In its comparatively brief history, the Classic has assumed ranking with Americas greatest races for three-year-olds, as its first running in 1929 was taken by E. R, Bradleys Blue Larkspur, its second by William Woodwards Gallant Fox. and its third by Albert C. Bostwicks Mate. Blue Larkspur and Gallant Fox were champions of their respective years, and last summer Mate defeated the 1931 champion, Twenty Grand, in the third running of the rich mile and a quarter special. Officials of Chicagos finest race course are firmly convinced this years Classic will lack none of the lustre that attended the previous runnings of the race, and when the nominations are compiled after March 15 the names of all the prominent juveniles of the 1931 season should be found enrolled. Major Louis Arnold Beard, manager of Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitneys breeding and racing interests and one of Arlingtons honorary stewards, already has announced that Top Flight, unbeaten juvenile champion last season, will make the Classic one of her major objectives.
