QUEENS COUNTY HANDICAP Feature of Opening Program at Aqueduct Monday Xing Saxon -Top Weight With 126. NEW YORK, N. Y June 6 For the opening of the Queens County Jockey Club at, Aqueduct Monday an excellent card has been prepared by J. B. Campbell with the Queens County Handicap, at a mile, as the bright and particular feature of the afternoon. This carries an added money "value of ,000 and with eight named to start, it will reach ,275. The top weight goes to C. H. "Pat" Kne-belkamps King Saxon, winner of the same running last year. The son of Saxon is required to shoulder 126 pounds and on all he has shown in his preparation, while he has not come to the fame that was his at the same time last year, he is sure to have a big following. Of the eight named, "Bud" Stotler has three he will saddle for Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt, and they are a worthy trio. One is Good Harvest, winner of the Metropolitan Handicap, the other two Good Gamble and Gallant Mac. The distance is much to the liking of each of these, and they are sure to cut an important figure in the running. Clang, the crack sprinter that races for John F. Clark, is well under 110 pounds, and the other three of the field are of the gentle sex. Recent improvements that have been made in the accommodations at the old course will be greatly appreciated by the public and, taking a line thi-ough the success that attended the sport at both Jamaica and Belmont Parks, indications are that the Queens County Jockey Club will have one of its most prosperous seasons.
