At the close of the meetings at Montreal and Ham jltou Saturday, the majority of the horses ai thus, Tacks will come to Windsor. The track is in goixl c.indition and if there is no more rain, will be fast for the opening day. die thing striking in a trip through the stables is the fact that the percentage of horses ready to lace is greater than ever before noticed. There is very little deadwood. Owners have found that it is l hopeless task to carry a lot of horses Hirough the couniry ami not get I hem out in teapoaae to the bugle, so they are bringing only those in condition lor immediate racing. "I treed it last year and found that it pays much better," remarked one of Ihe trainers. "1 remcinbi r when I came up here from the south and had Hie bills to pay on fifteen head. I gm-ss two or three of them raced and the others did their share of eating. When the tall came and I was ready to go back I bad lo hold private conversation with a few of my friends. Now I come with four or five that are here to race, and they will do their shaie toward paying their own way. 1 don"t have to give up all 1 make for expenses.""
