Milams Lacks Hit, Charlie Bergin and Bearinez showing to best advantage. Hodgson was sent a mile at an easy pace and seemed to satisfy his owner-trainer by negotiating the distance in 1 :4! . It was the first gallop over the route at anything like a running gait that Hodgson has been sent this spring. The son of Hodge — Kmbcllish went the quarter in :232-,, three-eighths in ::!R, half mile in :3l and the three-quarters in 1:1* NOT ON IHK PROGRAM. Trainer A.
