GREENTREE STABLE COMING Main Division of Mrs. Payne Whitneys Powerful Establishment to Race at Arlington Park. For the first time in the history of Arlington Park, the powerful main division o Mrs. Payne Whitneys Greentree Stable will be represented by full strength during the thirty days of racing at the northside course, commencing on June 26. Trainer William Brennans request for accommodations for twenty-two horses has been received by managing director Roy Carruthers. Hitherto, members of the chief division of the eastern establishment only were sent to Arlington Park to fill stakes engagements, but this year trainer Brennan plans to bring his entire stable here some days in advance of the opening in order that the Greentree horses will be at their best for the inaugural events. Last year the pink and black striped silks were carried at Arlington only by Parry in the Arlington Oaks and. the year befora Twenty Grand was the single representative, running in the Classic. Both finished third. Heading the Greentree band will be Dynastic and Jungle King, probable candidates for the 5,000 Classic. The former has not been to the post this season, haying been delayed by a slight illness in his early training, but reports from the East say he is fast rounding to form. This son of Su-premus and the famous mare, Chacolet, was a fast finishing and close third in the rich Belmont Futurity last fall after having won the Champagne Stakes. He was one of the several bargain purchases at the Saratoga sales the year previous, Mrs. Whitney paying but ,000 for him. Jungle King proved himself one of the best three-year-olds racing in Florida during the past winter and finished second to Charley O. in the Florida Derby. He is a son of St. Germans, sire of Twenty Grand and Leopardess. The latter, like the dam of Dynastic, was a high class racemare. Other older horses to be brought here by Brennan are Easy Day, Welcome Gift and Parry. The remainder are juveniles including several candidates for the 0,000 Arlington Futurity and the 0,000 Lassie Stakes, among them Earnings, a half-brother to Twenty Grand; Barkatine, a half-sister to Curacao and Fancy Feathers, a half-sister to St. Brideaux. Accompanying the stable to Chicago will be jockey Sylvio Coucci, the sensational young Italian rider who made a pleasing impression on local racing fans here last summer when he drove Gusto to victories in the Classic and American Derby and wa3 a contender for riding honors during the Arlington meeting.
