Six Named to% Contest Graceland Purse Today Corydon, Bolos Choice and Rush Ace Go in Lincoln Event STICKNEY, 111., June 7.— The Graceland 1 Purse, at a mile and 70 yards, will be the 1 1 feature at Hawthorne where the Lincoln i Fields Jockey Club begins the second half , of its meeting tomorrow. Six were named i i I for the race, which carries an ,800 purse, j j ] and they are well enough matched to sug- j i gest they will put on a most interesting j j spectacle. j Those named overnight for the Graceland were Corydon, Rush Act, Bolos Choice, Rosy Brand, Twixt and Latent, and on their j best races any one of them could be a winner. The manner in which Corydon made up ground in his last start, over a shorter distance, will give him much public I I support for tomorrows engagement and he might be the favorite. Rush Act, who was second in a recent race, also will command respect from the , , public. J Corydon was made eligible for the Steger Handicap on Saturday, but he is passing up that feature in favor of tomorrows race, whose distance may better suit him. The Steger is to be decided over only six and a half furlongs. For the first time in some days Lincoln Fields finds itself in a position to offer three distance races tomorrow. The seventh event will be decided over a mile and 70 yards and I the eighth over a mile and a sixteenth. In the seventh are such reliable performers as Tex Hygro, Paducah, Miami Springs, Lights Abeam, Venci and String Band, while in the eighth are Pamphlet, Giant Star, Good Get, Here Now and others.
