Golden Cloyer Starts In Suffolk Main Event Waters Five-Yea r-Old Seen Choice Off Last Winning Race SUFFOLK DOWNS, East Boston, Mass., May 8.— W. W. Walters Golden Clover, a four-year-old hard-hitting gelding, heads a small field in the best offering at Suffolk Downs tomorrow. The event, which will be run as the sixth race, is one of the trick allowance races which allows a trainer who has a horse of the claiming variety to compete without fear of losing his breadwinner. The conditions call for four-year-olds and upward which have raced for a claiming price of ,000 since October 1. The distance is one mile and a sixteenth. Golden Clover won a similar race in his last start here, defeating E.* Dibes The Blues. In a prior start, the Waters gelding extended Rags to Riches, being beaten less than a length while finishing in front of Wise Wing, The Glove and others who have been performing in handicaps. Those entered overnight to compete against Golden Clover include Sun Call, a winner of a recent sprint; Seersucker, Daddy Joe, Varodi, Sticker and TJnap-prochable. Daddy Joe has a winning effort over a middle distance during the current meeting but his opposition did not include the caliber of Golden Clover. For the first time during the 15 days of this meeting, racing secretary "Eb" Pons was able to close his entries without the aid of at least one extra race. Inclement weather, that has been prevalent at this seaside oval, has retarded training but with sunshine appearing for the past six days, horsemen now have their charges ready to run. Tomorrows eight-race program, attracted 88 eligibles, the largest number accepted to date.
