stable is represented by Refiner and Shorelint and holds a strong hand, while the Hastings Stables Star Crest, winner of his last start at Ken-ilworth. is found well suited by the weight arrangement, having been assigned the impost of 106 pounds. Aymohd, which will carry the hopes of Rylahd H. News establishment, will not lack for supporters. The locally owned Pat Gaiety and Lindsay complete the field. The daily double style of wagering and the "one two" wager will again be in vogue. The first race will be called to the post at 2:30 p. m. each day, central standard time. a
