Tomorrow afternoon the United Hunts Racing Association will conduct its one day of sport at Roslyn, on the estate of Charles V. Hickok, and one of the best steeplechase courses to be found anywhere. It was the custom of the United Hunts Association to have its spring meeting before the opening of the season of the courses of The Jockey Club, but with this delightful racing ground the meetings have been set back in the hope of more desirable weather conditions. For the racing tomorrow afternoon, the big event is the Bowman Steeplechase Handicap, named in memory of the late John McEntee Bowman, former president of the association and a sportsman who did much to advance the amateur sport. This is a race of about two miles over the brush course and from the nineteen that have been nominated an excellent field is assured. The Roslyn Steeplechase Handicap, for hunters, is important. Twenty are named in this and they comprise the best in that class. There are two hurdle events and a mile and a quarter on the flat, with amateurs to ride.
