Keystone Purse at Randall Draws Eight Route-Runners RANDALL PARK, North Randall, Ohio, June 17 Despite inclement weather which gives all indications of an "off" track for tomorrows racing, racing secretary E. A. Hileman has arranged a highly attractive eight-race program. Sir of the eight races have drawn maximum fields with the feature event, the seventh on the program and titled "The Keystone," having the second lightest field with but eight performers going postward. For four-year-olds and upward, and staged at one mile and 70 yards, Jim Pat, who was victorious in his last try here, and Diadele, who has also chalked up a victory, sharing the wagering honors going postward. Rounding out this field is Parade Ground, Scots Belle, Light Frost, Larkalong, Blockader, and Mr. Mais. Other features on the days card include two sprint affairs to comprise the Daily Double with maximum fields named for each. The third event is for maiden four-year-olds and upward and also staged at six furlongs. Fourth on the program is another sprint titled the "Novelty" with keen competition promised to be offered by Bexley Pride, Miss Julie Y., and Pilgrim Maid. All three of the latter have been consistent performers at the meeting to date. The sixth and eighth events are over a distance of one and one-eighth miles and one and one-sixteenth miles respectively.
