Charles Hatton THE JUDGES STAND Don Bingo Newest Name Horse Proves Bargain for Binglin Turf Sets War Bond Mark Lincoln Meet Encouraging NEW YORK N Y June 1 1Not Not all the Latins come from Manhattan There is Don Bingo who came to Manhattan from the Argentine The Don looked exactly as sultry as any other Latin in the Suburban American racings proudest contribution to democracys cause on Memorial Day It was almost unbelievable seeing the plebian Don Bingo Cakewalk home with daylight in front of a million dollar field heedless of the good neighbor policy and showering such aristocratic figures as Market Wise Attention Mioland hnh out and Vagrancy with sandy loam It must be admitted he even did a bit of running in the course of this Suburban for he hung out 201 We can only ascribe Don Bringos unconven ¬ tional behavior to his negligence about listening to owner Crosbys radio programs The Don crossed up Crosbys gag writers dreadfully No longer may they describe the Binglin horses as the despair of the bloodstock breeding industry It seems a pity the nasal nightingale chanced to be in New Orleans He would have relished the ex ¬ perience of seeing his colors a revolution of cerise and white polka dots flaunted to the stand in this coveted timehonored stake stakeMeanwhile Meanwhile Don Bingo will attempt to cor ¬ roborate this unexpectedly flattering impression in Aqueducts 30000 Brooklyn And irrespective of whether the Pampasbred is successful or rudely anti ¬ climaxes his Suburban triumph he now owes Bing and Lin Howard no board bills Don Bingo who is just homely enough to be interesting was imported In utero Crosby bought his dam Lirica for literally a song 2500 on the advice of Senor Horatio Luro Also included in the transaction was Suertero then a foal at the mares foot and since claimed by Isadore Bieber we believe Lirica was recommended as the dam of Ligaroti LigarotiSomewhat Somewhat uncomfortably experts explain it is all absurdly simple Don Bingo won because he carried amere 104 pounds to 128 on Market Wise That is no weight for a selfrespecting fouryearold to be carrying they point out We are afraid this attitude is rather untenable however for the thoroughbred breeding season in South America differs from our own Below the Equator the Don will not be a four yearold until August 1 So that he was in receipt of but eight pounds from the topweighted Market Wise on the scale scaleDon Don Bingo is trained or perhaps we should say imbued by Billy Post the chap who hitherto has been more familiar to turf enthusiasts as the conditioner of the celebrated steeplechaser Bath now horse de combat combatJoey Joey Renick emerged from the Suburban feeling pretty much as Jimmy Braddock must have felt when he came back from obscurity to defeat Max Baer That ride was a morale builder for every nearforgotten veteran of Renicks craft This is the finest thing any sport has done to boost the sale of War Bonds so far Prescott Bush observed accurately to this fascinated observer after the auction Memorial Day We used to sell 75000 to individuals among the fight crowds where the high bid was 100000 Mr Ames 200000 exactly doubles that I believe we may realize more for bonds at Beimont on Saturday Today we seemed to have underestimated this parks size and have been understaffed understaffedBush Bush who is national chairman of the National War Relief studiously economics the time consumed in the auctions The sale Monday was con ¬ ducted in that interval between the fifth event and the Suburban neverthe ¬ less wagering on the stake totalled a new allAmerican record for a single race raceStewards Stewards Cassidy Dunne and Vosburgh took a lively interest in certain phases of the Suburban It was a pretty rough race we are afraid Wendell Eads drew a sus ¬ pension for failing to prevent Market Wise from bumping Attention at the sixteenth pole Otto Grohs also was reduced to the more prosaic status of a spectator for striking Cowboy Wright with his stick which was neither quite cricket nor old school tie tieMarket Market Wise struggled valiantly to bring off a Suburban double Ironically the turfs Alger Boy not only failed to achieve that objective but was deprived of the place through a disqualification though there was the mitigating circumstance Attention appeared to be in reverse at the time of this contremps We suspect this 1943 edition of Jamaicas pride is rather more reconditioned than conditioned and contributed his share to the foul But foul it was and the stewards had no alternative under the Jockey Club rules Suffolk Downs reports are to say the least confusing the East Boston Association issuing a remarkable statement concerning its War Relief status In substance thc Massachusetts track proposes to contribute to War Relief which of course is the important thing though it is not quite clear when Excepting that it will not confer Massachusetts Handicap Day the glorious fifth to the cause causeIf If you are familiar with Alice through the looking glass you have a vague idea of the mechanics of racing on the New England wheel Lincoln at Hawthorne was host to a capacity War Relief attendance on Memorial Day The featured Francis Peabody Memorial preferred Chicagoans a contest among familiar entertainers The Lincoln Fields Jockey Club meeting of 30 days now is passing the halfway point with every indication it will prove an unqualified success successThe The latter portion of the meeting contains an interesting prospect of bringing into competition more of the glamour horses that are nominees for Arlingtons and Washingtons opulent features Valdina Orphan and Rounders for example are accomplished candidates for the 5000 Lincoln Handicap at the popular mile and a quarter route June 19 getaway day Possibly that rotund Saratogian Frankie Catrone will tighten the girth on one of this distinguished pair the late Emerson Woodward requeathed to racing racingLincoln Lincoln crowds are of a volume and enthusiastic mood which must be a source of unbounded encouragement to Ben Lindheimer They indicate Chicagoans zest for the thoroughbred sport is no less pronounced than in the effete East EastBy By the way that bumper crop of tote records at Beimont and the further salient fact 47083 attended on the holiday despite all the modern inconveniences of transportation indicates the Westchester Associations statistics may compare favorably with those at Aqueductonrailroad thus clinching a Saratoga meeting at Beimont BeimontIn In Maryland a delay is occasioned in the announcement of any definite schedule of fall racing through the inclination of the powersthatbe to await further developments on the transportation matter
