i j Dufferin Park Meeting Opens; No Wagering on Feature Event ; TORONTO, Ont., June 15— The final! week of racing in this sector until next1 fall gets under way tomorrow, when the Metropolitan Racing Association stages its I regular spring session at Dufferin Park. I . The inaugural day program is an ex- ceptionally good one. When only four ! horses were named overnight for the ,000 1 Little Saratoga Handicap, the chief offer- ing of the matinee, Fred S. Orpen decided j to make it a "betless" affair and card eight races. What should develop Into a sizzling contest is the seven furlongs of the Oakville Handicap, in which nine top grade sprint-j ers, representing eight interests, have been entered. Top weight of this select party is Mrs. J. B. Ayres Ronrico, bracketed at 121 pounds. The latter suffered some ill racing luck in his last start when finishing third and in all probability will command most support tomorrow.
