I Add ,000 to Acorn Purse I BELMONT PARK, Elmont, L. I. N. Y., June 5. The Greater New York Association announced today that ,000 will be added to the purse of the Acorn Stakes which was run last Monday. The reason for the move was that the mile race for fillies had been advertised this spring as a 0,000 race," . but when the stakes nomination books were printed an error was made and the race was listed as a 5,000 event. All of the first four finishers share in the added ,000 with Claiborne Farms Bayou being. credited with 26,000 instead of 2,650 Ceorge D. Wideners Teleran receiving ,000 instead of ,000 for finishing 2nd; King Ranchs Here and There receiving 3,000 instead of ,500 and C. V. Whitneys Magic Forest being credited with 1,500 instead of ,250 for finishing 4th. The gross value becomes 6,800. The GNYA felt they should stick by their original advertised value of the race.
