Whirling Dough Faces Six on Turf Recently Hung Up Mile Track Record Marsch Racer Has Swap Out, Owens Cuts, Boo Boo Shoo to Beat in Lincolns Feature WASHINGTON PARK, Homewood, HI., May 21. — Whirling Dough, a track record holder from Churchill Downs, will make his first start of the Lincoln-at-Washington -season here tomorrow and will, in all probability, be the public choice. The son of Whirlaway, who races in the silks of John Marsch, will travel one and one-eighth miles against some proven distance runners in the Paul Bunyan Purse, which will be decided over the turf course and he will have jockey Doug Dodson in the saddle. His opponents will be Boo Boo Shoo, from the Murray Hill Farm stable; Swap Out, owned by Hasty House Farm; Grumpito, representing Eugene Constan-tin, Jr.; Owens Cuts, owned by Mrs. Hattie Toff el; Floating Crown, owned by Mrs. J. L. Oglesby, and Little Flower, recently obtained by the Mariano Stable from William H. Bishop. Boo Boo Shoo, who won the Inaugural Handicap at Sportsmans Park and was second to Kosadus in the Lincoln Fields Inaugural, has the top weight under the conditions. He will carry 120, while Whirling Dough gets in with 114. Among Whirling Doughs victims at Churchill Downs when he ran his record-making pace, was Shy Guy, regarded as one of the strong j handicapper runners hereabouts. Next time out the Marsch horse finished seventh in a race won by Black George. Swap Out, who is a King Ranch product, will carry 117 pounds and will be piloted by Ken Church: He won close to 7,000 in purse money last year. In his most recent effort, the Clark Handicap at Louisville, he was unplaced. Wistful was the winner. Irish Importation Owens Cuts, like Ballydam, from the same stable, is an Irish importation. He finished fifth in the Inaugural here after having won his previous start in the Porty and Eight Purse at Oaklawn Park. His record for the season is one victory in five starts. Little Flower was winner of a couple of races at New Orleans during the winter, but so far has failed to click in several starts in this district this spring. Floating Clown won seven races last year, and Grumpito connected twice at Hialeah before being shipped north. The secondary attraction of the day will be the Montaro Purse, at six furlongs, with Tiger Harris, a galloping winner last time out, among the starters. Occupational and Royal Irish, both beaten by him last time out, will face him again as will Adams Off-Ox, of the Walmac Farm; Belcon, a well-regarded maiden, and several others. Two of the most promising candidates for Saturdays Joliet Stakes engaged in good trials recently. Red Curtice, winner of the Bashford mannor, breezed three-eighths in :35%, and Errar ts Regards in :35%. Of the 46 nominated for the Joliet, about 12 are expected to start.
