At Washington Park One Best Bet LADY B RAX TED In the Seventh Race., Yeste-days racing marked the half-way mark in the Illinois Jockey Clubs meeting. All things taken into consideration, the meeting has proved to be a huge success and the same good racing is in store for the patrons of the sport during the remaining days. Thursdays card finds limit-size fields named to contest in the fhst and second races, with horses of equal caliber named to contest in each of these events. The outstanding number is the fourth race, at one mile and an eighth, a handicap affair, bringing together some fairly good ones. Second and third in place of importance are the third and fifth races, both allowance events. In the order named. SIKON JIM BRIDGER NINETEEN SIXTY. The first race should develop a nip-and-tuck finish, with SINON gaining the decision. In his only two starts this colt has shown to good advantage in the company of good ones. JIM BRIDGER. which raced last at Aurora, showed to good advantage on that occasion, finishing second to Indra. A place ticket here should pay well. NINETEEN SIXTY, by reason of some fair performances at Churchill Downs, has been highly regarded by the speculators here, but thus far he has failed to reward his backers. He appears to be a dark horse in this race. AMBITIOUS and DIVOT are two which figure to show to advantage. BIG SWEEP BRUNSWICK BROOMSTER, BIG SWEEP, in the -second race, should have things all his own way. True, he is to carry 123 pounds, but is of the type that can carry weight and yet show to the same good advantage. BRUNSWICK should profit by his last race here, to an extent to enable him to secure the place. BROOMSTER has proven a useful asset for any mans stable and, if a surprise is furnished, this one should be the one to do it. DOLL.Y BAY and NEW BEAUTY rate outside chances. RIVAL PIGEOTf WING II. DARK PHANTOM. RIVAL, on the strength of his last good second to Cudgeller, is given the call in the third stanza. On that occasion, he was lghtly regarded and should be held in the same esteem by the wise man today, as some speedy -ones comprise the field. PIGEON WING II. is fast and should furnish the keenest of competition. DARK PHANTOM in Miami form, would rate a winning chance, but should need a race after her layoff. However, her show prospects are good. PRINCESS PAN showed some sterling performances in the long ago and is handed to those who like the long shot. SMILING GUS DEVON SPANISH LAY. The fourth race is styled the Middle Classes Handicap and in it is found a good investment, SMILING GUS. With distance and track to his liking, little opposition is seen for this fellow. DEVON is in good shape at present and rates here as the contender. SPANISH LAY is the dark horse of the outfit. This one demonstrated a decided liking for the going at this track in her races last season. FLAGSHIP should go fairly welL DAMOSEL PATRICIA MARIAN LEDGE. An evenly-matched band of three-year-olds is the attraction In the fifth race, at seven-eighths of a mile, out of the chute. DAMOSEL, by reason of her victory over Barbara In a preceding race, is given the calL with PATRICIA MARIAN rating as the contender. The latter is a lengshot of merit. LEDGE Is the one that may attract the most attention from the speculators and he must be reckoned with. Little is seen to menace the finish as indicated above. MARSHALL UEY THE WIRE BUN-THORNE. MARSHALL KEY, in the sixth race at one mile beat some fast ones in his last race at this track. This one has proved himself an honest racer, capable in a field of such as encountered today. THE WIRE, a long shot winner in his last is a possibility for the place, and good returns would be had on a place ticket in that event. BUNTHORNE is dropping considerable weight and looms as the dark one of the field. SPEEDOMETER merits consideration. LADY BRAXTED BOLIVAR BOND MAGIC LIGHT. The one best of the day is seen in the seventh race, a distance affair of one mile and an eighth. This is the imported filly LADY BRAXTED, which, in a preceding start, failed to show to advantage. Pass up that one and hop aboard today, as todays event is the spot for an easy win. BOLIVAR BOND is of the useful sort, and easily rates as the-contender. MAGIC LIGHT, a long shot de luxe, should earn the show. MOSES has yet to run his race here, and may be expected to furnish an upset In the near future.
