ARLINGTON PARK ATTRACTS French Lick Stable, H. P. Headley and Everglade Stable Make Stall Reservations. ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, 111., May 22.— Playdale, winner of the Ravinia and Lake View Claiming Stakes at Arlington Park last summer, will again head the French Lick Springs Stable of Thomas D. Taggart when this years meeting at the North Side course opens June 26, according to word received today by the Arlington Park Jockey Club from trainer Bryant Ott. The French Lick ace is expected by rac- I ing experts to develop into another Plucky Play. This son of My Play did not attain the heights until he was a four-year-old, and trainer Ott believes his My Play colt, now four years of age, is due for a better season than ever. He will be nominated for the Stars and Stripes and Arlington Handicaps, the 0,000 added features for older horses on the Arlington Park program. Hal Price Headley, whose stable has been successful in Arlington racing for several years, will make another bid for prize money this year. He has requested accommodations for fifteen horses, including his crack three-year-old filly, Technique. Sherill Ward, trainer of the Everglades Stable, plans to bring nine horses to the North Side track late next month. This establishment, the owners of which are John i S. Ward and Fred Burton, the latter of I Chicago, owns the smart juvenile filly Wise Daughter, which won the Pimlico Nursery Stakes, and Dartle, which was victorious in the colt division of the Hialeah Nursery Stakes. An eastern stable coming to Arlington for the thirty-day meeting, is the Linton Farms establishment owned by George M. Seglm of New York, who has requested quarters for ten horses, including Flagstone, Port-den and Cutie Face.
