FORBURY PARK TROTS
TWO ATTRACTIVE ITEMS. Given favorable weather conditions Friday, tho opening day of tho 'Spring Meeting, should prove a, memorable day at Forbury Park. In addition to the scheduled eight events, two items have just been tacked on to tho programme, making a total of 10 events. These extra events will be, decided after the sixth race—about 4.30 p.m. Win ■Soon (driven by Pringle) and Country Belle (driven by Morland), winner and runner-up of the New Zealand Trotting Cup, will first meet, in an endeavor to lower tho track record of 4min 50sec for two miles. The club are offering a purse of 250sovs in the event of this being done —200sovs for tho winner, and SOsovs for the other horse if his time is within the 4.30 limit. Emmeline will also attack the existing mile record, 2min 8 2-ssec, and if she succeeds will receive a purse of ICOsovs offered by tho club. The afternoon’s programme is undoubtedly an enticing one.
