Twenty-six entries to the seven events were received Thursday from John M. Gaver, agent, who is at Red Bank, N. J., where the large establishment is in spring training under the direction of William Brennan, successor to the late James Rowe, Jr. Topping the nominations is that of Twenty Grand, the outstanding three-year-old of 1931. The St. Germans Bonus colt, which is expected to begin his 1932 campaign at the beautiful north side track, is a candidate for the Stars and Stripes and Arlington Handicaps, also the Arlington Gold Cup, each a 0,000 added race. Also in these events are the three-year-olds, Byzantine and Pro Bono, the latter a half-brother of Twenty Grand. Byzantine and Pro Bono are in the 0,000 added Classic, along with Curacao, Parry and Semaphore, giving Mrs. Whitney the largest numerical representation of any owner in the worlds richest three-year-old event. For the Arlington Oaks, open to three-year-old fillies, and the Arlington Matron Handicap, for three-year-olds and over, fillies and mares, Greentree has entered Parry and Beret, while for the Hyde Park Stakes, which "is for juveniles, it has entered no less than eight. Of this number the lone filly is Moppet, the sister to that extraordinary sprinter Polydor.
