Bold Bolo After Third Purse at Suffolk Downs Pine Tree Farm Runner Carries 114 While Engaging Afterwards SUFFOLK DOWN, East Boston, Mass., June 6. — A pair of allowance events, the first for three-year-olds at six furlongs, named the Brockton, and the other a mile and a sixteenth test for older horses, named the Taunton, feature tomorrows card at Suffolk Downs. Each event has-seven overnight eligibles. The shorter race will have College Queen, Sailing High, Johns Choice, Revokar, Bleary Bob, Summer Cruise and Larry Ellis matching strides. Of that group, College Queen will probably be sent postward in the role" of favorite,* with Johns Choice and Revokar representing the chief contention. In the Taunton, Pine Tree Farms greatly improved Bold Bolo appears well suited under his impost of 114 pounds. A winner of two of his three starts here this season, the son of Bold and Bad had compiled a record of six straight triumphs, three of which were extended from his 1950 cam- paign, prior to his recent defeat by Out-land. Foremost among the rivals for Bold Bolo to conquer is J. H. Carrs Afterwards, a daughter of Equistone. She was an impressive victor of her last start, defeating Lefty Jim, two lengths while traveling six furlongs. Tomorrows added distance, plus the fact that Afterwards gets in under a feathery impost of 103 pounds, makes her a decided threat. J. H. Hughes Vital Sun holds a trace of class and, although the five-year-old has failed to earn brackets this season, he can not be eliminated in the Taunton line-up. Last fall in Maryland, the son of Equistone — Sun Ginger, fared very well against some of the top handicap horses in training. Usually confined to sprints in most of his races, Vital Sun is capable of handling the middle distance and may take a long lead and never be headed. The others in the Taunton are Long V Gone, Judys Runner, Fly Around and Great Shuffle. Long Gone has been displaying speed in .recent sprints and figures to be a factor as far as he can carry the speed.
