Six of Better Grade Three-Year-Olds At Detroit Vie in Grosse Pointe Purse Flashy Kay Looms Favorite i Over Sale Price, Rare Knave, Beauty Spot at Six Furlongs By DON FAIR Staff Correspondent DETROIT, Mich., June 4. — The Grosse Pointe Purse, a six-furlong sprint for three-year-olds,- is to feature a well-balanced program -tomorrow at this correctly-appointed Livonia course. The. top attraction drew the entries of six of the better sophomores quartered here and the race shapes up as an unusually interesting offering inasmuch as it will furnish a further line on the local members of the three-year-old age division. Mrs. George C. Whites Flashy Kay, a homebred daughter of Petrose and Hasty Kay, is the overnight favorite for the Grosse Pointe and she will go to the post in the dash under 105 pounds. Trainer George White stated this morning that the filly is to have the saddle services of the capable reinsman, Eddie Danhauer. Arrayed against Flashy Kay will be George A. Sacks Rare Knave, 105; Ivan D. Peats improved Money Lender, 110; Mrs. Otto C. Neumanns The Farms Beauty Spot, 114; Grace Kosiba Stables Ky- ►-— ■ . raidiner, 114, and Mrs. E. Johnstons hardhitting Sale Price, 109 pounds. Tommy Barrow is to handle Money Lender, apprentice Gerald Champagne will be astride Rare Knave, Sherman Armstrong drew the mount on Sale Price and Darrell Madden, leading rider at the current meeting, will be up on Beauty Spot. Flashy Kay .made her seasonal debut May 26 in the three-quarter mile Detroit Purse, finishing second to G and G Stables Dear Tint, who stepped this distance in 1:11%. The White filly probably will improve off her recent effort and she is remembered by Motor City patrons for several clever performances turned in during the 1950 Michigan season. Sale Price, second to Tiger Matt in the Livonia Purse, undoubtedly will be the one to give Flashy Kay the sternest opposition in the Grosse Pointe. Victor in a pair of Chicago engagements before coming here, Sale Price was beaten two ,nd one-half lengths by Tiger Matt and those finishing behind her oh that occasion were Night Parade, Arpege and Beauty Spot. The last named filly failed to show her best form v in the Livonia, but she hadnt been under silks previous to that event since last September when she defeated Flashy Kay, Bona Eternal and Legendaire, racing three-quarters over the Detroit Continued on Page Thirty-Four Gross e Pointe Purse Lures Six Sophomores Postward Continued from Page One course in 1:11%. That performance stamped her as a better-than-average juvenile and, before that outing, the Cold-streamlbred daughter of Bull Dog won at five-eighths in :59%. The best supporting number is the fourth race, a four and one-half furlongs dash for two-year-olds. G and G Stables Dixville and James Paddocks First Heir, which pair will xace coupled, perhaps will go to the post choice over seven rivals. Others named for the secondary event are the M. and I. Prickett entry, Saddlers Joy and Choice Bits; Henry Forrests duo, Cotton Ginny and Flaneur; Felix J. DeMarys homebred Royal Hazel; Mrs. A. C. Roths New Orleans-owned George Davie, and C. E. Nelsons Masterson.
