Should a fast course prevail on Saturday I for the running of the Thomas Curran Me- morial Handicap, the ,000 added feature to j be decided at Washington Park, a big field i of the best colts and geldings shown in the J West this year will be seen in action. The prospective starters will come from the following: I Suns Son Easter Time ; Band Time Anthony Wayne Dyak Cathop Barashkova Prince Hotspur Gay Prince Adobe Post ; Cold Check Proteus Texas Knight Liberty Limited Tellico Judge Primrose Prince Fox Proteus and the Three Ds Stock Farm pair, Texas Knight and Liberty Limited, j likely will rule choices in this race. No doubt the Dixiana Farm pair, Easter Time and Band Time, good High Time colts, j trained by Clyde Van Dusen, will have a : strong following. Barashkova, bay gelding owned by Lon Jones of Louisville, may cut a figure in the running of this fixture. This speedy youngster earned brackets a few days ago. His performance stamped him a real top-notcher. Mr. Jones considers his chances to win the . Curran Memorial with Barashkova extra . good. Proteus, son of Infinite — Our Option owned by Antonie Pelleteri of New Orleans, is sanguine that his colt will be returned the winner. Proteus is a double stakes win- ner, having scored in the Idle Hour Farm Stakes at Lexington and the Bashford Manor at Churchill Downs. Proteus is a handsome colt and has been going great in his preparation for the Curran Memorial. Adobe Post, which on one occasion de- feated Proteus, may show a decided im-. provement when he goes in Saturdays Continued on second page. THOMAS CURRAN MEMORIAL Continued from first page. stake. Adobe Post is a nice gelding. His past record warrants serious consideration for him. Joe Leiters Prince Hotspur will have the riding services of E. James. Prince Hotspur is a strapping colt and rates at the top with his competitors. James W. Parrish, Midway, Ky. banker, whose filly Alyssum won the Illinois Oaks at long odds last Saturday, may have something to say in reference to the division of the spoils with his High Time colt Cold Check. Texas Knight and Liberty Limited, Sir Gallahad III. colts, will wear the colors of the Three Ds Stock Farm. C. C. Van Meters Tellico, a colt highly considered as a champion in Kentucky last spring, but which has been a victim of a disqualification and ill-judged rides, is a sure starter in the stake. He may go far toward redeeming himself should the course be fast. _. -_ .
