Pimlico Offers Preakness Prep Purse Without Wagering on Todays Program Kinsman, Arcave and Dooly Make Up Field; Commission Approves Nine-Race Card PIMLICO, Baltimore, Md., May 13— For the first time since the Market Wise-Hal tal L Pimlico Special of 1941, . the Maryland Jockey Club will offer active competition without mutuel betting. The occasion is Mondays running of the mile and a furlong Preakness Prep Purse, a race for three-year-olds, which was designed to attract additional starters in next Saturdays second jewel of racings "Triple Crown." The decision was made to abandon wagering when only three colts were named — Mrs. James Carsons Kinsman, Sylvester W. Labrot, Jr.s Arcave and Cornelius V. Whitneys Dooly — and the Maryland Racing Commission granted permission for an additional race under these circumstances. iWhile the response to the prep was rather discouraging to local officials, they were determined that sophomores would have every possible chance to earn a starting position in the Preakness and also to attain their peak form for that mile and three-sixteenths fixture. Arcave and Kinsman were expected to be named, but the entry of Dooly by trainer Syl Veitch came as somewhat of a surprise, for the colt arrived only yesterday from Churchill Downs, accompanying his more illustrious stable-mate. Mr. Trouble, who finished third to Middleground and Hill Prince in the Derby. Kinsman is the highweight in the prep under 116 pounds, which likely will include jockey Robert J. Martin. The Whirlaway colt has been no worse than fourth in 10 starts this season. After beating Oil Capitol, Theory and Lights Up at seven furlongs in an overnight event at Hialeah, Kinsman finished fourth to those colts in . — . . — . ? the Flamingo and. since arriving in this state was second in the Laurel and third in the Chesapeake, which saw Sunglow and Greek Ship finish one-two for the Brook-meade Stable. Long range observers, are already anticipating the developments should the King Ranch-bred Kinsman win Continued, on Page Thirty-Eight Offer Preakness Prep Purse Without Betting at Pimlico Continued from Page Three Monday and go on to beat Middleground in the Preakness. Arcave, like Kinsman, is Maryland-owned, and last week was declared a non-starter in the Preakness by trainer Jimmy Rowan. The son of Discovery and Trina improved greatly to race the older Golden Bull to a nose decision in the Gittings Purse, then came back to* turn in a mile and a furlong trial in 1:53%, which constitutes the best nine furlongs morning . tuVi rue- -n: IrtiteJl nuT move of the spring season. While a rider has not been named for the Maryland-bred, it seems likely that Jack Robertson will receive the assignment. While he has been declared a certain starter in the Preakness next Saturday, Dooly will have to show a semblance of class to fulfill that engagement. The "clincher" could be gained through a victory over Kinsman and Arcave in the Prep. Dooly, a son of Eight Thirty, raced in the Derby but showed nothing, being far back throughout that mile and a quarter and completing the journey in 11th position, beaten almost 20 lengths. Mel Peterson is a possibility in the saddle. , -~ - -tflfr— irrtniariI Ot U3 — GandviEarTOrtoa.
