Select Band of Sprinters In Garden State Offering Call Over Is Expected to Rule Choice Over Istan, Carolina Miss GARDEN STATE PARK, Camden, N. J., May 22.— A small but select band of sprinters, comprising some of the fleetest racers at this course, promise an exciting contest of the six-furlong Reciprocity Purse, which will feature the sport at this point tomorrow. Only two of the eight contestants have failed to win at least one purse this season and one of these, Jess Linthicum, is just making his .debut. Bedford Stables Call Over will likely be given the role of favorite in recognition of a victory in the Rowe Memorial, and his several other good ef- I forts in stakes competition. | His task will hot be easy, however, and he is opposed by Brookfield Farms Istan, Joseph Gavegnanos Pensava, Palatine Stables Yes You, J. A. Polantes Larry A., Cay C. Boshamers Carolina Miss, John L. McKnights Mr. Buster, and the aforementioned Jess Linthicum, representing H. B. Cohen. Call Over, a shifty four-year-old colt by Devil Diver and Duchess Anita, is capable of either racing with the pace or coming from behind. In a change of tactics, trainer Eddie Yowell has apparently preferred to have Call Over race slightly behind the leaders in the majority of his races this season, with excellent results. Jimmy Stout, the leading rider of this meeting, has been given the mount and he can be expected to perform the job well. Call Over was unsuccessful invading New York in his last start, and on this occasion was sent out to set the early pace. He gave way to pressure from Sheilas Reward after a half-mile and finished sixth behind Tea-Maker, who was disqualified. The best of his eight races this season were two allowance victories at Hialeah, his triumph over The Pincher in the Rowe Memorial, and a smashing second to Symposium in the Camden Handicap here early in the meeting. Istan, who occasionally flashes brilliant speed but is not always dependable, finished a poor last in his most recent outing, which was in the one mile and 70 yards Valley Forge Handicap, almost three weeks ago. He previously turned in a nice effort to win an allowance race here, and he finished third with no apparent excuse, behind Call Over in the Rowe Memorial. The veteran son of Heliopolis prefers to race in front, but he will have a great deal of competition in setting the, pace tomorrow. Carolina Miss, the lightweight of the field, has shown excellent speed in her two local starts, and displayed particularly quick foot in her last, although unable to stave off a late charge from the steadily-improving Yes You. The record is able to speak for most of the entrants, but Pensava and Mr. Buster may have had some excuse in their last ones. Mr. Buster encountered interference that effectively eliminated his chances, while Pensava apparently did not wish to race on the inside of horses and sulked.
