High Grade Sprinters Go lii Golden Melody Purse King Mowlee and Little Harp To Match Strides at Pimlico PIMLICO, Baltimore, Md., May 21.— Sprinters of the 0,000 to ,000 claiming variety have played a prominent role in Maryland racing this spring and they return to the featured position tomorrow afternoon in the six-furlong Golden Melody Purse, for three - year - olds and upwards. Named for the dash are L. W. Jennings Little Harp, Alan T. Clarkes King Mowlee, R. Roy McClarins Abbottstown, C. E. Brinings Marengo, Jerry McCarthys Pollys Delay, Taylor Leatherburys Eastern Fly-way, Mrs. H. K. Hickeys Trimship and Grandview Stables Clean Broom. All members of the field have performed creditably this spring, with King Mowlee and Little Harp displaying good form as recently as this past Saturday, when they were second and fourth, respectively, behind Eagle Eye in 1:11%. King Mowlee, another of Alakings successful sons, has raced four times this season, winning for ,000 and ,000, then finishing second for i ,500 and 0,000. Little Harp, a stakes winner several seasons back, has yet to win this year in four starts, but has been no worse than fourth while competing against claimers ranging from 0,000 down to ,000. Marengo proved a successful claim for owner - trainer Brining, having been acquired for ,000 earlier in the Maryland season. The Warlock colt has since won two races, as well as finishing second twice and third once in a quintet of starts. His last resulted in a victory over Weatherman and Choralier in 1:12%. Another who entered a hew barn earlier this spring is Trimship, who was acquired from the Walter M. Jeffords Stable following a galloping victory. He won at first asking for Mrs. Hickey and has since been fourth, fifth and third in three engagements. He is, incidentally, the lone three-year-old in the Golden Melody. Abbottstown and Clean Broom have each scored a single victory this year and have spent recent weeks commuting between this point and Garden State Park. Abbottstown scored impressively over Little Harp and others at Bowie and was unplaced in his last start in New Jersey; in_which he was beaten less than five lengths by Elope over a sloppy track. Clean Broom has not visited the winners circle since scoring over the turf course at Hialeah, although a recent route race here was satisfactory. Pollys Delay and Eastern Flyway, while their races have been good, are without brackets for the 1951 season. Pollys Delay made his last start at Garden State on May 12 and was a bit more than three lengths behind Blazing while sporting a claiming tag of ,000. Eastern Flyway has been campaigned exclusively in Maryland and has failed to win in seven starts. In his last appearance he was five lengths behind Oriole in 1:11%.
