Coldstream Aiming for Juvenile Stakes Has Eight Named For Two Futurities Big Stable Now Assembled At Homewood; Entries for Three Fixtures Close Today HOMEWOOD, 111., June 18.— Coldstream Stable has arrived at Washington Park arid has fixed its designs on the eight juvenile stakes, which will be the principal objectives of the prominent establishment operated jointly by E. Dale Shaffer of Chicago and Kentucky and trainer Jack Howard. Two-year-olds predominate in the Coldstream delegation. For the 0,000 Arlington and Washington Park Futurities alone they have no less than eight candidates, while three fillies are eligible for the 0,-000 Lassie Stakes. Coldstream Stable was organized several years ago to buy and race the entire output of Coldstream Stud at Lexington, Ky., owned by young Shaffer and his sister, Mrs. Barbara Neumann. After they have reached the yearling stage under the watchful eye of the farm manager, Charley Ken-ney, the Coldstream foals are sold to Coldstream Stable and taken over by trainer Howard, former jockey, who also operates his own farm, Rookwood, near Lexington. Besides the two Futurities and the Lassie, the two-year-old stakes on which Coldstream has centered its designs during the 67-day Arlington-Washington Park season are the Primer, Hyde Park. Princess Pat, I Washington Park Juvenile and Prairie State Stakes. Four Sired by Bull Dog Four of the eight Coldstream candidates for the Futurities are by the home stallion : Bull Dog. sire of Occupation and his juve- | nile brother, Occupy, who races for John Marsch of Chicago. Marsch intends to start Occupy in the Primer Stakes next Thursday. Although he became the Futurity specialist and leading juvenile money-winner last year, Occupation was defeated in the Primer last year by Littletown. Coldstreams Futurity candidates are Rover, Hydrant, Whippet and Seeing Eye, all by Bull Dog; Porpoise, by Coldstream: Apple Knocker, by Reaping Reward: Wild Rice, by Sickle, and Brinks, by The Porter. The stables eligibles for the Lassie Stakes on July 3 are Songburst, Expendable and Nap, the latter winner of her first and only start. Nominations for the Primer Stakes close at midnight Saturday. At the same hour two of next weeks other stakes close. They are Wednesdays ,000 Princess Doreen Stakes, six-furlong event for thre-year-old fillies, and the 0,000 Equipoise Mile, to be run on the first Saturday of the meeting, June 26. Entries close next Monday, opening day. for the 0,000 Stars and Stripes Handicap, the July 5 holiday feature and one of the five 0,000 added events of the Arlington-Washington Park season. Whirlaway and . Alsab are expected to be among the nominees for the Stars and Stripes. It is alto- gether possible that this will be the first start of the year for each, although one or both may be sent to the post in some prior event as a tune-up for the rich holi-day fixture. Whirlaway and Alsab have met three times, the latter winning on two of those occasions.
