However, what the card may lack in name horses it will more than compensate tor by the evenly matched groups, which will parade postward on the eight-race card. The Blue Larkspur Purse, seven-furlong dash designed for four-year-old and upward members of the higher claiming category, will serve as the feature on the program. Seven well-regarded sprinters have been named to contest the issue which should result in a spirited duel.

Tuned Up recently arrived from Keeneland where he competed against reputable foes, and previous to that was campaigned at the Fair Grounds in New Orleans. It is highly probable that the Weber charge will need one or more races to become acclimated to this four-furlong oval. The remaining candidates for the Blue Larkspur with the exception of Hilds Liberty, made their initial outing here during the first week of the present meeting, but failed to run to their past good efforts. Hilds Liberty was recently transferred here from Lincoln Downs.
