Unconditional Faces Ten Foes in Aristides Purse Ted Lewis, Vienna Waltz Also In Route Feature at Detroit DETROIT, Mich., June 23. — Entries again closed at a reasonable hour, albeit somewhat later than the established 10:30 a. m. scheduled time, and the satisfactory response from horsemen permitted racing secretary Charles F. Henry to arrange a pleasing eight-race card for Monday at the Fair Grounds. A penchant for naming events after famous horses prompted Henry to title the seventh and feature offering after the iit-tled red horse," Aristides, hero of the first Kentucky Derby in 1875. Eleven three-year-old representatives of 10 different interests will vie for the ,000 purse in the mile and one-sixteenth head-liner. Top weight of 115 pounds for the overnight handicap has been alloted Peterson and Childs Unconditional, a rather impressive runner-up to Tiger Man here a few days ago. In that essay the gelding lost ground early while escaping crowding and this contributed to his defeat. In all likelihood, the bulk of the wagering will center around Uncodiitonal, Louis DeLatours Ted Lewis, the victim of interference in a recent outing; Neville Dunns Vienna Waltz and probably Mrs. B. Hernandez Nine R. Train, second in his last public appearance. Rounding out the field are Romance Boy, Money Troubles, Park Avenue, San Yet, Turkey Foot and the F. Forestiere entry of Don Rey and Regal Maid. Supporting the main event is the Jackson Claiming Purse, carded fifth, and the Grosse Point Claiming Purse, to be decided sixth. They are split versions of the same race, each with a ,500 purse and for four-year-olds and older at six furlongs. Twelve are entered in each end. In the fifth, apparently Sea Tack, War Counsellor, Spare the Rod and probably Ackwell will divide the wagering support. All four have already performed here and given indications of being ready. Remaining entrants are Nibble, Hogan, Peace Eagle. Hit It, Calm Port, Gallant Hour, Uhhuh and Pies Pat. Already a two-time winner, Rusty Gold will doubtless have many supporters for the sixth. Tomluta, too, will come in for consideration and also Ariel Image, Seminole and Best Blister. M Maiden two-year-old fillies meet in the opener over four and one-half furlongs. Platinum Sands, second in an effort at Woodbine, might be installed favorite. Others named are Up Grade, Gypsy, Actress. Sira Mou. Jubilee Gem. Nayada, Baby Barbara, Sweet Rythm and Green Shed.
