Aunt Jayne Z. Seeking Repeat Score at Downs Autan, Pnut Vendor, My Sister Seen as Principal Contenders CHURCHILL DOWNS, Louisville, Ky., May 14. — James C. Ellis Aunt Jayne Z., a four-year homebred daughter of Shaka-mak and Miss May R., heads a field of seven sprinters slated to clash here tomorrow in the six furlongs sixth race, one of the better offerings on a well-balanced program. Aune Jayne Z., 1949 Debutante Stakes victress and winner of her last local engagement, probably will go to the post favorite and she is to have the saddle services of Elvie Hust. The Ellis filly, who displayed rare courage in annexing her recent victory over Moola, Challorette, Cold Spy, and other useful racers, gets in the Tuesday feature with 109 pounds. Her major opposition is quite likely to come from Mrs. C. C. Normans French-bred Autan, Eugene Con-stantin, Jr.s Pnut Vendor, and Mrs. Leo Wagners My Sister. Others named for the dash are Joseph Mallias Is There, Brent and Talbots Tiger Rebel, and D. J. Gleasons Chombro. • Pnut Vendor ran second in his local engagement to Thomas Grays Old Tom. giving an unusually sharp effort in a three-quarter mile overnight race. Previous to his latest outing, the Constantin stable gelding raced quite well in Florida and he was a three-time winner during his 1950 campaign. Kenneth Church, top reinsman, is to handle Pnut Vendor. My Sister, a homebred daughter of Jim-mie Moran and Pineaway, was beaten off behind Old Tom and Pnut Vendor but she won three races last year and is always partial to the local strip. Hustling Lois Cook is to guide the Wagner mare. Is There and Chombro were defeated in their last appearances under silks. Is There annexed three races in 1950, was four times second and nine times third but could not crash the winners circle while Chombros best race this season was at Hialeah in February. The Gleason gelding was beaten a nose by Manchac in a seven furlongs race after making the pace for the greater part of that trip. He also won two races during his Florida campaign. Autan, a well made four-year-old gelding, not only won on the flat last season but also took down major honors in a pair of turf course races. The imported son of Tornado hasnt been to the post thus far in 1951 but trainer Charles Norman has brought the horse along steadily and he is expected to give a good effort tomorrow.
