Dwyer Stakes at Aqueduct Today Sir Barton a Doubtful Starter Owing to a Bruised Hoof Great Crowd Expected to See the Big Race NEW YORK X Y July 9 Metropolitan turf patrons who have been eagerly awaiting the much discussed meeting of Sir Barton and Purchase in the Dwyer Stakes tomorrow may be doomed to disap ¬ pointment as it is not certain that Sir Barton will be a starter although his name appears in the over ¬ night entries It depends on whether or not Commander Ross great colt responds to the treatment trainer Bedwell has applied to a bruised hoof the colt is suffering from which he injured a few days ago while being prepared for tomorrows big race It is to be sincerely hoped that such will be the case as no other turf event of the New York season has attracted more interest than the prospective meeting of the champion threeyearold of the year and Purchase the only threeyearold colt con ¬ ceded a chance to take the measure of the sensational son of Star Slioot The defeat of Purchase by Eternal in the Brooklyn Handicap is not taken seriously by the admirers of the Hildreth colt as he was conceding Eternal twelve pounds and fractionsness at the post and interference at the start were a combination of circumstances that contributed to his downfall downfallPurchase Purchase will have an advantage in the matter of weights in the Dwyer three pounds less than Eternal which is a sure starter and nine pounds concession from Sir Barton While this advantage is not to be overlooked still Purchase has proved that he can shoulder heavy imposts and win That he is a colt of tremendous speed is conceeded by all but beating Sir Barton is another question One thing Is certain that if the latter is in condition to start it should be a wonderful race to witness and without doubt one of the largest crowds of tlie year will be present Besides Sir Barton Purchase and Eternal Cirrus a stablemate of Purchase Crystal Ford and Questionnaire are among the prospective starters
