Horses to Watch Horses who impressed Daily Racing Form representatives as being ready to win: SPORTSMANS PARK 1 CASTILE — Has had bad luck in last two starts. Could get a break soon and walk his beat. BILLCELLA — Probably needed his last race and is almost certain to do better next time. Comes from a good stable. JOHNS DATE — Last race was not too bad and slight improvement will get him the money. Runs for about ,500. BELCON — Beaten at odds-on in last race when he failed to run back to his previous form. Could be worth following. FASHIONED — Raced to an easy victory in last outing in fastest seven-eighths time of the meeting. Could be capable of beating better. DEEP WATER— Look for this one to turn in a good race when stretched out to mile and a sixteenth or over. DINA BAM— Capable of doing better than shown in last race when she was away from the post in last place when she should have been on top. PAPA FELIX — This one may be best at seven furlongs. Was going fast at the finish of last race. EMORY A. — Seems to be in keen condition right now. Overcame interference to win last and could repeat. AIR COMMANDER — Look out for this one in ,000 claiming company at a mile and a sixteenth or over. Finished very fast last time. EYE CATCHER— Has yet to turn best race here. Figures to be dangerous in next five-furlong dash in which he is entered. QUEEN KARLING — ,500 racer who showed up fairly well in first start here. Is likely to improve. CHURCHILL DOWNS CIRCUS CLOWN— Quick sprinter has been | engaging top company and he recently stepped three furlongs in :35. HAND FINISHED — Useful sort when dropped with own class rivals and breezed three-auarters mile in 1:15. BLACK TWEETIE — Hard-hitting gelding is approaching peak form and worked five furlongs in 1:01% handily. SIGNAL COD E — From a well-trained stable and was narrowly beaten in recent try aeainst ,000 grade sprinters. MON SPEED — Trifle short in initial start at meeting and should improve off that effort. BRILLIANCE — Well made four-year-old filly is improving steadily under Johnny Loftus conditioning and ready for early victory. NIGHTMARISH— Waldheim plater should get his share of the purse money at the local track. SHY GUY — Just missed in the Clark Handicap and the Dixiana star was never better. Can handle classy company on fast track. SUN BOUND — Ordinary plater improves with racing and ready to beat field of ,000 grade middle distance racers. LITTLE IMP — Raced impressively in Brown Hotel Purse and due for early visit to winners ring. MONITRESS — Maiden two-year-old displayed good speed in only appearance under colors and should graduate during Downs meeting. STONY RIVER — Knocking at the victory door and eligible to good spot in maiden juvenile dash. JOHNS JOY, — Kinard stallion ran two corking races at the Downs and he is in excellent condition. JUDY BOY — Jones youngster looked good in only start and will soon earn set of brackets. JAMAICA BRANDY PUNCH — Stumbled at the start when second to Striker Pilot in latest. STAR KNIGHTESS — Was crowded back in most recent try. ROMAN WISE — This three-year-old filly of allowance caliber is at peak condition and should repeat. THE MINOR — First try under silks was impressive. Should not be long in leaving the non-winners ranks. MISS STONE — Turned in a good effort in most recent outing and appears ready to earn a purse. FISH FRY — Lost considerable ground after breaking sluggishly. Should improve over the effort. BEST HOST — Not the best but a capable sort of juvenile. DEFLATION — Encountered poor r a ci n g luck in latest try. Should register a surprise tally soon. CIGAR MAID — This youngster is highly regarded by her connections. FROST BITTEN — Closed considerable ground in most recent try and could score when competing over an off track at a distance of ground. CAT BRIDGE — A useful sort of router who may have needed his recent outing to reach peak form. LOTUS BLOSSOM — A route of ground is perhaps needed by this four-year-old filly. APENNINE — Pressed the issue all the way in latest start and just missed. Deserves another chance. STRIKE OUT— When requested to go a distance of ground, this three-year-old gelding could tally. f SUFFOLK DOWNS CRAZETTE — Lost a decision recently when disqualified for racing wide in stretch. Needs only to repeat the speed shown in that race and have a strong boy in the saddle. MOOSE PONE — Lost a close one in seasons debut here after setting rapid pace. With that race as a tightener, she should have no trouble handling same opposition. CHACMA — An experienced rider may have been what this miss needed when she finished second in last outing. Should atone for that defeat. JOBIE — Improvement shown by this fellow should indicate a winning performance is near at hand. COLLEGE QUEEN — A fleet miss that should do more than earn her way throughout the long meeting. WHIT WHIZ— May have been in need of local debut. Has trained smartly and should not tarry in winning a race soon. YOGURT — The manner in which this miss closed in a recent sprint should make her fit for a middle distance event. EQUIHAZE — In his present form this son of Equistone will not be too long in taking down the major portion of a purse. MARY BONIFACE — A very consistent miss that should keep on winning if not raised too high in company. AUNTIE — Morning trials indicate she retains the speed shown around here last year. JEEP GYPSY — Has been going well during morning workouts. Could win at first asking. NORWEST — Appears better than he was last year. Has been burning up the track in early morning. PIMLICO FLOCO — Improvement was noted in last and brackets may be in the immediate future. ANNIE OAKLEY — Attained winning form in last and was impressive enough to suggest another victory against similar company. SERVICE PILOT— Veteran router seems to have attained good form and has always been partial to this strip. ORIOLE — Has been unfortunate this spring and was the victim of a poorly-judged ride in last. SAPLING — Raced well under the whip in late stages of last and may surprise against claiming juveniles. FOURTEEN GRAND — Boasts a recent victory and has trained well over this track all spring.

BON LYNN— Finished third in last start despite being almost knocked down in the early stages. TENURE] — Has trained exceptionally well this spring and should give a good account of himself at first asking. SYLVAN ROCK — Freshening period seems to have done this one a world of good. Works have been on the fast side. DR. WRIGHT — Recent effort should aid this one sufficently to bring improvement. BRINDISI — Training well enough to surprise if properly placed in the near future. MARYLAND DAY— Was overmatched last year after having demonstrated that he possessed a bit of class in sprint company. GARDEN "STATE PARK SARACEN MISS — This mare stopped badly and was a defeated favorite in her first try here, but she deserves another chance against the same kind of company. BUSY INDIAN — Two-year-old stumbled badly at the start of his last race, and then was used up forcing the pace for his stablemate to come on and win. Should take the laurels himself next time. MONMOUTH— Was ridden under a loose rem and gave a poor effort in his last race. Prefers to race "against the bit," and can do considerably better. HALCONERO — Steady-going performer can be tabbed for a top effort when entered at a mile and a quarter or longer. PRINCESS GALA— This mare had dull form while going sore last year. Appeared in good condition in her first of the season here and may be better than indicated. HEAD STREAM— Probably was short when finishing third in his first race in two seasons. Improvement is to be expected. NAVY ACE — Was a beaten favorite when away to a very poor start in his last. Better racing luck could make the difference. THIRTY LOVE— Turned in a poor effort in a race won by his stablemate here, but is capable of Jaetter and will bear watching. LANCASTER LADY— Was impressive in her initial outing and should not remain in the maiden ranks long. IDLE PLATTER— Had a rough trip in finishing second here last week and must be given an edge over similar company.
