Under the conditions of the Newark, Quarter Moon, a recent victor here, will be top weight of the field under 124 pounds, while assignments of 123 will be carried by Hornbeam, Sophocles and Mrs. Samuel Pis-torios Quillon. Arrayed against the high weights will be Tetra Rock, 119; Blaclc Gang, 119; Noonday Sun, 119; Pony Ballet, 116; Nances Ace, 114; Jimmie, Lady Hairan and Lady Gremlin, all with 112, and Fair Ann with 107. Especial interest will be attached to the appearance of Nances Ace in the colors of Hilton Dabson, former jockey, for this filly set a worlds record for five and a halt, furlongs the last time she was in action. This was in December, at Tropical Park, where she whirled over that distance in 1:03 Vs. The race promises to be the keenest sort of a battle, for Fair Ann, Quarter Moon and Pony Ballet all were successful in their most recent starts, while Sophocles, Jimmie, Quillon and Noonday Sun finished in the money in efforts at this meeting. Serving as secondary attraction on the card will be the Montchannin Purse, run as the eighth event and at a mile and a furlong. A field of nine has been named overnight, headed by Hornblende, under 122 pounds and winner of her last.
