Y., June 18.— Entry blanks for the nine stakes which will stud the Empire City Racing Associations meeting at Jamaica July 16 to August 4 were distributed among horsemen today.

The Comely will have an added value of 0,000 — is intended to attract the best of the fillies and mares at the mile and a sixteenth distance. The nine stakes will total 80,000 in added monies — the most ambiticus offering in the long history of the association.
