Dick Welles* Selections At Lexington . . • ! " s 0 , J 0 1 ■ ., 6 e • e j a a r n • D RENBARG— MALLY JANE— SUTLER. The limit number will very likely go to the post in the first race and here RENBARG is given the call over MALLY JANE and SUTLER. He was last seen in action at Miami, where he finished in the money on a few occasions. It is reported that he is fit as hands can make him at the present, and is ready for a winning race. MALLY JANE raced last Saturday when she finished second to Rodrigo. The same performance here would find her again taking down the place. SUTLER raced fairly well at Jefferson Park and if he runs as well today should be able to get a portion of the purse. BOBBY has been working exceedingly well. He may get in the money if the others fail. GENERAL HALDEMAN— LUXEMBOURG tOOHOGAX. Eighteen maiden two year-olds were en- tered for the second number to race over the half-mile distance. On speed trials, GENERAL HALDEMAN is given the pref-11 erence over the others. He has only had one race to date, when he finished a good third. Since arriving here from the Fair Grounds he has been coming along in a man-s ner to suggest that he will prove a high-class juvenile. LUXEMBOURG appeared to tire in his race last Saturday, and he is able to do much better. A race to his true form would find him close up at the finish. COO-HOG AN showed well in his only start, and may be good enough to land the show money. FAST BLACK is a first time starter, but is reported to be a good one. BEAR GRASS— THE SPA— ASDRY. The limit number were entered for the third race, a distance affair for platers. BEAR GRASS last raced over the New Orleans courses, and was then shipped here to be freshened up for a Kentucky campaign. He has been taking to his work in a kindly manner and has been showing plenty of speed. On this account he is given the preference over THE SPA and ANDRY. THE SPA had a race last Saturday, when he finished second to Fantoche. He is the one most feared here. ANDRY finished behind THE SPA in their last meeting, but it was seen that the former tired badly in the stretch. The race should have done him some good and we are looking for him to improve over that effort. FRANKMAN was campaigned at the Huntington meeting and is gradually getting into form. He should be close up at the finish. LITTLE VISITOR— TEAK— ROTH ERM EL. A review of LITTLE VISITORS race last Saturday when she finished second to T. S. Jordan would show that she encounered much interference and was in close quarters all through the final sixteenth. She has all the speed in this race and looks to be the best play on the card. The Goldblatt filly. TEAK appeared a little short in her last race but she should go much better today as the effort should have put her on edge for ■ todays test. ROTHERMEL was also a little short in her last race, as she tired badly in . the s.retch. Look for her to improve over that performance. If CROSS VILLAGE were to run back to her last race she would prove dangerous here. OLD SLIP— CHEROKEE LEE— BUCKWHEAT CAKE. The fifth number, called the Paris Furse, is the best on the card as far es class of performers is concerned. OLD SLIP, which races for L. T. Cooper, figures to be home the winner over CHEROKEE LEE and I BUCKWHEAT CAKE. The rest he has had I since his arriving here should find him in i fine fettle right now and we look for him | to run one of his good races. CHEROKEE • LEE doesnt come in the same class with 1 OLD SLIP but she should be the one to i chase the latter home. BUCKWHEAT CAKE I is making her first start of the year. A race to her last years form would find her a bang-up contender. SIXTEEN SIXTY— MAYOR BEHRMAN— FIREWATER. Applcgate has a penchant for naming his I performers with the well known "sixty." He , has one entered in the sixth race in SIXTEEN SIXTY, and a right good one too. She has started three times to date, and was . victorious in two of them. If she were to run as kindly today think she could add 1 another score to her credit. MAYOR • BEHRMAN is still a maiden, but he is well 1 thought of, and may be the one to get the place money. FIREWATER won her last t two races but the company she meets hert . is a little siffer and dont think she will I prove a repeater. FANTOCHE— NORSELAND— FOOLSCAP. FANTOCHE started his Kentucky campaign auspiciously when he w-as winner in l his race last Saturday. With weight off f today, he looks like all the class in this race. . NORSKLAND hung up a fair record while I racing at Tampa and if she were to race as I well here would be the one to take down the ? flace money. FOOLSCAP figurts slightly t better than STONEAGE and is the one we select to finish third.
