Regarded RegardedIn In spite of the fact he was beaten by Ky Colonel in the Joliet and the undefeated marks of the others notwithstanding Ol Skipper probably will be favored in the wideopen dash The strikingly handsome son of Occupation Seaway by Man o War suffered some trouble in the Joliet then managed to forge into third position when clear He followed that effort with what was deemed the best performance shown by any youngster during the Lin ¬ coln Fields meeting scoring by a head over Blue Night and equaling the track record of 58V5 for five furlongs set by Ky Colonel and Olympia In that test the courageous colt appeared hopelessly beaten when well settled for the drive but spurted in dazzling fashion to close the gap in the final sixteenth sixteenthThe The added half a furlong is expected to enhance his chances considerably Horse ¬ men who witnessed his last winning effort believe Ol Skipper is one of the most prom ¬ ising prospects to show in the Middle West this year
