♦ # Sweeps Selections At Havre de Grace g — ; J One Best Bet — OUT STEP — in the First Race. A typical off-day card is offered at Havre de Grace Monday, and few of the better horses will be seen under colors. Five claiming races and two maiden affairs comprise the program and platers will contest the issues. Perhaps the best field will measure strides in the first race, in which twenty juveniles have been entered to contest over the four and a half furlongs distance. Another promising race is the fifth, a claiming affair for three-year-olds, at a mile and seventy yards. Red Spider, which won two races for F. J. Kearns at the Bowie meeting, is the top weight of the race under 111 pounds. OUT STEP— FIRE FAIRY— UPPER CRUST. OUT STEP raced well in both of her starts at Bowie, and appears to have a decided edge here. The daughter of Theo. Cook picks up but a pound over her recent score and has defeated most of those opposed to her in this contest. On her recent form she seems to be the outstanding wager of the day. FIRE FAIRY/, a quick breaker, is well placed at the post and drops two pounds from her victory of last week. She should be in the picture. UPPER CRUST was twice defeated by OUT STEP at the Bowie track and will do well to share in the pursa division. TALLADEGA-JOnXXY JEWELL— BEAU GALANT. TALLADEGA, which showed consistent speed at the Jefferson Park meeting, drops two pounds from his second to Orestes II. and meets cheaper company here. This fellow was fast enough to defeat Mark Master and Ten Sixty at New Orleans and those horses appear better than anything in this field. A good ride should see him home in front. JOHNNY JEWELL, was short in his only start at the Bowie course, but was well up for half a mile and should be in better condition with that effort in back of him. He worked three-eighths in :38 flat Saturday morning, and may go well. BEAU GALANT is well placed and figures strongly on his Miami form. PYGMALION— GRIERSON— BLUE DARTER. PYGMALION, a colt of some quality, is making his first start since last August at Saratoga, but appears ready to turn the trick at the first asking. He worked three-quarters in 1 :17 handily, Friday morning, and looks fit and ready. This son of Leonardo II. raced against the best of the juveniles last year and, although he failed to finish in the money in three starts, his effort back of Valorous and Iaddie was worthy of favorable comment. GRIERSON will favor the five and a half furlong distance more than the longer route of his last out. and should be in the money. A fast breaker, he has plenty of early speed and may prove hard to overtake. BLUE DARTER, which will bear the Whitney silks, has never lived up to his early promise, but several of his races in Maryland last fall were fair, and he may head the others home. PAT McGEE — GILDED EASEL — SALUTATION. PAT McGEE has not faced the starting gate since the Belmont Park meeting Inst spring, when he finished fourth to Sankarl and other fleet ones. This fellow is held in high regard by his stable connections, however, and looks the best of this band of* maidens. He stepped three-quarters in 1 :16% Saturday morning and. although he was driving, he showed good action and appeared fit. GILDED EASEL is the one to fear. The Glen Riddle filly worked a handy five-eighths in 1 :03% in her latest trial and has wintered well. Several of her efforts as a juvenile occasioned favorable criticism and the weight should not bother her. SALUTATION raced with fair success on the Canadian circuit last summer and may finish in the money. TIPPERARY MARY— RED SPIDER— OURIEDA. TIPPERARY MARY drops six pounds from her recent score and is racing over the same distance. The Swenke filly has the speed when in the running mood and should go well under her light impost. RED SPIDER has won two of his last three starts, but he picks up nine pounds over his last triumph and he will not have his favorite soft track. Kearns has him in good condition, however, and he should be well up all the way. OURIEDA has a high burst of early speed, but seldom holds on long enough to be dangerous at this distance. She is in light, however, and may make some trouble. KOSCIUSKO— HARRY CARROLL— JIST. KOSCIUSKO, which has been tiring near the finish of his longer races, should find this distance in his favor. He has plenty of early speed and it is thought that he can j take the track at the start and stay in front throughout. The weight of 110 pounds should not bother him and the same brand of speed that he displayed in his Bowie efforts will win for him here. HARRY CARROLL raced well in his last two races and should be close up at the finish. He is most uncertain, however, and seldom holds his form for any length of time. JUST is in under the feather of 100 pounds and should be among the first three at the wire. This mare has been improving and may surprise. NORTH BREEZE— CHICKVALE— LANOIL. NORTH BREEZE will find the local track more favorable than the heavy Bowie course. Although he is a slow starter, the mile and a sixteenth distance should afford him ample time to find his racing legs and he appears to have the edge. CHICKVALE was n t suited at the six and a half furlongs of his last out, but finished fast enough to warrant the belief that he will go well here. Ha worked three-quarters in 1 :17 Saturday morning and was under restraint. LANOIL looks the best of the otheis and should shire in the purse. HARLAN drops five pounds from his last out and figures to be well up all the way.
