FRANK J. WIKOFF,

J. E. MUNHALL,
Practically every detail has been
completed for the June meeting of the
Oklahoma City Jockey club. The
track is being put into the pink of
condition and horses are reaching the
Fair Grounds every day. Officers
named to preside over the meeting
give assurance that it is the purpose
of the club to have everything con-
ducted alonn first class lines. The
meeting will begin Tuesday. June 13
and end July 4.
The two big races of the season
will be the Derby on the opening day !
and the Independence Handicap. Hach
will be for a purse of $1,000 ami gives j
some idea of the liberality of the club.
In addition to the two big purses,
there will be any number of other
substantial stakes held out to owners.
There will positively be as many as
six races every day, and possibly
more on certain occasions. Pew
purses for less than $200 have been
arranged, and the book just issued
for the first week contains many
races for which $300 are offered.
Three of the officers of the club
are well known in Oklahoma while the
others are known by reputation. K. C
Smith, the new presiding judge, comes
here from New York City with the
highest endorsement, including the

been overlooked in the way of pro- •
viding accommodations for horses as
well as trainers and attendants.

Others officers include Arthur Mc-
Knight, starter; l . A. Brady, clerk of

all of whom are well known through-
out the southwest. Mr. McKnight has
served as starter for two years and

who never lets a barrier fly up until
there is every indication of a good
break. He understands jockeys and
the methods some use, and will not
tolerate anything but fair play -at the
post. For two years Mr. Brady served
in the capacity of presiding judge. His
work was satisfactory in every re-

The track at the Fair Grounds is
being worked out every night, and
already the trainers are getting their
horses ready for the opeing day. Ow-
ing to the long drought, the track
became hard and dry. Sprinklers and
the recent big rain have combined to
make the ground soft and easy
the horses to negotiate. Ii arrows All

It. is estimated that there are now

horses at the grounds, and more are
coming in on nearly every train from

j cuinstances will Sunday racing be per-
I initted, even though there might be
no protest, and the management pro-
poses to see that every one gets a

' ducted solely for the purpose of pro-

that it is a divertiseinent well worth
