SARADA NAMED FOR CLASSIC Promising Son of Sir Gallahad III. to Carry F. A. Griffiths Colors in Arlingtons Rich Race. The latest nomination to the 5,000 Classic, three-year-old attraction on the Arlington Park stakes program, is that of Sarada, which was received by the Arlington Park Jockey Club from Frederick A. Griffith, owner of the colt and a Palmyra, N. Y., sportsman. Sarada, a son of Sir Gallahad III., which sired a three-year-old champion in Gallant Fox and a handicap star in Gallant Sir, was a prominent candidate for the Kentucky Derby until the morning of the race, when he suffered a slight illness. Trainer William Mulholland has the colt in splendid condition once more and informed Arlington officials he believed Sarada would make a serious bid for the Classic. The Sir Gallahad III. colt compiled a fine record in the juvenile racing last season, his principal victory occurring in the Spalding Lowe Jenkins Handicap at Laurel. He also finished third in the Sanford Stakes at Saratoga and the Walden Handicap at Pimlico and displayed a wonderful performance in the Pimlico Futurity, after being virtually left at the post. Sarada ran third in his first start this year and then defeated a good band of three-year-olds in his only other effort.
