Fleming Memorial Handicap here tomorrow. Six of the 10 entered for the 0,000 added week-end race took part in the Crete and they seem capable of holding their ow,n with the quartet who will contest the issue with them. The Crete horses are those who finished in the first half dozen positions in that race, namely, Roman Bath,-Sabaean, Circus Clown, Prop, Johns Joy and Sun David. Their rivals will be Wine List and Seaward, who will race coupled with Roman Bath, Provocative, a winner at this meeting, and French Admiral.

Johns Joy will tote 119. Scores by Almost Two Lengths In once again referring to the Crete, It is noted that Roman Bath displayed considerable Speed in that race, being closest to the pacemaking Irishman, Ballydam, in the first part, and taking over in the stretch to score by almost two lengths. Sabaean, in running second, made a creditable move in the stretch to best Circus Clown by a neck. Circus Clown followed his Crete effort with a victory over Seaward and seems very sharp, at present. Prop and Johns Joy were outrun all the way. Johns Joy, following his record-making race at Churchill Downs, was the favorite, with Roman Bath the second choice. Roman Bath will again be ridden by jockey Ken Church, but the care of Johns Joy will be entrusted to William Cook, a switch from Job Dean Jessop. The latter will be aboard Provocative. Doug Dodson, recovered from bruises sustained in a Thursday spill, will be aboard Sun David, with leading rider, Johnny Adams, back on Circus Clown and Paul Bailey again astride Sabaean.

The Hasty House .entry of Roman Bath, Seaward, and "Wine List will undoubtedly be favored, and if all three go postward, the place and show pools should be swelled considerably as at least two of the triumvirate have a good chance to be in the money.

Matt Winn in the old American Racing Association.
