Two Allowance Events At Sportsmans Today Ten Sprinters in Light Brigade, While Nine Seek Swing On Purse SPORTSMANS PARK, Cicero, HI., May 3. — A pair of allowance races are slated to serve as co-features on an exceptionally interesting card drafted for presentation tomorrow at this half-mile West Side course. Scheduled to be decided first of the two condition affairs is the Light Brigade Purse. A limit field of 10 starters is named for this seven-furlong dash which will be offered as the fifth race. Three-year-old and older horses comprise the field and a prize of ,500 is offered. A similar purse award is attached to the other allowance test, which follows as the sixth race and is titled Swing On Purse. Nine horses, with eight wagering interests existing, are named to match strides at five furlongs in the Swing On. Listed to compete in. the Swing On are Little Bobbles, owned by the Valley View Farm; Cuddlesome, the property of S. A. Alexander, Walter Sweezeys Rusty Lad, F. Scotts Penniless, Mr. and Mrs. John Gunthers Little Flower. William Hal Bishops Jimminy Gosh, Roman Road, belonging to Mr. and Mrs. Stefan Zachar, and the entry of Play Again and Connies Boy, who will perform for Marion H. VanBerg. Little Bobbles, who is co-holder of the course record here for seven furlongs, should show an improved effort in this engagement over his outing on opening day at this track. He was apparently short of top performance in finishing seventh to Greytown. Prior to his lone race here, Little Bobbles had been seen under silks but once this year, that appearance being made at Oaklawn Park in March. The four-year-old son of Jean Valjean-Bobbles, downed some of the better sprinters campaigned here last fall and should gain considerable recognition in the wagering when he goes postward in tomorrows encounter. The tandem of Play Again and Connies Boy should also figure prominently in the betting. Play Again made her initial start of the 1950 season here last week and finished fourth to Bubbling Easy. She probably was in need of the outing and could display an improved effort in the Swing On. Last season Play Again earned four victories, all of them early in the year, which may indicate she performs best when fresh. ■
