New Jersey Notes MONMOUTH PARK, Oceanport, N. J., June 16. Dr. J. M. Lee, owner and trainer and master of Solar Farm, Washington, N. J., left Monmouth Park, today for a short trip to Lexington. Ky., to inspect some of the yearlings which will be offered at the summer sales. Joe D. Mooney, former rider, has taken over the engagement book of jockey Harry McGuigon, who has been a regular on the New Jersey circuit for several years. William Entenmann, under contract to Elmer Zimmerman, made his Monmouth debut Saturday. Ed Silvy is handling the youngsters book. Entenmann is a native of Norristown, Pa., and "broke his maiden* at Gulf stream Park. He weighs in at 103 pounds. Monmouth Park has installed a new horseshoe board to give information to its patrons as to the type of footgear worn by the thoroughbreds in their daily races. The information is available on a board near the paddock. Louis Mitchell, valet to jockey Jimmy Stout, was a late arrival for the Monmouth Park meeting. Mitchell was delayed when his car was badly smashed in an accident while en route from Delaware Park. Mitchell was only shaken up in the crash. Apprentice Robert L. Stevenson, one of the turfs brightest saddle prospects, won his nineteenth race Saturday astride Dol-largofast, and now needs but a single victory to reach the twentieth mark which automatically cancels two pounds of the seven-pound weight allowance he now holds. He will then continue the balance of his apprenticeship with the usual five-pound "bug". Jockey Ira "Babe" Hanford has been engaged to ride Uncle Miltie in Wednesdays Omnibus Handicap, second major stake on Monmouth Parks 1952 summer calendar.
