MEET LOOKS GOOD
Heavy Entries Expected From
the Western Horse
Special to The Globe
BUFFALO. N. T., March 18.—The
Kenllworth park meeting here promises
this year to be the best of the minor
meetings beld under the Jurisdiction of
the Jockey club. The dates assigned, from
June 10 to July 15. allow for thirty-one
days' racing, and the weather, judging
from other years, should be excellent.
The stake list for the track is now In
course of preparation and the announce
ment of events will be made shortly. The
closing dates probably will be around
April 10. In order that "horsemen racing at
Bennings may have a chance to slm up
their material. 8. S. Howland. president
of the Buffalo racing association, says
that the prospects for a successful season
at Kenilworth park are extremely briK.it.
"The Buffalo dates will conflict only in
a slight degree with Toronto and Hamil
ton," said Mr. Howland. "and the mret
ing probably will attract the best horses
racing on those tracks. I believe our
eastern representation will be much better
than the past, because the metropolitan
owners are beginning to understand that
the meetings are first class.
Good Climate for Horses
"That the climate is beneficial for
horses is shown by the fact that so many
Buffalo horses go to New York and win
good races at the fall meetings. Western
owners are also likely to enter heavily,
because of the unsettled condition of af
rairs in the west. The Jockey club rec
ognizes only rulings for fraud, and there
fore the so-called outlaw rules will not
hold good. We should attract the 'best
horses from both factions."
According to the stake lists now being
arranged, about $80,000 will be distributed
at Kenilworth park during the five weeks'
meeting. There will be sixteen stake
events. The principal race will be the
Buffalo Derby, which. It is expected, will
have a value of about 96.000. The Serial
handicap, which proved very successful
last year, will be retained and steeple
chasing will be ma3e more of a feature
than in the past. Probably four stakes
for juveniles will be placed on the pro
It is not known who will be designated
starter at the meeting. Mars Cassidy oc
cupied the position last year, but he will
officiate on the metropolitan circuit this
season, thus necessitating the appoint
ment of a successor at Buffalo. It Is un
derstod that Joseph Murphy and Francis
"Nelson will act as presiding judge and
steward respectively. Mr. Murphy's con
tract with the now American Turf asso
ciation calls for him to act as starter
when necessary, but the suggestion that
he act in that capacity at Kenilworth is
not being seriously considered.

BICYCLE RACING IS
BOOMING IN ENGLAND
Paced Matches Will, However,
Be Barred by Public
Special Cable to The Globe
LONDON, March 18.—That l»05 will
be a great year for strenuous cyclists—
unaided by any artificial help in the
way of pacing a specially prepared
track —is a foregone conclusion. Path
racing at both long and short distances
has lost the hold that it had on the
public, but the reasons are not far to
seek. In short distance races, "crawl
ing" and "headwork" are to blame.
English people prefer to see "the race
go to the fleet," and to see men on
cycles almost standing still in their
position savors more of a circus per
formance than an athletic test.
The "headwork" of which so much is
heard, is also unappreciated even if
understood, by the great British public.
Unfortunately this "headwork" is often
only another name for foul riding and
there is no gainsaying the fact' that
men are often "pocketed" and "cut in,"
and thus put out of short races. Scarce
ly a week goes by but what some pro
fessional short distance rider is either
fined or suspended for "shady tactics"
(generally headwork), and even ama
teur riders have been known to stoop
to such methods to secure a win. In
long distance events there is little
scope for "headwork," but the difficulty
of obtaining fair and equal pacing, so
that the competitors are equally
"drawn out," has been for some time
insuperable. Pacir-g tends to "draw a
man out'—for instance, a child with a
hoop will run twice as far as one with
out this incentive—and also shelters
the rider from the wind.
Two kinds of pacing have been used
in England, tandems and motors. The
former, although safer, are perhaps
less satisfactory, as it sometimes hap
pens that an inferior rider with supe
rior tandem crews will beat a better
man with inferior pacing, and as these
races often develop into processions—

string, sandwiched by a corresponding
number of "racers."
No wonder that the lookers on after
such an exhibition, never want to see
another. Motors, owing to their pow
er, steadier speed and greater shelter,
enable the same rider to travel 50 per
cent to 75 per cent faster than behind
tandems. The public has seen through
the trickiness and artificiality of path
racing and have withheld their patron

idly forsaking the path and devoting
their attention solely to unpaced road
riding, which dispenses with all extra
neous aid and .is obviously the finest
test of a man's endurance and pluck.
These events are rarely of less distance
than 100 miles, and thus insure a uni
form steadiness of riding on the part
of competitors who have any intention
of staying the full journey. The rider
is alone and unaccompanied through

sources he must look for the fruits of

PUBLIC EAGER TO BET
ON EDWARD'S HORSE
Purchase of Moifaa by King Re
duced His Price Im
Special Cable to The Globe
LONDON', March 18.—The price of
Moifaa for the Grand National has
fallen as though his purchase by the
king had liberated him from some ma
lignant influence. There is not the
slightest reason for supposing any
thing of the kind, and the rush to get
"on" which followed the announce
ment of his sale only illustrates afresh
the enthusiasm of the public for the
"purple and gold." Moifaa has arrived
at Newmarket, where he is to complete
his preparation under the charge of
the king's trainer. That he will be
well looked after is certain, but all the
same the mere transfer cannot have
improved his prospects so enormously
as to justify the sudden reduction of
his price by nearly 50 per cent.
Commenting on this subject the
Field says: "There are always many
suspicious persons who imagine they
am see toadyism and collusion in
every royal victory; but the very op
posite is the case in reality. His maj
esty throughout his racing career has
had to fight as hard for success as the
humblest commoner among his sub
jects. On one occasion, no dotibt, an
important winner in the royal livery
should by rights have been disquali
fied, the rules of racing having been
flagrantly transgressed by the jockey,
but from a mistaken sense of the "di
vine right of kings." even when they
are only heirs apparent, the owner of
the second horse refused to object.
Everything in sporting circles known
about the king goes to oppose the idea
that loyalty of this description would
find favor in his eyes. There will be
the same strenuous effort to beat Moi
faa as there would have been had he
remained Mr. Coland's property."

VESPER BOAT CREW
111 ROW IN GERMANY
Champion Eight to Race at
Hamburg for Kaiser's
Special to The Globe
PHILADELPHIA, Ifarch 1 8. —James
Dempsey, who coached the Vesper Boat
club's championship eight last year,
has signed a contract to handle tha
Vesper's Henley eight. Dempsey has
had charge of the Vesper men all year
in their indoor work, but his ultimate
selection was doubtful, as he had al
ready agreed to coach the university
barge club crew this season.
Satisfactory arrangements were made
with the barge club officials, so that
Dempsey willingly put his name to a
Vesper contract. He coached tlie uni
versity barge club crew last season, and
developed the crack sculler, Jesse AVill
iamson He did not begin his work
with Vesper until after July 4, hut
showed his ability by whipping a vir
tual green crew into a championship
eight in three weeks.
The invitation received recently from
the officials of the German regatta,
which will be held at Hamburg on July
15 and 16, will be accepted. This re
gatta corresponds to the English Hen
ley and the national regatta in thfa
country. The emperor of Germany la
especially interested in this meeting of
oarsmen, and usually attends the races.
He has now offered through the stew
ards a cup to be known as the Kaiser's
cup for a race between the Vesper
Boat club eight and the German crews.
The regatta officials are determined
to allow no opportunity to pass to bring
the Vesper men to their races. They
have even offered to stand all th<
penses of the trip. This regatta takes
place two weeks after the Kiiylish n.-n
-ley, and the Vesper men would have
sufficient time to recover from the ef
fects of the first race and even practice
over the German course. If Vesper
sends its crew it will be the first race
between-German and American crews
since 1900, when the Vespers defeated
the crack crews from the fatherland on
the Seine at Paris for the world's
