Divide Delawares Polly Drummond Total of 21 Fillies In Juvenile Contest Bed o Roses, Faneuil Miss Named for Second Section; It Girl Goes in First Half DELAWARE PARK, Stanton, Del., June 3. — The excellent response to Delaware Parks stake fixtures continued for tomorrows 0,000 added Polly Drummond Stakes, with the result that the five furlongs dash for juvenile fillies will be run in two divisions, the fourth and fifth races on the week-end program. The supporting feature is also worthy of top billing, with 13 distance performers named for the mile and a. sixteenth Kiamensi Handicap, first in a series of five events which will be run • weekly at increased purses and distances. The fifth event appears the better of the two divisions of the Polly Drummond, due largely to the presence of Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilts Bed oRoses, winner of the filly division of the National Stallion Stakes and the Rancocas Stakes. She will be opposed by the following: William G. Helis Bridal Shower; Brookmeade Stables Pilayya; Honeywell Farms Faneuil Miss; Circle M Farms Isle of Mist; Mrs. A. V. Murphys Little Orchid; G. M. Humphreys Bay Leaves; Janet N. Kellys Jaleen; J. C. Ellis Flying Alice and Larry S. MacPhails War East. The other division of the Polly Drummond has attracted the following lassies: Pentagon Stables Chloe; Brookfield Farms Ida C; Happy Hill Farms It Girl; Walter M. Jeffords My Rose; Foxcatcher Farmjs Goldjintown; Willow Brook Stables White Bones; Brandy wine Stables Safety Catch: Justin Funkhousers Gilded Fox; Bobanet Stables Glen Arvis; J. Gomez Miss Pagan and Rokeby Stables Airolo. Winner of Three Races Bed o Roses, a homebred daughter of Rosemont and Good Thing, has won three of her seven starts this season and in the Rancocas scored over Chloe and Bridal Shower. The latter seems her chief rival tomorrow. Also-rans behind the Vanderbilt lassie in the Rancocas included Faneuil Miss, Pilayya and Jaleen, all of whom are in the same division of the Polly Drummond. The first division of the Polly Drummond lacks a prominent stakes winner, but shapes up as a more interesting event than the Bed o Roses division. Lone stakes winner in the fourth race is It Girl, winner of the Pimlico Breeders Stakes, who was purchased privately several days ago. It seems likely that the public will settle for either Chloe or My Rose. Chloe was second in the Rancocas, beaten but a length and a quarter, while My Rose finished fourth. Ida C. and White Bones were victorious In their most recent appearances, with the former impressing as a pretty shifty filly. Her victory was over the Delaware Park strip and she was timed in :59% while outstepping maidens.
