At Washington Park One Best Bet BOLIVAR BOND In the Seventh Race With the American Derby now history, the racing at Washington Park reverts to the everyday sort of sport, with as fine a card as could be imagined for a Monday down for decision today. The Jackson Park Handicap, for three-year-olds, over the three-quarters distance, shares the spotlight with the Vogue Purse, given over to the fillies and mares exclusively, at one mile. The Stanleigh Purse, supposedly the secondary attraction, may prove to be the best race of the day, for a fine field has been entered. The remaining races are of the claiming variety and all but the final number will most likely see limit fields going to the post. Two-year-old maidens hook up in the first, while the second and third are sprint affairs, at three-quarters, for the otder horses. AMBITIOUS PUG SCARLET STAR. Of the maiden two-year-olds which hook up in the opener AMBITIOUS appears to be much the best and, barring ill racing luck, he should romp home the easiest kind of a winner. All of his races here have been good ones and he is just about ready at this time for a winning effort. PUG showed an improved performance his last time out and, taking a line through that effort, he is given second call. SCARLET STAR failed to show much in her races at Aurora, but since coming here she has been training well and only has to race back to her trials to land some part of the coin. NINETEEN SIXTY; may be a little the best of the others. BIRD BEHAVE OMNIA HIGH JOT. - Figuring that BIRD BEHAVE Is sure to improve over his recent races we are picking him to come down in front in the second offering. The limit number is almost certain to start here and it may be that the luckiest horse will be the winner, for there is bound to be some jamming soon after the start. BIRD BEHAVE is not a fast starter but, if given clear sailing, is capable of coming from behind and winning. OMNIA turned in one of his good races his last start and, if that showing was no fluke, he should go well enough today to give the winner the most contention. HIGH JOY rates as next best. PORTO DE ORO MARVEL DOLORES LADY LURA. PORTO DE ORO will be making his first start since the Jefferson Park meeting, but, according to all reports, is ready for the issue and should turn the trick in the third number. He is a fast one when fit and has 1 beaten better company than he meets here. MARVEL DOLORES has been more or less consistent of late in landing in the money, though failing to win, and should be good enough to account for the place portion of the purse in this event. LADY LURA only has to race in the manner which marked her last winning effort to hold the others safe for the short end of the coin. SCOTLAND FOREVER was racing well at Tijuana, but may need a race or two to fit him for his best. However, on past races, he rates a good chance. THE HEATHEN LEDGE HENRY HORNER. The Jackson Park Handicap, run as the fourth event, appears a likely spot for THE HEATHEN to register a. handy, victory. This ones recent races have been fairly good whenthe class of his opponents is taken into consideration. LEDGE has shown worthy performances in the past and has a defeat, when backed into favoritism, to live down; the dark one. HENRY HORNER looks good for the minor award: CHAIRMAN should need a race here. Tab the last mentioned, fellow for future reference. FLATTERY DIMPLE DUNKIE THIRTEEN SIXTY. One of a six-horse field carded as the Vogue Purse, at one mile, FLATTERYS chances appear second to none. This one is evidently better than rated and fairly good returns are a possibility. DIMPLE DUNKIE, racing to his last, should be good enough to earn second place. THIRTEEN SIXTY is the dark one and is worthy of attention as a winning possibility. SILVER SONG is not in best form at present. MINER YUS PRINCE RONALD FLAGSHIP. Taking a line on past performances of the seven entries in the Stanleigh Purse, sixth on the program and carded at one mile, one uncovers a likely winner in the Green Briar Stables imported colt MINERVUS. This one calls for speed, as demonstrated in his races against real good ones. PRINCE RONALD is a long shot of merit for second place and may press the eventual winner for the major , portion of the purse. FLAGSHIP is not far from a winning effort, and todays race should serve to fit him for the near future. BOLIVAR BOND BURNT STARBRIGIIT. An endurance test at one mile and three- sixteenths is the attraction in the seventh . stanza. In this BOLIVAR BOND, a consistent plater, is selected as the one best investment of the day. Present fit form and a known fondness for distance forces this conclusion. BURNT, a successful, highly regarded one in his last, figures as easily second best in todays event. STARBRIGHT, racing to his last, should be good enough to earn the show portion. MOSES is an- outsider of some merit.
