Many Added Features Planned On Massachusetts Program SUFFOLK DOWNS, East Boston, Mass., June 6. — Babe Didrikson Zaljarias, the worlds greatest woman athlete whose golf wizardry has thrilled thousands, will provide one of many features at Suffolk Downs next Wednesday, with the Massachusetts Handicap day program that promises to top" last years all-day spectacle. With the seventeenth running of the 5,000 Massachusetts as the feature, a brilliant all-day program has been built around the race. In addition to Babe Didrikson Zaharias, there will be a special match race between the "hottest" apprentice riders in the nation, Charlie Burr and Ralph Borgemenke; the appearance of Dagmar of television fame, a 90-minute horse show, a stable area inspection in buses, jockey foot races and many other highlights. The gates will open at 10 a. m. and there wont be a quiet moment until somewhere in the neighborhood -of 6 oclock that evening when the last race is completed. There is every indication that this 1951 program will far exceed the 1950 innovation which met with such marked success.
