Dick Welles* Selections At Lexington HUON PIXE— BOTHER— JIDGE PSTOR. HUON TINE is an exceptionally good mud runner and appears to l e the best of those entered in the first race. He has been turning in some fine moves since being quartered here and should be the one to score. BOTHER is partial to the heavy going also and figures to be the one to take down the place money. He scored in the mud at the Fair Grounds in one of his most recent races and accomplished it in fine style, beating some fast steppers. JUDGE PRVOR is reported to be in good condition at the present and may be the one to save the show. BOYS BELIEVE ME is not to l.e overlooked as this Croissant trick has been showing plenty of speed in his works. TEE HEE— EMBRYO— SWEET MAXDT. TEE HEE graduated from the maiden ranks on the occassion of her last start at the Jefferson course over a slow track. She also ran a good third in the mud at the same course. She comes natural by this ability to negotiate the heavy footing for her daddy. Jack Hare Jr., was also a good mudder. EMBRYO performed fairly well in his two starts to date and dopes as the one to land in the place position. SWEET MANDY ran a game race in her only out to be home the winner by a nose over a sloppy track. This all happened at Tampa, and if that race was no fluke she would rate close up at the finish. MAJOE stands a chance of horning in at the finish. WELCOME— MY DESTI ~Y— BROWN BETTY. The third race dopes to find the finish reading as follows; WELCOME, MY DESTINY and BROWN BETTY. The first mentioned has not been to the races since the last Latonia meeting, where he managed to pay his way. He lias been turning in some nice workouts of late and a race to those moves would find him the winner. MY DESTINY is reported much improved over her New Orleans form and appears to be the one to take down the place money. BROWN BETTY does not find the heavy going a detriment and is the one most feared. GABERDINE— PRIXCE CHARLES— COPPERSHIAE. That GABERDINE is all set for a win today is evidenced by the fact that he turned in a half in :50 over a holding course Wednesday morning. If he were to run to that effort in his race today he would not have any trouble in copping off the winners portion of the purse. 1RINCE CHARLES was also given a prep and he pulled up at the end showing no ill effects. While races are not won in the morning trials, they give a true indication of a horses ability. COF-PERSH1NE. a favorite in the stable of Polk Laffoon. started twice last year as a juvenile and he finished second in both of them. If he has not gone back any he slK uld be the one to save the show money for his barn. IDLE HOUR STOCK FARM STABLE ENTRY— PERCENTAGE— MIKE MeLUKE. The fif h. known as the Midway Purse, is another race framed for Derby eligibles and here Bradley starts two more of his color bearers for the big race in BAGENBAO-GAGE, the I»uisiana Derby winner, and BARCOLO. The former is also engaged in the Prcakness, and his showing today will go a long ways toward deciding whether or not he will be sent after that rich stake. BARCOLO is well thought of by his owner and while he did not show anything sensational last year he has been working in a very pleasing manner for the master of Idle Hour. PERCENTAGE rates next highest to the Bradley pair but at that, many points away. MIKE MeLUKE is reported in wonderful condition at the present and he may be good enough to save the show. SINGING CRICKET— LADY PENNANT— AQCITANIA. SINGING CRICKET won her race so easily last Monday that it is hard to conceive of anything in this race that is apt to beat her. She was off with the rise of the barrier and increasing her lead as the race progressed was home an easy winner. LADY PENNANTS action at the post probably lost her last race for her for she acted badly before the tape was sprung and then tired slightly from her post antics after showing the way for most of the race. If breeding counts for anything, AQUITANIA is going to prove a mighty useful filly in a racing v-ay. She is by Light Brigade, out of Ata-lanta. The latter was an exceptionally fast mare and if her daughter has inherited any j of her speed she will bear watching. THE LEOPARD— FOOLSCAP— BROKEN TOY. The most likely winner of the concluding race on the card appears to be THE LEOPARD. This plater which races for John Lowe proved most consistent, while racing over the Jefferson Park course and if he races as kindly here will account for more than one purse. FOOLSCAP had a race Tuesday but his showing was a poor one, and he is capable of doing much better. With a heavy track in prospect, look for him to be much closer up at the finish. BROKEN TOY is in good form right now and if the going does not impede her speed too much think she can land in the three hole.
