The spring meeting at Aurora is rapidly drawing to a close Monday is the semi ¬ final day with the Decoration Day Handicap serving as the beadliner This is a test of a mile and an eighth with a purse of 3000 This is the largest purse that has been of ¬ fered during the meeting and it has attracted the best of the handicap division quartered here hereThe The consistent Balboa has been assigned top weight with Florence Mills and Jack Alexander next in order The others get in with light imposts and a fine contest should be the outcome outcomeMore More rain visited the track Friday night and Saturday morning and any hopes for a fast track for the final day or the meeting went glimmering as a result It can truly be said that the Exposition Park Jockey Club had more than its share of rain but for all of it good sport was furnished each and every day dayThe The racing scene shifts to Washington Park next Wednesday and it is hoped that better weather will be encountered than was the lot of Aurora AuroraWHO WHO KNOWS ME HIGH JOY SENOB SENOBWHO WHO KNOWS ME appears to be the best play in the opener a threequarters dash He has been improving with every race and his last one was particularly good He only tired in the final stages after leading for the entire race With that race serving as a tightener we look for him to score in this number HIGH JOY can do much better than her only race here indicated and we expect her to give a much better perform ¬ ance today SENOR on best races is capable of holding the others safe for third money moneyMY MY VALET TOPANGO TAMALE DICK DICKThe The veteran MY VALET shapes up as the best play in the second number another dash of threequarters and stands out as the most likely winner of the day He has had but one race since arriving here and that was only a fair showing Since then he has been turning in some fine moves and only has to race back to his trials to score with ease TOPANGO on best form rates as second choice and should give a good account of himself in this field TAMALE DICK has been training satisfactorily and may be good enough to land the short end of the purse FLORA LE BRETON has been racing fairly well of late lateELIZABETH ELIZABETH SETH MEDDLING SETH KATHE KATHEELIZABETH ELIZABETH SETH has found her best form lately and she should run her string of victories to three in a row in the third offer ¬ ing This is over the shorter distance of five and a half furlongs while her other two wins were achieved over the longer distance of j threequarters and n mile but she is pos ¬ sessed of plenty of early speed and should not mind the shorter trip MEDDLING SETH I was winner of his last start and figures to give the winner the most trouble Jiere KATHE should do for third money SLJGO BRANCH is not without a chance chanceQUIN QUIN CHIN FIGHTING COOK LOVE PIBATE PIBATEThe The fourth at five and a half furlongs should see QUIN CHIN proving a repeater and adding another score to her credit She has won her last two races so easily that it is hard to figure how she is going to be beaten today FIGHTING COOK won his last race but it was against a cheap field and do not look for him to do it again in this company However he may be able to land the place portion of the purse LOVE PIRATE is easily best of the others and only has to race in his best style to earn third money SETHS PREMIUM is nearing win ¬ ning form formBALBOA BALBOA FLORENCE MILLS JACK ALEXANDER ALEXANDERThe The Decoration Tay Handicap is bound to result in a close finish with the prevailing weights but BALBOA the top weight should pick up his impost and beat this company He is good in any kind of going and he can pack weight and win FLORENCE MILLS gets in with 108 pounds second top weight but that is no burden for her and she should give BALBOA the most contention JACK ALEXANDER with three wins in a row is going to be hard to beat in his present fine form and at the weights today is apt to prove the real danger AREGAL a recent arrival from Kentucky is an excellent mud runner TBEASUBEB NOSE DIVE LADY BBAXTED BBAXTEDThe The sixth is over the more popular distance of a mile and seventy yards and here TREA ¬ SURER is selected to come home in front His last start saw him racing in much im ¬ proved form over a previous race and if he improves any over that last race should be good enough to win NOSE DIVE does not call for much on recent races but has been working well and may do better today LADY BRAXTED is making her first ap ¬ pearance at this course and she would only have to race in her best Miami form to get some part of the coin LITTLE AMMIE may prove troublesome troublesomeWAPONOCA WAPONOCA GILMORE DELPHI DELPHIThe The manner in which WAPONOCA raced racediu thatlift iu his last start was such to suggest that lift may be a hard one to beat in the mile mileand and seventy yards of the concluding event eventHis His threequartersdistance last race was over the threequarters distance but he has gone the distance of oftodays GILMOREis todays race before and won GILMORE is shouldb in his best form at the present and should b the one to give WAPONOCA the most mostj argument DELPHI only has to repeat his late DONNASANTA race to again land in the money DONNA SANTA figures well up CLAPPER may mayI prove troublesome
