Why so Seeking Third Victory in Row In Wilmette Purse at Hawthorne Oval Meets Boh Miss, Dimit * And Three Others in Dash; Six in Lake Shore Purse STICKNEY, 111., May 31.— Small fields again will be the order tomorrow for the Lincoln Fields Jockey Clubs eight-race program at Hawthorne, only 57 horses be-| ing entered for the entire card. The ,800 I Wilmette Purse, for three-year-olds at six i furlongs, and the Lake Shore Purse,. with I a purse of the same amount but for four-year-olds and upward at six and one-half I furlongs are the principal offerings on the ! card. Whyso, who has carried the silks of his ! owner-trainer E. Waltz to victory in his j last two starts, tops the field for the Wil-| mette Purse. The gelding son of Sir Damion I opened his three-year-old campaign at Sportsmans Park with a third on May 15 and came back three days later at the ; half-mile oval and graduated from the ; maiden ranks with a romping eight-length score. He proved a repeater in taking down ! top honors by a half-length in his first : outing at this mile course. Both of his vic-| tories were turned in over strips that were j termed "slow" and he should find tomor-| rows footing made to order for another ; visit to the winners circle. Raced Once at Downs Bolo Miss, who was shipped up here j from Churchill Downs, where she made one appearance for Hyman Friedberg. and Dimit, from the stable of Mrs. E. McCuan, may furnish the most contention. Roytig. a bay son of Tiger who won at this oval as a juvenile last season, will make his sea- i sonal bow in the Wilmette under the colors I of C. H. Cleary. C and K Stables My Night, with an impost of 120 pounds, will attempt to concede j from three to 15 pounds to his five rivals I in the Lake Shore and judging from his ! first outing here possibly may be up to the ! task. The Man ONight colt was second to j Full Cry in that engagement, his first of j the year, and showed a high turn of early speed. Although he met with but mediocre success last year he competed In much better company than hes meeting today. Those slated to face My Night in the i Lake Shore are Dixlanas Kona Wind. D. Borbas Prado Son, Leon Tikulskis Mid- ; nighter, I. C. Mishlers Lights Abeam and the first-time starter, H M. and S. T. Britts ; Silver Day.
