Provocative, Bullish Seek High Cloud Circus Clown Faces Denemark Entry High-Priced Claiming Event And Mata Hari Purse Also Dot Todays Lincoln Card WASHINGTON PARK, Homewood, HI., June 4. — Eight good sprinters from the older division, including W. J. Waldens Circus Clown, who was unplaced in last Saturdays Fleming Memorial, and Mrs. Emil Denemarks Provocative, a late scratch from that race, have been entered for the seven-furlong High Cloud Purse, which features Lincoln Fields program tomorrow at Washington Park. Seven other sprinters of more than ordinary quality were named for a six-furlong dash, which precedes the feature. There is also a good race called the Sir Barton for three-year-old maidens, and another, the Mata Hari, for two-year-old maiden fillies, including several candidates for next Saturdays Miss America Stakes. Circus .Clown, winner of five races this season, including one here at Washington Park, and third in the Crete Handicap, went to the post the third choice in the wagering for the Fleming last Saturday. But he could do no better than finish sixth after turning in his dullest performance of the year, while Wine List and Roman Bath finished one-two for Hasty House Farm in hew track record time. The veteran Bullish, a stake winner, of former years, was entered by the Denemark stable, along with Provocative, winner of his only start this season. Bullish has started seven times this year, got a part of six purses, but so far has failed to get the big end of one. Mr. Fox Recent Winner Others entered for the High Cloud are Mrs. Mabel McCabes Mr. Fox, recent winner here; J. A. Chambers Chilean-bred Mister Morgan, Ray Wilkinsons Fleet Factor, Endovina and Kontos Cacomo, and Murray Hill Farms Boo Boo Shoo.

Mr. Fox has won four, Fleet Factor and Boo Boo Shoo, two each; while the 1949 Arkansas Derby winner, Cacomo, won a good race at Keeneland and got a piece of four others in six starts this season. Under conditions of the race he is highweight with 121 pounds, conceding from two to 12 pounds to his rivals, Bullish and Mister Morgan being the lightweights with 109. The seven sprinters in the fifth race carry claiming tags ranging from 0,000 to ,000. With the exception of the Alsab Farm filly. Visional, they are all good winners this year.
