Consistent Dauntedid Suffolk Downs Choice Lingle Speedster After Third Success of 1951 Season Today SUFFOLK DOWNS, East Boston, Mass., May 9. — Dauntedid, Mrs. J. M. Lingles Speedy colorbearer, appears well on the igttf to duplicate his consistent form of R*50 when he finished in the money 17 times during 26 starts. Already during the current season, the son of He Did — Daunt, has accounted for two victories in four starts and tomorrow should add to that total with a triumph over five rivals in the featured dash here. He is matched against Great Shuffle, Count-A-Bit, Deeside, Til-enny and Peace Mission. In his last start here, Dauntedid, cut out a rapid pace against such speedsters as Sedgeview, Long Gone and Outland only to wilt under the pressure in the final furlong. The race was won by Sedgeview in 1:10% and off that race, the victor was installed the favorite in last Saturdays Governors Handicap won by Algasir. The Lingle gelding appears in a softer spot tomorrow, but will have to go on about his business and make no mistakes. Count-A-Bit holds a trace of class from former years and his last two races at Gulfstream Park indicate he is back at peak form. In those events he was a winner and beaten a nose, respectively, by highly regarded sprinters. It will be the first start of the meeting for the Blaser-owned stallion and should he take kindly to the racing strip, he could extend the choice to his utmost. Deeside displayed a high turn of early speed in his only outing here and the benefit sure to come from that effort, makes him a threat in tomorrows six-furlong test. Owner-trainer Nick Burger is a thorough conditioner and probably has his charge ready for a top effort. The son of Coldstream was sparingly raced since 1949 when he last posted a victory. Great Shuffle is an erratic performer as his record points out. In a race here on April 26, the Great War gelding was a fast closing second to Scipio, but in his next start, he was well beaten while finishing last. Peace Mission was recently purchased by his present owner, E. E. Gaige, at Jamaica and his lone start here in the Gaige silks found him quitting in a middle distance event. The Peace Chance colt won nine races last year, however, and must be conceded a chance off that record alone. Tilenny is better suited at longer routes and tomorrows race may serve as a conditioner for the mile and a sixteenth Commonwealth Handicap to be run here on Saturday.
