Scholl is a newcomer to racing and hopes to make Princella the nucleus of a large stable. Jockey C. McTague was suddenly stricken with pneumonia on Wednesday afternoon and hurried to a Cleveland hospital. The popular young rider was a favorite among Bainbridge racegoers and all are anuxious for his early and complete recovery. Sixty-tnree riders are now registered at the Geauga County course, with the recent arrival of M. Knight from Chicago. With more than 650 horses on the grounds, the majority of the riding colony expect to be kept busy. Eddie Seremba arrived from Chicago and reports that his four-year-old filly Box Office is progressing well after a winter on the farm and that he expects to pick her up soon and return her to training. After the recent torrential rainfall Bian-bridge Park has dried out amazingly. Racing secretary Richard A. Leigh says there still is room in the Bainbridge stalls for any owners who wish to ship to Ohio. Ladies day will be an added attraction at Bainbridge. Tuesdays and Fridays have been set aside .for the fair sex. when they may enter the course without paying any admission or tax fee whatsoever. Pony races will be run off on those afternoons, over an eighth of a mile. These ponies are to be ridden by boys fourteen years old and younger.
