nounced that If the weather is rainy In
the morning (Thursday) and threaten
ing In the afterrtoon the opening of the
show will be postponed until Friday
morning at it o'clock. if postponement
is necessary the events scheduled for
Thursday will be run off Friday morn
The opening day Is planned to have
a particularly good program of events.
California bred roadsters and the wo
men's hunting classes seem destined to
prove the most popular. In all events
handsome cups and other prizes have
been hung up.
The events scheduled for this after
noon, If it does not rain, are: Califor
nia bred roadsters, single; harness
horses, pairs; three-gated saddle horses,
roadsters, single; harness horses, pairs
and appointments; Shetland stallions,
California bred horses, pairs; harness
horses, road fours and appointments;
coach stations, shown to lead; wo
men's, hunters, runabouts. ' *
The crowd at the . horse show often
ls dissatisfied with the" decision In
classes In which apolntments are fig
ured In. Appointments of course Include
the vehicle to which the horse or horses
are hitched as well as the harness. All
the details - must be in perfect accord
with the class, and many a horse who
has captured the hearts of the specta
tors loses out because his master did
not suitably equip him for the event.
This evening the directors of the as
sociation, the Hi'! !rlb of trie exhibition
ring and the judge* for the several
events are guests of Benjamin Blossom
at his handsome home on South Orange
Grove avenue. After an elaborate din
ner the men. who have worked to make
the third annual show In Pasadena
which, Incidentally, Is the last one for
the Crown city for two years, a sue
cess talked over final details.
lt Is the opinion of all the officials
that the show this year will be far
better than any yet held In the,state,
lf it does not rain. More and finer
cups than ever before have been hung
up and the list of entries Is probably
the largest of any show yet held.
The entry list will not be announced
until the first event 'a called, be that
this afternoon, Friday morning or later.
lr Is always the object to keep this
list quiet so that those in certain
classes may not know with whom they
will compete. It is feared that If a
competitor with only a moderate chance
of success should learn that some
famous horse is entered in the class In
which he is to compete, he might with
This year - the Los Angeles - people
win have a better chance to get to the
horse show than ever before, for it is
the first time In the history of the show
that a car line from Los Angeles has
run anywhere near the grounds. This
year one of the handiest ways to reach
Tournament park from Los Angeles
will be via the Wentworth cars, and
many will undoubtedly choose that
route. . . . .
-This year the sale of boxes in the
grand stand has been unusually large
and the event will be more of a society
one even than the ones held In past
years. The grand stand has been re
arranged for the occasion and aisles
have been left so that it wil be easier
to move about from part to part of the
The big hotels have reserved an un
usually large number of boxes and
seats for their guests and as the horses
centerede entered this year are even more classy
than they were last year, the event will
undoubtedly be one of the most marked
successes of any of the many success
ful shows given in Pasadena. ,
