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
