As there is to be no Fourth of July celebration in Ashland or Medford this year, the Medford Driving Club, after taking the proposition up with Ashland, had a meeting recently and decided to give a race meet on that day, and the lovers of good racing are promised one of the fastest contests in the free-for-all pace ever seen on this track. Albia and King Seal, who are both in fine shape, will be in this race, besides five others who carry equally good records. And there will be no doubt as to the owners seeing that their horses do their best, for, as we all know, there exists a strong rivalry between them as to which one is the faster.
The program will consist of:
Free-for-all pace, $200
Free-for-all trot, $100
Green race for colts, $25
Buggy race, $50
Free-for-all running race, $50
Free-for-all pony race, $25
Conditions for buggy race are that horses shall be hitched to buggies. Hopples are barred and no horse with a mark shall be allowed to compete.
All harness races shall be three half-mile heats, every heat a race, draw for positions at end of each heat. Money is divided in harness races, 40, 25, 15 and 10 percent. No entrance fee.
Races will be called at 2:30 sharp.
Prepare to come to Medford for a good time on July 4.
