New York Notes BELMONT PARK, Elmont, L. I., N. Y., June 7. Before the nine steeplechase riders were permitted to don colors for the first chase event of the meeting, they passed a medical examination by Dr. John J. P. Kilgal-len, the head track physician. All jockeys must submit to this routine check before they are permitted to ride on the Metropolitan circuit. Stake nomination blanks for the Garden State Park meeting were distributed among horsemen here today. Dave Woods, who is stationed at Fort Riley. Kas., in letters, hopes to have a furlough by the time the Preakness and Belmont Stakes are contested. Woods, who did the publicity work for the Maryland Jockey Club, is assigned to the public relations department at Fort Riley. The lawn in front of the clubhouse and turf and field enclosure will be covered by concrete paving as soon as that commodity is available, according to track superintendent Boyle.

Cameron, who conditions the Mrs. John Hertz string, registered six head here yesterday.
