Heavy Shipments Due at Arlington Over 200 Horses Now in Quarters Rice Unit Due From East Tomorrow; Trio of Stakes Close for Entries June 16 Activity in the stable area at Arlington Park is increasing daily as the June 18 opening of the 36-day meeting rapidly draws near. Superintendent Martin "Duke" Penter reports well over 200 horses in training at the spacious Northwest Side track with heavy shipments during the week at hand expected to swell the colony to capacity by the time entries are drawn Saturday for the inaugural program. The recent arrival of Buddy Hirsch with 20 head, including a division of the King Ranch string, has swelled the total considerably. Included in the King Ranch group are Black Douglas, an eligible for the Washington Park Handicap, and Curandero, named for both the Arlington and Washington Park Handicaps. Among the two-year-olds is the Roman filly Islay Miss Arlington Lassie, Princess Pat Stakes, and Mac, the Bimelech — Bee Mac colt, named for the Arlington Futurity. The Californian Ruth Lily, Old English Ranchos candidate for the Cleopatra lineup, arrived at Midway airport, Chicago, Saturday afternoon, and was vanned to the Arlington course where she will be trained by Charles Leavitt. Arrangements are being made for the arrival of Mrs. Ada L. Rices stable of 25 horses tomorrow. Johns Joy Myrflewood Nominee Racing secretary Frank E. Kilroe reminded owners Saturday of the closing on June 16 of nominations for the inaugural running of the 0,000-added Warren Wright Memorial Stakes . This rara. a seven-furlong sprint for three-year-olds, will be run for the first time on June 27. Also closing on June 16 are the 5,000-added Hyde Park Stakes, first added-mon-ey event for two-year-olds at the Arlington Park meeting, and the 0,000-added Modesty Handicap for fillies and mares, three years old and upward. These two races will be run as a June 30 double-header. Meanwhile, J. A. Kinards Johns Joy has joined the list of .eligibles for the Myrtle-wood Handicap, opening-day feature, and is also named as a candidate for the Equipoise Mile to be run on the first Saturday of the meeting. Johns Joy, apparently a horse with a new lease on his racing ability in 1951, has already equaled his 1950 earnings of 6,-520, and he recently broke a 30-year-old track record to * win the seven-furlong Churchill Downs Handicap. Beaten a head was Hasty House Farms Roman Bath, who later won the Crete Handicap at Washington Park, and is also among the nominees for the Myrtlewood Handicap and Equipoise. Roman Bath and Johns Joy are also eligible for the one-mile Washington Park Handicap to be run during the second half of the Arlington-Washington meeting.
