. . . . . Tred Avon Brings Out Five Juveniles COSMIC BOMB The Helis colorbearer will be seeking his second success in as many starts in todays Tred Avon Purse at Arlington Park. Cosmic Bomb Tops Arlington Line-Up Helis Youngster Will Face Milkwagonjoe, Miss Mood, Patmiboy and Count Rough ARLINGTON PARK, Arlington Heights, HI., June 17. A duo of ,000 overnight races, one for two-year-olds and the other for fillies and mares, three-year-olds and upward, hold down the feature positions tomorrow as this picturesque course settles down into its long 36-day meeting after its splendid opening today. The Tred Avon, named in honor of S. W. Labrots clever mare, who gave Equipoise a hard fight in the Stars and Stripes Handicap here back in 1932, finds a field of promising juveniles going over the five and one-half furlongs route, and it may be that the winner will develop into a strong threat for the more valuable fixtures for youngsters during the meeting. Four of the five starters have shown especially good promise, while the other is a highly regarded first-time starter. William G. Helis Cosmic Bomb, a dark brown son of Pharamond n. Banish Fear, looked the part of a real comer when he exploded with devastating force against a likely band of two-year-olds in his most recent start aTt Belmont Park when he stepped over the Widener straightaway in :58 to score an easy victory. He showed excellent speed all the way and drew off nicely in the final stages. Invader From Kentucky An invader from Kentucky, Patmiboy, owned by Mrs. Louise Donovan, goes into the affray with a smart record. The chestnut son of Challedon Miss Fire showed splendid speed in his races at Churchill Downs and has been freshened up nicely and is being pointed for the" heavy stake schedule here. The swift Florida development, Milkwagonjoe, owned by Louis Schlosser, goes into the race with the Orange Blossom Stakes at Tropical newly tucked under his belt. The oddly named son of Chicstraw Gallerne started only three times during the Florida season, finishing third in his bow, then winning the other two. Once he was convinced that he had a colt of unusual speed, Schlosser, who also trains the youngster, decided to give him a rest in preparation for the current meeting. He is reported to have worked smartly since -arriving at this track. Neither, too, can Frederick W. Hoopers Miss Mood be counted out as a contender. In her only start at Hawthorne, she rather easily turned back a fine field of youngsters, including Well Wisher, Stella Snyder, and others. She showed good speed from" the beginning and was drawing off during the late stages of the race. The big question mark in the Tred Avon is Count Rough, a chestnut son of Reigh Count Silver Lane, who will be making his initial appearance under colors. The colt was purchased at the Keeneland yearling sales last year for ,500 by Augustus and Nahm, under whose silks he will run. He probably will be the outsider in the field. The Paicines, a seven-furlong race for fillies and mares, will bring together some of the better members of the so-called weaker sex. Several of them will use this dash as a prep for the Princess Doreen Stakes, 5,000 added sprint carded here Saturday. Thomas Piatts Come and Go, who ran to her best form at Hawthorne last week by beating a field of formidable middle-distance runners, will attempt to utilize her keen speed at the shorter distance. She is a young mare of much class with aspirations for many of the stakes scheduled here. Favoritism for the race, however, probably will go to the Walmac Farms Wallflower, a good winner at Hawthorne who is possessed of extreme early speed. Others in the field are Martharine, Dorathy A., Devastating, Roman Belle, Breezy Louise, Flight Gal, Mighty Lucky, and Happy.
