1 ALAMO DOWNS TURF NOTES 4 H. McCloud has severed his connections with the horses owned by Dr. H. Melton and H. R. Smith and will devote all of his time to training The Pelican, Home Work, Sassenach and Colonel Jr., which he recently took over for E. Sigman. The veteran L. Jones was an arrival from Arlington Downs and will ride free lance. Another jockey to put in an appearance was J. Hernandez, who arrived from Dallas. Hernandez will ride for N. Burkhart, who is training the horses of Clayton Morris and Son. The colors of Miss Mary Russell, daughter of the president of Alamo Downs, were seen for the first time Thursday, when My Wish and Captain Danger accepted engagements. Other horses in the stable, which are trained by J. W. Potter, are Royal Pride, Chromium, Texas Ann, Crown Princess and Warrior Slave. Pending the arrival of H. P. Conkling, who is presiding in Maryland, the Texas Racing Commission agreed on Cheatham Parke, of Austin, to act as the third steward until judge Conklings arrival on the 29th. J. H. Patterson, field manager for the Thoroughbred Horsemens Association, is here representing the horsemen. Patterson expects to leave Saturday for Louisville. T. J. Carroll will be the field representative for the association after Pattersons departure and will work between here and Dallas during the meetings.
