Editor Canso Breeze.
Sir:
The sport lovers in and about Guysborough, have heard with a good deal of regret that it is not proposed to hold a horse race at Hazel Hill this winter. This race has become a fixture and has been conducted with great ability by those in charge. The officials have been most capable and courteous and decidedly fair, so that there in no place in the county where owners of fast horses would rather go for a good days sport.
It is hoped the officials will not discontinue this event, but will put forth every effort to make it the usual success. There are a number of fast horses at this end of the county. Hull, Shea, Bruce and Pyle have good horses this season. Other, entries would be Peart, John and William Scott, of Melford, and Ernest Peoples, of Mulgrave. We trust the promoters at Canso will see that the race will be held this winter.
