! I DETROIT TURF NOTES I and R. Emmett Potts, trainer of the Bomar Stable, announced Monday morning that he was sending Yellow Tulip to Hawthorne to fill his engagement in the Juvenile Stakes. William Kelley, custodian of the jockeys quarters, announced Monday morning that he has issued sixty badges to jockeys and apprentice riders. Before departing from Aurora, George Neal presented Miss Mercedes Oberuwise with the old plater Seths Ballot. The horse will be retired to a life of ease. Jockey J. Burrill arrived here Sunday and was in colors Monday afternoon. Jockey J. Rosen checked in from Narra-gansett and reported to the E. W. Duffy stable. Apprentice P. Camp, who is under contract to Z. E. McGregor, got in from Beulah Park. Carlos Mojena, Cuban rider who was among the leaders when he left New Orleans last winter for his home at Havana, reported to Henry Torriente. In addition to Tugboat Frank, Detroit Derby eligible, Joe Roberts brought Lin-lace, Prince Sador, Continuity, La Junta White, Mayor Holcombe, Cablegram, Lee Laffoon, Mars Palatine, Hokuao and Sea Fox from Narragansett. John Winans has Dasaki, Sneeze, Terra-cota, Flush and Hi Sweet here to race under the Aldrich and Winans colors. All of the horsemen racing at Detroit were delighted at the arrangement made for taking the saliva tests on all the winners. The stewards checked up on each race and the longest time that a horse was in the stall from the time the official number went up was three minutes. The rule giving the stewards the option as to the extent of disqualifications which was in vogue here last year and. which was also used at Arlington Downs, Texas, will be in effect again this year. Ed Anthony wired for stall room for Sun Monk, which raced here last year as the property of C. Savard. The horse will make a valuable addition to the handicaps and high priced claiming races. There seems to have been a misunderstanding among some of the apprentice riders who arrived here in respect to the rule governing the allowance. Many were of the opinion that the rule permitting them to claim the allowance until they had ridden forty winners was in effect here. Under the rule of the Michigan State Racing Commission, the apprentice allowance expires on a rider one year after he has ridden his first winner. Alf Tarn, owner of the horse Rushaway, which created a new record in winning two Derbys at two different tracks in two days, wired that he was shipping the son of Haste and three others here from Latonia. Rush-away is one of the fifty-six eligibles for the second running of the Detroit Derby, which will be run here June 13. Rushaway won the Illinois Derby Friday and the Latonia Derby Saturday. Frank Merimec, who arrived here Friday with three horses the property of E. J. Rollins, vanned the trio to Hawthorne Sunday. Edward Seagrams Stand Pat, winner of the Wolverine Handicap, will remain here for the running of the ,000 added Col. Alger Memorial Handicap. Stand Pat won the 1935 running of the race. Frank Gilpin stated that he was bringing fourteen others here at the close of the Woodbine meeting. A. J. Halliwell, Canadian owner, has Pan Toy. Oderic, Poop Deck, Black Flash and Modern Ace here to carry his colors. Joe Grossman came over here from his home at Chicago and expects to remain for the greater part of the meeting.
