Maine Chance Liberal Monmouth Nominator Has Named Horses for Fourteen Of Fifteen Stakes at Meeting OCEANPORT, N. J., June 3. — One of the most liberal subscribers to Monmouth Parks 1949 stakes schedule is Mrs. Eliza-betfr N. Grahams Maine Chance Farm, which has named horses for 14 of the 15 added money events to be decided during the coming June 17-August 10 season. A pair of hopefuls, Lord Boswell and Superb Command, are nominated for the July 23 renewal of the 5,000 Monmouth Handicap, while the three-year-old Superb Command holds the fort alone in the August 6 Choice Stakes. These are the richest stakes on the calendar. Maine Chance colorbearers of all ages have also been named for other Monmouth Park classics, carrying a total of 95,000 in added money. From a standpoint of glamour, perhaps the most interesting thoroughbred in the barn slated for campaigning at the seaside track is the four-year-old Royal Blood, a chestnut son of Coldstream — Spotted Beauty, by Man o War, and eligible for both the Rumson and Oceanport Handicaps. This colt was purchased as a yearling at Keeneland for 0,000, and today enjoys the enviable distinction of being the only yearling ever bought in this country at such a fabulous figure who has repaid that purchase price. As a two-year-old, Royal Blood earned 8,875, and last year added 2,975 to his record, the 6,675 of the Jamaica Handicap being a healthy boost along the golden road. Entering 1949 with earnings of more than 0,000, the chestnut sprinter is the only one of 11 youngsters bid in for 0,000 .or more to win himself out.
