LIVINGSTON STABLE INVITED TO WINDSOR. Jockey Club Anxious to Have Chicago Horse Owner to Compete for Stakes. Detroit, Mich., March 27. — Jefferson Livingston, than whom there is no more ardent supporter of thoroughbred racing on this side of the Atlantic-, is extended an invitation to come to Windsor this slimmer with the most formidable stable he can collect and help to cut up the IUkt.iI stake-fixtures and over-night purses that will be offered by the- Windsor Jockey Club. For one reason or another the wealthy turfman has consistently elected to pass up Haltering inducements acros* the river from this city despite the fact that he rarely failed to nominate one or more candidates from his stable for the Frontier or one of the other events designed to interest the owners of established turf stars. Something either turned up to prevent his shipping to Windsor or stake engagements elsewhere weeuld not premit him to preliminary ar-range:nc-:its with the plant operated by Messrs. Ilendrie and Parmer at the appointed time. Always Glad to See Him. Livingstons participation under the auspices of any club is the signal for feeling of satisfaction on" the part of the promoters. He is one of those fellows who is in racing purely for the sport Jo-can get out of it and. like Harry Payne- Whitney. Richard Carman. August Belmont and R. J. Mackenzie, elevates the pastime wherever he- goes. Op, rating an expensive stable with varied success ; doesnt make any difference to men of Livingstons 1 stamp. At the same- time, however, it is the desire of anybody with rich, red blood in his veins to win i and Livingston isnt any different from the res;. Merely because the- Windsor Jockey Club boosted 1 the Frontier Handicap to 0,000 isnt reason to believe that Mr. Livingston would ignore ether racing points for the plant ae-ro-s the river, bat it is . lielieved that he will go where there is glory to be had and from present prospects it appears as if ; therell 1m- prestige enough for the tacky w inn i of the Frontier this year. Desires Competition More Than Financial Reward. Situat el as he- is. competition is more desired by Livingston than the financial reward that woul.! accrue with victory. It is almo-t certain that the foremost stables of America will be represented in this years race, under which conditions Mr. Livingston, arete he destined to win. would lie i-ewarlee , after a fashiein that appeals to him more than the - mone-.v. In no way will either of the Wii.dsor Jockey Cluhl . meetings conflict with other points whereat the Chicagoau Might elect to compete, unless it be in the cast. CharchiB Downs. Douglas Park and I.ato .ia. the three big Kentucky tracks, will have hail the i.-fling anil the stables there will scatter for points • in Canada or near the Atlantic seaboard. Wha -ours- Livingston will pursue depends entirely - upon his own judgment. Entries for the i- VYinelsoi fixtures wll not close until May 14. which ,! gives him plenty of time to make his choice. lie-will find that there always is tie- welCOSSC sign ,, banc out f.r him at Windsor, however.
