Timeless Among Six-Horse Field] For Aberdeen Stakes at Pimlico j ! ! ; ! J Unbeaten MacLeod Juvenile* Meets Don Chance, Hoop Jr. At Four and Half Furlongs BALTIMORE. Md.. April 25.— Two-year-olds hold the spotlight at Pimlico tomor- j row, where will be presented the 30th renewal of the ,000 added Aberdeen Stakes, very much a fixture of Havre de Graces past spring sessions, but this year incorporated into this four-way combined undertaking of Marylands major tracks. Under conditions of this four and one-half furlongs tilt the Bowie Kindergarten winner, Mrs. Colin MacLeods Timeless, and W. A. Colemans Don Chance are unposted equally with 117 pounds. In the Kindergarten Don Chance fiinshed fourth while in receipt of three pounds from the successful Virginia -bred. Remaining entrants in the small field of six are F. W. Hoopers 0,200 yearling purchase, Hoop Jr., scheduled to carry 115 pounds: Sylvester W. Labrots Shako. 115; Brookfield Farms In the Purple. 112. and Mrs. Weston W. Adams Flying Bridge, who is to tote 115 pounds. Given Title of Dark Horse Although Timeless achieved a facile Kin- dergarten triumph, there is no guarantee that the Grand Time colt will again have it easy in the Aberdeen. Granted that Hoop Jr. was beaten off. it must be remembered that on the occasion in question he had none the best of it. During the early running the Sir Gallahad LU. offspring lacked sufficient speed to keep up with the leaders and when he did get to running was forced to lose much ground while improving his position. Considering this he turned in a creditable effort. It therefore may easily be that with better racing "luck" the Hooper represen- j tative will even the score. The title of "dark horse" is applicable to Shako. The bay put on a good performance in the Kindergarten and in spite of not having been able to seriously threaten he is not to be taken too lightly. By the way, that particular effort may have been all the youngster needed to ready him for a winning essay, so to speak. While not having previously engaged against such comany. In the Purple and Flying Bridge have already been returned winners at this meeting and, if it means .anything, they are at least familiar with the strip. Juveniles being an unknown quantity the two in question may furnish quite a bit of contention, or perhaps one I or the other may prove triumphant. i
