I HAMILTON SECOND MEET-1 ING BEGINS TODAY - ...4 HAMILTON, Ont., Aug. 1. The Hamilton Jockey Club will stage its second 1933 meeting tomorrow afternoon under favorable auspices. While the fields are of good size, guaranteeing keen sport, they are not as large as has been the case in the past and this is accounted for by reason of the change in rules which abandons the preferred list. This move has been made at various of the other tracks throughout the continent and secretary Jack Campbell reports it has been a beneficial change. Owners must now have serious intention of starting their charges before entering and will not be permitted to scratch without permission of the stewards or track veterinarian and for good and sufficient reason. Various newcomers to Canadian racing are noted among the stables on hand for this meeting and most notable of these is a division of the C. V. Whitney stable, numbering fourteen head. This will be the first occasion this year that the famous Eton blue and brown silks have been shown in Canada and the stable is well represented on the inaugural program with entries in each of the first five races.
