At Aurora AuroraOne One Best Bet LETTER SIX in the Seventh Race Mud runners have their inning again atv the Aurora oval the track by reason of the rains Wednesday leaving the going in a muddy condition and only those horses with a penchant for the footing are apt to be returned sucessful in the various events eventsTodays Todays card is given over entirely to the horses of the plater division each and every one of the seven races carded carrying the claiming clause What is perhaps the best race of the day in point of class of starters is the fifth over the mile distance This brings out a fair band of selling platers and they should furnish a good contest contestThere There are four races at a mile or over and this should in some way make up for the lack of quality in the starters There are two sprint numbers over the threequarters distance and limit fields will most likely make the issue in each event as there were seventeen entered for each race The two yearolds are asked to go fiveeighths of a mile and it is a cheap band that will be seen in action here herePOLLYMARA POLLYMARA BATHILDE SETH LETOY LETOYThe The opener looks like a favorable spot for POLLYMARA to prove a repeater She is good in any kind of going and her last effort repeated here would enable her to score without much difficulty BATHILDE SETH is said to be nearing top form and may be able to account for the place portion of the purse if she starts She is far down on the also eligible list LEVOY must be given another chance to make good and against this company should fare welL STRUT MISS LIZZIE holds a good chance PLAY HOUR should not be ignored I ITHE THE ABBOT REDSKIN MONASTERY MONASTERYIn In the second number THE ABBOT is given the call He is good in the going and is in his best form at the present time He has been meeting much better company than he meets here and we believe he is the class of this band REDSKIN is more or less consistent and if he elects to run his usual race may cause THE ABBOT some trouble MONASTERY is also a good mudrunner and should not have much difficulty in hold ¬ ing the others safe for the short end of the purse The race appears to be strictly be ¬ tween the three mentioned above with DOWN TOWN stacking up as next best bestCRISPIE CRISPIE SETH HAYESS CHOICE MAT HUNTER HUNTERIf If ever dropped into a soft spot CRISPIE SETH surely is today in the juvenile test Her races here to date have been far below her best form and against this company she should be able to win a purse She held hr own against some of the good ones at Tijuana and would only have to race in the same manner here to win HAYESS CHOICE is plainly second best and should be closest to CRISPIE SETH at the finish MAT HUNTER may be able to hold the others safe for third money PEEP O rates an outside chance chanceSHASTA SHASTA IRISH ZOYA NESTLE NESTLEThe The manner in which SHASTA IRISH raced her last time out was such as to suggest that she may be a hard one to beat in the fourth race today She can go the distance and track conditions matter little to her ZOYA was usually in the money at Havana and would only have to repeat her last race here to get the place money in this field NESTLE seems to be nearing her best form and if so should hold the others safe for third FORETOLD is liable to prove a surprise surprisePAULA PAULA SHAY DR LARRABEE PRINCE Til TIL In her present good form and her known ability to negotiate the going PAULA SHAY should be theone to register in the mile race of the fifth event She raced in her best style last time out and beat a fair band handily If she woujd repeat that effort to ¬ day believe she could add another score to her credit DR LARRABEE failed miser ¬ ably in his last start and that race should be ignored He was meeting much better company than himself and he plainly did not belong there Today should be a dif ¬ ferent story however and he looms as a dangerous rival for PAULA SHAY PRINCE Til Til may prove to be a real danger dangerSHINDY SHINDY FOOLSCAP THE ROLL CALL CALLThe The sixth is a hard race to pick the likely winner each of those entered holding about an equal chance However SHINDY is se ¬ lected to win on the strength of a recent good workout His races here to date have been poor but he is said to be ready for the issue now FOOLSCAP can go the dis ¬ tance and is a good mudrunner and may be able to earn the place portion of the purse THE ROLL CALL is about due for an im ¬ proved performance and may show to better advantage in this field than he has of late MART BUNCH should not be ignored INFANTE may prove dangerous dangerousLETTER LETTER SIX LITTLE AMMIE SINCERE SINCEREIf If a recent good workout counts for any ¬ thing LETTER SIX should be returned the easiestwinner of the day in the final event His recent races have not been much but he showed in his trial the other morning that he has again found his best speed and should beat this band easily LITTLE AMMIE rates as the danger and would be apt to prove too much for LETTER SIX if she raced back to her last winning effort SINCERE figures to hold the others safe for third money GUNSIGHT appears to have lost his winning form EAGER holds an outside chance
