I BELMONT PARK NOTES f Tred Avon, the most consistent mare in training, is now stabled at Belmont Park, having been shipped from Maryland, where she scored a decisive victory in the Bowie Inaugural Handicap last Friday. She is quartered in Joseph E. Wideners private stable. The Widener chute at Belmont Park, which was opened Monday, is in excellent condition both for safety and speed. The steeplechase course will be open for schooling Wednesday. The bank jumps have been brushed up as usual with pine boughs, the only course in the country, with the exception of the new United Hunts course near Roslyn, L. I., thus equipped. The horses of E. R. Bradley and Mrs. K. E. Hitt arrived at Belmont Park Tuesday. The Glen Riddle Farm string is due Wednesday. There are now 800 thoroughbreds at Belmont Park, and others are arriving daily.
