"V .; ., , ■•■av JUDGES STAND . C/M*LK HATT0N CHURCHILL DOWNS, LouisviUe, Ky., May 9. — The first running of the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes at Pim-lico on Saturday is next of the important events for three-year-old fillies, and it will have a death-and-taxes favorite if Senor Luro saddles Herman Delmans How for it. She won won the the Kentucky Kentucky Oaks Oaks pricking pricking her her won won the the Kentucky Kentucky Oaks Oaks pricking pricking her her ears, as if she will stay the extra furlong of the Black-Eyed Susan, which is at a mile and three-sixteenths. The Black-Eyed Susan is virtually a renewal of the Pimlico Oaks under another and more original name, and this 5,000 along with the increases announced in the Monmouth Oaks, Newcastle and Arlington Matron Handicaps should enhance the appeal of sales fillies. There are, incidentally, some nice ones to be offered this summer, including a sister to Tilly Rose at Keeneland. Tilly Rose probably will point next for the Acorn Stakes at Belmont Park. Bob Klebergs filly is a beautiful mover and she was meeting the first defeat of her career in the Kentucky Oaks, in which she was the public choice. The Texan is a prospect for the opulent roster of filly-and-mare stakes to be presented at Arlington and Washington Parks during the Chicago area summer season. These begin with the 5,000 Cleopatra on June 20 and range through the 0,000 Modesty Stakes, 0,000 Arlington Matron, 0,000 Misty Isle Stakes and 5,000 Beverly Handicap. AAA Chicago clubs hardly can help being optimistic about the fact they will enjoy a successful season in view of public response to Sportsmans Park cards. Lincoln-at-Washington will open next Tuesday for a run of 29 racing days with an increased distribution, and Pete ODonnell looks forward to offering competition among a higher grade of horses. There is an unfortunate conflict with the last five programs here at Churchill Downs, and ,we suppose there will be the customary exodus of strings First Black-Eyed Susan Next Filly Event Lincoln Prepares for Tuesday Inaugural Ontario Solons Issue New Book of Rules Get of Claiborne Sires in Epsom Stakes from the Louisville course during the week ahead. The 5,000 Peabody Memorial on Memorial Day will be the piece de resistance of the Lincoln Fields meet, and this stake is expected to attract some of the three-year-olds that appeared in the Kentucky Derby, among them Ruhe, Fighting Back, Anyoldtime, Sir Bee Bum and Snuzzle, along with such as Kings Hope, Bernwood and The Gink. AAA The Ontario Racing Commission has promulgated a new book of rules, and they contain a few variations on those enforced in most of our racing states. For example, the recent vitamin B-l case in New England has focused a good deal of attention on the rules governing medication for horses. Most state regulations expressly prohibit administering any medication within 48 hours of a race, and these include Massachusetts. Apparently officials there regard Vitamin B-l as a medicine and illegal, and elements in it are said to be detectable in an urinalysis test for days after it is administered. Michigan last season deleted the 48 hours clause, as it had been employed by some- horsemen as an excuse to scratch. The Ontario rule reads that "No horse to which has been administered any chemicals, medicine, patent remedies or drugs whatsoever within 48 hours before post time of the day of the race, shall be entitled to start in such race unless the trainer shall have reported the fact to the stewards and they have consented to the horse racing." Many tonics contain a mild stimulant, and there is a dim suspicion in official circles these drugs sometimes have been supplemented. The Ontario Rules are rather provincial in certain particulars. For example, they insist upon one race daily for the produce of Dominion studs. And Rule 425 provides that "In all races except handicaps and races where the conditions expressly state to the contrary, a weight allowance of seven pounds will be made for Canadian-bred horses two and three years old, and five pounds for older Canadian-bred horses." This is not very complimentary to Canadian performers. It is just our opinion Illinois has the most progressive homebred rule. This one provides a bonus for winners bred in the state, but asks no special races nor weight concessions. AAA Claiborne stallions have some kind of chance of being represented by the winners of both +he Epsom Derby and Epsom Oaks this season. Recently it was noted William Woodwards Derby prospect Turco is a son of Fighting Fox, who carried his famous white, red spots and now stands at the Hancocks Paris, Ky., stud. More recently, the filly Belle of All, who is by the syndicated Nasrullah, captured the 1,000 Guineas, which is the most important preview of the Epsom Oaks. Nasrullah now is making his first U. S. stud season at Claiborne. His mates include the dams of Battle Morn, Black Tarquin, Gold Capitol and Cosmic Missile.
