■■ — I List Ten Probables for Dwyer Renewal Aqueduct Fixture Seems Wide Open Top Juveniles to Compete In Tremont, Supplementary Event on Tomorrows Card AQUEDUCT, L. I., N. Y., June 17.— Tha Dwyer at Aqueduct on Saturday will attract a moderately capable crew of about ten of the Easts three-year-olds, according to present indications, with a similarly fair sized field in prospect for the Tremont, its companion feature for juveniles. The Dwyer, a continuance of the Brooklyn Derby, has a liberal endowment of 5,000 and the best known prospects for this mile and a quarter event are W. L. Branns Vin-j centive, Mrs. Vera S. Braggs Gold Shower, Belair Studs Tip-Toe, Mrs. H. L. Finchs Modest Lad, Foxcatchers Fairy Manhurst, Glen Riddles Strategic, Greentrees Famous Victory, King Ranchs Eye for Eye, W-L Ranchs Bill Sickle and B. F. Whitakers Pops Pick. This line-up leads to the belief that this 1943 edition of the Dwyer will be rather more interesting as an open-betting race among a well-balanced field than as a contest of any notable importance in the racing records. Quality as well as quantity is the pros-poet in the less munificent ,000 added Tremont of five and a half furlongs for two-year-old colts and geldings, for among the possibilities in this sprint are George Wideners Lucky Draw, hero of the Youthful and Juvenile, Harry LaMontagnes highly regarded Larky Day, an impressive Bel- mont Park graduate, and Greentrees rapid Stir Up. Lucky Draw, a compact gelding by Jack High— Tatanne, is generally conceded to be the most clever newcomer uncovered thus far in the Long Island turf season, and, in the Tremont, will endeavor to duplicate the conquest of his sire in 1928. Footprint Purse Todays Feature Victor Emanuels Surrogate, who has worked swiftly for the stake; Joe Browns hard-hitting Ravenala, King Ranchs slick-striding Depth Charge, Longchamps Farms Grant Rice, Lt. Alfred G. Vanderbilfs Extra Base, Mrs. E. duPont Weirs stakes-winning Galactic, and Lt. Col. C. V. Whitneys Good Show are other precocious beginners who may turn up in the Tremont entries. While observers were speculating interestedly on the size and personnel of the Dwyer and Tremont starting fields, a shifty group of a dozen sprinters were dropped into the entry box for tomorrows ,000 class C Footprint Purse at six furlongs. The stake winners, Light Lady, Salto, Mettlesome, Colchis, Abrasion, Eire and the clever Pompion are among the intended starters in this off-day attraction. Ordinarily, this would pass for a good stakes field. In the Goshawk, of ,500 at a mile and a sixteenth are a quintet of distance performers that include Modest Lad, who, of course, would not be a Dwyer runner were he to accept in this affair. Todays training period was productive of an interesting trial by William Helis 5,000 purchase. Attention, obviously in preparation for the rich Brooklyn, on June 26. The rangy son of the late Equipoise put in a handy mile and a furlong in 1:50%, never being extended and going the initial mile in 1:38% on the main course at Belmont Park. The oval was in fast condition. Another Brooklyn work was that of Louis Tufanos Market Wise, who impressed dockers as being in perfect fettle as he covered a consummate mile in :24, :48%, 1.14%, and 1:40% at Jamaica, easing on out to the mile and a furlong in 1:53%. Boysy worked five furlongs on the same strip in 1:02%, breezing all the way, apparently, in anticipation of a long move tomorrow or Saturday. •t , L t of f i B i i e j g 1 , • - * . | 1 i ! : ! | j l 1 s
