condition is the statement of race
promoters. The recent rains have !
packed it so that it is as solid and
even as can be. Should it rain till
tomorrow morning and then be burned
for a few hours by the sun, the track j
would still be fast The promoters ;
look for the largest crowd of the sea- J

greatly augmented, the club will close ;
up its races for this season at least.
