Sun Portland, Paradisical, Tearout and d Others Expected to Furnish a Thrill- ing Contest. • i CLEVELAND, Ohio, June 27.— A "dark horse" is expected to prove one of the prin- l~ J cipal contenders in the Ohio Derby, ,000 added, which is to be run on Saturday, July - r 6, at Thistle Down Park. This became evi- J" j dent when I. J. Collins Paradisical was vic-l " torious over Sun Portland, Illinois Derby » j i j winner, last week at Detroit. It also was J | ■ emphasteed with the crushing defeat of . , , Phil Reuters Roman Soldier in the Ameri- j j ■ can Derby and with the marked improve-i ment of J. F. Clarks Clang; D. B. Midkiffs , s | ! : ] Tearout, winner of the Latonia Derby; L. * i . Beydas Banish Fear and L. E. Komorous 3 1 j 1 Chief Cherokee. j Expert observers as well as horsemen in n ! , general are of the opinion that the three- J" j ; j j year-olds of this season have yet a long way j I , to go in deciding the championship. Black i Helens victory in the American Derby, the e i | , defeat of Omaha by Rosemont and the vie- ~~ . | tory of Sun Portland over Roman Soldier !.r I | and Sun Portlands defeat by Paradisical, : makes the three-year-old title one which is ls , . j considerably muddled. j Cleveland fans are looking forward to one ie of the most open races in history of the e i Ohio Derby, which was begun with the vie- 2~ ! tory of Black Gold in 1924. They point to ° j the possibility of an upset inasmuch as Sun n j I Portland and Paradisical meet again and in n the same race will be Tearout, Clang, Eddie ie | j J., Beaver Dam and others. j The nominations for the Ohio Derby close e | on Saturday, June 29, and racing secretary f I j Richard Leigh announces the following * | nominations received to date: Phil Reuters s j Roman Soldier; Mrs. Silas Masons Sun n j ! Portland; L. E. Komorous* Chief Cherokee; ;:* ! j L. Beydas Banish Fear; Odessa Farms Ed- ? j j die J.; D. B. Midkiffs Tearout; T. E.

Midkiff and :: says he has high hopes that Tearout will come. Others who have signified their in-!" n- tention of shipping here include Beaver er Dam, McCarthy, Blue Armor, Eddie J., Chief Cherokee, Banish Fear and Prince Splendor.

Clang and 1 j Moratorium are already on the grounds. I Railroad and boat officials have written 1 ; j to general manager Eddy saying that spe- . ! cial week-end rates would prevail over their 1 j | lines from nearby points.
