Nine Three-Year-Olds In Newburyport Purse In Taste Appears to Be Class of Field in Suffolk Downs Sprint SUFFOLK DOWNS, East Boston, Mass., May 22. — Three-year-olds will be in the limelight for tomorrows mid-week program at Suffolk Downs. Nine average sophomores, representing eight different interests, are slated to compete in the six furlongs Newburyport Purse. Included in the line-up are two invaders which figure prominently off their best efforts. The class of the Newburyport appears to be centered on Mrs. J. Purpuras In Taste, who recently raced against Loridale, Pictus and others in a thrilling dash. Although the Condiment— Til the Night filly failed to impress in her engagement against the top three-year-olds here, she was not disgraced. Repeatedly in close quarters and unable to show any speed, In Taste was not persevered with when her rider acknowledged her defeat in the late stages. Last fall at Rockingham Park, In Taste raced well in top company. C. A. ONeil, Jr.s, Airpak was highly regarded last summer at Detroit, and the Florida owner is hopeful that his Ariel Game colt will improve during the current season. Not raced in Florida, although kept under light training, Airpak has been carefully prepped for the 1951 debut and he may be tough to handle. The other invaders, E. M. OBriens Aps-ley, comes here from Belmont Park, where he finished third in a fast-run allowance dash behind Away Away and Little Falls. Prior to that the Pictor gelding won a middle distance event at Jamaica. Under the conditions of tomorrows feature, Apsley must pick up top weight of 122, five more than tlie actual weight to be carried by In Taste. The remainder of the field for the Newburyport is comprised of Mrs. J. Kelleys College Queen and Go Between, Anthony Cataldos War Token, R. W. Collins Miss Margo, Greenbrier Stables Daughter C, and E. B. Ogdens Flying Boots. College Queen and War Token boast of winning efforts this year and must rate consideration by those endorsements.
