At Washington Park ParkOne One Best Bet SMILING GUS In the Sixth Race A fine program featuring the second run ¬ ning of the ITinois Oaks is down for de ¬ cision today at Washington Park and one of the largest crowds of the present day meet ¬ ing is expected to be on hand The main attraction is for threeyearold fillies ex ¬ clusively and a crack field will parade to the post for this event the good Mary Jane being among those entered enteredThe The Lake Shore Handicap with a purse of 51500 and over the onemile distance is the secondary offering and the class of con ¬ testants for this number would do credit to any racing card Such fleet ones as Sun AJtos Flagstaff Banton Cudgeller and Jack Alexander among others will strive for the honor of winning and a tiptop contest is expected expectedTwoyearolds Twoyearolds will be seen in action in the Kenmore Purse first on the program while another good field makes up the Nip and Tuck Purse to be offered as the third thirdIndications Indications are for fair weather and a fast track and if such Is the case some new track records are likely to be established establishedISOSTAST ISOSTAST SEVENTEEN SIXTY FAIR LARK LARKISOSTASY ISOSTASY is given the call over SEVEN ¬ TEEN SIXTY iri the Kenmore Purse He is a colt of the first class and has been burn ¬ ing up the track in his morning trials of late He has a tough one to down in the Gardner representative but he should be able to turn the trick The latter was win ¬ ner of his last start but he did not beat the sort of company he is meeting today though he put up a good race FAIR LARK came into her own her last time out and will bear watching today if she dis ¬ plays the same brand of speed POLITA should show to better advantage over the fast track trackBIG BIG SWEEP PRINCESS PAN JACK BAUER BAUERThe The second looks like a favorable spot for BIG SWEEP to earn the major portion of the purse This is over the threequarters distance and brings to the post a limit field of starters BIG SWEEP is a fast breaker and this should be to his advantage in the large field He is in his best form at the present time and has beaten this kind before RED PENNANT is given second considera ¬ tion and he only has to race in his best style to be the one to chase BIG SWEEP home JACK BAUER is gradually getting into form and may be the one to land the short end of the purse KUM KALESSI rates an outside chance chanceSIXTY SIXTY CUDGELLER RIVAL The Nip and Tuck Purse should result in a contest such as its name implies At this writing it appears to be a close fit between SIXTY and CUDGELLER with RIVAL rating close up The former however has been turning in some fine races over the Ken ¬ tucky tracks and may prove too much for CUDGELLER The Bedwell racer is a tough one to beat in his present form and he is bound to be close up when the numbers are hung up RIVAL has reached top form and as such is mighty tough company FAIR I I I WIND may race in improved style today His last start over the Churchill Downs course was not so good goodMARY MARY JANE FLATTERY DAMOSEL DAMOSELThe The Ashland and Kentucky Oaks winner MARY JANE is possibly the best three yearold filly in these parts and how she is going to be beaten in th Illinois Oaks is hard to figure She is to pack top weight by reason of her two other stake victories but a race to her best form should see her adding this fixture to her credit FLAT ¬ TERY the J N Camden representative has improved immensely since racing over this course and may cause MARY JANE some trouble DAMOSEL took a good band into camp her last start and on that showing must be given next preference here KRICK is always dangerous HANDY MANDY finished second to MARY JANE in the Kentucky Oaks and gets quite a weight con ¬ cession today but we do not look for her to trim the latter in her present fine form formSUN SUN ALTOS JACK ALEXANDER SMILING GUS GUSThe The good SUN ALTOS must be given the call in the Lake Shore Handicap He is to pack top weight in the race 115 pounds but that is light weight for him and a race to his best style should see him getting down in front JACK ALEXANDER with four wins in succession is in his best form at the present and is the one SUN ALTOS has to beat to make victory certain He is favor ¬ ably weighted with 110 pounds and is bound to give a good account of himself SMILING GUS turned in a winning trip his last time out and that same effort today should get him some part of the purse BANTON shares the honor of carrying top weight with SUN ALTOS and he may prove a tough one to down downSMILING SMILING GUS HOPELESS GEORGE DE JIAR JIARSMILING SMILING GUS only has to repeat his last winning effort to account for todays sixth offering That last race of his was a decided improvement over previous starts but he showed plenty of gameness in winning and gets the call here HOPELESS met with defeat last time out after winning three his day and a better effort is looked for from him today GEORGE DE MAR may be able to hold the others safe for the show end of the purse ST VALENTINE is always dan ¬ gerous and may prove a tough one to beat beatSCAMFATTAY SCAMFATTAY ERLA LEE IL TREAS ¬ URER URERThe The goodnight tilt is over the longer dis ¬ tance of a mile an an eighth with a good band of the better grade of selling platers making the issue Taking a line through the last race run by SCAMPAWAY he rates a fine chance of winning ERLA LEE II is always close up and her usual effort should find her closest to the winner today TREAS ¬ URER is good enough to land some part of the purse and he would not surprise by win ¬ ning DUTCH GIRL is said to be nearing winning form EXTRA EDITION may need a few races to fit him for his best
