FIELD FOR ABERDEEN STAKES Large and Imposing Array of Baby Racers to Meet in ,500 Race at Havre Wednesday. HAVRE DE GRACE, Md., April 22. The largest field of two-year-olds ever to parade in the ,500 Aberdeen is due to fight it out in the twenty-third running of the four and one-half furlongs sprint on Wednesday. Present indications are that at least twenty horses will strive for the Harford Agricultural and Breeders Associations biggest two-year-old test. This will mean the elimination of the stall starting gate, as the mechanical contraption can only accommodate fourteen horses. The race will produce a meeting between Billie Bane, swiftest two-year-old to race last winter in Texas, and Deliberator, considered the "ace" of those performing in Florida. However, these youngsters will have to show vast impovement; that is, if they want to head off the swift youngsters due to be turned loose by A. G. Vanderbilt, C. V. Whitney, Bomar Stable, Mrs. Walter M. Jeffords, Brookmeade Stable and others. Interviews with horsemen bring to light the fact that the following two-year-olds are due to be entered for Wednesdays race: H. T. Archibalds" Black Mistress, Bomar Stables Beth Bon, Brookmeade Stables Pa-ralda and Delphinium, E. K. Brysons High Santa, Everglade Stables Deliberator, Fox-catcher Farms Fluton, T. D. Grimes, Billie Bane, H. H. Hectors Wise Duke, Mrs. W. M. Jeffords Golden Hind and Sweet as Sugar, W. S. Kilmers Beauf lower, F. S. Pages James City, Edward F. Seagrams Santan, A. G. Vanderbilts Postage Due and Winter Sport, Mrs. W. W. Vaughans Knight Warrior, Mrs. L. Viaus Conquer, P. M. Walkers Lady Warwick, Warm Stables Drawn Sword, and C. V. Whitneys Savings and Zuni. The time record of :53 for the race is held by a quartet of horses. They are Single Foot, 1924; Rock Man, 1925; Vander Pool, 1930, and Bonanza, 1933.
