THE FUTURITY COURSE Curious Cleveland O The Futurity Course at Coney Island is 56 23 yards short of three quarter miles and practically a straightaway though it has a slight bend This makes the course 1253 13 yards or 3760 feet long In time allowance according to Coney Island figures the 170 yards should be figured as equal to about 3 316 seconds The record over it is Kingstons Kingston 1 08 That record however was rather falsely made The horse beat the timing flag that day and really ran in about 108 He had 139 pounds up and it is the sparkling performance of America
