F. Seagrams Stand Pat and | c Fred M. Algers Azucar will attract most of f l the play, but there are several among the e c field that are capable of making the contest t interesting under their light imposts. Sa- ,- f bula, a stablemate of Azucar, is in the mile e I I 1 and a sixteenth race with only ninety-four r i i pounds and if she turns in one of her best t 1 races it will be her instead of Azucar Stand d Pat will have to beat. No rider was named for Azucar this morn- i- £ ing and it may be that Alex Wilson will II reserve the Santa Anita Handicap winner r for the Detroit Challenge Cup to be run a a i 1 week hence. ] In the event he goes postward, Azucar will 11 i carry the top burden of 120 pounds. Stand d 1 Pat comes next with 118 pounds and as he e i i has conquered the star of California racing g both times they met here, he is sure to be e j i the favorite. ■ A new threat will enter the local handi- l" . cap picture in C. A. Pecks West Main. He • j gets in at 113 pounds and Anthony Pelleteri T1 did not ship the horse here unless he be- ;" j , lieved he had a wonderful chance of taking i j j down the major portion of the rich prize, s- j I j West Mains package is one more than that l* j i ] assigned Mrs. C. R. Cranes Ladfield, and d then comes Sun Portland with 107 pounds. The Sun Briar colt, which finished second d . j ] I to Roman Soldier in the Detroit Derby last . Saturday; I. J. Collins Paradisical, and Mrs. | . A. J. Abels St. Moritz will represent the i , I three-year-old brigade. St. Moritz is the • I I . lightweight of the field with ninety-two | pounds. j Our Count, which was graduated from the I i 1 claiming ranks here last spring, Rip Van . I j Winkle, Bahamas and Shady Well, the lat-3 j ter a stablemate of Stand Pat, complete the e I I field. , West Main, St. Moritz and Our Count , : ■ breezed half miles each this morning and d | Sun Portland, Shady Well and Bahamas , were limited to three-eighths gallops. West 3t j j Main and St. Moritz were timed in :52 and d | | Our Count clicked it off in :53%. Bahamas IS | j sped over three-eighths in :37%, Sun Port-i t- land in :40, and Shady Well in :38. The feature will serve as the sixth race i of one of the most attractive programs of- | fered since the meeting opened. Supporting •ri j the main event is the Escanaba Purse over • six furlongs, and it attracted Golden Fate, e, Cross Ruff, Wichita City, Double B., Rock ft X., Cant Remember and Glynson. Platers will meet under allowance condi-l" i- tions at the gruelling distance of a mile and id three-quarters in the Charlevoix Purse, the ie seventh race. Seven, including Blind Hills, s, the winner of the mile and a half race here • e i last Saturday, were entered. With cloudy skies prevailing today, a sub- b- j stitute race was carded to be used in the ie | event one of the original races failed to to i j withstand a change in track conditions.
