Y., May 1. — A surprisingly large field of 11 two-year-old fillies was named for tomorrows Rosedale Stakes, mid-week feature of the Jamaica program, and, for many years, one of the more in- teresting spring fixtures on Long Island. An epidemic of coughing plus the usual toll taken by bucked shins at this time of the year has seriously reduced the available number of good juveniles, but it now ap- pears that the 0,000 Rosedale will hardly suffer from these transitory blights, and it should provide a good, keenly contested dash. Russell A. Firestones Once in Love, Torrance C. Melroses unbeaten Clara Pat- ricia, Sunshine Stables Blessusgals, Putnam Stables Grey Magic, Hal Price Head- leys entry of Caucus and Papoose and Joseph M. Roeblings Blue Case are the more prominent candidates for this forty-, first renewal of the Rosedale. I All of these well-bred misses have shown j encouraging public form. While the public may have some difficulty in determining a choice in this field. Once in Love and Blessusgals both seem assured of strong support on the strength of their most recent outings over the local strip. Ran Five Furlongs in :59Vs Once in Love, who will be ridden tomor- I row by Ted Atkinson, since Greentree will have no starter in the Rosedale, made her • debut during the Hialeah meeting, finishing a good third behind Gallies Pride and 1 Union Lady. Shipped North, she came out _ for the second time last week, running five furlongs here at Jamaica in :5Q4,5 over a I "good" track, and defeating Papoose and | * the well regarded Anchors Aweigh. Atkin- s son was in the saddle on that occasion, , V and the way Once in Love came from behind to catch the pacesetting Papoose in 1 the stretch was rather impressive. Blessusgals, another with strong credentials in the Rosedale, had a little trouble in I her last and just missed behind Gallies l Pride after assuming a slight lead mid-way • tj of the stretch. This daughter of Bless Me i t] was only beaten a length in last weeks out- F ing, and the winners time was :59 flat, " equaling the fastest five furlongs at the , " current meeting. Willie Boland was up on r Blessusgals last time, but this rider is now in Kentucky, and no boy has as yet been s so assigned for tomorrow. H Double Winner in Florida $ Both Clara Patricias victories were scored in Florida last February, and the i S Best Seller fillys finale was in smart time. 1 She has not been seen under colors at t] Jamaica, nor is it known how much work ti trainer Watts has given his chance lately. n Hedley Woodhouse will ride, and it is quite tj possible that Clara Patricia prove a real w factor here. h Grey Magic tired badly behind Gallies Pride and Blessusgals in his last, and Blue ir Case, of whom a better effort can be ex- G pected, weakened in her last as if still a p trifle short. Tina Lazar is another who G might well show improvement here. c In the secondary feature, an overnight ° six-furlong affair for three-year-olds en- F titled the Kewessa, a fairly good band has D declared in. While several of the entries p have important stake engagements later, B is hardly likely that any starters in this B sprint will go for either, the Preakness or A the Belmont. They have all been out " enough to furnish a fairly accurate line on c their form, and they do not have the re- A quired class. Moseid, Busher and Mr. T Bushers disappointing full brother, The " Battler, Definitely, Graphic, Father Tiber M and Powwow look like the best in the Ke- ° On wessa, and it is possible that Mrs. C. Oliver Bi Iselins colt, Powwow, a son of Apache who finished a good second to Recline in his last, may have a little quality. If jockey Willie Mehrtens can get Powwow away fo from the difficult outside post position with W the leaders, he may prove hard to catch ra ran J j • 1 _ PETER A.
