POPULAR BOWIE TRACK OPENS Bowie Inaugural Handicap First Days Attraction — Tred Avon Top Weight. BOWIE, Md., May 17.— The Southern Maryland Agricultural Associations eleven-day meeting at Bowie swings into operation tomorrow with as good a week-day program as has been offered this spring in Maryland. The track in Prince Georges County, which through the good offices of Joseph B. Boyle of Baltimore, its general manager, and Thomas Kirby Lynch, its assistant manager and treasurer, has come to be known as "the track with a smile," has been considerably improved since last fall, and new comforts and conveniences have been installed for its patrons. Heading the opening day program will be the eleventh running of the Bowie Inaugural. This year the Inaugural will be a mile and seventy yards race instead of a six furlongs dash as it has been in past years. Its value has been reduced from ,000 to ,000 as part of the Bowie economy program, but the slash has by no means reduced the class of the starting field. As a matter of fact, this years field is better than last years. Heading the list of overnight eligibles for the Inaugural is Tred Avon, the five-year-old daughter of Sir Greysteel — La Muiron, which is owned by Sylvester W. Labrot, master of Holly Beach Farm in Anne Arundel County. The mare is the high weight of the party, with 126 pounds. Labrots Spring-steel and Open Hearth are entered as her running mates. Other horses named for the opening day feature are Dr. J. Fred Adams Rehoboth; Richard Pendings rejuvenated Ned O.; W. W. Vaughans Canron; N. E. Stantons Action; Howe Stables Scotch Gold; Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitneys Clotho, and Frank Hayes Cantoria. The latter, a three-year-old, is regarded as a doubtful starter inasmuch as he appears to be better placed in the fourth, a six furlongs dash for which he also has been named. The fourth event is to be the days secondary feature. It is named the Old Virginia and has drawn seven fleet three-year-olds. •
