BOWIE TURF NOTES ? I Trainer Elmer Trueman reported that Ral I Parrs good sprinter Star Porter pulled up j sore after his last race and that the racer I j would be on the shelf for some time. Acau-I taw, another member of the stable, is af-j flicted with seasmoid trouble and will be given a letup. E. C. Grogan, owner of Wise Count and I Grace Blotter, has turned the pair over to Elmer Trueman to train. Wise Count, however, will be an absentee from racing due to minor ailments. "Pud" McDaniel, who holds the contract on the 100-pound apprentice D. Sorenson, has turned the lad over to Jennings Small-wood. Secretary McLennan announced that he was forced to declare off the Rowe Memorial Handicap that was to be the stellar attraction at Bowie on Saturday. This came about after Mr. McLennan canvassed the horsemen at Prince Georges Park and Jamaica in an effort to secure suitable timber for this important event which was to have carried a purse of ,500. McLennan attributes the lack of entries to the cough- ing epidemic that swept through most of the big stables at Havre de Grace. Jockey Johnny Gilbert leading rider at the present meeting and one of the best riders at Bowie, was forced to cancel his mounts on Tuesday. Gilbert received word from Pittsburgh, Kansas, that his oldest brother died, and he left for that point immediately.
