Condition Books for First Ten Days of Pascoag Park Meet Out BURRILLVILLE, R. I., June 1.— Condi- I tion books for the first ten days of racing at Pascoag Park, which opens a 42 -day I meeting June 11, are being distributed to horsemen by racing secretary Gordon Mor- I row. The latter is now serving as clerk of the scales at Narragansett while preparing i for the opening of Pascoag. The minimum purse at Pascoag has been set at 00, with four races of that value scheduled for each day, three at 00 and one at 00. There are close to 275 horses stabled here now and with the close of Narragansett many more will be moved to the half-mile I track. Pascoag horses have been doing their share of winning at Gansett. Although officials for the meeting have not been announced, since they must first be approved by the State Racing Administration, it is generally understood that with possibly one exception all those who served j last season will be back. While preparing for this season at his present site, B. A. Dario, treasurer and general manager of Pascoag, is laying plans for the erection of a new track after the war. At an auction at the now closed Agawam Park near Springfield, Mass., he recently purchased 6,000 grandstand seats for use at the new track.
