I., N. Y., June 29. — The Queens County Jockey Club is offering a pair of stakes at Aqueduct tomorrow in the 0,000 Carter Handicap and the ,500 Astoria. Racing secretary-handicapper John B. Campbell and the management will be more than gratified if this years Carter produces half as exciting a contest as the 1944 edition, in which Wait a Bit, Brownie and Bossuet finished in the first triple dead-heat in a stake in New York racing history. Photographs of that triple dead heat now adorn the back bars of many of greater New Yorks better bistros and the Carter, which has been the appanage of such immortal speedsters as Beldame, Roseben, Roamer. Old Rosebud, Naturalist, Osmand, Clang and Devil Diver seems destined to be remembered in turf history chiefly for last years amazing finish. First Fiddle Totes 126 Pounds Two of the trio who were deadlocked in the 44 Carter are among the 11 who have been entered overnight for tomorrows re-newai I of the seven-furlong test. William J Zieglers Wait a Bit and J. B.

The Astoria, which is for juvenile fillies "s at five and a half furlongs, has attracted a a field of eight, including several who have J5 impressed as well above the average of 3 i their age and sex and possibly having cham-y l~ pionship potentialities. H. P. Headleys iS Forgetmenow heads the Astoria field under r 116 pounds, most of which will be Eddie Arcaro. and she will have a running mate te in Lamme, who carries 113. The others are Glen Riddle Farms War Kilt, John Green- ers Tree Fly, Col. C. V. Whitneys Mush Mush, and Albert Venzinas Mil El, with 113 each, and Belair Studs Bonnie Beryl and Mrs. W. P. Stewarts Rytina, 108 apiece. But for his last miserable effort in the Roseben Handicap at Belmont Park, Apache would probably be favorite for the Carter, despite his impost. However, the Belair veteran has had his full share of leg trouble in recent years and has more than once been reported on the verge of retirement to the stud. Wait a Bit, First Fiddle, Brownie and i Salto finished in that order in a sprint here on Tuesday. That race was the occa-_ sion for the seasonal debut of the first i two and both ran better than had been generally anticipated. Brownies race also showed signs of an impending return to his i brilliant form of last year, while Salto was j the disappointing favorite in that dash, running with little zest. I On paper, the Astoria appears to lie be-4 tween War Kilt, Mush Mush and Forget-, ; menow, all recent and impressive winners. War Kilt, a fashionably bred daughter of Man o War — Friars Carse, and one of Big Reds last crop, excited the most blase veterans, both by her style of running and her resemblance to her illustrious sire. Mush Mush made a runaway affair of her local debut last Monday, in which Rytina was a distant third. Forgetmenow and Lamme, her stablemate, both won their last out- | ings, the former beating the highly-re-;r garded Clover Lea in a five-furlong dash J on Belmonts Widener course, while Lamme scored easily at four and a half furlongs tgS on the same straightaway.
