Card Splendid Program At Suffolk Downs Today Five Commonwealth Candidates Entered in Sea Breeze Purse SUFFOLK DOWNS, East Boston, Mass., May 2. — A decided change in the weather brings out one of the most illustrious racing programs of the current New England season to be offered at Suffolk Downs tomorrow. Three allowance sprints, each to be contested at six furlongs, adorn the nine-race card and either of the events scheduled could easily surpass any feature thus far offered, with the exception of the two stakes, the Paul Revere and the Governors Handicap. The sixth race is titled the Sea Breeze in which five of the eight candidates are eligible for Saturdays Commonwealth Handicap. The quintet includes Honeywell Farms Dole; S. J. Browns Harbour-ton: W. J. Lenihans September; Endovina and Alesias Countess In and Mrs. H. Al-brechts Roy. The remain inf members of the line-up are J. J. Nashs Wolf Whistle, M. Belascos Nick Bloom and J. W. Nizlek"s Orbit. This affair looms as a wide open race and the ones that turn creditable efforts may earn a starting position in Saturdays richer event. In the fifth race, a dozen capable sprinters, including two couplings, have been named overnight. Unlike the feature, this dash appears made to order for T. G. Bensons Hy Diamond. The latter finished second to Cacomo in the Governors Handicap and will not be meeting as stout opposition as he encountered last Saturday. The local management has named this race the Joseph Molbert Memorial, in honor of the deceased jockey who was killed just a year ago at this track. The other supporting feature is exclusively for three-year-olds arid has drawn a closely matched field of eight contestants. Probable favoritism in this dash will be centered on Murray Hill Farms Heres Hube, already a winner of a similar event. Others in the fourth race who figure to give the choice a tussle, are Irving Gushens Judys Runner, Joseph Gavegnanos Little Captain and Lawrence Robinsons Locust-dale. Also scheduled to appear in this race is Mrs. H. Toffels Red Anita, an English-bred colt. Another of Mrs. Toffels imports, The Mame, also bred in England, is slated to appear in the opening race of the day, a maiden dash for three-year-olds.
