* * i At Havre de Grace One Best Bet — PETER PETER — In the Fourth Race. a I in J a a j c c f ■ l i r i i i a z l I i J I , i ! ■ ! I I . J ■ | ; 1 ! I i I I - i Todays program at Havre de Grace calls 1 for three allowance races and four claiming affairs. The best field of the day is entered the Bayview Purse, the fourth race on the I card. Nine fit horses are entered and they • will show their wares over the one mile and sixteenth distance. The secondary attrac- I tion, the Glen Oaks Purse, brings a small I but %vell matched field to the post to try con- I elusions over the one mile and seventy yards distance, under allowances. The opening race, a two-year-old affair, at 1 four and one-half furlongs, attracted twelve starters, and it is an evenly matched band I that will face the barrier. CALM— NEVADA STOCK FARM STABLE ENTRY— LET A LONE. CALM is given the call over her oLponents in the first race, which appears to be the hardest race to figure. Her only two races ; were good and, as she is picking up two pounds over her last effort, will have to , race in her best form to beat this field. VIRADO and CARAVAN will carry the Nevada Stock Farm Stables colors and, as both won their last out, should prove the ones CALM will have to beat. LKTALONE lost close race to CARAVAN in his last start and, with the same weight up today, may prove dangerous company. He should have no trouble in getting third place. GLACIAL seems to be best of the others on present form. Dl-rOSIl ION— SCOTCH AND SODA— SWEEPESTA. The second offe; ing of the afternoon seems to be rather an open race. DEPOSITION has been gradually rounding to form in his last few races and we look for him to leave the maiden ranks today. SCOTCH AND SODA has been showing good morning trials and, should he race back to those efforts, will have no trouble in taking second place. SWEEPESTA raced against some gocd ones at Bowie, but seemed to be a little short. She may, however, find this company easier and, if away well, may lead all the way. SON AMI— ALEX WOODLIFFE— ZUKER. SON AMI seems to have the edge in the third race at the three-quarters distance. He was beaten by ALEX WOODLIFFE his last time out, but, with eight pounds off today, we look for him to reverse the decision. ALEX WOODLIFFE seems to be in great form at present and should furnish all the contention for the above mentioned. He has shown that he can carry high weight and should have no trouble holding second place safe from the others. ZUKER, fast horse when right, has not found his real form since arriving from Havana. He had two races at Bowie, which should have done him some good and, with any improvement, may get up in time for the short end of the purse. BRISTOL is dangerous at the weights. I 1 I • I I I 1 I ; , I PETER PETER— CROSSCO— FLY HAWK. Of the nine starters in the Bayview Purse PETER PETER appears much the best. He turned in two good races during the past Bowie meeting and seems to be in his best form. The distance and weight are in his favor today and we look for him to prove the best play of the card. CROSSCO figures to be a strong contender for, taking a line on his winning race at Bowie, in which he beat a good field, he can not be overlooked. FLY HAWK should be able to finish up with the leaders judging from the speed he showed in his last two starts. H. G. Bedwells LA MORTE may be able to cause the leaders some trouble. AFTERGLOW— VELLAS— SEN DE MEUR. For the winner of the Glen Oaks Purse we are selecting H. P. Whitneys AFTERGLOW. This good son of Pennant turned in a win over a classy field in his last start at Bowie. He needs but to duplicate that race to be home an easy winner today. VELLAS may make AFTERGLOW race at his best to win, for he seems to be in fine racing trim. He will take plenty of beating and we doubt if this field will be able to keep him out of the picture. SUN DE MEUR may be able to save the short end of the purse should he race in his best style. BLUE FLAG— FIRE FAIRY— ELOISE. BLUE FLAG, which has not won a race in some time, seems to be in a spot where he can register a victory. The distance of one mile and seventy yards is to his liking and, by dropping seven pounds from his last start, he looks like the logical selection. FIRE FAIRY showed a dull effort last time out, and that race should not be taken into consideration. At the weights today she is dangerous, and may prove the one BLUE FLAG will have to beat. ELOISE has shown to be consistent in her races and will be hard to keep out of the money. LUCIE ANN is back in good form and may surprise by beating this field to the wire. ROWLANDS REQUEST— HOROLOGE— KANDUIT. ROWLANDS REQUEST is well suited over the one mile and a sixteenth distance of the seventh number, and a race to his best form should find him the winner. His present form is good and he is well placed today with but 110 pounds to carry. HOROLOGE ran some good races at the Fair Grounds and, with some good morning trials to his credit, he has only to race in his best style to get up for second place. H. G. Bedwell has his horses ready and, as KANDUIT won two races at Bowie out of her four starts there, we look for her to be a dangerous contender. We would not be sur-I prised if she led all the way to the wire. »
