Kentuckian Out to Add To Impressive Record Winner of All Six 1951 Starts, Ward Ace Seeks Sportsmans Stake SPORTSMANS PARK, Cicero, 111., June 9. — The nations hottest horse goes again Wednesday night at Sportsmans Park in the sulky stake for 26 class pacers. That would be Kentuckian, six-year-old son of Scotland, who has won all six of his starts this year. The handsome star was a trotter last year but Kay and Dave Ward of Bloom-ington decided to put hopples on him. With Jim Fleming in the sulky, Kentuckian has been nothing short of phenomenal, rolling up such impressive times as 2:06* 2:07% and 2:08. It seems he has just ordinary competition, too in the sixth race for ,488. Most of the 12-horse field is composed of three-year-olds who havent lived up to their breeding as yet. Ableway, the little star from Baker Acres Stable might find himself soon. Hopeful Hanover, under the steady reinsmanship of Pee Wee Welch, is another tough colt. He was out of the money his only start here, but won one and placed once in seven starts. In the second division of the stake, which goes for ,464, Roy Riegles classy little three-year-old, Red Sails, goes after his sixth race in eight starts. Reigle, who has always been a good handler of colts, seems to have had better luck than usual with Red Sails. The chestnut son of Abbot has posted victories in 2:07 and 2:08 which is good for any pacer, especially a three -year-old. The Wagner stable sends a good youngster in Fox De Lux against Red Sails, with Bob Wagner in the sulky. Red Sails will score from the No. 9 spot which puts him in the second tier. That should help even the odds, although the-Nine hole is much the same as the No. 1 if Mary C. Lee, who goes from there, gets off fast enough. Other entrants against H. T. Kings classy three-year-old are Gold Honor, Dale Wingay, Battle Prince, Jane Ann Can, Lucy F., with Spot Money, Mary C. Lee, Mrs. Flagg, and Roberta Darnley in the field. A named trot for 00 sends eight good trotters away. Buddy Patchen, Fay Scott. Clever Sunny all have victories to their credit, with Ray Scott, Brazie and Cleyer Song, coming close enough to gain interest.
