WHITNEY FILLY ELIGIBLES Strong Representation in Valuable Lassie Stakes to Be Run at ■ Arlington Park. Whatever the strength of the stables of other horsefolk in two-year-old fillies may ■ be, the Whitneys will have strong representation in the revival at Arlington Park July 8 of the Lassie Stakes, five furlongs , and a half, the Arlington Park Jockey Clubs 0,000 special, for two-year-olds of the softer sex. And it is hard to tell now which of the three Whitney stables is . best equipped. Mrs. Helen Hay Whitneys smartest prospect on spring racing is Parry, a charmingly named daughter of Peter Pan and Fair Feint, which beat fifteen at the -first asking in an overnight race at Jamaica, April 20, and then whipped Straightlace, Ep, Suntica, Kadana and Crimson Rose for ,-700 in the Rosedale. These were dashes of • five furlongs. Polonaise trimmed her in the Fashion at Belmont Park, a dash of four furlongs and a half, but she might not have . liked straightaway racing. The other Green- " tree eligibles— Chinaberry, Love Offering, Delicacy and Rose Diamond — havent : obliged. | Brocado daughter of The Porter and Brocatelle, a sister of Toro, which Chicago racing folk remember vividly as the winner in 1928 of an American Derby and a Lincoln Handicap, has been more conspicuous in eastern racing so far than any other nomination of Mrs. John Hay Whitney, nee Mary Elizabeth Altemns, the popular daughter-in-law of the mistress of Greentree. She was beaten in the Fashion along with Parry, Pintail, Delicacy and some others that rate high in eastern racing, but she had scored twice previously and impressed. At Havre i de Grace in April, she trimmed fourteen fillies in a maiden race at four furlongs and . a half around a turn, and at Belmont Park ; she had whipped Foxiana, Straightlace, Re- : buff, Ep, Light Pam, General Advance and Sunny Seas at four furlongs and a half, j straightaway. The younger Mrs. Whitneys Other eligible, Rabbit Skin, daughter of , Bunting and Bonnie Carrie, has all her rac- , ing mileage ahead. Pintail, one of eight nominations of Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney, Mrs. Helen Hay Whitneys nephew by marriage, and Mrs. John Hay Whitneys cousin by marriage, as already indicated, was on» of the victims of the speed of Polonaise in the Fashion revival. But she had previously trimmed fourteen in a maiden race of four furlongs and a half, straightaway, at the big track. Pintail is a daughter of Pennant and Pan-tella. Teach Me, another, a daughter of Pennant and Initiate, she a sister or half-sister of Flags, Flagstaff, Whiskaway, Coronation, Panoply, Crocus and one or two other super-fliers, has scored twice. First off she beat ten maiden fillies at four furlongs and a half at Pimlico; then she went to Jamaica to whip Scion, Recompense, Mai Dee, Shaun Padraic and Adilenos at five furlongs. Like Parry, Teach Me is a smart mud runner.
