Fifteen fleet sprinters have been entered in the Hialeah Highweight Handicap of seven furlongs, which occupies the principal position on the brilliant program offered by the Miami Jockey Club at Hialeah Park Saturday. This set, drawn from the best horses stationed on the grounds, should provide a keenly fought contest for the week-end program, which is expected to draw the largest crowd of the meeting. John J. Curtis Flying Heels, winner of the Inaugural Handicap and top weight under 140 pounds, will attempt to make amends for his failure in the Miami Beach Handicap last Saturday. The swift son of Flying Ebony was never in better condition, reports the veteran trainer J. Simon Hsaley, and is willing to concede that much weight to the more lightly weighted opposition. Lightning Bolt, winner of the 1931 Florida Derby for Mrs. John Hay Whitney, young eastern sportswoman, will have many supporters. The son of Wrack and Margie C. indicated that he was approaching peak form in his second to Repentance in the Miami Beach Handicap, and tomorrow trainer J. W. Healy expects that his charge will turn in his first victory of the winter campaign. Continued on twenty-first page. FLYING HEELS TO? WEIGHT Continued from first page. George D. Widener will be represented by an entry, the four-year-old Panetian and the three-year-old Evening, while F. E. Kraft has entered his own Hibala and Rudolph Spreckels Judge Schilling.

Carreauds Kincsen.
