Mont Sanders is also coming from the interior of the state. There will be no scarcity of horses for the ordinary grade of races and if the proper response comes from the Thoroughbred Horsemens Committee the feature races will not suffer for a lack of entries. Arrangements were made with the Electric Service Construction Company to install radio station on the grounds that will broadcast a description of the races within radius of 200 miles. All government supplies were gotten out of the infield yesterday and the work of laying the buildings down will be begun today. No attempt will be made to clear the infield until after the meeting. The buildings will leave some scars on the porperty, but the view of the spectators will not be interfered with and the rest of the property will be in shipshape. Tom Murray, the well-known horseman, will leave for Lexington Saturday night to explain to horsemen in full all details of the meeting. He has made a personal inspection of the track and will be able as an expert to give first-hand information to those desiring to ship here. . 1 i 1 ; ! t : . 2 j I 3 a a 1 a x f e s t il O n
