Three Quarter Horse Stakes Carded at Centennial Park IJTTLETON, Colo., June 13.— In addition to the 14 stakes and features to be run during the meeting here beginning June 30, Centennial Park will also feature three Quarter Horse Stake events which will certainly lay claim to making Colorado the "Capitol of the Quarter Horse World." The ,500 added Rocky Mountain Quarter Horse Fair Associations World Championship Dash will be held Friday, August 31. This event for three-year-olds and upward already has a nomination list of 22 of the nations top "short" horses. It will be contested over the full 440-yard distance. The second is the~R. M. Q. H. F. A.s Horse Derby. This, like the Championship Dash, carries an added value of ,500. It is limited to three-year-old colts, however, and will be run at 330 yards. The most lucrative of the three top Quarter Horse stakes, however, will be the ,000 added R. M. Q. H. F. A.s Futurity. The latter will be held Monday, Labor Day, September 3, and will be the companion feature to the Rocky Mountain Handicap-lor thoroughbreds.
