» j ! ! a ■■■■■MM ■ [ t Apache Faces Wait a Bit And Brownie in Carter Duo in Famous Triple Dead Heat Seek Repeat Honors in Fixture Continued from Paae One t ney Stone and Tex Martin, both being saddled by William Post. The Astoria, which is for juvenile fillies at five and a half furlongs, has attracted a field of eight, including several who have . impressed as well above the average of tbeir age and sex and possibly having cham- " , pionship potentialities. H. P. Headleys J | ; Forgetmenow heads the Astoria field under | 116 pounds, most of which will be Eddie Arcaro, and she will have a running mate » j in Lamme, who carries 113. The others are ! Glen Riddle Farms War Kilt, John Greeners Tree Fly, Col. C. V. Whitneys Mush i Mush, and Albert Venzinas Mil El, with 1 113 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 Salto finished in that order in a sprint ! here on Tuesday. That race was the occa- i sion for the seasonal debut of the first two and both ran better than had been generally anticipated. Brownies race also showed signs of an impending return to his , brilliant form of last year, while Salto was 1 the disappointing favorite in that dash, ran* ning with little zest. On paper, the Astoria appears to lie between 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 outings, the former beating the highly-regarded Clover Lea in a five-furlong dash J on Belmonts Widener course, while Lamme scored easily at four and a half furlongs I on the same straightaway.
