Tiger Rebel Seeking Further Laurels Hawthorne Offers 1 Trio of Features Chapel Bells, Tawny Lady Face Shifty Son of Tiger In Lake Forest Purse HAWTHORNE, Cicero, HI., May 22.— With one of the better week-day programs of the meeting on tap and with prospects for a break from the weather man imminent, the current Lincoln Fields session moves into its tenth day of sport tomorrow in hope of attracting a banner crowd. In placing the finishing touches on the eight-race program, racing secretary Larry Bogenschutz has carded three races that stand above the others, with the Lake Forest Purse gaining a slight edge in class This will be a six-furlong dash for four-year-olds and upward, with a ,500 purse. The others are two divisions of the Whine tka Purse, which will be run at six and one-half furlongs and is designed exclusively for four-year-olds and upward who are the property of bona fide Hlinois owners. The Lake Forest has attracted Dixianas Chapel Bells, Brent and Talbots Tiger Rebel, Jule Finks K. Dorko, Mrs. A. M. Creechs Tawny Lady, and the Woolford Farms Legislator. Of these, two, Tawny Lady and Legislator have been racing at this meeting. Chapel Bells and Tiger Rebel have been competing in Kentucky, and K. Dorko will be returning to competition after being away since last August. Won 1946 Debut in Easy Style Attempting to locate the probable favorite in the test is something of a problem, for all five entrants have shown enough either in races or in trials to recommend them highly. Because of impressive speed shown at Churchill Downs, Tiger Rebel will attract much attention. At the Downs eourse the four-year-old son of Tiger — Suellen made his first start since last November and was returned an easy winner. They brought his consecutive victories up to four, for before going to winter quarters he won three straight, one of which was here, when he downed Daily Trouble, Bushwhacker, and other worthies Because of his smart slate, he will carry 114 pounds and Irving Anderson will be in the saddle. Chapel Bells, who also won over this track last fall, indicated her fitness at Churchill Downs when she finished second in her last start and dead-heated for show in the one before that. Tawny Lady, a clever winner at this meeting who was blocked when attempting to get through in her most recent performance, figures to make her presence felt. She is partial to the distance and appears to prefer a fast track, which is in prospect for tomorrow. Legislator should benefit considerably over his latest outing when he finished second to Holdall and beat Final Glory, Clare-mont Miss, Baby Gold and Cinesar. The six-year-old gelding was allowed to remain off the pace in that dash, took the lead in the stretch and didnt relinquish it until Holdall came with a cyclonic rush in the last 70 yards. K. Dorko last raced on the "Big Apple" in New York against smart sprinters, and he usually gave creditable accounts of himself. He has been here in the Fink barn for several weeks and according to the local dockers he is fit and ready for a fine performance.
