- __ — Ummlmi — ft Lincoln Fields Notebook By J. J. MURPHY WASHINGTON PARK, Homewood, 111., May 22. — Any connection between Red Curtice, likely favorite for Saturdays __ — - Joliet Joliet Stakes, Stakes, and and Cur- : Joliet Joliet Stakes, Stakes, and and Cur- Curtice, who finished third in that two-year-old event in 1949, is purely coincidental. Not so the relationship between Errards Guide, who may be the second choice in this years affair, and Errard who was second in 1944. For Errards Guide is a son of of Errard Errard and and will will be be , Ummlmi of of Errard Errard and and will will be be bidding for the honors in the silks of Ethel Galliger Bandy, daughter of the late Pat Galliger who for a number of years served as an official on Chicago tracks. Both Red Curtice and Errards Guide showed their fitness for the test when they breezed three-eighths in better than :36, recently. Another son of two races in four starts this year. Hudgens, who may be Red Curtices running companion in the Denemark silks, was favored in one division of the Lafayette Stakes at Keeneland in which he finished third. Red Curtice was second to Crownlet in the other end. He, too, was the choice. Ike Bassett, of the Jockeys Guild, left for Detroit where he will attend the opening: of the MBA meeting-. He will later journey to River* Downs, Ohio, for the opening: of that session. Bassett reports that the boost in jockeys valet rates last year from to on a winner and ?3 to on a loser cost the Guild members over 5,000. . Knox Osborne, former owner, arrived from Louisville for a few days of the sport. . Felix Rando, who specializes in sea food in his New Orleans restaurant, checked in from the Crescent City and will remain for several days . . . Larry Keating-, who subbed for Harry Trotsek in saddling Roman Bath for his Crete Handicap win, trained the colt when he was in the stable of John Marsch. . .The five-day charity session that opened the Illinois season at Sportsmans Park netted 4,737 for the Herald-American Fund. Fairy story: There was a little man and he had a little gun and ahunting he went. His name was Johnny Adams and he went hunting deer but instead of mounted antlers on the walls he now has three bear rugs adorning the living room. Seems Johnny sighted a deer and when about to draw a bead found himself faced by a big black bear. John gib so angry about missing his buck he shot that bear and went out and hunted down a couple more just for spite. If horses could read they would know enough not to play any tricks on John. . Dixiana will have a good line-up of racers for the coming meetings in the Chicago area. The large company in charge of Jack Hodgins features Shy Guy, six-year-old son of Challedon. Jack A. Chambers, Memphis oil man, has a number of horses here in charge of Amadee Jeanfreau. One is Bolingover, a four-year-old, who at one time was so badly injured it was feared he would never race again. The colt met with his mishap after finishing second to Roman Bath in the Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes of 1949 . Apprentice Leon Grand-Continued on Page Thirty-Four * I LINCOLN FIELDS I NOTEBOOK Continued from Page Three N sart, who got off to a fairly good start at Sportesmans Park, left for Fairmount Park where he will do the lightweight riding for his contract employer, Carl Blair, and also for the R. T. McDonnel stable... The Louisville-owned stable of Augustus and Nahm, whose silks were carried to an American Derby victory in 1946 by Eternal Reward, recently checked in. . .Milton Rieser has some horses owned by Wathen Knebelkamp, member of the Kentucky State Racing Commission, in the lot he brought in from Louisville . . . Cullerton, a J o 1 i e t Stakes eligible, recently worked three-eighths in :35H.

Count Turfs trainer, who reportedly missed a plane for Louisville on Derby eve, has nothing on Harry Trotsek, who missed his flight for New York to saddle Oil Capitol in the Metropolitan and turned up in Louisville where he saddled a couple of winners. ... Incidentally, Trotsek has a new apprentice from Kentucky in Henry Schab, who rode his first winner during the Keeneland meeting. Trotsek hopes he will turn out as well as Ken Church. . .Church, by the way, will depart for his native Canada Friday night and will have the mount on Don Stan in the Kings Plate at Woodbine, Saturday... William Hal Bishop, leading trainer, seldom dabbles in two-year-olds, but was of the opinion that Marie Eileen at ,000 was too much of a bargain to miss. She is now a resident of the Bishop barn via the claiming route. Looks like rain as this is written, but wet or dry the. following should give a good account of themselves tomorrow: DELHANNAH in the second race, NON FERRO in the fifth, and PENSIVE LADY in the seventh.
