1 ARLINGTON DOWNS NOTES ? - Post time for the opening race Saturday, Derby Day, will be 2:00 p. m., instead of 2:15 p. m., it was announced Tuesday afternoon by resident manager Trav Daniel. The stewards at Arlington Downs restored to good standing the stable of I. T. Houston, which was suspended for harbor-i ing a suspended trainer. The new trainer of the stable will be G. Felkner, who was also before the stewards and agreed to take full responsibility for the running of the horses. Horsemen have been requested to arrange early for the employment of riders for Saturdays races, so that they can be reported to the entry clerk on Friday morning at the time of making the entry. The management intends to print 25,800 programs and as this is quite a task for any printing house, the run on the programs will be started Friday night No scratches will appear on the programs Saturday, but will be announced from the loudspeaker. E. E. Russell vanned the Apache Stable to Alamo Downs. Russell plans on giving the horses a short rest before the opening of the San Antonio season. Jockey Albert Beck, former contract rider for the Three Ds and now free lancing, is undecided whether to go to San Antonio or remain in Dallas. Beck who is a consistently clever reinsman is down to 108 and has scored two long shot victories during the current Arlington Downs meeting booting the Cactus Stables Slavonia and Earth Shaker- home. Trav Daniel, leaving nothing to chance and clinging to his belief that the celebrated Waggoner weather will be in evidence will have an augmented crew of attaches, on hand bright and early to handle the incoming throng. "There will be plenty of help Saturday, nnd none of the 40,000 we confidently expect to be on hand for the running of our 5,000 Texas Derby will have to wait for a single thing," said Daniel whose expert direction of the current meeting at Arlington Downs has entrenched him more firmly with the racing public as. a man who knows the correct tempo of the turf going public. . Albert Dunne stopped off for todays racing en route to Louisville, where he will take up several horses. C. Fisher is vanning three horses to San Antonio for the Alamo Downs meeting. Paul Waggoner is sending several of the Three Ds Stock Farm horses to Alamo Downs in charge pf Jack Hayes. William Wallace will take the main division to Churchill Downs. Jockey L. Haas, who stopped off here en route to Churchill Downs, received word from John Marsch, his contract employer, to report to Roscoe Goose, who has the Marsch horses at Louisville.
