Demary Finally Checks In at Fairmount Park Texas Sportsman Has Fourteen Racers at Collinsville Course COLLINSVILLE, 111., June 27. After many disappointments, Felix J. Demary, Orange, Texas, breeder and who has 14 horses housed at Fairmount Park, finally reached here today, coming from his farm. The Demary horses, here two weeks, have not been started because of a technicality, but since their owner has arrived, the silks of the Texan will be seen in action tomorrow or the next day. Demary, due here 10 days ago, was first delayed because of business pressure, then the death of his sister at Abbeville, La., - and finally one of three grooms he was to take here took ill, and that delayed him several more days. J. M. Nugent, trainer for the Myrtle Maroon Stable, registered the five horses he brought here from Chicago. In addition to Letter V., and Liberty Flash, a pair of four-year-olds who raced here Saturday in the Alton Handicap, Nugent also registered Miss Omega and Red Tet, also .owned by the Myrtle Maroon Stable. The other is the two-year-old Young Geordie who races in the silks of his wife. Nugent bred and raised the son of Saracen on his small farm in East St. Louis. Young Geordie has started but once and that was an easy victory scored at Hawthorne. Myrtle Maroon Stable is owned by Peetz ; and Scott of St. Louis.
