] ! . , , CLIPSETTA STAKES ELIGIBLE 1 Betty Farrell, Daughter of Sweep P Park, Winner of 1924 Renewal — Bradley Owner of Filly. LATONIA, Ky., June 12.— A daughter of a a Clipsetta Stakes winner will have an opportunity of repeating the feat of her dam J in the forty-ninth renewal of the Stakes, one of the six fixtures to be decided at J Latonia during the thirty-one days of racing, ?• starting Saturday, June 27. This filly is in the stable of E. R. Bradley, i- and was christened Betty Farrell. A daughter of the speedy Sweep Park, and by y the great sire North Star III., she gave it every indication of being one of the best of the Bradley two-year-olds at Idle Hour ir Farm this spring. Her dam. Sweep Park, defeated Little le Visitor, Donna Santa and others in the 1924 !4 Clipsetta Stakes, and was considered the le best of the western two-year-olds. Tom m Hayes was training the filly, and encouraged E. Gay Drake, then the owner, to send her East for the Belmont Futurity. She shipped ;d in perfect condition, but became unruly and id high strung the day of the race. It was a a large field to face the late Mars Cassidy that day, and after being shuffled back soon *n after the start, she failed to improve her position. The veteran Mack Garner went r East to ride her, and after dismounting ig informed trainer Hayes that she was "ready 2 to run all the way, but I could not find racing room." Drake later sold her to Colonel Bradley. d- This is her second foal. Her first went nt silghtly amiss last fall and did not have ve an opportunity of showing the speed she le displayed in the early spring. Sweep Park is a daughter of Sweep and * Floral Park. The latter was named for the little village which sets back of the three-quarters e- post at Belmont Park. She was a good consistent mare, although never considered n- in the first flight. Betty Farrell demonstrated during the he spring trials that she carries all of the good 3d points of her sire and dam, and if she shows the same class in the Clipsetta that her er mother did in 1924, Colonel Bradley may ay have a Clipsetta Stakes winner in his barn. n.
