Offers 0,000 for Race Between My Own and Winner of International Race LAUREL, Md Oct. 1C. The Maryland State Fair is grateful for the splendid patronage of both Baltimore and Washington racegoers at its fall meeting at Laurel and feel that they should show their appreciation in some manner, and the management is making every effort to give their patrons an opportunity of seeing the Washington-owned colt My Own measure strides with the winner of the International match, to be run at Belmont Park on Saturday. There has been a lot of dissatisfaction expressed by admirers of My Own that he and not Zev was selected as the standard bearer in the great International race. The people in this section are not alone in thinking that in his present form My Own is the superior of Zev over a mile and a half distance. With the end in view of bringing the winner of Saturdays race and My Own together the following telegram was sent this morning to both Samuel C. Hildreth and Basil Jarvis, trainer of Papyrus: Baltimore, Oct., 16, 1923. "I am offering 0,000 purse for race October 25th at Laurel Park between My Own and winner of the International. Distance one mile and a half, weights 12G pounds." Signed S PAULDING LOWE JENKINS. In the event of either Mr. Hildreth or Mr. Jarvis accepting, the race will be run Thursday, October 25. The following telegram was received by Mr. Jenkins in answer to his earlier in the day: Jamaica Race Track, N. Y., Oct. 16, 1923. "Spalding Lowe Jenkins, Laurel, Md., "Your offer of fifty thousand dollars purse for race between My Own and winner of International match at one mile and one half, to be run October 25, received. If Zev is fortunate enough to win, I will with great pleasure accept your offer. Signed "S. C. HILDRETH."
