O'Rourke, superinten- dent of the West Virginia State Police has announced that ef- fective November 15. the Department of Public Safety will begin a stringent enforce- merit of the new compulsory in- surance law. Earlier this year, the depart- ment had in effect a policy which mandated that citations be issued for flagrant violations of the new law; but whenever possible, State Police officers were directed to issue warning notices in order to acqtmint tha citizens of West Virginia with the provisions of the com- pulsory insurance legislation. Colonel O'Rourke indicated that a s ficient amount of time "Vision Quest" Wagon Train in County Passing through Kearneysville, this wagon train is part of a rehabilitation program for teens run by Vision Quest, traveling to Tucson, Arizona. Starting from Franklin, Penn the five wagons, pulled by matched mules, included ad- visors, teachers, a doctor and other councilors on horseback, was indeed a sight to see.

The field will represent the survivors of a process that began nearly three years ago when 528 mares were nominated for the 1983 Tri- State. The foals the mares were carrying became eligible for the race and owners of 143 of them have sustained that eligibility. That is the key to true futurity racing. The eventual runners are nominated before they are born and there are no supplemental entries. The Tri- State, inaugurated in 1962 at Shenandoah Downs, is the lone U.S. survivor under those rules. The Tristate also has per- slsted in one rapidly disap- pearing facet of stakes racing: all stakes money put up by owner get their youngsters .into the race goes to the win- ning owner. Virtually all other stakes races in this country divide all monies on a percen- tage basis. The TriState is ran at 7- furlongs for 2-year-olds foaled in Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia. Entrit~ will be taken Wednesday (No ember I0). This year's Blue Ridge Mountain freshman crop is one of the best to come the Tri- State way and if it weren't for an extraordinary bunch of youngsters eyeing West Virginia's richest race from afar, a half-dozen local trainers might be watching each other instead of potential visitors. William T. Golf, who will he seeking his second TriState win, had saddled Jim Sales Classic Edition for two straight victories, a division of last Sunday's Tri- State Prep. Charles A. Wood- son has done the same with Onion Juice, a colt he owns in partnership with D.C. Wilson and which won the Tristate Prep's second division. And those two may not be the best here On Saturday prior to the Prep, James A. Palmer sent Robert L. Palmer's Cocoa Cafe out for her second straight victory. Although she has started only twice, the filly has impressed with easy scores at Penn National and then at Charles Town. She was bred by her owner, who is not related to the trainer. Then there are the possible shippers. The big name is Ryehill Farm's Bemissed, winner of Laurers Selima Stakes. It seems likely that trainer Woody Stepham will look for bigger ame with Bemissed, but she remains among the more than 140 eligible for this year's Tri- State and her appearance next Saturday would not be a total surprise. has passed, and he feels confi- dent that all citizens are now aware of the requirements im- posed by the law. The new policy, effective November 15. will require cita- tions for those citizens who can- not furnish proof of insurance coverage as required.
