CONTESTS FOR TEXAS HORSES - Dallas Pair Park Book Replete With - Races for Horses Owned by Residents of State. j - DALLAS, Texas, April 16 With the opening of the twenty-one days spring meeting little more than a week off, Fair Park will not lack for local or Texas-owned stables. As in the previous two meetings, Fair Park has been well represented with Texas stables and most of the horsemen on the grounds with applications filed with general manager Julius G. Reeder, reside in this state. Among the more prominent stables local-I ly or Texas-owned who plan a campaign at Fair Park, are the stables of C. Morris and Sons, E. R. Fain, R. C. Rumage, C. Fishburn, Mrs. Edward Haughton, G. F. Jenkins, George Keeton, Heard and Heard, who race as the H. and H. Stock Farm; Farris and Davis Huisache Stable, B. and G. H. Coyles Cisco Stable; R. Pollard, R. L. James, E. B. Shipp, W. C. Stroube, J. H. Tate, J. B. Theall, E. Tiller, N. Tiller, F. Ianni, R. N. Vestal, Winfree Bros, and W. D. Smith., Other Texans who are either quartered here or at Arlington Downs, whose applications have been accepted are: M. Allen, H. A. Allen, B. Manziel, Dr. Wm. Bloss, D. Christian, T. Deahl, E. Drillon, Mrs. E. Davis, H. R. Finley, L. M. Lester, L. P. Din-ion, H. TJrbank, William Long, Dudley Farris, Mrs. R. M. Christian, W. R. Jarvis, Ed Woody, L. R. Joyce, Finia Zinn, C. C. Juhan, J.

Overby, C. R. Parker, T. J. Elrod, Mrs. K. Russell, F. J. Estes, R. Scoville, and many others. With such an array of Texas talent to draw from, the Fair Park management should have little difficulty in filling races for Texas-owned horses. Many of these races are scheduled for the second week of the meeting and the cheaper grade of horses quartered here owned,, or are Texas-bred will be eligible for these special events, which will probably draw limit fields over the George course, which is 165 feet short of five furlongs. Much attention is being given the planting of flowers and shrubbery by Reeder as other details have already been completed by the racing committee. The destruction of the old press box was also being supervised by Reeder Tuesday morning and its new location will be on top of the clubhouse. The new quarters for the pressmen are due to be completed Wednesday afternoon.
