Chapman will go to Little Rock as
part payment by Browns.
In spite of the protests of many of
the- horsemen, the promoters of the
Illinois Jockey club are going ahead
with their plans to extend the Haw
thorne race meet. The horsemen
who are opposed to the extension ar
gue that further racing at this time,
when the game is going along qn
thin ice might kill its chances for the
Frank Froehling, Eugene Beifeld
and Tom Carey, owner of the track,
are the leaders for the extension.
They take the position that as the
game might be stopped altogether
after this season by the howl of the
reformers they might as well get the
money while the "getting" is good.
The reformers, led by Arthur Bur
rage Farwell, are already getting
busy on their plans to kilj racing for
all time and many of the sportsmen
say the extension will be an ace in
their hands. They can put up the
claim that the gamblers so dominate
the meeting that they forced an ex
tension when the bets started com
ing fast. And such a clamor will
surely effect the new racing bill that
is going to be introduced in the state
legislature this year.
It was a great day for the ,bookies
yesterday. . Only one favorite, J. C.
Welch, copped. The bookies said
that they believed every piker at the
track had a bet on Welsh and he was
carrying odds from 3 y to 8 to 1.
Athough yesterday's races were
composed for the most part of selling
platers, there were some nice races.
The best contest was the third,
which Milbrey copped, followed by
Burbank and Deckhand.
