Star in Famous Mile Handicap Market Wise Riverland Go In Golden Jubilee Running Of 10000 Belmont Event ELMONT L I N Y May 14 The Metropolitan most famous of Americas mile handicaps has attracted an impressive array of 18 aristocratic thoroughbreds for its 50th running as the stellar offering on Belmont Parks elaborate weekend pro ¬ gram Mrs Payne Whitneys Shut Out champion 1942 money winner has the dubious honor of being the starting top weight in this 10000 fixture with a bur ¬ den of 128 pounds The hero of last springs Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes is estimated to be only two pounds superior to Louis Tufanos storybook horse Market Wise and the Louisiana Farms emanci ¬ pated plater Riverland however In addi ¬ tion to this glamorous trio the field is decorated with the names of Mrs Tilyou Christophers crack sprinter Doublrab Tommy Heards 100 bargain Boysy and Coward DuPuys erstwhile claimer Mar ¬ riage Not to mention a Futurity winner in Some Chance a Hopeful victor in Devil Diver and a former heroine of the Alabama in War Hazard HazardField Field Attests to Campbells Skill SkillHandicapper Handicapper Jack Campbell has endeav ¬ ored to compensate for the uneven quality of the remaining entrants in his weight arrangement The field runs a hetreo geneous gamut from Derby Futurity and Suburban winners to such comparatively inconspicuous animals as Vain Prince the featherweight under 102 pounds The very unwieldiness of the field attests the skill Campbell has exercised in making the weights and it is difficult to predict the post favorite to say nothing of the winner Probably the Greentree runners will enjoy slight favoritism If all 18 face starter George Cassidy which seems extremely unlikely this golden jubilee Metropolitan would net the winner a tidy

Thumbs Up UpThe The status of Market Wise also is con jecturable for trainer George Washington Carroll observed that if the racing strip remained muddy as it was when entries closed the son of Brokers Tip hardly would start startThe The appearance of Shut Out Market Wise and Riverland alone would assure the Westchester Association a pretty heady at ¬ traction for the first of its four Saturday fixtures But the Metropolitan is not the only box office allure to be presented for the Voter Handicap boasts a stakes field though it is not a stakes race while several eligibles for the Acorn and

Seasonal Bow for Tufano Ace AceThe The vast majority of the Metropolitan field possess recent form that scarcely warrants any resume of their activities This will be the seasonal debut for Mar ¬ ket WiseA who has trained forwardly at Jamaica and whose principal objective is to duplicate his 1942 triumphs in the Suburban 25000 mile and a quarter spe cial that complements the Metropolitan on May 31
