Suburban and Oaks Hopefuls Work Out Market Wise Flashes Speed For 0,000 Race Mackerel Tested at Twelve Furlongs ELMONT, L. I., N. Y., May 25. The Su- . burban Handicap and Wednesdays Coaching Club American Oaks, stellar offerings of Re week at Belmont Park, will draw highly representative fields, judging from j training maneuvers over the week-end at the Nassau County course. Calumets noted Whirlaway, -top weight and probable favorite for the week-ends 0,000 Suburban renewal, was not called upon for fast work, but several prospective rivals of note brightened activities. The fastest distance trial was that of Louie Tufanos "rags and riches horse," Market , Wise, who Sunday morning at neighboring ! Jamaica impressed work watchers by spin- , ning along a mile in :23, :47, 1:11 and ; 1:38, easing up a mile and a furlong : in 1:53. This was an especially excellent move for Market Wise, who is not what horsemen ; refer to as "a good work horse." The track j was fast, of course. Market Wise, in his ; latest encounter with Whirlaway, beat the 1941 "Triple Crown" hero in new American record time for the two mile Jockey. Club Cup at Belmont last autumn. One of the best Suburban tests was that of Myron Selznicks rather battle-scarred veteran of the turf wars, Cant Wait, who yesterday at Belmont Park breezed a mile and a furlong in 50, 1:15, 1:41 and 1:55. Cant Wait has in common with Market Wise the trait that he frequently far excels his training gallops in actual competition and last week manifested a return to peak form when he won a Suburban qualifier. Attention Breezes Mile Attention, who won the Metropolitan mile early in the current Westchester Association meeting, tuned up for the Suburban Sunday when he breezed a mile in 1:20 and 1:43. Challedon and Third Degree were given "pipe-openers" this morning or tomorrow afternoons encounter in the Ballot Handicap, mile and- a furlong Suburban test. Challedon went three-eighths handily in :36, and the other one eased up a half in :48. There is some doubt if Greentree will have a Suburban starter unless Third Degree improves considerably tomorrow. Of course, in the event that Mrs. Whitney is represented, the Calumet camp must find a substitute for jockey Eddie Arcaro on the highly fancied Whirlaway. Eddie Christmas, who has converted old Challedon from a somewhat track-sour "has been" into a remarkably rejuvenated and formidable handicapper, announces that the famed "big pet" will be owner-breeder Branns lone starter in the Suburban, according to present plans. Naturally, Challedons status depends to some extent upon his showing in the Ballot. Reading II., another in tomorrows nine furlongs, will be on trial as a Suburbanite. In the event that he fails to develop any confidence in trainer PLilpot, that conditioner proposes to send postward the splendid mare Painted Veil to represent owner Louis B. Mayer. . Equipoises Daughter Impresses . Belair Studs Vagrancy is expected to be a top heavy favorite of the mile and a half of the coveted Coaching Club American Oaks. But that she may not find things exclusively her own way throughout that route classic for fillies was indicated Sunday morning at Belmont when C. V. Whitneys clever Mackerel went the full distance in 2:32V5 with impressive handiness. The Equipoise fillys fractions were :49, 1:15, 1:39, 1:51, 2:05, 2:18 and up in 2:32y5. Mackerels time of 2:18 for the mile and three furlongs was faster than that in which Coaching Club has- been won on many occasions when it was at that distance. Bonnet Ann and Copperette apparently are pointing for the Oaks. The former westerner, who races for A. A. Baroni and is a daughter of Ann ORuley,- on Sunday morning went a mile in 1:42 and a mile and an eighth in 1:55, moving well in hand throughout. Copperette, who is a lightly raced Foxcatcher filly, bowled over the same ground in the fashion in 1:17, 1:44 and 1:57. Other eligibles for the Oaks who may possibly be in the starting field are C. S. Howards Chiquita Mia, Hal Price Head-leys Lotopoise, and J. E. Wideners Tribal Ruler. With 0,000 added the Coaching Club is among the richest of three-year-old filly specials and certainly none is more eagerly sought by owners and breeders.
