Renew Jersey Stallion Stakes Today Helis Pair Likely Choice at Camden Top Spring, Spartan Valor Both Well Fancied; Paddys Hat Winner in Jamaica Bow By FRED GAIXANI GARDEN STATE PARK, Camden, N. J., May 9. — Eight two-year-olds, the produce of stallions standing in this state, are slated to meet over five furlongs in the 0,000 New Jersey Stallion Stakes here tomorrow. This is one of the newest of the added money features of the Garden State Racing Association, having only its third running tomorrow, with Big Nose and Casemate the winners of the two previous years. Mrs. William Helis Top Spring is the most campaigned of the group, racing three times at the Fair Grounds and twice at Havre de Grace and has got some part of the purse in each of his starts. He won first crack out in New Orleans, followed that with two fourths at that track and moved up to Maryland where he won a four and a half furlong sprint and was third in a subsequent outing. He is a gray son of Olympic Zenith, who also campaigned under the name ofxValdina Zenith before being bought by William Helis. Spartan Valor, owned by W. G. Helis, will race coupled with Top Spring and the pair appear to be the likely choice. The remainder of the field consists of W. S. Cottons Black Venus and Mrs. C. Tumins Wild Tip, both of whom will be indoctrinated to racing, and C. E. Mather H.s oddly named Tredyffrin, Woodland Farms Royal Garden, Brandywine Stables Paddys Hat and Jay Cee Farms Sheridan Square. The last four have all been to the post once. Finished Back of Iswas • Top Springs last found him third to Brazen Brat and Iswas only a half length behind the second horse who was later to win a division of the Youthful Stakes at Jamaica. Top Spring was giving Iswas four pounds on that occasion. Being a winner, he and Paddys Hat, the only other horse in the field without a maiden mark, carry 117 pounds, topweight for the spin. His stablemate, an Attention colt, ran but once in a quarter mile heat at Fair Grounds last February and went under by a neck to Fussy C. He has been training steadily since arriving in the North and should be a powerful running mate for Top Spring. Paddys Hat drove to a head victory in a five-furlong sprint in his first outing at Jamaica early last month. This gelded son of Deil at least will be the only entrant to have negotiated tomorrows distance and will be seeking to keep a perfect record. Off past performances he and the Helis entry appear to be the figure horses. Tredyffrin, Royal Garden and Sheridan Square will have to show marked improvement to be factors tomorrow. Each has had but one outing and wound up in the rearguard of their fields. Black Venus Is a filly by Knave High— Sister Ann, and Wild Tip is a filly by Wildlife— No Tip. Since both are making their first starts, nothing is known about them. The sixth race, an allowance test at six furlongs for four-year-olds and upward, will bring out eight horses, with Jaclyn Stables I Will trying for his third straight victory since returning to action. Winner of a division of the Wood Memorial in his three-year-old season, I Will has had three starts this year and won his last two. Opposing him will be Red Dawn, Bearing Clear, Toronto, Gold Jo, Flighty, Picture Card and Curtain Time.
