Halorette Seeks Third Successive Accounting Faces Six Fast Route Rivals in Nantasket Purse at Suffolk SUFFOLK DOWNSt East Boston, Mass., May 1. — G. R. Schnars Halorette will be seeking her third straight triumph tomorrow when she faces six rivals in the Nantasket Purse, a mile and a sixteenth allowance test which serves as the feature attraction. The former Woodvale Farm runner is a hard-hitting three-year-old miss who seems to win at all distances when meeting performers just short of handicap caliber. As a juvenile the Haltal filly won five of her eight starts and already has compiled a record of four triumphs in 10 starts this season. Under the conditions of the Nantasket, Halorette gets in with a feather impost of 103 pounds and jockey Hubert Trent is scheduled to do the riding. J. A. Reynolds Stock Farms Athlete looms as the one most likely to prove the obstacle for Halorette to hurdle. The former Wheatley Stable horse has not been successful this year in 16 starts but has been meeting better than the field for the Nantasket. In his last start Athlete finished third behind Cacomo and Grand Entry. The son of Bold Irishman is top-weight in tomorrows field under an impost of 113 pounds, but that should not prove a hindrance. Reigh Jane, Tubby D., Wily Willie, Bill-man and Inf irst complete the line-up that has been named overnight to contest the Nantasket. Of this group. Tubby B. and Wily Willie have failed to impress in their last outing over the local track. The others will be making their initial start in this sector but must display improved form over the efforts they have been showing elsewhere. The remainder of tomorrows program is made up of ordinary platers with the exception of the third race, a half-mile dash for juvenile maidens. Old man weather has not been kind to the local management this spring and has retarded the training schedules of many of the 1,100 thoroughbreds stabled on the grounds. The fields on the daily programs have suffered because of the "off" track conditions that have prevailed during the majority of the races run to date.
