of the opening of the racing season at the local track there were not as many horses housed here as are now occupying the stables at Churchill Downs and Douglas Park ParkMany Many too are stars of the first water including not only the most promising youngsters but the kings and queens of the turf of an older age There was never a season whcn so many valuable and promising twoyearolds were trained here as is the case this spring Siime of the stables have young ¬ sters whose value runs far into the thousands and there are iu fact horses at both the local tracks thai money cannot buy The
