Many Lands Likely Choice Over Eleven Rivals in Dearborn Handicap at Detroit Golden Man, Putitthere and Play Hands Oppose Wellman Racer in Sprint Offering FAIR GROUNDS, Detroit, Mich., May 28. — The Dearborn Handicap, a six-furlong sprint for four-year-olds and upward, headlines the attractive program arranged for presentation tomorrow at the Woodward Avenue racing grounds. Connections for an even dozen of the original group of 16 nominees accepted weights for the midweek feature, and the dash shapes up as one of the better offerings of the current Motor City meeting. Albert Wellmans locally owned Many Lands drew the topweight for the Dearborn and he will parade postward under 115 pounds. Many Lands, a stake winner during his 1945 campaign and a recent visitor to the winners circle at Keeneland and Churchill Downs, probably will rule choice over his 11 rivals. Although the Wellman gelding bowed to Umpydan in the Boots and Saddle Handicap here on inaugural day he had previously beaten the Huntley star and had some excuse after his Saturday defeat. Many Lands was bothered at the start of the Boots and Saddle and, hurried to reach serious contention, tired from the early effort and had little left for the stretch drive. George Krehbiels silks are to be carried in the Dearborn by his useful Golden Man, who is asked to shoulder 109 pounds. Started but twice during the recent Churchill Downs session, Golden Man bowed to William Helis Ricks Raft in his first appearance under silks this year, but came back in his next start on Derby Day, defeating a top field in a division of the six-furlong Brown Hotel Purse. Completing the probable starting band for the Dearborn are J. Harts Baumbach, 108; Donna-Ray Stables Bolo Tie, 107; Bonds Mill Stables Colonel Read, 113: A. F. Walls Hi Gallant, 108; Theodore D. Buhls Likeasnot, 110; S. I. Crews Putitthere, 107; E. D. Talberts Victim, 108; Mrs. Lottie Wolfs Romulus, 112; L. J. Hollen-bachs Roi Rouge, 107, and Mrs. James L. Chesneys Platy Hands, assigned 107. Of this latter group, Colonel Read, Play Hands, Putitthere, Roi Rouge and Likeasnot are rated dangerous at the weights, and any Continued on Page Four Many Lands Among Twelve Seeking Dearborn Handicap Continued from Page One one of these may make it rather interesting for some of the better-regarded eligibles In the meantime at the Fair Grounds, Detroit Racing Association officials are making preparations to entertain one of the largest crowds of the season on Thursday, Memorial Day.
