Unlike half-mile Sportsmans Park, the band in the Inaugu-1 ral will only be obliged to make -one turn ; as they will break from the chute and run ■ about half the distance before rounding a bend, the Homewood course being one and one-eighth miles in circumference. Splendid Florida Form 5 The highweight and likely favorite in the I first feature of the big time racing season r is Sabaean, who will be making his first start • of the year and in fact of his career, north ; of the Mason-Dixon Line.

Creechs Kosadus, and the Murray Hill Farms Boo Boo Shoo. The latter was victorious in the Sportsmans Park Inaugural but failed in later races. Hypostyle, who has not been asked to go over seven furlongs in his last 10 starts, was second to Boo Boo Shoo in the Sportsmans Park Inaugural, then defeated Not Sorry and others, but in his most recent essay bowed to Phantom Sea. Neither Little Flower or Kosadus were successful at the Cicero course. The remainder of the featured opening day field will be made up of Mrs. Emil Denemarks seven-year-old Bullish, Mrs. Mattie Toffels imported five-year-old Owens Cuts, and Mrs. Ely Mucklers three-year-old filly, Ruthred. All three raced at Oaklawn Park, where Ruthred was a starter in the Arkansas Derby. She finished seventh in that mile and one-eighth race after having been in second place for over one mile. Bullish, stable companion of Ruhe, recently got in from Churchill Downs. His last start, however, was at Oaklawn Park, where he was beaten off in a race won by Owens Cuts. Bullish has finished first but once in his last 20 starts. Owens Cuts, in winning his last start at Oaklawn, beat Cacomo and Battle H., among others. Officers of the Lincoln Fields Racing Association are sanguine that the coming meeting will exceed that of last spring in popularity. General manager Peter ODon-nell points to the fact that eight horses that started in the Kentucky Derby are on the grounds and that more prominent stables than ever are present. Many thoroughbreds on whom the public obtained a line during the half-mile session at Sportsmans will take part in several of the races. Jess D., Reade Castle and Viscount Gino in the first; Grand Isle, Junior Wolf and On the River in the second; Mr. Dink, Sir David, Caillou Rouge and Beau Cadet in the fifth; Sugar Pete, First Tenet, The Peer and Deep Water in the seventh, and Fancy Festival, Trumpeter and Leapo-lino in the eighth.
