Six Named to Face Happy Pilot In Chicago Heights Purse Today * Conference, Whyso, Day And Winter Song Clash In Co-Featured Sprint STICKNEY, 111., June 22.— The semifinal program of the Lincoln Fields Jockey Club at Hawthorne tomorrow will be featured by the Chicago Heights Purse, at one mile and 70 yards, and the six-furlong Whiting Purse. In the longer distance event seven seasoned performers, four years of age or over, will compete for a purse of ,000. None of the field for the Chicago Heights have been successful this season so far as a bow to the judges is concerned, but Happy Pilot, Lady Flares, Miami Springs and Rex have been in the money at this track or over at Sportsmans Park. Happy Pilot may rule a slight choice off his good second to Rush Act in his only appearance here. Choppy Sea, who only arrived on the local season recently, will command support, for he performed well in his engagements during the Churchill Downs meeting. The Jim Sands entry of Miami Springs and Roman Red should cut a strong figure in the running. Three to Carry Topweighr Rex, Choppy Sea and Happy Pilot, under 115 pounds apiece, are the top-weights of the lineup, while Miami Springs, with the apprentice allowance, has the lightest impost of 107 pounds. J. Apostles Day, E. Waltzs Whyso and Mrs. Monte Weils Conference will each take up 117 pounds in the Whiting, while J. S. Simons Winter Song and R. P. and R. C. Adams Bright Bronze will carry 112-pound burdens. Conference went down to defeat in his most recent encounter after having won his two previous engagements. Since he beat both Whyso and Day here on June 6 it is only logical to expect him to rule over that pair in the speculation tomorrow. Day possesses a keen turn of early speed and has a win and a third in two starts at this meeting. Hell be dangerous if he once gets out in front. On the other hand Whyso has been going along fairly well this season, with two wins, a second and a third out of six engagements. Winter Song likewise has been racing consistently, having finished in the money in all four of her starts. The Vanderbilt-bred filly has a win, a second and two thirds to her credit. Bright Bronze has been successful on two occasions. Others in the Whiting are Mrs. L. Lap-uyades Lovely Trace. H. Hanssens Lytta-Jane, Mr. and Mrs. P. J. Sopsics Nellie Weed and L. H. Thompsons Some Bid.
