spring racing season of 1923 on the Jockey Club tracks is to be inaugurated at Jamaica May 2 gives increased interest in the stakes which closed on March 1 with secretary Walter C Edwards The returns for the eighteen events exceeded the ex ¬ pectations of the management and there is a guarantee of firstclass sport throughout the meeting meetingAs As was to be expected the Excelsior Han ¬ dicap of 7500 at a mile and a sixteenth has practically every good horse in the country engaged and the same is true of the Kings County and Long Beach Handicaps which are to be runver the same distance and are also for threeyearolds and over Prac ¬ tically the same nominations have been mado for all three races but the Excelsior has the call with the public in the way of popularity as it is to Jamaica

Mad Hatter and Yellow Hand HandThe The heaviest nominator to the Excelsior and in fact to all of the Jamaica events ia the Rancocas Stable whose grand total ia 155 entries surpassing by thirtyfive the
