BOWIE TRACK OPENS FRIDAY ! 1 Good Sport Looked For at Final Maryland .Meeting of Year. Special Races for Better Grade of Horses Prominent Turfmen Reserve Stable Room. i BALTIMORE, y., November 10. Racine at Pim-ico will como to an end on Thursday, and on the following day the annual fall meeting of the Southern Maryland Agricultural Association will open at Prince George Park, Bowie. This meeting will continue up to and including Saturday, November 29, bringing to a close the Maryland season of 1919. Willie a number of the more pretentious stables now racing at Pimlico will go into winter quarters immediately after the conclusion of the Maryland Jockey Club meeting, still there are quite a few of the larger racing establishments that will send representatives to the Rowie track. For this reason racing secretary Joseph McLennan is now busy compiling several .special races for the better class horses, in addition to the regularly arranged program. 3Ir. McLennan has had stables reserved for the following prominent turfmen: W. R. Coe, The Reach Stable, Ral Parr, R. F. Carman, G. W. Loft, C. M. Garrison, W. T. Wilkinson, Samuel Bc5Sta8.tuZ jJSlapslineMijs. Dosoris?jStaUle,iJo fir- DuVls, J. Fitzsimmons, Rrookside Stable, Larry Waterbury, J. II. Rosseter, 13. M. Weld, Triple Springs Farm Stable, J. F. Schorr, J. J. Ilallcn-beck, F. D. Weir, A. II. Morris, North Shore Stable and It. T. Wilson. The presence of such prominent turfmen assures Rowie of a better grade of horses than were ever raced at Prince George Park before. NO PUKSE LESS THAN ,000. The recent announcement of the management that no purse will be less than 1,000 and that frcm ,500 to ,500 will be distributed among the horsemen daily resulted in keeping in this vicinity a number of horsemen who intend to race during the AViuter and would now be on their way either to New Orleans or Havana, Cuta. They will now finish out the Maryland season at Rowie and then , proceed to their winter destination. The Rowie track is in fine condition, and with a higher grade of horses taking part in the racing some of the old-time marks are in danger of being shuttered. Track superintendent Pending says the course will be much faster than ever before, and unless an unusually long wet spell sets in patrons of the Prince George track will see some grand i nHirt. Difficulty is being experienced in taking care of all the applications for stall room, and it has i been decided to allot quarters only for horses ready r to race. No yearlings will be permitted on Uie : grounds during the lneeting. Joseph -A. Murphy, who has been in New Orleans ; for tlje past week or ten days in connection with i the coming winter meetings in the Crescent City, is expected here Wednesday and will again officiate 3 in the stand at Bowie. Associated with him will 1 be J. II. Anderson and George Miller, while the stewards of the meeting will be E. C. Smith, W. 1. Spurgeon ami C. C. Hall. Edward Tribe will 1 again do the starting and Joseph McLennan is the J racing secretary. There is no reason to doubt that the wonderful 1 interest displayed in racing during the fall meetings - at Havre do Grace, Laurel and Pimlico will be 2 continued at Rowie and will result in Prince George : Park being called upon to accommodate the largest t crowds in its history.
