Description: Delaware Racing Season Will Close Thanksgiving Day at MiltonDate: November 20 1909
Milton, Del., Bov. 20, 1909:
The final matinee horse racing of the season will be held here Thanksgiving afternoon when the Milton Driving Association will hold four events on the track. The race will be under the management of the secretary, John P. Wilson.
An effort is being made to match Silver Nut, the fast pacing stud owned by B. B. Ewing of Lewes, and Julia Marlowe, the brown mare from Bishopville, Maryland, which the Collins Bros., claim can beat any horse from Wilmington to Cape Charles. Two months ago Silver Nut took three straight heats from Julia Marlowe and Mr. Ewing, after hearing of the challenge given out by the Collins Bros., is anxious to match the two again. Failing in matching Julia Marlowe with Silver Nut an effort will be made to match Dry Dock, owned by D. C. Armstrong of Princess Ann, with the fast Lewes pacer.
